Could this be Shouji?

Post by Tora » Thu Jan 04, 2018 4:36 pm

I just recently hit me when looking at covers of GDW, that there's this dog on vol 11:

My guess it can be Shouji, even if it's lacking the dark by the nose. Or can it be someone else? As it's definatly shoing traits of a Kai (mix) I mean.

That definitely looks like Shouji.

Either Shouji or a faulty Nobutora.

Here's a bit more hi-rez image, from the art book:

It definitely looks like Shouji. Maybe Yoshi had intended for him to survive and join the Ohu dogs? Who knows.

Well, what exactly happens in vol 11? We can pinpoint it by the storyline. I have a feeling that Digsu is right though (it is Shouji and he was first meant to join the Ohu dogs).

In my mind it always was, because Kagetora is also on the cover and quite grey, where as this dog is brown like I imagine Chutora's sons should have been.
I don't remember what's happened in the manga at that point to know if it makes sense chronologically to be him or not.
In their first introduction, don't they come down from the tree tops? That could be the general idea, them teaching the others to climb.

Ironically, vol 11 doesn't feature Chutora's sons at all. Volume 10 has them arriving at Gajou to help Mel and 12 features the battle that ends up claiming all but Shigure's lives.

Maybe the cover was drawn well in advance, before Yoshi decided that Shigure would be the surviving brother?

We do see Shigure twice in colour in Goraku:

I never liked the anime making them all boring grey. XD

Yeah, that's what I thought too. He maybe didn't know that one who will survive was Shigure? Or he forgot to draw spots, it could be Shigure?

This guy's facial traits clearly indicate Shouji, not Shigure. :/
