Takumi has an innate ability when it comes to driving cars. Though he is not interested in street races, circumstances force him to enter anyways and take on some of the best racers around. As Mt. Akina’s top downhill racer, he defends his home turf with all his pride and takes on numerous skilled challengers and with each battle he grows more fond of racing and develops more of his racing talent. Can Takumi continue winning against these adept drivers with his outmatched and underpowered AE86?

Wangan Midnight

Wangan Midnight

Asakura Akio is a young student and street racer who has a beloved car – a first generation S30 Nissan Fairlady 240 Z. Immediately upon discovering it in a scrap yard he's attracted to it, an attraction that later grows into an obsession. After restoring the car to its former glory with his friends he takes it down a stretch of highway known as Wangan to challenge its king, the "Black Bird." The more Asakura learns about the car and its dark history, the more he wants to master driving this dangerous "Akuma no Z" (The Devil's Z) and claim the title of Wangan's master for himself...

Both Wangan Midnight and Initial D are about a high school student who street races with a car (and he loves to race). If you liked one you'd like the other.


 If there's one word that'd describe both anime that'd be intense. Not only they share the same genre and are about a teenager who likes racing but they have the same feeling, and you can't help but feel excited everytime you watch them. Of course there are some differences, like Wangan Midnight being more focused in tuning and racing in highways while Initial D is centered in improving their own skills and racing in mountain passes, but if you liked Initial D you'd enjoy Wangan Midnight anyway.

Initial D Fourth Stage

Initial D Fourth Stage

Takahashi Ryousuke has always dreamed of becoming a legend amongst street racers, and with the creation of Project D, a team of highly skilled drivers, this dream is finally starting to become a reality. Ryousuke manages the team, the talented Takumi dominates the downhill races with his AE86, and the skilled Keisuke overcomes foes in the uphill races with his FD. Together, the talented group of racers set out for expeditions outside the Gunma region and will face formidable foes; and for Ryousuke, the battle to finally live his dream has only just begun...

Just as the battle battle stage, the fourth stage focuses on the races more than any other stage. Of course the battle stage is only races, still these two are the closest connected.
