As cool of an arc it was, Yukimura's final battle with Shogun is hard to watch because of all the axe killings ;;;
Sharp weapons always made me squirmy and Yoshi went all out with how realistic Shogun's sloppy slices would hurt the others. Heads getting just part of an ear cut off, that one traitor monkey's imperfect cut, even Yukimura's stab and being held up by the stick was like AAAAAAAAAAAAA.
I still feel this way about Kurojaki VS Akame with the sickle, Hayato's death, and Orion's finishing attack on Monsoon too. ~.~

..BUT DOGS CUTTING WITH THEIR FANGS ARE OK. Weird brain :tfw_sirius2:

I always struggle to remember which of the doberman assassins is Thunder and which one is Lecter. :thunder: :lecter:

I've used their smilies here to remind me for the hundredth time, but I can guarantee you that I will have forgotten again in about an hour's time. :yama1:

The dog fighting arcs/characters never really bothered me since they were so fantastical, yet I shudder at the (Pit Bull) fight writeups in my vintage dog books. :THOT:

Possibly because axes/sickles etc are human. We see them go in and our monkey brain goes 'that could happen to me!' while fangs don't have the same strong effect(?)
Yukimura's arc was probably the goriest one tbh

I cannot stand Silverthepuppy's Ginga fan work. There is no plot and no actual content, but he constantly amps it up like he's God's gift to the fandom. Really can't understand how he still has fans.
But if you point the story having anything related to Ginga out, he'll scream that it's not ginga anymore'
Bruh stop

I'm really not too interested in a lot of ginga fanwork actually. I'm too much of a picky bitch I guess.

I never was a fan of him even waaaaaaaaaaay back in the day and watched all of his content to see what everyone was talking about. And normally I like bad little kid ms paint animations with characters that are just Weed recolored with green fur lol
I guess it was alright for the time but it didn't age well and all I hear is that it's going to be rebooted but nothing really to show for it?

Dunno if he still goes after green Weed ocs but my main peeve with him is how crappy and stuck up his attitude is towards his fans :S I don't know how such rude people can always keep a fanbase. A lot of really popular ginga fan artists seem to be absolutely hateful and toxic to their fans or in general :( like I never liked nekonotaishou either, and they're still very popular despite me seeing them all the time in the 2010s going after users for "not being original enough", (some ocs they were hating on for looking too much like a Ginga character, they themselves had a oc exactly like that..) or they thought the art was unrealistic or ugly.
Some users they even stalked and made literal pages of hate + snark art towards them on livejournal for years just because they thought their Ginga fan comic was stupid and ugly looking despite the user trying to improve and doing some of the changes they demanded they do. Disgusting. Sometimes they could give good constructive criticism but usually it was just "everything looks deformed!" with no mention of how to fix it or stupid comments like "their stupid face marking looks like birdshit lol" and none of that is remotely a constructive crit.

I find that the Ginga fandom is a particularly bad for mixing up canon and fanon and it bothers me deeply. It's not a new phenomenon either. When I first got into Ginga in 2008 it was just accepted that Ben and Moss were half-brothers because??? Who knows where that came from. And that Pink Dragon was female and that the koga dogs were shikoku ken. I can sort of see why it happens. The fandom so small - especially the English speaking side - that if something gains traction its easily spread. But it's still frustrating.

Another confession is the GDW is probably in the top ten of samurai anime haha. Everything about it is a samurai anime.

YES!
I also wish the fandom would read more of the canon that is available instead of going off of random spoilers and what user 132420435903459 said. It's perfectly fine to hate a character or plot line-bit at least have manga panels to support your claim. It's so exhausting to read debates that sound like the ones we had back in the day when scans were a pipe dream :tfw_aokabuto2:
We have scans now, why not read them...? I will never understand the logic that "I can write so much better than Yoshi" when Yoshi's actual work has barely been read...
I've been in this fandom way too long

When I first watched GDW as a kid, I was super excited to see a character named Jerome since my godfather is named Jerome
So I drew Jerome and sent the picture to him bc I thought it was funny :surprisegin:

...Thinking about it now, I'm glad he never looked into the series bc he'd probably wonder why I was watching something so violent at that age and why was it called WEED :jeromeder:

I also thought Smith was a girl because the Finnish voice was a woman. Same thing with Hyena :yama1:

I haven't really cried either. In fact I can't think of a single death that would've made me so upset. Sirius's death was sad but the manga ended so quickly I barely even realized he died. :tfw_aokabuto2:

My confession is that I used to write Kurotora as Kuratora when I was a kid. It literally means mud tiger. I guess that would suit him too :tfw_rigel1:

Here's a new confession for you - I like it when the manga shows the dogs just chilling and having fun like when the Star Sibs interacted in First Wars, when the army was celebrating Reika and Hiro's puppies and when Weed and Koyuki were falling in love. I really wish we had more parts and bits like that in the series. It was good to see them just have peace for a while.
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!
