Dear Shigeno

Thank you so much for this beautifully thrilling story you've written.
It was one of the first anime I ever saw and I immediately fell in love.
Even for a young girl who knew nothing about cars, it was truly enjoyable. Initial D will always have a special place in my heart, and I know it's the same for many others all over the world. I would sit on the edge of my chair during the races, cheering with Takumi every time he won. Even though I had a hard time feeling happy in day-to-day life, the banter in Initial D always cheered me up. Years later, even after rewatching it many times, this hasn't changed.
So thanks, and I hope you still have many happy and healthy years in front of you <3
