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.

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.

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.

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 Task says...

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!

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.

Gen Todoroki, a talented but accident-prone rally driver, gets offered a sponsoring deal by a big-shot car company—and the deal comes with a chance at the Safari Rally Kenya championship. But the road there is bumpy and rich with tough competitors...

Speed Racer

Speed Racer

Speed Racer drives the fabulous Mach 5 in race after race, although the prize money isn't his true goal: he seeks to be the best racer in the world, and to defeat the mysterious Racer X (not knowing that Racer X is actually his long lost older brother, Rex Racer)! The races don't take place upon the boring circular tracks that one might expect; instead, they tend to involve the countryside, and rough and dangerous terrain. This is where the Mach 5's special features, such as super traction tires and jumping struts come in very handy. Speed must also deal with villains ranging from unscrupulous racers to thieves and spies, but he has the help of Trixie, his little brother Spridle, and the pet monkey ChimChim along the way.
