When will the anime “Dororo Season 2” be released?
At the moment there is no reliable information about the release of the sequel to the “Dororo Season 2” anime. The very high ratings of the season 1 gave viewers hope for an early return of the main characters, but the creators of the anime are in no hurry to take on new episodes. We continue to follow the news and will update the information as soon as the official data is released.
The story of the anime should be well known to viewers who read the manga or saw the first adaptation of 1969.
Angry and merciless Daigo Kagemitsu for the sake of obtaining power gives 48 demons on one organ of his young son. To protect Hyakkimaru from death, the boy’s mother throws him into the river. Fortunately, the child does not die. A disabled person is picked up by Dr. Jukai, who supplies the boy with artificial limbs in place of the lost body parts.
Growing up, the young man set out to take revenge and take away from the demons what was stolen from him. Thanks to an acquaintance with doctor Hyakkimaru survives and becomes a great warrior. To recover the lost parts of the body, he is going to find all the demons and kill each of them. Only in this case, his organs will return to the site.
Helping him in the search will be a little thief Dororo, who calls himself “the greatest thief in all of Japan”. Perhaps it is in such a strange and unusual alliance that there is a hidden power that will help travelers realize their plans…
