It’s October and that means it’s time to get into the spirit of the season, and obviously nothing gets you into the Halloween mood better than horror. Unfortunately when it comes to most live-action horror films, there’s only so much that can be done and shown, but thankfully of all things, Anime can cross the line with story, gore, and intriguing storytelling. So for every day this month, I’ll be featuring a unique Anime that fits the horror genre that you can most likely find on any streaming service. Let’s get magically weird with Dorohedoro!
Dorohedoro (2020) takes us to a post-apocalyptic world known as “The Hole” where its citizens are targeted by sorcerers that travel between the human world and theirs. The story revolves around a man named Caiman who had his head turned into a lizard leaving him with no memory of how it happened but leaves him immune from magical attacks.
This 12 episode series based on the manga by the same name, spouts a unique animation style, gritty art, gory action, with a mix of comedy that will leave you wanting more like how Caiman can never get enough gyoza.
