I thought it was 04, for some reason.

It did start in 2004, just it ended in 2006. It ran from April 17, 2004 February 18, 2006.

Aagh, that's the second time I've read this today. Fourth Stage ended in 2006. That's six years.

SPOILER

It's been (over) eight years since the last new Initial D series based on the manga came out.

Plus, the only reason it lasted until 2006 was because they only played two episodes every two months month. That's four times slower than a normal TV series.

There has only been six years worth of new manga, but it's more than enough.

I wonder who they're going to cast for Mika...

So, any guesses yet? Fifth Stage to be same as Fourth Stage, same format and time frame. Starting on the 9 year anniversary of Fourth Stage?

I think they are hyping it up by releasing information prior to the actual confirmation. Boy I tell you, it is working. A lot of people are hyped up about this. Plus, they got the August 6, 8-6 day thing going. They are definitely going for the hype. I think they have already started animating the series last year. The biggest hint was the re-broadcast of Initial D by Animax HD starting last October.

I think they had insider info about the new project so they started re-broadcasting Initial D in an attempt to bring back some interests and prep the fans for the big announcement. Personally I think we'll see Fifth Stage as early as January or February 2013. They usually announce it six months in advanced of the actual air date. But that's only my speculation. smile.gif

I am very surprised at how fast this news is traveling across the Internet. It has only been one day since the release of that news and I believe the news has reached as many as 500,000 Initial D fans worldwide. However, the core fanbase for Initial D is much larger than that and many people still haven't been informed yet.

As soon as we get more details on 8.6.12, I plan to mass Email everyone on the forums, that's 12,000 members that I have to contact! We need to do our parts to inform those old Initial D fans! Together we can bring the passion we all had for Initial D back. cool.gif

I agree Perry. I hope this news and the anime help revive the Initial D community. I think this new anime is what everyone needs. brings back all the old and brings in new comers as well.

I had a thought that it might be a Movie like the Stage 3. Just to get 5th stage fired up beforehand.

Or maybe a prologue to hype up the new GT86. Unrelated story where Takumi ditched/upgraded his AE86 to a GT86. All we can do is wait and see. derp.gif

Its been too damn long crying2.gif

Man, I remember when I joined in 2006. The forum was full of activity. But as years went on, forum activity declined and it was sad. But now, the hype came back with this announcement. What will happen on 8/6/2012? If it's the fifth stage, the forums are gonna spring with life once again! I'm looking forward to that, a lot (even as a mod)!

I think he means that he's still looking forward to this, even from the perspective of a mod whose job would get a whole lot harder when tons of people flood the site. wink2.gif

Awwww, you don't consider banning a member "work"? sad.gif '

Oh well, I'm taking this way off topic. My bad. Sorry to those that wanted Initial D information and instead got a bunch of mod banter.
