Alternative title:
どろろ (Japanese)
Themes: historical
Plot Summary: After being defeated in battle, a desperate feudal lord makes a pact with demons, offering each a piece of his yet unborn son's body to obtain more power. Born barely human, the child is abandoned, but has gained near immortality from demonic influence. Years later, that son, Hyakkimaru, sets out on a journey to exterminate the demons that robbed him of his humanity. Together with the thief, Dororo, he travels the country, reclaiming part of what he lost with each demon he fells. However, that journey will force both Hyakkimaru and Dororo to come face to face with the brutal reality of the past.
