Is there 2 different versions of battle stage 1? The one here doesn't have the movie battle between takumi and ryouske. Also in this one the order is a bit different after the rain battle. This one has the battle at the end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8SneYF-TaY

No its by Soldats and its like 40 minutes.

It's missing the GTR vs fd3s and the final fc vs ae86 battle.

The order is weird also. It goes fc vs ae86 then rain battle then snow battle then back to emporer battle.

Thanks for the share. I can finally see how this ends biggrin.gif I fell behind when fifth stage came along because I couldn't find any subs. And I had since lost the CDs I burnt off the original four stages its good to relive the excitement again!

Try downloading the manga from here: nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=841944
I downloaded it from there some time ago and I had no problems.

The torrent should have all of the volumes and chapters but some of those are with English translation names.

I hope that this will help!

Hello! I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, but I'll be getting to the point anyway:

I'm looking for somebody who's willing to share a original VOB file from the Initial D First Stage TokyoPop DVDs. The reason being is that the current downloadable versions are not very well deinterlaced. For instance, the one shared in this thread has good quality, but animated parts have a noticeable amount of ghosting:

user posted image
Image size reduced, original size: 720 x 549. Click here to view the image in its original dimension.


Ghosting is caused by using the wrong deinterlacing algorithm, since it is possible to recover the original 24 fps animation, with no blending between frames.

On the other side are the CGI parts, which are natively rendered at 30 or 60 fps -- I can't exactly tell because I haven't seen the DVD source, but if as I suspect, the CGI animations are also interlaced, I could get them back into full 60 fps, because there exists another deinterlacing method for that.

However, there are other problems in the version shared here, as this 'pixellated' scene and the dot crawl noise:

Image size reduced, original size: 720 x 549. Click here to view the image in its original dimension.


user posted image
Image size reduced, original size: 720 x 549. Click here to view the image in its original dimension.


But these defects were introduced in Funimation's production process and the rippers are not to blame for them.

At this point I remind that the TokyoPop DVDs are said to have better video quality, and thus if somebody could share a sample I could try making a better quality release of the series.

So, if you want to help, please PM me! user posted image

I always thought the ghosting was just a natural part of the original animation haha laugh.gif derp.gif ~

Even if whatever 3D animation program the studio used to render the original CGI was done at 30 fps let alone 60 fps ~ it was probably all compressed into whatever anime motion picture FPS standard Japan had at that time for TV broadcast, laser discs, and DVD's ...

So I'd advise not just the TokyoPop DVD's (as I've heard they got better quality too) BUT the very first instance of Initial D for Digital ie. → try & find the earliest instance of Initial D on laser disc and/or DVD's ... via someone in Japan that can go to those hole in the wall rental or Mandarake~like Book-Off stores that could have the original Jap pressings! ohmy.gif

Good luck tho' clover.gif I've always just watched the Funi subs & never noticed anything haha ~ XD

As I recall, the ghosting is still just as bad in the DVDs themselves. If no one else steps to the plate, I might rip one of mine, just to see for sure.

That's normal. When converting animation (24 fps) to NTSC standard (30 fps), some frames are repeated or mixed. In playback, this results in ghosting. But it's totally soft ghosting, it can be reversed (if, and only if the video is still interlaced -- that's why I need a original VOB file). It's unusual to find unremovable ghosting in NTSC releases. That would mean the production team was very inexpert. More info here.

Obscure standards are not frequent in the world of TV broadcasting. In fact, for I know the standard is 30 fps interlaced, it could contain a 60 fps animation.

That's what all of us would like to do XD but since it might be a difficult search I prefer trying with what we already have in first place.
