looks alright, is it gory &/or absurdly violent, by any chance (I just marathon watched kanon followed by Air TV....I need something like that :P )

May 20, 2008, 07:55 AM
Apparently the scans have been dead for a while now, every now and then one of my colleagues spams me with his desire to do the series.

Crazy seinen manga, by Hayashida Q. (ex-assistant of Tsutomu Nihei, and it shows)

Omanga never managed to pick up where they left off years ago, but some other people recently started work on it.
First 2 volumes re-edited + 3 new chapters here in this topic at Stoptazmo: http://stoptazmo.com/misc-series/28609-dah-hungry-bug-s-lounge.html

More info: http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=209

Awesomeness sample:
uh crap, there was already a Dorohedoro topic

never mind, erase this

Hayashida Q. (ex-assistant of Tsutomu Nihei, and it shows)

Holy shit, I did not know that. I knew their styles were similar somehow, but to be this direct, it's great to hear since I also love BLAME!. :)

Anyway, exciting stuff, I hope you guys are enjoying our progress so far.

July 08, 2008, 09:03 PM
funny, i was right about to start a dorohedoro topic, and here this thread is!

LOVE IT. crazy violent, goofy humor, total harry potter steampunk meets violence.

and a lizardman who will eat your head. and he is the good guy. At first I didn't like the overdone style, but now I'm into it.

July 14, 2008, 11:02 PM
Just finished vol 1 & 2, pretty good! Nihei style really stained him, in a good way. It's a little confusing at times and written sooo small, but I like it!

The characters are so unattached, and now, because of the lizard, I wanna eat gyozas...

Hey there.

Thanks for keeping the thread up to date, optimist, but please try to stick to the "official" download sites, it's useful to us.

But I dont want to be just annoying, so here's a little present:
Release of End of volume 4...
Open the cage (http://www.zshare.net/download/20407963dc58c35f/) for some wild shopping (http://www.zshare.net/download/20408231cd728fe3/)!

Note on the archives: little mistake, the archive Doro_curse23 contains curse 22 and Doro_curse24 contains curse 23 (and the bonus curse of volume 4). Just dont get confused...

January 13, 2009, 01:51 PM
Sorry for the double post, but the thread is so popular... It needs some bump.
After some delay, all chapters of volume 5 are available!

First, chap 24 (http://www.zshare.net/download/51127767f5449c36/) and chap 25 (http://www.zshare.net/download/5112777387d399be/): 
Then, chap 26 and 27: some sexy High Heels (http://www.zshare.net/download/529444985c1f79c1/) and Tits (http://www.zshare.net/download/529446213de97f63/)!
And as fresh as could be, the last 3 chaps of volume 5:
giant meatbags (http://www.zshare.net/download/5399066717ab6748/), take away surprises (http://www.zshare.net/download/54079351a9498f2c/) and killer shrooms (http://www.zshare.net/download/54079389556749b3/).

February 02, 2009, 05:08 PM
I really enjoyed this series so far. It reminds me of Arcanum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcanum:_Of_Steamworks_and_Magick_Obscura) and its "steampunk-high fantasy setting". Though the "steampunk" setting is dominant here.

February 22, 2009, 05:20 PM
Mort, I need to talk to you.
Please reply.

April 10, 2009, 02:08 PM
It reminds a lot of that snes rpg: Shadowrun

May 21, 2009, 06:04 PM
viz is thinking of publishing this series if enough people read it here (http://www.sigikki.com/) when its up.

September 17, 2009, 09:39 AM
Not a bad manga, the art work reminds me of Shirow Masamune A LOT. But it's a good read. Wouldn't surprise me to see it published in America, it seems typically geared towards the yanks the further you get into it. I'm currently on 27 and must say that it's a shame it's toned down a lot. I understand that it can't just be violence on top of violence, but with the cleaned up artwork, it loses the gritty feel it had and even when you do see violence, it's not as it was. It's a good read though. I've skipped work to read it today.

September 17, 2009, 09:53 AM
Wouldn't surprise me to see it published in America

lol, it is going to be published in canada & america.

September 20, 2009, 05:03 AM

Anyway, just got to Curse 47 and it's beyond obvious that Risu was the boss of the cross-eyes but also was an underling to protect his identity. Am I wrong?
Second thoughts, just about to start chapter 50 and i'm now sure that it's Nikaido that is the Cross-eyes' boss.
OK, i've just finished 81, where can I find the rest?

September 20, 2009, 06:49 PM
That's all that's been scanlated so far, chapter 81 was the most recent raw posted to MH. Hopefully chapter 82 is coming soon.

Crazy seinen manga, by Hayashida Q. (ex-assistant of Tsutomu Nihei, and it shows)

No wonder the artwork seemed familiar. Great manga btw.

October 08, 2009, 04:13 AM
apparently two new chapters (scanlations) are out.
not that i can find them anywhere.
scratch that, found em.

November 23, 2009, 05:42 AM
chapter 85 is out.

June 29, 2010, 04:38 PM
Volume 14 came out in January. There is no scheduled release date for volume 15.

June 30, 2010, 07:30 PM
Dunno if GWR are still working on this, but if they are, they'll most likely release the whole volume. There was also an anon scanlator releasing this, but by volumes too. So probably not.

July 01, 2010, 08:29 PM
There is no scheduled release date :)

August 12, 2010, 09:59 AM
I’ve enjoyed reading Dorohedoro thus far. Not bad at all. I like the pace of the chapters, the drawings are great and the characters are quite interesting too. Shin (the guy with the heart head-mask) is my favourite character.

The manga can be quite humorous at times which I wasn’t expecting. So far I’ve only read up chapter 21, I’ll be off to download the rest of the available chapters soon…before they disappear lol. :darn

August 12, 2010, 06:37 PM
There's definitely a dark sense of humor to the series. Kaiman and Nikaido in particular are quite funny. For how heavy and threatening it can get there are some nice jokes at the appropriate moments.

August 12, 2010, 09:00 PM
Based on the situations, character interactions and so on... I think this series is much lighter than what the drawing style and atmosphere suggests. It's mostly black humour, I almost never got the "dark and heavy" vibe when reading it.

August 12, 2010, 09:29 PM
Even when Shin is gutting someone I never get the same vibe as Freesia, or something like that. Not that I would consider it a light hearted happy manga :p

December 07, 2010, 12:45 PM
Hi guys, I just start the manga and i had reached ch 41 but i could not find other chapters except 42 and 43 to download directly.

Could any1 of you give me links for direct download and not online cause i have a bad connection, plz guys.

December 07, 2010, 10:33 PM
Check mangaupdates (http://www.mangaupdates.com/) for a link to the scanlator. They have all fourteen volumes available for dl at their website. All links work, all chapters are available.

December 08, 2010, 09:10 AM
Thanks a lot Kaiten for the advice and hope this manga will be one of the best and continue on the same amuse and splendid storyline.

December 12, 2010, 03:29 PM
15 volume's out at Jcafe (http://www.jcafe24.net/index.php?topic=4798.msg475283#msg475283).

thank you very much Gottheim! but I can't find the release there.

Anyway....as you wish :tem http://unixmanga.com/onlinereading/Dorohedoro.html

May 04, 2011, 09:29 AM
Its crazy...i love that crazy part. but its gotten a little worse i think.

June 06, 2011, 03:27 PM
nah,I've enjoyed reading it.it's time to get the new volume now....any info?

June 20, 2011, 05:33 AM
Feel like I've missed this manga, haven't seen a chapter in a while.

June 20, 2011, 07:11 AM
It looks like no one's scanning the individual chapters that are published in IKKI Monthly, so I guess we're just going to have to wait until volume 16 is released. No news about it yet, though.

June 20, 2011, 11:19 AM
I'm not sure if IKKI magazine raws are widely available anymore. Maybe on share, definitely not at raw bunko or distro. GWR never scan mag raws anyway.

October 08, 2011, 12:14 PM
hey,it's been a while,volume 16 should be out,any info?perhaps you forgot this manga XD.

October 08, 2011, 05:56 PM
Volume 16 will be out at the end of the month, on October 28. Here is an LQ scan of the cover, courtesy of Amazon:


October 21, 2011, 01:48 PM
Man, i really need new chapters for this series :(

November 18, 2011, 06:53 PM
Volume 16 will be out at the end of the month, on October 28.
Thanks for the info!

I hope it gets scanned and scanlated relatively quickly, I've missed this series so bad that it's not even funny.

---------- Post added November 19, 2011 at 01:53 AM ---------- Previous post was October 22, 2011 at 01:08 AM ----------

Found a raw scan of vol 16, I wish I knew what the heck is going on, haha. Other than the following (hopefully obviously contains spoilers):
Hope it gets scanlated soon.

And now we have to wait another full year for the next volume. I shall now proceed to pull all of my hair out.

November 20, 2011, 04:33 AM

Awesome manga, want more i love it so much. The vol 16 cover is a masterpiece i want new chap.

Dorohedoro volume 16. (http://www.jcafe24.net/index.php/topic,4798.msg619376.html#msg619376)

Also please read GWR's announcement (http://imgbox.com/aasaotVB) and help if you can (or at least spread the word). Without them only shitty titles will be released.

January 09, 2012, 09:45 AM
I've totally forgotten the storyline. I can't believe how could i...now i've to go back and reread them damn...

Dorohedoro volume 16. (http://www.jcafe24.net/index.php/topic,4798.msg619376.html#msg619376)
Aw man, I'm too late - it was hosted on MegaUpload and everyone knows what happened to them. Darnation.
I don't suppose anyone who has it could upload it somewhere else?

January 25, 2012, 10:57 AM
What are you talking about? It was uploaded via Multiupload and there are many mirrors of that file. Wupload works for example. But to see the link you have to register on jcafe and write at least one no-spam post. Also, you can read it on Batoto, one of the few manga agregator sites with scanlator's blessing.

March 04, 2012, 05:31 PM
3 months ago volume 15 came out in Italy,how is that possible that we haven't read volume 16 yet???

March 05, 2012, 04:25 PM
3 months ago volume 15 came out in Italy,how is that possible that we haven't read volume 16 yet???

In your country you mean? As for the scan it has been released and posted here long ago. :)

July 07, 2012, 09:52 AM
Really, just copy paste the japanese title from mangahelpers or mangaupdates to amazon japan... it's serialized in Ikki, volume 16 was out last year in autumn, and 15 in autumn the year before that... now extrapolate, since 17 isn't listed yet. And nobody seems to be scanning IKKI, so there are no chapter raws.

November 08, 2012, 12:11 AM
Vol. 17 raw: http://www.gamefront.com/files/22483827/Dorohedoro-v17.rar

If someone would be willing to translate it I could take care of typesetting.

Scanlation of volume 17:


November 18, 2012, 05:18 AM
Volume 17 was awesome as usual. I think we are not for from the final stage now.
Poor Fujita, he always makes volume dramatic ending !

November 27, 2012, 05:49 AM
I just caught up with this manga and I have to say that it is incredible and one of the best mangas I have ever read. I love everything about it. Especially the art, the characters and the humor.

I will say that I do kind of miss Nikaido and Kaiman's friendship and interaction and the "slice-of-life-esque" aspect of the earlier chapters, but the story heavy later parts are also extremely compelling.

November 27, 2012, 10:36 AM
I'm glad you liked it. It seems to have been a fast read :-))

November 27, 2012, 01:19 PM
for those who haven't much familiarity with batoto or that kind of site,here I link some other sites,where you can find dorohedoro till volume 17 : http://www.mangareader.net/dorohedoro (who seems not to work for those who live in US) http://mangafox.me/manga/dorohedoro/

November 30, 2012, 09:30 AM
More discussion about the series please!

November 30, 2012, 01:48 PM
I'm sorry goral,I didn't know that,it's just that I wasn't aware of that other site either :XD.
Btw, I didn't really like this volume: the boss did nothing! he wants to become a devil,but that was already clear volumes ago,when chidaruma talked about "the chosen". and he killed all the elite cross-eyes apart dokuga and the one-eye guy. I'd also agree with k-dom,but for other reasons,such as that putting fujita in the end of volumes seems dramatic,but it's getting less effective. right now,the 2 of them shouldn't but ally,in order to save each other's friends and to stop Kai.

110th chapter by Fallen Syndicate: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/148005/dorohedoro_ch110_by_fallen-syndicate/3

December 25, 2012, 01:51 PM
what does it mean? is it the first chapter of volume 18? uhm,I'm not sure whether I want to read it as a chapter,instead of as a volume...

December 25, 2012, 04:30 PM
No it is the first chapter of the future volume 18. This is what is written on Fallen syndicate site:

Also, we’ve picked up Dorohedoro, and will be scanlating it from the magazines starting this chapter

March 15, 2013, 07:59 AM
Chapters 111 and 112:

They're superb. I'm baffled that so few people know about this manga.

March 15, 2013, 09:41 AM
Yep, great stuff.
Support the official version so we'll get more manga like this: http://www.bookdepository.com/search?searchTerm=dorohedoro&search=Find+book (worldwide free shipping)

March 15, 2013, 09:47 AM
Yes it's a shame i discovered it to late and soleil doesn't want to reprint the first french volumes.

March 15, 2013, 04:32 PM
I've got the first 8 volumes published by Viz. Got 9 and 10 on preorder. Love this series to death.

March 15, 2013, 06:21 PM
Yeah I've got all of VIZ's releases too. They are freaking beautiful :D

March 16, 2013, 06:00 PM
Love those fluorescent spines. Just like my Drifting Classroom books.

April 25, 2013, 05:23 PM
any news concerning the new volume? the 18th,that is. when will it be complete?

April 25, 2013, 06:37 PM
Well usually there are like 8-ish chapters per volume, and the magazine chapters released so far only run up to 5. So it'll probably be sometime early fall?

April 26, 2013, 07:38 PM
The chapter published in April s issue of IKKI is #117, and previous volume ended at #109.
Next month mangaka will take a break which is usually to prepare release of future volume (I guess to make bonus chapter, work with designer on cover etc.).
I read some people on 2ch saying it could be released next June, so let s see.

June 28, 2013, 12:17 AM
According to manganewsjapan twitter, volume 19th will be the last one.

June 28, 2013, 10:39 AM
Nice, I don't like manga to go on forever and this way I'm pretty sure Viz will stick with it until the end.

June 28, 2013, 10:52 AM
and this way I'm pretty sure Viz will stick with it until the end.

Exactly my thoughts. I feel very relieved now.

July 30, 2013, 05:58 PM
There is no news since next volume will be the last one.

August 02, 2013, 09:41 AM
Every chapter of volume 18 has been scanlated (though with scans from the pre-publication). All that's left is that final book.

November 30, 2013, 05:24 PM
For info

November 17, 2015, 06:50 PM
According to http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/dorohedoro-r2379 , the manga is getting extended to vol.21 . I fear it won't end for at least 8 months... Yet, the plot is extremely valuable ;)
