of the bloody course i know!
ginga nagareboshi gin is my favourite animeseries ever, and you'd be amazed by the fanbase it has here in finland.
first i must admit that i haven't read the manga yet, because i haven't got my hands on it.
as for ginga legend weed, i haven't read it either, but i've heard it has become somewhat odd and that takahashi just repeats his old patterns.
when i was a kid, all we had was these very poorly dubbed and insanely-cutted videotapes, but a relatively high per cent of the age group still fell in love with the series. it just was something none of us had never seen, the first touch to anime for many.
it struct like a lightning on a clear day when there was blood and slaughter everywhere in something that was promoted as children's show. and the story was captivating. many fell in love with the brave dogs and their determination that was thrusting them forward, closer to their goal.
because of the cuts a whole generation of children was left in uncertanity of what really happened.
and it wasn't until the end of the year 2003 when the uncut version with original japanese voices was finally released here, and it sure was worth the wait.
15 years of wait.
when i bought my (conveniently high-prised) 5-disc-dvd-box, it was one of the most beautiful things i've ever held in my hands.
i think i cried the whole time watching it through for the first time.
