Castlevania on Netflix

Published on Monday, July 10th, 2017

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
kid-me's head.

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](https://gogoanime.io/category/castlevania).
