The critically acclaimed new take on Osamu Tezuka’s classic Dororo manga is coming home, because Sentai Filmworks officially announced plans to release the new Dororo anime on Blu-ray and through digital download. The series will be available this summer, and this version will include an all-new English dub.
The Dororo anime comes from Tezuka Productions and MAPPA (JUJUTSU KAISEN, The God of High School), with Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Hunter x Hunter) directing the series and Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan) handling series composition. Here’s how Sentai describes it:
During the Warring States period, the young thief Dororo encounters the enigmatic “Hyakkimaru,” a strange, sightless boy who wields fearsome prosthetics in place of his missing limbs. Parts of Hyakkimaru’s body, skin and organs were traded to a group of 12 demons by Hyakkimaru’s father in exchange for power and prosperity, but thanks to a kindly medicine man, Hyakkimaru survived his horrifying ordeal. Now he wanders the land in search of his missing body parts, and together he and Dororo will fight to survive in a demon-plagued, dangerous and unforgiving world.
