Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Suguri is 18 and plenty old enough to be out on her on—or so she thinks. She sets off to Tokyo, the big city, with her mutt, Lupin, to try to find her own way. When Lupin gets amorous with a stranger's purebred at a highway rest stop, Suguri sees it as the perfect opportunity to sweet-talk the dog's owner, Teppei, into letting her work at his pet store, Woofles. Suguri is like the dog whisperer; she shows an uncanny ability to know what each dog needs. She's hapless, disorganized and has no idea how to live on her own, but Teppei puts up with her as long as she uses her skill to take care of the puppies at his store. Sakuragi draws realistic but obscenely cute puppies to tell the stories of Suguri's adventures in the big city, from chasing down a missing Corgi pup to learning to let go when the dogs are sold. Suguri is adorable, Teppei is charmingly put out by his new employee, and Teppei's loafer friend, Kentaro, is around to provide a bit of comic relief. Inubaka is a sweet if scatological story about characters who are all crazy for dogs. (Feb.)

Format: Paperback
This comic series is goofy, silly, and unreasonably entertaining. Somehow it manages to be better than the sum of its parts. If you like both dogs and comedy, you will probably love it - it has a very wide appeal.

In each volume, Sugiru meets someone who needs her help, usually because they come into the pet store where she works. Their problems seem to revolve around dogs, but usually they go far deeper than that. While helping them with their dog problems, Sugiru often changes their life in the process, often maturing a bit herself along the way.

Unlike many manga series involving animals, Inubaka is also surprisingly accurate when it comes to dogs.

The episodic nature of the series makes it more enjoyable because it's easy to read, have fun, and then put down. This is the most enjoyable manga I've read in a long time!

The Inubaka series is fantastic, a lot of fun. Truly one of the best manga out there. It's a great idea, stories about pet owners. Initially I wondered what could really be done with that, but the series has shown a fun variety of tales (tails?). The art is great, with Suguri (the main character) being especially cute. Book six is especially good, with some great scenes. I wish more manga was as good as this book. I think pet owners will get even more enjoyment out of it, as you see some familiar pet antics. Highly recommended.

Inubaka is a great manga for dog lovers. It is hilarious, cute, and exciting. Inubaka is about Suguri a girl, and her mutt Lupin. She seems to have a special connection with dogs. That is why she was hired at The Woofles Pet Shop. She is a bit quirky, but she is fun! This is a great manga, probably for kids 13+. Hope I helped.

Are you crazy for dogs? This manga is for you!

The art is clear, easy to read, and well-drawn. The story is enjoyable and absolutely adorable, I am seriously enjoying it so far. I was burned out on manga for years, then I picked this up on a whim in the bookstore and was immediately won over by the charming art. This book doesn't over-glamorize the pet industry either, or try to unreasonably anthromorphize the dogs, which I truly appreciate as a canine aficionado. I recommend it!
