Synopsis

Nakajima Atsushi was kicked out of his orphanage, and now he has no place to go and no food. While he is standing by a river, on the brink of starvation, he rescues a man whimsically attempting suicide. That man is Dazai Osamu, and he and his partner Kunikida are members of a very special detective agency. They have supernatural powers, and deal with cases that are too dangerous for the police or the military. They're tracking down a tiger that has appeared in the area recently, around the time Atsushi came to the area. The tiger seems to have a connection to Atsushi, and by the time the case is solved, it is clear that Atsushi's future will involve much more of Dazai and the rest of the detectives!

Story: 7
The mangakas have set the plot up beautifully, and I, for one, can't wait for it to be set in motion. If they continue to handle it this well, it could become one of the more solid storylines I've seen

Art: 9
There's only one word to describe the art, and that word is beautiful.

Character: 6
I would love to give them a 7 (because they are interesting and well-written), but since there hasn't been much development, I have to knock them the score down a little. Of course, this is subject to change. There's only 12 chapters out after all.

Enjoyment: 8
It's easy and fun to read more

Stray dogs is the manga name that's trying to sound like a band name, and that's already a statement in itself. Its main appeal is unique story and character design that is blended with a familiar concept (power user organization fights bad guys) that seems to draw people in. Crime noir/gangster theme? check. City where anything can happen? check. Main conflict being war between groups of special power users? check. If you happen to be a fan of Durarara or Darker than Black, chances are that this manga will appeal to you.

Everybody loves TRAGIC right? The main character is not your ordinary person. He was abandoned by his parents, sent to an orphanage, the orphanage kicked him out, and the story begins with him starving to death..... he saves the life of a "SUICIDAL MANIAC" that is based off of osamu dazai. It turns out that osamu dazai (yes his name is the person who he is based off of and his ability his his best book) is a DETECTIVE of a "detective agency", which is actually a group that is made to do jobs that read more

I'd like to preface this review with the fact that I LOVE this series. I'm probably biased because it hits me right in all of the different features that I enjoy in manga. I only read it in the last few days, and it was a complete binge because I couldn't put it down. I've been reading manga for most of my life, and I think the only one I've enjoyed more was Shaman King, but this series has a long way to go, and may prove to be my favorite. I absolutely can't wait until it's licensed to be released in English.
