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.
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?

chapter 85 is out.
Volume 14 came out in January. There is no scheduled release date for volume 15.
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.
There is no scheduled release date
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.
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.
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.
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
