I'm not sure if this has been posted or asked before and I'm sorry if it has. But because I didn't see the answer to me question on the search results I am here !

Since I got into Initial D over the summer I had a lot of free time to burn. So after I finished watching all the way up to the end of Stage 4. I got mad at the cliff hanger they left us with and started reading the manga from the begining. I just finisihed reading chapter 591 and I'm waiting for the new batch of translated scans.

SPOILER


Once again I'm sorry if this has been asked before but its been a burning question that I've been dying to ask!

I believe it's similar to "aura." It is just a representation or a device to show how good a driver is. I guess Shigeno somehow has to come up with something new to prevent the series from becoming too dull. However, I share the same sentiment with the most here, that the magical "wing" really is something that doesn't belong in Initial D. If this keeps up, I am afraid it might turn into another Dragon Ball...

If it's just for aesthetic purposes, then I am all for it. I suppose I really don't want Initial D to turn into a show with magical symbols and lost its realistic touch.

What bothers me the most is that I can't find translations of the manga past chapter 591 and the manga is already past 600+ chapters. I was just wondering if any one here knows why exactly there were the mysterious kids at a touge race.

Also I remember that Ryosuke or someone from Team Zero mentioned 'him' then the fog came down during that match. I don't remember which chapter number it was exactly but they also never explained that.

I'm just looking for answers to what happened before, during, and after Project D vs. Team Zero because that part of the story was super confusing to me. pinch2.gif

I know what you mean, clubcarisma has been really slack lately.

I don't blame them though. They lead lives outside of scanning and translating manga, it must be tough balancing the two.

I admire the scanlators who use their free time to scan and translate all this manga for the enjoyment of other people. We should be thankful that we even got up to chapter 591. happy.gif

Couldn't find anything? That thread covers EVERY chapter from 468 onward. You need to look harder.

I didn't say I couldn't find anything, of course I found posts concerning this but they didn't really answer my question.

It's good to have discussion outside of a central thread from time to time. It's extremely hard to sort through that many posts for a side topic. I think someone with better insights of Japanese culture or Shigeno's work can shred more lights on the topic at hand.

In my opinion, it is just for show and imaginary.

I don't think that we have a logic explanation for those wings yet. Only Shin can see them, I think that this proves his extraordinary attitude to see strong drivers during a race.

So does that mean that Shin is a character that is going to pop up again in the later chapters? If that is the case then I'm starting to wonder why these youngsters are showing up to illegal races to watch... pinch2.gif

Ohohoh! But he's so young! I'm now looking forward to all these new chapters that are in the works of being translated. Now is this speculation or have you actually read up to that point in the series Perry?

Hopefully, HOPEFULLY, Shigeno ends the manga after that. There would be no excuse after that for Avex to not announce Fifth Stage. smile.gif

I read the Chinese version of Vol.43, check here: http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=26...dpost&p=1216638

It really is getting quite interesting. I too hope this will put an end to Project D, not necessarily Initial D. I want to see Takumi and Keisuke go head to head on a pro circuit later on in the series!!! w00t2.gif

I think it's been hinting that the series is going to come to a close now. I mean, Ryosuke's year is up and he has to get back to college to finish his work. I hope Shuichi Shigeno ties up the lose ends and gives all the characters promising futures!

If the 5th Stage ends like that I would be able to live in peace. You don't know how many other anime/manga series I've seen with terrible endings. I want to be able to say that Initial D one of my favorite anime/manga series with the best possible ending ever.

I don't see Takumi going pro. It's just too serious for his personality.

Keisuke has already stated that he wants to go that route, so that makes sense.

I hope Ryosuke does become a doctor. I think it's great that he wants to save lives... It's so deep!

As for Takumi, I really hope he... SPOILERS!

And if Keisuke goes pro what will become of Kenta? Will he become his personal cheerleader? laugh.gif

Very true. I can easily see him just settling down with Mika. Well, by "settling down" I don't neccesarily mean quitting racing, but rather just not going pro.

Problem with Mika? She has EXACTLY the same face as Takumi, just with different hair.

You are all now watching Initial D, where Takumi is dating HIMSELF.

I really like Mika's personality, like Takumi she puts a lot of effort into what she does. And that's what I like about her.

I never really noticed how they look alike, wow now that's just weird.

As for Kyoko, my impression of her is that she is a crazy stalker but I digress...
