With high school graduation right around the corner, Takumi Fujiwara has a lot on his mind and a lot to prepare for. Everything becomes even more complicated when Takumi is offered a spot on Ryosuke Takahashi's elite Kengai Racing Team, which seeks to assemble the greatest racers in the Gunma area for a tour of Japan's mountain passes. Before he can accept however, Takumi feels the need to settle the score with the Lancer Evo driving Emperor team, defend his downhill-racer crown against the son of his father's greatest rival, and finally settle things with his unfaithful girlfriend Natsuki.Written by

The course in this movie, Irohazaka, is located near Nikkoh in Tochigi prefecture. It has two different roads; one going uphill and one going downhill. Irohazaka got its name because in the ancient Japanese days, it was a mountain trade route. "I, Ro, Ha" are the first three letters of the old Japanese alphabet, given as a joke to the route's many corners. Every corner is named after a Japanese letter. If you watch closely, you'll see that every corner has a blue sign with a different Japanese letter. See more »

animated or not, this is the best racing movie out there.
For all those fans of drifting, (yes that small population in Australia that I'm apart of) this movie will definitely take the cake. If you are one of the many active fans of the initial d cartoon series then you have more than likely already seen the movie or otherwise keep ready. The movie is about a Young boy (Takumi) who is a delivery boy for his dads tofu store. To complete his deliveries he has to drive this mountain pass everyday at about 4am were no one is actually on the road. His route is a downhill mountain pass which he soon learns how to drift. His expert techniques guide him as he begins to challenge and defeat racers in his local and regional area. However, all that I have just said is recapped at the start of the film to fill anyone in. This film however is rather just tying up all the loss ends that he would like to conquer before he moves on. It shows Takumi graduating from school, and in a way mirrors his graduation from sort of racing school. There are some incredible races within this film that will keep you on the edge of your seat right up until the very end. There is one particular race between the AE86 and a SW20 (MR2) that is just incredible. This movie is definitely one to see for anyone who has petrol flowing through their veins or a brick for a foot.
