A question:
Is it stated anywhere that Ram is a Collie? Or is it just another assumption?

So did somewhere during GNG, the series was taken out of Shonen Jump and into this new magazine? Or did GNG stay, but never reached the top again and then once GDW started, Yoshi went from Shonen Jump to the new magazine publishers?

GNG was published in Shounen Jump for its whole run from 1983 to 1987, and later stories that are directly tied to it (like the GNG Gaidens) were also published in magazines owned by Shueisha. As for GDW, according to Yoshi's interview included in some editions of Byakuren no Fang, years after GNG had ended and he'd drawn a lot of non-dog manga, he finally felt he'd "done all the things he'd wanted to depict in his works", so he decided to return to drawing dog manga. He then tried pitching the idea of a GNG sequel to a few publishers before Nichibun Comics agreed to publish it (he says that, around that time, sequels tended to do badly, which would explain why publishers would be wary of the idea) and thus GDW began running in Weekly Goraku in 1999.

He doesn't name any of the companies that rejected his pitch, but personally I wouldn't be surprised if Shueisha was one of the companies he approached during that time.

Here's a question about a picture in the manga - does anyone know in which part, chapter or page Kyoshiro winks and smiles in? I've been going through the scans I have of the manga but I can't seem to find it. There's soooo much book to go through!
I did a Ginga dog horoscope and according my calculations, I am most like Gin! Am I lucky?

I took one of those 'Which character are you?' tests, one which happened to be Ginga related and it said I would
be most like Tesshin! I feel quite honoured!

The first that I found was this. It's from GDW volume 35, chapter 8, page 198.

Do we have any kanji or kana for the Shikoku siblings in the anime? Hanji, Heita, Ryou, and Ryuu?

As far as I know, no known kanji exists for their names. The credits just lump them together as "Shikoku dogs" (四国犬) and Japanese Wikipedia just writes their names in hiragana (りょう, りゅう, はんじ、へいた).

I assume the only way to find out if the animation team ever even gave their names kanji is if some day a studio reference sheet for the four was found. :THOT:

Thanks. ^^
Studio sheets of them would be nice to find :THOT:


Now, Harunosuke from ep 25 only...

Makes me wonder, anyone have the Japanese DVDs? Do they have Japanese subs on as well?

Teru's Father's name is never known. Even if he did have a name, it was never revealed.

Is Nobushige Taichi's father?

I just randomly looked up Nobushige on the Ginga wiki, and the article vaguely mentions that Taichi tried to "save his father" but doesn't really indicate that they're related. But Nobushige's facial markings do look similar to Taichi's so I just had to ask
