Quotes:
Dororo:[Having listened to two peasants tell the story of how and why they came to abandon their child at a temple, which has since burned down, killing many children including their own] So that's how it was... Enough of your crap! I was born in a battleground. My whole village was burned. But still my dad and my mom fought back! Until they collapsed, spent... they never gave up. YOU know the truth about the horrible fate that awaits an abandoned child! A starving kid, collapsed by the road, clinging to his last handful of rice his parents gave him. "If I eat this, I'll forget what my parents look like." Fool! If he doesn't eat it, he'll die, but he just clings to it.

will keep you on seat, 30 September 2007
Author: abdullah kesgin from istanbul

although its effects are not satisfying, the scenario is well written and the actors (and actresses)are all (even the ones at the background)playing with everything they have in the movie. So this make the film going without loosing anything of its interesting tale and making the audience kept on their seats.

When we thing there are lots of movies with expensive effects but really have nothing to watch and extremely boring, maashallah dororo having cheaper effects has done no damage in the entertainment.

I congratulate all players especially the leading actor and the actress.

Waiting for next episodes.
