With over 30 million manga comics sold worldwide, and support across every video game platform, the Initial D drift-racing franchise is a truly global phenomenon. Previously unreleased in the UK, this is the original anime series that provided the inspiration for the live-action movie.

Volume 1 of 5 features 9 episodes at over 3 hours running time. Includes both English language version and original Japanese version with sub-titles.

When a 17 year-old delivery boy named Tak who drives an 'Eight-Six', a street term for the Toyota Trueno AE86, begins to casually get involved with the street racing scene, he unexpectedly goes up against a street racing legend in one of his first races. Soon, Tak has acquired a reputation and finds that other races are lining up for the chance to take on Tak and his famous 'Eight-Six of Mount Akina'.
