Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Dokkoi!!


Suzuo Sakurazaki has just come to the big city for college, but he needs a job. When Tanpopo, a green-haired little girl representing a toy company, offers him a belt that will transform him into the superhero Dokkoida, Suzuo mistakes the whole thing as an advertising gimmick. He realizes too late that it's for real, and toy companies can make weapons, too.

Tanpopo's company and a rival are, in fact, competing to market their super suits to the galactic police. Whichever one is proven more effective will gain a contract for mass production. To test them, the police have unleashed three powerful supervillains and promised a full pardon to whichever of them can successfully unmask our heroes. Everyone is provided Secret Identities, which if found out would render the entire test null and void. Despite this, budget constraints force everyone to be placed in the same apartment building.

And so Suzuo and his "new" little sister "Kosuzu" come to live at the Cosmos House apartment, befriending their (strangely familiar) neighbors while fighting for truth, justice, and winning the contract.

Originally written by Taro Achi as a six-volume light novel series (with illustrations by Yu Yagami), Dokkoida?! also has a three-volume manga (written and drawn by the same pair, released in English by CMX) and a twelve-episode anime series (released in English by Geneon) following the antics of the residents of Cosmos House both on and off the job.


Dokkoida?! provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Asaka/Neuroloid Girl
  • All Men Are Perverts: Parodied when all it takes is a soap opera episode to convince most of the women of Cosmos House that Suzuo is a sex fiend who wants to get it on with his little sister, and Marronflower's input does not help.

 Tanpopo: It looks like [Suzuo] couldn't hurt a fly. I shouldn't judge him by his looks though, 'cause according to even the earliest edition of the Earth manual, all men are basically depraved primates with cell phones.

 Dr. Marronflower: (to Kurika) Can you go through that again, in slow motion?
