Day 19: Most Epic Scene Ever
** Please Note: There will be major spoilers ahead for Initial D First Stage. Please, read at your own discretion. **
I remember one of the biggest build-ups for the first season was Takumi Fujiwara’s battle with Ryōsuke Takahashi, as Ryōsuke was the most prestigious and talented racer during that time. He was undefeated and his brilliance for the sport was damn-well renown.
When they finally have their battle, the most jaw-dropping and iconic scene to ever occur was in those handful of seconds when Takumi’s AE86 passes Ryōsuke’s FC for the victory. It was an utter HOLY SHIT moment.
As a former racer, the feeling that comes from defeating such a powerful opponent, one who is equated to being a God of the sport, is breathtakingly indescribable. There’s nothing more epic than that moment.
