Netflix Does Castlevania Better Than Konami

When I first heard that Netflix would be adapting Castlevania into one of their original series, I was extremely excited to see one of the most revered gaming franchises finally brought to life, but also hit with a smidge of dread at how absolutely horrible it could turn out to be. With that being said, I’m so glad this show kicks some major ass.

The four episode season was short and sweet. Long enough to establish the characters and their motivations, and short enough to have us thirsty for more. Castlevania appears to be an adaption of the nes classic Dracula’s Curse,  but has offered some cool takes on the story so far.

The animation and action are incredible, but beware this show is not for the faint of heart. Blood and violence is in abundance and is showing no signs of letting up, actually I’m certain it will get much worse. Watching this series, I can’t help but think what if Netflix made an updated Spawn animated series. Damn.

If you are a fan of Castlevania, or just looking for something good to binge watch, this is definitely what you need. The show starts and ends strong, keeping you glued to the screen. I can only hope season two doesn’t take too much time to get here.
