After watching all the reviews and I gave it a try. Turns out, I have never enjoyed a car race anime for such a long time right after initial D. It was really worth to spend some of my time watching this movie.
The ANIMATION and SOUND are the elements for this movie to sparkle and became one of a masterpiece of MADHOUSE yet it was kinda underrated as not many people know about this great artwork.
The story plot was great in a sense as the duration is too short to explain the whole story. It will blow up everyone mind if they consider airing this in animation sequel instead of a one-shot movie filming to explain all the author great idea and the hard work of the developer team within 2 hours. Such a waste.
Really feel the VROOOOOOM and the wind breaking sound like I am on the spot.
