North American video distributor Discotek Media announced on Tuesday that it has licensed the Dororo television anime series.

Dororo is a 26-episode black-and-white anime series produced in 1969. Tezuka Productions describes the story:

The setting is the middle of the Muromachi Period, during the 1470s after the Wars of Onin and Bunmei. The story begins in the Noto Peninsula of the Hokuriku District. The main character (Hyakkimaru), who lacks as much as 48 body parts, obtains a fake body and eliminates 48 monsters that were made from his body to retrieve his missing body parts.
The anime adapts the original 1967 Dororo manga series by manga and anime pioneer Osamu Tezuka. Vertical released the manga in a collected volume in 2012. A live-action film adaptation starring Kou Shibasaki and Satoshi Tsumabuki premiered in Japan in 2007.

Discotek will release the complete Dororo television anime series with English subtitles. Anime Sols held crowdfunding campaigns for two DVD sets for the series, but the service will shut down on May 1.
