All you anime fans out there, no matter how hard this quarantine has been on you, it’s finally your time. The popular Japanese manga series, Dorohedoro will be available to stream on Netflix soon. Netflix announced this on May 21 and fans have been eagerly waiting since.
Considering the large variety of content Netflix is promoting, the release was anticipated following the fanbase on the anime.
Dorohedoro tells the story of the amnesiac reptilian-headed Caiman working together with his friend Nikaido. He tries to recover his memories and survive in a strange and violent world. The series is set in a post-apocalyptic world. Amnesiac Caiman seeks to undo his lizard head curse by killing the sorcerer responsible, with Nikaido’s help. In the Hole, that’s a threat.
It’s an interesting watch and promises to keep its viewers hooked. The Dorohedoro manga is 23 volumes long and is available to read in English.
A 12-episode anime television series adaptation produced by MAPPA was broadcasted from January to March 2020. Dorohedoro has been an exclusive for Japanese viewers for the last 4 months. Its upcoming release on a global platform like Netflix will make it easier for viewers worldwide to stream this masterpiece.
Apart from Dorohedoro, Netflix released other animes like Drifting Dragons and Ghost in the Shell. While anime series like Baki: Part 3, The Seven Deadly Sins: Season 4, Japan Sinks etc are scheduled to release in the near future.
Dorohedoro is the perfect example of an anime as it slowly makes you delve into a bleak world of violence, pain and horror along with deranged characters.
For people like me, for whom anime isn’t the primary binge watch category, Dorohedoro is a good start in the huge world of manga series and anime.
Dorohedoro: Season 1 will be available to stream on Netflix from May 28, 2020.
