Given the amount of art we've gotten from this game, should it get its own section in the gallery? Or should there just be a single topic for them all in the miscellaneous section?

I think in the merchandise section might work best? It would be awesome if you want to add them :)

I noticed the quotes sounding very familiar, so it's cool knowing where each came from!
Kurojaki's scythe..... thats so awesome how much dedication the game makers had to put time into learning about even such a forgotten series such as Ginga u_u!! I hope one day, they'll bring in even more dogs. Maybe even GDW at some point? Probably not but .. could happen! lol

GDW isn't really possible since its owned by a different company altogether - Shueisha, the owners of Weekly Shounen Jump, only own the rights to GNG and some pre-GDW stories like Kacchuu no Senshi Gamu and FANG, while Nichibun owns GDW and all later Ginga series.

I fully expect we'll get more GNG characters some day, but how soon depends on how frequently new content is added to the game.

Whoa.. I had no idea. Well, that sucks, but GNG still has tons of cool characters to provide, so I'm excited!

I cleared the GNG island, Snowy Mountain of Fangs and Lamentations (which presumably sounds significantly less silly in Japanese), and screencapped everything the (non-random) enemies said, here's the album of the whole lot. As with the previous quotes, the translation was mostly done by Google Translate and I mostly just edited it to make sense.

The bosses have some unique intro lines if you've got Gin (or, in one case, Ben) in your party, but since I haven't bothered leveling up any non-GNG characters, I wasn't able to see what they say if you don't have him with you.

Interesting! I'm only still at island 13. Still a long way to the Ginga island.

BTW, should I spend my rubies on a specific batch to get Ben and Akame or can I get them from any? Also, what element are Ben and Akame? Gin is blue and Smith is yellow, but I have no idea what the others are

Ben and Akame can be gotten from all the ruby packs and they're both red. There could be an event someday where you're guaranteed a Ginga characterin every x number of ten-packs, since events like that are pretty common in gacha games, but it's hard to say for sure. So it's up to you if you want to spend your rubies now or if you'd rather save them in case we do get a Ginga event someday.

Kinda annoying they're both red. Would have preffered one of each color on my team. But who knows, new characters are added all the time

As part of Jumputi Heroes' New Year's event, we have a new and dapper Gin!

Image

This event-only Gin appears to take inspiration from lion dances and is fittingly called "Shooting Star Dancing Lion Gin" (流星の舞獅子 銀).

As far as I can tell the differences between Dancing Lion Gin and the normal Gin are purely cosmetic and they share the exact same stats and abilities.

Image

Dancing Lion Gin has a unique victory animation: he faces the screen, jumping left and right while the mouth on his lion costume opens and closes.

Image

His Battouga also uses a unique midnight background during the charge-up screen. The attack animation itself also shows ethereal blue jaws biting the opponent, but that's an absolute pain to get a screencap of :EMPTY:

Image

The New Year's event battles consist of a single boss fight against one of the event characters, chosen at random. Gin recycles his old "I'm Gin! Gin the tiger-striped bearhound!" line and also fights alongside a Koga dog for some reason.

It's probably worth noting that you get one Dancing Lion Gin for completing the first event quest which literally consists of just the boss talking to you, followed by automatic victory, so you the game actually gives you one of him for free.

Almost forgot: Dancing Lion Gin's profile uses a different picture than normal Gin's profile. (the profile itself is the same)

Image

Also here's a higher rez image of him in all his festive glory.

Image

edit: Finally managed to get a decent screenshot of the biting animation during his Battouga.

Looks like as part of the 50th anniversary they are uploading all the episodes to youtube one by one?

Restricted to Japan so if anyone uses a VPN browser I'd be keen to know what the video quality is like!

Edit: Okay I'm a snail I've just realised they uploaded these in September and I just didn't know or forgot |D ignore me!

Aww, Gin looks adorable in his Dancing Lion costume! :heart:

Also, those ethereal blue teeth could be the next advert for Colgate.
Remember kids; if you brush and floss then you too could have teeth like Gin! :DD

Not really Ginga-related but I felt it was worth a heads-up: as part of Jumputi Heroes' first anniversary, they're running an event where you can get 10 free characters a day. The event ends on April 12th, but you can't do it more than ten times, meaning you can get up to 100 characters for free!

Considering that, as far as I can tell, it's identical to the usual "10 characters for 1000 Rubies" pack, and 1000 Rubies is ~30 USD/euros, that's a pretty nice bargain :derpgin:
