SPOILERS FOR ONYX EQUINOX EPISODE ONE “THE LAST DAY” BELOW
Onyx Equinox’s series premiere seemed to kick off by surprising a lot of people, just from your reactions on social media alone. It’s a violent, bloody affair that goes in some directions that many people weren’t expecting, while also giving a look at aspects of Mesoamerican culture that some folks might not have been familiar with. With the first episode finally being available to everyone, let’s take a look at what fans had to say on Twitter about Episode 1!
I just watched Onyx Equinox’s first episode….Omg it was bloodier than I expected xD I was for sure entertained the whole time. I’m so happy to see Aztec representation in an animated series. So excited to see the story progress 😀 @Crunchyroll pic.twitter.com/uu86mHqrrc

Just watched the first episode of Onyx Equinox on CrunchyRoll and was impressed on first viewing. I had somehow thought this was a kids show but, nope, this is basically an R-rated animation that does not shy away from certain aspects of Mesoamerican spirituality. Wow.

#OnyxEquinox It is something wonderful that although more than anime it is something hybrid, it is fascinating to see and as a Latino and to say that one feels the love and respect for the pre-Columbian past of the territory.

#OnyxEquinox episode 1: There’s a lot of potential to this story so I’m interested to see where it goes. Honestly motley crews on a mission is totally my thing so I’ll be pleased if it goes that way. Really hasn’t held back on the blood.

My partner and I watched the first episode of #OnyxEquinox today!
We then sent over an hour essentially going scene-by-scene and talking about each part, the designs, the gods, the authentic vs fantastical elements, the themes, the color choices – all of it!

It’s not every day you have a Main Protagonist whose greatest, shining talent, the one that gets them called “a prodigy”, is weaving beautiful textiles in a loom.#OnyxEquinox pic.twitter.com/3f5wf1f4nR
