Yes it is if you are a viewer or fan of the “Initial D” anime and for my 237th post is a reproduction of the car used by the protagonist Takumi from the Dream Tomica series.

I would consider myself a late follower of this series as Initial D first appeared in a Japanese weekly magazine back in 1995. The story which I borrowed from Fandom is about Takumi Fujiwara (藤原拓海 Fujiwara Takumi), the main protagonist of Initial D and is friends and associated with the Akina SpeedStars. He is the driver of the Toyota Sprinter AE86 Trueno GT Apex or simply the Eight-Six, originally belonging to his father Bunta, and forcibly became the delivery boy of his father’s tofu business, doing deliveries in the morning at Mount Akina.

Since the story is about illegal street racing that usually involves drifting racing style, I experimented with creating shots of the AE86 with Takumi* drifting.
