Synopsis

Hole—a dark, decrepit, and disorderly district where the strong prey on the weak and death is an ordinary occurrence—is all but befitting of the name given to it. A realm separated from law and ethics, it is a testing ground to the magic users who dominate it. As a race occupying the highest rungs of their society, the magic users think of the denizens of Hole as no more than insects. Murdered, mutilated, and made experiments without a second thought, the powerless Hole dwellers litter the halls of Hole's hospital on a daily basis.

Possessing free access to and from the cesspool, and with little challenge to their authority, the magic users appear indomitable to most—aside for a few. Kaiman, more reptile than man, is one such individual. He hunts them on a heedless quest for answers with only a trusted pair of bayonets and his immunity to magic. Cursed by his appearance and tormented by nightmares, magic users are his only clue to restoring his life to normal. With his biggest obstacle being his stomach, his female companion Nikaidou, who runs the restaurant Hungry Bug, is his greatest ally.

Set in a gritty world of hellish design, Dorohedoro manages a healthy blend of comedy and lightheartedness with death and carnage. Taking plenty of twists and turns while following the lives of Hole's residents, it weaves a unique world of unearthly origin and dreary appearance not for the squeamish or easily disturbed.

Since I started reading Dorohedoro manga about 10 years ago it always been my all-time favorite and of course I was hyped for anime adaptation when I heard about it. Also I was scared at the same time for MAPPA with overusing of 3D CGI to completely destroy the muddy but highly-detailed art and all the greatness of the original that Hayashida Q invested 18 years of work to create. For me this manga is just one of a kind, without a single cliche and there never was or will be anything resembling it. As manga have high concentration of gore, dismemberment, black humor and read more

Dorohedoro, based on the manga penned by Q Hayashida, for years has constantly been hailed as an example of “a manga that could never be adapted into an anime” in numerous lists/articles and threads online. Her sketchy, densely detailed art style has been compared to manga like Tsutomu Nihei’s Blame! and while less refined than works like Kentaro Miura’s Berserk, falls into a similar category of manga so detailed, some feel it would be impossible to accurately portray frame for frame in animation. Interestingly, both of these properties have received anime adaptations, In Berserks case multiple. Disregarding the Berserk 1997 anime series, both Berserk and read more

I am confused but I enjoy.

Wow, this anime really surprised me by being so fucking good. I feel like that MAPPA has improved their CGI skills. They manage to blend the CG very well to 2d animation. There are many things I like about this anime. For example the unique abilities of the sorcerers, character designs, backgrounds, OST and of course the characters

Story is very simple. We follow Caiman who was a normal human but due to some sorcerers power his head turned into a lizards head. Now he hunts down sorcerers to find out the man who made him into the creature he is. read more

When you get an anime adapting a critically claimed manga with fantastic art, your first thought is usually
GAAAAAAHHhhHHhHHhhH NOT AGAIN
Luckily for us, the adaptation of Dorohedoro, a manga I unfortunately have not read, seems to be a pretty decent adaptation.

Story:8
Dorohedoro is known for its wacky and nonsensical plot. And this certainly lives up to that. If I were to tell someone I was enjoying this show, and explained the plot.... they would probably think I was a bit weird. At least, weirder than normal. Let me explain it to you. A half crocodile man bits down on the heads of wizards so the read more
