Welcome again to the table. I was hoping that eventually you'd be able to type with proper spelling and grammar and have an adult discussion, but this apparently appears to be impossible. That's disappointing.

I believe I'm simply lowering everyone else's expectations so that they aren't disappointed when the movie comes out. If people go in with low expectations and it ends up being great, all the better! But if you think it's going to be the greatest Anime film ever made and it ends up being an extended episode of Fifth Stage... well, I think it goes without saying what happens then.

Feel free to add something of substance to the discussion, however. I'm all ears. smile.gif

Wow, this is exciting news. I agree with what others have said. Let's hold off on the champagne until we know who is producing the "final stage/movie". I hope it's someone else. Certainly it can't get worse...(or can it?)

I did want to clarify though in regards to the manga. This is it on July 29th? So Takumi vs. Shinji is the end? Really? That really bums me out. I thought for sure Shigeno would make it come full circle and have Takumi race Keisuke again. It would be the perfect ending. Even if they ended it like they did with Takumi vs. Ryosuke 2 on Akina and left it "open ended", even that would've been ok.

Talk about bittersweet...

...are there cam releases of movies in Japan too?

Generally, yes. That mostly depends on the movie's popularity, though.

You should be honest and say it depends heavily on the movie's popularity, orders of magnitude more heavily than overseas. The last camrips I saw of a film were of Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and Evangelion 3.0:Q...and the camrips hit very late into their respective theatrical releases. EVA Q for instance had a complete camrip a month or two before the bluray came out. Yikes!

So in general, assume that there will not be a camrip. Initial D is not Haruhi nor Evangelion.

That's what I was suggesting by saying "mostly". To be honest, I was waiting for you or someone else to confirm the suspicion, since I'm not so knowledgeable about camrips for anime movies outside my knowing that Eva and Haruhi were leaked.

It's not clear exactly what it is from the promotion. All it says is, "The Anime Series too will represent the last battle in 'Final Stage'!" It doesn't say that Final Stage is a series. If it had, the phrasing would have been like 'TVシリーズでラストバトルを描く'. However, that's not what the image says. All it says is that the last battle, now that it's been covered in the manga, will be covered by the Anime in 'Final Stage'.

There's no additional information. Anyone saying otherwise--whether it's the first post of this thread, the official thread in Announcements or ANN--can't read Japanese.

Ahh I see, cheers for clearing that up. I just hope they don't distort the ending like Capeta and so many other anime have.

Now that I have some time to calm down, I think the new movie or the Final Stage will focus on things happened right after the Takumi vs Shinji race. Remember the two-week time skip after the race in the manga? That could mean a lot of fillers, hopefully good fillers.

I'll be in Tokyo at the beginning of September next year, so provided it's showing in theaters at this time I might be able to catch it wink2.gif

Rarely there is a time where I want an anime adaptation to add more original stuff the original manga source didn't have, but in the case of Initial D, yeah I wish they would even if its unlikely.

I really hope it starts off right after the battle between Takumi and Shinji. I would like to see the part of the BBQ as well and see Keisuke upset about seeing the AWD happy.gif

As for the races I would just love to see Bunta race, If it doesn't happen oh well.

theatrical huh ? so meaning it might come in english dub once on dvd ? and also meaning it wont come out in america for a bit of a while after its release.

Well patience is a virtue i guess.

on another note what if they have a takumi vs keisuke battle in the movie ?
that'd be pretty awesome

My thoughts:

Final stage will focus on the last race. Clear some things up. Lot's of flash backs.

New Initial D The Movie: Hint is in the name! NEW!! So I assume this is the real ending, with some new material opening it up to something else. You know, an open ending. The Tak vs KT race!

Mere wishing and hoping on my part. I'm excited none-the-less!

What does new being in the title have to do with anything? All they're doing is differentiating it from Third Stage. ermm2.gif

Space Battleship Yamato the Movie 5: Final Yamato. 175 minutes. No I'm not just picking that off of wiki, I've seen every single Yamato series and film to date.

HOLEY MOLEY! That's so long for an (anime) movie!

I wish the Final Stage will include a real full-fledged, incredible footage of Taku-Shinji battle. And some missing scenes form the manga, too.

If the release is like Haruhi, we'll have to wait 10 months after the movie release. Which is quite long.

The more I think about this the more Final Stage MUST have a new race. If it's a theatrical release, then there must be a lot of money invested. The Takumi Shinji race + boring manga aftermath alone will not recoup that investment. People won't get in line to watch that.

There was one extra race added in Third Stage and it barely counted. If they follow suit in the new movie and add another race for some stupid reason, it will be just like the final race in Third Stage.

Final Stage is not the name of the movie. The announcement clearly differentiates between a new movie project and whatever 'Final Stage' is.

You'd be surprised what people will line up for.

Final Stage: Anime series (probably 2-part OVA, don't quote me on it) to wrap up the cliffhanger at the end of Fifth Stage.

Movie: No idea what the subject material will be, considering the manga is clearly at the very end.

Oh, so there's a lot more Initial D ahead of us than I thought. Final Stage = covers the rest of the manga. Like Tessou said, a 2 episode OAV seems likely, or maybe just a long OAV.

If the rest of the manga material will be featured in Final Stage OAV, then the unnamed theatrical movie MUST contain new races. Whether most Initial D lovers will accept the animated movie as canon remains to be seen. I dare to hope that the movie will be good, with Shigeno's stamp of approval and will become canon smile.gif

It would be incredibly funny to see Final Stage actually comprise solely of all the guys on the side of the road reminiscing about Takumi and Project D, and then the race actually starting... as the credits start rolling. Cue the "See you next time" text leading into the movie, which will finally show the race. troll.gif
