Description
Daigo Kagemitsu, who works for a Samurai general in Japanís Warring States period, promises to offer body parts of his unborn baby to 48 demons in exchange for complete domination of the country. When the baby boy is born, Daigo has him thrown into a river, expecting the boy to die. A kind sage, however, finds him and adopts him. The sage fits out his poor son with prosthetics.

Time goes by and the baby grows into a boy who calls himself Hyakkimaru. Every time Hyakkimaru eliminates a demon, he retrieves one of his body parts. Hyakkimaru rescues a boy thief named Dororo from a band of men whom the young boy tried to rob. Together they travel the countryside in search of the demons who possess Hyakkimaru's parts. Throughout their travels, they face a host of monsters and ghosts.

this is what most shounen try to be, but fail to be. gripping plotline, interesting characters, feel good messages without being corny, comedic yet full of suspense and drama...wow, this manga is freaking awesome.

yes, the ending is a bit unsatisfactory, but apparently the 'author die before completion'. still, nice enough to tidy it up. the art is simple yet it is easy in the eye. it can be childish, and it is, but thats one of the plus point.

very recommended.
