It's girls, gangs, and cars in this adaptation of the 1985 manga in Young Magazine, by Lullaby for Wednesday's Cinderella-creator Michiharu Kusunoki. Local punks steal cars, switch the plates, and sell them, but not without racing them for a while against rival gangs. The anime continues the story where the 1987 live-action movie starring Kazuya Kimura left off.

But if by any chance, you enjoy watching stupid guys, doing rather dumb stuff
and on top of that you like JDM culture, i can almost guarantee you that you'll enjoy this show.
I mean, this show won't change your life, don't have any really strong points either.
It's just really enjoyable comedy, which ...

Preliminary (1/4 eps)
Walked into this expecting cool bosozoku cars and good ol lad shit. Barely made it through the first episode but kept watching because i thought it would change or get better. Then watched about half of the second episode to find theres literally a character with sex offense charges.
