"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 ; )

Yamato Magazines + extra

Remember the early blog about: Yamato the Great 
I got hold one some of the magazines with the Yamato ^^
I really like this series and have most of the manga edition.
But it a harder challenge to find those magazines the series were first published in .
And those magazines are way large with page then the Weekly Jump magazines. 
So Shiroi Senshi Yamato were one of the long series about a dog as a main character,
by Yoshihiro Takahashi.
The series started in the year 1976 and ended in 1989 .

I got hold on following magazines ;
 Monthly Shōnen Jump
- 1979, issue 2
There are 462 pages total 
One color page (chapter page) and 38 pages with Yamato
I got this one from YahooJapan auction  for 800 yen (without shipping)

- A other one from 1979, issue 20
The magazine are called ?: Super Jump.  
I'm a bit unsure about this one .
* The seller I got this one from ( Four month ago) had mark this one as Yamato story.
I haven't thought more about this, until now ^^ 
And I got this one on YahooJapan for 600 yen (without shipping)
Seem that I got a great price
There are a colored cover , 5 color pages.
16 red/grey/white/black colors pages, 13 blue/white pages
If we summary up , there are 34 pages, in total the magazine have 602 pages. 

Monthly Shōnen Jump 
-  1984, issue 5
This is a special anniversary edition called : Thanks 100th anniversary
In total the magazine have 528 pages 
There are in total 53 pages with the series of Yamato.  And the first page/chapter start with a color page of Yamato series, then 4 colored pages .
But the special with this edition isn't the facts that that Yamato is on the cover.
It's the big double side poster inside the magazine.
The poster are 74, 5 cm long and 6,5 cm wide.
And at one side you can see Yamato his master and friend & his brother running.
At the other side there are different attack technique and date (year/date) for the Yamato's life.
You can also see friends,opponent that Yamato have to meet during the manga series.  

The first page/chapter start with a color page of Yamato series.
Then 4 colored pages .
But there are also a add for Yamato items and a page with questionings about the series.
I guess you could win the items if you answer right and send the answer for the competition.
This seems to be from a Anniversary (according to Monthly Jump)
Please don't use the image without approve from me
I hope to have the opportunity to get on hold on more magazines with Yamato series.
For those magazine are intresting to study .
Just the early drawing by Yoshihiro Takahashi are way beautiful to see.
But you also see some roots and inspiration  from Yamato for the most well know manga & anime series  :
Ginga Nagareboshi Gin 

This magazine I got from a privet seller 
I guess this one are one that I pay a high price on, but I can't remember how hight right now


* A bit of update 
Thank for the note about this one  ^^


Hope you have a great Christmas  and a good new year ^^ 

I'm so sorry to not have been so active as I would like .
I had problem with the scanner/printer aswell with my digital camera.
Both of them are old and I planning to get new ones later this year.

But also I have been stressed out , especially in December.
And the thing with travel to see family and friends have also taken up time.
So I guess the energy when low or more a less away when it came to write here.
But that are also a bit frustrating , especially when you have many plans, projects for the blog.
Also the negative energy I got some community, people, that I just want to take a small break form everything from the net.
Good Quote to think on ^^
And then the pc game : The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Sure this one have taken up my time .
Since I interested in role playing, myth, history and fantasy .

Sometime you need a small break from life, and the the imagination, the fantasy grow more.
And get more inspiration ,with playing a great game 
But this give a break and soon you get more ideas to what to write about.

I promise  this will change soon.
I have projects that I working on and planning to do some update on previous blog that I have made.  Also that thing I have plan to work one.

So I most say thank you dear readers.
My dear friends that have support me
And the new people who send the mail, talking, asking and give me ideas and inspiration to blog more.
