A demon hunting ninja. A badass samurai. A young foolish boy with a gigantic sword. A blonde girl with skills given to her by a god. A wandering assassin. A weird flexible old guy into bondage. A guy out to save his country with a powerful weapon. An annoying girl chasing after a guy that left town. A zombie with incredible powers. That was the original cast from SE barring Rock. I hate to burst people's bubble but this franchise was started on anime clichés. I don't get where people are coming from when they say they're moving into a more anime like style. They are just using different clichés. That's all. Ninjas and Sorcery with different dimensions is also very anime like.
