Welcome to a world ravaged by explosions of violence, a world without love. Jung, the broken-hearted hero, pursues his quest: reunite with Maria, his lost love, savagely decapitated by Little Jesus. He can count on the support of allies met along his bloody path, encounters that provide an understanding of others, but especially of himself. He also has to deal with his “violent outbreaks,” an uncontrollable curse that springs from his murderous soul.
Netflix has been leading the charge in delivering new mature animated series. I honestly thought we’d seen the darkest and weirdest with the likes of Devilman Crybaby, Love Death and Robots, Super Drags, and Seis Manos. However, Crisis Jung appears to have gone past pushing the envelope and shoved the envelope through a paper-shredder.
That’s not to say that this new show only has sex and violence going for it. The animation quality is superb and makes use of big and small moments to sell it’s jokes. Crisis Jung is also an example of a French animated series. I’m a super-fan of French animation and would love to see it grow to be as popular as anime.
Crisis Jung will be streaming on Netflix France on February 1st. It’s unclear when the American release will follow.
