Yeah, considering the context of the names being astrological, I've always pronounced them as o-rai-in and rai-jil. Somewhat of a confession, but I've always preferred Mel's name as Mel rather than Mer, even if it's short for Mercedes. I just don't like that name at all lol
Same, Im not a fan of how "Mer" sounds in English, I think Mel works better. Plus, iirc he is named after one of Yoshi's old dogs, who his wife called "Mer/Mel" after Mel Gibson apparently.

Me was named after Mel Gibson??? Eeeewww :OUT:

Also I'm actually relieved that Rigel's name is pronounced Rai-jill because even though I always assumed his name was pronounced Ree-gull, I never liked that pronunciation. So I'm glad there's another way to say his name that I like better.

So, I didn't get to read the manga. I'll have to look to see where to find that. I knew about some of the important events, thanks to Ginga Wiki and other sources, but there is one thing I never realized.

For a long time, I thought Yamabiko was female. I assumed based on his interactions with Orion and how some people ship them together. I don't have anything against LGBTQ+, but I assumed because I haven't seen anything that suggested that there were same-sex couples or anything like that in Ginga. Except for the interactions between Smith and Chutora, and Rocket and GB.

So, yeah. I thought Yamabiko was female, but I guess it makes a lot more sense for him to be male. Nothing sexist, but because I think Orion might be homosexual.

I genuinely cannot see Hyoma as brown and Retsuga as grey.

I have the keychain from Nishioka of Hyoma and then seeing the colored manga images of the two..... the colors looks so foreign to me. To me, it's the reverse: Hyoma is grey, Retsuga is brown.

When I watched both animes for the first time, I thought Gin and Weed were voiced by actual boy actors. Then a while later, I found out that they were voiced by female actresses. How unwitting of me. :nosebleed:

I don't think it's possible for me to cry to poor ol Smith's death. Before I knew Ginga at all as a young teen, my friend tried getting me into it by watching GDW and during his dying scene, she told me to 'GET OUT THE TISSUES FOR THE WATERWORKS' but because I didn't really know who he was at the time, I was just watching like :Koyukisweat: the whole time. Like 'we just met this guy, am I suppose to feel sad...?' Now reseeing the scenes just reminds me of that memory :tfw_bella1: rip.

Fun fact: I have never made it through John's death in the anime or manga without sobbing profusely before! :yama1:

That's always made me cry too :tfw_orion1: Everytime....

Also a random confession.... I sometimes forget these are just like... normal ass dogs size wise. I guess I been too into my project that I forget these aren't giant dogs like in my story. :Koyukisweat:

Like for some reason I just keep thinking they're big and then a human comes into the mix and it's just like "oh shit right, normal dogs"

NO BECAUSE ME TOO

I love when Daisuke comes into the mix and we see Gin is only up to like, his knee or something and I'm just comparing all the sizes like :tfw_orion2

I mix up Kin and Tama's names all the time. I seriously need to double check which one's which almost every time I mention one of them in a post... I keep forgetting which one's dead and which one's alive. :yama1:

Many years ago, when I was swamped weekly by rabid fans and rabid haters of Ginga on da that would think any natural dog was a Ginga dog, I hadn't watched Ginga yet and thought maybe watching amvs of it would give me an idea of wtf was going on because my internet was so atrocious around then I didn't have the patience to wait for episodes of anything to load.
I was so off the mark lmfao. What I thought was the the gist of gdw's plot is what follows, taken from a discord conversation:
SPOILER

Finally got enough patience to spend literal hours loading just one episode. I was aware of gng, but watched gdw first because episode one, part 2 of 3 of gng refused to load past a few minutes in no matter what I did. :bella4:

"Weed is killed. The end."
LMFAO

This story sounds exciting all on its own LOL
Were you disappointed or impressed by its real plot? :tfw_aokabuto1:

Hmm, I'm not sure! My first Ginga watchthrough I was being unfairly critical of it. The second time I watched it I think I was a little disappointed it wasn't as.. dramatic as my gist was, but I still liked it so it's all good XD

To this day I still can't pronounce "Iga" correctly.

I know the right pronunciation is "ee-gah" but ever since I started watching Ginga I've always been pronouncing it as "ai-gah" in my head, with the i being pronounced like a capital i. Ten full years of a habit I still can't break.

I've been pronouncing it "ai-gah" all these years as well... and it's only occasionally I remember to remind myself that it's wrong. :yama1:
