Blue Eye Samurai Review
Listen, it was hard to stop gushing about all the reasons we enjoyed Blue Eye Samurai. This show feels like something adult fans of anime have been waiting for. From its beautiful animation that contrasts the beauty with the brutal to the intriguing story and interesting characters. It really does check off all the boxes of what adult animation should be.
Most importantly, we all agree that we need at least one or two more seasons. There is still more to this story, and we need to know what happens next. Mizu’s body count still has space to rise. So grab all your anime-loving friends and watch it when it drops on Netflix November 3.
About Blue Eye Samurai
During the Edo-period in Japan, anyone with mixed blood is seen as impure. Mixed-race, blue-eyed Mizu (Maya Erskine) has been treated poorly all her life. But that has only made her stronger. After spending years training to become the greatest samurai in all of Japan, Mizu sets out in disguise to seek revenge on the white man responsible for killing her mother. It won’t be easy, as Abijah Fowler (Kenneth Branagh) is as ruthless as he is cunning.
