I wonder what the article means when Funi says they're releasing Initial D uncut, since if I recall correctly the dub didn't exactly cut a lot. I'm glad they're keeping the original music, since that was part of what drew me to the series in the first place.
You can buy X on Amazon for cheap. They're not that hard to find >_>.
I really don't care though as I have Initial D(minus 4th Statge) on DVD already and the Original 8 X DVDs with the slipcovers that were a bitch to get and the Limited Edition Book Remix versions. Haven't seen the remix versions though ;_;.
Don't know why people are saying X TV is "nearly impossible" to find when all five volumes of the X TV Remix set have been available in RightStuf's Bargain Bin for a long time. Heck, there are well over 400 copies of each volume in stock. I can understand being totally unable to buy online, but it's still not that impossible to get...
They're $10 each. I'd recommend getting these instead of waiting for FUNimation. They'll be pretty much the same releases, except FUNimation may do four discs instead of five.
Good for them then. X was good. Didn't really like Initital D but I like Wangan Midnight so go figure I guess. -.- At least FUNimation is still in a position where they can license new things to go alongside their old stuff.
Removed a bunch of trolls and the idiotic quote chains.
On topic; this is good news, I'd like to see them remastered if possible, and new dubs could be good if they decide to go that route as opposed to just redistributing the existing ones. It certainly needs it since the old dub totally changed the soundtrack and everything. :( If they can relaunch the entire franchise it could be quite excellent.
