When I was about 12 years old my friend called me and said that he had borrowed a movie called "Silver Fang", well that sounded nice and I went to my friend's house. Then when I saw the cover of the VHS I thought: "Oh no, it's a Japanese animation!", I've never liked that. But I gave it a try and me and my friend watched it. And OH MY GOD! I couldn't take my eyes of the telly! We watched all the 4 parts (it was the cutted version) in a row! It had it all; a cool story, different main characters than ordinary mangas (dogs), romance, blood & gore, sadness etc. I recommend these series to EVERYONE! If you haven't watched it, watch it NOW! Every night for two weeks after I watched Silver Fang I lied in my bed and just couldn't get my mind off it, I wanted to see it again! Sooooo beautiful..... 10/10. I would give it more, even an Oscar!
