Based on a widely popular manga series by Q Hayashida, Dorohedoro is a dark fantasy that does not conform to a single genre. The gritty and twisted storyline makes the anime a very interesting watch.

The official description reads:

In the district known as Hole, the strong prey on the weak and death is a common occurrence in day to day life. Separated from the laws and ethics that we are bound to, Hole has become a cesspool that magic dominate, using Hole’s inhabitants as a means for testing. Disgusted by the way the people of Hole are treated, Kaimon, a man of reptilian nature leads a personal hunt against those that run society in his quest for answers. Cursed by his appearance, only magic users can grant him a normal life once again.

Season one premiered exclusively in Japan in January 2020 and has a total of 12 episodes.

Netflix also released the names of artists who have given their voices to various characters for the English version of Dorohedoro.
