Yes, it is a virus. Don't download it if you know what's good for you! And while you're at it don't bother downloading any other raws of subs for Fifth Stage--they might be viruses too! troll.gif

Posted by: hackgrid Nov 4 2012, 07:32 AM
Great, thanks! smile.gif

Just uncheck the "download with your awesome download accelerator" thingy, this is what gets it recognized as "virus/spyware/adware" whatever.

The video file itself is fine.

Posted by: Splitter Nov 4 2012, 07:40 AM
The LQ RAW is still pretty good quality as long as you dont go full screen, now we wait for subs.

The quality really isnt that bad, it looks fine fullscreen on a 42". Fine means enjoyable without having to puke though wink2.gif

One good thing about having an early poor quality version is that Fansubbers can get to work on the translation part early, then they just need to slap on the subs when the HD raw comes out. happy.gif Thanks for the upload!

Live-Evil are still alive, but they have not commented on Fifth Stage, so I would not expect them to be subbing it. SAGE has said they will "tentatively" be subbing Fifth Stage, so we'll see what happens with them.

As of right now, there is no news on Fifth Stage subs, so please, people, stop asking about it.

The link works fine, but this might just be the same quality as the LQ raw we already have, since the file size is the same.

Posted by: RIT_ninja Nov 4 2012, 09:34 AM
Thanks so much! Being able to watch this episode really made my day.
Reminds me how exciting it was back in high school to watch 4th stage the first time while waiting monthly for each 2 episodes

Literally came when Gas Gas Gas was played

Just streamed EP.01 (cant wait to watch it again with Eng Sub) xD

Posted by: W.A.R Nov 4 2012, 11:09 AM
Im pretty sure it is being subbed as we speak we just have to wait until it comes out

Posted by: THE_HONDA_CG2 Nov 4 2012, 11:15 AM
This was well worth the wait for die hard fans. I'm kinda glad I got into Initial D two summers ago so I didn't have to suffer though the agonizing six year wait for it. But hey, we are here now and we are doing this. To everyone who is working their hardest to upload the raws and to the subgroups translating this; know that you have gratitude from the bottom of my heart. Keep it up guys! smile.gif

I'm pretty doubtful of that. If someone is already lined up to do subbing, all they're doing with this episode is translating the script so they just have to paste the translated lines when they get the HD version to sub. I'd bet that we won't see subs for this until the HD versions air on the 9th, and then we'll have to wait another day or so for those subbed versions to be uploaded.

Patience, people. We may love Initial D, but to everyone else, Fifth Stage isn't any more special than any other anime being aired this season, so it's not going to be uploaded any quicker. wink2.gif

THIS VOICE OF REASON HAS A POINT BUT I REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT! Argh, fine. I guess I can wait. I hope that means that they're really good subs then.

Posted by: Flipzide Nov 4 2012, 11:52 AM
The first episode is hilarious. I love it.

Now I'm back to that vicious cycle of waiting for new episodes every month.

Posted by: AwesomeDominik Nov 4 2012, 11:54 AM
Actually, someone seems to have uploaded some 720p RAWS:

nyaa.eu/?page=torrentinfo&tid=370496

(Hope it's okay to post that link here)

Haven't checked it myself yet because I already got the LQ version but if it's legit then we might see some subs soonish (few days)

Moderator note:
As a warning to anyone who actually thinks this was broadcast in 720p, you're sorely mistaken - this file is an upscale. At the most, it can only be TV-quality, so while the file is in HD-size, it is NOT HD-quality. Blame the dumbass who uploaded it.

The quality of this one is great and really 720p! smile.gif

Even though they spelled the "Initial" wrong dry.gif

Posted by: Meteor Nov 4 2012, 12:18 PM
Watched the first episode a while ago.

Non-Spoilers:
.The OP is awesome
.The ED is awesome
.I wouldn't call the (2D) animation crazy good, but it is decent and the artwork is definitely a lot better than before. The 3DCG looks good and there are some moments where it's quite different from Fourth Stage's look. Backgrounds - both 2D and 3DCG - have improved. Color, shading and character designs too. The animation for the cars isn't the most realistic right now, but it doesn't look fake either.
.In short: Fifth Stage looks awesome
.Takumi's a redhead now?
.Ryousuke's gone with black hair this time.
.They changed the name of the gas station for some reason.
.As usual: In between medical studies and Project D stuff, Ryousuke somehow finds the time to put together another fancy GUI as well as painstakingly construct another accurately-shaped 3D model of a mountain road (elevation changes and all).

Yes and no. Yes, there's no problem posting possibly better versions, and no, because that's an obvious upscale. This episode was not broadcast in HD, so there can not be any version in 720p, it's just impossible. I've edited your post to warn anyone who sees it and thinks to download it, just so you know.

Ah, okay. The download was very slow when I tried it so I didn't go ahead and download it (simply because I do not understand japanese anyway)

Sad to hear it's not real HD, guess we have to wait a bit longer then. Not like those few days are going to kill us, seeing as we already waited 6 years. smile.gif

It's a torrent link. The resolution is light years better than anything I've seen so far. I'm watching it right now. If it's not 720p then I don't know what it would be called. It looks incredible.

Kazuki Yao is getting old, it's only normal for his voice to get raspier as he ages (He's 53 right now and voicing a 22 year old). Same with Shin-Ichiro Miki (he sounded really weird in the opening scene).

Animaxis airs in HD and the raw on Nyaa is 720p (doesn't look like an upscale), I'm surprised the upload here has no Animaxis logo in the bottom right corner, if you don't mind me asking, what was the source?

You are an idiot. First off, if you actually check the channel listings you'd see that the November 4th broadcast was only on an SD channel. There was no HD broadcast. The HD broadcast is not until the 9th, and it will be on PPV.

Second, it's clearly an upscale. Have you even been watching HD content since, I dunno, 2007? We're no longer in the era of washed-out colors and interlacing problems on scrolling text like .hack//ROOTS was in '06. Yet...imagine that! The raw on Nyaa has washed-out colors and interlacing problems! I WONDER WHY THAT IS, HMMMMMMMM...

Shit-Raws is right. I deleted it within the first few seconds.

What I can say for sure is that it was not anywhere near 720p, because 720p would be an HD broadcast, and half the reason this episode was broadcast was because it was not to be in HD because it's a free airing on an SD channel.

I think the drawing style is not as good as 4th stage particularly the drawing of the drawing cheek bones, Kenji looks old in some scenes and ryosuke does not look as cool as before. Keisuke looks different but still gives off almost the same personality with his looks and I think takumi is also almost the same except for being a redhead. The animation did improve alot if you watch how the car moves, you could feel the the grip of the tires.

Yeah, it's pretty clearly 480p upscaled. The easiest way to tell is looking at the pixelated gradients in the blacks. Also the fact that my TV is exactly 720p native resolution and it doesn't fill the pixels properly and bleeds into other pixels. XD

Posted by: Gunma's 34 Nov 5 2012, 12:38 AM
@Perry, just check my edited post.

Something I noticed...

5th Stage animation/rendering seems to be a mix of 4th Stage and 2nd stage altogether. For what reasons?
1. The CG renders seem no different from 4th stage but gave it a bit more of a color contrast to the better end; so that we'd notice not just the cars during the CGI but also the background; which was something neglected/ totally darkened in 4th stage which gave me the pale feeling at some episodes (most especially episode 1 with SSR)
2. The Design on the characters; and again the color contrast, how bright they came out is something reminiscent to me of 2nd stage but it at least didn't come out like the characters are superimposed on a mid 2d-3d render of the background; it did fall somewhere between like 2nd stage's opening - Evo 4 VS R32 (not the race but prior to that) in terms of quality.

Posted by: Meteor Nov 5 2012, 01:57 AM
^Yeah, one big difference between Fifth Stage and Fourth Stage is the overall colouring. In Fourth Stage, pretty much everything was a shade of blue during nighttime scenes, whereas Fifth Stage's nighttime scenes have way more colour to them and look better for it. They've also raised the overall detail in the CG backgrounds and their textures this time around and the change in colouring really makes it show.

As shown in the opening scene, the lighting's improved too. There're also some subtle changes to the shading of the cars; and it seems they've also redone the textures/effects for some of the taillights.

QUOTE (Gunma's 34)
They should not have played the opening in x2 fast forward, huh? It was kind of obvious to me that it was on fast forward

I was wondering if anyone else had noticed that. The cars were sometimes moving impossibly fast whenever a corner was involved. And there were two S-turn drifts where a car even seemed to be speeding-up during the drift. I wonder if the OP and the actual episode had entirely different CG animators at work.

(Great, both the quote and spoiler tags aren't working for me right now. I'm not the only one this has ever happened to either. Why do the tags stop working sometimes? EDIT: Now it works)

@Yauma9: At one point in the first scene of the episode there are a bunch of really quick gearshifts; and that's the scene Tessou was referring to.

@Tessou: In all honesty, that's interesting. What did you find terrible about the OP?

I've been reading the Manga online and its taking a fascinating twist which was clearly hinted at in the opening. From the manga it seems to be the final chapter of the Initial D saga, so if its two episodes a month for an undisclosed length of time/run the anime could be following the path of the source material.

2D animation way down, episode 2 levels.

3D animation up to stage three movie quality. There's also been some tweaking with the camera to make it more realistic/dynamic. The subtle shakes while following the AE85, and the scene when the Impreza is cornering look great. The backgrounds have more depth and details.

Agreed about the gas station name change, not necessary, but here in Jamaica gas stations change names regularly as the various companies buy/sell stations based on income.

My greatest fear is a Initial D II live action sequel, if 5th stage re-ignites the fever.

The 2D animation quality is higher than Fourth Stage, and almost as good as 3rd Stage (but you can't beat a movie budget...), but the 3D animation is probably the best ever. Fourth Stage was arguably better than Third Stage because of the advances in technology, although the backgrounds were darker and had less depth.

The opening's animation has the cars moving like they're weightless, though, which looks a little strange.

They only changed the name of the gas station to be closer to the real one (Esso). You really can't complain about that.

Posted by: Tessou Nov 5 2012, 03:00 PM
The animation itself is of higher quality than Fourth Stage. The designs (which I don't like very much) seem to be harking back to Second Stage a little.

SAGE does their releases in the soft subtitle format, that is to say an MKV container that contains both a video file and a subtitle file rather than hard subtitles which entails a video file with no way to get the .srt/.ssa out of it. or at least it was this way with their daily lives of high school boys and lupin releases, I'd assume they go with it for Fifth Stage as well..

The 2D animation quality is higher than Fourth Stage, and almost as good as 3rd Stage (but you can't beat a movie budget...), but the 3D animation is probably the best ever. Fourth Stage was arguably better than Third Stage because of the advances in technology, although the backgrounds were darker and had less depth.

The opening's animation has the cars moving like they're weightless, though, which looks a little strange.

They only changed the name of the gas station to be closer to the real one (Esso). You really can't complain about that.

The cars handled similar to the new intro during the God-Hand race. This is especially true during an S curve where they go through both in a single still camera shot and change direction consecutively without any apparent slowing whatsoever.

Not that anyone's gonna pay attention in this frenzy, but SAGE only releases softsub files. Since they only release softsubbed files and out of the two existing raws only one is in an MKV-friendly format, I'm gonna guess they're using the Shit-Raws encode. Which is...well, shit.

But hey, you guys don't care, so tevs. Personally I'm gonna wait for the real broadcast on the 9th to happen before grabbing subs. At least then we'll have raws that look good and kept the OP/ED intact. derp.gif

No, there's a 1080i transport stream available on Share (a Japanese P2P program). Which should be a hilarious troll file since a.) the episode was on an SD channel, not an HD channel and b.) it's a TS which means it's GIGS of download for what will surely be junk data.

Troll files show up all the time on Share. Move along.

This very same situation happened with Wangan Midnight, so don’t worry, raws will surface for the PPVs. On top of that, this time around the PPV channels are broadcasting in HD so we should have significantly better source material than Wangan Midnight or even the free broadcast of episode 1 (which was on an SD channel). If your only reason for dropping the project is a worry about raws…I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

Posted by: Tessou Nov 6 2012, 05:22 AM
There has not been an HD broadcast of ep1 yet, so any torrent claiming to be anything above SD quality is full of shit to some degree. Either it's a junk/virus file or it's been upscaled (which will look awful).

I know you're all impatient for HD and subs, but this is par for the course for this series. Trust me, good things come to those who wait. I'm right there with you on this one, but we all just have to sit tight and wait.

Posted by: Nomake Wan Nov 6 2012, 05:39 AM
Actually there's a much better raw up on Nyaa right now which I am in the process up uploading to our server. It's this one and includes the OP. It's still an upscale, but it has video filters used to minimize the artifacts and color blending.

It's not perfect--nothing will be until the 9th--but it's the best raw thusfar. I'm currently testing to see if Sage's subs will sync to it. I'm assuming they will with minimal effort.

EDIT: Upload's complete, it's in IDW's hands now.

I can't understand why people are complaining about video quality. We have brand new Initial D after so long, and people are calling it garbage? When I first watched first stage, it was fansubbed on vhs. And even that was good enough. I guess people have the right to complain if they want to, but I can't tell you how grateful I am to being able to watch fifth stage so quickly after it is released in japan, and even more grateful for everyone on this site who posts, and works so hard to bring us all this info, music, and videos so quickly.

It's not really worth it right now, especially since it's 460 MB and that'd be a pain to DDL. And I don't think anyone wants their account banned on Youtube lol...

If you can't torrent, better to wait until a better raw surfaces and they fix their source. Orrrr you can wait for me to get the proper timecodes to match their subs with the 'better' raw and try that, but it's still 460 MB...

I'll tell you what. If I can get Sage's subs to work with the better raw, I'll split it into 300MB pieces and sendspace it for you. I'm in a good mood. cool.gif

EDIT: @Keisuke42: Because on the 9th--and every month thereafter--we will have true HD raws. This episode on the 4th was a preview broadcast in SD.

You're on fire bro, no way of possibly thanking you enough if you can fit them with the better RAW.

Also, you seem to believe we can get raw's from Animax PPV even though Sagesubs seemed to say that they dont know anyone who does.

Back when I was downloading subbed episodes of Durarara!!, it was relatively small with very good quality - an MKV file with just 80-100mb per episode it was worth it; now I second notion Nomake Wan at the point where 460 for one episode is just too much; also given the fact that this is still the LQ raw vid.

I know we're going in circles here but CAN WE ALL JUST WAIT FOR NOV 9 TO KICK IN WITH THE HD AND THE DOUBLE EPISODES? Sheesh we're starting to sound constipated here. I swear if I hear another "where's the DL link to the HD Subbed of this episode" once more... who knows what I'll do.

Posted by: Nomake Wan Nov 6 2012, 06:59 AM
God people here are stupid. Now I remember why I gave up on this section years ago... sometimes it's just frustrating trudging through the crap.

Anyway, first things first. Sage doesn't know anyone who has Animax PPV. Was Sage around when Wangan Midnight was airing on Animax PPV? No. Did raws for that show up? Yes.

Was Sage around when Initial D 4th Stage was airing on Animax PPV? No. Did raws for that show up? Yes.

Are Sage the only people capping raws in Japan? No! Use your heads, people, I'm begging you! This isn't rocket science! Raws will show up one way or another. They won't be as fast as the preview--because PPV channels cost money, and because they have copy-protection on them--but they'll show up. I guarantee it. I'll donate $25 to IDW if raws don't show up within two weeks of November 9th, how's that? Now I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I'd like to see other people do the same.

Muret, the problem is that Sage's subs only properly synch with the file they created. Because they decided to create their own raw from scratch--by fusing multiple sources and re-encoding--their timecodes are not a match for any other raw. They do not work with the original FLV raw, nor do they work with the new, superior MP4 raw.

Splitter, see above. Because Sage's subs don't work I can't do it. Wait for Sage themselves to release a better version, then we'll talk. Until then it's all about patience.

Sage created their own raw from two completely different sources. Because of that the timecodes do not match up. The only way for me to make them work is to adjust the timecodes manually or--if I were lucky--find a stretch factor that would correct for the difference. Either way it's a ton of effort I'm really not in the mood to make.

Better to wait for Sage to do it themselves, whether it's a v2 to this better raw or waiting for HD raws after the 9th.

EDIT: Someone posted the Animax schedule and apparently this preview broadcast was on an HD channel. Back in September when it was announced the schedule was only an SD channel but that apparently changed at some point.

http://www.animax.co.jp/program/NN10001410/schedule1

So this latest raw probably was HD, from a 1080i TS. Will be interesting to see what happens on the 9th, I suppose.

I didn't know where to write this, but I hope I didn't make any mistake by writing it here...

This question is mostly for the people who are using multimedia hard drives for watching their movies and animes.
Ive got Lacie LaCinema Classic HD 2TB, and it doesn't have any problems with MKV file format.
But when I downloaded the release from SAGE (of course 5th Stage Act 1) I couldn't run it on it.
I've only got info that "This file format is not supported". And Ive got plenty of MKV movies that are working like a dream.

I heard that RAW that was used in this release was not so good. Maybe that's the reason?
Or some weird codec were used during making this episode.
I hope there will be some other releases which one I can run on my HDD, because watching on 50" TV instead of 15" monitor is a big difference (I know I can connect computer via HDMI, but that's not the point).

Sorry if this is in wrong topic, but I didn't find anything more "convenient" for this thread.

Spoiler tags will always be necessary, because there may be people who have not seen the latest (or ANY for that matter) episodes of Fifth Stage and look to threads like this for status updates.

Basically, if what you have to say concerns a plot point in Fifth Stage, spoiler-tag it. As a reminder, repeat offenders will get warns for posting spoilers outside spoiler tags.

Can I suggest to admins you make a seperate Fifth Stage Discussion thread that is spoiler friendly(annd pinned), its a bit silly that everyone needs to spoiler tag their comments not to mention I'm sure people dont want to get warnings or have their account flagged, everyones just excited smile.gif

I'll consider this idea. It's a little complicated to have different threads with different spoiler tag rules, but we'll look into and and maybe do something about it. Thanks for the feedback!

I modified the sage subs to fit the shit-raws release. Took about 15 min, including finding programs to extract and edit the subs.. and then 25 min watching the ep.. biggrin.gif
Enjoy!

And yes, the sage encode was crap.. lots of players have problems with it.. vlc wouldnt even show the picture.. (old version, might work with a newer one) and mpc-hc has lots of color glitches..

Thanks! worked good for me! happy.gif

Just to let you know, a .ts file appeared on Share (japanese p2p) with the OP intact, meaning Sage can re-do episode 1, so there'll probably be a v2. I have it on my drive, it's the usual 1080i. Maybe next time some people can wait before called other people idiots.

This very same situation happened with Wangan Midnight, so don’t worry, raws will surface for the PPVs. On top of that, this time around the PPV channels are broadcasting in HD so we should have significantly better source material than Wangan Midnight or even the free broadcast of episode 1 (which was on an SD channel). If your only reason for dropping the project is a worry about raws…I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

I've lost all hope for the newcomers now who don't understand what we're trying to say, @kyonpalm. I'll be back in 2 days to post here once the Nov9 release is... released.

I didn't know where to write this, but I hope I didn't make any mistake by writing it here...

This question is mostly for the people who are using multimedia hard drives for watching their movies and animes.
Ive got Lacie LaCinema Classic HD 2TB, and it doesn't have any problems with MKV file format.
But when I downloaded the release from SAGE (of course 5th Stage Act 1) I couldn't run it on it.
I've only got info that "This file format is not supported". And Ive got plenty of MKV movies that are working like a dream.

I heard that RAW that was used in this release was not so good. Maybe that's the reason?
Or some weird codec were used during making this episode.
I hope there will be some other releases which one I can run on my HDD, because watching on 50" TV instead of 15" monitor is a big difference (I know I can connect computer via HDMI, but that's not the point).

Sorry if this is in wrong topic, but I didn't find anything more "convenient" for this thread.

MKV is not a format, it is a container. The reason your setup told you it was unsupported was because Sage encodes their video in 10-bit h.264 which your system does not support.

Update your shit!! Both your VLC and MPC-HC are WAY outdated. There is nothing wrong with Sage's encode (except using bad source)--your players cannot play 10-bit h.264!! Why do people do this.

Please install the latest VLC and MPC before making claims about quality.

Also why use the Shit-Raws raw when a superior one exists?

I will try to fix that. It's because the subs are from SAGE and they have multiple layers in their subtitles so it doesn't really work well with YouTube's closed captioning.

So this latest raw probably was HD, from a 1080i TS. Will be interesting to see what happens on the 9th, I suppose.

Since the 'raw' you downloaded was the youtube-reencoded version of the raw I grabbed from Nyaatorrents, no, there's no SRT for you. It was explained earlier in the thread that the existing subtitles from Sage are not timed correctly for this raw and as such are not compatible.

Wait for Sage to release a v2, then grab Deadfish's v2. Deadfish is the name of the group that re-encodes Anime into device-friendly HD format. happy.gif

All the cynicism and holier than thou bullshit I've been seeing in this thread needs to stop. As in, right now.

I'm getting really tired of seeing bickering about who is right and who is wrong. All the facts anybody needs to know about the new series have been posted in easy-to-find locations in this section of the forum. Instead of telling a (typically new) member that they are an ignorant jackass, simply point them in the right direction and move on. There is no seniority within IDW's membership. Advanced members are not given leeway to be assholes to newbies and/or regular members.

I have directed the mod team on curbing this sudden trend of the old guard looking down their noses at the new folks. It needs. To stop. Now.
