Dororo is a bizarre story involving demons.
Fans of “Demon Slayer” would most definitely enjoy “Dororo,” a dark fantasy shonen anime. “Dororo,” like “Demon Slayer,” is set in a bygone age of Japan, but the time period is different; the show is set during the Sengoku Period.
A father makes a bargain with demons in “Dororo,” exchanging parts of his newborn son’s body for power. The demons take the baby’s arms, facial features, and skin, and the boy (now known as Hyakkimaru) is raised by a doctor who provides him with prosthetics. With the help of a young sidekick called Dororo, Hyakkimaru now hunts down the demons that took his body parts as an adult.
Despite the fact that “Dororo” is far darker than “Demon Slayer,” both shows are set in the past, in worlds where demons and humans coexist.
Every show’s protagonists embark on demon-hunting adventures and are pitted against a slew of formidable foes, resulting in thrilling fights. Both animes have emotional scenes that make you cheer for the protagonists in their missions, in addition to action and horror themes. On Amazon Prime, you can watch “Dororo.”
