"This battle 7 (esp 19-21) DVD starting out is the conclusion of the Mt. Usui race which tak vs Mako (Sil-80). Cole find the picture of Ry (Top driver of Gunma) in Maya wallet that she admires him very much. Cole then decide to break a date with Maya because of his jealousy but then decide to meet and race to her at last miniutes. Finally, Gunma top racing star Ry decided to challenge Tak for the utimate race at Akina....which will not happen until the very end of episode 24. Episode 26 is nothing but songs and some race scenes from previous races....I think! This is the first stage of the fourth stages of the entire series.... which are not over yet. "Stage 1" have 26 episodes. I think Tokyopop will combine Stage 1 & 2 together. So, there will be 13 battle DVDs that you need to buy.
"Stage 2" has 13 episodes (Meet a new team name Evolution and Tak starting to race at opponents?? courts more often now. Also, a love story of Tak And Natsukiand continues.... Iggy make friend with a new out of town girl. Tak find out the dark secret that Natsuki has been hidden from him.
"Stage 3" is the movie. Continuing a love story between Tak and Natsuki, also some battles take place. Ry ask Tak to join his new team called "Project D" and hope to conquer all the mountains in Japan
"Stage 4 (Project D)" is being air on Japan right now and DVD vol. 1 and 2, which contain 2 episodes on each volume, is out. Tak will be the downhill and K.T will be the uphill specialist for this project. Stage 4 I heard has 14 episodes and there might be "Stage 5" and is going to be a movie. I can't until next year to get "Stage 4" DVD because I don't want to get volume by volume, hopefully they will put all the episodes into one package.I would recommend everyone to watch the Japanese dialog track because the character voices and the music are ways better than the dub version. If you have to watch the dub version, switch over to Japan version whenever they race. You will know what I mean the differences in car audio sound and music from the dub version.Natsuki has a dark secret and you guys will know in "Stage 2" series."

"TOKYOPOP doesn't know anime and transform it into uglyness (change score, characters' names, cut scenes, etc...). Pioneer at least keep the original score and characters' names for their animes."
