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.

Okay, to begin with
This is not excatly what you probably expect.
Instead of fast cars and cool races, about half of screen-time is filled with REALLY stupid, mostly slapstick humour, sexism, and basically doing stupid things.
Okay, if that discouraged you, you can already close the tab with this review, and give up on watching Shakotan Boogie
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 ...
