Exploring the Rite of Passage in Initial D

Categories: FilmRacing

I have chosen the film 'initial D' because it has an interesting story about a teenager 'Takumi Fujiwara' (Jay Chou) had been driving since he was 13. His dad 'Bunta Fujiwara' (Anthony Wong) purposely forced him to drive so that he could help to deliver the tofu because he had a bad back not just that Bunta wanted Takumi to be a road racer. And his dad gave him a cup of water and put it on the holder and when drives fast the cup of water spins round so that he doesn't break the tofu.

By not breaking the tofu and driving fast it gives him the technique of how to race, now that he's 18 years old and now he's in university with his best friend 'Itsuki Takeuchi' (Chapman) also he has a girl which he has a crush on since they were childhood 'Natsuki Mogi' (Anne Suzuki) they had been spending time with each other. Takumi thinks he's not interested in street racing but with the skills like a professional other road racer says he's the monster of Akina (mountain).

'Ryosuke Takahashi' (Edison Chan) used to be the legendary road racer after no one knew about Bunta he was also known as the street king.

But when Takumi had raced different racers from different teams such as 'Takeshi Nakazato' (Shawn Yue) and Ryosuke he became a legendary racer, When Takumi had raced another racer 'Kyoichi Sudo' (Jordan Chan) Takumi's engine had been broken down during his race and lost. Takumi' work place is a petrol station Bunta has an old friend 'Yuuichi Tachibana' (Kenny Bee) secretly bought an engine that was never seen before an engine for street racers after weeks the engine was replaced Takumi was surprised that the car has been given to him.

For Takumi he seemed to enjoy racing and Takumi had a bit of difficulty with the engine is because he needs a tachometer because he didn't know the limit so he had his dad to show him how to drive and teached him some words never forget is 'Don't use strength to strength to beat others, the one you have to beat is yourself' Takumi and Ryosuke raced with Kyoichi a rematch and in the end Kyoichi crashed then Takumi had beaten Ryosuke at racing. Takumi heard his girlfriend wasn't coming home until next week that night after he raced with Kyoichi.

Next day Itsuki saw her with another man in a love hotel, Itsuki had told Takumi but he didn't believe it and caused a fight and never talked. Then the next day he saw her with another man dropped her off and was heartbroken Natsuki felt shamed for lying and had cheated, Takumi had ran and drove off Natsuki couldn't keep up and they never seen each other. Takumi had ringed Itsuki and said 'sorry' they made up. Bunta has been proud of Takumi, Bunta had known that Takumi can race and beat any other racers out there but the one he couldn't beat is his dad.

The characters Jay Chou, Edison Chan, Anthony Wong, Shawn Yue, Anne Suzuki, Chapman, Jordan Chan, and Kenny Bee are known as singers and actors. Takumi is my best character because he's like a quite person and not into girls much and he has a good voice for singing which I have one of his album 'Novembers Chopin' and I think Jay Chou's a best road racer in the whole of Japan because of all the races he had been through and never had lost. I think Edison is like me because we look down at other people who are not like us, and once we make up our minds once never change it.

My favourite part of the story is when Takumi had been spending time with Natsuki like going to the beach and when Takumi had his first kiss by Natsuki, then when he goes to work the next day his friend teases him like he has love sickness, Takumi's just standing there holding the broom closing his eyes and smiling. The harsh bit at the end was when Takumi had been heartbroken and when Takumi ran off without saying anything just staring at her when she got out the car. Natsuki felt ashamed for being with another guy and just left each other hurt.

I would improve the story by not having harsh story and happy endings like instead of the Takumi just standing there he could have beaten the guy up and also not just standing in front of Natsuki looking at her he could have had done something if he really loved her. I would recommend the film to like teenagers because they would feel more emotional and would enjoy the film and also they could learn about when they having a relationship never cheat with the one you love or love most and how good it is spending time with one another would build up relationships.
