Dogs: Bullets & Carnage is Japan's version to Frank Millers Sin City.

From riveting gunplay, the art of swords slashing, to the background stories of each lead character which intermingle with each other, Dogs: B&C is a manga which is eye candy to any fan who is into the action/seinen genre.

I had first come across this manga through watching Dogs: Stray Dogs Howling in the Dark(an OVA which I highly recommend you see if you'd like further background to each character in the Dogs Universe and also a prequel to this manga). The OVA got me curious to reading this manga, and I'm glad read more

"Living in a city filled with a diverse population, but only a select few know about its underground secrets, gun-blazing and blade action, deep backgrounds, and oh yeah battle crazy twin lolies."

One thing about this manga is the unique art style by Shirow Miwa and great action panels.

As I read along I got to know each of the main charectars history and figure why and how they came to be. So as a reader you can connect their relationships and their goals.

If you enjoy action, a bit of humor, and mystery. Read Dogs: Bullets & Carnage, also there is Dogs the one shot read more

Dogs: Bullets & Carnage

Do you have manga that you would call the best one you have read till now? I do.

Dogs :B&C created by Miwa Shirow is in my opinion something different than any other manga I have read until now. It is very climatic, dark, distinctive s-f series with its own unique style. It has absolutely extraordinary art. And I really mean it.

Story concentrates on 4 main characters: Haine, Naoto, Badou and Mihai. Every single one of them has inseparable connection with the place where the this history takes place- underground city where you can find various kinds of read more

A solid seinen with a well gripping story that's also different from others. What more could I ever ask for, right?

Spoilers ahead!
Dogs: Bullets & Carnage, a manga where the story seems so very simple. ...in actuality, when you get far enough, it can confuse you. That's how complex it can get and it's not loopholes or anything of that sort. It's the kind of story that confuses you and makes sense when things are revealed later. At first it's pretty linear, and then what's this? Plot twists? A lot of them? Secrets being revealed? Oh what are its readers to do. DBC follows Haine, a read more

Both Black Lagoon and Dogs: Bullets & Carnage (and it's prequel, Dogs) have great action sequences, cutting edge art, and a cast of interesting and colorful characters. Both have characters that make a living out of shady, if not illegal work, and awesome gunslingin' action. In between all this gritty fighting, both series have time for refreshing humor. Although Dogs: Bullets & Carnage has more of a serious, gloomy overtone, I highly recommend it for anyone who likes Black Lagoon, and visa versa. Plus, both series have creepy, eerily cute, homicidal twins. Now who can resist that?
Even though there are only a few chapters of Gangsta ist pretty similar. characters are similar. eyepatchys that smoke to much- there almost identical.
Although the setting is an unnamed (and probably fictional) city, Dogs: Bullets & Carnage has a European atmosphere similar to Gunslinger Girl. Both titles have plenty of blades and bullets flying around but have considerable amounts of drama and character development give the readers a balanced diet of style AND substance.
I picked up Dogs Bullets and Carnage to replace the hole Togainu no Chi left when Tokyo Pop shut down. It was exactly what I needed. Lots of action going on, loveable characters, engaging plot. And of course plenty of mystery surrounding the main character and his strange abilities. Both are set in a sort of post-apocalyptic setting, include run down cities, mysterious organizations, human modifications. The main characters carry some similarities, but unlike Akira, Heine has a bit of a beserker button, which is something I love. xD
Both series are heavy on characters with dark/angsty backstories, blood and death, stylized violence, and general crazy-awesome badassery. They have a very similar feel to them.
While the plots aren't very similar they both have a lot of psychological themes and probably shouldn't be read by somebody who is faint of heart. Sidooh is about two brothers struggling to survive and become samurai while DBC is about four people who's lives are somehow interconnecting with the same underground organization
