The battle between Keisuke Takahashi and Wataru Akiyama is the thirty-fifth battle of Initial D.
Prior to the Battle[edit | edit source]
During the Battle[edit | edit source]
It's pouring with rain at Maze, but that does not discourage either driver - in fact, it emboldens Wataru, who has replaced his Levin's turbo engine with a supercharged 4A-GZE, allowing for smoother power delivery compared to Keisuke's powerful but finnicky turbo 13B. The result of the first hillclimb is inconclusive, and the battle drags on for a while until both drivers are exhausted. Already fatigued, Wataru tries to increase the speed of his wipers and forgets a drain is nearby, losing control of the Levin as he runs over it and narrowly being avoided by Keisuke.
After the Battle[edit | edit source]
Defeated officially this time, Wataru concedes to Keisuke.
