High school student Takumi Fujiwara works as a gas station attendant during the day and a delivery boy for his father's tofu shop during late nights. Little does he know that his precise driving skills and his father's modified Toyota Sprinter AE86 Trueno make him the best amateur road racer on Mt. Akina's highway. Because of this, racing groups from all over the Gunma prefecture issue challenges to Takumi to see if he really has what it takes to be a road legend.
No eurobeat music. Nothing new. Its basically a recap of the first season. Please watch the serries before this. The music in the serries meshes the anime together. Without the music, its just meh.
This is a great Remake of the first season alongside with the other 2 movies the only problem and its a HUUUUUUUUUUUGE ONE is that it lacks eurobeat and believe me, eurobeat goes like sugar and a cake with this anime its so important and it changes the whole experience, still its a very nice movie but its no the masterpiece we always talk about also the characters actors-seiyus are different and thats fucking anoying if you are used to the old ones which in my opinion are increibleStill very good remake 8.5/10
This is a remake of the first couple of episodes of the 1998 Initial D series. Though the animation is of a better quaiity the primative cg was oddly enough one of the endearing qualities of the original series. It lacks the trademark cg races and eurobeat music. Though this isn't an awful movie, it seems unnecessary as it is inferiror to the series it is a remake of. I recommend watching the first few episodes of the original series instead as it is superior in everyway excepting the anmiation quality. I also felt this movie was interior to the live-action Initial D movie, it tells the same story and I recommend watching it instead of this one.
