Dorohedoro, a highly anticipated upcoming TV anime abased on the ecclectic dark fantasy adventure manga by Q Hayashida about a lizard-headed man trying to get his normal head back.An English language version of the Dorohedoro manga is available from Viz Manga, who describe the story of the series as follows:
In a city so dismal it’s known only as “the Hole,” a clan of Sorcerers have been plucking people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious “experiments” in the black arts. In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, they’re hunting and killing the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they’ll kill the right one. But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of “cleaners” into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds.
Dorohedoro will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX and other stations on Sundays during the 24:00 time slot beginning on January 12, 2020. The series will also be digitally distributed on Netflix.
