Doron Dororon is not without its flaws. I'm willing to admit that. But behind those flaws is a series with so much heart, that, in defiance of all my expectations, I grew to love.

If you want a simple battle shounen that won't take you too long to read, give this one a shot. You may not like it as much as I did, but it's only 5 volumes, so what have you got to lose? Maybe you'll find that it's actually a hidden gem!
