Musical Group m.o.v.e Performs New Initial D Anime's Themes

posted on by Egan Loo
New car-racing TV anime to premiere in November on Animax's pay-per-view

This year's combined 36th/37th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine is announcing on Monday that the musical group m.o.v.e will once again contribute the opening and ending theme songs for this year's new Initial D anime. The group is best known for its work on Initial D, but it also performed on the soundtracks for Ikki Tousen, Final Fantasy: Unlimited, and Asobotto Senki Goku.

The magazine is also announcing that the new anime will premiere in November on Animax's pay-per-view service. More details will be available on the Perfect Choice Premiere service's website.

Shuuichi Shigeno's original manga and the various anime projects follow a high school boy named Takumi Fujiwara in his racing pursuits on the public highways. The manga debuted in 1995, and Kodansha published the 45th book volume last month. The manga already inspired several television anime series, a live-action film, several original video anime projects, and a successful game line.

Tokyopop published the manga and released part of the anime before ceasing its North American publishing operations. Funimation also licensed and released some of the earlier anime.
