Episode Summary

EDIT
Although Takumi has had a great racing record so far, the time has come where Ryousuke has officially challenged him and the Eight-Six on Akina. Takumi has been acting more spaced out than ever, and that bothers Natsuki enough to think he has been ignoring her. But after Takumi explains the situation to her, she totally understands and their relationship moves to the next level.moreless

      • (They learn that Takumi has been dating a girl)
        Itsuki: (Angry) That traitor! I've never even held a girl's hand!
        Iketani: That's it! That must be the reason! I'm positive!
        Itsuki: Leave it to me! I'll take him out and interrogate him! Racers don't need girls, right Iketani?!
        Iketani: (Holding hands) Right!
        Itsuki: We are the "Lonely Racers!"
        Kenji: (Under his breath) This is sad.

      • (Iketani is reminded of Mako)
        Yuichi: Sorry, Iketani.
        Iketani: (Depressed) Don't worry about it. I've decided to go by "Iketani, the Lonely Racer." (Laughs)
        Kenji: That name sounds familiar.

    • NOTES (3)

      • In the manga, Kenta makes an appearance, and the Akagi vs. Night Kids battle arc follows the Sil-80/Usui one. Ryosuke had already raced Takumi.

        In the anime, Takumi still has Ryosuke's big battle coming up.
