Getting even is best done with a sword. Hold on to your guns, because Netflix is adding Blue Eye Samurai to its long list of animated shows. The show is set in rural Japan in the 17th century during the Edo period. It follows Mizu (Maya Erskine), a mixed-race samurai known for her blue eyes, as she goes on a violent rage to find the man who took her mother against her will and ruined her life. Blue Eye Samurai is a series that brings together action, historical drama, and animation. It was written by the same person who wrote Logan and Blade Runner 2049.
The director of “The Shape of Water” gave an Oscar speech in which he said, “Animation is cinema, animation is not a genre, and animation is ready to be taken to the next step.” It’s expected that Blue Eye Samurai will join adult animation series like Castlevania and Invincible. It has a darker tone than Quentin Tarantino’s Western movies, but it looks and tells stories like Akira Kurosawa’s “chanbara” (sword fighting) movies, which are also called “samurai cinema” in English. Here is everything we know about Blue Eye Samurai right now.

What is the story of “Blue Eye Samurai”?
Blue Eye Samurai is set in Japan in the 1600s, a time when the country’s borders were pretty much closed off. People in Japan could only dream of traveling outside of Japan, but every once in a while, people from other countries would come to Japan, usually to do business illegally. The main character of Blue Eye Samurai, Mizu (Eskine), gets more attention. One of the four white men in Japan took her mother against her will before she was born. This ends up causing Mizu to be born, which she sees as a curse. She calls herself a “creature of shame” and was born in Japan with steel-blue eyes. Now that she is an adult, Mizu wants to get back at the monster that made her by killing the four white men who were there when she was born.
But it’s almost impossible for Mizu to get payback. One thing that was unheard of at the time was women becoming samurai. As part of her quest, Mizu hides the fact that she is a girl and covers up her blue eyes with glasses. Along the way, many characters join her, such as the overly enthusiastic soba maker Ringo (Oka), the cocky warrior Taigen (Darnet), and the princess Akemi (Song). Mizu’s mind is filled with thoughts of revenge, but she slowly learns that beneath her warrior exterior, she is someone who hasn’t accepted her real feelings and weakness yet. It looks like her quest isn’t just about getting revenge; it’s also a journey to find out more about herself.
