What is the Story of MF Ghost?
In a time when driving is going out of fashion and self-driving cars are aiming to replace it, a racing circuit known as MFG is gaining significant popularity while keeping the sport alive. The protagonist, Kanata, is a man who recently returned to Japan after graduating from a racing school. While he comes back home in hopes of finding his father, he cannot keep his eyes off racing for long and ends up joining.
Despite having an inferior car, he turns heads with the skill he demonstrates and soon becomes the center of attention. While hoping to gain clues to his father’s whereabouts through this circuit, Kanata ends up going deeper and deeper into the world of Racing while unveiling all the secrets it holds.
The story contains all the great aspects one expects, right from a cast of memorable characters to high-octane driving which keeps us at the edge of our seats. To make things better, the clips from the trailer also seem to have brought all the manga panels to life while completely elevating the series as a whole.
