Dorei-ku The Animation Ep. 4: We need more dog and less shota

Laaaaaaaaaaame. They just had to go and make the shota the evil mastermind, huh? But you’re probably wondering how we got here. Well, read on.

— So I was wrong about that guy from last week’s episode. He’s not Ryuuou. Instead, he’s Chuo, and he’s collecting slaves for the little kid. Oh well!

— We get a bit of Zenichi’s backstory, but I’m not really sure why I would care. After all, he seems like a shithead rapist who wants to prey on women. Nevertheless, he’s apparently responsible for Ayaka’s injured eye. I think it’s really lame that these characters are going to be interconnected to quite this extent.

— A couple of yakuzas try to accost Zenichi for hurting Ayaka, but the guy quickly murders one of them. At the very least, it looks like he did. So what does this make Ayaka? Some sort of prostitute? Or just a hostess herself?

— Zenichi’s brutish feat catches the attention of a shady dude with a handlebar mustache. He then formally introduces Zenichi to the SCM device. What does he want? He wants female slaves for his businesses in the red light district. They’re all shitbags, basically. Even Yuta is interested in acquiring slaves despite what he initially told Eia.

— This leads us right to the encounter at the park. Y’know, the one where good boi saves the day.

— By uttering this simple sentence, Zenichi unwittingly challenges the dog to a duel. Funny. We all know what happens next.

— Chuo then tries to convince Zenichi to become “their” ally instead. Somehow, I don’t think Ryuuou innocently wants allies. Zenichi obviously refuses, so he’ll have to be subdued via a duel. Chuo was about to challenge the guy, but Taiju wants revenge for Shiori’s mistreatment.

— Yeah, Zenichi doesn’t have to accept the challenge, but Taiju has a brick, so it’s basically tit-for-tat. These guys are all terrible.

— What I don’t understand is how Julia ends up winning her “duel” with Taiju. She had to help him save Shiori in order to win, but she didn’t do anything. The dog saved Shiori. How does this count as a win for Julia? I guess we’ll just have to roll with it. Since Taiju lost to Julia, this also means Shiori now becomes her slave as well. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

— Taiju is also incredibly stupid. Sure, Shiori is no longer in danger of being raped by Zenichi, but he has no fucking clue what Ryuuou even wants. Sounds to me like you’re going from one bastard to another.

— The person who deserves the most pity of all is Shiori. She has no goddamn clue what’s going on. She’s still in a daze from being cruelly beaten by Zenichi, and now she’s become a slave to some random person she’s never met. Taiju should’ve released her if he truly cared about her, but I guess he now feels indebted to Julia.

— And guess what?! Good boi used to belong to Eia! Every single character is connected! Imagine that!

— Chuo wants the dog as well… for their “work.” But when Yuta confronts him, the guy instantly decides to leave. I guess it’s too early for him to challenge Eia and Yuta. Maybe he somehow knows he that victory isn’t assured.

— Anyways, Eia wants to remove Good boi’s SCM, but the dog refuses. Hey, it gets to be the master now!

— Meanwhile, it turns out Yuta had stolen his money from someone with a lion avatar.

— All of a sudden, we are introduced to Zero, i.e. yet another new face. This sad sap has no life. All he does is work the assembly line in a shitty bread factory at night, then locks himself away in his home.

— Cute cat. Wait, does it have an SCM too?!

— That’s when this kid strikes up a conversation with Zero. We had seen him in an earlier episode lurking around Eia. The kid claims he wants revenge for his father, and Zero ends up being guilted into helping out.

— Oh look, he does have eyes.

— Honestly, why would you trust anyone who wears those shoes and socks together with boy shorts and suspenders? Someone with that sort of fashion sense has to be evil.

— Zero thinks he has to duel Chuo, and right off the bat, the setup is suspicious. They have to take turn answering trivia questions, and whoever gets three correct answers first wins. But isn’t that inherently unfair? The person who goes first gets a major advantage.

— Then the big plot twist drops: Zero wasn’t dueling Chuo at all! Instead, he was actually up against the little kid! And finally, we’re right back where we started at the top of the post: the little kid is none other than Ryuuou, and he targeted Zero simply because he thought it might be fun. Also, no one would give a shit if Zero suddenly disappeared. Great.

— I dunno, man… this episode went back to being boring. Granted, it would’ve been tough to top last week’s ending. I mean, how do you beat a dog enslaving some asshole rapist, right? But still, none of this week’s myriad twists and turns are all that interesting. They seem pretty rote and tired to me. Even the Ryuuou reveal only manages to raise an eyebrow and nothing more.

— At some point, we’ll have to revisit Lucie and her rapist. I wonder when that’ll happen.

  1. Every character in this anime are soo dumb, who would willingly put into its mouth some shady looking object like an SCM? and even if I’m dumb enough to think its not a big deal the moment that shit starts to vibrate inside my mouth I would instintively throw that garbage away… before is too late like it clearly happened to Zero in this episode.

    So the shota being evil was so obvios, but he had to be Ryuuou too? what the hell? that’s soo lame, now his henious crimes will be excused as: he’s just missunderstood kid, and that sucks.

    1. Naw, man… people all thought he stole that wallet, so that totally means he has to help this strange kid he’s never met before!
