- The first in the new Initial D Legend theatrical triology is a bold retelling of the early stages of Shuichi Shigeno’s long-running manga. The film begins with when aspiring racer Koichiro Iketani witnesses an unplanned street duel between Keisuke Takahashi, a member of a rival race team, and a mysterious Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86. What Koichiro doesn’t know is that the driver is fellow gas station attendant Takumi Fujiwara, who was making a late-night tofu delivery for his father, a legendary Mt. Akina driver himself.
- The legendary series that introduced the west to the sport of drift racing is reinvented in an all new feature film that’s even faster and more furious than ever before. Be sure not to miss out on this opportunity, so click that link above to know when tickets go on sale.
