Due to the relentless sweep of the coronavirus pandemic, there isn't much that one can do, apart from sitting and waiting till it's all over. Streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime are doing their best to alleviate the stress in the one way they know how: Releasing shows for people to binge-watch. In this regard, Netflix's dark anime 'Dorohedoro' is going to be streaming soon. Fans of the manga, you have something to look forward to. Others, if you're up for something dark and bizarrely twisted, how about watching a man trying to undo his lizard head curse while on the quest of rediscovering his identity and trying to revive memories of his former life. Along the way, he has to be wary of powerful sorcerers who just want to kill him. We warned you it was twisted. 

 So here's all you need to know about the anime.

Release date

'Dorohedoro' is releasing on Netflix, on May 28, Thursday.

Plot 

The official synopsis on Netflix reads, "Amnesiac Caiman seeks to undo his lizard heard curse by killing the sorcerer responsible, with his friend Nikaido's help. In the Hole, that's a threat." In case you found that complicated, here's a better context. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting, which is split into two dimensions. One is the Hole, where humans reside, and another is Sorcerer's world. These are two different species, even though they seem similar. Humans evolve naturally, while sorcerers were created by a devil called Chidaruma. 

After his transformation, Caiman attacks sorcerers, biting their head off, where a strange face will appear and tell him, whether this is the sorcerer responsible for his current state. This catches the attention of a powerful sorcerer named En, who sends his minions out to kill Caiman.

Voice cast

Wakaru Takagi will voice Caiman and Reina Kondu will voice Nikaido. The rest of the voice cast includes Ken' yu Horiuchi,  and Yoshimasa Yosaya.

Creators

The show has been created by Yûichirô Hayashi, and is based on the manga written and illustrated by Q Hayashida. 

Trailer
