I realize a place like Initial D world would likely be more fitting to ask what I’m about to.
But due to me fucking up in trying to say something in regards to a disaster a few years back, I’ve kept my distance even though I’m not even banned and could technically TRY to explain myself assuming anyone even remembers me.
But I’ll resort to that sometime later, I’m gonna ask here…even though for all I know there’s 1 or 2 people who are familiar with Initial D at all.
My per-rambling aside, let me get to the point. Also, for those who don’t want to, Initial D spoilers.
Let me get to it.
My little ‘test chapter’ starts right at the tail end of Initial D stage 4 going into stage 5.
Just as Fujiwara Takumi was about to do his downhill run in the GC8 Impreza, he’s approached by an S30 240Z.
Because of the previous race before, Takumi is still feeling a bit shaken and would have started the run steering one handed.
But then comes an S30 240Z approaching him. Because for him it resembled too much of the last time a car from behind approached him like so (the very GC8 he’s currently driving when he was in the AE86), and because it appeared the S30 driver wanted to race, Takumi takes off to try and outrun him.
But as he goes down the pass at near full speed, he finds the S30 keeping pace where it could, namely in mid to high speed bends.
He manages to keep close even mimicking or doing techniques not unlike Takumi but in the end Takumi was able to beat this driver when taking one corner better than the S30 driver. But all the while wondering who it was.
My main issue is this;
I’m wondering about what Takumi would have actually have done had this situation happened to him in canon.
Would he talk to someone else about it or would he keep it to himself till he could talk with someone he could trust (like Wataru) or would it be a bit lost given what else he’d be seeing later (such as the Project D imposters).
I’m asking because I had a few sections written up of Takumi actually talking to Ryouske about it because it had shaken him up as so.
yet on some vein I don’t quite see Takumi going to speak about it less it have some exceptions.
This may be an exception, more so since the driver in the car was not from Japan.
It’s a dilemma of mine that…I wanna ask around.
I don’t know if I’ll get anywhere here, I may just go back to Inital D world and ask there…we’ll see.
Apologies for the less than poor grammar, exhausted…till then.
