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.
"Inca no mezame potatoes" (recipe)
You deep fry them straight into cooking oil without any batter. You don't boil the inca no mezames... once the deep frying is done, you toss them into a stew.

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

This is truly an all out battle, Takumi will definitely have to put a lot of effort in order to beat momma's boy like Shinji
