* MirrorMatch: What Takumi's battle with [[spoiler:Shinji]] in ''Final Stage'' essentially boils down to. [[spoiler:Shinji]] drives a stock AE86, and has been driving the pass every night for many years, to the point of mastery. Like Takumi, he doesn't see the appeal in racing at first, and like Takumi, he has to be persuaded to participate by the local racers. In short, Takumi is up against himself at the start of the series.

In America, both the manga and anime were originally licensed by Creator/{{Tokyopop}}, whose alterations of the source material became controversial among the fans. When Tokypop USA imploded in 2011, picked up the rights to the anime; they carry the first four Stages, as well as the first Extra Stage OVA set. They also created a more accurate English dub, just as they had with ''Franchise/OnePiece'.[[http://www.funimation.com/shows/initial-d/videos You can stream those episodes on their website, dubbed or subbed, for free here.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/user/FUNimation/search?query=Initial+D Their YouTube Channel also has each episode available for free, albeit subbed only.]]

** On a larger scale, the plot itself has BookEnds. Both ''First Stage'' and ''Final Stage'' feature a young man who has been driving the local mountain pass every night for many years for reasons unrelated to racing. This young man is asked by the local racers to help defeat an invading team headed by Ryousuke Takahashi that has been going around conquering all the courses in the area. He does not see the appeal at first, as he does not realize how fast he truly is. However, he hesitantly accepts, and drives the course as he would normally. During the course of the battle, he gets fired up due to being challenged for the first time.

Naturally, his secretly-instilled skills never went unnoticed by the Japanese street racing underground. When the local racing team, the Speed Stars, get a challenge from the infamous [=RedSuns=] led by Takahashi brothers Keisuke and Ryosuke -- the former whom Takumi met the night before -- the team had to take him in as replacement for their currently-injured main driver.

Takumi Fujiwara is an average eighteen-year-old teenager in the Gunma Prefecture with an average part-time job as a gas station attendant and a not-so-average hand in his family's tofu business. Ever since he was thirteen -- five years before he was even qualified for a driver's license -- he has been helping out his father Bunta by delivering tofu on the latter's Toyota [=AE86=] ("Sprinter Trueno" in Japan, "Corolla GT-S" in America) to a hotel at the summit of Mt. Akina every morning at 4:00 AM, but with a challenge: he must negotiate the slopes and curves without spilling a drop of water from a cup placed on the dashboard.
