did the link work fine kyon?

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.

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

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

Six years watching fake trailers and parodies, since I was in high school, now it's for real!

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.

The first episode is hilarious. I love it.

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

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

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).

Spoilers:

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.

OH THANK GOODNESS I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED THAT! Also, when did Iketani sound so freaking annoying? I used to be fine with his voice and then suddenly BAM! He sounds like nails across a chalkboard to me.

Okay... but I just said it's impossible for it to be 720p.

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).
