Plot Summary


A samurai lord has bartered away his newborn son's organs to forty-eight demons in exchange for dominance on the battlefield. Yet, the abandoned infant survives thanks to a medicine man who equips him with primitive prosthetics—lethal ones with which the wronged son will use to hunt down the multitude of demons to reclaim his body one piece at a time, before confronting his father. On his journeys the young hero encounters an orphan who claims to be the greatest thief in Japan.

Episode 1

And it's up without subs at the moment. As this is a Twin Engine show that it's on Amazon, but that's the only agreement they have left.

Pretty interesting story there as Daigo made a deal with the devil submitting his son as an offering for prosperity of the land, and then here comes Dororo as he's stealing to get by, and then comes the prosthetic samurai Hyakkimaru to save him when he gets into trouble. Those two ought to form quite an intriguing relationship seeing that these two are outcasts. I never watched the original series, but with this being a remake it's not required to do so.

The first episode is excellent. Dororo is such a cute but mischievous little brat.
I don’t like the OP song, the ED song is infinitely better.
I think this will be this season’s underrated gem.

Is this 1 cour or 2 cour?

ANN lists it as 26 episodes but I don't remember any source indicating it. I haven't seen the original series but this remake so far impressed me with the storytelling, art style, and even the setting. Really curious to see how they will develop Dororo as a character.

This is a pretty old manga so to see it being resurrected in modern day is quite a fascinating sight.

This adaptation seems interesting, good to see another of Osamu Tezuka works animated.

Not gonna lie, this gave me chills for some reason. I’m sure it’s the imagery and the animation but I loved it! Now for the worse part of a new season of anime... the week long waits for the next episode.

Certainly seems to be right up Amazon's preference for licensing. Interesting that the series is named after the young thief accompanying the young man questing to get his bodyparts back.

I vaguely remember reading this back in the day, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was getting an anime. So far, so good! I love the art style, the backgrounds are very painterly and the animation is very fluid. Definitely will be watching this on Mondays as soon as they premier.
