Today in cursed monkey paw wishes, Capcom's Onimusha series is coming back — but not as a video game. Netflix has announced a new anime based on the property, and to be fair, it could be cool. Apparently, prolific director Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer, 13 Assassins, and many more) is behind the project, alongside Shinya Sugai, who's worked on a bunch of anime over the years.
It's admittedly difficult to get too excited about this project, though. Let's not forget that the last time Netflix published an anime based on a Capcom title, we ended up with the decidedly poor Dragon's Dogma adaptation. This Onimusha show will hinge on 3D animation, too.
We'll obviously need to see it in action, though, and fans will be hoping that Onimusha returning — in any form — might mean that Capcom is prepared to greenlight another game at some point. Fingers crossed!
