Storyline

Daigo Kagemitsu, who works for a Samurai general in Japan's Warring States period, promises to offer body parts of his unborn baby to 48 demons in exchange for complete domination of the country. When the baby boy is born, Daigo has him thrown into a river, expecting the boy to die. A kind sage, however, finds him and adopts him. The sage fits out his poor son with prosthetics. Time goes by and the baby grows into a boy who calls himself Hyakkimaru. Every time Hyakkimaru eliminates a demon, he retrieves one of his body parts. Hyakkimaru rescues a boy thief named Dororo from a band of men whom the young boy tried to rob. Together they travel the countryside in search of the demons who possess Hyakkimaru's parts. Throughout their travels, they face a host of monsters and ghosts.

Such a wonderful job by animator A+
21 March 2019 | by xanawSee all my reviews

Dororo is an anime revolving a born baby which was sacrificed by his father to demons in exchange of power and wealth. The story begins with this child (in his teens) meeting an orphan child and together they embark on a journey to search and eliminate demon ghouls with the scope of retrieving what was taken from this teen as an infant.

The animation is spectacular. It shows the animators dedication in portraying the manga artist story in a simplistic yet stunning way adaptable to these days.

Recommended A+
