Initial D Fifth Stage?

Any information leading to another season of Initial D?
I'm currently starting on Fourth, and have heard something about a live action movie...but is there any info on a Fifth Stage being released any time soon?

I also feel 10 episodes for Fourth Stage is way too short
So was Second Stage...

i wouldn't wait...

there was a big gap between the release of stage 3 and the release of stage 4... i expect sometime in 2007/2008.. assuming that tthey decide to continue with making the anime and/or manga...


Oh, and Stage 4 is 14 episdoes, not 10. there's still the 86T vs Cappu and the 86L vs FD race to finish... and Itsuki's love problems to go though....

EDIT: The live action movie isn't canon as it's made by a Chinese consoritum with chinese actors. As far as i can see, they'll pull the basic storyline and characters from first stage and make a new story to appeal to the Chinese public. there's also that Dori Dori isn't working on it....

It will depend on where the fourth stage ends at. The reason why there is such a huge gap between third stage's release date and the fourth is because the anime caught up with the manga, and the manga is very slow(one anime ep of Initial D covers about 4 chapters of the manga). Until enough manga chapters gets serialized to have enough content for another season, there won't be a fifth stage.

Dunno if anyone still cares

If you guys didn't already know, the 4th Stage is 24 episodes long, so if you haven't watched them, go get 'em!

Fifth Season?

As far as I can tell they need to tie up some loose ends in the story. I know this thread hasnt been used since 2006 but as of October 2008 there still is no mention of Initial D: Fifth Stage.

Some of the things left unfinished:

Mako is still in love with Iketani and they haven't resolved it.

Ryosuke still hasn't disclosed to the Project D members what the D stands for.

Keisuke still hasn't had his rematch against Takumi.

What happens between Takumi and Mogi? Mogi goes to Tokyo after declaring her love to Takumi, Later he thinks about Mogi while Driving.. Yet there's no follow up.

These are just a few of the loose threads a Fifth Stage could clear up. I love this series and own every part of it so far. I would love to see a Fifth Stage.

There is an Extra stage that was aired on Sky PPV on the 3rd. On the ANN page, it looks like it's Mako and Iketani on the image, but I don't know any other information. The DVD release for Extra Stage 2 is in December.

if there is a fifth stage, i hope there's less of the Takumi Factor. Really, there's no reason for that hachiroku to win anymore. Not when the real one (Hot Version's Touge Monster AE86, driven by Tsuchiya) lost, repeatedly, to a 2ZZ-GE powered MR2 from Techno Pro Sports

If they do a 5th stage, I imagine Takumi will be racing with the Impreza
