    Default Dorohedoro

    I don't see any other thread about this manga, unless I missed one called GIANT LIZARD HEAD MAN.

    So basic summary is really the bare bones of the story - there's a bunch of weirdly odd things going on at any given time ...

    So Kaiman is a man with a lizard head. He lives in a destitute city called Hole where people called magic users come and go, using the residents of Hole as practice for their magic. Thus his lizard head. But that's not the only problem Kaiman has - he's also lost his memory, so he's in search of the magic user that transformed him, so he can possibly restore his body and get his memory back as well.

    How does he search for this guy? He nabs a magic user, and chomps onto his/her head so they can see down his throat. Because Kaiman has a man inside of him that they can see, and the man talks to them ...

    With bizarre humor, awesome art, and a mystery revolving around enterprising mafia-like magic users, men with the same tattoo crosses over their eyes as Kaiman, and Ebisu (... just ... Ebisu ...), this manga has so far been a great read.

    Anyone else read it?

    Yes. It's rather funny, especially when Ebisu is doing...anything. The art's a nice change of pace too.

    I've always liked this style of art. Unclean is usually make great visuals. Maybe it's just the scans though, but they don't seem messed up.

    It's seinen drawn by a woman. And it's not a mystery story. It just has a mystery IN it.

    Indeed, I think that's how it's supposed to be. I like it, reminds me of some of the old Judge Dredd & Vertigo stuff.

    Reviving this thread because I recently went back to check omanga for any updates to this (hadn't read any of it in a few years) and found that omanga NO LONGER EXISTS.

    Fffuuuuuuuuuu.

    Anyway, I want more people to get interested in this so that you can all help me find newer releases of it. Who needs to receive a few letters to make this happen? This was my first 'favorite manga'.

    Shame omanga's gone, lotta good memories of that place. Anyway, let's all read the first chapter or two for old times' sake and then start buscando some more Dorohedoro.

    I heard that this manga is in its last few volumes. Any truth to that?

    Probably true. I have up to Volume 14 and it really seems like it's nearing a climax. However, I probably would have said it was close back in like Volume 7 or 8... the author is really good at adding new strands to the story and it doesn't always progress quickly to the next major event.

    Just picked up the first volume, looking forward to reading this again.

    This thread is too small given the quality of this series.

    Sounds like Guin Saga but a bit higher on the phylogeny tree.

    This is the only manga that I like in which I dont know what the hell is going on. First I thought it was about lizard head and revenge against magic users, but its about time controlling girl and an awesome entity that is known a cross eyes and al coleman.

    I Still dont know what happening in the series but I love it because its so twisted.

    I'm currently reading through the pilot. Really good stuff. How the hell did I miss this one?

    I always wanted to draw a steampunk-iish comic in a fantasy setting, and this gives lots of inspiration. The people within the backdrop reminds me of several races in Breath of Fire 4 too.
