Blood of Zeus review (small spoilers)

I’ll be the first to admit that stories inspired by Greek mythology are incredibly hit-or-miss, mostly because of how overused it is as a foundation. I was skeptical going into this for that very same reason, but considering the art style reminded me of Castlevania, I gave it a try. Thankfully, I was not at all disappointed. While the origins of the story rely heavily on familiar Greek tropes, the inclusion of Japanese anime tropes and some unique American elements creates a fairly refreshing experience. As always, Zeus is a whore, and our heroes journey is the consequence of that, but unlike most times, this time we actually see Zeus pay for his actions. Rather than a typical American take on Greek myth that villainizes Hades for no reason, this series provides a well-written villain who you honestly root for in the beginning. In fact, the only main character who isn’t well crafted in my opinion is the protagonist, but that works in his favor. The first season was definitely entertaining and I’m eager to see what happens next.
