The hero, Hyakkimaru is a wandering "demon hunter" whose extra body parts -- 48 to be exact -- were grafted onto his head and trunk by a herb doctor who discovered him as an infant, in a process that echoes "Frankenstein" and "The Island of Dr. Moreau." His warlord father gave the originals to 48 demons in exchange for power. When Hyakkimaru kills a demon, he wins back a body part. He is spotted in one of these battles, with a giant spider demon, by Dororo, a scrappy female thief who is fascinated by not only Hyakkimaru's prowess with the sword blade poking out of his arm but the new leg he grows after dicing his opponent. Is he a man -- or a monster? After hearing his story from an old minstrel, she decides to join him on his travels and find out for herself.

The moral being worn is not a major problem in itself but it is when it takes away from the rest of the movie. From the early dance onwards the movie doesn't do very much and, as it is short, uses up most of the space on this simple point. This means it isn't as funny or as fresh as it needed to be and only the side characters amused me. It still looks great of course and is a darn sight more kiddie friendly than the actual feature movie was. The sheep is well drawn to be not cute and thus take away from the whole point of the movie, the jackalope did nothing for me but the support animals were cute and funny and the owl drew a laugh from me. Overall this is an OK short movie but unless the rest of the field are average.
