The creditless opening video of the TV anime series Dororo has been officially released on YouTube. The song which shares the same name as the series is performed by ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION.

 

Dororo is a manga series by Osamu Tezuka about a rōnin named Hyakkimaru whose father bartered away 48 of his body parts to 48 demons so he could obtain the power to rule the country. The story follows Hyakkimaru who now has fake body parts as he tries to defeat the 48 demons to retrieve his real parts. On the way he meets a young thief called Dororo.

 

The song will be released as a double A-side single entitled Dororo/Kaihouku on May 15, 2019. It will also receive an early digital release on April 22.

 

Talking about the song and series, the band made the following statement: “It is a profound and multilayered series that shows satire towards modern society and people behind its setting and old, mysterious story. We put love into making the song so as not to not let down the manga’s author Tezuka.”
