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.

Warning: unless you're a fan of the series K, you're probaly wondering what the hubbub is all about. Otherwise, enjoyable short volume that deals with the backstory of Kuroh Yatogami aka Black Dog and how he found Shiro in episode one. Along the way, we discover how he obtained his sword, some brief flashbacks of his life with his master before his master passed away and more importantly, how exactly he came about on how he met Shiro.

Spoiler Alert: There's some cameos from other characters as well: Big Guy that hung with Yata appears in chapter 3 and Totsuka appears in 4.

Overall, I liked this ...

Mixed Feelings
I once read that all anime (and manga by extension) is derivative. This shouldn't be shocking for most anime fans, as often times they will see the same plot points and character types get recycled and re-interpreted again and again. So, it should come as no surprise that K: Stray Dog Story is a derivative work. Yet, I'll go even further to say that K:SDS is a derivative of a derivative of a derivative- there is a lot you have to understand about the world of K and the world of anime and manga before you can fully enjoy this manga. ...
