Gory, violent and burning of flesh

It’s okay for 16-year olds and older.

Amazing but brutal

I absolutely loved this show. There is a lot of gore- beheadings, murderous rage and a lot of blood so this definitely isn’t a show for people who are squeamish. There is some sex talk, but it’s mostly Hera talking how angry she is at Zeus. The characters are really well developed and the plot is really interesting and engaging. There are people who attack a woman for having a child without being married, calling her a wh—e and wanting to kill her. Overall though, I LOVED this show and I highly recommend

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

This compelling series successfully combines all the fascinating drama from Greek mythology with the bloody fantasy style of Japanese anime to tell a classic story in a new way. While Heron isn't an official character in traditional Greek myths, his presence among Zeus' many illegitimate children feels credible. The connections made between classic Greek tales and the common demonic enemies of humanity are nearly seamless, too.

Anime fans won't be disappointed by the series' content, which features lots of violence, nudity, and mature themes. But even those who don't usually tune in to this kind of entertainment may find themselves easily drawn into the story world, too. Overall, Blood of Zeus is a fun, intense, and binge-worthy series for viewers old enough to handle it.
