Onimusha is officially getting an anime adaptation which will be arriving to Netflix, as announced at the Netflix TUDUM 2022 event. You can take the first look at the anime version of CAPCOM’s popular game below:
The anime will be created by Takashi Miike (The Blade of the Immortal, Terra Formars, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I) as the chief director and Shinya Sugai (Shikizakura, Dragon’s Dogma) as the director at studio Sublimation. The main character Musashi Miyamoto was modeled after the late Toshiro Mifune.
