THE STORY: GORYO DOG is a seinen tournament manga based in the inner city of California’s Los Angeles and it’s Little Tokyo district. The haunted Yamato no Orochi Secondary School of Japan has traveled to L.A., bringing all the dark mystery of Japanese folklore with it. Willie Jackson, a 16-year-old street fighter, is out for revenge against the mma champion who killed his dad in the ring. In a search for power, Willie gets possessed by an inugami – a “ghost dog” – and becomes a powerful weapon in an ancient struggle; caught between warrior monks, demons, ancient prophecies, and creatures of myth, while attending a haunted high school.
THE HOOK: It’s everything you expect from tournament manga, but in the most unexpected place.
THE BUZZ: A tournament manga, like BLEACH and TENJHO TENGE, but set where different cultural myths and folk tales combine, and evolve. Heroic manga archetypes fight villains and monsters that don’t act the way they should – they’re stronger, faster, and won’t die easy. That’s GORYO DOG! A digital manga produced primarily for computers, tablets, smartphones, and (as of Ep04) in WIDESCREEN!
