My boyfriend just linked me to this Finnish rap music video, titled "Jeesei".



As you can hear, it's either sampling or recreating this melody from the GNG soundtrack. Just an example of the series' influence on Finland, when it's even used in mainstream rap.

Thats. CRAZY!!
It sounds so freakin good too! To think one day Ginga's ost could be used as a beat to rap to... it works though! I kinda hope they make more with more Ginga ost xD

This reminds me of when I once watched a Finnish fan dub of a Sonic movie by a group called "Dubbinaattorit" and they used GNG's osts for some scenes, or at least one. Much like the rap, this just goes to show the anime's impact over here. They also at some point dubbed the missing later parts of GNG, but I'm not sure if those are anywhere to be found anymore, unfortunately (as they shut themselves down at one point).

Link in the spoiler, the music is at 16:55 if you're curious.:
"Exceed the you from yesterday."
-Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin

Words to truly live by.

I got kinda impressed to hear that Ginga is very popular in Finland but somehow it really doesn't surprises me when I think about it? I mean, the original Ginga series's setting is full of snow and a "colder" atmosphere, and when I think of Finland, "cold climate" is one of the very first things that comes to mind (and it probably looks that way for me because I live in a tropical zone and there's no such thing as snowy places here)

Takahashi himself have speculated that it is because of how similar Finland and Japan are in nature, and I guess that can be a big factor too.
I concour, the snow mountains, snow dogs etc...
I love filnland too.

Hello! :surprisegin: I was wondering What caused Ginga to gain so much momentum in finland
I just don't know. Maybe it has something to do with Gohei, who's just like a typical finnish man: silent, reclusive, drinks booze and sometimes gets outbursts of rage. :gohei:
