Kagemitsu is the head of a country experiencing nirvana and at a hall within a certain temple, he prays to twelve fierce god statues for territorial prosperity. In exchange for his wish to be granted, Kagemitsu’s heir was born with a disabled body. An unwanted child, he was set adrift on a river to be thrown away.
Time has marched on and Kagemitsu’s agreement with the fierce gods has been realized: peace has arrived for the country. Then one day, a child bandit named Dororo meets a certain man… but is he human or devil...?
‘Hyakkimaru’ has a sword embedded in both of his arms and his entire body has been altered. With his unseeing eyes, he focuses on the monsters coming to attack.
Three Episode Impression
Many of us anime fans weren’t alive when Dororo was first created back in the late 60s. Despite this, Dororo has continued to be considered a classic and has finally been given a more modern anime creation with a 2019 release that is currently ongoing as we speak! Dororo three episodes in has truly wowed us here at Honey’s Anime thanks to some truly amazing narration, animation, music and unique themes that blend supernatural with samurai action. With the show being created by Studio MAPPA—the studio behind shows like Banana Fish and Inuyashiki—Dororo is sure to be a solid series with plenty of action and epic drama.
