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.

Audience Reviews for Blood of Zeus: Season 1

    Blood of Zeus is a mature animated series that blends Greek Mythology and traditional storytelling with modern, graphic action quite successfully in a fast paced series. The characters vary in intrigue, some falling into predictable tropes and others being fully fleshed out in this modernised story. (Minor spoilers ahead) The protagonist Heron falls into predictable tropes and feels like the shadow of generic Greek heroes, being a bastardised demigod who you just know will ‘save all of Olympus!' The antagonist Seraphim is a shade more interesting, feeling threatening and somewhat relatable due to the excellent backstory episodes in the middle of the series. However, he falls into typical revenge fantasy tropes and has few defining characteristics. The Gods, the highlight of the show in my opinion, are brought into this animation near their full glory. The drama, which varies from domestic affairs to political coups is ever intriguing and Hera and Zeus are easily the best characters of the show, feeling fleshed out and dynamic in their relationship whilst staying true to the mythos. Most other characters are tolerable but not very layered and shall hopefully be fleshed out in the upcoming second season. I am particularly looking forward to seeing hades who takes a backseat this season but seemed to be foreshadowed as a major player in the next season. The visuals are compelling, graphic and modern and complement the fast paced story which is familiar, if a little predictable and improves throughout the series from the lacklustre first episode and climaxing in a satisfying, action packed finale. It's not perfect but I found it enjoyable and it revitalised my interest in Greek Mythology. 7/10

    Let us get some things straight first: this is, to my personal understanding of those concepts, neither anime (done outside of Japan by non-Japanese), nor, most certainly, a classic Greek myth, though it bluntly states to be both (and at the same time!). OK, so, with the air properly cleared, I would like to state that I quite enjoyed "Blood of Zeus", especially since it was neither of those things. But I enjoyed it only to some extent, as the closer it got to the ending the stronger it occurred to me that it wants to achieve far too much far too quickly – as if it wanted to amass the wealth of lore, plot-lines and big reveals of a show one houndred episodes in length in just a couple of hours. So while the many events that we can witness here can keep our attention, they leave afterwards little to no effect. It has, I admit, markings of worthy adult action animated show, but will only deserve to be called that after it will give itself more time to breath in a handful of next seasons.

    This series was so good it reignite my curiosity about greek mythology. With great action sequences, character development and worldbuilding. Really looking to see more... I even bought and reed Greek mythology books thanks to this show.

    I forced my greek history teacher to watch it. He wasn't impressed. The voice acting was meh and didn't always match the screen. The character design is too minimalistic at some points and over the top at others. The voices don't match the characters at points, either.. The plot is cookie-cutter "my dad the god, me the hero" stuff.
  • Mar 05, 2021
    Generic and boring, not engaging at all. I'm amazed how this is getting such good reviews.
  • Feb 23, 2021
    Un argumento bastante flojo. Personajes poco desarrollados y diálogos sin fuerza alguna. La animación hay momentos que no tiene en cuenta las proporciones ni las leyes de la física. Me recuerda a los dibujos de Conan el aventurero(1992) pero con sangre y decapitaciones....
  • Feb 21, 2021
    The greatest single-season ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Feb 15, 2021
    Excelente proyectos así es que deben volver a la televisión, la animación para adultos debe volver y estar mas presente, esta serie es espectacular totalmente recomendable y hasta educativa sobre la mitología griega altamente recomendable.

    No great, but so long as you ignore the plotholes as much as the characters do you can stomach it (logic and even previous episodes be damned). After a few episodes i actually had to restart as I made a little game for myself naming all the other, better, shows and movies the writes must have watched for "inspiration" before throwing this together. And i'm not talking Clash of the Titans or Hercules, I swear whole scenes were lifted practically verbatim from the original Star Wars trilogy LMAO

    Blood of Zeus is a great show so far. Im on episode 6 and already want season2 to come out. The soundtrack amazing 👌 🙌 , the characters voice perfect, and I love the back & 4th conflict between Zeus and Hera.
