Do you want to just talk about how TP ruined the manga or how they ruined the show. They have ruined the show much more then the manga. Though in the manga they have cut out some vital scenes. Why they did that, I dont know, they are just on crack 24/7. I havent read the manga from TP but I have heard enough and I read either scanelations or the Chinese version. Im not sure of every cut out scene, but I know one would kind of be a spoiler. TP changed the animations of the show trying to make it look new and better actually making in worse in my opinion. They have changed the music and battle scenes. I told feel like talking about how much TP has ruined Initial D. I didnt really have a problem with TP until they touch Initial D.

Well, I've gone through the first 19 episodes of Stage 1 now...Watching the Japanese with english subs version, chines dubbed with english subs (and of course originally watching the TP english dubbed version as well).

I can see now why you guys are rather disappointed with how things were done with ID. The original Japanese with English sub (it's purest form) is just an 'edgier' and more intense show...It's a real shame to see it watered down in the other incarnations.

I'll have to see if I can still cancel my book order, then I'll be stopping by jackadeal and seeing about picking up some DVDs!...They sell the Japanese with english sub versions right?

Thanks.

Is TP a japanese company? A half-half? Or pure north american?

If the first or second, then they have done what no japanese company has done, make people hate them for their crappy quality.

That deserves a prize right there.

if you ask me, the company is 100% american... even tho the founder went to school at tokyo u. he's an american businessman with an american management team. the only japanese part of TP would probably be the translators, who are most likely freelance...

woo! sorry there, i'm just a little po'd at them (at least till they release the full original anime/manga)

just curious but are the subs in this bundle pack, the subs that everyone are saying is god awful.

I remember when we had that drought and the subs for eps 5 and 6 were coming out late and one person said it already on dvd or something like that but the subs were really bad. Are these dvd's the same batch or is it some outside source with better subbing.

just curious

For the DVDs, the subtitles in ep.1-2 were really bad. It's a little bit better in ep.3-4. And the subtitles in ep.5-6 were alright. It seems they have improved. Let's hope the subtitles in the DVDs will only get better and better.

These DVDs are all from HongKong by the way. If you have some money to burn, you can get the Japanese Oversea version of the DVDs. Which is $59.95 per DVD (2 episodes). But I don't think those have English subtitles. Go check it out on http://www.yesasia.com

Hi I'm new here I've read through the faq's but there's still some stuff that I want to know. These might be on the forum somewhere but I'm just going to ask please forgive me if I'm asking lame questions.

Ok for starters I started watching ID about a month ago I picked up all of the volumes currently released by TP (after reading through the FAQ's I'm kinda pissed that I did) My biggest question is where can I get legal copies of the REAL anime I don't mind reading subtitles so thats not a concern, I've read that TP hacked apart the show (even in the "classic" version that I thought was supposed to be straight from TV) but I don't want to just DL it from a p2p (also because I'm on dial up it would take months). Is it even posible to get copies of Initial D that are 1) True unedited direct from Japan versions 2) I want to make sure they are not bootlegs because I would like to know that the money I'm spending supports the shows creators and not just some guy with a DVD burner. I read in these faq's that jackadeal sells bootlegs is this true or not? If it is true please don't suggest them.

Another question is, is Initial D complete? because I read in the faq's that the last race (I think it was against the fc3s) is unfinished. I assume that means that the last episode aired was a cliffhanger in the middle of a race but I guess it could mean that the series just leaves it that way. I thought I had seen a "complete" colection on ebay that had series 1,2,3, the extra stage, battle stage, and series 4 but if it's not over how could that be possible?

My last question is a little easier to answer (I think) and that is, is Mogi (Tak (Takumi)'s GF) a prostitue? I read somewhere that she has a pimp (who's that?) and that Tak (Takumi) doesn't know that she is or something along those lines. Is that something that is left out of the TP dvd's cause I've seen up through episode 24 and I swear there's nothing like that mention.

I'm sorry this is so long but I had a lot of questions that I would like to get answers to, any info you have (especially about how to get uneditied legal copies of the show, besides learning Japanese and flying to Japan) would really be apreciated. thanks for your time

1st: you could buy the originals via the sponsors above, or you could go ebay for used copies. for d/l via bittorent, you could search at IDW torrents sections or you could visit suprnova.org.

2nd: at per now, the anime/manga are not completed yet.

3rd: mogi is more like a social escort, not a prostitute, but it's believed she had traded sexual services with 'papa', the one who drives the benz. the 'pimp' u mentioned was 'papa' son, who had boasted of having mogi going to bed with him (when takumi overheard it and punched the guy). so he's not a pimp, he acted like a pimp.


hope it helps. if u need more information, the search function would be very useful for you. if not, try reading backwards of the topics discussed in the general discussion section wink2.gif

Hey thanks for the info wink2.gif. I guess that explains somethings about the benz driving guy (all along I thought it was her dad, which would have been kinda gross consitering the comments he made to her, but even more disgusting now lol). And just for clarification before I go out and re buy basically all of stage 1. I read that there are "sexual type" scenes that were removed from the TP edition. Is that true for the "classic" version as well because it's suposed to be he straight from tv version?

In other words are they actual scenes that were cut or is it just like language. for example when Mogi first gets in the car with her "papa" in the english he comments on her school outfit, but in the subtitled he makes a more sexual remark and she responds about him being horney as always. I ask because I've bought up through vol. 8 so I have almost 200 bucks in the series and if I buy the imports I want to make sure I'm buying something that has actual pieces of the anime in it that were taken out and not just buying a Japanese version minus a dubbed option. Do you get what I'm saying?

btw is the guy in the locker room that takumi punches in the face the same guy that drives the benz? If so that's one super rich high school kid lol.

sorry, i've not touched/seen any episode from TP cuz it's crap.

in fact, there's no sexual scenes in the anime. not sure on the manga, but i believe it's not in it as well, cuz it's vaguely shown cuz it wasn't the real point to be focused. nor there were sexual remarks and mogi or 'papa' acted sexually deprived. they acted like they were sort of related like father and daughter.

in fact, if your's TP version, the names would be americanised eg> takumi = Tak (Takumi)?

i mentioned in my previous post, the guy that was acting like a pimp, who had an informal race with takumi in the snow, and was punched by takumi, was the "papa" 's son. this is only reflected in the manga (as i've read in the topic discussed earlier), not pointed out in the anime though.
but ya, he's a super rich kid, cuz papa's rich too. unsure.gif

i strongly suggest you take some time reading up the topics/ dl the torrents to see the english subbed raws. it'll benefit you cuz it's the original copy (and takumi deliver tofu, not PIZZA), rather to see some TP production smile.gif

Ok then I was thinking that there were sceens that were deleted beacuse TP didn't think Americans could handle sex in anime rolleyes.gif. In the discs I have the "classic" is supposed to be the straight from tv version, and I assume it really is, the "tricked out" version is the one your talking about where the names are changed and the dialog is changed (but he doesn't deliver pizza even though I had read that it was thier original plan) someday I will get a hold of a few episodes from japan and see how much difference there is between them and the "classic" version I have. Basically my biggest thing is if my "classic" is the real thing then I'll just watch that. I admit the "americanized" is lame, the first time I watched the "classic" it was quite different.

I guess my point is if I have the real version on the disc I will just watch it, and ignore that it has the american version on it, but if there's MORE on the japanese thats not even on the "classic" that TP put on the disc then I'll get the ones from Japan. any way enough about this, thanks for all the info you've given me, and for making clear who Mogi, and the benz driver really were wink2.gif

Please refer to this topic for the Initial D DVDs released by TokyoPop.

http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=1665



There is no sexual scenes in the anime as mentioned previously by spinnee. However, there are explicit nude scene in the manga. I believe BiBi posted up some scans of that earlier in the year. Try searching for the keyword phrase "Papa, Mogi", you should find something.


If you really want the authentic DVDs from Japan, you have to go to www.YesAsia.com . They are really pricey. ; )

blink.gif I'm confused, whoever said Takumi delivered Pizza?

The classic version of TP's stuff seems to be left alone. The dubbed version looks like it was made in the hopes of having in aired on american TV.
