Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Dorohedoro series is a very interesting series about a man with no memory of his past, with the head of a lizard, and living in a world where wizards rule. After the first book, I really wondered how the rest of the series would take off, I was mostly curious as to who Caiman, the main character with a lizard head, really was. Even after reading the second volume, I still have no real idea, but more and more about who he really is is revealed as you read on. The second book alone had a big shocker in my opinion, but not about him. About his best friend (and possible girlfriend?), Nikaido. Overall, the storyline is really interesting. There may be blood and gore in excess, in addition to the occasional nudity (very little tho) and cursing, so this series isn't for younger readers, but those who don't take that to heart will find an interesting story that drags you along for a ride. The only complaint I would have is that on a few of the chapters the ending is sort of wrapped up rather fast, but page limitations would do that.
