Not only Japanese anime, but American anime has also gathered a huge fan following. One such American anime is- Blood of Zeus. It is a television series, which aired on Netflix in 2020. Charley and Vlas Parlapanides are their original creators and writers. Powerhouse Animation Studio- an American studio looked after its production, and finally, the first episode was released on October 27, 2020.
The plot covers many Gods, taken from Greek Mythology. Zeus, his son Heron, Electra, Artemis- all these gods have been sketched as characters. Our main lead Heron, who is part divine and part human, tries to save the city of Olympus and Earth.
The story began with the mistreatment of Heron by the villagers, whom they consider a bastard. He lives with his mother Alexia and the mother-son pair has only one friend who is an old man- Elias. Alexia can save her son from the attack of demons and further explains to him the treaty between Zeus and giants, in which he asked the giants to betray their tribe, by throwing their corpses into the sea.
The corpse was later discovered and humans ate its flesh and hence were converted into demons. Now, Heron refuses to protect his village man from the attack of demons as they mistreated him and her mother, who eventually burns herself to prove her humanity.
Zeus later acknowledges that Elias is Zeus in disguise as an elder man. Heron also comes to know that he is born out of infidelity and his twin brother was assassinated. Zeus confronts Heron seeking forgiveness, but Heron declines.
A fierce battle takes place between Hera and Zeus. At the end of it, Electra is executed and Heron is held captive. Hera along with Seraphim plans revenge against Heron. She also gets hold of the sword which Zeus forged for Heron. Zeus tries to convince his wife Hera about his loyalty, but she insists on the killing of Heron, which is against Zeus. Heron on the other hand began taking training to control his anger and to prepare himself for a fight. Another battle takes place between Zeus, Alexia, Heron, and Hera, Seraphim.
