Hey everybody I didn't see a thread with Initial D so I decided to start one, post back aything about Initial D.
They are up to episodes 17 & 18 Fourth Stage now, and episodes 19 & 20 will be aired n the 15th of October.
Fourth stage has much better cgi sequences and graphics and the animation drawings are better too, the cars look very good also.

4th Stage is not as great as the original 1st Stage. Although the graphics are much more improved, along with the animation, it leaves very little room for character development. Races are quite predictable, as we already know who's going to win or not. The only 2 episodes so far that've caught on to me were, the one against Tomo (the professional racer), and the race between the 86 and Cappuccino-K.

Has anyone watch the live action movie yet? Any good?

I have. If your a fan of the anime. You probably wont like it cuz the movies storyline is a lil different from the anime. And it kept showing Bunta getting drunk :lol: I thought it was alright.

Yeah I like the episodes when Takumi challenged the Todou Jukdou School guys especially the Pro racer with the yellow EK9 civic. True though about the predictable races and no room for character growth, I'm wondering what will happen to Iketani ever since he missed his chance with that Mako girl in the 1st stage, also whats gonna happen to Itsuki hah funny guy.

.

Do any of you guys like the Initial D soundtracks and music, I like em especially the Intro and End Credits songs from MOVE.
