Basically all of Hyakimaru's family dies, but he continues to be happy and gets an happy ending.
And they showed old Dororo <3

The ending was anticlimactic as hell and was rushed a bit. The last fight with the demon was pretty much nonexistent and it would have made more sense if both Hyakkimaru and Tahomaru attacked together and killed the demon, signifying that they come to an understanding and forgave each other. Other than that while I am okay how things were handled with Tahomaru, Jurai's scenes at the end served absolutely no purpose other than to show his forced death scene. It might as well been Nui who gave the statue to Hyakkimaru, which would have made much more sense as we've seen her many times with the headless statue, giving away the statue with a head would signify her acceptance of Hyakkimaru and making her peace with her sins. And Dororo not guessing where Hyakkimaru went didn't make sense, After all the things they saw and know Hall of Hell should have been the first place she should have checked, but all she says she checked the castle and didn't find Hyakkimaru.

Here is how it should have ideally ended;

First of all delete all the scenes Jurai from the episode and replace Jurai with Nui as the person who gives the statue to Hyakkimaru and make Tahomaru kill the demon along with Hyakkimaru, other than that episode should be the same until the scene where Dororo talks to the priest. After their talk Dororo would realize Hyakkimaru is at the Hall of Hell and rushes there. She sees Hyakkimaru is about to kill Daigo after their talk and she screams "Stop!", Hyakkimaru stops and looks at Dororo, he nods his head and leaves the statue next to Jurai with the same words from the ending. Together they go outside and Hyakkimaru tells Dororo that he needs to leave on a self journey. Dororo says she understands and says she is sure one day they will meet again.

After Hyakkimaru leaves, Dororo goes back to the villagers and takes them to where the money is hidden. After a time skip we see Dororo all grown up and working on a rice field with other villagers whom she is living together with. She raises her head and talks to herself how Mio's dream of golden rice fields is finally realized, cut to a short flashback of Mio and kids. Dororo suddenly feels an inkling and tells others she needs to go somewhere and leaves them on the white horse we have seen previously as a baby.

We see Hyakkimaru walking towards Nui's cottage which is surrounded by many people with prosthetic limbs, which were given to them by Nui. Hyakkimaru enters the cottage and sees Jurai on his deathbed surrounded by more people with fake limbs. They exchange a few words and Jurai tells Hyakkimaru how he has always seen him as his son and asks him if he is finally done with revenge and made his peace with himself. Hyakkimaru nods, and casually says his father has died and there is no one left to seek revenge and adds he made his peace with all of it a long time ago. Then we see the crippled kid, now all grown up, whom previously left Jurai because of his past sins, entering the cottage. He looks at Jurai and tells him after giving a long thought and listening to the stories of others that Jurai helped, he decided to forgive him. Jurai smiles and dies peacefully. With a single tear on his face Hyakkimaru leaves, saying "Goodbye, father."
Hyakkimaru keeps walking for some time with his head down, he suddenly hears a horse galloping and looks up and sees Dororo on the white horse. Dororo yells "Hyakkimaru!", implying now she sees him as her equal. Hyakkimaru smiles at Dororo.

The end.

Ok first off I loved the series!! But this is about the finale episode so here goes. Yes I was a little disappointed with how everything ended so cleanly and matter of fact. I would have loved if after Hyakki spared Taho's life and Taho gave back Hyakki's eyes, the demon comes back for one last hurrah. When it comes back it tries to kill Taho for betraying it and wounds him. Hyakki now with a change of "heart" saves his brother right before the demon can get in the fatal blow. They both turn to the demon and together finally slay the last demon, Hyakki for his body and humanity and Taho for the curse of his family and people. Then when Hyakki visits his father, after sparing his live too, his father has a flashback to what could have been their lives if he had taken a different path instead of the path of the demons. In the flashback Hyakki and Taho grow up and lead the land into prosperity. Realizing what his future could have been his father acknowledges that he made the wrong choice and asks for forgiveness even though he knows he doesn't deserve it. Hyakki says to his father "It's not just my forgiveness but the forgiveness of 'OUR' people you should ask for, all you can do now is turn and live as a human!" Then he walks out. Super powerful meaning of redemption, forgiveness, and moving forward from your past. Plus I wish the first thing Hyakki saw was Dororo's face as she came to get him then as he was leaving turned and saw his mother's face and his "other mother's" (lol) face. All in all still a good ending and I hope we get an OVA or something about Dororo and Hyakkimaru's journey to save the land.

What the hell kinda ending was that? I became pissed in ep 23 and it continued all the way to the end. What pissed me off most was how disrespectful it was to Hyakkimaru and Dororo. He just up and leaves and then we get a two second clip of Dororo running to him? These are the two main characters, their emotional arc has been built up for 24 hours, and this is how their story ends? Fuck that

It might've been reasonable for the three of them finally being put to rest by melancholically yet peacefully staying in that burning castle after they've helped Hyakkimaru remain a human as he completed his quest as an ultimate act of repentance considering how they must have felt by finally doing something right in a life full of wrongs but it would've been way more preferable if they all managed to escape and lived out their lives by happily helping out other people instead. Tahomaru, Nui, and Jukai redeemed themselves at the end but they shouldn't have met their ends there because there's still so much they could've done after that.

Daigo might've lived through all this, but seeing how wise his son had turned out and having nearly everything taken away from him filled him with the biggest feeling of regret and humiliation as he helplessly witnessed the direct consequences of his actions. He'd be better off dead and Hyakki knew that fully, ready to take back what's his again if he ever plans on offering his body to the demons again.

Dororo finally had a reason to spend her dad's treasure on and I wonder about how many people she ended up helping with it. It was great to see her grown up and finally reuniting with her best buddy surrounded by golden rice in the end.

Ended way better than it could, considering the original creator. Guess they decided to go hand in hand with the time and did not follow the spirit of... you know whatever. A great ending.

Some interesting moments: Both Hyakkimaru and Tahoomaru have their swords glowing blue - their resolve is just and neither of them is bad, its the demons and the tragedy who made them fight each other.
Daigo trying to taunt Hyakkimaru by saying he will feed him to demons again was an obvious attempt to anger his own son into murdering him, thus reuniting with everyone he has lost. Naturally, blessed be statuettes, Hyakkimaru became human in all meanings of this word and left his father contemplating his regrets alone.

A very good anime. I really liked it. 8/10 for me overall.

The last episode was a bit disappointing tho. They should've shown a bit more of what happens after the timeskip. Atleast we got a glimpse of the grown up Dororo.

And btw WTF?! Why did Tahomaru , his Mom and the other guy die for no reason at all?? To make things worse the Mom says that she will watch over Tahomaru from now on since Hyakkimaru can now finally live his life like a human... And the next thing u know , THEY FRICKING DIE. *FACEPALM*

You do not understand a large piece of art here. By saying she will watch over Tahoomaru she implies she will be there with him in the afterlife, being there together. Wherever it takes them. Tahoomaru, relieved that she is finally there for him, closes his eyes, accepting their fate. As both three played part in this tragedy, they perished but clearly did so in virtuous way. The main culprit to the whole mess, Daigo, is alive since his suffering is now living alone in a world he destroyed himself.


I see. Still I feel it was a bit forced tbh that Tahomaru had to die. He clearly was only a victim to the schemes put forth by Daigo and he could've escaped with Dororo and Hyakkimaru. The mom and the other guy dying is still ok , they failed and regrets their past mistakes and does not want to live I guess. I wanted to see Tahomaru escape , make peace with his brother and become the new Lord of the land.

To be honest I wanted the same, but their Tahoomaru only ever wanted to be seen by his mother, he always felt as if he was robbed of her and everything else just because Hyakkimaru existed. In this sense, Tahoomaru achieved that which he always wanted - his mother acknowledged him and promised to watch over him from now on. It is all he ever wanted and he kinda accepts going up in flames with the castle. We got a way happier ending than it could be, as every character got a dignified ending, including Daigo even, though his ending is most tragic, as it should be.

this moment really touched,, but mmm they let hyakimaru go , its very short meet but their face is the first thing that hyakimaru seen with the real eye,, but as mother is act unfair to tahoumaru is little cruel dont it, i feel pity of tahoumaru who dont feel the love of his mother,,,
but i glad that hyakimaru got his eyes and can see what beautiful world is..
but the pay for that is let his mother, brother and step father even the land is burn and end with fire, the contract is done,,

and his father feel regret about it,,
hyakimaru make his adventure alone without dororo build a country and then time passed What the fuck Dororo very beautyfull, its very very wtf,, they meet again and END..

whoa this series is very unforgetable for me, it has special place in my heart, the ending is very beautifull and sadness at same time but every i watched this anime i fell something warm in my heart making me forget how boring and suck reality is,, this is cure and energy source of my life,,

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.
I’m saying it didn’t have to end that way though Ik it was impossible to survive in that situation.


umm do you guys realized that Jukai, Nui and Tahou are doing Seppuku aka suicide?? I bet they just wanna pay for their ""sin"" and died in honour, not complain though, however, it is what the culture at that period

Everything about this anime urges me to give it a 10/10 but the last two episodes lowered the score to a 9 (I'm being generous)

I haven't watched the original but I could tell it did the title justice. I heard the ending is slightly different from the manga and it makes me curious because the ending didn't settle well with me.
I just found it slightly ridiculous how Dororo followed Hyakki through such a hellish journey just to be left in the end. I understand that Hyakkimaru wants to rid himself of his sins but can't he do that with Dororo around? I mean if Dororo was there to witness him on the edge of turning into a demon, why can't she be there as he regains his humanity?
They should have at least devoted a proper 20 seconds for their reunion.

Would people even be talking about Dororo Hyakkimaru Romance if Dororo had been a boy? This all just seems to be that unspoken rule that if there is a boy and girl in a story then there must be a romance between them. Also I noticed in the manga Dororo only ever crushes on girls. So probably never gonna be any Hyakkimaru x Dororo,

They should’ve shown more of the grown up Dororo and Hyakkimaru relations, kinda disappointing show to be honest. Anyone care to tell me the ending of the original series and the manga here or pm me? I’d really appreciate it.

Great series, but I'm still disappointed about the drop in quality after the episodic portion in the beginning. And honestly, I'm also not quite satisfied with this finale. It was kinda unspectacular and I didn't feel much when it ended, which is sad.
This in in a nutshell.

I needed some clarification on the ending if anyone would be so kind...

[SPOILERS]

- Why did Hyakkimaru's Mom and adopted Father, choose die in the fire?
- Why did Hyakkimaru split ways with Dororo?

Only two things I did not understand, maybe the message was lost in translation.

Other than that it was a good series, but I definitely lost interest after the dip in quality after the first season.
Also this one appears to have picked up the awful ending curse, anime is riddled with.

This ending felt reeeaaally underwhelming tbh.

Am I the only one who felt the themes suddenly shifted at the end? It felt like they were going for one thing the whole time(i.e Hyakkimaru stopping at nothing to get his parts, the questionable morality of his actions, this making him progressively more of a demon and less of a human, ironically causing him to get back less and less body parts), but then it was all either retconned or brushed aside by the end.

Also, the final demon dying that easily after all the buildup it had was super disappointing. Not even getting into how retarded the outcome is for Dororo, her trusting a bunch of random men with her father's treasure without Hyakkimaru to protect her.

Tahomaru tried to kill hyakkimaru more than once. I do not know why hyakkimaru would spare his life in evz d ematar tahomaru.
Nui is a stranger who never took care of hyakkimaru, he would not have feelings or affective ties. More realistically he treat her like a stranger.
The Mappa studio seems to want to follow Disney's logic with the hunchback of notre Dame and not wanting a story with a very dark end.

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.

Woow, so much to say! I absolutely loved this anime and there were so many touching scenes in the last episodes and the visuals to them were stunning!

I liked Tahoumaru, in the last episodes almost as much as Hyakki and Dororo. I would have loved to see him survive. :(
His point of view and feelings are very understandable. Hyakki and he are similar in these aspects. Both felt like they were threw away by their parents and felt lonely for a long time. Now, before he died, Tahoumaru even had lost his two dearest friends, but his mother stayed by his side.

For Hyakki, the new senses always meant to experience the worst and best of the world, like a child born into the world.
He got his nerve system back ... felt pain instantly, was able to hear, heard Mio's beautiful singing voice and later her screaming, got eyes, he saw his mother's face and then a burning castle and his brother dying.

I don't like that the ending is too easy for a complicated issue. You could have done 25 episodes at least to explain more of the end, like how Dororo's money build up the land etc.

Although the very last seconds were awesome. They are so cute and adorable and I love how the hinted that ship lol.
Dororo became a beautiful, young lady and Hyakki's facial expressions got so warm and kind. I mean, he is beautiful too. xD
They look so content and happy now, I want to ship this since Dororo is older. ❤
Like they said in that one episode: We will be happy. ❤

It baffles me how a lot of ppl don't like the ending; I think it ended the way that it should. A lot of y'all wanted it to be overly climatic and over the top, for the ending to be the an exaggerated calm after the storm with seeing how everyone is in the future. And then bam; series over. Did I want that before going into to this episode? Yeah. But, I don't think that's it's intent. Lemme break down my interpretation of the answer to the biggest question I've seen:

"Why did Tahomaru, Nui, and second Mom die at the end?! They should've lived!"
I believe it has to do something with demons. Second Mom(Forgot his name) was dealing with his own inner demon from all the sins he committed while was working with Shiba. He felt like he wanted to move past his sins with that boy he saved, Kaname, but when he heard of SM's doing, he abandoned him. Even while taking care of Hyakki, SM was waiting for death to happen. That's why he didn't escape, his purpose for being alive was accomplished.
Nui regretfully rejected her son and live plentifully knowing that the reason why they're prosperous is because of her son. While regretting what she did to Hyakki, she neglected Taho. She failed as a mother, and instead of living with Hyakki, she chose to finally stay by Taho, yknow... The one who was CLEARLY dying and he was not going to make it, even with medical attention. That was her way to make up for the love Taho yearned for.
And for Taho... I feel like during the beginning of the series, he wanted to meet his older brother, to finally understand why his mother was to distant from him. But when they met, instead of choosing family, he chose to protect his land and wrote off Hyakki as a demon, thus he himself got possessed by the last demon. Even though it was Mutsu who offered herself and seemingly he and Hyogo got tied up with it, he probably saw that as a chance to keep his land rich. During the whole fight, that was the Taho who saw Hyakki as a demon, and a little of the last demon in him. When Hyakki showed Taho mercy, that was the humanity in him showing(which is why I think at that part it only showed the "human" side of his face). That's why he said fuck it and gave Hyakki his eyes back, thus ending the contract he made and having to die for it.

In one shape or form, all three dealt with a type of demon, thus accepting their fate to face their consequences for what they did to Hyakki. Even though Hyakki killed multiple people, he almost turned into a demon himself but he chose the path of the Goddess of Mercy. If he killed Diago, that would've killed the entire purpose of Hyakki's journey: to get his body back and restore humanity within himself. Even though he almost got consumed by the need of having his body back, he chose to deal with his sins on a journey of self-redemption and acceptance of everything, before reuniting with Dororo. He did say he left for himself.

THAT^ ending for me suits the end of this rollercoaster more than the more predictable one. I do hope for an OVA of a timeskip, but I doubt it, and if doesn't happen, I'm pretty satisfied with the party we all just went through. Not every ending has to be clearly laid on the table, people!

Goodbye n thanks for coming to my ted talk. uwu

Erm.. so at the end of the episode, Dororo finally met up with Hyakkimaru right?! Hyakkimaru smiled so happily... he's happy in the end i guess. :')))

Really wanna ship them.. but not sure that Hyakkimaru likes her like a waifu or just a little sister.. lol

i really felt bad for tahomaru, he was my favorite character and got 0 development through the series T_T no redemption either. Killed off in the most pointless way ever.

They couldve atleast kissed :(...
Why do so many people want Dororo Hyakkimaru romance? What's wrong with them having a sibling relationship?


Ikr. I see Dororo and Hyakkimaru as siblings. Dororo even calls him her brother. Just coz Dororo grew up doesn't mean she should end up with Dororo (not gonna complain if they did btw :P ). But if there was any chance for a ship , it was Hyakkimaru x Mio imo. And not gonna lie , Dororo looks a bit like Mio as a grown up :P

I really liked this ending, but I wish there was more closure. While the theme of staying human was executed perfectly, it's just too open for my taste.

Although that theme does seem a little out of place in context. I can't say I understand where the idea even comes from, As far as I know there isn't anything like that in the manga.

I wouldn't say he got 0 development , but the fact he didn't get a redemption arc means he didn't really need it cause the moral ambiguity of his character made him special, and a redemption arc would take away from that.
