A lot of great anime are available exclusively in Japan and anime fans worldwide are deprived of these amazing shows.
However, top platforms like Netflix and entertainment companies like Crunchyroll and Funimation are giving it their best to bring quality content from Japan to the world.
While Crunchyroll and Funimation mainly focus on distribution in North America, Netflix is turning into a savior for the whole world. In addition to this, Netflix is also helping anime films which were canceled to be released again.
A good instance of this is the Dorohedoro TV anime. Dorohedoro was released in Japan and was broadcast there from January to March. Netflix released it worldwide on Thursday, 28th May. All 12 episodes of the anime can now be watched on Netflix.
The anime adaptation of the original manga was announced back in December 2018. The anime was directed by Yuichiro Hayashi and produced by MAPPA Studios.
Hiroshi Seko was in charge of series composition while the characters were designed by Tomohiro Kishi. It premiered in Tokyo on 12th January 2020 on Tokyo MX. It ran for 12 episodes, and six original video animations with the Blu-Ray release of the series.
Dorohedoro is a Japanese manga series penned and illustrated by Q Hayashida. It was serialized in Monthly Ikki by Shogakukan since 2000, and after the magazine ceased, it was moved to Hibana in 2015. After the termination of Hibana in 2017, the series was shifted to Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine by Shogakukan in the same year. The manga ended in September 2018 with 167 chapters and 23 compiled volumes. A 14-page special chapter was released in the magazine on 12th February 2020. Viz Media began distribution of the English translation of the manga digitally in 2009.
The plot revolves around a man named Caiman and his search for his true identity. He was transformed into a man with a reptile’s head by a sorcerer, and his memories about his former life were wiped clean.
Along with his friend Nikaido, he attacks the sorcerers of the Hole to kill the man who left him like that. It also helps that Caiman is immune to magic.
