Alternate Title



Dorohedoro tells the story of Caiman, a man with amnesia who wakes up with a lizard head. He and his friends live in “the Hole” which is a dangerous city that has a clan of sorcerers who are taking people right off the street to perform experiments on using the black arts. Nikaido and Caiman join together to hunt down those orchestrating the atrocities and kill them one by one. However, En, a powerful player in the world of mages, finds out about this and sends a crew of “cleaners” to kill Caiman, Nikaido, and anyone who poses a threat to his abysmal goals. In the Hole, a full-out war breaks out!
