With the land torn by feudal war, vanquished samurai warlord Daigo Kagemitsu (Nakai Kiichi) cuts a deal with the demons - victory in exchange for his unborn son. His wishes granted, Daigo triumphs on the battlefield, but his son is born barely human, his body having been torn into forty-eight parts and spread amongst the demons. Left in a basket in a river, the infant is picked up by kind-hearted doctor Jukai (Harada Yoshio) who raises the boy like a son and builds him a new body, Frankenstein style.

Impervious to pain and injury, the boy possesses unnatural powers and an uncommon will to live, but in order to become truly human, he must recover his body parts. And thus begins the quest of Hyakkimaru (Tsumabuki Satoshi), as he roams the land hunting down the forty-eight demons. With each demon slayed, a part of him is restored, or rather regrown. During his journey, he befriends scrappy street thief Dororo (Shibasaki Kou), who joins him in his epic adventure, an adventure that leads them to Daigo.
