[manga] Stray Dog Story ~ 0159
Series: Stray Dog Story
Author/Circle: Miyazawa Tatsuki & Minato Saki
Notes: This is a first for us, as to the best of our knowledge, this manga won’t have any BL to it whatsoever, but we’re still confident it’ll be a good read! This is Stray Dog Story, one of the manga offshoots of the currently uber-popular anime K Project. This manga will follow Yatogami Kuroh, who you’ll know from the anime as the cool, culinarily-talented young modern-age samurai of sorts who’s out to slay Isana Yashiro, starting just a short while before the anime starts and continuing on from there. You’ll learn more about Kuroh’s past, his relationship with his master, and hopefully in the future, more on his quest and how he reconciles his perceived duty to kill Shiro with the strange, quirky relationship they share.
You don’t have to have seen the anime to understand this…but it’ll be about 10 times more interesting if you have! (and if you haven’t started watching K Project yet, believe me you’re missing an amazing show that any slash fangirl or fanboy would be well served to watch! We wouldn’t be picking up this series if there weren’t a good chance of some ‘special relationships’ popping up ;))
Apologies in advance for the largeish file size (we made it as small as possible–but there were several large color images included and it’s a quite long chapter as well) as well as the crappy scan quality. The pages themselves are little better than newsprint in this magazine, and while we’re working on ways to improve the quality in the future, we’re choosing to share this now and possibly come back with improved scans later on.
Summary: Yatogami Kuroh has lost the only thing remotely close to family he had left–and to make matters worse, he’s been charged with a final task by his master that he isn’t entirely sure he’ll be able to fulfill. Follow this young modern-era samurai as he sets off on a quest to track down the next Colorless King and determine if he’s evil or not…and to strike him down where he stands if he is.
