    We're never going to get another game so this will have to do.

    No pressure, Netflix. No pressure at all.

    Warren Ellis wrote it, apparently. This makes me optimistic.

    It's always best to assume that something is going to be terrible. Best case scenario, it's awesome and you're pleasantly surprised. Worst case, it's awful and you were right all along.

    The show released to Netflix yesterday and they confirmed a season 2 today. Have any of you nerds seen it yet?

    Yeah. It's fantastic but there's only 4 episodes so it's like, blueballs in animated form.

    So some weeb sites I frequent have this out, is it a straight adaptation, or did they take a new creative direction?

    Looks like this series is going to be based entirely on Castlevania III. If it was in text form I'd call it a novelization of the game, though the plot is expanded for obvious reasons. This season just focused on getting the gang together.

    Also, while it has an anime style, I wouldn't call it anime. So far it hasn't followed any anime tropes, for one thing.

    It's like some weird mix of gory fighting cartoon with almost classic cartoon kinda humor in some parts (like the bar fight). But then it also gets serious and dark. Over all I would recommend to anyone that's a fan of the games.

    I saw first two episodes as a huge fan of the series SOTN being a top 5 if not 3 game of all time for me. I friggen dig it, and my word is it violent. That doesn't bother me but was not expecting it.

    Watched it yesterday and loved it. The anime visuals combined with Western writing and cast works really well.

    Apparently the reason that season one is so short is that Warren Ellis wrote the script for what was supposed to be a direct-to-DVD Castlevania movie in 2007, then it sat until the folks who owned it sold the thing to Netflix. Ellis' contract for season one is only to rework his original script, so they were limited to what was supposed to be like an 80-minute movie to split into episodes. The next season is so much longer because it's all fresh material, and Ellis considers it more of a continuation of season one than anything else.

    I like Belmont. Cocky, drunken burnouts are fun when done right.

    Thanks for the backround, I just finished last night much to the dismay of my g/f.

    I am so giddy for S2.

    I don't think I'm alone when I see a franchise I like and from childhood coming back I get worried, it's not how I thought they would do it, but it's good. Good is all I ask. By good, I mean fucking great.
