Dorohedoro is just so awesome. It's doubtless one of my favorite manga. I admit, although with great shame, that near its end U had lost track of a lot of the story, but it was just so weird and cool that I didn't need to know what the Hell was going on. It's one of the most remarkable successes in having feel so strongly, weirdly distinct that it is sufficiently propulsive by that alone.

I was so inexplicably happy that the anime took care to include the toilet to Hell that I can barely express it. Living in a bleak and hopeless real world as we are, it's nice to read about a bleak and hopeless fictional world that's somehow a lot of fun anyway.

And yes, girl big is very important and extremely good. I was immensely pleased that the anime did not reduce Noi to a couple of watermelons strapped to some noodles. Some real goddamned professionals made this series Bless them..

If fate is kind and just, there will be several more seasons. I kid, of course, as fate is blind and amoral, which given the nature of the world means that fate is hateful and cruel, but we got a season of Dorohedoro, so on an adjusted basis, we come out as not-as-far from ahead as humanity can realistically achieve.

SHOCKING!

In the manga, its name was given as, "Judas' Ear." I am genuinely curious about the nature of the name and translation choices made.

Kikurage and Judas' Ear are two different names for the same kind of mushroom.

Thank you, that would just about explain it.

I need to get to Kennett Square oftener, or at all. (I'm sure that SEPTA will reactivate the Octoraro Branch as a variant of the R3 service any day now...)*

*This is a very obscure, Philadelphia metropolitan area transit-advocate sort of 'joke' that makes sense to almost nobody. For this, I am deeply sorry.
