Update on Dorohedoro season 2
Fans of Q Hayashida’s Dorohedoro manga and anime will have to make do with the 6 OVA to be released soon as the 2nd season of the anime does not have a release date yet.
It is important to note that the season 1 has animated all the manga chapters, leaving no more source material content for animation of the new season. However there is a feeling that while the OVA stalls we will get more content to adapt.
There are high Hope’s that a 2nd season would be produced in 2021, as we get to see Kaiman and Nikiado and the search for the sorcerer who turned Kaiman into a lizard-man.
The first season was produced by studio Mappa, which is well known for its work on Dororo. Yuichiro Hayashi led the production team. The anime premiered on January 13th and it was also streamed by Netflix.
