When I saw the interviews on the dvd, it said it doesn't stand for Read or Die.  ROD: The TV is kinda based on Read or Dream(the manga) but kinda different too.  I think they said they left it as just ROD.

No, it's still Read or Die like the OAV. Read or Die was from the manga of the same name, the TV series was based off of Shin Read or Die (the sequel manga). Read or Dream if anything is just the subtitle for that sequel manga. Or so I have seen. Who were the interviews with on the DVD?

No its not, its only 26.

Episodes. O_o What else? That's one season, very normal in anime. Therefore, NOT long.

Actually, that's two seasons or half a year of episodes; if they follow an episode a week format.   There are fifty-two weeks in the year.  There are four seasons in a year, so one season must be three quaters of a year.  Thusly a season is thirteen weeks long, which would make it thirteen episodes per season.  We can then calculate that twenty-six is thirteen twice and therefore must be two seasons long.

Ok, an old 1 season. Now its two since they are making so many 12/13/14 episode series. So for instance, Trigun and Cowboy Bebop are each 1 season... and Ranma is 7, not 14. ^^;;

Actually, I was talking about the Initial D Special Stage v3 arcade game, I have a 240sx in real life.  Not bad, but I don't have the money (or rather the will power necessary to save my money) in order to modify it.  I have upgraded the intake and exhaust systems and I got a new boost controller for my turbo, but that's about it so far.  If only I didn't buy so much manga, anime, and video games...

Arcade Stage Ver.3*

And ok, that makes more sense. ^^;; Do you have an older 240sx that looks kinda like a 180sx, or do you have one of the newer ones that look more like a Silvia?

'98, looks like a silvia, it's a matte black that looks sexy as all hell, not as fast as some of the other guys at the auto-cross, but I'm a better driver.  Still, I get killed on the straights and coming out of corners, especially against Aman's STI.  Good times, good times.

Awesome, I can't afford a newer 240sx... ^^;; Anyway, back on topic, no need to make this into a car thread. ^^;;
