| Great movie
Basically you can consider it as the last longer episode of stage 2 or the 1st long episode of Stage 4. It doesn't stand alone like the extra stage with its own story. In this 'movie' version, you will see that Takumi is facing the wind of change. He will need to decide how move on to improvise his driving skills, technique and his knowledge in car.

In this movie, he is graduating from his high school(?), and due to his by far unmatched downhill drifting driving skills, he need to decide on how to move on. In the meanwhile, he was invited to join the Project D, initiated by the two Takahashi brothers to challenge all others skilled drivers from other areas in Japan and re-set the fasted driving time in all those areas, then the team dismissed. Before he came to his decision, he had raced the leader of the lancer evolution team, Emperor team and the son of Takumi's father's old time challenger (who had lost to Takumi's father last time). And at the end, he had also raced with Keisuke for his decision making of joining the Project D or not. Not to forget also, this movie also had showed more development of Takumi's love life. In short, its a very good movie with this time more emphasis on the emotion of the main characters. A must match for the Initial D die hard fans.
