While in-utero, 48 demons stole 48 body parts from Hyakkimaru (1 each), as such, he was born lacking limbs and several organs, but by the kindness of a great doctor, Jukai, he was reconstructed with several prosthetics (some weaponized) to make up for his lost body parts.
As Hyakkimaru was born without sensory organs, he developed an uncanny sixth sense as an infant, granting him telepathic powers, extrasensory perception & spatial awareness, and the ability to perceive, sense, and interact with demons and spirits. This gift makes him a magnet for ghouls, spirits of the dead inhabiting physical matter of any sort.
To reclaim his lost body parts, Hyakkimaru trained extensively to hunt down the demons who robbed him of his humanity, becoming an excellent warrior in the process.

Once he regained his right arm, the blade connected to his elbow was he re-housed in its original handle and sheath, carried on his waist. - Prosthetic Legs (regained right leg): Left leg conceals a large caustic water spray, a dangerously acidic liquid. - Nose (later regained): Detachable, is a bomb. - Green plum poison. - Caustic water canister. - Antidote.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
