Favorite and Least Favorite GDW:O Characters

Post by Gingastar » Thu Dec 28, 2017 5:05 am

A topic to discuss your favorite and least favorite Ginga Densetsu Weed: Orion characters!

My favorites are:
Orion
Sirius
Izou
Bon
Yamabiko
Kenshin

Least Favorites:
Bella

So why Bella?
While I certainly don't hate Bella I just don't think there's much to her. Yoshi tends to push her in the back or make her cry, always taking her away from the action.

Feel free to discuss why you think of certain characters as your favorite or least favorite!

Please be sure to remain respectful of others! We all have different favorites and least favorites! :D

Izou, Tesshin, and Shirozaru for top fav answers. Izou just .. I felt like I really bonded with him and his brothers. It was probably one of the nicest experiences, him and his bros raising Orion, I've felt in a Ginga manga yet. He's not afraid to cry, he's not afraid to give Orion a chance and then regret it, he's not afraid to give a hug when it's needed, and not afraid to die for his family. He taught Orion that being a great 'male' can sometimes mean knowing when to run away. And to top it off, it's refreshing to see characters kill really bad villains when they deserve it.
It took GDWO for me to realize how interesting Tesshin is. He's skilled, raised by all three biggest ranks of Ohu, but still makes mistakes (when he failed his Battouga). His extreme fascination of the Battouga is really interesting too. To teach so many people that and also gather up a pack, like he should have had long ago, is really nice to see.
As for Shirozaru, I like seeing him not be as OP as most ninja dogs. Yeah, he can jump high, but he was never taught ninja moves or skills. He seems calm and quiet, but still able to mess up, which isn't common in Akame's bloodline. Nothing's wrong with being imperfect but still cool. He's a better Akame, in my opinion xD

Honorable mentions go to Orion, Sirius (how sad how he turned out to be as a grown up), Akakamakiri, and possibly Heizou (the guy's dedicated), Rigel, Terumune, and Bon.

As for least favs.... hard to say... I didn't really hate anyone. Maybe Bon's dad? He was pretty spineless. Maybeeee.... the new kai bros? Though there were two trios of them in this lol both were evil though. Ah, okay. Maybe the ones who killed Terumune.

Sirius is definitely my favourite in the series, his endless devotion despite unpopular opinion around him caught my heart.
Kamakiri I like for being a ginga villain that actually slowly starts to redeem himself, going all the way to forgive his mother for leaving them.
I adore Bon's dumb but jolly face.
Kotetsu! He's grown up from a stupid fanboy to a mature adult who knows how to go undercover and hold in his feelings.
Yamabiko I'm also fond of. He's got a lot on his plate (fond feelings for his brother, leadership) but he is still level headed. A little too devoted to Orion though.

I dislike Orion's violent saviour complex, and Izou's cold heartedness rubbing off on him (remember Kisaragi was no saint, and the way of thinking carried down).
The killer Kai brothers disgust me.
Terumune, acutally. I found him to be too little too late, in raising Masamune in abuse and then casting him off for Yamabiko. And then turning to go down as if he is honourble!

My favorite characters would have to be Orion :orion: and Akakama :akakama:

I love Orion because of how different he is compared to the other Ginga protagonists we've gotten so far. He's brash, battle hungry, and headstrong. He's also shown to care deeply for his friends and loved ones.
With Akakama I love how he slowly went from bloodthirsty monster to a noble dog who wants to do the right thing because of Sirius influence, I also love how he got some closure with his mother. It's my favorite scene in GDWO. He's also shown to care for his brothers pre reformation.

As for least favorite characters, I don't really have any tbh :rigel4:

I've only read as far as what's on the SFR, but Bon very quickly grew on me! He's one of the kids that actually behaves like a kid. His character is funny, cute, and different than all of the other puppies we've seen, with his connections to the army. I was a little peeved with how rapidly this was changed from one chapter to the next; first it seemed like he admired and liked his dad, and the next he hated him because apparently Matheus killed a lot of his friends. I figure it was just an easy way to get him to not only join to Ohu gang, but fight against his parents, excluding Uncle Blanka. I especially liked that part, his relationship with his Uncle, but I almost wish we got more of this with him and his father, maybe slowly realizing that his father has done evil things, and he must sever his relationship with him if he should keep Orion as a friend. It would have been an interesting character conflict, and maybe would make him more mature after having to choose.

I actually liked Masamune quite a bit, too. From the beginning, I understood his motives, taking the place of Ohu after they had supposedly been wiped out by the volcano eruption. This is, after all, a mission they'd been working on for literally hundreds of years, and since he was young, his life had been filled with motivation to impress his father and grow stronger. Along with resentment at being rejected as the leader, his anger grew into his wanted to prove that he was just the kind of fearsome leader the Kurohabaki deserved. (I might be stretching it a little there, or reading between the lines, but this is what I got from it). This last part's a little shallow, but it kind of tickled me that he's this canonically short, angry dog wearing a scarf on top of his fluffy human-hair.

Any character I really disliked...I suppose Tenka, after he left Gennai behind, and especially after entering Unsai's territory and trying to mind-control him. Rude emperor. He seems to have gotten better in Noah, when he shows up to assist Unsai's troops on his own. Other than him, I can't think of any characters that really made me dislike them - there are parts where characters did things I disliked, but they never persisted with the character.

Gin has always been my absolute favorite
But other favorites is Rigel, Yamabiko and Tesshin

I'm quite confused about Sirius, sometimes I like him, sometimes I don't
He can be to much now and then, really enjoying, but I still like his way of thinking, his kindhearted
