Wangan Midnight

Wangan Midnight

Asakura Akio is a young student and street racer who has a beloved car – a first generation S30 Nissan Fairlady 240 Z. Immediately upon discovering it in a scrap yard he's attracted to it, an attraction that later grows into an obsession. After restoring the car to its former glory with his friends he takes it down a stretch of highway known as Wangan to challenge its king, the "Black Bird." The more Asakura learns about the car and its dark history, the more he wants to master driving this dangerous "Akuma no Z" (The Devil's Z) and claim the title of Wangan's master for himself...

Both Wangan Midnight and Initial D are about a high school student who street races with a car (and he loves to race). If you liked one you'd like the other.

Nicknames

If there's one word that'd describe both anime that'd be intense. Not only they share the same genre and are about a teenager who likes racing but they have the same feeling, and you can't help but feel excited everytime you watch them. Of course there are some differences, like Wangan Midnight being more focused in tuning and racing in highways while Initial D is centered in improving their own skills and racing in mountain passes, but if you liked Initial D you'd enjoy Wangan Midnight anyway.

Capeta

Capeta

Taira Capeta has spent his entire young life being a good and dutiful son to his hardworking but impoverished widower father. Only once has his father seen him show any personal wants or needs -- when he saw a model car in a toy shop. Despite his lack of cash, his father has hatched a naïve plan to give Capeta the ultimate gift: his dreams fulfilled. From a modest beginning, Capeta, with the help of his father and his good friends Nobu and Monami, embarks upon an amateur career as a go-kart racer, aiming for the ultimate prize -- graduation into the professional ranks of formula racing. But will his poverty cause his dreams to fail?

Task

Both of these popular series focus on the same thing: Racing!

That's not all there is to them, though! The most significant part of both stories is the development of the drivers, both gaining experience and their continuing life experiences.

The racing is fantastic and extreme, but always within the bounds of possibility. The character development is constantly ongoing and the close friends and associates of the main character have surprisingly large roles to play.

Both are high quality anime featuring drivers of the youngest age possible and you get to watch them develop into the fastest drivers around. Excellent stuff!

eX-Driver

eX-Driver

In the relative near future, fossil fuel cars have gone the way of the dinosaur -- electric cars rule the landscape. And when these electric cars go bad, it’s up to the Ex-Drivers to stop them! Join Lisa and Lorna as they encounter situations revolving around them putting their souped up cars’ pedals to the metal in a showdown of slick cars and hot drivers. Speed is the name of the game and the stakes rise quicker than an RPM gauge in overdrive!

Both Initial D 4th stage and Ex-Driver leave out the comedy and purely face on the racing. Different from the other Initial D's, this one compares to Ex-Driver the best.

Initial D Battle Stage

Initial D Battle Stage
  • OVA (1 ep x 40 min)
  • 2002

Takumi has an innate ability when it comes to driving cars. Though he is not interested in street races, circumstances force him to enter anyways and take on some of the best racers around. As Mt. Akina’s top downhill racer, he defends his home turf with all his pride and takes on numerous skilled challengers and with each battle he grows more fond of racing and develops more of his racing talent. Can Takumi continue winning against these adept drivers with his outmatched and underpowered AE86?

Just as the battle battle stage, the fourth stage focuses on the races more than any other stage. Of course the battle stage is only races, still these two are the closest connected.

Slam Dunk

Slam Dunk

Sakuragi has hit an all-time low. During his last year of junior high school, fifty different girls rejected him, the last one choosing a basketball player instead. Thus it’s no surprise that in high school, Sakuragi beats up anyone who dares utter the name of the sport. However, it’s not long until he meets Haruko, a beautiful basketball enthusiast, and is determined to make her fall in love with him – even signing up for the school team to accomplish his goal. However, winning Haruko’s heart won’t be easy, as her brother is the strict and protective captain of the basketball team and Haruko’s eyes are focused on Sakuragi’s rival, the talented Rukawa. Can Sakuragi give up his delinquent ways to help get the team to Nationals, or will his temper get him kicked out before he can learn to dribble the ball?

Altough it may seam these two series don't have much in common they are so much. Yes, the calm and quiet "main driver" Takumi is very diffrerent from hot headed and loud mouth "basketlball man" Sakuragi, also the level of thei driving/basketball skills at the start of the series is so very different. But it doesn't really matter as they are both in their 18teens trying to beat any competition they meet so hard it makes you feel ashamed for not doing your best in your own field. And another thing (I trying not to spoil it here), at the end both series leave you wondering about how they both reached their ultimate goal.
