But when a beautiful classmate is caught in a warehouse fire, he discovers a mysterious power: he can transform into a furry dog with an oversized revolver and a zipper down his back. He saves the girl's life, sharing his secret with her. But she's searching for the sister who killed her family, and she doesn't care how degrading it gets: she will use Shuichi to accomplish her mission... (Source: Kodansha Comics)

That is one sexy silhouette

And that's all I need to see
There's quite a lot of nudity in this, so hopefully they keep it.

my god, the manga is just.. wtf is author doing? this series is complete train wreck, gory, and heavy fanservice.. this is way more insane than killing bites and the character is soo apathetic...shame i like his previos works, but this is just not my thing.. unless this got same amount of censorship as terra formers, idon't know how it can even aired on tv.. netflix is probably best options tho.


Thank's for the information, now i know to definitely skip this.

Hmm I have to say the female MC manipulating the male MC certainly has my interest... will add this.

Sounds weird but interesting. I'll try it.

To be honest the synopsis might be interesting but I also am getting somewhat of a weird vibe from it. But the staff looks competent enough.

The manga isn’t in a place where i think it can have a satisfying ending. So i think it’ll be an anime exclusive ending

Seems so cool sure I will see it!

That is one sexy silhouette

And that's all I need to see

Looks like a cool revenge story. But I'm intrigued about the word 'degrading', my ecchi senses are tingling.

Gleipnir Datto?

Well let's hope production goes smoothly with Pine Jam considering what happened with Just Because.

Now this is an unique synopsis! Attack on Titan - furry animals version. I'm already intrigued, can't wait for its release!

I was wondering what Pine Jam was doing. They might be able to really shine with this one.

I really don't know what to say about this, on one hand it sounds kinda interesting, on the other i'll wait for more information since this is a seinen and the chance of it being gorey is high, i'd rather wait then relize it's not for me like i did with Golden Kamuy and Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru.
