With Initial D Fourth Stage came to an end, many people were wondering when Fifth Stage would come out. To answer that, we must first understand that the anime is closely based on the manga. The manga was first introduced in 1995, the latest issue is Volume 32, which was released in November, 2005.
As we all saw, Fourth Stage was somewhat rushed, and as a result, Fourth Stage managed to cover 15 volumes in the manga (Vol.17 ~ 31). That's almost half of all of the storyline in Initial D !! One thing to note is that, Fourth Stage left off at Volume 31. Since then, there has only been one issue released, and that was Volume 32. According to reliable source, Volume 33 will be released this month. Even then, there will only be two volumes of storyline to make the anime. (Fifth Stage) Bottom line, we won't be watching Initial D Fifth Stage anytime soon, simply because there aren't enough storyline to fill it. The author of Initial D, Shigeno Shuichi, usually release a new volume every five to six months. Base on my personal speculations, we should see Initial D Fifth Stage releasing by late 2008 or early 2009. If you are interested in buying Initial D manga Vol.32 or Initial D manga in general, you can visit YesAsia.

User Gallery Section updated with two (2) new wallpapers, be sure to check them out. On the other hand, we've added a new section in Download Section. Live Stage is a Initial D World community effort in re-making some of the scenes featured in anime and manga. The idea is sort of like the Initial D Live Action movie, except that we are not producing any movie for the moment. Due to the lack of resources, there are many limitations on our parts. We will be doing our best in producing the highest quality work and present them to you. To get a taste of how Live Stage is like, we've provided a sample wallpaper at the Download Section. Feel free to tell us what you think of this idea.

Initial D Fourth Stage Vol.12 DVD has been released today in Japan. If you are interested in ordering a copy for $48.99, please visit YesAsia.com. This will be the last batch of Initial D merchandise for a long while unless avex plan on releasing more Initial D music albums. It's possible that avex might release another D Selection for Fourth Stage, but currently there are not enough evidence to support that notion. On the other hand, I've completely revamped the Picture Gallery. There will be specs of the cars alongside the images from now on and we will try our best to have these specs as accurate as possible. Special thanks to Chidoki for providing these technical information. Last but not least, please stop sending us E-Mails asking when will Initial D Fifth Stage come out. We do not know. We'll update this page as soon as we get some solid confirmations on that. Thank you.
