Blood of Zeus (Animated series)

Originally called Gods & Heroes, this original story is set in the world of Greek mythology. The two creators and writers are brothers Vlas and Charley Parlapanides. These two are the creative forces behind Immortals and Death Note. The voice cast includes Jason O’Mara, Mamie Gummer, Chris Diamantopoulos, Derek Phillips, Jessica Henwick, Melina Kanakaredes, Claudia Christian, and Elias Toufexis. 

The story gets right into the action of things. Being that the 2 creators are Greek, and the backdrop for the anime is in Greece, there isn't much room or effort for ethnic diversity in this. The pacing is pretty quick in the 8 episode story arch and the animation is crisp, bloody, and gory. The writers showcase that at least one of the gods is bisexual. Even with good story telling, they cast the only black character as a slave/gladiator. The deaths in this show are gruesome and not for children at all. Definitely a binge worthy 2 hours worth of content.

I rated this series: Entertaining with 4/5 TV remotes.
