Before life was lived a quarter mile at a time, before the sightings of the ghost of Mount Akina, there was a culture of man and machine in Japan that rivaled anything seen in the west. From the very beginning of anime flashy and fast cars have found their way into anime and pop culture. Join us as we look at the history of the Japanese car scene, its progression and its worldwide legacy. We will look into the aspects of tuning culture that are uniquely Japanese, as well as things that have spread globally. We will also be exploring some of the many ties that car culture has had to anime (from the action hero in the awesome car to actual racing anime) and how the love of the automobile shines in popular art and media.
