I'm a fan of Initial D. Watched all three stages. I heard from one of my frens that the forth stage is out. Is it the entire forth stage or part of it only. As my fren told me tat there are a total of 7 vols. in the entire set of DVD and only the first vol. is released. The rest are released later. I got this info from here http://avexmode.jp/animation/initial/initial.html
I've heard rumours of an Initial D live action movie with involvement in some shape or form by Jackie Chan. I vaguely remember hearing he would produce and direct it, but I can't find anything but various internet movie rumour sites to back this up.
Jackie Chan's 'Thunderbolt' was a great east\west action movie, so atleast it has been proven that he knows something about car movies.
I haven't seen 4th stage yet, but the rest of the Initial D series is great. It would be very cool if it could get a decent transfer to live action.
only english versions is half of the first stage...it just hit the US market offically like a couple months back...i think 2 of the DVD's are out with 4 eps. a piece...might wanna check out bestbuy or netflix or something.
