Initial D Fifth stage
Title: Initial D fifth stage
Based on the manga: Initial D
prequel: Initial D fourth stage
Buckle up for the restart of the storied street/drift racing franchise because 6 years after the last installment, Initial D is at the starting line once again with its fifth season. Shigeno Shuichi has kept the manga running this entire time so there’s plenty of races left in the tank for Fujiwara Takumi and his legendary tofu delivery vehicle/drift machine, a Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-APEX (AE86). He’ll be joined by his former rival Takahashi Keisuke in his Mazda RX-7 (FD3S) as they team up and try to conquer touge (mountain pass) races all over Japan and hopefully gain the skills to move on from the streets and onto the track.
Opening: move - Raise Up
Ending: CLUTCHO - Flyleaf
Note: the Fifth stage should cover chapter 424 to chapter 514 of the manga
first impression: It's here, it's finally here, it's real mudabishes been waiting for that one since years, it was supposed to be released at 2008 but it was just a troll Now it's back and after watching the first episode i can say it's as exciting as before. There is nothing better than initial D to get you hooked on your screen. Now i'm already waiting for the next episode unfortunately they're planning to release only 2 episodes per months

Saw the raw yesterday
These are ova's ? or how many episodes will there be?
they're not OVA, don't know yet how many episodes they're planning to do
Having only watched the movie, it took me some time to get used to the art and to the story itself, but once I did it I was able to enjoy this episode to the fullest!
The imposters were hilarious! I especially liked the confrontation with the real ones.
The girl…I liked her. I can’t wait for her and Takumi to meet again.
Keisuke…I don’t remember him from the movie, but I like him. I especially liked what he said to the imposters, his lines were priceless!
Looking forward to episode 2!
P.S. Loved the OP! M.O.V.E. + Initial D = awesomeness!
you didn't watch the fourth stage destiny? so you started the Fifth stage without knowing much of the project D
don't do that, the fourth stage is a MUST WATCH
Well - watch the 1st stage - but you're short on time as it is...
true, one can't enjoy the ambiance if he didn't watch from the first stage. but the minimum requirement for this season is to know about the Project D thus she needs to watch the fourth stage
How many episodes?Quote:
4th stage have 24 episodes but its the best season so far
