When Ukyo rescues a stray dog, he soon learns that he may have made a rare find. His new dog , who he's named Kuro, can talk! And if that's not crazy enough, soon Kuro is able to magically transform into a human! With his dog now taking the form of a hot man and licking him in various places, what is Ukyo to do?! From the artist of Wild Rock comes Man's Best Friend! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Including short stories:
Goldfish Princess, Summer's Here Again, and Pinpoint Lovers.
This manga contains 3 seperate stories (though they have similar characters). The first one concerns Ukyo, a student who takes in a stray dog. But this is no ordinary dog; he can talk, transform into a human, and to top it off, he has a big crush on Ukyo. How will Ukyo react to his new 'pet'? (3 Chapters)
Next we have two friends separated at childhood and reunited 10 years later over summer break. What will they think of each other? What will Ken do when he finds out his childhood crush isn't the girl he remembered, but in fact a guy with an atitude? (2 Chapters)
The third story is about Keisuke, a guy who saves a goldfish at a fair. But there's something special about this fish, it's a guy! (1 Chapter)
I liked this manga. The stories were well put together. Although the goldfish one seemed a bit off, more so than the dog one. What was the difference? I guess the dog at least turned into a fairly hot guy whereas the goldfish looked too feminine for my liking.
The middle story was by far the best of the bunch though. It had some good character development as well as good yaoi. I think the whole manga was worth that story.
The yaoi in all the stories was good, good situations, good reactions and good drawing. More explicit than I've previously seen, but I've been told there are more explicit ones out there.
There could have been more to this manga though, all the stories are interesting (even the werid ones) and I could happily read more of the first two. It annoyed me as well that the stories did not have names (apart from the first one), they had chapter titles but no story name. Grrrrr
Anyway, this is a nice little manga, if you don't mind short one off stories and a bit of weirdness. Man's best Friend is a unique senario and an interesting read. Theres a lot of sex which is always good in yaoi, and if the weird stories do bug you the manga is worth buying for the sweetness of the middle story. So if you have the spare cash or a friend who owns it, give it a read.
