>There will never be a good racing anime.
inb4. F1 a shit.
I'm not talkin about some far future magic mecha shit, but a proper racing class, with young drivers chasing fame.
Anime about races?,i thought Japanse were bad at driving.
Capeta is your best bet then.
I enjoyed Cyber Formula GPX for the far/alternate future /m/-tolerable
Initial D's about dumb kids hopping up road cars and risking the lives of themselves and others for the "Honor" of racing or some shit; OP's looking more into something like an Anime Pic Related or Grand Prix
Yeah, but about professional racing, instead of streat racing.
No one said it must be about Japanese driver.
It's shit, because the safety regulations turned it into shit.
Old school F1 was a completly different thing.
Looks nice, but it's already old like all fucks.
did someone say Motorcycle and Anime in one sentence?
i think someone said Motorcycle and Anime in one sentence
Nah, fuck F1, we need an anime about rally racing. That would be intense as hell. Alternatively, goofy kart-style antics like during that one episode of Carnival Phantasm.
You're thinking of stock car racing. And that hasn't been good in years.
maybe we will get Stigs japanese cousin one day
>You will never buy a brand new (expensive as shit) bike, and put anime stickers all over it.
It physically hurts.
Rallying would be good, but I'd watch the fuck out of a Motorcyle Anime based around competing on The Isle of Man's Tourist Trophy.
It's not like i'm not watching them.
I just like to see something "fresh" from time to time, that uses current animation technology.
Well, anime is sure strange.
Horse racing is pretty big but there is like no attempt to make an anime about it.
No anime to pander to the train otaku fanbase (Rail Wars anime doesn't count).
They just realized that there is a large part in the anime scene who loves military stuff.
And the most stupid thing was that Nissan, Subaru and co. invested quite a lot in anime. But instead of making an anime about racing or cars at least they did mecha, SoL or magical girls series.
Super GT anime with JP as the protagonist when?
I shall burn in hell for saying that.
It's about butts... seriously Japan... stop smoking this shit.
Well, Initial D was a giant TOYOTA commercial, as well.
>Dat GT86 in the last episode...
>Old school F1 was a completly different thing.
Agreed, and it would be great material too, but i can't see it (a historically correct F1 anime) happening anytime soon.
Well there is this motorbike racing anime/OVA series called: bari bari densetsu
I havent watched it yet, author is same as in Initial D.
Old School F1 was even more boring. Barely overtaking and teams and drivers dominated entire weekends all the time.
Sure, drivers were dying left and right but that shouldn't be a part of an enternainment concept.
I don't give a shit if Cyber Formula isn't a real setting, the cars are legitimately what we might have ended up with from the perspective of the 90s. Only thing out of place is H-pattern manual gearboxes.
Nissan had concept cars in Stand Alone Complex way back.
Lagrange was one of those "hey let's have our designers do something that isn't a car and see what happens" deals.
How about a series where instead of cute girls driving cars, cute girls ARE the cars?
It's a very likely scenario to happen, but it would be a total shit, for racing fans.
And even then, the H-Pattern gearboxes were switched with paddle-shifters by the time the OVAs started.
Anime about history of the Nissan GT-R, might be nice.
The "Godzilla" is Japan's pride after all.
Nissan would use it as a nice commercial, for their cars.
Those were suppose to be Nissans? I kinda assumed they were just generic future box cars that were easy to CGI render. Although that does sound exactly like a Nissan now that I think about it.
I'm fine with computer driven racecars as long as the cars have unique personas and occasionally say funny things in interviews. It's not like real racing drivers are fountains of personality.
>There will never be a good racing anime.
Looks like you just missed the good ones.
>Implying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCYO2rU_sGk is boring
Back in the day they were though...
Hand drawn scenes are nice and all, but are eating the budget, and work hours like crazy.
And i can't see anything wrong with the quality of current CGI animation. (See GuP or Initial D 5th/Final Stage)
Also the character design, is a very questionable question, and personally, i prefer the current, simplier designs more, yet i still have respect for the old series, since drawing them, must've been a serious pain in the ass.
As i said, i'm not into far future/fictional stuff.
I just want a real cars, racing on real tracks.
>No anime to pander to the train otaku fanbase
Tetsuko no Tabi
I know... Up until the 1980's, an F1 driver could generally say what they wanted to say to the press or another competitor, but then money got in the way of all that. That's why I generally follow Sportscar racing and Indycar now and then.
;_; It goes to show just how big Senna was in Japan through his work and adds for Honda.
There's also Densha de D, for the Manga fags.
Closest thing to >>112470298 & >>112469560 IMHO.
>Fake Diva, promoting the Fake car.
I really wanted to like Rideback, but that show was so schizo... First you have racing, then that stupid war shit; and you have no time for any actual character development, which was what the show was supposed to be about! They should have just made it about racing, and MC finding herself again on the track.
>one of the sequel series is about early 2000s IRL and the Infiniti Pro Series
>dime a dozen shitbox
What was Toyota thinking with this ad campaign. Miku should just stick with the BMW's.
That was some terrifying shit-box racing though; One mistake and you'd end up with broken legs/feet/neck/[INSERT BODYPART HERE].
It's like poetry, although technically it is a real car since they made a mockup.
Well, the Corolla is a good car, for normalfags with families, life, and shit.
Not everyone is a motha fuckin street king.
Hey guys! Don't mind me. I just still being the best racing anime.
But they made it only to tease people, like the Futaba guys did with Teto.
They made her only as a april fools joke, to teas people.
She will never be a real Vocaloid, and this car will never be a real racing maschine.
I wouldn't be surprised if Red Bull built a real one at some point, they do awesomely retarded shit all the time. I'd image the problem is actually finding someone who's skilled and stupid/crazy enough to drive it.
Well, theoretically the X2010/11/14 are cars that could kill it's driver due to the sheer forces that exert upon them (Acceleration, Braking, Cornering all exceeding fighter jet-levels).
>finding someone who's skilled and stupid/crazy enough to drive it.
This wouldn't be a problem.
There's a lot of crazy people out there, and Red Bull sure knows how to find them.
Okay, here is the pitch.
R:Racing - THE ANIME SERIES.
well I enjoyed that clusterfuck of a game, cute grills were cute and the pressure mechanic was a nice touch that made racing feel a bit like animu.
Yea they do and EVA looks surprising good on a McLaren
Humans are actually pretty good at dealing with horizontal g forces, the only real danger would be during rapid braking. They could always pilot it remotely if they just wanted to flex their technological nuts.
>Not available on PC.
It's sad that Namco can't into PCs.
i'd gladly play their games, but i'm not a console fag.
>mfw there will never be a good racing anime about Mika beating the evil German shoe polisher.
I feel for you guys
I'm not really one either, but I had an old PS2 and picked it up on special one day. Was worth the 15 dollars I spent on it, it was no GT4 for PS2 driving physics or Le Mans for PS2 depth, but it was a fun little game.
Emulate it if you can.
You know, somethin like that is illegal in most states and countries.
So riding this thing, outside of the racing track, is a bad idea.
Gyrozetter had both real cars (sort of) and robots! Nobody liked it though.
Mika was a fucking superhero.
Next year, McLaren-Honda returns. Glorious anime about my glorious red and white cars when?
His replacement ironically has more Japanese racing experience
Why can' t we have an anime about a cute Alonso doing cute things, like being made of wax.
i prefer Raikkonen doing Raikkonen things
I'm pretty sure that's for show. They take it off when actually racing or using it.
Just make it a Group B anime then, and focus on how little sanity one must have to drive those cars that fast. Shit's gonna be intense as fuck.
This shit was way too sick.
Faster? Yes. Safer? Hell no. Especially without exquisite accel work.
You're forgetting about the most terrifying thing — those fucking retarded spectators that stand on the fucking road and will not move until you score a strike with them. Watching records of Argentina made me think who's more insane, the drivers or them.
I'm not too keen on directors, but the studio is definitely Sunrise, Studio 3 to be exact. Especially if by some miracle they get enough money to do 0083 tier animation.
Drifting in a "heavy" RWD, can't be compared to a Group B Quattro, that was lighter, had 3 times more power, and was AWD.
>13:13 for snow.
What? This one could do 1-100 in less then 4 seconds on gravel of all things, for example. That's dangerously fast.
Celica a olev
Even on dirt average speed of those monsters sometimes was reaching 200 km/h.
>Not the Delta S4
Do you even twincharge, faggot?
It's the same with Group C.
They're old, of course they're not fast. But Group B was stupid and faster and more powerful than reasonable for 80s tire and suspension technology.
Step it up, son. And 1000 lakes is really cheating indeed.
>they almost fucking die at 2:08
This would be the most GAR anime since the dawn of time.
> of course they're not fast.
But they are fast. Kankkunen said in his interviews after participating in 1000 lakes that he felt his old 205T16 was faster then '08 Focus he was driving, albeit much harder to control.
Oh man, been watching this and those real cars are nice to see being animated like this, in a traditional way and very decently on action scenes. That Toyota Starlet in yellow from the first episode... I just love those 60s & 70s style in Japanese car design, the lovely kind of boxy!
>comparing this year's turbo cars to the 80s ones
That's the key word.
Now it's too safe, and too expensive, to be good.
Not only the cars.
Remember when you couldn't tell who was going to win? I wasn't around for the 80s, but hell I enjoyed those damn Ferrari vs BMW vs those silver and black McLaren and those yellow hondas.
McLaren won 15 out of 16 races in 1988. 10 of the first 12 in 1989.
Senna and Mansell won nearly everything in 1991. Mansell won the first 5 races and walked the season in general in 1992. Prost equally casually won the championship in 1993. Hill and Shumacher won all but 2 races in 1994 and one of those was Mansell coming back from America at the end of the season. 1995 wasn't much better. Williams won every dry race but Italy in 1996.
Hakkinen either won or broke most of 1998 and 1999, McLaren was absurdly far ahead at the start of 1998. Shumacher won 5 straight fucking championships from 2000 to 2004 including Ferrari winning 15/17 races in 2002.
>Shumacher won 5 straight fucking championships from 2000 to 2004
Those where great too, we all knew Schumacher was the man, so it was fun to watch it win. Maybe it's because pilots right now seems to be mostly assholes? I don't know.
They've always been assholes.
Shumacher was the greatest asshole of his time but he was just carrying on the legacy of Senna being a huge fucking asshole, who was no less of an asshole than Prost who was no less of an asshole than Lauda.
Then there's Piquet, king of assholes.
They released a note saying he woke up and went home to be treated there. Nobody ever saw him, there's no pictures, no statements, nothing.
It was bullshit. They moved him home, but you can bet he's still comatose. That man will never wake up.
could you help me guys?
when i was a kid there were anime about a guy racing in f1 or something. all what i remember he got a new car with 6 wheels (4 in rear) and his gf or something had accident or something. anyone know something?
This old fag should just die already.
>Hamuritonu, we'll need you to let Nico pass
>If Nico-chan wants to pass me, she needs to catch up
>WHY WON'T HAMILTON-KUN LET ME PASS
>HAMILTON-KUN NO BAKA
I'd watch it. The Hungary Grand Prix was the best race in a while.
Well it was that or posting unfinished shit without the wireframe and having people tell me it looks unfinished.
It's just, I remember that on the podium they all looked happy and smiled, and messed with each other with the champagne, at least most of the time. Now everyone seems to hate each other, including their teammates. At least that's what I feel.
Haven't gotten around to making custom liveries yet. Probably because I'm utter shit at making them for Trackmania.
Always liked making them in Forza, but that's because the projection system there is a little more flexible than directly painting onto the texture, no UVs to bother with.
I'd gladly play that, but my old as fuck PC would probably blow up.
AC is kind of a huge nigger about it anyways just because of how fucked the mapping tends to be.
>No anime like Tokyo Xtreme Racer ever
The series went to shit after Zero, but Zero was a fucking amazing game that I really need to beat one day. Fucking Wangan gangs with their overpowered as shit cars.
I could definitely ruin shitty cars but I wanna ruin expensive cars. Also one badly placed decal is smalltime compared to what I'd do. I'm talking shitty BMW art car levels of bad.
>shitty BMW art car
Fucking fight me, nigger.
I'll fockin rek yo m8.
Rei a fockin shit.
Oh. In that case I understand how you feel. You could always go the Deadmau5 route.
[ WARNING!!! ]
This thread makes me miss all my Forza 4 itashas. I had so many, my favorite was this 1969 Camaro SS with a Black Rock Shooter livery.
I even joined a Japanese Touhou club to get all of their itashas, I was literally the only non-Japanese member.
I miss Forza 4, too. Had to borrow an Xbox for a couple months just to play it.
>drawing them, must've been a serious pain in the ass
I've heard that since the Japanese economy was doing so well in the late 80s, they had money to just throw around on even obscure projects like nothing and still turn a reasonably sized profit.
Part of the decline of racing anime stems from Japan cracking down on car culture. They basically crushed street racing and the days of guys tuning up their Skylines or Supras is gone.
The Japanese government actually banned a documentary on the Midnight Club until it was edited to take an anti-street-racing stance.
That's why they should make a "proper" racing anime, to show them how real racing should be done, and motivate young drivers to use a track, and achieve somethin, instead of racing on the streets and get arrested.
Stick this on the hood and we'll talk.
Goddamn, anon. Get your shit together.
I'd rather end its suffering by burning it to ashes.
"Fast" is relative. Gr. A cars were already beating their stage times by 1990. It all has to do with how effectively the power can be put down and the 4WD systems of the Gr. B cars were incredibly primitive in comparison to the Gr. A cars that followed. That coupled with the tire and suspension tech of the day meant that the cars just couldn't handle the 500+HP they were making.
It's a shame the RS200 only competed for half a season.
Caught cheating in '95, suspended from '96 season.
I don't follow rally (or any other motorsport for that matter). How did they cheat? If it's some regulation about making the car too powerful, shouldn't they not have that rule and allow machines to run as best as they can?
I think Hill Climb animu would work more than lets say rally or track racing. Since the tracks are shorter and are single events, cars more varied, and drivers do not use a navigator/co-driver.
>l, shouldn't they not have that rule and allow machines to run as best as they can?
The last time they did that we got Can-Am and six-wheeled cars with vacuums on the bottom of them to stick to the ground like glue. Unfortunately that died.
It depends from each competition, but part of the point of the rally is the brands to showing off the integrity and reliability of their street cars they sell, just letting them modify the shit out of them would destroy the idea behind it.
Also the idea is to have make it competitive, and no just the most powerful car wins, so they are forced to have similar setups, mostly limited to the engine.
Expensive to participate in, dangerous for both the spectators and drivers, absolutely no reliability, tires are hard to come by because suppliers had to supply them in small quantities. Also, it's threatening to take views from other, more popular races.
That's essentially what Group B was.
The only real restriction was that manufacturers had to build at least 200 homologation models to compete.
Because sanctioning bodies hate fun.
The costs got too expensive. There were so few rules in Can-Am that basically anything was allowed as long as it had wheels and an engine.
Pic related is an example of a Can-Am car. This thing was fast as shit because a snowmobile engine powered fans in it to keep it stuck to the ground so it handled insanely good despite literally being a huge-ass box. Also it happened to constantly throw stones from the track at the people driving behind it.
Rumor said that the original VN has good portrait on rails
However the anime adaptation ignore that, and it spout a conflict between the VN author and the production team
Also pic related, there is a horse racing one, infact very famous at the 90s, you just arent knowledgable enough to know it
That's fucking hilarious but I can't imagine that working out too well with all that extra stuff on the vehicle. Got any videos?
I see. Just curious, what are Groups A and C?
Rally cars are still heavily modified street cars though.
Given how crazy-expensive it is to animate cars well without resorting to CG, I feel a Visual Novel would work well for a racing story. Just have a good writer to really get your heart pounding during the race.
>H-scenes in the pit lane when no one's around
Except money is the biggest problem. Current F1 already cost shittons of money. No-holds-barred racing will inflate the costs even further. Then there are parties that have interests in F1 being the top dog, so they won't take kindly to anything that tries to unseat it.
Are you seriously saying you'd rather read a slideshow about a race than have them use CGI?
>what are Groups A and C?
>Rally cars are still heavily modified street cars though.
But they're not. From Gr. B onward, the only thing rally cars and their factory counterparts had in common was the unibody.
>Rally cars are still heavily modified street cars though.
But it's mostly suspension and safety measures. Basically is the other way around, depending of the class it's the components that must remain stock. Also of course the cars are divided by engine power most of the time.
The idea is that certain car wins it actually means something for the original car builder to brag, different for example NASCAR that the only thing they have from the cars are the cover.
I would rather watch 90s era CGI cars drive around than read "he accelerated into the turn his feet dancing over the pedals like some kind of automotive ballerina" forty times for each race.
You don't write about the whole race, /a/non, you only write about the interesting parts.
I mean, I could deal with CG. It'd be annoying, but that's about the only way to animate cars like this without blowing wads of money.
If you only write the interesting parts you don't have the suspense of the race. It's like if you wrote about a samurai duel and skipped to the part where someone had already been stabbed.
Maybe that was a bit vague. Judging from this and another video I saw a while back, I'd say that's a lot of modifications. Hell, they had to take the whole thing apart to work on it. But yeah, even if it's not nearly the same thing, I wouldn't mind a stock WRX.
So how would like your motorsport anime to be?
For me, I would like it to be yuri, Sol, comedy, and smut. Because fuck you that what i like.
Group A cars had a decent bit to do with street cars, early World Rally Cars considerably less so (it was like, okay, you don't have a Group A eligible car so you can build a car out of whatever shit you have instead which inevitably gave an advantage), and the current S2000 WRC has fuck all to do with anything.
Racing just doesn't work as VN. I honestly don't see the problem with CGI cars, Initial D's cars looked pretty shit but the races were still fun to watch. The actual animation and motion is more important than the models they use.
