So Netflix's Castlevania "anime" has been released... And at 4 episodes long, it's more of a "What do you guys think...?" test, rather than a full season 1. Probably why "season 2" has already been approved and is 8 episodes... In order to add up to 12 for a proper season 1.

And yes, since season "2" has already been announced, you can guess that, yes, it is pretty awesome.

Reminds me a bit of Attack on Titan in that it is very medieval, and not afraid to show gore... But also has it's own gimmicks that keep it from being just a simple Fantasy Horror.

Basically without spoiling too much... The series is retelling the NES game Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse, which is mostly famous for being tied to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. In the first 4 episodes we are eventually introduced to 3 of the 4 main characters of the game.

If you have any interest in fantasy horror, I urge you to watch it. Definitely worth your time.

I cannot wait for the next 8 episodes.

Oh yes, and it is available in both English and Japanese, so you can choose your poison. The English version is very good though. Normally I prefer my Anime in Japanese, but the production values are really high on this, and the quality shows.

I liked it!

Story kinda typica,  following the early & later video games.

I hope they continue the series.

It gave me hope for other stories to be told that way.  I'd love to see "Hellraiser"done in anime. Doug Bradley would probaly come back to the character Pinhead.  ("I am PAIN!")
