Format: Paperback
'Read Dogs!' My friends on GoodReads exclaimed. 'I'm sure you'll like it, it's a sci-fi dystopia where genetic manipulation is the norm and crime runs rampant.' I may be paraphrasing a bit, but the general consensus I've found online is that one either LOVES Dogs from head to toe and side to side, or they merely think it's okay.

I stand in-between those two camps.

I absolutely adore the setting. It's grimy, horrible, and filled with some horribly seedy characters. Then you have Haine and Badou, two badasses who are the focus of the first volume. It seems that they don't like each other at all, when in fact they work extremely well together. They rescue people, fight criminals, bite said criminals in the face (then claim it was just a peck on the cheek), and... that's about it. It's highly action based, so if you like that kind of thing, great! I was really worried after reading the first few chapters that it would devolve into action scene after action scene, but every now and again, a little golden nugget of plot shone through.

And this little chunk of plot was enough to keep me going. I would be reading action scene after action scene, and then my interest was piqued. Normally I would have complained about this emphasis on action over storyline, but Dogs' setting is interesting enough to keep me going. In fact, it's a lot like Nitro+Chiral's visual novel/anime Togainu no Chi. Dark dystopia where crime is an everyday occurrence? Check. Plenty of action scenes? Check. Badass main characters? Check. But of course, that's where the similarities end. (Togainu no Chi does apparently translate to 'Blood of the Reprimanded Hound, though. Heh.

HASH(0x8d5f9ee8) out of 5 stars Artful Carnage 4 Dec. 2009
By M. Elliott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After seeing that the only review on this book was left by someone complaining of it being confusing after reading it, but not the first book in the series, I felt I needed to give my two cents. You can't start watching a movie in the middle then complain that you don't know what's going on. So, let me first stress that even though this is labeled "1" it is not the first book in the series, it is the second, the first is "0".

When you first meet the main characters in Volume 0 you learn about them and a bit of their back-stories but not how they're connected. In this volume that process starts. You have Mihai, the retired assassin. Naoto, a sword wielding girl who's searching for her parents killer. Heine, a genetically altered killer with a bloody past and a deep fear of women. And Badou, a nicotine obsessed informant and Heines occasional partner in crime.

The story is interesting and leaves you wanting more. The art is clean and the fight scenes are pure brilliance. Unique and flowing they offer a clear play by play of the action, not the incomprehensible "page vomit" you get in some manga.

I've found myself addicted after only these two volumes and am eagerly awaiting the next release.

HASH(0x8d5f9f3c) out of 5 stars Amazing Series. 30 Jun. 2011
By Dojo Master - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dogs is an amazing manga though unless you've read the prequel series then you won't understand much in this volume. The art is amazing and the story once understood is similarly astounding.The only flaw might be it's lack of characterization though even this makes it better as it gives characters a mysterious persona.

I haven't read the entire volume 1 yet, but I don't need to in orde to tell you that this is a good series to pick up. The line art is very well done, action sequences are extremely interesting, and the story so far is very interesting. Definitely give this series a try.
