Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
The official website for the video anime adaptation of Shirow Miwa's Dogs action manga has launched with a promotional movie. (In the linked page, select the "Movie" button at the bottom.) The story takes place in a future European city where a genetically altered albino gunman, a chain-smoking mercenary, a former assassin, and a katana-wielding orphan ply their deadly trades on the streets and below the surface.
The first anime volume will ship in Japan with the fourth volume of Miwa's Dogs: Bullets & Carnage manga on May 19. The second anime volume will ship with the Dogs - Stray Dogs Howling in the Dark manga volume on July 17. Viz Media announced at Comic-Con International last July that it is translating the manga for release in North America next month. Shueisha publishes the manga in Japan in Ultra Jump magazine.
