It was taken down because it isn't a legitimate translation. It is a parody.

I can't speak japanese so I only picked up of MAYBE 25% of what they were saying, I heard GTR and was like..."hmmmmmm.......because of how they'd be going on already, these guys underestimate Project D. But driving a GTR down a road like that is stupid, it's a fucking heavy tank (IMO) and having AWD isn't the best thing to have (although some people say it is)" Then when you told me it was a GTS, it made ALOT more sence to me, the GTS weighs like 400 lbs less than the GTR, is a FR, and has better weight balance.

There's alot of unique termonolgy in Initial D espically with car parts and so forth. Many people who don't know anything about cars might not beable to translate properly even if Japanese is their primary language...

But I agree I'm confused why no one else has subbed this ep.

That Skyline isn't a GTR,it's a GTS convertable made to look like a GTR.

It doesn't have the 3 round lights because it's a 93 FD

The windshield should have cracked.

Takumi's gauge has green numbers with a red needle,this is because he does have a different gauge.
that skyline my friends is a ER34, i'm not 100% but i think the badging is a 25gt-t

the Skyline GT-R is a BNR34

the difference is that the ER34 is an FR while the BNR34 is a 4WD

I deleted that thing 5 minutes into it. I don't believe anyone can do that to such a great series. It should become fansub law that the filenames of parody subs should be tagged as such. I had disgusting feelings last night. But enough about my feelings. I plan to fansub it accurately.

I made an account just to post on this one thread :D

Those fansubs were completely funny. Were they a joke? Obviously. Were they a "horrible" translation? No, because they still translated what was going on, they just added their own flair to it, and I think it worked pretty well. Obviously, if you're going to die if you don't have exact japanese to english changes, then they aren't for you, but as something fun to watch that still conveys the story, they get full points in my book.

I suppose I'm in the minority though.

That's not the only diffrence, there's a HUGE diffrence. And it would be GTS-T not a 25GT-t

B <---2600cc (Ie RB26DETT) N<----ATTESSA-ETS R34 <---model code
E <---2500cc (ie RB25DET or RB25DE) C <---- HICAS equipped and R34 <-- model code

Now I can't understand japanese, so I can't say which skyline
it is, cept for the fact it's a R34.

But there were tons of other diffrences between the GTR and other various models.

you could tell by their group name.... fob
Quote:
FOB - is a degrading term for people not up to date on the culture which is an abbreviation for (Fresh Of the Boat.)
meaning you still carry your sense of fashion from your country which clashes with the current countries cultures.

Origin: Hawaii 60's

Local Hawaiians used it to refer to white people who came from mainland US to Hawaii. Its was used a lot by locals and surfers. it was to refer to white people who wasn't up to date on the culture.

It is now used a lot by Asians to refer to immigrant Asians of the same sense.

"Man! whats up with your shoes? thats fob!"

"Dood! check out the howlie with the yellow hat. what a fob."

Well they do have a point about some of the characters... moding a skyline gts to look like a gt-r would be a good example of rice. But stickers adding 10hp?!! Everyone knows they only add 5

Welcome to the forum Nyght but unfortunately for you the first post you've made hits a rather sore spot.

Recently we've seen a number of new members join and (it appears) they don't bother to check to see if a similar thread already exists.

The question you have asked has been asked countless times (OK, so "countless" is an exaggeration but it's been asked a number of times now). All you need do is search for "Initial" and you will find threads in existence which asks the same question "Is anyone going to fansub Initial D" (just make sure that when you search use the "Search Titles Only" option). And the only reason why there are 'only' 14 threads currently with "Initial" in the title is because I'm constantly merging the things together!!!

So I'm yet again closing a thread. I'll more than likely merge this one with one of the others sooner or later.

And one other thing, the Fansub forum is for discussing anime series currently available as fansubs, not for asking when or if it will be fansubbed or not!
