Dorohedoro anime cover

Score: 7.53/10

Synopsis

Hole—a dark, decrepit, and disorderly district where the strong prey on the weak and death is an ordinary occurrence—is all but befitting of the name given to it. A realm separated from law and ethics, it is a testing ground to the magic users who dominate it. As a race occupying the highest rungs of their society, the magic users think of the denizens of Hole as no more than insects. Murdered, mutilated, and made experiments without a second thought, the powerless Hole dwellers litter the halls of Hole's hospital on a daily basis. Possessing free access to and from the cesspool, and with little challenge to their authority, the magic users appear indomitable to most—aside for a few. Kaiman, more reptile than man, is one such individual. He hunts them on a heedless quest for answers with only a trusted pair of bayonets and his immunity to magic. Cursed by his appearance and tormented by nightmares, magic users are his only clue to restoring his life to normal. With his biggest obstacle being his stomach, his female companion Nikaidou, who runs the restaurant Hungry Bug, is his greatest ally. Set in a gritty world of hellish design, Dorohedoro manages a healthy blend of comedy and lightheartedness with death and carnage. Taking plenty of twists and turns while following the lives of Hole's residents, it weaves a unique world of unearthly origin and dreary appearance not for the squeamish or easily disturbed.

One of the biggest appeals in the manga is its highly detailed scenarios, backgrounds which express the world’s mood around the characters with as much as the character themselves, because everything its hand drawn, all the visuals show some sketch or rough lines, suiting the dirty and convoluted environment. Main Cast-0 As much as the scenarios, the characters are designed in a wide variety of forms, one of the most suitable examples is Noi, with a design which goes from a brute gimp-looking bouncer to a beautiful muscular woman just with a change of clothes. Most of the Dorohedoro characters are surreal or brutal in appearance, but with a charming and quite warming personality, showing them as normal, real people, but with rough exteriors. Their design is inspired in Motofumi Kobayashi’s Omega series, King Gonta’s Soten Koro and even Puripuri-ken sense of humor. These manga gave Q Hayashida her typical touch in design and character development, for example, Kaiman’s militaristic looking clothes and overall detailed weaponry comes from Motofumi’s work. Q Hayashida is quite free in terms of how she put the manga together, sometimes even in a way different from how it is supposed to be. During an interview in 2006 she said: “I just draw it however I feel like drawing it, always. I’m really inconsistent about that stuff. And sometimes I might color with paint that’s supposed to be used for plastic models, stuff like that. I pretty much always use tracing paper, though.Without even planning the layout, I just started drawing it from scratch, and then after a while I got to a point where I felt it was time to end it, so I did.I guess I didn’t really have any overall story. I just went on drawing scenes that I wanted to draw”.

Since I started reading Dorohedoro manga about 10 years ago it always been my all-time favorite and of course I was hyped for anime adaptation when I heard about it. Also I was scared at the same time for MAPPA with overusing of 3D CGI to completely destroy the muddy but highly-detailed art and all the greatness of the original that Hayashida Q invested 18 years of work to create. For me this manga is just one of a kind, without a single cliche and there never was or will be anything resembling it. As manga have high concentration of gore, dismemberment, black humor and even some high quality ecchi ;) I also wondered if the show will be ruined not by 3D CGI alone but by censorship too. The point I'm making is that my worries was almost (coz I didn't get confirmation for ecchi :D ) completely dispelled after watching a few episodes and the enjoyment was 10/10 for me as old Dorohedoro fan. I already like how it starts with exact same moment as in manga and following it without deviation. At first pacing seemed to me a little too fast, but there's not a single crucial scene missing as well as not a single of this important scenes was ruined by 3D CGI or censorship, some are much more gory in the manga though, but anime already surprised me with its own gore level as I initially expected shadows, black bars, rows of light etc everywhere. And there's so much material to adapt that I guess pacing is not a problem, the more events from manga will be in each episode - the better. Speaking about art - it's not so bad and annoying like in certain anime even when they're overusing 3D CGI, but when they're not using it - art is really decent, especially the Hole's scenery - it's as good as in original. Opening was fire! Favorite part of it is Nikaido deliriously chopping meat on the table, it's like...so symbolic for Dorohedoro or something. Personally I don't feel first ending at all, but ending 2 "Night Surfing" became my most favorite ending theme of all time. Overall I put OST of this anime adaptation in its strong points. I love how they made instead of preview after ending the same funny "what did we learn?" as in the end of each volume of manga, looking forward to it in each episodes. Caiman's voice (first recognized it as Okuyasu voice from JoJo4) is somehow totally like I expected it to be, it suits him perfectly, but I didn't think Nikaido's will have voice like this, it's not that I don't like it, but I still need some time to get used to it in next episodes. Characters? They are the best. Easily strongest side of this series. They're so badass and funny and non-cliche and absolutely outstanding I can't stop loving them all, same feeling I'm experiencing only with One Piece. There's complex amnesia plot (to put it mildly, avoiding spoilers) and many unexpected twists lying ahead in this show, and though I know every part of it already - it's full color and animated now and I know it will be great all the way to the end, wherever the anime adaptation is stopping! I'm kinda fanboy of the title so don't take my words as justice, this title is not for everyone liking at all. Better watch first episode or read first 4 chapters of manga that was adapted in it and see if you like it or not. If you already disliked it after that - you won't enjoy Dorohedoro in the future as it will be even more dark, confusing and full of gore. Though at the same time Dorohedoro never will be truly depressing /or give you a strong psychological pressure, dark antiutopia as it is - it's mostly positive and funny, specifically because of this I think Hayashida Q is a genius. That's all I have to say for now, except NIKAIDO IS BEST GIRL
