Go Nagai Draws 'Dororo and Enma-kun' Crossover 1-Shot Manga
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Nihonbungeisha's Weekly Manga Goraku magazine published Go Nagai and Dynamic Pro's "Dororo to Enma-kun" crossover one-shot manga on Friday.
The one-shot features a meeting between Go Nagai's Dororon Enma-kun title character with Osamu Tezuka's Dororo title character. In the manga, an adult Dororo and Enma-kun meet and work together to exterminate yōkai.
The Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum will host the one-shot's manuscripts until February 2013.
Vertical published Tezuka's Dororo manga in 2008, and then re-released the series in omnibus form earlier this year. The Eisner Award-winning 1960s manga follows demon-hunting ronin and a young orphan thief. The manga inspired a 1969 anime by Tezuka's Mushi Pro.
In Go Nagai's Dororon Enma-kun supernatural anime and manga franchise, Enma-kun, Yukiko Hime, and Kapaeru are members of a Demon Patrol that are sent to the human world to arrest demons. The franchise received a more recent television anime series in 2011 that NIS America released in North America in September.
