Heh, the sharp tones never ceases to amaze me in this show. If I drove like that...I'd be dead by now. Good episode and pacing especially in the latter half as they aim to be the strongest.

Much better ep then the last. Though poor Takumi that must have hurt his pride when his opponent just let him take the lead like that. Well I'm glad they still deliver on the OST.

I still dont like him facing the same type of opponent with almost the same exact car thats poor writing IMO. I wanted end-game to be his father.

Alot of re-used cutscenes but it was pretty good, Takumi struggling and get's let through ahead, we'll take it.

Well, that was unexpected. I'm not sure what to think of this development. I suppose Takumi will step it up now, Shinji will find the inspiration he's looking for and everyone will go home happy.

Imagine how good Shinji would be if Bunta was his father...regardless this kid is nuts giving Takumi the lead like that.

So, let's see... Shinji is so damn good because
1) He drove his sleeping mother (which basically plays the role of a glass of water) since he was 10, and that without having had the slightest of training
2) he knows the scenery so perfectly, since he observed the scenery from the passenger seat everyday for the last 12 years (cause its well-known, nothing ever changes during 12 years, no big deal)

Conclusion : either the kid drove while sitting on the passenger seat, in which case he's extraordinarily talented, or all this is just bullshit. Seems legit.

I love the wing scene :) I know Takumi "always" wins but I still hope to see him win this last race.

I guess this one race will take all four episodes. Shinji kind of came out of no where (when you think of the whole series)... I'm sad there wasn't some kind of overreaching rival or legend that Takumi could have faced here.

That would have been epic.

Damn this really is the toughest race he's ever had! Really interesting turn in events, I really wonder what's going to go down next!

I agree. A race between Bunta and Takumi would be more epic than this race. Inui Shinji is just a copy-past of Takumi.

But despite that, I liked this episode.

I really hate this cheap imitation for a fake Takumi. In a sense Takumi is challenged against himself, which should be great. But this is pure garbage when the author put it this way.
