Dorohedoro” immerses us in a dark and ruthless setting called Hole, a decadent and chaotic district where the law of the strongest reigns, and death is as common as the dust that collects in its alleys. This realm, isolated from all ethics and legality, serves as a testing ground for those who possess the mastery of magic, an elite that considers the inhabitants of Hole mere insects, willing to be killed, mutilated or used as experimental subjects without the slightest hint of remorse.

In this bleak landscape, the magic users wield unbridled power, with little challenge to their authority and unfettered access to Hole’s misery. They seem indomitable to most, but not to all. Caiman, a figure more reptilian than human, stands as an exception. Armed with a pair of bayonets and a unique immunity to magic, Caiman relentlessly pursues magic users in search of answers that will allow him to regain his normal life, cursed by his appearance and tormented by nightmares that haunt him.

Despite the difficulties he faces, Caiman is not alone in his odyssey. Nikaidou, his companion and owner of the Hungry Bug restaurant, becomes his most valuable ally. With their free access to the septic tank and determination to challenge the magic users, this odd couple ventures into a world where the line between human and monster is blurred, and the struggle for survival and normalcy rages in the sinister alleys of Hole.
