This TV show Is About.
Dororo (Japanese: どろろ) is a 2019 anime television series produced by MAPPA and Tezuka Productions based on the manga of the same name by Osamu Tezuka, and is a re-adaptation of the previous 1969 series. The adaptation departs from the source material in several ways, but follows the basic premise of the manga: a young ronin, named Hyakkimaru, along with a young child, Dororo, must face multiple demons in Sengoku-era Japan who have stolen his various body parts in order to get them back.
The remake of Dororo was a production by Manabu Otsuka from MAPPA. The main innovation was the new portrayal of Hyakkimaru, a weaker samurai than the one written by the late Tezuka with director Kazuhiro Furuhashi among other staff member conceiving the alternate of take of the young swordsman becoming a new person following his journey with Dororo in a similar manner to buddy films. The series is also present in English release through Sentai Filmworks and Amazon Prime.
The series was well received by critics from anime who often listed it as one of the best anime from 2019. The characterization of Hyakkimaru and Dororo was often praised as well as how they develop as how the former's family is also explored. However, some writers felt some episodic narratives did not have the same appeal as the earlier ones.
