At the end of the anime, Dororo grows up and becomes a beautiful girl, and she is running to Hyakkimaru, right?

Also, he is standing in a field. Which means, does Dororo and Hyakkimaru meet again?

  • If I'm not mistaken, Hyakkimaru looked a bit older there, too. This could be an argument for why this scene doesn't simply reflect Dororo's wish to be together with him again, but a fact that's actually going to happen since she wouldn't have known his older appearance if she wouldn't have met him. – Eti2d1 Jul 12 '19 at 10:31

Well, I'm no expert but from what I see I think they do, however not in that instance. Dororo said she'd bring back the money in a few days, the three men didn't seem to be on the bridge but watching Dororo run acrossed it. Hyakkimaru was found at the end, with a smile. I suppose there will be journey and they meet again at a new age. The bridge could represent the journey, and the field could represent the gold Dororo is going to get. Hyakkimaru meeting her there. Don't forget the mother of Hyakkimaru stated child who would be by his side forever. So, if not meeting then I'm sure they'll meet in the future. Now if it is to be them meeting then its foreshadowing that Dororo becomes a woman of course, and all the time she does she's right there with Hyakkimaru.


I think they might meet somewhere in the future. As for the bridge I think it means the journey ahead of them, while discovering their own paths - with Dororo helping the men out using the money and Hyakkimaru finding a path that doesn't involve murder since he has killed so many to regain his body. The field probably doesn't represent the gold Dororo used, but rather Hyakkimaru's path - in which he helped people with famine etc. by using the rice seeds Mio took from the samurai and wanted to plant them with the orphans before they were killed, saying that when it was growing it looked like a sea of gold. Meaning that he has found a way to help without killing and also made Mio's dream come true


I’m sure they did not part. As Biwamaru said, they still have so much greater than what they have experienced TOGETHER ahead of them. Also the gold field probably did not only represent Dororo’s money but if you remember Mio, the woman who’s voice comforted Hyakkimaru, along with the children she fed, she and they wished for their own field so MAYBE Hyakkimaru and Dororo fulfilled that wish in their absence.

All things aside, I love this anime, def in my top 3.
