Although the series was originally released back in 1969, the 2019 Dororo remake did not fail to satisfy the fans of the Dark Fantasy genre. The dark and moody tones in a samurai setting barely left anything to be desired for the fans.

Fans of the series were excited after the announcement of the official dub back in March, and their patience has been rewarded.

The Dororo dub is set to be released on June 29 on Sentai Filmworks’ official website through Blu-ray and digital release.

They have also released a clip from the upcoming Dororo dub on their official Youtube channel.

The clip showcases Hyakkimaru defeating a demon in his signature stoic fashion, ripping his arms off to reveal his secret swords, and saving Dororo in the process. Dororo is fascinated by Hyakkimaru’s style, especially his ability to defeat the demon without even looking at him.
