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.

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.

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.

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.

As the cover of this DVD suggests, the title character is an exceptionally cute angel girl with a spiked club. But what is the spiked club used for? Its simple- she uses it to brutally kill the main character over and over again. One may think to themselves, how is this supposed to be a comedy? Its quite simple: the show is absolutely insane and all the violence is handled in such a ridiculous way that it ends up being hilarious. The blood content is almost on par with anime such as Another or Shiki.

What is this show about? An angel from the future called Dokuro comes to prevent the main character from committing a grievous sin in the near future, which causes all girls to stop aging after the age of twelve. This is a means of immortality, which offends God, and thus he must be stopped before if ever happens.

As a note to potential buyers, this is a very violent anime, but what may be more surprising is that this is an extremely perverted anime. There are many fan service moments as well as blatantly sexual situations. Its kind of like Excel Saga, but even crazier. The second season is definitely more raunchy than the first, which means its probably the better season, even though there is no plot in the second season, but its not like anyone necessarily watches this show for its story.

This DVD set includes the entire 2 seasons of the series, but the runtime is about 180 minutes. How is that possible? There are supposed to be two seasons. The truth of the matter is that the first season is only 8 episodes long and the second season is only 4 episodes long. Each episode is about 12 minutes long, just like Cromartie High School or Galaxy Angel. Keep this in mind, just so you don't buy this expecting a lot more episodes.
