MF Ghost
Volume 1


By the 2020s, cars with internal combustion engines have largely been phased out, replaced by self-driving electric and fuel cell vehicles instead. Though these fossil fuel-running cars are at risk of disappearing completely, a dedicated group in Japan known as the MFG strives to maintain interest in them through road races streamed online. With 10 billion yen at stake and more than three hundred drivers competing, only the "Godly Fifteen"—the top 15 racers in the circuit—have a chance at advancing and taking the coveted prize.

Fresh off a plane from England, 19-year-old Kanata Rivington is eager to take on the fourth installment of the MFG competition. Trained at an elite driving school in his home country, the half-Japanese driver vies for the competition's top spot in his hand-me-down Toyota 86 GT. Despite the disadvantages that come with a dated car, the newcomer is determined to become one of this year's Godly Fifteen.

Kanata adopts his father's last name, taking on the moniker "Kanata Katagiri." Conquering the Japanese racing circuit is only a stepping stone towards his real goal: discovering the whereabouts of his missing father.

Preliminary (52/? eps)
Mf ghost was supposed to be the successor to Initial D, a manga and anime series that's really popular in Japan and around the world due to it's great races and ost (Obviously the ost part is just for the anime adaptation), however, it fails miserably in trying to take it's appeal further.
First, the characters are even weaker than the ones in Initial d. Great characters was never the strong point of the series but Mf ghost throws any bit of what Initial d had of good in the trash, most of the characters are flat and lack depth for the series to focus exclusively ...

Preliminary (33/? eps)
Pretty boring overall
Very slow progression through each chapter
The interaction between each of the characters is repetitive. In one scene, two characters are doing something and in the next scene, another set of characters are doing the exact same thing. Things that should only take up couple pages end up taking multiple chapters
Each chapter's events are easy to guess just by reading couple of the beginning pages

The cars and the environment look great.
The characters look pretty bad, they do not look natural. It's the kind of style that may have passed in the 80s and the 90s, but would not pass today.
The disconnect between ...
