The red TOYOTA 86 on which the main character Kanata Rivington is on board runs at full speed, and a teaser visual depicting a scene of a race battle with rival cars Alpine A110S and GT-R has been released.

The unique news PV is also released on YouTube. To faithfully express the sound that is one of the essential elements of the car when animating, it is said that the sound of a real car was recorded, the engine sound of TOYOTA 86, the rival car Lamborghini his Urakan, Ferrari 488 GTB, etc. The running sound of each car is realistically expressed.

“Initial D” was serialized in “Weekly Young Magazine” (Kodansha) from 1995 to 2013. The “pass runner” battle by Takumi Fujiwara and others riding the sprinter Trueno AE86 (commonly known as Hachiroku), his father’s car that runs a tofu shop, was drawn. The AE86 on which Takumi, painted as “Fujiwara Tofu,” rides have gained popularity as it has been made into goods such as plastic models and miniature cars. It was made into an animation and a live-action movie.

Set in Japan in 202X AD, when autonomous cars became widespread, while public road car racing MFG gained popularity worldwide, Kanata Rivington, who graduated from a British racing school, went to Japan to fulfill a specific purpose—returning to Japan. It is also talked about the explanation after Takumi Fujiwara, the main character of “Initial D,” and the appearance of Keisuke Takahashi, a popular character of “Initial D.” The cumulative circulation of comics is more than 3.2 million.
