What Ginga content would you like to see in the future?

Post by Wolpard » Fri Mar 08, 2019 5:39 pm

As the title says; what new/upcoming content would you like to see?

I'm generally not super keen on reboots, but I'd personally love to see a GNG anime reboot for several reasons:
1. being that Ginga (as a whole) has a lot to improve on, and I'd like to see different writers give the original series a go perhaps with less sexism
2. considering more modern anime is being translated to English, I feel it would be a good chance to "advertise" the series to more English-speaking audiences (i guess you could do this with a new installment anime of something that hasnt been adapted yet, like Orion, but since GNG is from the 80's I think its worthy of a reboot)
3. more new merch! with new anime usually comes new merch, something that isn't necessarily true with something that's remained as manga.

What about you? What do you guys wanna see in the future for Ginga?

Same for an anime reboot. It would have to be traditional animation though, but thankfully japanimation is not all that into CGI so it probably wouldn't come to that.

Seconded for a GNG anime reboot. Not saying that the original is bad at all, but I think it can be improved upon with a bigger budget as its foundation. I would sincerely hope that they don't change the soundtrack much, however. The soundtrack is still a real defining feature of the anime (I've lost count of the number of times I've listened to it on YouTube and my old iPod).
I'd also love to see more merchandise in the future as well. Maybe some GDW:O and TLW figurines or plushies? I would kill for a Sirius plush, or imagine how cool a bear plush like Akakabuto or Monsoon would be. Heck, I'd settle nicely for badges or keychains too.

More plushes would be awesome, especially from PurePlastic if they made a GNG or GDW:O lineup :D

One of my lowkey hopes for Ginga is that there'll eventually be a total anime reboot starting with GNG and hopefully making it to GDW and onwards, with much better animation and eventually enough notice to get a full-series English publication but I know it's a super long shot at this rate ;A;

Also, I'm hoping for at least a Gaiden or something to provide further closure on TLW, because what the hell happened to these guys :akakama: :bella: :koyuki: :reika: :bob: :zion: :bearchibi:

Excluding getting a new, full on Ginga series I would personally like to see more gaidens focusing on side characters.

More Gaidens would be cool!!
TBH I just really want stuff that could increase the fanbase, cause more popularity = more stuff. Maybe if the Stage Play does well we'll get something out of it.

GDWO anime would be cool! I think ideally they would reboot GNG and then go through the sequels. It's not likely but one can dream. Anything that would give us more merch and more plushies that aren't super expensive nor difficult to get outside of nordic countries.

Fighting doggies are entertaining, but let's be honest, Yoshi fails at writing complex characters and conflicts. I would like a manga with more fleshed out characters and engaging, complex plot. TFW despite being a comedy short makes a better job in writing its characters. I dunno, hire a writer and make come more gaidens xD

Indeed! But I'd love to see Russians arc in anime but we'll never know well. Ginga could be so much more popular if they made more anime of it. Thats' what I think :surprisegin:

He definitely does, that's why I'm hesitant when it comes to recommending Ginga to someone. That's kinda why I would like to see a reboot of the anime and giving the reboot writers more liberty to edit/change things (and especially modernize it because Yoshi is clearly very old fashioned, especially considering the way he treats his female characters). The concept of Ginga is interesting and I personally love a lot of elements of it's style and character designs, I would love to see someone give it another go with story and character improvements.

Man I need to stop thinking so much about an anime reboot because it makes me sad that it's so unlikely to happen. Where can I sign a petition?

I agree with this. I adore Ginga for what it is and it will always have a special place in my heart but... darn Yoshi can’t write deep characters. His characters are almost always very one note, or if he does have something good going for a character one of two things happen:

A: It’s only “good” because the fans make it good by looking deeper into the psychology/thoughts of the character and make that character more interesting.

B: Yoshi has something very good set up and going only for him to then take it in a direction that is rather dull.

I would love to see a story with more fleshed out characters and depth to them other than just having one staple personality and having them stick with that one trait.
