East of West can at times be difficult to describe in terms of belonging to a single genre, its neither a Western, Sci-Fi, Romance nor a fantasy tale. It is a genre-bender- a western with anime styled Sci-Fi settings with supernatural and emotionally conflicting tones sprinkled throughout.
East of West is a high-octane genre bending adventure. A title that blends together the best themes of a spaghetti western film with all the grace of Japanese sci-fi and manga .Focusing on Death, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, we follow the character as he roams the lands of post-apocalyptic America as he seeks revenge on the those responsible for the death of his wife and child.
