History[edit | edit source]

Manga/Anime/Legends[edit | edit source]

After being defeated by Eikichi Shimamura, Takeshi Nakazato decides to buy a Nissan Skyline GT-R R32, and changes his driving style from drift to grip. At some point he became leader of the Myogi NightKids.

Takeshi attends the battle between Takumi Fujiwara and Keisuke Takahashi, after which he wishes tor race the Eight-Six, amazed with his skills. Nakazato has an impromptu battle with Ryosuke Takahashi on Akina a few days later, with the two of them discussing their beliefs on how someone can beat the Eight-Six. He later battles against two racers, who he passes easy.

Takeshi travels to the gas station where Takumi works in order to challenge him to a battle the next Saturday, giving his challenge to Itsuki Takeuchi to pass on. Takumi arrives for the battle on Akina, with Nakazato wishing to prove that drifting is only for show, and has no benefit when it comes to speed. Nakazato manages to keep his lead, however Takumi slowly closes the gap between them with every corner. The two drivers enter the five hairpins one after another, with Takeshi understeering on one of the turns, due to his tires wearing down, allowing Takumi to pass.

Prior to the battle between Takumi and Ryosuke, Nakazato was involved in an impromptu battle with Keisuke Takahashi on Akina. After the battle, the two of them agreed to a rematch when the Akagi RedSuns head to Myogi. Takeshi takes the lead at the beginning, his car being more powerful on the straightaways. However, Keisuke's FD has the advantage in the corners, allowing him to keep up. The race becomes a rain battle near its end, and in the small downhill section before the finish line Keisuke overtakes and winning the race.

During Emperor's Gunma sweep, Takeshi represented the Myogi NightKids in a hillclimb battle against Seiji Iwaki. Iwaki was easily able to overtake Takeshi and gains a huge lead before he crashes into the concrete sides of the course.
