I hate opening threads or I'd have done it long ago.
Great episode, but kinda scary thing is that the next episode is not announced.
Mako is really hot in 2013 graphics :D

Thats what ive heard as well, the subbing group i follow on facebook also seems to have confirmed it. No surprises though since i dont think shinji vs takumi race has even finished in the manga, doubt they will let the anime overtake the manga. Looks like we gotta wait awhile til we see sixth stage?

Maybe they'll make Sixth Stage as an OVA. The manga is done.

I kind of want Initial D to end as Final Stage and not Sixth Stage or Extra or Battle or any of that. Only because this anime was so awesome, and then returning years later for the 5th Stage, it should just end on a good note. A great anime doesn't have to be 300+ episodes.
Personally I'd rather just want more, than to get more and it sucks. Just keep me wanting.

Even if it had 300+ episodes, I'd still watch it. Unlike Naruto, it's long but there are like no filler episodes at all and none of them are just stare offs. About five episodes of Naruto is one fight, while around 2-3 in Initial D is already a complete up + downhill race.

I get the impression that shinji is not an ordinary driver with his phycodelic abilities to be able to ascertain anything that is going on the racing field with just a mear glance. That guy kind of freakes me out. Deffinitly not ordinary and by not ordinary, i don't mean in the sence that he's their highest lvl driver but over all, we may have seen the birth of a new legend folks :P


He may even become a series regular following the remaining of the story, ill have to read the manga, i have got to see what this guy is capable of.

I have a prediction, but since they both look very identical, i wonder of takumi shinji are brothers and their dad is both bunto, that would be fcking sweet!

So I came across a thread/post discussing the manga where NSX vs FD had concluded, dated April 2012. So the battle between Shinji and Takumi has been going on over a year........

So wait Episode 14 is the last episode for Initial D 5th Stage....wow, that's a bit of a shock and not only that the manga is about to end soon.

I honestly thought it would go for longer since they're trying to conquer all of Japan.

Pretty sad that only glimpse we saw of takumi/shinji was the beginning of their race. No advice, no talking, no interaction. Was pretty sad about that man.

The worse season so far. A LOT of speaking and the fact they waited 7 years to leave it without an ending. 7/10

Shinji listen to mako saying any girl likes a man who knows their stuff then he enters on hype mode.

I'm glad to see it wasn't only me who thought they talk too much. It was bothersome. They hardly showed any of the actual racing.

I agree with the talking, not enough racing. If they were going to add so much dialogue, they should have worked harder on the animations. Still images with recycled mouth movements isn't going to cut it- I couldn't feel any emotion from the characters, and the corny "big eye, open mouth" reaction to everything was stupid the first time I saw it, and it didn't grow on me.
It feels like a bunch of old friends got together and just punched this season out for shits and giggles. There are quite a few useless plot elements that were added, and that ending was horrendous. They gave the last two episodes to a supporting character and his boring, uneventful race... eh it just didn't feel as polished as the previous seasons.

6/10

Umm, the DVds for the latest series came out 1 month after airing. The Japanese aren't like the American film industry. The show it and then get it out there on DVD/Blu-ray quickly.

The race was great. I could feel the excitement on that battle.

I agree about too much talking and less racing. Still great thought. Sucks they gave us a darn cliffhanger.

I agree that the constant taking takes away from the races but in this season there was a lot of development for the Takeshi bros so 8/10 for me :)

Worst season imo. Character designs got a complete downgrade, most of the races were short and lackluster compared to the previous seasons and don't even get me started on the whole shinigami fiasco. Just made me want to rewatch the previous stages instead : /

you must all be a bunch of white folks that don't get eastern culture much, i'm not japanese and even i get it, yes it could of had a little less talking but if all you idiots want is all action then go watch some american garbage like "fast and furious"

9/10 in quality for FIFTH STAGE, drama was amazing and the message is touching, unlike western movies that all about sluts waving a scarf to count down a bunch of jocks revving their engine that have ZERO clue about driving physics and just put their foot on the gas and hit the nos if they are losing. It hit all the desires spots of an anime, in teaching you to believe in yourself, follow your dreams, and never giving up

thats westerners for you, excepting poofs into society where its ok for two men to be together two women to be together, but the biggest problem you have is an AGE GAP?? whats wrong with shinji liking older women? great anime and i am so excited for the cliff hanger to come, i want an initial D sixth stage...unlike american tv shows, sequels in anime don't lose quality :)

Wow, talk about a cliffhanger! I was really thinking we'd see Takumi's race in this season, but no :( That didn't feel like the end at all.

This season had a lot of ups and downs for me but I think I liked the middle episodes best (6~9). I will remember that crazy race in the fog every time I find myself driving in fog now. Loved the setting of Hakone for this season too, since Kanagawa is close to my heart.

Oh boy that cliffhanger ending of this season! Really impressive, looking really forward to the next and final season! But I do got to say that this was one of the better season combining backstory/romance with greatly intense races!

All an in all a great season, let's see what's next!

This episode made me beyond mad you don't just pull a new takumi and try to capture the magic of the first two seasons fuck that annoying shit. shitty OST and talking completely ruined Keisuke's final uphill race. 5/10

They really did split Takumi's race into next season...

At the very least Keisuke's race got exciting once the pace picked up.

6/10 (above average)
Not as good as 4th stage.
