Re: Dogs: Bullets & Carnage

I read all the volumes a week ago and I love it. The style, the story, the characters they're all awesome. The only bad thing is, that we have to wait a month T_T.
By the way; there's a volume from four years ago as well. Dogs: Stray dogs howling in the dark

I'm about halfway through what chapters are scanlated, and I love it! Heine is so cool (*_*), and the fight scenes and art in general is great. Definitely going to catch up soon.

Yes Dogs is one volume and is a prequel about four different stories of the four chracters that are playing in dogs: bullets and carnage. Then there's a one volumes side story dogs (and something with twins don't remember exactly).

Dogs: bullets and carnage is the ongoing serie serialized in ultra jump. Atm 21 chapters has been released and let's hope that after a none-released july chapter - chapter 22 will be released in this month's ultra jump

Dogs Bullets and Carnage

Ok, This thread is for the discussion of the manga Dogs Bullets and Carnage.
Personally I think this manga gets constantly overshadowed by all the shonen mangas even though I think this manga is really great and the character development is amazing.

Perhaps I'm missing a beat but I think this manga is lousy. I can see what it's trying to do but it does it so badly. Panels filled with constant action, but you tend to have to look five times just to make it out. the story-line is a mess that is harder to follow due to such little dialogue and when it does show up, it's incredibly convoluted to the point you can tell the author feels taxed to include it. no matter how hard i try, i find it impossible to rate this manga.

I agree. There is a good manga lurking behind the action, the author chooses not to explore it. The characters are interesting and likable, the framework of the plot is interesting. Unfortunately the plot has just been an excuse for gun fights, I heap the same criticism on Dogs as people do for so much shonen; all action, only enough plot development to lead to the next fight. Fewer than 20p. per month really hurts continuity as well.

It's a monthly series right? I mean the chapters are so small and inconsistent, plus constant breaks. It has a great art style and characters though.

Yea, I gotta agree the story does have too much mindless violence and gun fights. If the chapters were longer this manga would probably be more popular, but the characters are really interesting and I just really like it.

I've been dying to know something about Bishop and Heine.
They have the same last name, as we all know. Does that mean they're related by blood? I mean, Ernest did call Heine 'brother'... IMO Ernest's too young to be Heine's father, so... No solid facts were presented yet, but that's kinda natural conclusion based on dramatic scene with Bishop revealing his name and then their little fight with Heine.

I don't think they're related by blood. They're brothers by the fact that they were both "born" from the same experiments.

This is an awesome series, this is one of the only gunslinger mangas (2 my knowledge) and the action scenes are great, personally I think that the story-line and history/interconnections of the characters makes up for any minor negatives like chapter length

I don't think they're related by blood. They're brothers by the fact that they were both "born" from the same experiments.
The bishop is so cool, I'm sure his back-story would be one to watch.
carnt wait for chapter 48

The explosion was a nice climax to the arc. Nice and heart stopping. I guess the invasion of the surface is next. I miss the twins, hopefully they'll return soon.
