Dororo by Tezuka Osamu

dororoWho has not heard of Dororo, I ask? If you have not, then you have been living underneath a rock. It was written back in the 60s by the Father of Japanese Anime Osamu Tezuka. Dororo is about a little boy thief.

The story starts off with a warlord making a deal with the demon by selling his first born child’s body parts in order for him to win the war. As the story progresses, Dororo ends up meeting Hyakkimaru, a lone warrior through his travels. As you can see Hyakkimaru is not an ordinary warrior, he is the little boy who’s father sold 26 of his body parts to the demon years ago.

Through their travels, they will run into different entities, good and bad. The battles is going to be tough but can they survive the fight?

Will Hyakkimaru finally recover and find what he is looking for and as for Dororo, will he finally find his happiness or accept his fate?
