Summary of MF Ghost

The series is set in the 2020s, when self-driving electric cars have replaced cars with internal combustion engines. However, in Japan there is a large organization called MFG, founded by Ryosuke Takahashi (of the Initial D-series) that conducts street racing with internal combustion engine cars. A new rookie, Kanata Livington, who goes by the alias Kanata Katagiri, a 19-year-old Japanese-British youngster, has taken to the stage in a Toyota 86, beating top European cars like the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Ferrari 488 GTB , the Lotus Exige, the Alfa Romeo 4C, the Lexus LC500 and the Porsche 911 Carrera. Trained by legendary downhill and rally driver Takumi Fujiwara (Star of the Initial D-Series) at the Royal Donington Racing School in Great Britain, Kanata is a World Champion in Formula 4. He has only one motive: to find his missing father.
