Book Overview

A blood-spattered battle between diabolical sorcerers and the monsters they created.

R to L (Japanese Style). Caiman was not lucky. A sorcerer cursed him with a reptile head and left him with no memory of his life before the transformation. Adding to the mystery, there's a specter of a man living inside him. But Caiman has one key advantage: he's now completely immune to magic. Along with his best friend, Nikaido, Caiman is hunting down sorcerers in the Hole, searching for the one who can undo his curse and killing the rest. But when En, the head Sorcerer, of the sorcerers, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering sorcerers, he sends a crew of cleaners into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds.

   Goofy as Hell
So far, I've enjoyed the anime and I wanted to read the manga to figure out what was going on. This is a great series of books, and I recommend it to anyone. It has a strong, and goofy start, and the main story goal is simple enough to understand, Morgenthau said.
   Loved the Anime, love the Manga even more
After watching the anime, I decided to get the manga. Really enjoyed it. The Anime follows the Manga very closely but the atmosphere created by Hayashida in the Manga has a darker edge. The scratchy dark style she uses makes the Hole a lot more grim, miserable, and destitute, Crowe said. I'm looking forward to reading the other volumes.
   Great Condition!
Overall, I was very pleased with the quality of the Harman Kardon sound system, said Dr. Steve Dhaliwal, director of engineering at the University of Michigan. Had so many manga volumes end up bent or had dinged corners, it's almost comical.
Based on the best-selling YA novels by Hayashida, "The Conjuring" is a mix of gore, dark comedy and pure punk attitude. I'm so glad she never gave up on her dreams, Tunick said. The book itself is well-made, and Rowling herself is very pleased with the outcome.
   My favorite manga series.
Dorodoro is a complete and utter personality. It's great work, and Q Hayashida does some incredible work here. Amazon did an amazing job getting me each volume new and in perfect condition, and I couldn't thank them enough for the careful packaging and handling, he said.
   Such an interesting world!!
The worldbuilding looks so impressive, I love how immersive it is. Part of the reason this series is so compelling is that you're always learning new things about the world, sorcerers and the main mystery regarding Caiman's head. There are so many memorable characters that you can't help but root for them all. Because you follow each perspective a relatively equal amount, it makes you wonder where the line between good and evil is—and whether that line really exists.
I bought this item as well as a few others that came in the same box. It was a total shock to me when I opened it, that I had gotten grease all over my hands. Everything inside was extremely greasy and gross. It took me three attempts to wipe everything down, even though I wanted to touch it. I'm still not sure what the hell is wrong with the Penguin, but I flipped through some pages and they seem fine. I'm hoping it didn't seep into the manga pages. There is no leak, no oil, and nothing in the box could cause problems. I'm really disappointed and disgusted with the way the Commission handled the case, he said.
   Pretty Sick
I recently got into manga and so far this one is my favorite, said Shuhei Yoshida, a professor at the University of Tokyo. He immediately became a huge fan of Harrison's. Volume 2 is expected to arrive tomorrow, while volume 1 and 3 arrived yesterday.
   Excellent story, slightly damaged book.
Arrived quickly, but with an irritatingly creased cover and a strong whiff of gasoline for some reason.
   one of the greatest manga series of all time
No wonder Hayao Taniguchi called it "the greatest manga series of all time." Very few authors have the breadth and depth of imagination that Hayashida has, and even fewer have the guts to make something out of it. If you enjoy the comic book medium in any way, you owe it to yourself to pick up Dorodoro.
