Dororo to Hyakkimaru-den (どろろと百鬼丸伝, Dororo to Hyakkimaru-den) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Satoshi Shiki. It is a new telling of Osamu Tezuka's Dororo manga series.


Daigo Kagemitsu, who works for a Samurai general in Japan's Warring States period, promises to offer 48 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, hoping the boy will 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. Everytime Hyakkimaru eliminates a demon, he retrieves one of his missing body parts. Hyakkimaru meets a boy thief named Dororo and together they travel the countryside in search of the demons who possess Hyakkimaru's parts. Throughout their travels, they face monsters and ghosts.
