Do You Dororo?

I saw an awesome movie with my Asian cinema group Sunday, Dororo. By "awesome" I don't necessarily mean that the film was of the highest quality but that I was entertained.

Not necessarily in the way intended by the film makers. Though it was successful enough that there are two sequels in the works.

A good portion of the movie is spent demon hunting as Hyakkimaru retrieves his body parts. This is what I found especially interesting as there were live action (in the rubber suit and/or CGI sense) versions of monsters similar to what we have seen in Inuyasha, a moth, a giant snakey thing, dogs (but not cuddlesome like Sess!)  and a very hairy demon.  Since Hyakkimaru's body is largely prosthetic he's very hard to damage and, like Inuyasha, he has a sword with powers against demons while Dororo, who is "normal" is right there beside him.

Have you had many trick or treaters and are there any bishes in Dororo?

Hyakkimaru's evil bastard of a father and Hyakkimaru's younger brother are pretty hot.

Hyakkimaru has goofy hair that seems to be trying to look like the original manga but he's OK.

We also saw a Vietnamese film called The Rebel and the lead in that was awfully fine. I liked the villain better though.
