Dorohedoro(Lizard Head) is getting an anime adaptation!

Just wanted to evangelize and get more people into this series after learning about this old news. Dorohedoro is a black-humor mystery manga set in a post-apocalyptic world ruled by magic. Its a charming series while being super original in terms of presentation and plot. Its super gory so its kind of a miracle this got green lit.

They had to clean up the Mangaka's style to animate so you cant quite see it but her style is super grungy and dirty in a fun way. Think Akira but heavily inspired by punk zine art. If I piqued your interest be warned it has a very unconventional plot structure that might be off putting to those who like more traditional narratives.

Never heard of it, it looks AMAZING!!

Go check out the Manga its a real gem. I only found out about this series last year trawling through manga sites for something decent to read.
If you like it and want something similar in tone check out chainsaw man if you haven't already.

Anime is pulp media. I ain't surprised on this being green lit; I'd be surprised if it gets dubbed and finds success outside the niche audience.

Anime has a lot of niches, but with so much moa around it might draw a lot of attention based on that. We will have to wait and see if the demand is there. That said, it might be like Trigun or Cowboy Bebop and more popular on the other side of the ocean than in the motherland, and we'll need one by then.

And weirder shit is MAPPA's comfort zone anyway.
