“If you’re one of the anime fans who are desperately waiting for Dororo season 2 release date, read on to find out more.”

Dororo is undoubtedly one of the best anime MAPPA has ever animated, given how it deviates from its traditional animation, and it must have been challenging for the studio to adjust to the manga panels. Regardless, the result was a masterpiece anime that captured the viewers’ attention right from the initial episodes and only got better with each one.

It is even more surprising to learn that the current anime is a remake of an already existing series released in 1969. While that was a work of art in itself, the present anime surpassed it in all aspects. It’s only natural to wonder about the second season, especially after such a fantastic ending to the first one. So, will there be Dororo season 2? Let’s get into specifics with a more detailed conversation, shall we?

Is there a release date for Dororo season 2?

So far, MAPPA hasn’t disclosed any information regarding the second season of Dororo, and seeing as how it is busy with specific projects like Jujutsu Kaisen, it may not come anytime soon.

Since the first season was released in 2019, if there was a second season in the works, we would have at least gotten an announcement regarding its plot and such by now. Seeing as how there are reveals whatsoever, we can assume that at least a second season is not in their plans for now.

What is the plot of Dororo season 2?

If there is anything else that fans of Dororo manga were disappointed with, it is the direction the story went in the anime, which is a little different from its source. At the end of the first season, we see Hyakkimaru regain his eyesight and reunite with Dororo.

So, if the anime plans to return for another season, we would likely see another adventure from the duo; perhaps Dororo will become crucial in this one by learning sword skills and assisting Hyakkimaru. Since there is no indication of another season yet, we don’t have a clear plot for Dororo season 2.

Will there be season 2 for Dororo?

Not that we have to drop a bomb outright, but the story of Dororo and Hyakkimaru has already been told in the anime, with each getting befitting endings, although it was a bit rushed compared to the manga. Furthermore, there are four volumes in the manga which are split into 19 chapters.

And the anime adapted the entire story into the anime that ran for 24 episodes. So, it is incredibly hard to receive a second season for the anime. However, it’s not the end of the road yet because another could come in any form.

So, it all comes down to whether MAPPA has decided on providing fans with a second season, and if it is, it has to create an entirely new storyline, which is not that hard, but without manga material, it might lose its originality. The best it could do is give us a couple of OVAs covering the next endeavors of Hyakkimaru and Dororo; then, fans wouldn’t complain for another season.

Dororo Season 2: Where to Watch?

Dororo’s first season is available to watch on Prime Video in most regions, and given how Prime Video is streamed in over 240 countries, it is hard to miss the show with any licensing issues.

So, you can watch the first season of Dororo in it, but since there is no second season for the anime yet, it is obviously impossible to watch it. In any case, we’ll link Dororo’s first season to make it easier for you; when you want to rewatch this masterpiece.
