Volume 1


Kanna Tezuka is a serious 15-year-old manga artist, already being published as a pro. So when she finds out her high school is starting a manga drawing course, even she gets excited. But it's a fiasco! The teacher is useless, and the only other students—three pretty-boy artist wannabes—quickly adopt Kanna as their (unwilling) sensei. But they all have ridiculous delusions about being an artist, and if Kanna can't bring them back down to Earth, she'll never get any work done!

Manga Dogs

Pretty boys doing pretty stupid things.

Read the sentence above again. Now, do you want to waste your time on pretty boys doing stupid things?

Most of the comedy part only comes after the 1st volume. So you have to endure 1 volume of pretty boys doing pretty stupid things.

I appreciate the depiction of the manga industry, how mangakas suffer each night, struggles of being an author whilst being a student. But please, remove the stupid pretty boys doing pretty stupid things.

Would I recommend you to read this? No, unless you like to see pretty boys doing pretty stupid things.

Okay GDGD dogs is probably one of my favorite manga. My parents bought the first book for me fit Christmas seeing it was the first manga book they saw. But boy am I happy they did. Before I start let me just say thus is not meant for someone new to the world of manga and anime you should at least now what moe,yaoi and shonen jump are if you want to understand the jokes.

Does not really have a story and for the most part you could start with really any chapter and still understand most of it.
I loved the art I read more

GDGD DOGS is a lighthearted manga, focussing mostly on the humour aspects of the characters and plot.

The main character, Tezuka Kanna, is a mangaka who just had her debut. Her character design is really similar to the other main females of the same artist, but her hair sets her apart and almost expresses her character. She has bangs that completely cover her eyes, and because of her dedication to her work and her lack of social skills, it seems to fit.

The other main characters, the 3 males, are all bishies essentially, and it is used as a running gag throughout the manga.
