There are so many ways the epilogue can be represented. Its like Kojima with Metal Gear Solid 2 with it's loose representation after the game until Metal Gear Solid 4 red-cons it. ID will never have a story continuing Final Stage.

Ryousuke actually did offer to fix it in the manga. Takumi just ended up declining.
The anime just ended up leaving that out in the process of giving Initial D something resembling an actual ending and squeezing that into what was left of Act 4 (whereas the manga gets to Takumi rolling backwards to victory, then immediately timeskips to Takumi being at Project D's disbanding party, Yuuichi and the Speed Stars at the gas station being sad about the 86, Ryousuke's monologue at Kaori's grave; then there's a page or two of the Impreza driving down Akina with Takumi noting in a single line that everything started there. THE, END)

Also, Takumi decides to scrap the 86. The anime changed that too.

The manga ending feels weird to me. Takumi deciding to scrap the car just feel like out of character.

The author did it to say the series is over until he realized that it was a terrible way to announce the ending.
So we got a GT86 running next to the Impreza in the ending clip of the anime.

Takumi would make a good rally driver.

I'm starting to think once 2003 rolls around in Initial D's timeline he's gonna join like 5 Subaru forums.

i'm pretty sure ID has a floating timeline, which means it's present day. i also think he'd be a good rally driver

Watching how the race ending with Shinji reminds me of Takumi's first encounter with Sudo when his motor blew.

Couldn't Takumi's engine blowing at the end be considered as a defeat as well?

Funny thing is about a week ago there was some survey asking Japanese manga readers which seinen (young adult) manga they would like to see continued and Initial D ranked number 1.

It makes me wonder if that would motivate Shigeno to continue Initial D considering his current work hasn't really done well.

He should continue it, i believe there is a fan base considering cars always have a fan base. Just focus on a more laid back story. There is still so many cars he can race.

I'm glad Takumi didn't scrap the 86 in the anime.

Yeah, nearing the end of the series Shigeno started making batshit decisions, like scrapping the 86.

It was probably the director of Final Stage, sorta like how the Sil80 battle happened before Ryousuke in the anime.

In which year Initial D storyline starts?

In the manga in the 95s and in the anime in the 98 or 99s

But some cars didnīt exist in those years. Like the GT86 or the Blue Impreza from bunta ( in the manga) ( Manga in the 95s and Impreza 99s)

Initial D has a floating timeline, which allows for newer cars to be introduced

Wow I finally finished the Initial D journey (Watched Fifth Stage and Final in one sitting). Initial D had always been close to me as it was the anime which gave me confidence to drive again after an accident when I was 17. I remember the days of going to Kazza to download each episode individually until fourth stage when I became up to date. That was 2004! The year I joined IDW. When Fourth Stage came to an end I dropped of the forum a bit. Twelve years later I finished Final Stage. Reliving the tension and the adrenaline pumping as the sick eurobeat tracks play was really a trip down memory lane.

The fact that Takumi and Keisuke will turn pro was a given, but I was not expecting the 86's 4AGE engine will blow to secure the final victory. Ryousuke's back story with Hojo was spectacular and seeing all the racers come to root for Takumi was how I envisioned the final battle to be.. Gotta love Mako and Sayuki!

LOL Shinji though was an incredible final opponent but the character name and personality reminds me of another Shinji that also wimps out tongue.gif FINALLY romance working in Initial D Mika and Takumi have great chemistry!

Dream being the D, LOL I loved the very end when the credits roll and Ryousuke is scoping an amateur race like a shifty talent scout. tongue.gif

Well done to Shigeno sensei and the whole production team who finished this masterpiece!

Yeah, it was a great series! I need to re-watch 5th stage and final stage cause I only watched them once.

I kept wishing they would come out in English but they didn't...oh well.

My last hooray for the series will be the 3rd movie that I'm waiting to be subbed.

Till then I'll watch 5th stage and final stage smile.gif

Anyways, one of the best anime's for me personally and will always keep re watching it in the future years!

So I just watched the Final Stage and OMG! I haven't watched Initial D in 8 years and just rewatched the series. Heck, when I stopped, I don't think third stage was out yet. But, OMG! The feels from the ending. I'm slightly depressed that it's over.

And I still don't get what Takumi is doing in the end credits besides still delivering tofu. Anyone want to explain that to me?

Takumi also will interested on joining grass root track race, he got advised from one of this driver wearing green suit which is keiichi tsuchiya (famous racer in japan real life) and takumi looks so interested probably he want to touch up he skills,besides that this ae86 will be repaired but not using for racing, just delivering tofu since now days also a lot of modern car maybe its time for him to change.


P/s: probably soon there will come out new Initial D: rally comic since one of the creator says. happy.gif

Considering Initial D barely turned a profit for Funi, I wouldn't get my hopes up so early if I were you.
Unless there's a huge boost in DVD sales or streaming numbers (official streams, not kisswhatever) for what they already have, they're probably not going to consider it.
