Legends of the Street: The Roots of Japanese Racing Manga/Anime
Hosted by Noborigumi Project

: Fast cars, winding mountain roads, hot tempers, blistering straightaways, bitter rivalries, friendships and grudges; racing anime/manga like Initial D, Wangan Midnight, and Shakotan Boogie, have all these. But do you know their roots in the real-life Japanese street racing scene? Come and bask in the rich history of Japan’s legit and underground racing and tuning culture, and get familiar with the media it inspired—and which have reshaped it in turn, and has now spread across the world as the ‘JDM’ phenomenon. Don’t miss it!
