![text](https://pandulaju.com.my/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/initial-D-1.jpeg) This is a higher quality V2 set of encodes with many quality improvements over the older encodes for both video and audio. (List of improvement details can be found below screenshots) Encoded Stages 1-6 of the Initial D series into high quality h.264 format with English and Japanese audio, along with English Subtitles as well. Encoded the Initial D - Extra Stages 1 & 2 OVA into high quality h.264 format with English and Japanese audio, along with English Subtitles as well. Encoded the Initial D - Battle Stages 1-3 OVA into high quality h.264 format with Japanese audio, along with English Subtitles as well. Encoded the Initial D - Legend movies 1-3 into high quality h.264 format with English and Japanese audio, along with English Subtitles as well. Fifth Stage and Final Stage were never dubbed, so those only have Japanese audio with English subtitles. Extra Stage 2 was never dubbed, so it only has Japanese audio with English subtitles. The Battle Digests were never dubbed, so they only have Japanese audio with English subtitles. **SCREENSHOTS** FIRST STAGE https://i.imgur.com/o8q9mJJ.png https://i.imgur.com/A0I9S79.png https://i.imgur.com/w7xMazm.png https://i.imgur.com/lIDUJrY.png SECOND STAGE https://i.imgur.com/AXkNoOT.png https://i.imgur.com/ndf2v0O.png https://i.imgur.com/h4VRIzz.png THIRD STAGE https://i.imgur.com/ru1JJkh.png https://i.imgur.com/NnJ8ufg.png https://i.imgur.com/hm15yck.png https://i.imgur.com/WVvhLw5.png FOURTH STAGE https://i.imgur.com/l43DOR2.png https://i.imgur.com/qMl2JLm.png https://i.imgur.com/R5gzwPD.png https://i.imgur.com/PVjFLo8.png https://i.imgur.com/BtItSIM.png FIFTH STAGE https://i.imgur.com/vEudyC7.png https://i.imgur.com/R8Rq8UQ.png https://i.imgur.com/ytyfmJF.png FINAL STAGE https://i.imgur.com/1wxFW62.png https://i.imgur.com/bhQVl6N.png https://i.imgur.com/7HlR5Pv.png https://i.imgur.com/xtikIYB.png EXTRA STAGE None this time EXTRA STAGE 2 None this time BATTLE STAGE None this time BATTLE STAGE 2 None this time BATTLE STAGE 3 https://i.imgur.com/S807NbM.png https://i.imgur.com/lWDoiK4.png https://i.imgur.com/lkjhHo8.png https://i.imgur.com/U8yFKBz.png https://i.imgur.com/IwuCKWj.png FOURTH STAGE BATTLE DIGEST None this time NEW MOVIE BATTLE DIGEST https://i.imgur.com/iBmQBrz.png https://i.imgur.com/9bBUGrg.png https://i.imgur.com/R6U6Zud.png LEGEND MOVIES 1-3 https://i.imgur.com/9KF1Wj8.png https://i.imgur.com/jK5gCNI.png https://i.imgur.com/IvtOGPB.png https://i.imgur.com/78tKatE.png If you want updates on all of my plans, my other uploads that cannot be uploaded to nyaa, or to chat with me and others, feel free to join my discord community. https://discord.gg/UU9A7rBjcF =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= --------------- Improvements in the V2 release include these. --------------- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= (First Stage) Episodes 1-13 are about the same as last time, but with a little detail improvement in lines, and some other areas. They also have a more clean looking image. Episodes 14-26 have been improved a bit more than 1-13 detail wise. The lines are not smudged out, or thinned as much as last time. They also have a more clean looking image. I fixed the small amount of leftover combing artifacts in the chroma for the couple episodes that actually had any. I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of using the 2.0 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. I also added about 2.3K more video bitrate. (Second Stage) I improved this a lot compared to the old release. I put my old encodes to shame without a doubt. I fixed a lot of the combing/interlacing issues that caused smeared looking lines in the previous encodes. I went through frame by frame for hours, and gave them special treatment where possible. The lines and details for most of the video are very much improved as a result of this. You can see examples, and detailed information about it in my forum. I improved the overall detail, increased the overall image a little with less cropping, and reduced the artifacts much better. I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of using the 2.0 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. I also added about 2.3K more video bitrate. (Third Stage) I fixed the chroma issue that was in my older release. I was using a new filter for the first time, and didnt notice the side effects in chroma until about 2 projects later. I fixed those projects, and am now fixing my Initial D projects. I not only fixed the chroma issue I intended to fix and the reason for doing the V2, but I also improved the detail slightly more with a better made script. I synced and used the lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the audio source this time, instead of the Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. I also added about 2.5K more video bitrate. (Fourth Stage) I fixed the chroma issue that was in my older release. I was using a new filter for the first time, and didnt notice the side effects in chroma until about 2 projects later. I fixed those projects, and am now fixing my Initial D projects. I not only fixed the chroma issue I intended to fix and the reason for doing the V2, but I also reduced the artifacts/banding better, and toned down the oversharpness a bit. I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of the 2.0 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. I also added about 2K more video bitrate. (Fifth Stage) I fixed the chroma issue that was in my older release. I was using a new filter for the first time, and didnt notice the side effects in chroma until about 2 projects later. I fixed those projects, and am now fixing my Initial D projects. I not only fixed the chroma issue I intended to fix and the reason for doing the V2, but I also improved the detail slightly more with a better made script, reduced the artifacts/banding better, toned down the oversharpness a bit, and fixed the outer rim of the video around the border instead of cropping it off as much. I also raised the audio bitrate from 576kbps to 640kbps, and added about 2K more video bitrate. (Final Stage) I fixed the chroma issue that was in my older release. I was using a new filter for the first time, and didnt notice the side effects in chroma until about 2 projects later. I fixed those projects, and am now fixing my Initial D projects. I not only fixed the chroma issue I intended to fix and the reason for doing the V2, but I also improved the detail slightly more with a better made script, reduced the artifacts/banding better, and fixed the outer rim of the video that was a single pixel wide dark line and a line of haloing all the way around the border. I also raised the audio bitrate from 576kbps to 640kbps, and added about 2K more video bitrate. (Battle Stage) This is about the same as last time, but with a little detail improvement in lines, and some other areas. It also has a more clean looking image. I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of using the lossy 5.1 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. The voices, and music are better mixed in the audio channels of the Blu-Ray audio. I also added about 2.3K more video bitrate. I improved the positioning of my subtitles so they are not over top of the Japanese text anymore, and are easier to read. I also added an updated translation as an additional subtitle track. (Battle Stage 2) I not only fixed the chroma issue I intended to fix and the reason for doing the V2, but I also improved the detail slightly more with a better made script, reduced the artifacts/banding better, and toned down the oversharpness a bit. The audio is 640kbps instead of 576kbps like last time. I also added about 1.3K more video bitrate. (Extra Stage) This is about the same as last time, but with minor detail improvement from a better script. It is also very slightly more sharp. I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of using the lossy 2.0 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. I also added about 1.3K more video bitrate. I improved the positioning of my subtitles, and changed a couple lines styling. (Extra Stage 2) I not only fixed the chroma issue I intended to fix and the reason for doing the V2, but I also improved the detail slightly more with a better made script, reduced the artifacts/banding better, and toned down the oversharpness a bit. The audio is 640kbps instead of 576kbps like last time. I also added about 1.3K more video bitrate. I improved the positioning of my subtitles, and changed a couple lines styling.

I did like this way back in the day but now I don't like the style of animation any more.. But it is really nice of you to post this for the fans...
Any changes to the individual seasons releases? And was anything added to this batch specifically?

@Marche I added in the Battle Digests. I didn't give those their own upload as I was finishing them like I did everything else because they were the last piece of the complete bundle. I will be taking down the individual uploads I was putting up as I was getting them done one by one after this has had some time to seed. If you downloaded the individual torrent seasons as I was uploading them, they should all recheck/hash with this bundle except these 2 episodes. 1x19 - Set default audio track to proper one 2x04 - Fixed some leftover interlaced frames Just make sure the folder names match up.
This is awesome. Thanks for your efforts
Dam never seen this, is it that good to go through all this lol?
no, and it's bloated with lossless audio.

@Gnosis I really liked this series. It got less appealing at around Stage 4 and was still good, but the first 3 I think were great. If this ever got a proper 4K rescan or remaster for any of it, I would redo it all again lol. So I say yes it was good enough to go through all of that. @Interruptor 640Kpbs AAC 5.1 audio is not bloated lossless audio. You sound like a troll that just commented without even getting it, or has no idea what they are saying.
>I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of using the lossy 2.0 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. >I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of using the lossy 5.1 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. >I synced and used the 5.1 lossless audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray for the Japanese audio source this time, instead of the 2.0 Japanese audio from the DVD like last time. and I could go on. You clearly didn't just use AAC audio, otherwise, I would have no problem with that even though OPUS 192 kbps is more than good enough IMO.

@interruptor Yeah you’re totally a troll alright or have no idea what you’re talking about. You didn’t even check any of the files apparently. I only ever use AAC audio in everything I encode and always have since 2008. I only ever used FLAC one time and that’s because it was a music video request from someone in my community. That is saying I used the lossless 5.1 audio as the audio source for my 640Kbps AAC audio encodes, instead of using the DVD AC3’s like last time. I encoded the audio tracks into AAC audio like I always do and have done for many years. If you want to be ignorant and think things that are not true, then be my guest. Don’t believe the person that actually made all these. Go ahead and believe what you want, and simply don’t download this then.
There's no subtitles for when Keisuke is riding with Ryosuke & the last battle between Ryosuke FC3S & Takumi AE86 from 35:10 onward for Battle Digest.....

@kyshro You are correct. No one has subbed the last few minutes of that Battle Digest that I am aware of. Most uploads have no subtitles at all. I looked for subtitles for the last few minutes, and fans helped me look for fan subtitles, but nothing for that last few minutes was found or submitted.
@DarkDream787 Ok gotcha. Thanks again for uploading these and all your work! Hopefully we will get the remaining subtitles soon....
A NEW ADDITION TO MY COLLECTION! Keep seeding and I will help seed after I finish downloading.
ENGLISH SUBTITLES! It's been 4 months!!!!!!!!! Come on mannnnnnnnnn
@DarkDream787 Hi bro i have 2 questions, 1st this release its a batch from the individual V2 releases? or have more modifications in addition?, 2nd Considering that Initial D is an anime where Eurobeat predominates, wouldn't it be better to use the audios in FLAC?
Thanks for this!!!
