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.

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.

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.

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...
