This is simply the OVA summing up the major events and battles of "Initial D 4th Stage" much like the "Initial D Battle Stage" original summed up the first 3 seasons. Additionally, has 2 extra battles from the manga that were not incorporated into the original 4th Stage.

Well , I don't want to rate this OVA since its the sum up of the races that happened in Fourth Stage.

I would recommend watching this just because of the two extra battles that weren't shown in the TV series (Keisuke's FD versus Smiley Sakai's DC2 Integra, and Keisuke's FD versus Atsuro Kawai's ER34) and of course to anyone who wants to re-live the exciting battle races.

Also , the best time to watch it , should be right after Fourth stage , before entering fifth stage.

Have fun!

Much better than the first battle stage in my opinion, as well as much longer.
Better visuals, and new eurobeat tracks on each race too!

It's a packing of all the races from the fourth stage but it also adds some races that were exclusive to the manga, which is really nice and interesting.
You can see a lot of what Keisuke went through and how his character evolved before fifth stage as the newly animated races are focused on him.
Makes it actually worth watching even if you've seen the entire fourth stage.
Overall a nice experience to rewatch old races and to remember the good moments ...

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".
