Those three didn't have to die, it's like they chose to for no reason! Especially the guy who raised Hyakkimaru, why's he even here? It also bothers me that Hyakkimaru and Dororo weren't even fazed by their death, as if they didn't give a crap, the show is full of these bizarrely directed scenes.

It was hard to sympathize with Tahoumaru and his subordinates, even though the show spent screen time trying to make us care, I just couldn't, if only they gave Tahoumaru a better motive to fight Hyakkimaru other than "my mom always thinks about him, boohoo".

Anyway, regardless of its flaws this is one of the best shows of the year, it's neither better nor worse than I expected, the story is interesting (reminds me of Berserk), the characters are likeable (Hyakkimaru and Dororo only), the ending is satisfying, and the fight scenes are cool, overall I give it 8/10.

Very good show, but I feel the second half was not as good as first.

This final is not memorable for dororo but is the best final that we can see after the lost of quality that this show suffer in their develop. i am not disapointed and that is good. The cast fix their most important mistakes.
7/10

I think a season 2 wouldn’t be right for this anime mostly because the story is finished and there’s nothing more to add. However I think an OVA would be pretty good, maybe showing what Dororo and Hyakkimaru do after this.

I was so proud of Hyakkimaru choosing not to kill Tahomaru who later forfeits the eyes anyway. This show is at its best when it focuses on Hyakkimaru and his family. And Dororo is waifu material when she's all grown up.

Did Niu, Jukai, and Tahomaru really die at the end? :/

This show need an OVA where Dorororo and Hyakkimaru reunited just like in the manga, maybe 10-20 years instead of 50. lol

Fine show, I enjoyed whole episodes. 8/10.

Quite the nice story I must say, liked the main plot and settings and in general the characters were great.

So quite enjoyed watching this anime to be honest!

All in all a great watch!

Ah, here we go again with the bitter endings. It's supposed to be sort of a happy ending but the only fact that they didn't stay together made me really sad.
9/10 for me, great anime, gonna miss this...

Ppl that didn’t like the ending are going too far and overthinking this to a point that they would claim anything as a flaw, they probably didn’t focus up and actually built up a logical reasoning behind it to see what’s missing but man this show was great and I really enjoyed it some points were left ambiguous but it’s not like everything should be explained gotta leave it to the fans to imagine.A 9/10 for me

It’s not like everything should be explained.

From my experience with internet peoples, especially american english-speaking ones, EVERY little thing has to be explained.
Among things required to fulfill this sick need:
- no in media res,
- no or little of the other time management techniques, be it ellipses and other time jumps, non chronological narration, ... ,
- an epilogue illustrating the remaining life of most if not all characters,
- things spoken/written/spelled out directly to the audience rather than being conveyed through behaviour, picture or "between the lines", in other words something that transpires from a conversation/dialogue but is not the subject or whatever. (that would explain why the biggest part of the US films production contains none of that that)
- the various storylines all being fully resolved at the end,
- etc

Also, "overthinking" futile things is one of the essential time killers for internet peoples (and most humans overthink anyway)

Did we see the same epilogue?

@red-tomato I think the sengoku era is the one Dororo is set in. It's relatively late in that period of several centuries but there is more to come too. That was the point of mentioning it: those hard times are yet to conclude.
"Sengoku jidai" is itself cut in several parts by historians, if I remember well.

Ngl, the ending was hot garbage. Taho, jukai and nui died for absolutely no reason. Instead of saving tahomaru they decide to waste time while the building burns down. Tahomaru was one of my favorite characters and actually a good guy (unlike hyakkimaru). He deserves better.

Btw, the way the last demon was killed was pretty lame. One slice was literally all it took.

I am so happy I got to watch this series. Was an emotional roller-coaster.

It's an indescribable feeling but I can't stop watching the final few episodes. The ending was nice since Hyakkimaru got his eyes back without killing Tahomaru. Turns out Tahomaru was a good person. Sad that those people had to die though.

Really nice anime all in all. Solid 9/10. I gave 10/10 because of Dodoro's smile at the end.

They didn't die with "no reason" keep in mind this anime setting is classic japan even before Sengoku era, so suicide for pride or atone still done alot with people

tahomaru didn't want to commit suicide. he already made peace with hyakkimaru and fell unconcious, when he returned his eyes to him, so he couldn't save himself. his mother promissed to stay by his side, but instead of continuing their life together, she decides to die with him.
i know that jukai wanted to die, but he also had regrets for not teaching hyakkimaru about human values. he should have stayed alive, so he could travel with hyakkimaru and help him become more like a human.

maybe? idk, showing the two both grown up, and those final words of the priest made it seem like it still isn't the end (tho looking back, it might just be an epilogue yea) but there was also the mention of the sengoku era and I interpreted it as sengoku era arc so yeah. plus the way they set off on different paths reminds me of magi so there's also that possibility

I wish there could be a season 2 (╯︵╰,)

I'm satisfied with pretty much everything, except for one thing: why the **** did okaa-san, otou-san and onii-san decide to let themselves burn to death instead of trying to get out of there with Hyakymaaru and Dororo?

yeah same with me, i understand that otou-san and oka-san wanted to die from the start but why the hell take your child with you to hell, why not rescue him and let him succeed his father!!

that was absolute nonsense.
why the hell did any of these happen?
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.

Damn. Your thoughts are really just like mine. Kinda relieved that someone thinks of it like this, too. After reading some comments, I guess this anime is kinda overrated. The first half was like "ok, it's kinda good but meh". Then the second half got really interesting and good. But they blew it off with that ending. Just like wtf was that ending? Okay, I get that finally Hyakki finally got his body parts back but were those deaths really necessary? ngl, i'm disappointed.

if they had died tying to get out, it would make more sense
"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

Dororo became more pretty as she grew up!, I'm glad they showed us what they would look like. I just wish her and Hyakkimaru had stayed and lived together.
I do agree with everyone saying that the Mom, Tahomaru, and the guy who raised Hyakkimaru didn't have to die. They could've escaped with them.
The ending was bittersweet. I'm glad they both survived in the end :) 10/10

Great series of one of the toughest circumstances I've seen a main character deal with (especialy a 16-year old) but kinda disappointed in animation decline and the subpar writing of some episodes. Pretty satisfying conclusion, kinda wished we saw the dad suffering more on his wrong decision seeing that Hyakkimaru turning out to be the heir who could have brought prosper to the land and also some more of the aftermath of Dororo and Hyakkimaru.

Based on what I observed, the majority of the episodes with questionable quality were the ones made by Tezuka Pro, and sadly it was the one responsible for most of the second half of the series. The studio at the end credits change per episode and the weakest ones tend to be from that studio.

Comparing those to MAPPA's work in the series is like night and day to the point that I honestly think Furuhashi had more control in MAPPA's output than Tezuka's.

Those with dirty minds will find my Steam pic offensive

I really liked the scene in the hall of hell. Daigo made the wrong choice 16 years ago. Not just the wrong choice, but an evil choice. He could've had everything he wanted had he just raised his son... as his son.

I hate that priest.

I hope this new village that Dororo wants to create doesn't become greedy and selfish like the rest.

Did Hyakki really leave Dororo? Why?! Even if he came back to her years later, why leave in the first place?! You can find your humanity WITH Dororo. (I guess a cop out answer would be that Dororo had her own path she needed to tend to: her father's dream.)

Thought it odd that those 3 died in the castle instead of escaping, but I guess they gave up, offered their lives to repent for their sins.

One last thing. About halfway through this series the two sibling underlings of son #2 mentioned how son 2 had changed. The clear implication was that he changed for the worse. What was even the point of that scene if those two did NOTHING about it and still blindly followed son 2 into the literal depths of hell? It's not like the audience needed them to say that for us to understand son 2 had clearly changed.

Good series. Not great. 7/10

Takes place in the past... but w/ demons. So historical fiction of sorts. Action, supernatural genre. Leaves it up to the viewer to decide if Hyakimaru x Dororo is platonic.

8/10 or something due to some episodes being not so good & I'd say animation decline/fastest frames to draw possible, don't pause on the action.

Shit ending and doesn't make sense at all, he kept his father alive but indirectly killed tahomaru, his mom and his "mom".

I was like what the fuck why don't you save those 3 burned and buried in fire.

The first 12-13 eps of the anime gave me witcher vibes set in feudal Japan. lol

Anyway, awesome anime. However, the ending didn't satisfy me. I wish it had an epilogue, since I wanted to see more of that grown up Dororo. Oh well... 8/10

Absolutely weak ending. Pacing was off. Felt rushed. Really crappy writing at parts too. The first half of this anime started off impeccably. I legit thought this would be something special but the writing, the action and the plot all drastically declined in quality. It’s actually quite bittersweet. The final demon was trash and the rendesvouz with his father was absolutely cringe. They tried to make that scene seem poignant but none of the emotion was warranted. This anime honestly had so much potential. First half was incredible, second half was bang average which got worse by the end. 5.5/10

Recommend me some short Manga!

After the 1969 version, completed with this one.... starting my points
Except first or some episode where was the f***ing dog... lol
I had thoughts previous to this version about how this 50 year old work would be made to and I liked it..... yes it missed many parts of the 1969 version (also the manga maybe), yet added nice storyline of itself. And again different to the manga and the old anime, we had a different ending where nothing is mentioned about hyakkimaru giving his sword to dororo or not, also leaving kagemitsu alive. Nice talks of humanity and Buddha in the whole show. In a way this anime could show the importance of Buddha and all during that time in Japan.
The last four episodes really had amazing fight scenes, and the gore-ness shown was awesome throughout the anime, maybe trying to match the old dororo xD. Also RIP Mio, damn god her character and story with the children. Some of the demon/ghost stories weren’t that interesting in either of this and the old version, so due to that 9/10.
Adachi : “ If there was no one else within a 5-kilometer radius from Shimamura, and she was in a deep sleep and an all-knowing deity just happened to reassure me that she wasn’t going to wake up the next 24 hours, maybe I’d get bored after 23 hours and I might kiss her once to relieve some boredom...
