Netflix (NFLX) Resurrects Onimusha with Epic Anime Revival

Global streaming giant Netflix (NFLX) is bringing back the beloved video game franchise Onimusha with an exciting new anime series. Set to premiere on November 2, the show aims to revolutionize the genre with its unique blend of traditional and modern animation techniques.

The series, supervised by Takashi Miike and directed by Shinya Sugai, follows the story of Miyamoto Musashi during the peaceful Edo Period. Musashi embarks on a secret mission, armed with the powerful “Oni Gauntlet,” to confront hidden demons. The emotional depth of the story is enhanced by the theme song THE LONELIEST by Maneskin.

One of the standout features of the anime is its fusion of cutting-edge 3D CGI character animations and beautifully hand-drawn backgrounds. This combination offers a fresh and immersive experience that will appeal to both longtime fans of the game and newcomers.
