Zaha Sanko's body has great and terrible powers–they say that possessing his bones will grant you any wish, even the desire to become ruler of the universe. But Sanko is still a teenage dude with his own life, and he isn't about to let every monstrous lowlife in the galaxy rip him limb from limb. He and his skeletal buddy Avakian will use their dark powers to fend off any murder attempts while they search space for whomever put this curse on Sanko's bones...because killing them might end the madness. (And then Sanko can celebrate with his favorite spaghetti.)

We've only scratched the surface of what I'd wager will become an awesome story.

The concept of Dai Dark is so weird and out-of-nowhere, but the worldbuilding is fantastic and it makes you want to learn more. This really is a refreshing, original manga with its own unique balance between horror and comedy. Are you a ...

Preliminary (9/? eps)
Im really disappointed because Dorohedoro is one of my favorite mangas of all time, this has none of the charisma that made Doro great. I have no investment in any of the characters, the way i can describe them is meeting people at the waiting room of your dentist office, you genuinely couldnt care less about these people. The plot has no direction whatsoever, I tried giving it 10 chapters before dropping it since i was Hooked by the 5 chapter of Doro. the gore is decent at best but the comedy feels kind of dry.

If we can recall why the ending of dorohedoro was ...
