Fangra 01: The Lion with no Mane
As civil war breaks out, Kouta, a young Shiba-Inu, is caught between two factions, the predators and prey, and Kouta is about to discover firsthand how drastic things have changed when two Hooven guards arrive at his doorstep.
Hooked by Page 5
Poor Kouta, his father has disappeared and tensions are running high between the hooves and the predators. He just wants to run the family teahouse like his father did since it's all he has left. By page 5 you know this is not going to be his day.
The story is your "mysterious savior shows up to save the day" but you end up being hooked in with wondering why Kouta is being pushed around in the first place, and why was the "Lion with No Mane" looking for his teahouse? I found myself intrigued by the potential stories that would likely be explained in future issues.
The art style fits with being like a Manga (except you don't have to read it right to left) in that you have very expressive characters and occasionally over the top demonstrations of strength and muscles during the fight sequence, but it fits the genre.
Besides the story writing, the dialogue fits, you won't find yourself being taken out of the story because a character says something so cheesy that it's unbelievable. You will laugh a little when one of the main characters breaks their facade for a moment, but then they're right back to being who they were.
This comic is worth picking up if you're into an intriguing story and a good fight. The only thing that will potentially disappoint you is when it ends, but that's what the next issue is for.
