Spindle vs Hulk

Post by Tora » Mon Aug 05, 2019 12:08 pm

In Mel no Tabidachi in Weed Gaiden, we all assume that Spindle is that Great Pyreneese looking dog, right? As Mel call out "Watch out Spindle" when one of the refugee's tries to attack with an axe. Though later, after all that, the owner of him calls him Hulk. But I re-read the story and now saw something:

Refugee swinging axe to the Husky-looking dog attacking...
...Mer screams "watch out Spindle" and it almost now hit the Pyreneese-looking.

Could the Husky-looking dog be Spindle? And Pyreneese-looking one be Hulk only? What do you guys think?

To me, it looks like the man is aiming at the the Great Pyrenees (the husky is a couple feet to his right in the panel where Mel jumps on him, far enough to not be in immediate danger) and thus Mel is warning him.

It's hard to say for sure, of course, but I assume Spindle is his "real" name (possibly from his parents or a previous owner) and Hulk is the name his owner gave him.

Could also be because Mel jumped on the human and looked like it changed direction and almost his the Pyrenees?
This is many possibilities

I agree with Digsu and say that Hulk is just a name his owner gave him and Spindle is his "real name".
It's the same way with Bellatrix where his owners call her Chiko..

I also just had this discussion with Suetic on GB's Discord:
from Discord wrote: SirSuetic 14:26
That's interesting but wasn't this husky particular left behind to watch over Jodie? Now he's with the group:

ToraCollita 14:27
This could be another Husky one, Big was left to watch Jodie

SirSuetic 14:27
That other one's markings change into the same that Big has

ToraCollita 14:28
Maybe, but as Big is with Jodie, I think this one can be another one, a relative perhaps then?

SirSuetic 14:29
Or someone at least
But yeah, I think that Pyrenees is Spindle because that one is clearly a leader

ToraCollita 14:30
We know Yoshi made huskies look almost alike before: just look at two of Hakuro's sons: Suzaku and Seiryū
But the Pyrenees is later called Hulk by the owner

SirSuetic 14:31
Maybe that's the similar case with Joe who is also called Champ?

ToraCollita 14:32
Could be, but Joe was named as we know before he was a pet. This Pyrenees has always been a pet as we know

SirSuetic 14:34
Maybe Hulk was re-adopted?

ToraCollita 14:35
No idea how that was. But to me, it looks like the Husky one, not Big, is Spindle, and the Pyrenees is Hulk

SirSuetic 14:35
Or Takahashi couldn't decide the names for the characters.

ToraCollita 14:36
I thinks this is a really interesting discussion of a character names XD

SirSuetic 14:36
It might be possible although the human almost managed land a hit on Hulk
:laughing:

ToraCollita 14:37
To me it could be as Mel jumped on the man it changed to almost hit the Pyrenees XD
Like, so many possibilities XD

SirSuetic 14:37
In Iga arc. Jinnai mistakenly calls Kirikaze Tsukikage until it's corrected few pages later

ToraCollita 14:39
Well, and then in Meteor Gin, Tsukikage is mentioned, but not Hayato's brother. For me I could easy see that Jinnai was mistakenly called Tsukikage (hell, they're all white)

SirSuetic 14:40
:joy:
Damn it Takahashi, can you just decide on the names plz

The husky isn't Big, nor was he the dog left with Jodie.

Image
"All right! We'll handle the rest."
"Big, stay here and guard Jodie."

Hulk and the black lab are looking at each other when he says this, so the lab is Big, not the husky. Jodie telling the husky to stay behind immediately after he says "we'll handle the rest" (when talking about stopping the convicts) would sound a bit odd, too.

Oh, that's a nice catch!! I didn't notice that.

So Justice would be like this of members:
Jodie - female Labrador
Lewis - male dalmatian
Alexander - male little dog
Spindle - male Malamute/Husky
Hulk - Pyreneese
Big - male labrador
Peter - male shepherd

If Spindle really is the Husky-looking dog, Why is the Pyrenees one thanking Mel for the warning and not the Husky?
Especially when Mel shouts out a name?

For the warning either way, even if it's not shouted at him in first place. That's how I read it
