Ginga Wiki

Buru is a minor character in Ginga Densetsu Weed and only appears in the Hōgen Arc.

He is the son of Chūtora and is the last-born brother of Buru, Shigure and Shōji. As well he is the nephew of Akatora and Kurotora and the cousin of Harutora and Nobutora.


Dodo is a gray Kai Dog with black stripes and floppy ears unlike Shōji and Shigure and has black eyes with two black stripes beneath each eye, with black-rimmed eyes.

Ginga Densetsu Weed

After Dodo's father Chūtora died, his uncle Kurotora raised him and his brothers.

As Kagetora asks his father, Kurotora, for help to take down Hōgen, Kurotora runs to Ōu to defend it together with his nephews. As Genba's soldiers are closing in on Gajō, Shōji pushes Kurotora down Gajō for Akame to lead him into safety.

Dodo gets killed by Genba's minions, and therefore does not become the brother to go to Mutsu for reinforcements. The only brother that survived and went to Mutsu was Shigure.

His body is thrown into the river by Genba and discovered by Kurotora, who brings it to a cave along with the other two brothers.

They aren't buried and are left in the cave, their decomposed bodies are found a couple of years later by Rocket, Ken and Kyōshirō during Monsoon's reign over Ōu.
