In the future, a junior high student, Kusakabe Sakura, will offend God by inventing immortality so that women will stop aging after they turn twelve. Dokuro-chan is an angel from the future sent to kill him. However, Dokuro-chan thinks that Sakura can be spared, so her idea is to constantly occupy Sakura so that he will never be able to invent the technology. Sometimes the angel will go crazy and kill him with her bat, Excalibolg, but she can revive him easily. "Pi-piru-piru-piru-pi-piru-pi!"

Well I thought long and hard before deciding to sit down and actually write a review on this anime. As you can see I am not a fan. When I sat down to view this series it was partially because I had seen references to it in other shows I had watched and a friend had recommended it telling me how funny he thought it was. I looked it up and thought the characters looked cute and was intrigued by the alt title "Club to Death Angel" ... hmm what was that about? God, how I wish I that I read more

Bizarre, violent, mostly nonsensical...but incredibly funny. I liked this for the same reason I liked FLCL and Azumanga Daioh. FLCL had a deeper story (yes, there was one...watch it again) and Azumanga Daioh had greater character development, but Dokuro-chan has a charm all it's own...not to mention lots of blood. The parody of the "magical girl" element really adds something. I never cared for those types (Sailor Moon annoys me, no matter what language it's in), but here, it's funny.

The visuals and sound were really well done considering how short the series is, but then, that's just how series like this work. Short, but high-quality read more

I'll start by stating my opinion of the anime directly. It sucks. No, I'm not just a flamer, or a crude one-line-reviewer, but it’s true. My first advice to all of the people who read this review: do not watch this anime unless you... 1) Are absolutely *desperate* for a brainless comedy, 2) Do not care one whit about storyline, or 3) Are a brave person who wants to plunge into the unknown despite my fervent warnings to the contrary.

First, and quite possibly most importantly, the storyline. A quote from MyAnimeList.net's description:

"Problem is, Dokuro is very temperamental, and is constantly killing Sakura (and read more

Dokuro-chan is one of the most infamously stupid anime of the last decade. It came out in 2005 and raised eyebrows with its heavy use of gore, painfully unfunny attempts at humor, insanely obnoxious characters, and sheer failure at being a "magical girl" genre parody. Dokuro-chan is like the poor man's version of Excel Saga or FLCL. Actually, the show it reminds me of most of all is Panty and Stocking, but Gainax had nothing to do with Dokuro believe it or not.

Story and characters: 1/10

Oh dear GOD! The plot is that a pathetic, squirming male protagonist is on the brink of discovering a read more

Anime: Dai Mahou Touge
These series are incredibly similar in their quirky humor, particularly in the way they inject the whole cutesy magical girl stereotype with plenty of gore and brutality. If you like one, you'll surely like the other.

Anime: Sora no Otoshimono
Chaotic, funny and silly shows where weird things happen. The boy has to deals with angel-like girls. These girls cohabit with him, and strange things happen all the day.

Anime: Heppoko Jikken Animation Excel♥Saga
Whacky comedy in which a hyper female lead brings constant chaos to each and every frame: the description fits Excel Saga as well as Bokusatsu Tenshi. Both are very colourful, loud productions in which characters die and are brought back to life, repeatedly, even. The humour in both relies on shoutouts to other anime and popular culture in general and they have the same feeling of plot-less over the top fun aimed at a more mature audience.

Anime: Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?
I was immediately reminded of Dokuro-chan. Both male characters get brutally beat up by innocent looking girls and tons of crazy and funny things happen :)

Anime: FLCL
Crazy female leads give hell to teenager boys, FLCL and Bokusatsu Tenshi take this basic formula and deliver two of the most outlandish comedies in the history of any medium. Odd and energy filled, these series storm their way through a series of rapid scenes, using bright colours and an outstanding animation in FLCL's case. In both there is a whacky coming of age story as these frenetic anime pile references to several of the most frequent archetypes in entertainment in general and anime in particular.

Anime: Puni Puni☆Poemii
Puni Puni Poemy and Bokusatsu Tenshi are a perfect match. Both are oddball comedies with hyperactive heroines running amok with plenty of ecchi moments thrown in for good measure. They have a rather tenuous plot that is compensated by a constant gag-fest that mocks anime clichés, mainly the magical girl genre in PPP and harem series in BT.
