The impromptu between Keisuke Takahashi and Takeshi Nakazato is the ninth battle of Initial D.

Prior to the Battle[edit | edit source]

Takumi was taking a ride to Mount Akina in Itsuki's AE85 when he begins to doubt about Takumi's relationship with Natsuki Mogi. Upon arrival to a stopping place somewhere on top of the mountain, both of them sense two cars coming towards them at high speeds. It was then they saw Keisuke Takahashi in his RX-7 FD3S racing followed closely by Takeshi Nakazato in his BNR32 GT-R.

During the Battle[edit | edit source]

It was seen as in the manga that Keisuke was driving to Mount Akina when Nakazato suddenly happened to meet him on the way and decided to have a quick battle to the top.

After the Battle[edit | edit source]

After they both reached the top, Keisuke claimed that he was not using his full potential, while hiding he was completely sweated out from this. Nakazato, though initially surprised, also claimed the same, despite him too being tired. After this, Keisuke then says that they could have a match against each other if his brother wins the race against the AE86. Nakazato then reveals to Keisuke that he wishes to have a rematch with Takumi and about how Shingo Shoji was praising about Takumi on the gum tape deathmatch match between him and Shingo despite him not always being so positive to others. He then wishes that if he could have a race against Takumi once again. Keisuke wishes his brother not to lose the battle between the him and Takumi but doesn't wish the Takumi to lose either. After this Keisuke leaves the mountain.
