Storyline

Picking up right after the events of 'First Stage', 'Second Stage' continues to follow the underground Road Racing career of high-school student/delivery boy Takumi Fujiwara and friends as they face new challenges in the Gunma area. After evolving into a full-fledged downhill racer, Takumi and his AE86 Trueno are faced with new challengers in the form of the Emperors, a Lancer-Evo team that plans to conquer the mountain passes of the Gunma area as well as a mysterious AE86 Levin driver who seeks to de-throne Takumi as the fastest Eight-Six driver on the mountain pass. With tougher challengers and more dangerous mountains, it may take more than Takumi and his Eight-Six Trueno to defend the honor of the Gunma drivers, fortunately Takumi has the Akina Speedstars team, his legendary father Bunta Fujiwara (who has a few tricks up his sleeve) and the superstar racer Ryosuke Takahashi on his side. He'll need all the help he can get. Written by Nathan J Rossberg

Greatest car racing ever seen
14 February 2003 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

After watching so many other car racing scene, either animated or even the 'real' movie, I would say that this is by far the best that I would recommend to anyone who are looking for adrenaline rush of a car racing. This is not something like you see in "Fast and the furious", where those punks only know how to upgrade their machines and run faster than the others in a rather straight street, no technique required there, dude.

Here in this series, though animated (but in CGI format), but it really shows to the car racing fans what a car racing scene should be. Not just over hype car crashing, car chasing where the car can fly, turn but landed still 4 wheels on ground stuff; amaze the audience with those nice looking or high tech car (like those in James Bond series). In Initial D, it is not necessarily the mean machines will win, but the one who can master the driving skills and techniques could even outrun the modern and better car. In this series, you could learn a bit of those cars characters, and also briefly how they could drift and swept those corners in a believable but stylish way. It doesn't have nonsense talking scene in the series. Most of the time, yeah, car racing. Since I love the series so much, I had bought the DVD collection and watch them again and again. Hey, it didn't bore me at all. Just really wonder if there's anyone in the movie industry could produce such an immense and almost impossible car racing/drifting scene using real machine and operated by stunt mans. If there's one, I would be the first to watch it. If you are interested in car chasing and racing, it is a must for you to go and watch it. Those japanese really know how to make an animated series so real and fascinating. I would give them 9 stars.
