"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 ; )

Ginga Blogs care survey

I couldn't help to be inspire by Anutt newerst blog post at Hopeatiikeri.blogspot.
The questioning about about bloging; Ginga-bloggaajat-hoi / Ginga-bloggers care


Leet us Start, shall we ? 
  1. When have you started?
  2. Where have you got an idea or inspiration to blog?
  3. Why are you blogging?
  4. What are you blogging about? Is there one thing or do you write just about everything?
  5. Do you read other ginga-blogs?

1. The first time I start to blog were on: Start and some talk 
The were in the year of 2012 , 13 th of April
Interesting the Friday the 13 th,  I have never reflect about this  ^^

For me;"To not be inspired by this series, it's a challenge in itself"
2. Just in General I get inspired.
You know that the hunting and be a collection can be a obsession. 

And even in you thought, in the mind Yoshihiro Takahashi, Ginga you can have ideas and perhaps in my case to many thoughts .
So for me writing, have been (and still are) a way to express myself, but also a bit of therapy.

I don't or I'm not so often hang out at Ginga or any community (nowdays ,to say at lest)
So this what are to  reflect what I think and talk to others .
That also give me inspiration to blog .
If people like it, follow the bog that are  great and make me happy ^^
Yoshihiro Takahashi many wok , the story's and  not forgetting his art are just fascinated.
So It's hard not to get inspire to blog  ^^

But most of the time I get idea's from the manga's, book, anime's.
And the many items that came with  item's,merchandise.  

The problem is that I like to write and talk
So the problem , issue is to know when to stop for me ^^

3 - 4 .  As I said above, I like to write
And English is the language train, practice on. 
With the Dyslexia that I have, that make it a bit harder, more challenge for me . 

But I love to read and writing, so that is my main power , driving force I guess.
That take me forward and just challenge me. 
I write in Swedish,  most of the time ; more Fanfiction's, novels, small story's. 
I do write other things then Ginga relate.
Like fantasy , dog, wolves, werewolves, Vikings story's and so one 
Let say; Ginga insane Party ;) 
So I just large challenge me to write in English with this blog.   

Also I like many thing that are relate with Yoshihiro Takahashi and his many work.
Come one I'm a bit Ginga insane when it come to my collection that I have and the interest I have to follow
Yoshihiro Takahashi.

Some of the Vhs of GNG that I have
Mostly all stated in the end of 1980, the start of  1990 when I got the first vhs of Silver Fang (Ginga Nagareboshi Gin) with the cut and Swedish dub .
I guess after that I were a bit addicted to the series and the collection began  ;  )

 As a collector it's a bit hard to not talk about ginga or other  that are related to Yoshihiro Takahashi and his many work.
So that main idea to blog about.
Just,what I feel passion about , I guess.
Later came the uncut version of GNG on dvd boxes.
And you know after that it's hard to not fall in love , one more in the series
The Finnish & Swedish GNG boxes (uncut version)
Then if there are other who like it, read what I blog about that is a big wow and thank you.
 It's way hard to describe how happy that I am .
And the kind, sweet mail that I got from  people over the time I blog
I most say thank you guys

Sorry got a bit emotional there. 
But tell the true it's is more giving to blog, in the way you get to meet and talk to interesting, fascinating people.
All over the world.

"As Gin, the pack of Ohu traveled all over the country, they also meet people,character that made a large in pack in their heart and life"   
; )   

And this were answer to questioning three and four.
I realize when I were writing that I talk about both three and four.
so I tought why  not write about them together, in away.

I know that I can talk to much and write parhaps long.

I know I need to write a bit more about Yamato, I love that series, after Ginga Nagareboshi Gin this one are a true favorite . 

Not forget to me the new (well for me) Densetsu Orion .
I have a few manga and some magazines. But I haven't yet start to write .

A bit of update, I have a computer that don't work right  , and that made it more hard to get time to write. 

But I will , sooner then later I guess   :  )

Sorry to go a bit of topic.
Back to the Ginga Blogs care survey

5.   Oh yes
I read other blogs indeed.

But, I have to use translation , most of the time Google Chrome to just read.
Other then English , it more hard to follow other side that aren't on Swedish or English.

But I still try ^^

As you can see I have added that blogs I follows on mine blog site .
And when some of them update, make a new blog you can more easy see that to ^^

I guess that they on the list are the main blog I follow.
Sure there are others, but I guess this one are those I keep track on . 

Sadly I forget or like now I have problem to answer or say anything on the comment .
But still, I follow, read and smiles happy at the other blogs out there

So this were the end of the; Ginga Blogs care survey for me
I have a large computer problem and , that make it take longer to write
I hate that

Take care my dears 

See you around , for the next time  ^^

I know I couldn't help it
The most cutest image on puppy Gin 
So adorable

Here comes updates and some plans

So I have been taking a break , let us say a Long vacation from bloging.
I had a lots of computer problem for a time and aswell problem with the scanner .
And I'm not a experts on those thing's .
So at same time I just taken easy from thing as well the collecting front  
But also I needed a break, new job,work took up and still take up a bit of mine time.

So I'm not dead , at lest not the blog ^^
I will be back, I hope soon  with Ginga, collection updates

Other blog upcoming thing
I working to update my collection site : My Bravestarr
I have got some questions about that site .
First ; Yes
I'm My Prue have created both of  the blog and the collection site  and they are connected .
I created first the collection site, just to keep a track on mine collection .
As you know I have a large collection, just the many manga of Yoshihiro Takahashi takes up space for mine bookshelves, bookcase.

And also the site aren't just for only ginga , Yoshihiro Takahashi related items.
I guess I have been or still are a bit of a guinea-pig, that collect many things.

I are planning to do a big update on my collection in November, December this year.
I feel that I need do do that , so I can keep more track on the items.

A mail came to me with some question, matter about to be a Ginga collector .
So I were thinking to answer that ans give my thought and advice in upcoming blog
I just feel this is imported to give advice and suggestion as a older , perhaps veteran collector ;  )

Bullying  and harassment over the internet
What you perhaps wondering,how did this subject came up with collector of Ginga or Mr Takahashi ?
Well it's mostly with all fanbase , if that are anime series, manga or so that are common that bulling, frozen out people come up.
And the so callad ginga fanbase, Yoshihiro Takahashi fanbase are not an a exception.
This is from mine own experience as a fan to GNG, Ginga, Yoshihiro Takahashi over that many years I have been active
Most be around the year of 1995 - 1999 (some year around there)   and 2000- until now I guess .
My plan is to list some help site for those who being bullying  . around the world.
If you want to contribute with links , site , fact ; where you can get support and helping site and so one
You are welcome to send me a mail  ^^

This idea were created, and been a project for me since the start of the year.
And Yes I haven't been so active on this . That I need to or hopped

The clube that working activ with anti bulling, support are those three.
Which I'm a member on aswell ;   


Road to

Well there are just three gropes that I mention here now.
But I'm sure that are much more out there

I think that this subject are important to take up.
The attitude against bullying need to change and take more serious then it's does now.

And NO there will not be hang out site, forum, board, persons or community
It's more talking about the bulling subject , my own  opinion, view with the experience.
And a good with to bring some light with link to help site , place were you can get support  if you are bullied or know some one beeing.
Or you perhaps will end bulling that happened in front of you  .
The sad thing that Bulling isn't just in school , it can be in the work place, at home , on the internet and so one.

Alright that a heavy subject
Other then the place I guess the update on mine Ginga , Takahashi collection will take some time. And also to take photos
But I have been planning and will write about those who inspire Yoshihiro Takahashi to create Ginga Nagareboshi Gin.
I thinking about Yukio Togawa with : King Fang
Jack London with : Call of the wild, White Fang 

And others 

Some perhaps know that I'm a big fan to Jack Londons books  and have been since I were very young child.I think the first more grown up book I ever read were; Call of the wild. 

But years back I fallen over Mr Togawa woth on King Fang
I have a small collection of  mangas. books , the anime vhs and others 

I adore a bit Yukio Togawa and Ishikawa Kodansha for that manga they created.
Even that I can't read so much Japanese or understand all just the images are wonderful to follow 

I have been planing for a time to write and ask others : 
How do you keep care of your collections ?

This isn't just for ginga collection, just collection in general .

Were do you keep the books, manga ,the more fragile items  ?
And so one

For I are thinking to do a update on how I keep mine collection.
But also give tips, advise , idea 
Love to hear from other to  ^^

Then the many other story's that aren't Ginga relate
The other work of Yoshihiro Takahashi I hope to blog about to   ^^

Oh my I have so many plans, ideas to work on this blog.
But I need to fix the computer at first ...

By the way if you have idea's or request you can send me a mail, note 
Or just contact me ;

" Mail :  mybravestarr  @ (dot) com
mybravestarr  add the  @
and the hotmail (dot) c o m
With out space , naturally
Or send me a note on my user-name there is prudance there
Be kind and write what it's about and then we can talk some more "

Take care ^^

But thought way not , it's good to have some extra

The Yamato badges I have been looking for a time .
So I were vary happy to get the two  ^^

Helpful links II

I thought there were time to do a update on my early blog topic : Helpful-links
It's have a been a time now , and probably need a update

This is tips, what I can  recommend more safe, legal shop, Stores were I shop from

But I have some link to store,shop that I haven't try yet
Like the different Middlemen and those marks with * 

I made a list back at the of 2006 and still working on legal, trustful site, shops
More the places that I myself shop, bid on
Just those places I can recommend
And the store, shop's that I'm are on time to time.
Checking up on ginga items, manga's and so one 

This list is just to give other idea's were to look, seek
I most do a " dvd & vhs list "as well soon I guess  

I will update the list , when time are given


Useful Links & Site's 

To know the price on items you probably need a converter to check the price
Here are some converter site you can take a look at

Forex Bank converter                                                                                                          
- Chose to: English, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish language.
 XE - converter                                                                                                                                                   
- Language English.
Good way to see the different money converter when you thinking to bid or shop. 

Also why not have tip on site here you can check the different time zones in the world

 - Look what time it's in other country's. 
Helpful when you want to bid on auctions 

 World time Zone                                                                                                                  
- Also a site there you can check what time time is now and the time changes
For example Japan or America 

Payment ways ;


Well some site take credit cards other use paypal.
It safe and easy to use if you shop from store outside your country
But more and more use Paypal now days.


 If you want too bid on the Japanese action site for example :
There is a good idea to use a Middlemen.
With Middlemen  it's means there are companies who can bid for you.
If that about auction, shopping at a Japanese store and so one. 
And here are some of the list  you can check look up:

Shopping Mall Japan
White Rabbit Express


When it comes to to most findings when it come to item's, merchandise
