On January 9, the official website of Dorohedoro TV announced that the anime would come back as a web series.
To commemorate the sequel, the franchise shared a new key visual and a comment from the author of the series, Q Hayashida.
I have never been so happy to have a continuation of the “Dorohedoro” anime!
I would like to thank everyone involved in this project.
The production has been in progress for quite some time now, and I have been looking forward to watching it.
It has been a little while since the first season.
I hope you will come back to the world of “Dorohedoro” animation.

Q. Hayashida wrote and illustrated the Dorohedoro manga. It began serialization in Shogakukan’s Monthly Ikki from November 2000 to September 2014, later from March 2015 to August 2017 in Hibana.
Later in November 2017, it began serialization on Monthly Shonen Sunday and continued the serialization until September 2018.
The manga in total collected 23 tankobon volumes.
The first season of the anime debuted in Japan in January 2020, running for 12 episodes.
Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and it describes the first volume as:
In a city so dismal it’s known only as “the Hole,” a clan of Sorcerers have been plucking people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious “experiments” in the black arts.
In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, they’re hunting and killing the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they’ll kill the right one.
But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of “cleaners” into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds.
