Editorial Reviews

Takumi's rise to the top the street racing underground is the stuff of legend, but his status as the best is on the line once again. Team Emperor s in town with a singular goal: crush all opposition. The team's drivers are as aggressive as their cars are advanced, and Akina's Eight-Six might be outclassed. There s a chance that Takumi s skills have surpassed the abilities of his beloved machine, and if he wants to maintain his rep, severe modifications must be made. Unfortunately, mechanical woes aren t his only problem, thanks to some rumors going around about his girl. The distractions are definitely stacking up, and so are the challengers. That means it s time for Takumi to do what he does best keep his eyes on the road ahead and floor it.

A must watch for car and racing enthusiasts. I'd recommend seeing First Stage first though as the characters will then be more familiar, however, I didn't feel the Second Stage lived up to the high bar the First Stage set. Instead it kind of felt like a "filler season" between First and Third Stages, while Third Stage felt like a bridge between 1st and 4th Stages, though I'm yet to see the 4th stage. That said there still are some important points visited for the overall plot of Initial D.

I'd say the Second Stage is the least important of the series but it's still plenty good enough to watch.

Initial D. Stage 2. Although not as strong as the first season of the series, stage 2 of Initial D is an enjoyable box ride.

The box set includes all 13 episodes of the second season of Initial D plus an OVA 60 hour long movie focusing around the female racing team of Impact Blue.

Disc 1 and 2 --- A new street racing team known as the Emperors' invade the prefecture of Gunma attempting to defeat all of the street racers in the area. Team Emperor is arrogant, smug, cockey, and abrasive in their approach. Driving Mitsubishi 4WD Land Evos the emperor's are lead by Kyuchi Sudo, a former stock racer and graduate of a top tier racing school in Japan.

The Speed Stars, Night Kids, and Red Suns unite to fight off this new threat.

The second half of stage 2 centers around Takumi and his development as a street racer. Throw in a romance for Itsuki and the breaking of the relationship between Takumi and Natsuki and you have yourself a nice back story in between the racing.

OVA -- The OVA is about Impact Blue and the first half of the OVA is about Mako's psychological recovery after the events that unfolded between herself and Iketani. A pair of Team Emperor races arrive in their town of Usui, thus Mako and Sayuki suit up in their Nissan Sileighty to fight off the challenge.

The second half of the OVA is about Sayuki and Shigo of the Night Kids attempting to 'set up' Mako with a new boyfriend. It is a nice story that is more about relationships and the Mako character then it is about street racing.

Nakazato (Who develops a crush on Sayuki) and Shingo of the Night Kids appear in the OVA.

Overall Stage II and the OVA of Initial D is a good box set. Once again Funimation does an excellent job with their dubbing.
