Netflix‘s Blue Eye Samurai looks all set to be a samurai cinema masterpiece of chanbara proportions. At least, it will be when we finally get to see it. Fortunately, it won’t be long until we do, but that’s just enough time for Netflix to give us one more trailer for this upcoming animated series. Don’t believe me? Then why not watch that cinematic masterpiece trailer below, and see (and hear) if this is truly a masterpiece for yourself?

Blue Eye Samurai: Official Trailer #2 Details

You can tell that Netflix are going the full bloiody chanbara route here.

Netflix is proud to further hype up Blue Eye Samurai with that second official trailer above on YouTube. In the press release, Netflix are calling it the “Cinematic Masterpiece Trailer”, and you can clearly see and hear why here. Everything from the visuals to the soundtrack is evocative of the classic Japanese samurai movies. Indeed, this is basically a modern chanbara thriller, with extra layers of drama for those chanbara fans who feel that there aren’t enough female main characters in such works.

Fortunately, it won’t be long until we find out if this animated series lives up to the old chanbara cinema. Blue Eye Samurai is all set to make its streaming debut on November 3, 2023. Of course though, you can watch this series only on Netflix.
