While this is growing more and more tedious as the months go by, we're nowhere near Hitman Reborn status, where a single arc lasted 146 chapters, more than the rest of the arcs combined. :| Hell, look at Bleach. They're still in Hueco Mondo, and they've been there since 2006!

Yeah, it's slow, but it could be so much worse. At least Shigeno doesn't pull a BS move like adding in dozens of subplots and filler chapters, and he totally could. Next week we might get a three-month treatment of The Misadventures of Iketani and Kenji: Hawaiian Style!.

Actually, that might be an interesting manga.

Not to get off-topic, but damn, I didn't know they're still in Hueco Mundo.

Eh, you're right, but it looks like the new arc will take probably three more years before anything significant occurs.

I could quote a lot of manga series' here. It's a common thing for most manga titles to hit a notorious rut and piss of the fanbase. Hopefully whatever comes after this race makes up for the year of crap we had to wade through.

This race has lasted a year and change. A race of that type would normally last in the range of five minutes. A YEAR.

One Piece seems to an exception to that... smile.gif

Btw, is it still true that Bleach doesn't have much in the way of background art?

Bleach is still the same in backgrounds...just a little more of the buildings right now because of Karakura Town.

You know, after this incredibly long race, you can guarantee that Shigeno is going to give us a drama piece between Mika and Takumi that, while being devoid of action or even romance (because Takumi is a block of wood), will still be more interesting.

Hell, their date could take 20 chapters and I'd be more riveted, because character development in Initial D is about as rare as finding $100 on the street.

Finally the saga ends. Now we can actually get some plot progression and remind the readership that Takumi and Keisuke are still alive!

So with this race, Ryosuke retires from street racing. Also,Rin may have been was the reason Ryosuke started street racing? Interesting...

Well at least now we can move on to Sidewinder.

So far, I'm disappointed with the outcome of this race. My disappointment doesn't come from the lack of deaths in this race, but the lack of background on the relationship of Ryosuke, Kaori,and Rin. I feel like Shigeno could've fleshed that out a little more during the race. To me, it felt rushed.

Hopefully Shigeno will give more details in the coming chapters.

Thanks for the scans and translations, Fuji_tak. I liked too much the end of this race, the end was really unexpected, old "D" and Ryousuke and Shinigami conversation was exciting. Ryousuke was kind of Fujiwara to Hojo Rin ? Ryousuke may have seen himself in Fujiwara when invited to be part of Project D, Omoshiroi.

I'm just glad that everything ended peacefully. Looks like Shigeno doesn't have the guts to kill off one of his main characters that everyone love so much... wub.gif

I don't think fujitak really implied that Ryosuke and Ikeda were aces in the past. Sounds like simile talk to me...
If any character have died, Initial D would have become really sad. But this is as dramatic as it could get for Ryosuke's finale. I do hope in 5th stage anime, they can do a better job with the storyline between Kaori, Rin, and Ryosuke

it's not said in the title this week if it was vol 604 "end" (part1).
I hope there will be another part and that explain clearly all mystery points (Ryosuke/kaori affairs) about this love triangle. And next SHINN CAR !!!

Curiously, This race's end seems to have coincided with the jump in ID's popularity over here.

We're one step closer to finding out what it is Shin drives then.

Shinigami, Ikeda and Ryosuke are old acquaintances. Shinigami seems to be the leader in past on Kanagawa pass and Ryosuke master in toge.
Come on Shinn with you secret project car. I bet that his car woulln't be more impressive than NSX R of his teamate.
Ryosuke saved his senpaï.
Let's forget about this love triangle story and focus on next battles :
-NSX R vs. RX7FD
-AE86 vs. ????
Come on Shinn-san kuruma : GCV8 or hachiroku with TRD body kit, carbon bonnet and big black wing.

It's time for the new generation to surpass the old.
In this chapter Ryosuke face in front of his senpai was totally like takumi.
And Ryosuke actions was as foolish and risky as Takumi.
