| animated or not, this is the best racing movie out there.
For all those fans of drifting, (yes that small population in Australia that I'm apart of) this movie will definitely take the cake. If you are one of the many active fans of the initial d cartoon series then you have more than likely already seen the movie or otherwise keep ready. The movie is about a Young boy (Takumi) who is a delivery boy for his dads tofu store. To complete his deliveries he has to drive this mountain pass everyday at about 4am were no one is actually on the road. His route is a downhill mountain pass which he soon learns how to drift. His expert techniques guide him as he begins to challenge and defeat racers in his local and regional area. However, all that I have just said is recapped at the start of the film to fill anyone in. This film however is rather just tying up all the loss ends that he would like to conquer before he moves on. It shows Takumi graduating from school, and in a way mirrors his graduation from sort of racing school. There are some incredible races within this film that will keep you on the edge of your seat right up until the very end. There is one particular race between the AE86 and a SW20 (MR2) that is just incredible. This movie is definitely one to see for anyone who has petrol flowing through their veins or a brick for a foot.
