If you’ve watched Dororo and seen her. Tell us if you cried.

What We Think Of Dororo

**Warning spoilers ahead**

From the first episode of Dororo we couldn’t help but like Dororo’s character. An orphaned child that is running from bandits that he decided to steal from, a thief to thieves.

At the start of the anime, Hyakkimaru doesn’t have any limbs and we can assume that he kills his first demon in episode 1. Watching his skin grow back after killing the demon made us at The Anime Index feel discomfort and curiosity.

As we continued to watch Dororo, watching Hyakkimaru get his limbs back felt somewhat heartwarming. Once he regained his hearing and heard Mio’s singing, the anime took a shot at our emotions. The few episodes we got between Hyakkimaru and Mio was a great change from the bloody gore the series starts off with.

After learning that Dororo is a girl, we were shocked. Some people noticed right away but we were slow on noticing. Either way, we can’t wait to see where this leads both Dororo and Hyakkimaru.
