Blue Eye Samurai Season 2: As of now, there hasn’t been an official announcement regarding the release date for Season 2 of “Blue Eye Samurai.” The series has garnered positive reviews from both critics and viewers, and the confirmation of a second season has generated anticipation among fans. However, specific details about the return of Mizu and the continuation of the storyline are still under the rug. Fans will need to stay tuned for further updates from the streaming service regarding the release schedule for the upcoming season.
“Blue Eye Samurai,” created by Michael Green and Amber Noizumi, was originally conceived as a live-action project and transformed into an animated series. The creators, who dedicated over a decade to bringing Mizu’s story to life, decided to adapt the tale into an animated format. Green and Noizumi express their aspiration for the series to extend to “four seasons and a movie.”
About Blue Eye Samurai Season 2
As of now, the second season of Blue Eye Samurai does not have a confirmed release date or window. While it appears improbable for the series to take another decade to release episodes, considering the creators’ outlined plans, a return for Mizu in the current year seems unlikely. However, unpredictability is not uncommon in the animation industry.
Here’s how the streaming service describes Mizu’s story, “In 17th-century Japan, when borders are closed to the outside world, citizens would never see a face that was not Japanese, except in rare cases of illegal trade. Our hero, Mizu (Erskine), knows there were only four white men in Japan at the time of her birth and sets off to kill these men, one of whom might be her father, who made her a ‘creature of shame.’ But, revenge is not an option for women, so Mizu must forge her revenge quest while hiding her gender as well as her blue eyes.”
“Mizu is joined on her journey by Ringo (Masi Oka), an overeager soba maker who dreams of greatness; Taigen (Darren Barnet), a pompous samurai whose rivalry leads to an uneasy truce; and Princess Akemi (Brenda Song), Taigen’s betrothed, whose gilded life seems a foil to Mizu’s. Her revenge quest leads us across Edo-era Japan in a provocative series that immerses the viewer in vivid adult animation with a live-action edge.”
