      Has anyone watched the anime Initial D?
      It's about a prodigy street racer taking on various other street racers across the mountains of Japan. I can say it's the only anime that has truly changed my life, it's what got me interested into Japanese Cars and Anime as a whole. I cried after the last episode because I knew it was over, and I didn't want it to end. Highly recommended if you're into cars.

    2. Giri/Haji (duty/shame) Japanese/English BBC crime drama mini-series on netflix

      We had nothing to watch and for once Netflix didn’t show utter shit as a recommendation and I found this. After checking the reviews, they seemed… positive. 100% on RT and Decider said "Stream It". As my wife and I both love British crime dramas, we decided to give it a chance.

      And boy, was it worth it.

      The show is in the genre of crime/detective/noir-ish/LBQT/drama ;) One warning, while it plays (estimated) 30% in Tokyo and 70% in London, the language is about 80% (estimated, again, might just be because those parts were harder) Japanese.

      We follow a Japanese detective who (eventually) travels to London. Some characters are down to earth, some are cartoonish. None of them seem unfitting. I don’t want to say too much to avoid spoilers, but if you like the crime shows and can handle having to read subtitles most of the time (or speak Japanese I guess ;)), you should really give this a chance.

      It’s on Netflix at least in the US and Germany ;)
