My thoughts about this anime is that it's badass, weird, funny and mixed with different stuff, it's really fun to watch interesting but bad side its very short and there's no second season, also it doesn't go that much its basically a quick fast paste story unlike others where in here it's just one episode for each character and it summarize the whole thing. I'd say who ever wanted to explore more of this anime most likely there'll be no second season, so Manga is probably is the best gateway.
Yah overall sometimes to make a great anime doesn't mean that it always gotta be long ...

This is fundamentally a panel-by-panel, frame-by-frame remake of the manga book Dogs: Stray Dogs Howling in the Dark, which is part 0 of the manga series Dogs: Bullets and Carnage.

Short version: Just read the manga. You don't have to read the whole series, just the one volume. The art is fierce, active, and evocative. And while each of the 4 short stories varies quality, they weave together into a powerful whole.

As I said, these OVAs are frame by frame from the manga. Some of the drawings are literally the exact drawings from the manga. Except the art/animation quality of the OVAs is very poor, and ...
