Sentai Snaps Up Acclaimed “Dororo” Anime

HOUSTON, TX — March 29, 2021 — Sentai announced today that it acquired distribution rights to the critically acclaimed supernatural action series Dororo, based on the manga of the same name by legendary mangaka Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, Black Jack). Sentai’s deal includes distribution rights for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Nordic and Scandinavian countries.

During the Warring States period, the young thief Dororo encounters the enigmatic “Hyakkimaru,” a strange, sightless boy who wields fearsome prosthetics in place of his missing limbs. Parts of Hyakkimaru’s body, skin and organs were traded to a group of 12 demons by Hyakkimaru’s father in exchange for power and prosperity, but thanks to a kindly medicine man, Hyakkimaru survived his horrifying ordeal. Now he wanders the land in search of his missing body parts, and together he and Dororo will fight to survive in a demon-plagued, dangerous and unforgiving world.

Dororo is animated by Tezuka Productions (Young Black Jack, The Quintessential Quintuplets) and MAPPA (Ushio & Tora, Inuyashiki); it is produced by Twin Engine (Karakuri Circus, Vinland Saga) and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Hunter x Hunter). Yasuko Kobayashi (Kakegurui, Attack on Titan) provides series composition. The series stars Hiroki Suzuki (Saiyuki musicals, Kamen Rider Decade) as Hyakkimaru, Rio Suzuki (Modest Heroes, Yae no Sakura) as Dororo, Akio Otsuka (Black Jack, Mob Psycho 100) as Jukai and Chie Nakamura (Naruto, Devilman: Crybaby) as Nuinokata.

Sentai Unveils “Vinland Saga” Home Video Plans

HOUSTON, TX — May 20, 2021 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive home video distribution rights to critically acclaimed Vinland Saga, WIT STUDIO’s Viking-inspired anime epic based on the award-winning manga of the same name. Originally a streaming-only release, Sentai is now readying Vinland Saga for home video and targeting a Summer 2021 release. Sentai is planning both collector and standard editions for this highly anticipated series.

Raised on tales of the legendary land of Vinland, where warmth and plenty abound, young Thorfinn dreams of leaving behind the cold climate of Iceland and venturing into the great unknown. But when Viking sails appear on the horizon, the young boy is conscripted into a life of violence and brutality at the hands of merciless Viking Askalaad. With nothing left to him save revenge, Thorfinn swears vengeance against the man who slew his family, plunging headlong into a sprawling, blood-soaked, coming-of-age epic that marches to the drums of war.

Vinland Saga is animated by WIT STUDIO (Attack on Titan, Great Pretender, The Ancient Magus’ Bride) and directed by Shuhei Yabuta (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: Director, Inuyashiki: CG Director, No Game, No Life: CG Director). Hiroshi Seko (Jujutsu Kaisen, Mob Psycho 100, Dorohedoro) provides the series’ script and series composition; Kenta Ihara (Ajin: Demi-Human, The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious) provides the series’ script and screenplay.

The series was awarded Anime of the Year at the 6th Anime Trending Awards, with Gerald Rathkolb of Otaku USA stating, “[Vinland Saga] is one of those rare anime that could have appeal outside of the anime sphere because of its setting and focus on complex characters and the excellent political intrigue ever-present in the show. It comes with my highest recommendation."
