Are you ready to lay your mind and body on the line with Doreiku?
The mature manga Dore-iku: Boku to 23-nin no Dorei (Slave District: 23 Slaves and Me) by Shinichi Okada and Hiroto Ohishi has earned an anime adaptation titled: Doreiku the Animation. A new promo just dropped and revealed it’s April 12th premiere date.
This psychosexual thriller features a game between 24 people outfitted with an SCM (Slave Control Method).
The loser becomes the winner’s slave, but the outcome is far worse than advertised: while the slave keeps their awareness, they lose complete control over their body. This results in some disturbing consequences for the loser who can only escape under very special conditions.
Ryoichi Kuraya (Tsugumomo) is writing and directing the adaption, with Zero-G (DIVE!!) and TNK (High School DxD) co-producing the animation. Junji Goto is (High School DxD / School Days) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director.

The song featured in the trailer is the ED song “BJ”, which is performed by the voice actress and singer Pile. The 29-year-old is most known for voicing Maki Nishikino in the Love Live! franchise.
The Doreiku manga is based on Okada’s original novel series. Two sequels have been produced along with a live-action film, and the series has more than 3.3 million copies in circulation.
