Natsuki Mogi (茂木 なつき Mogi Natsuki, known as Natalie in the Tokyopop version) is Takumi Fujiwara's initial love interest, and one of the few characters who does not get scared when riding in a car being driven by Takumi.


The White Ghost of Akina[]

Natsuki talks with Takumi at school

Natsuki, before falling in love with Takumi Fujiwara, engaged in enjo kōsai (known as compensated dating) with an older man nicknamed "Papa", but it is unknown for how long she did this. It was also revealed that she had also hooked up with Miki, Takumi's classmate, and she has had sexual contact with him before. After all of this, she befriended Takumi Fujiwara and started to get to know him.

Natsuki and Takumi kisses in his Trueno

She quickly fell in love with him and began doubting her relationship with Papa. The two quickly began dating soon after, and in one notable scene the two kissed in Takumi's AE86 Trueno. Takumi's first ever official race, which was with Keisuke Takahashi, was indirectly due to Mogi as she wanted to go to the beach with Takumi and when Takumi wanted his father's car (back then it belonged to Bunta Fujiwara). Bunta offered him a deal to race Keisuke, and if he wins the battle, he will give him the Eight-Six with a full tank of gas. Takumi wins the battle and takes the car to go to a date with Natsuki. Later on she comments his Trueno as 'cute'. Particularly in the anime, Natsuki even supported Itsuki by introducing him to a friend of her. She later explained to Takumi that she broke off with Itsuki after they both got confronted into an impromptu battle with Shingo which resulted in Itsuki getting into an accident with Saori. Exclusively in First Stage Natsuki comes to witness Takumi's battle with Ryosuke and sees him crossing the finish line.


Takumi and Natsuki meets Tsukamoto

Takumi battles against the 180SX

Exclusively in the manga, Takumi and Natsuki is met by Tsukamoto, a senior of Takumi at the football club. He invited both of them to visit Akagi to witness the awe of touge racing (he was not aware of the fact that Takumi was the 'White Ghost of Akina'). Later that night, Tsukamoto tries to show off his driving skills in 180SX, but instead scares both Takumi and Natsuki with his mediocre driving. Natsuki, after reaching the top, felt sick and tries to balance herself, but accidentally grazes her hands lightly another couple's S13 parked on the top and they begin to harass her. Natsuki felt she was not in the right place and in the right mood to enjoy with Takumi. Later on, when they were leaving Akagi, the same couple passes them. Natsuki asks Takumi to race them when Tsukamoto, who gave Takumi to drive his 180SX to see how his skills were, engages in an impromptu battle which ends one sided for Takumi. The couple was shocked, Tsukamoto fainted, and Natsuki cheerful and not feeling sick when Takumi raced them.

Natsuki seen with her 'papa'

Afterwards, Natsuki felt the urge to break off her relationship with her Papa and pursue a relationship with Takumi. However, by that time, Takumi had began receiving letters behind her back about her detailing on how she is dating an older man who drove Mercedes. Shiraishi gave him the information. She was Natsuki's friend, and the daughter of the Benz Papa. She had a crush on Takumi Fujiwara before Natsuki and was jealous about it. Natsuki invited her Papa to a small family restaurant in the night, and formally broke her relationship off with him. Takumi, watching from his car in the parking lot, witnessed the two exit the restaurant and both enter a white Mercedes. Enraged, Takumi cuts contact with Mogi and heads off to Akagi to face off against Kyoichi Sudo, who earlier asked Takumi to battle against him. Takumi didn't have any plans to battle him initially, but after being enraged on seeing Mogi with another man, he decided to steam off all his anger by facing Kyoichi in a battle. This ended with Takumi blowing up his engine in the middle of the battle.

Takumi reveals her truth

Takumi ever since that day he decided to avoid meeting with her. Mogi attempts to solve the problem with Takumi, asking if she had done something wrong. He replies with, "Good luck with the Benz guy" (English TV: Good luck with your buddy in the Mercedes), to her shock. She later contacts him and clears up the misunderstanding, and decides to remain friends. After leaving Benz Papa, Natsuki decides to work at a Fastfood restaurant as her part time job to earn money on her own.
