Are you a fan of Greek Mythologies and Anime? Blood Of Zeus is a combination of these two and is now available on Netflix.
Blood Of Zeus, formerly known as Gods & Heroes, is an American adult animated television series created by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides for Netflix. The show takes advantage of the malleability of myths by borrowing from the ancient stories while spinning its own tale. Within 8 episodes, this first season weaves a tapestry of remixed familiarity for those who have consumed — or devoured — Greek mythology.
Heron, The Composited Demigod
We all know how Zeus is the most powerful of all the gods but he has a very jealous wife, Hera, so he shapeshifts into various entities on Earth to avoid her. In this series, we follow Heron, a demigod. Everyone seeks to kill the birth mother of Heron, Electra because Zeus has a LOT of lovers and they’re jealous of her.
Gods vs Giants
The story that incites the plot is the Gigantomachy, the legendary battle between Mount Olympus gods and the Giants. The show depicts the Giants as emerging from a fallen Titans’ blood. The show throws in an extra creation-story spin by showing the ruler god Zeus introducing reason and compromise to the Earth by persuading two of the Giants to ally with the gods.
So Many Gods
There a lot of greek mythology gods that are shown here, some of which are: the sun-shining Apollo with his golden chariot, the Sonic-agile messenger Hermes in his winged boots, Hephaestus the weapons-forger, the warrior Ares, Aphrodite the pink-glowing goddess of love, and Apollo’s twin sister Artemis.
It’s not Greek mythology worldbuilding without the stock-but-stunning locales: Mount Olympus, the Underworld, and the domain of the Fates. The show peeks into the realms of the Underworld across the River Styx, including the divine Field of Elysium.
If you’re interested in watching the show here’s a trailer for the show.
