I hadn't kept up with the hype this spring, and sort of stumbled
over the series, thinking "Holy crud, a Netflix-produced animé, and
featuring Castlevania no less! Gotta watch this!"
The Castlevania series has been a staple of my childhood, and I
absolutely love playing through the games from time to time.
Nowadays I've also gotten appreciative of the amount of camp
scattered throughout the series, something that went way over
Needless to say, I didn't expect much. I mean, it isn't a
masterpiece by any means, but it is actually pretty entertaining.
I've seen people complain that it doesn't ~stay true to the original
material~ (whatever that means), but they seem pretty boring anyway.
Sure, there are a few holes in the lore, and it lurches a bit
storywise, and it is a bit weird with Dracula being a sort of
asshole-Dr Who in contact the legions of hell, but come on!
The four first subbed episodes are available at GoGoAnime.
