Okay. I watched the anime before I read the manga. When I read the manga, I couldn't help but feel a bit pissed off. The anime totally butchered the manga! The anime is good, but compared to the manga, it is just so...lame. They never put half of what is in the manga. I can't believe they ended the anime with those lame-ass OVA episodes, which were totally stanky, BTW. I also saw the live action movie, and was deeply upset to find that KT Takahashi wasn't even mentioned, and the outfits of The Emperors..... Shocked They looked like they belonged in a Guns N Roses music video! Also, the part of Chapman To...wasn't he, like, playing the part of Iggy AND Cole? They mixed up Iggy and Cole, and came up with some half-assed version of a lame-O Cole. Sickening! Well, talk to me, peoples. I wanna know if there are going to be any more Initial D anime episodes.

Later

There is.

Inital D 3rd stage is a movie or an OVA, while 4th Stage is the next actual series and is (or was, I've no idea. I've avoiding reading about 4th stage for fear of spoilers) screening in japan.

There's also Extra Stage, but that's just the older battles re-animated better.

No word yet on anybody in the US aquiring the rights, so it'll be ages until we get 'em here in Australia.

lol. Iggy and Cole. It's funny that in this case, it's the manga (at least, the English version) that is the butchered one.
