I still haven’t been able to watch it entirely. It is so hilarious! 😀
Especially the translations are terrific! Toyota is called Nong Tian and the car is called Carrola Laiby!
I can understand the Carrola Laiby error because that is what it is pronounced as in Japanese. However you can clearly see Levin on the side of the car!
But Nong Tian?? It is clearly pronounced as Toyota!?! And produced in 1983 and 1984? It is clearly a kouki Levin, and they were produced from 1985 till 1987! I hope you can understand now why I’m having difficulty when watching this series…
Anyway, I’m now watching two Youtube movies per day during my lunchbreak, so hopefully I’ve finished this next wednesday. 😉
I was browsing through the inventory of Yesasia.com to see if there were anymore interesting deals.
I did find this little gem:
It’s the AE86 Owners Bible (not to confuse with the TRD Bible which is totally different!) which features a lot of information about the AE86. Apart from the fact that this is a collectors item, it is mainly a guide for maintaining and tuning (including 20v swap!) your Hachi-roku and how to attain the same skills as the Dori King himself! 😉
I’ve seen them for sale cheaper than this, but then you have either a second hand version or you don’t have the free shipping option. And believe me: shipping from Japan is expensive!
Too bad I don’t have my Trueno anymore… Otherwise I would definetly have bought it, just like I bought my TRD Bible shortly before I sold the Trueno.
I came across these two Initial D nerds on Youtube:
I think that’s the summit of Initial D fandom: going all the way to mount Haruna (without an Hachi-Roku ofcourse) and don’t knowing what to do there. What else than to take a ride on the lake with a Swan?
Of course it would have gotten much more interesting if they would have done the downhill with the swan! 😛
