If its premise is any indication, Dendrobates is incredibly simplistic. It's hard to call it woefully underwhelming when it does not setup much expectation from the onset.

The overarching plot does leave the palate a bit unsatiated, because it is not developed or explored in enough depth at least to this author's taste, and it's a bit predictable if you've read much seinen or watched much anime in general. That said, the episodic parts are at least diverse read more

So far this manga has surprised in me wonderful way. Even though it seems like it will have no depth at first as you progress through the initial chapters you'll find yourself pulled. There is plenty of action and just enough mystery and intrigue to keep you reading. Some may think this a Deathnote copycat but it does have it's own flavor and the main character while slightly cliched is interesting.

Vigilante getting rid of the evil on this earth by taking the law in their own hands, awesome action and badass MCs
The badass with a heart of gold protects/avenges the innocent against criminal scum
I started reading it and I never stopped until I finished the story. They are great stories with many challenges, mysteries and passions. The details keeps you intrigued. They can be essentially divided into three parts that are all developed as the story progresses.
they both got that dark seinin atmosphere going on. really epic plot for both and if you enjoyed one you will definitely enjoy the other
-Antihero protagonist
-Protagonist who working as police officer
-Protagonist who looks weak but strong behind the scenes
-Dark plot themed
-In Dendrobates, Sengawa's working alone while in Ouroboros, had two people that helping each other, Ryuzaki as a police detective and Tatsuya as a leader of Yakuza.
He has a double life as a office worker and an assassin who is skilled with many weapons.
