I wish the later Initial D Stages didn’t focus so much on the Takahashi brothers.

The fun is in seeing Takumi getting into another difficult situation and trying to figure it out on his own.

It just isn’t as hype to see him doing what Ryousuke says or just watching Keisuke race.

Fifth Stage is great so far, but it suffers from the problem of being about Project D.

Hell yeah.

How’ve you ranked the stages so far?
For me, it’s 1>5>3>2>4

I may need to rewatch them again cause it’s been a decade since I…

Ironically I was introduced to Initial D via the 4th Stage. After watching the first three (especially the first), I was like, man what kind of crap is this!?

Oh lord, lol

First Stage a best, will always be a best.

It’s literally the perfect Initial D experience.

I mean, none of the stages are bad, which is good.

Oh! Also, they’re making a new movie that’s releasing this month. It’s apparently going to summarize First Stage and have new animation, new voice actors (Why replace people that have represented these characters for so long?), and a new soundtrack (No Eurobeat, instead JRock). Feelsbad.

I may need to rewatch them again cause it’s been a decade since I last watched this but I think I prefer the 1st and 2nd compared to the last 2

First was great, second just felt a bit dry to me, third felt similar to the second but I liked it since it was shorter, fourth was just so damned long and didn’t really have any fun tricks or gimmicks in the races. All of the races felt the same. Takumi would always use the ghost trick where he turns his headlights off. I lost my shit when they played “rage your dream” at the end of fourth, though. Fifth feels a lot like a return to the glory days of First, though.

Yeah, Fifth Stage aired in 2012 and Final Stage aired in 2014. Hell, Final Stage ended in June. I think Fourth finished in ‘08?

seagullshroom,

seagullshroom worth mentioning that Fifth Stage and Final Stage aren’t licensed in America while First through Fourth are and are also on Netflix.

seagullshroom,
what? WHAT? “FIFTH” STAGE!? THERES A FIFTH ONE!?

Yeah.

Takes place a week after the ending of Fourth Stage, it’s 14 episodes long and it’s amazing.

There’s also a Final Stage that’s four episodes long that takes place after it.

seagullshroom,

Someone could probably try and say something deep like “After what happened with Natsuki, Takumi could only see girls as looking like Natsuki!” but that just sounds so stupid and like an excuse for shitty designs.

initial d,

Speaking of how every girl in this series looks like Natsuki, here’s a random character from an earlier episode in Fourth Stage, I think.

Every fucking girl is Natsuki.

initial d,

I like how, in Initial D Fifth Stage, Mika looks just like Natsuki and acts pretty similarly too.

"You’re free next weekend? Let’s go to the beach!"

It literally feels like the author was like, “Shit, we need Natsuki back. Fuck it, let’s just clone her and hope no one questions it.”

I tried watching Sharknado a while back but I didn’t like it.

I loved Birdemic, by the way.

I think my problem with Sharknado is that it intentionally tried way too hard to be bad and seemed to have a much higher production value. Unlike Birdemic, which felt like James Nguyen was genuinely trying to make a good movie, he just had no idea what the fuck he was doing (and still doesn’t, if Birdemic 2 is any good indication).

There’s a certain charm to a man setting out to make a movie with the little money he has versus an entire fucking TV station funding a movie that’s trying to be bad. I mean, I think in part it might have to do with Birdemic’s lower quality video camera and the audio problems (Like, they’ll dub over some scenes and it’s really obvious or you’ll just hear a ton of weird audio distortion).

onepunch man,

I’m supposed to believe that this woman isn’t Natsuki Mogi.

What the fuck, guys?

It seems like drawing the full JojoBrigade is a rite of passage into the fandom, so of course I gave it a shot. The images are large-ish, so they look a lot better if you view them in full! ⊂(`・ω∩´)
