Join us for the first two parts of this epic racing Anime: Initial D Legend 1: Awakening and Initial D Legend 2: Racer!

Legend 1: Awakening
The wheels are set in motion as Koichiro Iketani of the Akina Speedstars witnesses a mysterious driver outmaneuver and beat rival Keisuke Takahashi of Akagi RedSuns. The impromptu race, he later discovers, was won by none other than his very own co-worker at the gas station, Takumi Fujiwara, the son of a legendary racer. In the high- paced world of street racing, Takumi shakes it up with an extraordinary racing style as the Speedstars and the RedSuns go head to head on Mount Akina.

Legend 2: Racer
The leader of rival group Myogi NightKids, Takeshi Nakazato, wants to challenge the now infamous Takumi Fujiwara in a race down Akina. As Takumi questions his identity as a racer, he finds that, there’s more to lose than just a simple race. When another member of the NightKids causes Takumi’s friend to cash his car, Takumi takes on the treacherous twists and turns down Mount Akina in his most challenging race yet.
