After being introduced in Initial D's first season, the 'angels of Usui pass' were somewhat abandoned in the second season and the Third Stage movie. Extra Stage explains where Mako Satou and her co-driver Sayuki have been all along. Apparently during the events of Initial D: Second Stage, the Impact Blue team, had to battle a scouting party of the Emperors Team, despite all warnings by fellow racers Shingo and Takeshi of the nearby Night Kids team. Later, as winter sets in, and the events of Initial D: Third Stage are taking place in Akina, the Impact Blue girls take a vacation, and Mako gives love another try, but is constantly drawn towards her life as a drift-racer as well as haunted by the memories of her recent love, Iketani.

Extra stage 2 has been aired on Sky perfect TV (pay preview) In Japan. with the DVD set to come out on the 5th of Dec.
Extra stage 2 follows the same story that was set in extra stage,
but is now set in the days of "Project D" (the fourth season)
the choice of music was great really caught the moments however the end theme was lacking something.
the opening intro animation was not the best, but the in show animation made up for it.
the only part I found a real down side too is that, they over use the 4 way split screen animation.
is great but to watch any of the Initial D: Extra stages (1 or 2) I recommend you have watched the show and have a strong interest in initial D, or these OVA's will not appeal to you as you wont know whats going on.
