I just realized this today but.. Did Daisuke not give Weed a name?
He calls Gin by his name of course, and he named Sirius, Orion, Rigel, and Bella. But all I remember him ever calling Weed was "Gin's son" or "little guy" etc... Did he really not bother giving Gin's son a name/nickname??? XD
That's just sad. Especially when Weed has been in his and Hidetoshi's care multiple times..

Well, GB named Weed, instead of Daisuke... He couldn't know Weed's name.
No, but I believe Limonzy is saying that they are surprised that Daisuke still didn't give Weed his own, separate name. Sort of like how Benizakura's name is Benizakura, but his human called him "Don".

Ah, I see then. xD
Benizakura was named Benizakura by his first owner through, and then renamed by his second owner to Don...


P.S. Where's your avatar with business Weed from? I love it

It's from the manga 55 Sai no Chizu by Kurosaki Kazuto, which has a weird two-panel gag depicting Yoshi and his team of assistants as actual dogs.

Why did the russians dogs start a war with ohu dogs? What did Maxime, Victor and Aramu want?
And, what did Maxime say to his father when he returned, what did he tell him about Lydia, Victor and Aramu.

They did not originally start a war with Ohu - they only wanted to invade Hokkaido so they could live there as their homeland Sakhalin (an island north from Hokkaido) was a very harsh place to live. Ohu joined the war to revenge Hakuro and everyone else who were killed by the Russians.

Maxim lied and told his father that everyone starved to death and Hokkaido is barren wasteland where they can't survive.

Sorry for a double post!

Why don't they make more editions of russians arc? They already made hougen arc, monkey arc but not russians and hybrid bear arcs? Would be so cool with new cover with them! :<

I guess they wanted to keep costs low due to the length of the series and focused on the arc covered by the anime.

Ive been thinking... is there any reference in GDW (or other sequels) about the Koga clan's past habit of being cannibals? Tesshin must know something, or did the elder leave that out too when he went back to Koga? I feel as though Tesshin would have been skeptical from the start if the elder mentioned that the Koga clan ate other dogs and wouldn't have turned on Ohu as easily. I 100% do not recall there being any mention of it but I forget things.

It's very briefly touched on in the manga; when Kyoshiro is first telling Weed and company about the Koga dogs, he mentions there's a rumor that they used to (or possibly still do) eat their opponents.

It's unknown whether or not Tesshin knew about his father forcing the clan into practicing cannibalism, but judging by the fact that he talks about "the sins of [his] father" and how he's spent his whole life seeking to atone for the crimes of his father (which... makes zero sense when you consider his introductory chapters in GDW, but anyhow) after Sniper slices his gut open, it's possible he was aware of it.

I actually vaguely remember now when Kyoshiro mentioned it. Though I guess it doesn't go into much more detail than that... Does Sniper mention something then when he attacks Tesshin in the final parts of the Hougen arc?

No, he just says that Tesshin shouldn't have made him his enemy and Tesshin starts talking about Kurojaki on his own. Sniper also calls Tesshin "Chibi" before correcting himself, which also sort of just raises additional questions but I digress.
