Editorial Reviews

Imagine a world where the secret to immortality has been discovered, causing women to stop aging by the time they turn twelve. Sounds like it might be a perfect playground for a discoverer with less-than-wholesome interests, doesn't it? That's exactly why the Big Man Upstairs sends Dokuro-chan, one of his angelic assassins, into the past to "deal" with the sicko who messed with nature. But Dokuro-chan decides instead to move in with her target, Sakura Kusakabe, and keep him too occupied to find eternal life. Funnily enough, the path of nonviolence leads to a fountain of blood, as Dokuro-chan accidentally kills Sakura on an almost daily basis, only to resurrect him with a magical chant moments later.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was worth the wait. June 30, 2010
By OKAMI
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the best comedies in the wonderful world of anime originally released in 2008 (sub version only) is back to club some skulls this time with an excellent english cast, Bludgeoning Angle Dokuro-chan is about a boy that will change the future by making a Pedophile's world, fortunately angel from the future Dokuro-chan is on a mission to stop and kill him before this happens.

Sakura Kusakabe is destined to create the technology for eternal life, which (due to Sakura's lolicon/Pedophile tendencies) freezes all women's aging once they turn twelve. God refuses to allow this, so he sends his angels to the past to kill Sakura before he can do this. But one angel, Dokuro-chan, decides to try to change the future without killing him. Problem is, Dokuro is very temperamental, and is constantly killing Sakura in incredibly bloody ways with her giant spiked club, but she always revives him just for her own pleasure.

The show has a very comedic satire on sexuality combined with references from other anime genres, tons of that smart and clever sense of humor from Japan, each episode is fast-paced, crazy and always funny, the only down side is when we get to the end credits.

PROS
- Series 1 and 2
- Intros and endings songs are very catchy.
- Vivid colors and fluent animation.
- Plenty of fan service.
- Japanese and English audio
- Lots of sexual innuendo.
- The English dub is top-notch.
Sakura - Johnny Young Bosh (Lelouch )
Dokuro- Wendee Lee ( Haruhi )
Sabato - Elle Deets (Izumi Isozaki )
Zakuro - Dorothy Fahn (Naru Narusegawa )
Zansu - Kirik Thornton (Kaname Ohgi )
Miyamoto - Sam Regal (Shinobu Morita )
Ono - Michelle Ruff ( Yuki Nagato )

Cons
- Season 2 is only of 4 episodes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tear-inducingly hilarious, with a great dub. March 27, 2011
Format:DVD
I loved Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan before it was even made into DVD, so it was exciting the first time through when it was given a DVD release...but without a dub, which to me was pretty crushing, as I was crying for a good dub of the series.

So, because the DVD release was a huge hit and people were begging for a dub to be made, they finally they made one, and even gave it its own release. The cast is absolutely top-notch, with huge-name voice actors and actresses making their presence in the show. It's like a who's-who of VAs, and I was admittedly stunned when I read the cast. I didn't think it was possible to put Wendee Lee, Johnny Young Bosch, Michelle Ruff, and Dorothy Fahn in the same anime, but they managed it here. Very impressive. Even Sam Regal is in there...somehow...err, not sure how he ended up here in the role he's given, but uh...hey, I'm not complaining, I like him too.

I will admit, however, I'm pretty sick of seeing Johnny Young Bosch in what feels like every anime ever released. Why is this guy in everything? Not like it's his fault, and he's profiting from it, but still...anyway, thinking of who could have played Sakura instead of Bosch, I'm thinking Spike Spencer. He probably could have pulled it off. Just, anyone but Bosch.

The only weak point I have, and this is really significant, is that season 2 is nowhere near as funny as season 1. The difference is huge. We're talking, like, Love Hina versus Love Hina Again-level difference, maybe worse. They changed quite a bit in season 2, including the color of Dokuro-chan's hair (uh, huh?), and it reeks of "We had to make a season 2 for the fans, but we're not going to put the slightest bit of effort into a single scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan August 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this series was amazing it had all the blood, nudity, and comedy any show can ask for I couldn't think of another show that had the same mix that made it funny. This series is a must get for anyone who is into this kind of stuff.

Trying out a new format for reviews. "Ratings" are a guess and lean toward the "safe side".

Sub-genre: Comedy romance (Harem for part 2).

Situations: Opening R, series probably PG+ Opening has series of FemDom S&M visuals.
Language: Probably PG
Nudity: Probably PG Limited exposure generally.
Violence: PG+ Occasionally gory, bloody.

Language options: Dub, Sub and Dub with subtitles. Excellent as you can watch both and compare the translations. (I liked the subtitled version better).

Special Features: Very limited. Just clean open/close and trailers (only one of which is in English, the other 3 are just a clip montage with music, presumably from the show. (Useless in other words).

Box and Menu Art is the same as the subtitle only version with backgrounds changed to red. I guess they didn't even need to do that, so kudos for effort.

Basically this is a twisted comedy about a twisted romance. Boy (Sakura-kun) is destined to accidentally discovery the secret to immortality while trying to create a pedophile world (Accidentally freezing all women at age 12) and an angel (Dokuro-chan) is sent back in time to stop him. Her mission is to kill him, but for some reason she falls for him instead and tries to keep him too busy to study. When he does anything "strange" she bludgeons him with her steel spiked bat named Excalibolg, usually turning him into a bloody, gory mess. She then immediately restores him with a chant and they go on with their lives. She becomes hunted by the other angels (especially her sister Zakuro-chan) from the future world for treason (not killing Sakura-kun) gets caught and taken away, but escapes back to the present to be with him.
