Clubbed-To-Death-Angel Dokuro-Chan

Right, I admit that I said, after viewing the OP, that watching this show was "too horrible to contemplate."

But I watched it anyway.

That's about the worst thing I've ever inflicted on myself. My GOD, that was awful. Horrible. Terrible. EVIL.

As Steven DenBeste puts it, "I'm not nearly afraid enough of the Japanese."

I'm not even going to get into details. If I can sandpaper that chunk of memory out of my brain, I will. With a powersander.

Learn from my mistake: DO NOT WATCH THIS SHOW. EVER.

Eiken is better than this. And that made me want to pour battery acid in my eyes, then into my eyesockets after my eyes burned out.

Dokuro-chan is worse than that.

1 Sometimes I wonder to what purpose I write those blog articles, if people just ignore them. I even was more descriptive and less judgemental... ^_^

2 Were you hoping for something so-bad-that-it's-good or just feeling masochistic?

I actually thought it might be kind of cool. As I was in the middle of watching Elfen Lied at the time, my tolerance for blood, gore, and nudity was pretty high, so I figured Dokuro-chan might fall into the so-very-wrong-that-it's-just-right category. I purged it from my hard drive after watching the first half-hour OVA... it had already exhausted every atom of its comedic potential before totally grossing me out in the second half.

I can only imagine the horrors contained in the remaining episodes. But for the sake of my mental well-being, I won't.

3 "Were you hoping for something so-bad-that-it's-good or just feeling masochistic?"

I thought there might be SOMETHING in there that made it worthwhile... maybe as a fanservice-delivery vehicle.

I was wrong. So very, very wrong. But it was sort of like watching a Subcompact Car vs Supertanker accident... I just couldn't stop from watching.

Oh Lord, forgive me, for I am weak. I have paid for my sins, both past and future, now that I have watched Dokuro-chan.

4 For me it was the sonic diarrhea that did it for me. The violence I found half amusing if still over the top. "Bowel shaking earthquakes" have no place in anime for me.

5 First episode was actually kinda funny, especially the news reports. Second one definately dropped off. By the fifth one, it was in the realm of "MY EYES! WHAT DID I EVER DO TO YOU, GOD???"

I haven't purged it from my HD, only because I fully intend to inflict the horror on someone else. Eventually. Pain must be shared, after all, but it'll have to be someone I won't mind being a lifelong enemy of...
