More than a manga, Initial D is a cultural phenomenon. Upon its release, Initial D perfectly captured the world of Japanese street racing and kicked off a global craze.

But it all starts here, with the Initial D manga.
Live the legend of how Tak Fujiwara went from tofu delivery boy to street-racing god.
Tak Fujiwara spends a lot of time behind the wheel. His tofu delivery job sends him racing down the treacherous roads of Mount Akina, and without even realizing it, Tak has mastered racing techniques that take most drivers a lifetime to learn. Of course, none of his friends realize this. They’re all too busy watching the Akina Speed Stars, the local street racing team. When the legendary Red Suns show up to challenge the Speed Stars, it looks as if the Trueno Eight Six that has been seen racing through the mountain roads will take them on. The question remains … who’s the driver of this phantom car?
Volumes 1-38 of Initial D are available now, with more to follow later this year.
