Trivia[]

  • Extra Stage 2 is the only series that the Takahashi brothers don't appear, however Ryosuke is mentioned by Takumi.
  • The OVA takes place during the Tochigi arc, with the opening segment with Takumi being set in between Project D's races between the Seven Star Leaves and the Todo School.
  • The two Altezza drivers also appear in the extra chapter Waste Gate.
  • This is the last series in which Speedstar cars can be seen in action, as from the next series they no longer have a prominent role (especially Iketani's S13). The only exceptions are Itsuki's Levin (only in the very first few episodes) and Kenji's 180SX (who usually comes to the gas station).
  • Extra Stage 2 it may be sadly known as a start on Kochiro Iketani's decline, of the fact that he hasn't changed enough even after Initial D (especially from the fact that in MF Ghost he still remained single). This is also due to the little development on the character.
