I'm confused by the numbering system of the Initial D DVDs.

What are the relative meanings of "Stages," "Battles," and "Volumes"?

How many full-length Initial D movies are there, both animated and live-action?

Are the boxed sets DVDs identical to the non-boxed sets DVDs (i.e. are the DVDs in boxed set V.1-5 the same as if you bought V.1-5 DVDs separately?

What's the most efficient way to collect 'em all? Are there boxed sets covering the whole series?

Is it still in production?

Is there a web site about the show that answers my questions?

Thanks!

Bill

A friend burned for me:

- 2nd Stage (3 discs)
- 3rd Stage (2 discs)

Can anyone here burn me copies of what I'm missing?

Which episode has a race with a Roadster?

Thanks,

Bill

"The Initial D character Natsuki Mogi practiced compensated dating in the first stage; Tokyopop edited this for the North American release by having her patron translated as her uncle."

yes, the tokyo pop version made a lot ofchanges, removing all the original eurobeat music, changing a lot of the dubbing/ subbing meanings...etc.
If you are watching the USA version of Initial D you are FIRED. That's all I have to say.

Iggy?! That's just wrong!

:p

There's only one Iggy (Iggy Pop, the masochistic godfather of punk rock who's now ironically set for life with the royalties from the Disney/Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines' TV commercials terminally repeating his song about drugs and sodomy recorded with David Bowie "Lust For Life," http://www.slate.com/id/2120229 and http://blog.lib.umn.edu/duver001/nwn/022596.html):

The live action movie does a good job of summing up the first 2 stages. Anyone else seen it?
The live action movie is a damn insult. I suggest no one see it because it's retarded.

The live action movie is pretty good, at least, for the cars and driving. The character homologations I did not like. I did not like that they made 2 characters out of 3 i.e. - Iketani, Itsuki, and the manager at the gas station (Yuiishi?) Also, the Dad was portrayed quite differently. Pretty cool movie nonetheless, too bad I don't understand Japanese and I haven't watched it with subtitles :?

As far as seasons after the movies, I haven't been able to find more. The last episode I watched was right before the battle with magic hand and magic foot or whatever they were called...GT-R and S2K.

It is interesting how they dealt with that. Supposedly, Mogi's situation is quite common over there.
