FUNimation announced at NYAF this year that they had acquired the licensing rights Initial D to poison the minds of the young. Not only do they get to sell this anime, they also will be putting out a new dub and include the original sound track so they can have the crazy eurobeats playing. Don’t forget that it will be uncut.
Currently there is no set release date, but I would be expecting an early 2010 to spring 2010 release.
