Anime and Manga Differences[]

  • Mika's apology to Takumi happened before Fake Project D were caught but in the anime, she apologised after they were caught.
  • Most scenes involving the Project D team inside their cabin aren't shown in the anime.
  • A scene where Takumi avoids a car crash in the Impreza while riding with Mika is cut from the anime.
  • Yuichi Tachibana is absent from the anime, most of the dialogue is replaced by Kenji, while in the manga he is especially present during the final Project D race.
  • In the rematch between Takumi and Kai, Ken and Bunta meets up in Lake Akina to discuss about the battle. Meanwhile in the anime this was changed to Ken calling Bunta on the phone to discuss about the battle.
  • The part in the manga which shows Satoshi's Roadster's wing getting damaged by a signpost was not shown
