This year's 35th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine is announcing on Monday that a new anime series adaptation of Shuuichi Shigeno's Initial D car-racing manga has been green-lit. The format of the new anime series be it a television anime, original video anime, or another format and other details have not been revealed. More details will be provided in the combined 36th/37th issue of the magazine on August 6.

The story follows Takumi Fujiwara, a high school boy with a natural talent for driving, in his racing pursuits on the public highways. The manga debuted in 1995, and Kodansha published the 45th book volume last month. The manga already inspired several television anime series, a live-action film, several original video anime projects, and a successful game line.

Tokyopop published the manga and released part of the anime before ceasing its North American publishing operations. Funimation also licensed and released some of the earlier anime.

hope they do a complete redo from the start again, something like HxH got now, i think it would be great really because i just couldnt get myself to watch the old anime of initial d so i just read the manga, though the manga was.... pretty much all the same after 2-300 chapters, especially around 450 it started getting rather tiring and only the idea of "its only 150 chapters left to go now, i have already read so many so should finish" that kept it going
