As far as i have heard yes,
must have something to do with the solid fanbase.
I for one is insanely nuts about the story Anime - as well as the manga,
thus the more frustration that Shigeno only releases a volume ever two or thre months.
That is the main cause of the delay, simply that the makers do not have enough raw material to make the anime from.
And if you look at it this way it is quite a positive side,
sure it takes bloddy long but both the Manga and the anime is 100% quality all the way trough . . .

Allso heard that a new soundtrack is gonna be released soon,
can't wait

So I cant wait to see what car Takumi takes over the AE-86. In stage 4 Bunta says that Takumi is going to have to switch cars soon and he knows it....or something like that. So I am really curious on which car he goes with.

::If it has been revealed in the manga, please no spoilers.::

I think he is gonna stick with the 86 atleast for a couple eps more but if he does switch he will switch to the suba

In the anime it said he drove the impreza evry other day for deliveries when he was trying to find a weakness for the awd's.
It was funny how his dad beat the crap out him.lmao

Can't wait cuz when they finished stage 4 it was @least 2002. A bunch of tunerz came out around those years. Civics, celicas, tiburons and so on.
He is gonna hav a shitload of rivals with newer cars. The last new 1 in the anime was the R34 so my expectations r high

There seems to be people that are confused. There's the anime "Initial D Stage 1 - 4", and then there's the "Initial D Arcade Stage 1 - 4" (so far). There's also the manga, which I don't read because even though it's taunting with great illustrations, I wouldn't like spoiling the fun in the anime. "elitesasuke" mentioned that "So I can't wait to see what car Takumi takes over the AE86. In stage 4 Bunta says that Takumi is going to have to switch cars soon and he knows it....or something like that." What he referred to is that Takumi is going to have to alternate between the AE86 and the Impreza to make the deliveries. Remember that Bunta is training Takumi indirectly. I'm 90% sure that Takumi is going to stick with the AE86 all the way through the whole series. The reason, is because even though AE86's are limited to power in terms of the engine, nonetheless they can still be tuned to squeeze out 400 hp (horse power) figures, with a light body weight, combined with a good tuned suspension and with an exceptional driver like Takumi, the AE86 can become a deadly car to go up against. Takumi doesn't likes the idea of turbo charging his car, but supercharging his AE86 would be an ideal option for his taste because he likes that naturally aspirated instant response he gets from pressing on the accelerator. He can also add a wing to his AE86 to add more traction to the rear for faster cornering. Don't get me wrong, I'm not spoiling anything, I haven't read the manga, I'm also waiting for the anime stage 5 to come out.

I don't know much about the anime (it'll be cool to see Stage 5, though), but I did notice that the manga scanlations finally started moving again last month, after months and months without a single chapter. Things are certainly getting interesting.

Special Stage (ps2) mix between stage 2 and stage 3
Street Stage (psp) Same thing as Arcade Stage 3
Arcade Stage 4
Extreme Stage (ps3) same thing as Arcade Stage 4
Arcade Stage 5 (in development in japan)
There is a GBA game too
I think there is a DS game too.


The manga currently goes up to "Stage 5" if you want to call it.
The manga is currently i slow dev because Shuichi Shigeno has other things to do.

Cool Notes In the game Tokyo Extreme Racer Drift 2 if you name your profile Fujiwara Takumi Or Fujiwara Bunta It activates a cheat and you get extra cash to start out with.
In Grand Turismo 4 (GT4) there is a Toyota Trueno AE86 & a Toyota Trueno AE86 Shuichi Shigeno Version <--- Note Shuichi Shigeno is the creator of Initial D And if you buy this car in the used car dealer and Tune it with NA Tuning you actualy get the same motor used in the old Japanese Group A Touring & the same motor that is in Takumi's Trueno (4A-GE Special Modified Version that Dishes out 240 HP at 11,000 RPM)

If im missing anything please tell me.

Ok I guess I'll have faith - after all between 2nd stage and 4th stage there was a span of 5-6 years. And I'm not counting the OVAs and Movies, not because I didn't like them, I just preferred watching episodes after episodes (:

actually there is a game called "Initial D Arcade Stage 5"
But i dont think its supposed to be the actual stage 5 of the anime.
I just hope they start doing the anime coz i crave for the stage 5 for more than 3 years or something now...

i dont want to read the manga though, prefer anime^^

i'll just wait for the anime patiently and keep the hope up ;)

cheers
