      Previous Emma Stefansky The Atlantic It deserves to be counted among the best shows of the year. The series takes the trappings of a heroic action-adventure and turns them on their head, crafting a bloody, emotional drama that is riveting from the very first frame. Dec 21, 2023 Full Review Dan Fienberg Hollywood Reporter One of the year’s most surprising and viscerally exciting TV experiences. Dec 14, 2023 Full Review David Opie Empire Magazine Blue Eye Samurai is a gorgeous, addictive thrill-ride that never loses sight of Mizu's point-of-view, even when the road ahead is obscured with blood. 5/5 Nov 23, 2023 Full Review Jeremy Jahns Blue Eye Samurai [is an] incredible binge -- the most enjoyable binge I've actually had in quite a while. Feb 2, 2024 Full Review Robert W. Butler Butler's Cinema Scene Of all there is to admire in this series, I believe it’s the action sequences that most grabbed me.

      Previous Mike V Awesome story, great choreography, superb writing, yes a lot of sex, but not gratuitous. Can't wait for season 2. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Jacob A A beautiful display of animation and story telling. The first episode grabbed me and I was hooked until the end, I wait with anticipation for the next season. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Akash D It's a piece of art Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review valentin d Une petite pépite. Je précise que je l'ai regardé en VF car la VO est trèèèèès particulière. Pas un 5* car des Japonais qui ne parle pas japonais pour ce genre de film est extrêmement dommage (surtout que leur talent de doublage éclate ceux des anglophone). Hormis ça c'est plutôt propre rien à redire. Que ce soit niveau animation, chorégraphie, déroulement de l'histoire, personnage... Une bonne série d'animation sur un sujet assez vue mais qui arrive quand même à surprendre. Chapeau Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Amara T Best anime of the year. Period. Up there with the best animated shows of all time like Arcane, Cyberpunk Edgerunners and Avatar. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/24 Full Review Zeljko P Absolutely fantastic. From start to finish. Not a single wasted minute. Looking forward to season 2 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
