The main protagonist, despite the fact that the manga title points to the orphan Dororo, seems to be Hyakkimaru. In order to conquer the country, Hyakkimaru’s father made a pact with 48 demons that he’d offer each demon a part of the yet-to-be born Hyakkimaru’s body in exchange for the fulfillment of his wish(doesn’t sound so clichéd, eh?). As a result, Hyakkimaru is born with 48 body parts and internal organs missing. His mother, when she realizes what has befallen his son, puts him in a basket and releases it in a river. The formless infant is then found by Dr. Honda who believes he’ll survive and raises him. As he grows, Hyakkimaru learns to move about by crawling on his stomach and even learns to speak from his stomach. But soon he is haunted by weird demons looking for his soul and Dr. Honda decides he must leave.
Dr. gives him prosthetic limbs inside each of which he attaches a separate weapon such as swords in his arms and a skin-burning spay in one of his limbs.
He then sets off to slay the 48 demons and finds company of the young thief Dororo(who is later revealed to be a girl even though she herself does not believes it). Together they help villagers ger rid of demons and gain Hyakkimaru’s organs one by one.
The overall manga is a very good one considering the time it was made in; however a major drawback in it is the way it ends. We never clearly get to know what exactly happened except a line that mentions “Where Hyakkimaru went from there, no one knows. It is said that fifty years hence the flames of war burned down the hall of hell that housed the 48 sculptures.” And Dororo only calls out to him from a distance..But Hyakkimaru never turns back. I think that I would have liked to see a few more pages describing what happens in the near future but the manga is good as it is maybe.
A good read for Tezuka fans. The art is vintage-kind so ignore this one aspect :D

Till Dawn describes a once in a lifetime meeting between a caged bird and a thief who is in the brink of his death, and the romance that is sparked in the short time before he sets her free..
Honestly, i don't understand how can she(mangaka) create a better story in 8 pages than those long running shoujo manga do. Its bewildering!

Its a nice manga with great artwork, a bit shaky-waky story which is compensated by the comical scenes; has the typical character line, and does not bore you at all! :D
A recommended read to anyone who is bored of Twilight, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, blah blah blah!
Thanks to Mr. I-have-a-zombie-fetish-Chihiro Furuya..she's now freeloading at his place in order to experience a normal girl's life, what she had always desired..
Honestly, i have no idea why i am reading this manga..maybe because of Furuya's chibi-neko form which is reaaaally moe~! :3
Its a typical romance manga, two girls "sincerely" fighting over one guy, the diffrence being, Rea's body is rotting away..and Furuya needs to find a way to preserve it or he'll lose his zombie love!
Lets see what happens when Chihiro and Rea do "ahem ahem" things together (tee-hee read more

A one-shot that touched my heart! Reaaaaally honest!
Wonderfully and fabulously thought up story, not your everyday shoujo one-shot with a "happy ending"; its short so do give it your time!
A rare treat for Romancers!
In this day and age where we dont even remember the correct format of a letter, the manga really brings us to our senses!
Loved the strong characterization!

Put down nicely, we meet a female character who is like a doll, but a strong one. Unlike the female protagonist that usually pisses you off by crying, she can do some outrageous things indeed, admitting that having long hair is NOT a necessity :))
(This part is what i really liked!)
All in all, a decent one-shot by Morishita Miu.
P.S: I still don't understand what the "candy" in the title stands for. If you can make out, do tell me! :D

It starts out of the ordinary, and disappears the same way, leaving a big impact in your head via the last few pages! Something that leaves you asking for more..
The characters are very refined and dialogues to the point. No need to keep re-pondering over whats going on, everything comes out as clear as the Red Thread :)
P.S: I could see the thread too ;)
