Hey guys, just wondering, anybody know if this is an official release or a bootleg?

Like if i buy it, does the money go to Initial D, or is this some fake dvd release that is not official and no money goes to Initial D.

Well, first off, it's fake.

And second, nothing you buy on Ebay will give money to the creator unless they're selling it themselves.

Well, obviously they're just renaming "Final Stage". Still funny though.

The English on the back is surprisingly not horrible, but I like how the synopsis for Fifth Stage is really just a synopsis for the first episode.

To be fair, that's where the series goes downhill. (Pun not intended)

So basically, they're giving you a synopsis of the best part of the two seasons.

I don't think there was ever an official release of anything that is past Fourth Stage in regions outside of Japan. Yes?

The big obvious hint that its not an official release is the fact it has Malay subs in addition to the weird episode count.

I have no idea what that means but I will take it as a "No, they are not going to release it."

No yet Honda san, but a certain podcast has the magical ability of making licensors, release shows after they review it. Be it a good or a bad review; US anime companies value their opinion, and tend to release anime they've reviewed.

That review is in October.

Short answer: We're waiting for Funimation to release it.

God's gonna die before Funimation cracks a yawn.

Fifth Stage's probably gonna be released sometime circa Revelation: 6

I'd ask why anyone cares about buying localizations but in this case I look at the PIT BOX prices and... :8-y
