Onimusha Anime: Netflix Shares First Look Images

Netflix has announced and revealed five images from an Onimusha anime based on the hit Capcom game series.
Revealed in a tweet from Netflix Anime (below), the stills show a handful of characters against a backdrop of Japan's Edo period. The anime is being created with 3D, CGI characters and hand-drawn backgrounds, and the series promises to give new life to the classic game series.
No release date was announced but Netflix did reveal the team behind Onimusha's anime. The project is being led by Takashi Miike and Shinya Sugai from Sublimation (the studio that released the Dragon's Dogma anime in 2020) and features Toshihiro Mifune as Musashi Miyamoto.

A short plot-synopsis was also released (courtesy of Gematsu), with Netflix saying: "The beginning of the Edo period, Musashi is no longer a young man. He departs with the legendary Oni Gauntlet to defeat the Genma."
The Onimusha series began in 2001 but has been more or less dormant (outside of a mobile game, browser game, and remaster) since 2006, when Dawn of Dreams was released on the PlayStation 2.
Capcom hasn't said much about whether the series will make a full return, but did comment the this would be "the first animated adaptation of its game series Onimusha" and it is "firmly committed to enhancing the brand value of its content" through different forms of media.
10 Best Netflix Anime SeriesFrom mecha to magical girls, adorable red pandas to horrific demons, Netflix continues to grow its anime library. It can be a challenge to choose which anime to binge next as Netflix continues to grow its shake up its library with new licenses and originals each month. The IGN Staff took on the task of picking the 10 best anime currently available (as of October 2018) on Netflix in the U.S. <b>Aggretsuko</b>
Sanrio may be known for cute and charming characters, and while this raging red panda is certainly lovable, the themes and topics her anime tackles are anything but sweet. Sanrio’s Aggretsuko follows Retsuko, a Tokyo office worker who deals with her frustrations with daily sexism and other workplace mistreatment through death metal karaoke. But even with such serious topics, Aggretsuko manages to still make those themes approachable through its great writing and fun cast of characters. This anime is great subbed or dubbed too!
Subbed and Dubbed<b>Death Note</b>
Imagine if you could kill someone, just by writing their name in a book. You just scribble it down, and they’re dead. A frightening concept, right? Well, a terrifying demon grants that ability to High School Student Light Yagami in Death Note. This pulse-pounding game of cat and mouse features an unforgettable rivalry between Light and L, the quirky teen-prodigy detective tasked with hunting down Light’s killer alter ego, Kira. Light’s rise to power chills and mesmerizes, as he toys with the idea of who truly deserves punishment and who is the right person to deliver that judgement.
Subbed and Dubbed<b>Devilman Crybaby</b>
A compelling, psychedelic plot that’s hyper violent and hyper sexual and features drug-use, Devilman Crybaby commits to its adult themes, but all in service to a story that left us breathless. In the series, main character Akira (one of the world’s biggest softies) transforms into a bestial demon, but rather than giving in to his darkest carnal desires, he uses his newfound abilities to combat a world that has gone to hell. This anime has potency, heaviness and intensity comparable to the classic Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Subbed and Dubbed<b>Gurren Lagann</b>
This electric anime combines the post-apocalyptic and mecha genres with vibrant, colorful animation and a fun, dynamic story. Humanity has been forced underground after monsters have overtaken Earth’s surface, but an unlikely duo (a flashy dude in sick 80s shades and a scrawny, worried-eyed boy) drills their way to the top, joining a sniper-wielding badass in a bikini (oh, and a little mole creature). This is a wild ride you do not want to miss!
