A Class Of Its Own

Acura races into anime with ‘Chiaki’s Journey’ web series

For the twelfth 12 months in a row, Acura is a presenting sponsor and the formal auto of the Sundance Movie Competition in Park City, Utah. Acura established a four-element anime collection referred to as Chiaki’s Journey combining the medium Sundance celebrates, Japanese anime, the automaker’s fuller Sort-S lineup, and the new Acura Integra hatch. Not like most of the films at the pageant, however, Chiaki’s Journey runs a whole of four minutes and 12 seconds, each individual episode long lasting just around a minute.

The story centers on Chiaki, a younger Japanese lady from a family of racers who is aware how to hustle a car or truck all-around a track, but who has a mood that runs a lot quicker than her vintage Integra can rev. The villain is Erich Kang, the same prosperous and insufferably arrogant hotshot from every video match and motor vehicle motion picture, piloting a non-descript blue sizzling rod. He’s plainly the male every person would like to beat, and he is aware he is that male. When Chiaki gets at the rear of the wheel to educate Kang a lesson in lap instances, her uncle Noboru actions in to instruct her the classes she’ll want to have to have to earn. 

Being so condensed, each individual installment plays like a trailer for a lengthier episode. Acura managed to fit in all the cars and trucks, though: Location the 2022 MDX Style S, NSX Kind S, TLX Form S, and 2023 Integra. The car brand name got the obligatory Japanese rock anime intro as nicely, many thanks to the all-feminine metallic band NEMOPHILA doing the music “Raitei.” You can see the very first episode over and the relaxation at Acura’s devoted Type S site.
