It was previously distributed by Netflix, and then broadcasted on TV after.
It is an anime based on a manga, with an unprecedented view of the world, in which human is given the possibility of salvation through the matchmaking of human vs god.
As representatives of the human, we have Lobu (from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms), Adam (from the Old Testament), Sasaki Kojiro, Jack the Ripper, and Raiden (a sumo wrestler), while the gods are Thor, Zeus, Poseidon, Hercules, and Shiva.
The animation is very good, like a more flamboyant version of "Baki" or "Kengan Asura", but the pace is such that it takes three or four episodes to finally settle a match, and I wish there was more of a sense of tempo. The background of the players is carefully explained in each episode, so it can't be helped in some ways.
