I'll be the first to review this, which brings me to my first point. Initial D is not as popular among people on the mal community (probably everyone outside of japan) as it used to be. I can't be sure how popular it is in japan now, but the subs for the final stage took a very long time to come out. As of now it has a little over 2,000 members. Initial D never was extremely popular (I'm generally speaking for the mal community, Its seems to be more popular in Japan) but as it has been airing through about 15 or so years read more

Taking place where fifth stage leaves off, Takumi will have the his final race as a street racer. His opponent this time is like no other opponent he has ever faced. He is now racing a fellow AE86 Trueno model driver, Inui Shinji. Not only that, he happens to be younger than Takumi who usually tends to be the youngest in his social circle. Also, the difference between their cars is that Takumi is the hatchback model while Shinji has the sedan model. And as the race progresses, we will also learn about Shinji and his background and many characters return to see if Project read more

*SPOILER-FREE Short and Cute ^_^ Review for the Initial D series*

Fifth Stage left me a little demotivated and I had to force myself to begin Final Stage. And Thank God! If you love the Initial D series, please sit through Fifth Stage just to get to this one.

+++This race is unlike any other I've seen and that's all I will say about it! Just when Fifth season made me forget about Takumi, he entered from a corner read more

Initial D Final Stage: It has been 16 years since the Initial D series first graced us with its underground racing excitement. However, there comes a time when things have to end, and unfortunately that time is now for Initial D. Final Stage shows the conclusion of Initial D with the battle between our protagonist Fujiwara, Takumi, and the “The Strongest Enemy” Inui, Shinji. Was it worth the wait? Well let’s see…

Final Stage’s storyline looks at the last battle in Kanagawa to determine if Project D can capture every time attack record in Japan. The final person that stands in their way is read more
