The story revolves around Kaiman, who does not remember who he was before he was transfigured by a Magic user. This transformation left him with a reptile's head, and a desire to find out the truth about who he really is. Accompanied by Nikaido, his female companion, he tracks down Magic Users in "The Hole" and unceremoniously chomps down on their head, hoping to find out who it was that put him in this state. One by one, they witness this "second man" inside the head of Kaiman, and after pulling them back out of his mouth he asks them all a question...

"What did the guy inside my head say?"

One of the best manga for sure. The plot, pacing, and characterization are all amazing.

The artwork is so freaking messing well detailed it has a sandpaper-ish texture to it. And What I like the most about this manga is the Gore =D guts flying and people ripping each other in half ..Brilliant X D

How is Viz's translation and print quality? Do they print the color pages?

Started this manga last night, it's pretty cool. I sorta like the dark humor in this manga, and the of course the over the top blood and gore is pretty cool as well.

 

Only 5 chapters in, and I like it so far

 

And damn, Nikaido just make me diddydatazz2.png whenever she's on panel.

UP TO DATE, OH YEAH!

Love this series. Shin is a total and unstoppable badass. I LOVE his character. En too. For a mafia boss, I actually find him interesting. He's not the most powerful being there is (the devils make mince meat of him, if they wanted), and he genuinely cares for the wellbeing of his family (without being rough and cynical all the time).

Nikaido's cool too--despite her massive fan service, she's an awesome fighter. Noi too! I LOVE that Shin and her aren't sexual, despite the massive tension between them.

GREAT series. NOT as great as Eden (the plot simply just doesn't compare), but definitely on my top 10, if not 5.

Though I'm kinda sad Kaiman's. . . well, I won't spoil those who haven't read it up to date.

Ahh so matts been spreading the love.

 

You'll also love Freesia I read this at the same time as Dorohedoro and it was possibly a bigger even mind fuck. I should go make a thread for it.

I actually read this not so much for the mind blowingness of it, but the style of meat of the story.  It's got great dark humor, good gore, and interesting characters.  They're both serious and surreal at the same time, and things don't necessarily follow a straight path, as, say an Eden would.

 

Though I guess I'd like Freesia too :D

Ahh I understand. Calling it the meat of the story is a good phrase for this manga especially. Dorohedoro definitely has special feel to it.

 

Never read Eden though.

 

Freesia is insanely trippy at times and the characters are so full and you really get into deep into their minds. The premise for the action of the story is pretty amazing as well.

I think Chidaruma and the other devils are up to something and are/have been manipulating Aikawa/Ai/Kai/whoeverthefuckheisnow. What they are up to, I couldn't even begin to guess. Based on their personalities, I wouldn't be surprised if they are just doing one giant prank for laughs. But on the other hand, based on the vibe of the latest chapters, I wouldn't be surprised if they had some actual, serious motives for doing what they are doing. Unifying Hole and the magic user's world perhaps?

Yeah, we had a whole side-chapter that showed nothing else but Chidarauma playing pranks - if this is all a joke of his, his humor certainly is the worst I've ever seen -.-

 

On the other hand, maybe they are like scientists: Putting something in motion and looking what the outcome will be, regardless what it is.

That could be Prof. Kasukabe's influence on Haru.

I honestly thought Aikawa was trying to use the souls or bodies of Hole and make him powerful enough to challenge the Devils themselves--thus, Chidaruma is in effect accepting a challenge he probably sees as the amusement of the century.

Either way it'll be fun. If it's all a joke, well, it'd still fit Dorohedoro's style.

En should come back, btw.
