Not many anime have canines as main characters. And perhaps this is a good thing; Most people can relate to humans much better than animals. But what makes Ginga Nagareboshi Gin (henceforth acronymed to GNG) so engaging is the characters involved in it. The main character, Gin, starts off a loveable Akita puppy who soon grows into a teenage fighter and leader.
Other dogs get their time to shine as well; from John's acceptance of the pack to Hyena's new sense of justice.

What the anime lacks in animation it more than makes up for in story-telling and enjoyment. The immense cast of characters and the way read more

First, the story: I love the story, maybe more than you normally would, as i wasn't very old when I first watched it, and it has therefore grown really big on me.
Anyways, it the good against the evil. It has humor, ACTION, some horror elements, sorrow and a tiny bit of love. It's all about helping each other, standing together and do your best, as in many other animes.
The thing that it is all about dogs makes it all the more interesting.

ART: Ok, I'll admit - the art is really not very good. Same scenes are used over and over - for example when the read more

okay, not gonna lie, this is got to be in my top 3 animes ever, im still sort of a noob when it comes to anime, so maybe that could change, anywho, this show was amazing, it was a little different to me at first, because i have seen a lot of supernatural powers stuff, and most of this was completely realistic, the action in it is amazing, and it is very adventurous as well, it's a little stiff when it comes to comedy (there isn't too much comedy in this at all, just some minor parts) but i was okay with that because it read more

If you ask me for my generation Ginga: Nagaberoshi Gin was a phenomenon. If you ask anyone who is around their thirties about Gin they usually have some memories about it. Even those who do not watch anime at all
and that is because there were those five VHS-cassettes to blame. In my country (Finland) the most brutal and bloody scenes were censored (like the decapitation) and the anime was put together so that one episode lasted about hour and a half. I am not sure is this anime or manga very popular elsewhere but with the young finns this anime adaptation has a special place read more
