"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 ; )

Update with some more links and photo 

Silver Fang, GNG Manga in Sweden II

Remember my early blog Silver Fang ;GNG manga in Swedish bookstore

The good new, small news I guess is the store Science Fiction Bokhandeln  have taken in more volumes of Ginga Nagareboshi Gin manga  (Import from Japan)
Publisher :

There is now vol 1-5 in the store : Silver Fang original 

Also here ; Aurhor ; Yoshihiro Takahashi

Sorry the site on the link is in Swedish

Well some of them to say at lest. Some volumes seems to be sold out and will be in store soon 

This can see like small deal, well if you compare to dear Finland .
Which we can say is a big when it come to Ginga, Yoshihiro Takahashi  fans 

So eve that thing goes slow here in Sweden when it come to Ginga itmes, manga, dvd's 
It's always nice to see small good things. 
Let hope  small ting will grow bigger and more manga and perhaps items of Ginga will spread

Badges & Keychain

Anttu ask me about a Yamato keychain  that she got from at auction .
Since I have some other Ginga key-chain
See, read more at here blog: Japanin paketti 
The language is in Finnish

Let's see , in April 4, 2012 I uplode some photos on ginga items :
Keychains and Badges from series Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and Ginga Densetsu Weed
But even from Ginga Densetsu Weed: Orion (badges, so far I have seen)
You can read more at : My Deviantart_ Some Ginga Merchandise

As I said at deviantart I think the three keychain, badges are charity items for what happed in 11 March , 2011. 
When tsunami hit Japan
Then there are also other badges that I have seen that are different then those on the image
For those who were made just for charity items have text on the image

But for the lets say ordinary badge's have just the text : (C) Yoshihiro Takahashi 
The others have other text on the images
I guess those with text can be from "Yokote Masuda Manga Museum" (the Akita prefecture).

If you look at the different badge's here :
Image (C)

 Then mine badge & and key-chain.
You can see one mine have Japanese text and like the others (C) Yoshihiro Takahashi

Sorry for the bad scan
There are also some are sold at the site : Creation Advance : badge

So on the key-chain then 
On the backside on the keychain it look like this :
And you see the text : PAT.PENS , PEND. PAT
Dependent on how you look

To mine collection I have got two more from ; Urumi    ( A Finnish site )
I'm so happy to have a item with the mad bear Akakabuto
He is for me the biggest, insane, but deadly villain have have seen.
And I guess got to know with Ginga Nagareboshi Gin series  

I really love to see more merchandise, items with Akakabuto and the other bears ^^
As same a other character from a other series that I like; Yamato

So a close up on the Ginga badges & keychain then  ^^
You can also see the fan made badge from my early blog : Silver Fang Dvds
With he Swedish release dvd's in the year 2007, the cover got a new look with the artist  Alice Engström , miss-collie , from Nosebleed studio
Who made the first Weed box design aswell .

I guess that fact were a bonus from me  ;  ) 

I hope to get on hold on Yamato badges and perhaps keychain  ^^
Like lucky  Anttu did
Who knows ^^

Ginga Mono

Seen that I got some mail about the Doujinshi manga (Fanmade manga) ; Ginga mono 
In the blog Ginga-update I did write about  the Ginga Mono, 
so I thought to write a bit more about this one. 

Since that a bit crazy bid war (sorry to say that)  on the auction at Japanese Yahoo (Japanese auction site) I were thinking to do a small update and just writ and add some photos.
You can get the Doujinshi manga for a low price ,by the way on this : Auction  

First it's a Japanese fan made book, Dōjinshi ,doujinshi 
Made by Yukimizake
She have also made 銀牙 mini, Ginga mini
With this booklet , man seem to be the focus with the (that some people calls) bookmarks Stickers

Let see the Ginga Mono were released in 30 December , 2012  
And the Ginga mono - mini / Ginga mini released in 29 April, 2013
You can go to her blog Yukimizake blog  or check her twitter account 

So let see some photo of  銀牙mono
Oh a large dark brown Sniper still in his bag ^^
There is the Candy waffel-packet,with what i can see this special Ginga Nagareboshi Gin Stickers      There are Morinaga boxes (GNG for the figures) with candy, chocolate candy

Some intro about the Doujinshi manga, Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and so
There are title and pages as well (as you see).
There are 20 pages , and the size on this
Doujinshi  is B6 ( 18 cm in length and 13 cm wide ) 

There is six page about the Ginga Nagareboshi Gin Figures and some face about them too .
As you see the size one some figures and nice photos ^^

I'm a bit to lazy to add more photos

It's seem to be four nice image photos on the Candy waffel-packet's
There are three large boxes and two smaller boxes for the more large Ginga Nagareboshi Gin Figures
With bags, of course
The small set of the
Ginga Nagareboshi Gin Figures came from Vending machine in Capsules, with information tag/paper.

Here you also see those "Special stickers of the Candy waffel pack"
I haven't any name for this , or what I can remember.

I just know those are rare to see as a ginga collector   
So back to "Special stickers of the Candy waffel pack", in the Doujinshi you see some of the stickers.
As well a bit small information
And a beautiful drawing ^^

I just love when a fellow fan do something creative and lovely , thank you dear Yukimizake
It's fun and great to look at the photos and see the many item's that have been release a time back
Especially when you are a collector of Ginga Nagareboshi Gin   ;  )

Ginga update

I guess it's time for me for that .
So last time I blog I made a update of the Ginga Nagareboshi Gin figures
And now I thinking to update a bit more

First of to my dear Sniper pack ; )
Here you see following Sniper figures: Large dark brown, Large silver, Large bronze, Small brown and Small bronze.
One of the Doujinshi manga (Fanmade manga) about Yoshihiro Takahashi  many work
There are characters from : Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, Shiroi Senshi Yamato, Kacchū no Senshi Gamu
and many others.
The Doujinshi are called : Yoshihiro Takahashi ☆ Collection
To Yoshihiro Takahashi  with Love

I love the art and the expression the characters have.
The  doujinshi have 50 pages and made in 1992

Then the We have Ginga Mono
It's aswell a fanmade manga there you can see images on the Ginga Nagareboshi Gin figures and cards.
The most of what
the company Morinaga release back in 1986 (and forward I guess) with the Ginga Nagareboshi Gin.
Images, photos on candy paper/ waffel-packet's, candy boxes as well the size on some GNG figures .
The Ginga Mono came out in December 2012
There are 20 pages

Both are made by : Yukimi
A fellow fan to Ginga & Yoshihiro Takahashi many work  ^^
Great beautiful work she put in both doujinshi  manga,books

So to the GNG Morinaga items that I got now
Candy paper , Morinaga, well some call it waffel-packet
It's more Candy paper with some images from the anime Ginga Nagareboshi Gin

In this case one mine it have Riki in the front and at the back Madara.
And you see the sweet Fuji image on the candy box .
At the back there is Gin and on a other side are a small image of Wilson

 Then some Ginga Nagareboshi Gin manga
 I now some people seem to be confused by this manga , with the re-remake/reprint and so one
So the first Edition came out in the year 2004  and were in Vol 1-8
And I got full set on that one ^^

The one I hunt for right now is the re-remake/reprint from 2008 
You know this one for on the front/cover of the manga you can see adds for the Ginga
Nagareboshi Gin dvd box, (the Japanese release box)
To tell the true it's one is no longer in stores and a bit hard to find.
At lest for me
I need to check which volumes I have now.
And the new one the  re-remake/reprint from 2012 ; vol 1-8    

The so called 10th anniversary of Shueisha remix.
I think this one are more easy to find and even on ebay the manga volym's show up
I have full set on that set too   
I think in all three sets  there are small  studio sheets and information about the series.
But the new one, that  re-remake/reprint from 2012 have more extra tings then the others   

 More then ?
I have some more of the Japanese magazine ;
Weekly Shonen Jump
I got those two on ebay from a very kind and fast seller

 And yes I got some Dragon Ball  card with the magazines 

And then I have a GNG Musashi figure and a Hopeanuoli poster  (from the dvd release)
But I had some problem with the camera .
So I will post that one a other time ^^

But that true I'm not dead, just have a long break from the blogs and so one.

I will do some update and some plan what I will write about .
Still I think I fell a bit behind all the plans and thing I hope to do last year.
But it's better "late then never" I guess 

A bit of update of my Ginga collection then

Reprint manga (of the 2004 edition) or more like the second reprint  from the year of 2008

I got that one from a dear friend  ^^
I will frame it . I never thought I could get one of that poster

A Large silver figure Sniper
I can't describe how I feel ... I just wow

Just brow, darkbrow and bronze ... 

But I were never convinced about that
And in the end I were right 

Well I'm don't think that I forgot anything for now ^^ 

~ Take care
