Oh man, I remember watching fragments of Dokuro-chan when I was like 12. It was silly but also kinda mind blowing for me back then. Sad to see he haven't created anything as popular ever since it ended :< May he rest in peace, I'll definitely come back to Dokuro-chan one day.

RIP, thanks for Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Wow I'd just finished Dokuro chan a few days ago. Took a dozen screenshots of the wacky reaction faces during comedic scenes, must have had a lot of fun working on the series.
