Initial D, Volume 23
Proving that passing Daiki was no fluke, Tak wins his race. Now it’s up to K.T. to keep up the momentum as he takes on Toudou’s ”Smiley” Sakai. They call the guy ”Smiley,” because in the heat of battle his face scrunches up into what might be deceptively described as a grin. Sakai’s smile quickly fades, though, when K.T. beats him in their race. After this defeat a long absent member of the Toudou team comes back to defend the team’s sullied reputation ... a member so tough that even Kyoichi calls Ryosuke to warn him.
