Arrow Best Motoring DVD's @ Best Buy

Picked one up whilst Xmas shopping for my loved ones today and they're cheap!!! $17.95

I still like to support vendors like Godspeed who stock stuff like this at a bit higher price since they can't get the "I'll take 100000000000000000000000 copies" buying power of the Best Buy's of the world but it's neat to see a good import DVD available to the public and not these crappy "eXtreme" street racing BS DVDs that are out there.

The one near me in MI had the Lancer Vs. Impreza one but since I've already got that one I got the 350Z issue.

Yeah I was suprised to see they had them. I just got the job at best buy about a month ago, and I work in the media department. I was just walking around, putting dvd's back, and then I saw it, and was like awesome! I asked for Initial D(anime drifting video) for christmas, which best buy has too.

I thought that only applied to the US version if you watched it in English. I remember hearing that the first disc was normal so long as you watched it in Japanese w/ subtitles.

I have no idea about the subsequent releases, though.

ryouga- yah, that's what i heard too about the Int.D...that
the first release is in Japanese with Eng subtitles... I'll have
to look again. Id rather watch the DVD in Japanese.

Even the BestMotoring video's feel real awkward with this
smooth talking Asian guy while these Japanese drivers are
pecking at the cars in Japanese.

Doridori: "dang, this car sucks!"
Asian voice over: "Doridori claims the car is not as it seems.."

just doesn't cut it.

You figure that BB can order 10k @ one shot and small retailers only get a few.

I say support the little guys but it's nice to see good car DVDs in the mainstream. No more thinking that compact cars are only about TFATF.

I got initial D for christmas, and im so mad!!! I mean its a cool dvd, but I didnt get the second one!! So i watched it, and then right before the big race downhill, part 3 was over! So now I have to wait until tomorrow to get the second dvd. But the options are in the old japanese version w/ subtitles, or english that has subtitles for only the signs.

IMO, the only way to watch Initial D is w/the engrish subtitles. None of this dubbed into engrish crap.

The JPN DVDs owN the Tokyo Pop version.

i got the complete initial D set (except for Battle Stage) for $110 from some hong kong anime site. The first season has this echo-ey sound, but otherwise the audio is original with decent english subtitles. since it's from hong kong, the only other options are cantonese audio and chinese subtitles.
