According to Hideo Kojima, the anime Blue Eye Samurai is the best of 2023



On your twitter Hideo Kojimathe famous creator of Metal Gear It is Death Strandingleft great praise for the anime Blue Eye Samurai which premiered last November 3rd on Netflix. He even goes so far as to claim that it is the best anime of 2023.

Kojima he wrote:

I just watched all 8 episodes of Blue Eye Samurai! Oh, it’s all wonderful! Everything is beautiful! It’s definitely the best anime of the year! No, it’s a video work that goes beyond what is usual in anime!

The new generation of CG animation reached a turning point with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)” and reached maturity with “Arcane (2021)”, but this work has reached a new level!

“Is the demon of revenge a demon or a samurai? Or is it a monster?” The theme and message are simple. This is a story about people who are at the mercy of the times and are trapped by ‘predetermined rules’ who try to find freedom of their own accord. The story takes place in Edo in the 17th century, it is also relevant to the present day… Highly recommended! It’s a loss if you don’t watch.
