What Initial D is to car fans, Bari Bari is to motorbike fans. And that's the greatest compliment a racing series can get. Hell, the manga was supposedly so good that people started to join the Bōsōzoku (Japanese motorbike gangs) in droves! Strange?
Not really, since the same guy, Shuichi Shigeno, created Bari Bari Densetsu and Initial D - two holy grails of the petrol-heads. He also had assistance, in the form of his prominent student Jyoji Morikawa - the guy behind Hajime no Ippo.

VROOM, MOTHERFUCKER. VROOOOOOOOOOOM!!!

Motorcycles are so fucking cool, dude. Seeing these ones animated so well when they might be obnoxious CG blobs today makes me happy.

The story was pretty basic, and interesting to think about in connection to the mangaka's later work, Initial D. I think Initial D First Stage is damn near perfectly paced with great stakes because it all comes down to Takumi's relationships with the 86 and his rivalry with well-defined opponents. Bari Bari Densetsu doesn't exactly have that. It feels a lot slower when they're not racing and the original author's portrayal of women he was clearly not too interested in writing read more

*SPOILER FREE REVIEW*
Bari Bari Densetsu comes to us from the original creator of Initial D. The story follows illegal street racers on their path to professional races. Like Initial D, these teens ride on Japanese mountains swooping around corners at breakneck speeds. Additionally, if you loved the dynamic camera angles featured in Initial D, they're even better here because it's 100% hand-drawn and painted.

Although Bari Bari lacks the uniformity of CG art, it depicts each race from numerous camera angles. Whether it's looking straight ahead, checking the speedometer, engine shots, or close-ups as riders lean around corners with their knee an inch away from read more
