Somewhere in the world, a child without eyes, ears, mouth, arms or legs was born. His father, the warlord Daigo Kagemitsu, had concluded compacts with 48 demons in order to obtain tremendous power, and offered each of the demons a part of his unborn child’s body. The child, who had been abandoned, was saved by Doctor Jukai, who used medical technology to create artificial body parts for the boy and called him Hyakkimaru. Eventually, Hyakkimaru learns that, if he kills the demons, he will be able to regain his body parts. He sets out on a journey for just that purpose, and meets up with a thief named Dororo, who lusts after the enchanted sword that had been contrived into Hyakkimaru’s left hand, and they continue on together to conquer the demons.
