If you’re still confused about this series, let me make it simpler. This is a Tokusatsu genre, basically ‘Special Effects’ artistry. Which mixes the use of CGI and man in suits. Part Horror, part J-Drama, part Action/Martial Arts; it’s almost like a Wuxia in its own way. It has butt kicking men and woman in leather jackets, underage girl, curly hair warriors, dragon egg, super heroes. Did I just made it more confusing? Scratch that, it’s gonna be awesome. Hopefully so, as I will be recapping this!
ZERO -DRAGON BLOOD- is directed by series creator Keita Amemiya (Garo, Makai Senki, Makai no Hana, Gold Storm Sho) episodes count is TBA, the series premieres on January 6th.
