Capcom's "Onimusha," the landmark survival action video game series set in Japan's feudal Sengoku period, is being adapted into an anime series that will start streaming from Thursday, 2 November, only on Netflix. Directed by Takashi Miike, this ambitious series will focus on Miyamoto Musashi, who is modeled after Toshiro Mifune, the Japanese film icon known around the globe. This is the beginning of an intense series full of realistic action in which Musashi's blade slices through evil as he traverses a land plagued by poverty.

Anime Adaptation 'Onimusha' Gives New Life to Legendary Game

New anime series Onimusha, based on Capcom's famous video game series of the same title, is premiering globally on Netflix on November 2.

The classic game is a landmark in the gaming world, known for its gripping survival action and stunning historical backdrop of Japan's tumultuous Warring States period. This is its first anime adaptation since debuting 22 years ago.

Taking the helm as supervising director is Takashi Miike, whose innovative depictions of cinematic swordplay in the critically acclaimed 13 Assassins and Blade of the Immortal have won over legions of fans. Together with director Shinya Sugai, celebrated for his work on CG anime Dragon's Dogma, and animation studio Sublimation, they aim to revolutionize the anime landscape with their unique take on Onimusha.

The focus of this adaptation is on Miyamoto Musashi, modeled after the late Japanese screen icon Toshiro Mifune. Set in the early Edo Period, a time when Japan was transitioning towards peace, and warfare was fading into history, an aging Musashi embarks on a covert mission. Armed with the mythical "Oni Gauntlet," Musashi embarks on an epic journey to vanquish the lurking demons. The main theme song, "THE LONELIEST," by Måneskin adds depth and emotion to the spellbinding saga.

What makes Onimusha truly groundbreaking is its fusion of cutting-edge 3D CGI character animations with beautifully hand-drawn backgrounds. This amalgamation of traditional and modern animation techniques promises to bring a fresh, immersive experience to both long-time fans and newcomers alike.
