Dororo 2019 (2nd anime adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's thriller manga)

Shorthand: A swordsman with an artificial body kills demons to regain his real body. Hyakkimaru is that swordsman while Dororo is the bratty thief following him.

Tezuka initially drew the manga for Shonen Sunday from 8/27/1967-7/22/1968. The manga was cancelled with no resolution to its story.Back in 1969, the Tezuka manga was adapted into a 26-episode anime by Mushi Productions and was imported to the west via Discotek. In 2004, Blood Will Tell, a SEGA game released for the PS2, adapted the manga as a videogame.

An upcoming adaptation will be released on Amazon Prime video at 1/2019, drawn by both Studio MAPPA and Tezuka Productions. Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Gundam Unicorn) will direct and Yasuko Kobayashi (Kamen Rider) will write the scripts.

I hope this series is awesome.

We did the translation for the live action movie a while back. It was fun, but they never did the sequels to them disappointingly.

Let's hope the new anime adaptation will have an ending.

I apologize for the necro, but I've found something interesting in light of the new trailer.

Remember Kazuma Kendate's actor, Hiroki Suzuki (Not the guy who played Jan) from Decade?? He's Hyakkimaru in the anime and the live-stage adaptation.

Naoya Uchida is playing Kagemitsu, the guy who deals with the 48 demons. Akio Otsuka's also in the anime as Jukai/the doctor who created Hyakki's prosthetic organs and limbs.
