Caiman puts the bite on a sorcerer (and talks with his mouth full) in a scene from the upcoming Dorohedoro TV anime.

 

Some quick news for fans of a bit of the ol' head-biting ultra-violence: Dorohedoro, the TV anime adaptation based on Q Hayashida's darkly humorous dark fantasy manga about a man cursed with a serious case of "tragic reptile face", is heading to Netflix in the United States and other world markets beginning in May of 2020.

 

 

The original Dorohedoro manga was serialized in Shogakukan's Monthly Shōnen Sunday magazine. An English language version of Dorohedoro is also published by 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.

 

The "pop" key visual for Dorohedoro, featuring main characters Caiman and Nikaido running amok in The Hole.

 

The Dorohedoro TV anime is directed by Yuichiro Hayashi and features animation production by MAPPA. The series recently concluded its Japanese TV broadcast on Tokyo MX, BS11, and Mainichi Broadcasting System, and it hits Netflix in the United States and other world markets on May 28, 2020.
