Description
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?"

A must read for sure. Expand your manga horizon. Really like the mix between mystery, action, magic. Very well developed characters. Up to volume 15 its pure bliss to be swept away in this amazing work.

If you read this till the end you'll realise that is not just awesome, it has a story for real and strong character development. The best manga i've ever read, I mean, this is the only one who made me read 70 pages in 10 minutes.
By the way, who said "Nothing is new, everything is a copy" didn't read this manga.

Bizzare, offbeat, sometimes hilarious

This may not be a manga that appeals to everyone. I enjoy the art and the roughness of it, but others may not. I like that the artist obviously draws their work as opposed to using a lot of CG backgrounds or photoshoped stuff. I think the bizarreness of the imagery goes well with the black humor of the story. Some of the humor sometimes had me guffawing in laughter, other times not. Black humor and gore may not be everyone's cup of tea however. There's also some stuff that actually surprises a jaded manga reader like myself.

Some of the problems it has is that sometimes it feels that there isn't a well grounded system that explains how things work. This is why sometimes it feels that some stuff is just made up at the spur of the moment. If you pull off ideas that are just thrown in there no one will notice, but sometimes some things don't seem as well thought out so it becomes noticeable. Also there are times when the humor is a little forced or takes precedence over the story making one feel that the story is dragging a bit.

This is still a pretty fun and original work that contains a fair amount of surprises which made it hard for me to put down. At this time I give it a 9.

... All words that scarcely illustrate the epicness of this manga. The carefully selected minutias and interactions of the characters and the story line beckons readers to read on to the next chapter. The main character exemplifies, and perhaps is the epitome, of cool. I fear that if he were any cooler, the universe would freeze over. The only faux pas of this manga, is that it is not yet well known. It vexatious that my written accolades alone do not serve this manga justice... please for the love of all that is good and enjoyable in the world... READ THIS MANGA!!

This manga got me hooked right away and I couldn't stop reading. The story and characters are so unique and fun. I don't know, this manga has everything I can ask for in a manga. A mysterious, badass, strong main character that also has a sense of humor. The setting is super cool and complex. The others characters are just as interesting. And most importantly, this manga doesn't have a good vs. evil kind of thing. Rather everyone has a reason for doing what they do and the manga doesn't take sides with one particular group. As a result, I was able to enjoy reading the Kaiman/Nikaido parts as well as the En/Shin/Noi parts. A true masterpiece in my mind.
Note: If your a devout Christian I highly recommend you stay away though.

At the beginning, I thought it was going to be a regular and -kind of cliched- manga. But god I was wrong. Dorohedoro is the definition of originality. The drawing style is amazing, the backgrounds are awesome and the steam punk ambientation is perfect and fitting. Although at the beginning it has some problems with the human anatomy and proportions, it gets better as time passes.
You have to pay attention to it, because little details are important. Skim reading does not work with mangas with a complete, interesting and intelligent plot. Also, if you don't pay attention you won't enjoy it as much as you should.
Every single character is charismatic in his own way, which makes you like villains as much as the good guys.
The dark humour and odd plot is hilarious sometimes and drags you in.
The length of each chapter is perfect and makes the first volumes pass slowly, which I really appreciate because I am the kind of guys who read a manga in one or two days.
One of my favourite mangas and i've read a lot of mangas. A LOT of mangas.

An enjoyable read with excellent artwork (assuming you like the style). Though "tragically" it does require one to pay attention so you cant skim read it (which is the most bizarre fucking complaint Ive ever seen)

the drawing is nice? yeah right!

its hard to separate foreground from background, make me have hard time reading this manga. the ink also spills everywhere, creating unnecessary noise. i can tolerate messy drawing sometimes, but this manga is unbearable. i'm off after one volume.

people here tell that the story is amusing, but i say no, it is purely dark and far from enjoyable. also, the story is not easy to grasp. ones need to pull off great concentration to understand the tale. thus, skim reading won't work.

At first I didn't like the artwork and think the story would be predictable, the manga is very gore on its beginning but it suddenly changes to dark humor. The whole plot is very ununsual and even the vilains are captivating. Not only violence but good drama and some romance are present too. It is already one of my favorite mangas!

Haha, can't believe I was hesitant to pick this one up. :] Like people said, no real way to spoil this but damn, it has its own flavor. I definitely recommend it if you don't mind gore, mystery, a good story with a semi-original setting and of course, lots and lots of amusing, trippy entertainment. Art is nice as well, and there are sprinkles of comedy throughout. lol poor Ebisu.
