Critic Reviews for Blood of Zeus Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (1)

As in Castlevania, this series unleashes an over-abundance of bloody violence and gore. Gods, giants, humans and even birds meet gruesome ends; this series's specialty seems to be death by bifurcation.

Nov 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The hierarchy of the Gods and their own personal drama, fuelled by the looming demonic threat, and even more backstory is really where Blood Of Zeus excels.

Nov 11, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

An awesome creative streak throughout all eight episodes ... is let down by a lack of surface-level and narrative detail that would set it apart.

Nov 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

As a fan of Greek mythology, a lot of the fun was seeing the characterization of each god and wondering which side they would choose.

Nov 4, 2020 | Full Review…

Blood of Zeus is often exhilarating whenever it's in motion, with spectacular action sequences that make up for any other shortcomings.

Nov 4, 2020 | Full Review…

Blood of Zeus is fun, intense, and a binge-worthy series for viewers old enough to handle it.

Nov 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Weaves in snatches of horror and is boosted by its crisp, clean animation, quick pace, snappy editing and creative character design.

Oct 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Just like a soap opera, or even Game of Thrones , these gods are constantly scheming and using each other as chess pieces, which only means trouble for the poor mortals on the ground that suffer the consequences.

Oct 28, 2020 | Full Review…

It is a mesmerizing and fresh display of Greek mythology through outstanding animation.

Oct 28, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Powerhouse Animation's gorgeous visuals bolster the engaging narrative, and excellent voice acting from veterans like Jason O'Mara and Jennifer Hale add a bit of gravitas to their respective characters.

Oct 28, 2020 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Blood of Zeus is easily one of the best series of the year - it entwines greek mythology with anime while enjoying that alternative feel.

Oct 27, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's the kind of poetic nuance that'd make Apollo, the god of music himself, proud.

    I was confused for pretty much the whole thing, I understood the premise but the storytelling wasn't too great. Also not really an anime as such, far too western and cartoonish to be. The concept is great! It's just not executed very well.

    Nice break from everything else that's currently out there..

    Amazing it's so good I loved that it wasn't watered down and westernized like a lot of mythology is. Every single character had accurate skin tone for Ancient Greece and Apollo's bisexuality wasn't cut which is the first time I've EVER seen. Cant wait for season 2!!!

    Overall a nice story. I love American anime.

    It's one of the best epic things I've seen in years. And the music composition is amazing.

    A fresh new take on Greek mythological. I feel those who appreciate mythology would love this series. You should not compare it to Castlevania because the Blood of Zeus for one is a different genre and a different anime. The first season is just a set up for an more interesting second season if it gets renewed. But like all good shows or anime that's how it goes starts of slow then the excitement rises as you get attached to characters.

    Greek mythology + anime? Yes please! I really hope we get a season 2. This was a great show.
  • Nov 17, 2020
    Blood of Zeus not only has a good story arch, it is also quite simply visually immaculate. The artistry and animation grip you as much as the storyline itself. Even if you're not a fan of Anime or animated television series, I'd highly recommend giving Blood of Zeus a watch. You won't regret it!
  • Nov 17, 2020
    The animation was incredible, the plot dynamics were overall amazing. I recommend if you are into greek mythology or just animation series. Hoping for a season 2!

    I have been frustrated by years with the versions of Greek mythology I see in movies and series. So, when Netflix announced this show, I told myself it would be just one more show. I still watched it, and I do not regret it! Blood of Zeus is a perfect show for anyone who wants to be introduced to the mythological world. The plot uses some cliches (but of course they use it, most of our cliches are based on the Greek myths, right?) that builds a very good narrative; these cliches were used through a new lens so even so you will not be frustrated with the journey and the outcome. Another thing I need to emphasize about this show is their commitment to the mythology itself. The show is deeply concerned with these details; there is a scene (spoiler alert) where Hermes is taking the soul of the deads to Hades; then we go he moving through the ocean to get into the underworld. That's how works in the original Greek mythology, to get into Hades you must cross the big river (the ocean) to the West. There are many more details that make this series so rich, I will leave them for you to discover as you watch it.
