Well, I disagree.

You know how Alan Moore has low opinion of the film adaptations of his comic books? Because he drew them with the specific intention of showing just how strong of a medium comics are, and that the stories taken outside of that medium are pale shadows of the original?

Dorohedoro is one of those mangas. It's greatness can only be obtained in the perfect medium for it - manga. This isn't one of those books/mangas that are written/drawn with the specific intention of the author his worked to get picked up for adaptation and make more money.

I'm repeating myself, but an adaptation will only greatly diminish everything that makes Dorohedoro a masterpiece.

That depends on the team responsible.

Some manga's just can't be adapted into an anime without turning to utter shit (remember the Blade of the Immortal anime?). Dorohedoro is one of those mangas.

It's a masterpiece of artwork and storytelling, enjoy it for what it is. An adaptation would just subtract from it - you can't add anything to perfection.

So now I can actually start reading it, good!

I wonder though can we expect an anime (or at least ova) adaptation to it? I mean manga is ending, so anime will have proper end aswell plus manga itself is popular enough.


I doubt it and would be incredibly worried that they'd butcher the artstyle due to lack of budget. It would have to be an OVA unless you want shadow censors everywhere in every episode. At least in that case it would be ok on the BDs. As much as I'd love a good, faithful anime with an actual budget I doubt that'll happen so it's probably better it stays as just manga.

It's been pretty clear that it's coming to a close soon for a while, I think.
I'd rather it have an ending than end up pointlessly dragged out.
I can't wait to see whatever Hayashida does next though.

Like I need more depressing news.
Oh well even great manga like this needs an ending. D:

If you could just stop saying the same things on every manga is ending news, that'd be great.

But I want a good ending, with a kiss between kaiman and nikaido, a love full of gyoza :p


Seriously??

Hopefully we'll get to see more of Ai before the manga ends.

Endings mean new beginnings. I look forward to all the new series that will replace the old ones.

Oh, I started reading this manga some weeks ago and now is ending… ;_;
well at least I won’t have to wait years to see the conclusion.

I'm glad so many manga are ending though...at least they aren't going to go on forever.
