For anyone who has missed this gradually growing thing over the last 2(?) years: it started from one of Gin’s mid-transition shots and it became a journey through Gin’s best stares.
As the character with the most overwhelming amount of lingering shots and closeups, he has had many a moment to blankly observe and judge all situations going on all the way from the ’80s. Not even GDW and the mangas themselves were spared Gin’s shameless habit of staring.

There are small but significant differences between the GNG manga and anime, and this is one I consider important. This scene takes place before Smith leads Gohee up to the mountain to help the dogs defeat Akakabuto; he was originally stubbornly going to head up there. He confesses to Cross because he assumes he’s going to die in the battle.
Smith’s just a kid- an insignificant kid weaker than all the other seemingly godly main characters that never falter to injury, abandon the idea of what’s right, or back down. The idea that he had the courage to confess to the “wife” of a perfect hero like Ben is amazing, let alone knowing he never stood a chance to begin with. I think he really loved Cross too, because he never had kids.
Why not mix 80’s anime? This is Ai wo Torimodose, Hokuto no Ken’s first Japanese opening.

Hmm… I always felt like Kagetora’s introduction in the manga was hinting at something
Going through Ginga Seiken and I don’t know why this is a question but
"Q. 30: Who is decidedly the strongest dog?
A. 30: Riki!”
So what is Riki?
He is greatest threat!
My attempts to start off the year with a picture of the small change in my Ginga collection have been foiled by a tiny dog butt that enjoys messing up my room, so I opted for a
very cluttered looking shelf update instead
It’s close to another anniversary of me starting my Ginga collection, and I hope it continues to grow, even if it’s slowly. My first items were volumes 5-10 of 3rd edition GNG. I don’t like showing these volumes off (except fucking volume 8, I shove Riki in everyone’s face) because they’re a bit worn out and they have some embarrassing attached to them. I was much younger and so happy about having them that I took them with me everywhere like every damn day.
