Dororo Season 2 is confirmed for a renewal. Dororo is a Japanese fiction series that started in 1967. The manga was written by Osama Tezuka and then, it started to be posted in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday. The manga was then aired with the help of Mushi Production and featured 26 episodes. Later, Dororo made a comeback in 2019 with 24 episodes and it instantly became a hit and the fans started wondering if there will be a second season of Dororo. The runtime of each episode was approximately 30 minutes.
Dororo Season 2: Release Date
Even though it is anticipated that there will be Dororo Season 2. The release date of the same is still not announced. There are no statistics available. The first season premiered back in 2019 and since then, there has been no news. Dororo was previously co-created by Tezuka Productions and MAPPA. With an IMDb rating of 8.4, Dororo was a huge hit and therefore, it is expected that there will be a Dororo Season 2. The series belongs to the animation, action, adventure, fantasy and horror genres.
Dororo Season 2: Casts
If Dororo renews for a second season, we can see Jason Douglas and Mugihito as the narrator. Further, Rio Suzuki and Chaney Moore as Dororo, Adam Gibbs and Hiroki Suzuki as Hyakkimaru, Ty Mahany as Jukai, Mutsumi Sasaki as Biwamaru and James Belcher as Biwamaru too.
Before figuring out what the plot of Dororo Season 2 can be about, it is first important to make oneself familiarised with the plot of the first volume. The series basically revolves around Hyakkimaru who is born without limbs and few facial features and internal organs. His physical distortion is a result of a deal made by his father with 48 demons. As a child, Hyakkimaru was discarded by his father and he was found by a medicine man who gave him artificial limbs and further taught him how to fight. It was later realized that Hyakkimaru is gifted with special healing powers and also, he learns about the demonic curse too. In the later plot, it was revealed that by killing the demons, he can get back his limbs and he begins his quest to kill the demons. In his journey, he finds Dororo, an orphan thief. Dororo was embedded with a map to a treasure that was stolen by her father.
An adventure then begins for Hyakkimaru and Dororo and then enters the antagonist Itachi who is looking for the map. However, in the end, the duo parted their ways. Also, in the later part, Hyakkimaru regains his eyesight and realizes that Dororo is a girl and asks her to be more feminine.
The first season of Dororo went beyond what was originally written in the manga series and therefore, the second series will consist of an entirely new story. Therefore, the plot is hard to predict. However, it is expected that, the viewers will be able to see Itachi as the main antagonist fighting against Dororo and Hyakkimary. The second series might be set several years after the first series. Also, one might see love blooming between Dororo and Hyakkimaru in Dororo Season 2.
The trailer is still not available for obvious reasons. However, once it is officially confirmed that it will be released and the makers start working on the second series, the trailer will be revealed soon. However, till then the fans are only left with anticipation and hope for it.
