MF Ghost premieres next year

MF Ghost

The upcoming racing anime MF Ghost is expected to premiere sometime next year.

MF Ghost follows the live of Kanata Livington, a Japanese racer from Britain who returns to Japan after graduating from a “top racing school” in the UK. His new life in Japan takes off quickly as he enters a race using an old Toyota and borrows his father’s name for the registration in the event.

After a good showing in such an old vehicle, Kanata is taken under the wing of the legendary racer Takumi Fujiawara. With Fujiawara’s patronage, it becomes harder for the veteran racers to ignore the young upstart who begins giving it his all in the Japanese racing scene.

Year 202X. Self-driving electric cars have replaced internal combustion engine-based cars, becoming ubiquitous in Japan. However, a racing circuit known as MFG, which employs traditional internal combustion cars, is garnering popularity worldwide.

Kanata Livington, a 19-year-old Japanese-British racer, comes to Japan after graduating from a top racing school in the United Kingdom to take part in MFG and find his missing father, Ken Katagiri. Kanata moves to the home of his late mother’s friends—Mr. and Mrs. Saionji—and enters the race under his father’s surname, borrowing a Toyota 86 from Ogata, the couple’s family friend. Despite the overwhelming disadvantages in specs, Kanata makes it to the top 15 while racing top-tier supercars, demonstrating his phenomenal skills.

Takumi Fujiwara, the legendary downhill and rally racer, turns out to be Kanata’s trainer. MFG employees who are familiar with Fujiwara and former racers from the same generation begin to notice Kanata. A new whirlwind is about to set off at MFG.

MF Ghost is the latest series from studio Felix Film whos previous work includes this season’s Aharen-san wa Hakarenai and last year’s Otherside Picnic.
