The animators of Castlevania will bring the “Gods and Heroes” of old to Netflix
Netflix is at it again with yet another anime announcement, this one called “Gods and Heroes” by the same studio that recently animated hit anime series Castlevania, Powerhouse Animation. Netflix has ordered 8 episodes of this Greek mythology infused series with show creators Charley and Vlas Parlapanides, who worked on Immortals and Death Note, as writers and executive producers. The series boasts the voice talent of Jason O’Mara, Mamie Gummer, Derek Phillips, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jessica Henwick, Melina Kanakaredes, Claudia Christian and Elias Toufexis.
This new anime series tells the story of “a young man who, cast aside by his people, learns that he is the illegitimate son of Zeus. He alone can save both Heaven and Earth but to do so he must survive the vengeful wrath of a goddess who wants him dead and the monstrous forces of evil she aligns against him.”
Both Vlas and Charley Parlapanides, creators of the show were excited to say, “In Gods & Heroes we wanted to tell a wholly original story set in the beloved world of Greek mythology. We are thankful for such an amazing cast and for such great creative partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation, who continue to push the envelope and expand the anime genre in a manner we had only dreamed of.”
So if Castlevania, Devilman Crybaby, Godzilla: The Planet Eater, Baki, Seven Deadly Sins and the upcoming anime shows of Pacific Rim, Altered Carbon, and Ghost in the Shell aren’t to your liking maybe “Gods and Heroes” will do the trick
