I hope it can get picked up here. The fact that the series went straight to Funi's budget line wasn't a good sign, but I know I'd love to see it licensed because it's pretty much the last leg of the series. Crossing my fingers.

Also, August 6 is Eight-six day. laugh2.gif

So who thinks they are going to retire the ae86 like they have been hinting on the manga

Maybe it's time?

Goddamn, Slade's back too?! Not even 24 hours since the announcement and already old members are returning. This is just as impressive as expected.

If whatever they announce is going to touch on Fifth Stage's story, it better be an anime series and not a movie. I'd hate to see the story get condensed.

Seeing what they did with Persona 4 over at AIC/Aniplex made me think that's a likely situation. sad.gif

If Fifth Stage were to become a movie then at least it will look good. I'm really hoping for a series though so the plot doesn't get smushed into an hour and a half. My real hope is that FUNimation acquires the rights to translate and release it here in the states. That's right, I liked the FUNimation dub.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! IT'S BACK!

Hopefully it won't be as bad as Fourth Stage. I say bad because Fourth Stage felt so rushed.

If 5th Stage was even a movie it should be a 3 or 4 part movie or something like that. At least all the people I got into fans of Initial D won't have to ask me when the next series will be animated anymore.

It will probably be another PPV series like Fourth Stage, although I hope it's a high-budget TV series.

There's easily enough material to make a two-season series now.

I mean, it's only been EIGHT YEARS lol.

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