Family Album Treasures: Fuji Speedway comic version

July 20, 2010 in Family Album Treasures

When I found the picture of Fuji International Speedway I posted last week I got an Initial D feeling from the whole scene. So I could not resist modifying it with some comic sound effects from Initial D:
Comic version: Fuji Speedway International visit

Even better to keep this version in your family album, right?

Itasha airbagged Lancer Evo V

June 22, 2010 in itasha

I know: airbagged cars and Itasha don’t mix, but these airbags are a different kind of airbags: they replace the original item of this Lancer Evo V:

Yes, that’s of course the perfect airbags for an anime loving itasha owner! 😉

Just for the record, this is how the whole Evo V looks like:

Very nicely done, but not exactly my cup of tea! 😉

Manga: Arthur Garage

October 11, 2008 in manga

Currently I’m at the AEU86 Meeting but because you may get bored I thought I’d share this manga I came accross this week: Arthur’s Garage (Sakuhin Arthur).

The manga is about a garage owner called Arthur who sell used car and does a lot of shakotan cars. The manga started out underground but soon got published in Kodansha’s Young Magazine. Initial D was originally published in Young Magazine as well, so that’s a good start.

I love the sight of this:
Arthur and the Hakosuka Skyline KPGC10

Not many people know it, but my first name is officially Arthur. 😉

Arthur and his buddy the mechanic

Can’t wait to lay my hands upon one of the issues. 🙂
Anyone knows where to buy them or get scantranslations??
