This was one of the best first episodes I've seen in a while. I just hope this doesn't turn into an episodic series soon. Can't wait for ep 2!

A heavily episodic slice-of-life type thing is literally exactly what I'm hoping for out of this, so long as it fully commits to it.

I don't really get it why everyone is prasing this show. I may watch the second episode, but this first was actually quite boring

There are quite a few 8s, 9s and 10s on your list that I'd consider boring. You honestly shouldn't put too much thought into what other people say about it, tbh, Even though I'm doing just that.


Considering you have a 3.55 mean score, it isn't a suprise you find some of the shows I like boring.

Besides, I'm just curious on the reason of people enjoying something that I can't see the appeal, but I'm actually fine with people enjoying it. For example, I didn't really like Angel Beats, but I do understand why most of people enjoy it and I respect their opinions.

Soo you think 3-gatsu no lion is good, but this is boring? Either dark themed anime is just not for you, or you simply prefer anime that makes you sleep on your couch. To each their own i guess.

it seems pretty interesting so far. MAPPAs animation didn't dissapoint as always, but i did feel a little bit of lack in the background music (except for the action scene) and on the animation, hopefully it won't be like that for the entire anime.

both the opening and ending are well animated, i particulary find the ending to be the best with both the sketchy animaton style and the song by amazarashi was just incredible (i'm quite the fan of BNHA 2nd season op)

You talk like I was some kind of exception. You do realize that almost every person who watched 3-gatsu consider the show a masterpiece right? Specially if we're talking about the second season. Most likely slice of life/drama anime is just not for you. To each their own i guess

Didn't expect that I would like it, but damn it was amazing. I like the darkness of the series. Not a fan of the OP song that much.

I could literally justify every single one of my three and below. I watch a whole lot of trash. You'd be surprised.

So does anyone know the air date of episode 2 ? :) I read through the comments on the thread, couldn't find the info, sorry if somebody already stated it!

Also, I love this shows' premise, high hopes for this one, especially in MAPPA's hands !

'mostly everyone', maybe here on MAL. And yes, its not for me, i personaly find most of them boring. And no, thats not the point, im not saying you are an exeption, just pointing out people with your tastes would probably not enjoy a series such as this, with gorgeous action and a dark themed story. Thought its probably too early too judge since we barely know the protagonists yet.

I think that the opening doesn't fit with the show.

About the episode, I like it.

well actually a lot of people use Amazon for anime.
naah mate that's real unlikely most people watch it from pirated sites.

Well a lot of people have prime anyway so why not.. I have amazon prime so I might as well support the series by watching it on amazon.

i donot like the first episode much , it has been spoiled much events or the main events in anime .
He was created without eyes, ears, skin, hands and there is much parts .
In last minute of Ep 1 , his face skin has appeared after he kill the demon on the river and Daijo found one of demons statue has broken .
so, the anime is journey of someone search for his parts by fighting with demons .
this anime is not good enough to get 8.5 (it will decrease by the time ).
So story is obvious and all episodes are like a fan service of adventure and action. I hope that i am wrong.

Interesting start. The main plot was set and the action sequences were really good as well.

The OP is nice although not the best one from this season, for me at least.

The only little thing I'm not that convinced is Dororo's voice. I know it's common for kids in anime to be voiced by women but he sounds way too feminine for my taste. He's a boy, right?

That aside, this show looks very promising.

Well I don't wanna spoil anything but his voice is fitting.

There’s a reveal at the end of the manga about their gender. I read the liscensed versionーI’m not sure if the fan-translation made it clear or notーbut it was a big plot twist in the three volume Vertical release.

Loved the first episode and excited for the next. I know very little about the original series so if it’s not faithful to the original it won’t bother me much if it’s good. Can’t wait to hear Hiroki Suzuki

Thought it was terribly disappointing, even compared to the live action film. Animation quality was shabby, much prefer the 1969 original. I'll give 2nd episode a go but... I'm not hopeful.

Wow!
Haven't touched the manga or the old anime before, but this series is already very engaging.
Spectacular OP and ED songs from the artists who also did some Tokyo Ghoul's great theme songs. Overall, really promising.
I just realized that all of my favorite characters, beside being stunningly beautiful, are also exceptionally skilled at killing. {×.×}
Are you ready for Makoto Shinkai's next anime movie? Check it out!

I find it a shame many people nowadays don't care about great classics. They're too overhyped over action and otherwise trashy shows.
it think not because this show caught a lot of attention. Normies will watch it anyway for the fight scene. The real classic anime that were underrated is Megalo Box because normies can't understand the deep story telling and the 90's anime art style

Is it strongly plot-related or did Dororo tell this lie to feel safer as a boy than a girl all alone or something?

Like Tezuka’s other notorious series, Princess Knight, the concealment of gender is used as a means of protection.

Well understandable. It's not a big deal to got "spoilered" then / no big difference tho.

I already knew that the animation would be amazing since MAPPA is involved but this was downright fabulous. The OP and ED are wonderful, the animation just great and the story just wow. This season is shaping up really well. Youkoso to Neverland and Dororo have already got me hooked!
