Aug 31: Dorohedoro

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 31, 2010, 8:52 AM
Dorohedoro
Manga Muscle Girls「漫画の筋肉娘」

Manga Muscle Girl Noi by elee0228

Dorohedoro「ドロヘドロ」by Q. Hayashida「林田球」 is a very interesting manga made even better by the presence of Noi「能井」.  The world of Dorohedoro is a magical one, and each character possesses a unique power and interesting masks.  Noi is partnered with Shin as an assassin for a powerful family.  Her specialty is healing magic and her mask is grotesque devil that belies her beauty.  When she was younger, she was a very cute but as an adult she's a knockout who knows how to handle herself.  According to the japanese Wikipedia entry for Dorohedoro, Noi's vitals are:

Height: 209cm (6'10")
Weight: 82kg (180 lbs)
Foot size: 30cm (12")
Bust: 104cm (41")
Eyes: Red
Hair: Silver

Those are some pretty impressive numbers!  I was compelled to commission IDarkShadowI for fanart of Noi which you can see up top next to the cover of volume 1.  He finished it just recently, which gave me some time to complete the color work and have it ready in time for this journal entry.

This series was originally serialized in Sigikki, a japanese seinen anthology and is still an on-going series.  Viz has owns the english distribution rights, and has made some chapters available online under the Viz Signature IKKI imprint.  The first volume is available for purchase (Amazon), and seeing how its one of the few manga series with a gorgeous muscle girl as a main character, I highly recommend you pick this up.  Here are a bunch of samples of the great stuff you'll find of Noi from the series:



I scoured the interwebs for more images of Noi, and came up with nice fanart:



... and there's a ton of stuff over at Pixiv.  While browsing Pixiv, I also came across an image of a topless Noi together with a topless Jason (NSFW) from Kotaro Makaritoru.  I thought that was pretty cool.  You'll need a Pixiv account to see the image, so check out my Pixiv Guide if you don't have one yet.  If you've been following my Pixiv Archive threads, you probably have seen some of these before:



This brings us to the end of the daily updates in August.  I wanted to end on a high note, and I hope I've succeeded.  It was very hard to keep posting quality material every day, but it forced me to post stuff I've been saving.  I'll go back to my normal posting frequency of one or two posts a week after this.  Thanks for reading.

As a foot fetishist with a thing for taller women with bigger feet, size 12 for being 6'10 is ridiculously small. She is still one of my all time favorite characters, though!

It's listed up top, where it say's her Japanese wikipedia entry lists her vitals. Actually, I messed up quite a bit. It lists her actual foot length at 12 inches (30 cm). That's actually closer to a female size 16 in the US. So rather proportional actually!

It's serialized in Japan, so you have to wait a few months for each book. Or do you mean in your country?

Yeah, in my country! There was a time were the manga like Dorohedoro where all the rage so they grabbed the exclusive but the sales weren't good and they dropped it...Just restarting the serialization without proper advertising :( . Now they are catching up with the japanese serialization but i'm preoccupied 'cause they really like to drop things with a mere drop of sales.

That's too bad. It happens in the US too. Guess it's better to pick up the Japanese volumes sometimes.

Instant love! :)
