Still a pretty tense race. Idk about damages but this is real competition. Great turn maneuvers as usual. I'm pretty sure this race conclude next time but it's still a pretty close one.

Same this is the worst part in the entire series. If his dad was end game it would had been so much better. The author went out the cheap way make somebody just like him younger and with same car to be his last race.

Oh... so this is the final race. I agree a race with his dad would've been better.

I don't care about Shinji... and so much repetitive dialogue... little action...

Eh, well one more episode.

Oh man that was good. Shinji was showing off to Mako with that overtake. That's pretty hilarious and it seems it truly was a bad time to overtake him there. Glad it awaken Takumi's stubborn side since it seems his willing to go all out now.

Yeah, i'm done with this. What a disappointing final. None of it makes sense.

I'll watch the last episode, but what a let-down...

I agree with everyone else here that these last episodes are a little too focused on Shinji. I was hoping for a conclusion! For everything to be wrapped together! For us to get a look at all the old characters!

Ah well. Go Takumi, show that kid you're the AE86 master!

Oh boy this is intense! Really looking forward to see what the last episode of this franchise has to offer and how this race will end! Probably the most intense race from the whole franchise!

I agree with you, there are too many dialogues and the episode don't focus enough on the race.

Takumi didn't even feel like the protagonist for the first half, they are really giving a lot of spotlight to Shinji, and I guess it's nice, but as always, they are dragging the race for longer than necessary, not that I really expected something else, but it's really going to take the four episodes for it to end. Let's see how this plays out, since it isn't just about this race, there's also the need for closure for everything else.

Huh, at first it seemed like Takumi had no chance, but now, seems like Takumi has a fair chance, especially with his driving-copying from behind. Let's see how this will end.

Takumi is learning. Don't lose faith, Shinji.

This race continues to be a good one.

Seeing how Mako impressed Shinji, I thought he might want to overtake Takumi enar the position she was at. And he indeed did it like that. :D

One episode left.

Shinji truly is a mommy's boy after all haha

Takumi can finally keep up with Shinji. I'm guessing that he'll use his blind attack near the end of the race

FUCK SHINJI, ALL MY HOMIES HATE SHINJI.

this knock-off takumi already pissed me off and then he went and bumped takumi's car intentionally.

his mom called him a wimp tho lmao and 'drivers are alone' reminded me of itsuki the lonely driver.

So this is almost it, not surprised if Shinji tasted pressure it's going to affect him so heavily, from that smug look to this frustrated feeling that was quick, Now I'm excited how this series will end and how this race will finish.

Holy fuck, holy fuck! I felt like sweating bullets this episode! I felt so angry, so angry when Shinji overtook Takumi, that humiliation, in front of Mako and his previous rivals... I just felt the pure and intense need of overtake him! Insulting me that way, it just would make me so so angry! I want Takumi to win at him! To leave him in the dust! And yeah, this episode didn't have that much eurobeat... but that moment... that moment in the curve in the third hairpin with the full eurobeat song! Holy fuck! What a bliss! What incredible intensity! Initial D might be the best anime of all time! Absolutely incredible! I feel my whole body vibrating with ecstasy! Wow! Just wow! You will regret awakening the demon Shiji! Show him who's boss Takumi, beat that little piece of sorry shit.


And that face from the Sidewinder guy lol, he is so confident... I will be waiting to see your reaction once he wins, oh, it will be so delightful! So so delightful!

Tomorrow it will be the final episode, ciao!

I am waiting for it since the overtake! I want him to do it now! To make himself disappear and make Shinji shit himself! You dont mess with the Taku!
