"This is a blog about Ginga series (a fan blog, more or less)
But also Yoshihiro Takahashi and his work as ; Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, Yamato, Fang , Giant, Densetsu Weed, Orion, and others.
So the blog is more a way for me to write about my passion, perhaps addiction in my life : )
There are talk, theory, ideas .So I don't clam to be an expert , I'm just Ginga insane and like to talk, write. Perhaps we together on the blog can find clues, theory, idea's about the merchandise, item's. And bring more lights on things"
! Beware !
The Blog site can give out spoilers (I will warn aswell) And I can also write about topic that can have violence, bloody contain.
Many of
Yoshihiro Takahashi can hold such theme & contain. But I probably will warn at the start on the blog, is that is necessary.
Other then that there are just my thought and ideas as a ginga insane collector ; )

- The DVD Box

The dvd Cover
Images  on the dvd spins
In the year of 2007 there came a collection box
This one were design by the artist ; Alice Engström , miss-collie  , from Nosebleed studio
She design the cover  on Weed, but also Silver Fang (GNG) dvd'sThe Single Dvd's as you can call it the Second dvd edition ; vol 1-4 

Inside the dvd box. There are 8 disc,dvds
With the Weed dvd box there is a "Booklet"/brochure with a small Story Guide on sixteen pages. About the anime, Characters, pictures and so one.
Non more extra
This one are large box and really nice done
A personal favorite of mine when it come the the Weed dvd's

So how hard is this one to get ?
To tell the true; Hard
At lest how I experience it. For the
dvd box  are no longer in stores.
You can be lucky at second hands or auctions site .
Like the Swedish auction site :

- Collection dvd case,box
The we comes to the lest (so far) the new release 
As a cover for the dvd box there are keep case over the box.
As you see
This one have  Keep-Case box look, more slimmer then the first box
There are four dvd disc's
No special thing more then the case box I guess
It's Swedish & Finnish sub, with Japanese speaking
The release date : 2012-03-07
Yes this one are the newest one ^^
And this are still in stores in Sweden


I hope to do Weed dvd's , part 2 and perhaps 3
So I can write about the The Danish and Norwegian & Finnish release

Yes I will update more with some photos , soon


  1. Where did you get that lower DVD Box?

    1. All the dvd s, the dvd boxes are Swedish release.
      So I got them on different stores , a time back.
      But the only one that you can get now in a store is the last one. The other have gone out (can't be bought).
      Well in second hand store or auctions I guess you can get them
