QUOTE
しげの秀一さんの人気マンガ『頭文字D』が、アニメ映画化されることになった。2014年夏に、新劇場版『頭文字D』として公開される。
18年間にわたった原作の連載が7月29日発売の「週刊ヤングマガジン」(講談社)で最終回を迎える。これに合わせた新展開だ。さらにアニメシリーズは、関東最終戦となる『Final Stage』に突入する。原作、そしてアニメと『頭文字D』は怒涛のフィナーレとなる。

発表によれば、新劇場版『頭文字D』はこれまでのシリーズとは違う、誰も見たことのない新しい「頭文字D」を目指す。詳細は明らかにされていないが、7月26日から7月29日まで渋谷ヒカリエ9階で開催される「ヤングマガジン大アート原画展2013」の『頭文字D』コーナーで、先行映像を公開する。イベント限定の初公開となる。
この先行映像で新たな情報が発表される可能性が強い、ファンにとっては目が離せない。

さらにアニメシリーズ『頭文字[イニシャル]D Final Stage』では、原作最後のバトルがアニメ化される。ここで描かれるのは、関東最終戦となる神奈川決戦である。主人公・藤原拓海はハチロクで、同じくハチロクを駆る乾信司と対決をする。壮絶なダウンヒルバトルとなる。
こちらも展開メディアやリリース時期は未発表だ。今後のさらなる情報発表を持つことになる。

『頭文字D』は、藤原拓海が豆腐屋を営む父親の愛車ハチロクに乗り、公道最速を目指すマンガだ。関東の走り屋たちを相手にダウンヒルバトルを繰り広げる。
1995年に「週刊ヤングマガジン」(講談社)で連載され、マンガファンだけでなく、自動車ファンなども巻き込み大人気となった。単行本累計発行部数4800万部を超える。これまでにもたびたびアニメ化され、2005年には台湾の人気俳優ジョイ・チョウが主演する劇場映画も製作された。国際的にも人気の高い作品だ。それだけに、大きな盛り上がりを見せる本作の劇場版にも期待がかかる。

Official Final Stage anime...'nuff said

Shūichi Shigeno's Initial D car-racing manga is inspiring an anime film, Shin Gekijō-ban Initial D (New Initial D the Movie), next summer. The manga's final battles will also be adapted into a new anime series called Final Stage. The "Young Magazine Dai Art Genga-ten 2013" event, which will run at Tokyo's Shibuya Hikarie complex starting July 26, will screen early footage from the film.

The manga follows Takumi Fujiwara, a high school boy with a natural talent for driving, in his racing pursuits on the public highways. The manga debuted in 1995, and Kodansha published the 46th book volume in January. The manga inspired several television anime series (including the Fifth Stage that just ran last year), a live-action film, several original video anime projects, and a successful game line.

This year's 34th issue Kodansha's Young Magazine is revealing on Monday that Shūichi Shigeno will end the manga in the following issue on July 29. The manga has been running for 18 years in the magazine, and Shigeno had revealed in March that he was heading toward the manga's finale.

This movie summing up the series is, for the most part, as I predicted in a recent post describing the likely conclusions to the series:

QUOTE (kyonpalm @ Jul 18 2013, 01:57 PM)
Alternatively, the OVA could be a big summary movie of everything in the entire series, and then ending will include the end of the Shinji race and the final chapter from the manga.

So I was pretty much right about that.

One thing that has me kind of confused is this "Final Stage" series. It says it will feature "the manga's final battles", so does that mean it will be a Battle Stage-type series, or what? Whatever the case, I can only hope it does justice to whatever material it works with. There could be hope for correcting the mess that was Fifth Stage... maybe.

In the end, I have to wonder how much any of this even matters, since the manga is going to get such in incomprehensibly shitty ending to begin with.

I hope it's more like that scene in Third Stage where Iketani and the gang were thinking about Takumi's battles during that first summer. That way it doesn't use up too much of the movie time. Just shows the highlights of each of the races throughout 5th Stage.

And maybe they'll be nice to us and include a Keisuke vs. Takumi race at the end of the movie. Kinda like how Third Stage included that short Ryosuke vs. Takumi race. It's pretty much the only optional race they could include, since a race against Bunta is out of the question. Unless they make Bunta show up in yet another new car. lol

I am pretty sure the movie will have some anime-only fillers. It's just a matter of if it'll be done tastefully. I hope Shigeno will give some advice to the production team and hopefully they redeem themselves this time. Please, make this good!!

Edit: Summer 2014... You know what, I think they are going to pull another 8-6 Day. Watch, I BET it's going to be 2014.8.6!! w00t2.gif

And then we have to wait until the next 8-6 day for the DVD/BD release.

Im so excited for this biggrin.gif

I think itll have a flashback to the early days of Takumi, skilling doing his delivery runs and do a final sum up for the fans. Because clearly Shūichi Shigeno realized, that we are grateful for his continuation with the series and wants to provide us with a great memory, before we all start rewatching the complete 5stages for the nth time.

What the LONGEST anime with a theatrical release that you've seen? I hope it's long so we cover the last Kanagawa race PLUS stuff not covered in the manga (but still canon stuff that's made with Shigeno's approval)

It won't be. When they film the Live Action in Japan back in 2004~2005, everybody knew. Photos were leaked left and right. Now it's 2013, the moment they start to set up the movie set, the photos will be on the Internet within minutes. laugh2.gif

I'm curious as to if they will add anything else to the ending, like more interaction with Shinji after the race, Takumi spending more time with Itsuki, Iketani and Kenji before the final scene, Takumi speaking with Bunta about the fate of the 86, or maybe a final race (as has been mentioned previously) between Takumi and Keisuke. Either way, I hope they really fill in some of the blanks and give Initial D the send off it deserves.

I've been with this series almost all of my life and it kind of saddens me that the series is finally ending D:. But I'm super stoked!!!!!!!! Even though 5th stage wasn't very good, I hope they redeem themselves with this one, especially with it being the final stage.

Where are people getting this 'Live Action' and 'PPV' nonsense from?

It's an animated film.

It's coming out in theaters.

Then it'll come out on DVD.

Considering none of Fifth Stage was released on BD, it's questionable whether or not it will.

Facts, eat them.

Is it just the animated film, or is there another TV series as well? Source in the OP says the movie will wrap up Initial D while ANN says that will be done in another TV series.
