As electric vehicles dominate everyday life in the 2020s, interest in traditional combustion engine cars is maintained through a motorsports series known as the MFG. Hundreds of ambitious drivers, with a staggering 30 million viewers online, fiercely compete for a spot in the Godly Fifteen—the leading 15 racers—and a chance at the grand prize of 100 million yen. Among these individuals aiming for the top is 19-year-old Kanata Rivington.

Having attended a famous racing school in England, Kanata sets his sights on the upcoming MFG tournament and enrolls in the competition under the alias "Kanata Katagiri." In comparison to his opponents' flashy vehicles, Kanata's Toyota 86 GT, passed down from a former MFG contestant, puts him at a considerable disadvantage. Kanata receives guidance from a Godly Fifteen member, but he still treats the MFG as only a stepping stone for his true goal: locating his estranged father. Meanwhile, Kanata's appearance sends shockwaves through the scene as his driving style eerily resembles that of a once legendary racer.

I know it’s insane to say as someone who grew up in the 90s and 2000s, but I’ve never seen Initial D. Therefore, I don’t have the emotional and nostalgic connection that many people have with MF Ghost and it didn’t resonate with me.

As someone who hadn’t seen Initial D, I found MF Ghost to be decent on the whole. There’s some really epic racing scenes, hot girls and comedy, but that’s about it. Or never really crossed into the really good territory for me. It was clear that this series plays heavily on nostalgia for a bygone era and a previous series, and ...

Mixed Feelings
Caution: MF Ghost is not an Initial D successor.

It's best to judge MF Ghost on its own rather than comparing it to Initial D because it falls far short in comparison. It's passable on its own, but it doesn't have the same essence and soul as the original, which made it such a success.

This show loves referencing the fact that it is even linked to Initial D.
It literally tries to reference it in every spot imaginable; it likes to reference Takumi, but he isn't even in Japan anymore; Ryosuke has only made an appearance on screen; and the only Initial D characters shown in MF ...

TLDR: Save yourself the time and just stick with the original Initial D

MF Ghost is an Initial D copy with all personality and charm stripped off. The anime tries to score nostalgia points and that's all it has. The cast are carbon copies of the original cast, but have nothing interesting going on. There is no real interaction with any of the other racers. The races themselves have 0 stakes and just sort of happen.

This show only seems to exists to gouge if there's enough interest to milk the IP. That's honestly the only reason I can think off why this exists.
