The main gimmick of the season seems to be retelling of character pasts and re-imagining of japanese legends. Both of those kinda lack punch.

Although, I really enjoyed one of the episodes that displayed hell from its darker side.

The art is nice and more or less unique to this anime, however, those guys blatantly cut animation costs at every opportunity they get. It is not noticeable, but there are a lot of scenes with little movement in ...
