Many street racers claim to be the best but not everyone likes to be the center of attention when it comes to drifting down a mountain pass. Takumi Fujiwara sees it as a troublesome task since he must do it to support his family. By racing up and down the mountain to deliver tofu early in the morning. But when others find out Takumi's secret, he is quickly swarmed by challenges from other racers. Does Takumi care enough to show that he is better?
I think they stopped making them because all the flare and hype was with the fact that Takumi was always the underdog. ALWAYS. Then in the later series, he was recognised as, like, the best racer. Honestly, it got boring around the 4th stage. But it was an epic anime, probably my favourite of all time!
