After spending his summer racing against some of the best racers in Gunma, Takumi Fujiwara receives a formal challenge from the leader of the Akagi Red Suns, Ryousuke Takahashi. Despite his initial reluctance to get into the hobby, Takumi cannot help but feel excited to go up against the former "White Comet of Akagi." In preparation for the battle, Ryousuke downgrades his car, putting his pride and racing career at stake.

With the title of the fastest racer in all of Gunma on the line, will Takumi and his panda-colored Toyota AE86 be able to defeat Ryousuke's Mazda RX-7 FC?

When it comes to culturally significant, iconic media, purists are often concerned that any origin story or adaptations run the risk of trying too hard to reinvent the wheel. Initial D is no exception to this rule. The Legend Trilogy has faced a considerable amount of criticism. Much of this was focused on the removal of Eurobeat from the score and soundtrack, and it was argued that it took away the essence that was Initial D. I will argue tooth-and-nail against that because the final installment of the Legend Trilogy proved that the essence of Initial D is the character development of relatable hometown heroes. ...

To be honest I'm just happy to see more of Initial D. I can't say that it's better than just sit down and watch the first season sadly but it can't be helped since the movie need to cut down some details for limited run time.

Well first things first, the art style and animation is in my opinion definitely improved. The characters got modern touch as well (especially the girls, they got more moe factor) which is subtle but noticeable.
They really followed the manga for the visual instead of going the realistic route that season 5 and 6 went for. The smokes are drawn instead ...

This portion of initial D focuses mostly on the battle between Ryousuke in his Mazda Savanna RX-7 FC3S, and Takumi in the AE86 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-APEX. Nothing is changed in the major story arcs.

(Small spoilers from here, mostly consisting of what is changed from the original arc)

Takumi in this arc is racing "Akagi's White Comet" also known as Ryousuke ...

Nothing gets the blood pumping like a high-intensity race, be it in a car, bike, or even mecha suit. Youthful passion and energy fuel these shows about drivers, pilots and athletes all striving for that #1 spot. As Ricky Bobby once famously said, "If you ain't first, you're last".
