[Comprehensive evaluation]

Only First Stage will be given the highest rating.
The main reason is that it is very fresh at first look. (Thereafter, the freshness of the battle will decrease)

More than 90% of the charm of this work is a battle scene.
Battle the high-spec rivals with the old car "86" and win. It is solid but it is excited for that reason.

The car of the battle scene is made with CG and the movement is also very good.
Among the unknown capabilities of the main character Takumi, the first battle began, and the development which won with surprising technique and back technique was also interesting.

And the Euro beat BGM which excites the atmosphere was also very good.

[good point]
I drew a world of maniac cars amateurly also amateurs.
Even though the story is basically solid, every time I use various props well, I can not let it go.
Takahashi brothers, Nakazato, father, and others, old type cool men who are extinct by animation since the zero era are good.

[Bad point]
The car's CG is crappy (But once you get used to it once, it's surprisingly impressive)
Someday you are really coming.
Charadesa is ugly.
This author, as usual, how to draw a relationship between men and women is called enka.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Although it is about myself in 2014, it is surprisingly very interesting. Although it is a repetition of a strong enemy appearance, Takumi wins, every time, a new idea comes out and it is interesting. There is no thrill even if you see a super power warrior battle with a sword etc., but there is nothing but a thrill, but it is really scary to see gum tape death match etc in this work.

It is perfect for car lovers.
It may not be a bad work for animation lovers.

The bad thing is the character's face.
My mouth is bent, it means "It's not a cute or cool one".
The good part is where the design and movement of the car are drawn faithfully.

A female character, Ikaike gall that was popular at the time is drawn on that street.
I feel that the behavior of the car is like CG processing.
It looks exactly like the behavior of the Gran Turismo series of PlayStation.

I am dissatisfied with one thing in cars.
The exhaust sound of a mini car that appears several on the way is not a mini car.

I feel innovative adding live action to animation.
BGM is perfect only with euro beat.
However, the opening theme song is unsettling.
This is very negative.

Episode is made for about every 5 episodes, and I do not get tired of watching it.
It is also very good as it can be sepa- rated and seen.

Personally disappointing is that I started looking after all the seasons.
If you only know this work, it is completed, you can evaluate the highest, but I know that I wanted to lose in the last episode, as I know that there is continuity.
Based on that, I would like to add a [very good] evaluation.

Personality rich character.
Human relationship is solid but quite funny.
The outdated car and exhilarating feeling when Hachirok who is sweetly seen skims the latest sports car with the knowledge of the landscape and polished technique.
Selected songs with good sense of racing

[Bad point]
People who are dangerously driving will be affected.

I also wrote to the series, but I also write it so it seems to be here as well.
I also enjoyed myself who was not very interested in cars.
