Yet another series disappoints. Started with a strong/great first half and fails the landing. The ending wasn't impactful and was just okay. The second half was like a 5/10 compared to the 8/10 first half. Overall it's a 6/10. Just like Megalo box it started with so much hype/potential and now it's all wasted.

That was a rushed ending, I wanted to see that emotional reunion and how Dororo was going to change the era. Most of all I wanted to see the older version of her more thoroughly. I didn't like that the father got to live at the end. I definitely sensed Hyakkimaru's mother was going to die with those death flags around her, but why didn't she save Tahomaru though? The ending was predictable and nothing special, They could've made it a bit of emotional and epic.

But overall I enjoyed it a lot, it made my Mondays worthwhile. The animation visuals weren't bad and the characters will be in my memory along with the plot. I just love Historical Japanese anime, I guess there won't be a season 2 for this one.

9/10

The last episode felt a bit rushed and it was underwhelming. Overall, series is a good 8/10.

Ohh well it seems that Dororo and hyakkimaru have taken their path separately after that one. Well its a bit sad one for me though. Anyways love that final clip where the Grown up version of dororo rushingly went to hyakkimaru...

8/10 for me overall...

While not perfect, this was an ending that I can accept.

There certainly were things that happened too quickly or without explanation (Tahomaru's missing piece for example), but for some reason I don't see those as issues for the ending, instead they are issues with the episodes leading up to this finale. Dororo took a downturn in quality for a few episodes in the latter half of its run, and the partial episodic nature of others probably took away from the running plot.

Also, I don't think the deaths of both Jukai and Nui were wholly necessary. I understand their deaths and the purpose for them, but I don't think both were necessary. If either of them should have died, it should have been Jukai, as his story was over, whereas Nui could have aided in the rebuilding, as she was finally taking action by herself these past few episodes, and it might have even fit the direction her character was taking. Otherwise, if they both had to die, then it should have been Nui trying to save or be with Tahomaru, and Jukai saving Hyakkimaru, instead of Jukai dying alongside Tahomaru and Nui as the odd man out.

Good finale, it kinda ended on a fairly mellow note.

It's sad that Hyakkimaru's Mom, Jukai and Tahomaru all had to die while Daigo ended up living but I suppose there is some meaning in having him live with all the sins he's commited.

I like that Hyakkimaru shows a very human disposition after regaining everything, it's a strong emphasis on his character of never wanting to turn into a vengeful demon who despises everything and everyone responsible for turning his life into literal hell.

Overall, a very strong series, while the first half was notably very superior to the second, I still really liked the show. The entire story about Hyakkimaru regaining his limbs by defeating the demons was a very compelling plot line. The strange thing is, I'm not really able to put into words what exactly was missing from the second half of the show that was so good about the first half. I mean it's essentially the same thing about him fighting demons to regain his body but somehow it just wasn't as good, did we just tire of it? I can't really tell. Despite that, I still really liked this show, great character cast. Tahomaru deserved better in my opinion. I kinda wish we learnt more about Biwamaru but I guess he's supposed to be a mystery character. Would've been nice to have some more time skip stuff. Dororo grew upto be a beauty.

9/10

oh man, what a show. truly one of my favorite series in the past year.

what a great finale - it felt a little rushed ngl and it could have used another episode to really tie it all together, but overall it was a pretty good ending for an incredible story.

hyakki is soooooo freakin pretty, and so is dororo. i kinda expected hyakki's eyes to be darker but whatever. he's still cute. nui holding her sons in her arms for the last time broke my damn heart, and jukai coming in with her to protect hyakki from the falling beams warmed my heart. taho's final moments were really emotional and we finally get to see some of the kindhearted tahomaru we knew before he turned against his brother.

i didn't read the manga, but is this finale canon? i think that either way i really like it, but i wanna know if this is the same ending as osamu's.

overall, 9/10. it's been a journey.

it being anticlimactic was expected but holy fuk.
taho and hyakki fight for understandable reasons.
hyakki stops wanting to kill taho because he sees the hole in his heart. okay.
after sparing him the last demon starts acting up so the tears his extra eyes out and rejects the demon. is that even possible? whatever.
hyakki kills the last demon by stabbing the red orb in an instant. that's it? really?
puppet guy and mom show up they save hyakki, then die along with taho for no reason when they could have dragged him out. I get puppet guy's urge to die, it was well explained in his backstory BUT "guess I saved hyakkimaru and gave him some blessing I can die at last" that's bullshit.
and the mom is like: "all these years I never paid attention to you, instead of saving you and dedicating myself to be by your side from now on I'll just watch you die and burn with your corpse."
GOOD FUCKING GOING.

Taho was dying dude, he was finished, his mother stayed with him because of the sins she committed in rejecting her son when he returned, she wanted to stay with Taho because she wanted to be with him at the end because she was never with him throughout his life.
Jukai is already damned because of the atrocities he committed during his earlier life, it clearly shows when we meet him again halfway through the series, he's always haunted.

It really needed some extra time for closure. This anime had a great potential but this episode was a big clusterfuck and felt kind of rushed. Sure it wrapped up everything in the end somehow, but 1 extra episode fleshing out the battle with last demon etc. would make it just so much better. Also Nui is just plain retarded, what the fuck was that supposed to be, what's the point of Hyakkimaru sparing his brother if she just decided to burn along with him in the for whatever reason lol.

The point of Hyakki sparing his brother is that he doesn't get consumed and turn into a demon, his humanity wins out in the end. Regarding Nui's actions, read what I said above.
Some of you guys really aren't paying attention to what's going on...


That last part you said....that pretty much applies to anybody who gave this a 5 or lower.

I’m surprised everyone is complaining??? While I do agree the ending felt rushed and there was faults throughout the series as a whole I did love the ending. I enjoy the fact that it was a happy ending for a dark fantasy drama. I’m with everyone on an OVA !! I’m overall very pleased with the series and I hope it does spark more anime company’s take adapt/readapt older series. It really was refreshing to watch this show especially compared to shounen, fantasy, and just dark series in general today. I’ll miss this series a lot. My Monday’s will be empty again :(((

I liked this ending more than the original one and it made for sense for the characters. Would have liked to see Dororo and Hyakkimaru stay together this time but at least they reunited on that bridge at the end. Still it made more sense for the versions of these characters to stay together unlike the other iterations. Oh well.

Overall I liked the ending, the only think I didn't like about it was the quick change of attitude of Hyakkimaru and Tahomaru during the final battle, pretty anticlimactic, but I'll let it pass. It was a nice ending

Very good anime in general, had its ups and downs but almost always remained well.
The "end" was quite well, the battle against Tahomaru was intense and well animated and the protagonism of the mother was quite more than in other chapters ...

Now, I didn't like something, I felt that to be the last chapter something was missing...Maybe I needed more emotion? idk.

Hyakki's reaction when he recovers his eyes was very dull, I expected him to react differently.
When he leaves the castle with his mother, brother and the man who gave him the prosthesis burning and dying inside, he did not react with anger or at least with surprise.

I don't know, I feel there were several things that could have been done better, yet it is a very good anime and I will miss it.

PS: Hyakkimaru's mother is beautiful <3

This show had some ups and downs. The premise was really interesting and I liked how dark it got at times.

Though some of the later episodes (the marriage one in particular) were poor. The ending just had too many things happen so fast that it kinda made it difficult to feel the significance (or anything at all) for that matter.

It kinda just left me saying.. "... that's it?"

The ending actually makes perfect sense. The only thing I'm personally disappointed in was the drop in animation quality as the show went on. In many ways the show would have been much better if it stayed short, or if it went full in with the episodic nature of the mysteries and stories... Mushishi style.

That being said, it was certainly rushed. Tohomaru dying in the end, and their mother staying with him was touching. I didn't expect them to just sit down and die in the fire per se, but it does make sense. His father was pretty much already a ghost and only followed him to see if he could gift humanity to Hyakkimaru, Tohomaru was already going to die, and the mother wanted to make up for her absence in his life.

Also, I didn't expect the scene with Diago in the end, and it was a good addition.

God damn what a ride, loved this show. Kinda BS with the whole tease about an older Dororo meeting up with him after some unseen time skip, I'd have prefered if they didn't part ways and have some supposed reunion much later.

Few anime can have endings as great as this one. It tied up every loose end about the story and gave a satisfactory conclusion. Dororo has been a fucking incredible journey and was amazing to watch. Phenomenal.

In the final scene, Did Hyakkimaru and Dororo meet again??

Yep, there was golden rice (like in Mio's vision) under the bridge Dororo and Hyakkimaru were on. In the previous scene Hyakkimaru is shown taking Mio's rice seeds out of his pocket. Meaning:he had planted them and came back after they grew.

Ok so I don't get it...The season one finale felt like an actual finale to the show(and I thought it was as I didn't even know at the time that it was gonna be 24 episodes), while this episode felt like a teaser for another season, despite being the real finale.
This second season overall has been really underwhelming compared to season one. A lot of people will point to things like the decline in animation quality in some episodes, or to the rushed finale, but to me the greatest sin is how Dororo was handled this season. She does NOTHING the entire season. First season, she served as a guide to Hyakkimaru, a grounding for his humanity, and would often help out fighting the monster of the week (which is another thing I miss about season one's writing as the shorter fairy tale-ish vignettes were much more entertaining than the overall plot). Second season, she's basically Princess Peach, getting kidnapped every other episode and Hyakkimaru having to save her. The map on her back makes her basically a maguffin and it seems like no one actually cares about who she is as a person. Dororo is the TITULAR CHARACTER yet she gets 0 character development. And in the finale, titled DORORO AND HYAKKIMARU, Dororo sees Hyakkimaru only once, and she's treated as a meaningless side character. The shelving of Dororo really brings the second season down, as well as the sloppy writing.

Which speaking of the sloppy writing, let's summarize the plot of season 2.
Ep 1: The main pair fight the statue guy. Very similar to episode 1. Hyakkimaru shows that he's not always serious at the end, and Dororo's back map is revealed.
Ep 2-3: The moth episodes. The main 2 separate at the end of the episode because...uh...yeah no real reason besides the writers wanted them to, they were lost in thought I guess??
Ep 4-6: Dororo is kidnapped. She helps them fight a shark so they don't die, then she goes back to being a damsel in distress. Hyakkimaru has a boring episode with his adoptive father. Hyakkimaru almost gets killed by Tahomaru and the main 2 find the treasure.
Ep 7: Weird attempt at a comedic episode. Feels out of place in a show like this.
Ep 8: Dororo helplessly watches Hyakkimaru fight a demon and then they both realize he needs to kill the demons at the source.
Ep 9-12: the final battle. Dororo plays absolutely no role in these last 4 episodes and Hyakkimaru does everything on his own, with a little help from his new best friend Demon Horse.

so yeah, way too much focus on the plot, random contrivances happening here and there for no reason other than the writers wanted it to be that way, reducing Tahomaru to a recurring villain, and completely sidelining Dororo.

but hey, at least the second OP was better.

Season 1: 10/10
Season 2: 4/10
Overall: 7/10
If I were to recommend this series to anyone, I'd just say watch the first season, and only watch the second if you're still curious.

The storytelling is overall a bit messy and the execution is sometimes a bit off. Though, the concept itself is pretty interesting. Also too many fillers, I think it was better to just focus on Daigo's arc and thicken the plot than those damn fillers. The production value is also pretty good. Nice screenplays and great voice acting. The soundtrack is decent. Sometimes the animation is a bit odd, but ok. I'd give it a solid 7/10.

is the sidelining of dororo a nitpick? or the separation at the end of episode 3?
I wouldn't be as hard as I am on season 2's flaws if I didn't love season 1 so much.

yeah it is , cause it made sense for it to go down that way that's why it isn't a problem.

I don't why people are saying the ending felt rushed , it was neither disjointed nor confusing and it covered all relevant plot points, just because a series doesn't give you what you want doesn't mean it's rushed.

I don't think that's needed all we needed to know that their journey's were over and that they part ways , and their time apart is insignificant to their time together that's why they reunited.

I would like to know what Hyakkimaru was doing all that time and if Dororo managed to build the country again using her father's treasure. many people would like to know, I believe. the fact that they reunited is great but I felt like seeing more, that's all :)

sure I can understand you would like to know but I don't believe it to be relevant as it was a story about him and dororo, their time apart would add nothing to the story.

I was expecting Tahomaru to die but why did Daigo live on? I hope that motherfucker suffers. His wife and son are both gone. Also I wasn't expecting Jukai to die either :( I guess it's an act of parents sacrificing themselves for their children. Aside from Daigo, of course, that motherfucker needs to be ravished by tentacles.

9/10 for me. It had its flaws but the overall story was still wonderful. They were able to take a 50-60 year old series and bring it back to life. Definitely one of my favorites for this year.

Glad to see Dororo grown up a bit towards the end. I saw some fanart of her but I guess the one in this series was good too.

Grown up Dororo is so pretty!


Feels like the last episode was a bit rushed and still disappointed that Tahomaru and his mother died after they finally reconciled with Hyakkimaru.

Well, here it is, the conclusion. It still left a lot of questions from me like why was daigo bleeding. And is Tahomaru dead? Welp, hell yeah Dororo became a waifu material now. Biwamaru is still mysterious for me

RIP pretty much everyone...

Although it was only for a bit, we got to see an older Dororo~~ She became such a pretty lady... (Slightly happy that my wish came true)
They sure teased us with those few seconds that it’s kinda sad that we’ll most likely never see the rest of her adventures.

I will really miss this anime...

Edit: I just found out that the fulll version of the 2nd ED is out on Youtube on Eve’s official channel~ so good~~
i just want to know what the hell happened to hyakkimaru and dororo.I wanted to see dororo ruling a country and her methods to rule, will se became arrogant or hyakkimaru help her to rule or the country will be the first democratic country. Not to ignore the fact that dororo called hyakkimaru bro, their relation will be a special one or just to put it simply i want to see the future of dororo and hyakkimaru .. i just want to watch more adventures of dororo and hyakkimaru..

I don't get why some people are saying the ending was underwhelming. Maybe they were expecting more action and something more flashy and adrenaline-packed.
Sure, some endings are fun like that.

But Dororo ended with a spiritual-like peace, you know?
It wasn't for some great big plot, it was just to finally feel at peace with what they've done in the past and to just end all the suffering and stress they've been through. It's kind of like taking a great big nap after a tiring day.
That feeling of falling onto your bed and you're out within seconds.

And to quote mayhem1994's comment:
"Some of you guys really aren't paying attention to what's going on..."


Some of them might be expecting a flashy ending like fight scene of the big boss and such. Some might be expecting some epilogue like Dororo and Hyakkimaru together..

Tbh, this was the perfect ending I could asked for. Even in ep 23. I already or the anime itself already showing that the final episode is about closure. What each characters choice will be. It is not entirely about killing the big boss demon. It is more of what Hyakkimaru will choose in the end. The anime pretty much wrap up what the whole show wanted to convey. Hyakkimaru choose to be a human. Dororo decided to help the villagers using the money she have. Jukai, Nui and Tahoumaru choose die to finally repent all the guilt they must have felt finally able to fullfill all their roles. Daigo surviving being the most harsh punishment as he have to live all the sin he committed alone.
The whole ending is about closure to everyone. It is a quite closure. So I really don't understand how it was also underwhelm to others.... or they really expecting a flashy ending then...

People defending this ep are like people defending GOT season 8. Yes things happened that made sense that they happened but it didn't make sense how they got there. For example, Nui and Taho dying. Yes it made sense that Nui wanted to be there with Taho but made no sense why she couldn't drag him from the fire and stay with him until he died then lived on.

Essentially, the show had good points but but bad development/execution. Still a solid 8/10


I am not sure if you noticed but the anime clearly showed that the only exit was destroyed and closed by those woods on fire... There are no way exit out. And they are on top of the freaking building so they can't jump.
