The Complete Initial D Episode and Movie Guide

Updated on June 30, 2013

Initial D Background

Initial D is a popular Japanese anime cartoon which started out as a manga series in 1995, featured in Young Magazine. It is about a high-school student who works as a delivery driver for his father's tofu shop, who is introduced to the touge, or mountain road, street racing scene by one of his friends who notices his driving talent. He eventually works his way up the ranks in the scene, battling a wide array of drivers and cars, as well as taking his driving skills to mountain roads away his home turf of Mount Akina.

It eventually turned into the TV series in 1998, spanning four lengthy seasons with a full length animated movie in the mix, known as 'stages'. There has also been two 'Extra Stages' released, which includes previously finished but unseen footage, as well as two 'Battle Stages' which are compilations of previous battles and unreleased footage. They went on to producing a live action movie in 2005.
