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?"

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.

If you haven't started reading Dorohedoro yet, don't worry about spoilers, because honestly, no matter how hard I try, I won't be able to describe this manga, let alone spoil it. It's bizarre, entertaining, wildly weird, occasionally sick, and goddamn hilarious. Definitely check it out.

well paced, well drawn, and most of all - unique.
there are no manga cliches in here at all.

Just read it okay. And to get to it, you need to take the Me Teru (Gantz waitingroom homepage) and go to the Stoptazmo main page. Then you go into the Misc series forum section and click on the hungry bugs lounge. There just to make it a little easier for you all.

if it keeps the pace of the first volumes it can become a great manga. Interesting and original. I really like the art and the dark atmosphere. I'll wait for the next releases to update my comment.
I find myself changing my opinion over this manga pretty often, though more than it should be... if you are looking for an ORIGINAL piece of work, then give it a shot. There's a lot of unnnecessary pages in my opinion, it tends to get slow and to waste time on useless details. But its so wierd I cannot stop liking it.
My rating changes from 5 to 8. Today, after reading volume 10, it's a 7.

The discription is really sucks. Well, as i understand there are two worlds(places)-where magic users live and live others(city). Magic users come to city to practice there skills. It's not usual magic-it usually some kind of smoke(gas) that they can use for make door in another world or transform somebody in bug(painfully) or mushrooms(dead instantly) for example, Well, and half of the city are this kind of mutants. Somebody transform the head of main hero into lizard-head, but he don't remember who did it, because he remember only last year of his life. He kill all magic users and seek who transormed his head. The author posses unique style of drawing-i didn't see anothing similar to it. The world is unique and very interesting too. Every hero is wonderful, Author show life not only main heros but also there opponents(50-50%). And you begin to love them all, but they will fight without hesitation. It is wonderful, sometimes little cruel, sometimes very funny manga.
