Kodansha Comics has announced an upcoming title I’m excited by, Manga Dogs. That’s their English title for GDGD-DOGS by Ema Toyama. Her previous works I Am Here! and Missions of Love have already been released in English.
Manga Dogs is the story of three wannabe manga artists (all pretty boys) with “ridiculous delusions” about the craft. Their classmate Kanna is already published, so they fixate on her to teach them in their school’s drawing class. Kodansha calls it a “sharp-witted satire of the manga world”. Perhaps a little inside baseball, a manga about making manga, but I liked Bakuman, and Manga Dogs is only three volumes.
