Initial D Legend 1: Awakening, the first film in a trilogy that retells the beginning of Initial D. Drifting fans are well versed with the manga and anime, with professional drifter Fredric Aasbo doing a shot for shot remake of the intro to the anime prior to the beginning of this year’s season of Formula Drift.
The Initial D Legend films released in Japan between August 2014 and February 2016, but have yet to make it to US shores. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series in July and plan to release Legend 1 on home video on December 5th. They also screened the film at LA Anime Film Festival in September. If you were looking to see it theaters and didn’t make LA-AFF, then all is not lost however, as we did find out that they will be doing a theatrical release in Winter 2018. That’s all we know so far though, so we’ll update you when we have more information.
