Dorohedoro Anime is Getting a Sequel as a Streaming Series!
The official website for the TV adaptation of Q Hayashida's manga, "Dorohedoro," recently made an exciting announcement. Brace yourself for some good news—there's a sequel on the horizon, and it's not just any sequel; it's coming as a streaming series. The reveal comes alongside a teaser visual, adding to the anticipation of what's to come.
For those unfamiliar with the first season, it made its debut on Netflix in Japan back in January 2020, treating viewers to a 12-episode run. The international audience didn't have to wait too long, with Netflix streaming the series outside Japan in May of the same year.
The manga, brought to English readers by Viz Media, sets the stage in a city ominously known as "the Hole." Here, a group of sorcerers has been snatching unsuspecting folks off the streets for downright diabolical experiments in the dark arts. Enter Nikaido, who stumbles upon Caiman—a man sporting a reptilian head and a nasty case of memory loss. Their mission? Take down the sorcerers responsible for the wicked experiments, with the hope that somewhere in the chaos, they'll find the one behind Caiman's reptilian makeover. But it's not all smooth sailing; when En, the head sorcerer, catches wind of a lizard-man wreaking havoc, he sends in a team of "cleaners," sparking a full-blown war between two worlds.
The first season was a visual treat, brought to life under the direction of Yuichiro Hayashi, known for his work on "Garo the Animation," "Garo: Divine Flame," and "Kakegurui." Overseeing the series composition was Hiroshi Seko, the mind behind "Banana Fish," "Mob Psycho 100," and "Vinland Saga." The characters were given life by Tomohiro Kishi, known for his work on "91 Days" and "Garo -Vanishing Line-," while the musical magic was woven by [K]NoW_NAME, the talent behind the soundtracks of "Sakura Quest" and "Fairy gone."
Now, with a sequel on the way, fans can look forward to delving back into the bizarre and captivating world of "Dorohedoro." The announcement of a streaming series means that the excitement is not limited to just one viewing platform, allowing fans worldwide to join in the upcoming adventure. As the teaser visual hints at what's to come, the anticipation for the sequel is building, promising a continuation of the dark and enthralling narrative that "Dorohedoro" has become known for. Get ready for another round of sorcery, lizard-men, and a war that transcends worlds.
