Now I'm watching Akihiko Shiota's Dororo. It's a fantasy horror film about a hero whose father made a deal with 48 demons in return for power over the kingdom. The hero's 48 body parts were given to the 48 demons before he was born. A sorcerer saved him and made him magic body parts, and raised him to become a warrior.
The hero is accompanied on his quest to kill each of the 48 demons and win back the 48 parts of his body, by a young warrior named Dororo, who is a girl in disguise. So far it is creepy and wierd but also visually amazing. Great special effects - like monkey magic only gorier.
