PWN3D newb Initial D question

tokyopop website not responding, and i cant find this info so i figured id refer to the all omnipotent OT for answers:

my question is two fold:

1) there are STAGES, VOLUMES, and BATTLES. from what i understand, a VOLUME and BATTLE are the same thing. and there are ? volumes in one stage. is this correct? and how many volumes/battles are in a stage? how many stages are there?

2) when i go to amazon.com or anywhere else to browse for DVDs, they only have up to VOLUME/BATTLE 10. im assuming this is STAGE 1? but ive heard people talking about having the STAGE 4 VOLUME 13 or something similar, the one with the impreza battle? where is that? where can i buy these DVDs?

im so confused

I think it's like this:

Stages 1 and 2 are episodes 1-26

Then Initial D Movie (Special Stage [3?])

Stage 4 is the new episodes currently airing in Japan at the rate of 2 every 2 months, currently at Ep 12. Not yet on DVD but can be d/l'ed as torrents.

Silly n00b!

www.downloadanime.org and other torrent sites will help you...

TokyoPop owns the rights to the earlier Stages, and is releasing them on DVD. For the rest, you need to get out on the internets and search a bit

There are 4 Stages. Stage 1 and 2 are whole seasons, stage 3 is a movie (pretty cool) and stage 4 is the new season that's not completely out yet.

DownloadAnime.org will get you a lot of the bits you need, but you're going to have to do some legwork. Google anime torrents to find more.

I'm stealthy like that.

You'll pretty much have to do some google footwork, unless someone knows who's got torrents up.

If you haven't torrented before, you'll need to learn that first Pretty easy... get a bittorrent client, find a torrent, click.

www.live-evil.org put out some good subs for stage 4, finding the rest may be tricky.

Indeed, a search for "initial d torrent" yields things like this:

You sure? If that's the case than I haven't seen Stage 2 at all, but I don't think that's right.

stage 1: first 26 episodes
stage 2: next 13 episodes
extra stage: an OVA of the sileighty girls having battles
battle stage: an OVA of all the battles in stages 1 and 2 but w/ upgraded graphics..not worth buying
stage 3: the movie
stage 4: the episodes playing on air now..14 episodes

now tokyopop who is the official us distributor releases a couple episodes at a time and I think calls them battle...whatever..
