Have you ever been in a situation where you had to protect someone from being attacked by an unknown monster? Well, if you’re a part of the Night Class at Cross Academy then it’s just another day.

It’s not every day that you see such extraordinary beings like werewolves walking around in public. These wolf demon hybrids are pretty hot and fierce!

Here are the top 10 most popular werewolf characters from Japanese comics:

10. Ryuusui Seiran

From the manga series “Chrono Crusade” by Daisuke Moriyama, Ryuusui Seiran is a character that is able to transform into a giant dragon-like creature. The only catch is that he cannot reverse this transformation on his own; he needs an exorcist to do it for him. Otherwise, he’d be stuck as a monster forever! He’s also quite the ladies’ man, which explains why he makes it on this list.

9. Kaname Kuran

Kaname Kuran is one of the main characters from “Vampire Knight” by Matsuri Hino. She can transform into a giant wolf with wings and has black hair and red eyes when in her human form. She also has teeth that are sharp enough to cut through

I have been a huge fan of manga for a long time, and one of my favorite things about it is the way it can take you on such an amazing journey. Whether it be a fantasy adventure or something more serious, from the brightest colors to the darkest tones, manga really has it all. But one of the most amazing things about this medium are the many incredibly powerful werewolves that have graced our screens to date. I love watching these characters in action, and so I’ve compiled this list of the top 10 greatest werewolves in manga!

Hello, my name is Suzume Yosano. I am a full time manga artist and creator of the popular series: “Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria” and “Ningen Shikkaku”.

My main works are dark fantasy, but I have created many different genres within this theme. Works that feature human beings gaining supernatural abilities, becoming monsters and fighting against one another is the central theme of my creations. The great popularity of these works both in Japan and overseas is due to the highly realistic art style and the emotional story lines.

The realistic art style is created by focusing on the characters psychological states at each particular moment in time. A character’s eyes help us to understand what kind of emotional state they are in; whether it be anger, joy or fear. The characters are drawn with detail that brings out their true nature. This is a trademark of my work and something that I am known for among fans of Japanese comics and animation.*

Today, I would like to introduce you to some of my most popular characters and their stories of becoming monsters. 

This list contains my top 10 favorite werewolf characters/creatures from manga/anime.* The list contains both one-off characters as well as recurring ones so please enjoy them

The top ten list is below. The order of the list has been determined through a poll conducted by the author, who polled several friends and contacts to get their opinion on the matter.

10) Akira Yoshida – Demon Beast Invasion (Shonen Jump)

Akira Yoshida is a character from an ongoing series produced by Shueisha called “Demon Beast Invasion”, which has yet to be translated into English. Akira is a high school student who, after being bitten by a wolf, becomes a monster and must deal with his new found powers while protecting his friends.

The dramatic change in appearance that Akira undergoes when he transforms into a werewolf is what initially makes him unique compared to other characters on this list. Yoshida’s art style changes drastically when illustrating Akira in this form, making him look more like an animal than human. In addition, Akira’s power allows him to take on the powers of other werewolves that he has defeated; he can even merge with them.

The author of this series, Takayuki Yamaguchi, also created another popular werewolf manga series called “Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.” This shows just how talented he really is as an artist.

9) Ren – Wolf’s Rain (Se

What makes a good werewolf?

To my mind, the most important quality of a good werewolf is not ferocity or speed, but intelligence. Werewolves are apex predators, and as such they’re smart. They have to be. They can only hunt when the moon is out, so they have to plan ahead.

One of my favorite stories in “The Saga of Darren Shan” series by Darren O’Shaughnessy revolves around a pack of werewolves who have a taste for human flesh. They plan an attack on a town, working together to draw the citizens out into the streets at nightfall, instead of staying indoors where it’s safe. Then they divide up into teams and systematically begin picking off their victims. It’s almost like a military operation. The humans don’t stand a chance against such strategy and coordination.

And I love that! I want to read about werewolves who are smart enough to think up and execute something like that!

A close second in my mind when it comes to what makes a good werewolf is social skills. A lone werewolf is always more interesting than one who is part of a pack or family, because lone wolves are always trying to find their place in human society and adapt to it. What better

Universal Pictures has announced that the film adaptation of The Wolf Man will be released on February 12, 2010. This will be Universal’s first feature length film of the classic monster since the 1941 original starring Lon Chaney Jr.

The Wolf Man was created by Curt Siodmak in 1941 as a part of his original novel The Werewolf of Paris, which was inspired by legends of the medieval beast-man. Siodmak would go on to write several other werewolf and Frankenstein stories for Universal, including 1943’s Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, which introduced Lon Chaney Jr.’s Larry Talbot to Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein Monster.

Towards the end of WWII and after seeing newsreel footage of Mussolini being executed by partisans, Siodmak was inspired to write The Wolf Man as a metaphor for Nazi Germany. He would later say that this was his favorite story that he had written.

The Wolf Man spawned three sequels: The Return of the Wolf Man in 1945, House of Frankenstein in 1948 and House of Dracula in 1955. In these films, Larry Talbot is portrayed by Lon Chaney Jr., Bela Lugosi (in his final performance) and Ralph Bellamy respectively. Larry Talbot would appear one last time in 1981
