Using the aristocracy to feed on humanity from the shadows, vampires in France await the coming of a promised vampire Messiah who will cover the land in permanent darkness to give them dominion over the world. Vampire hunter Richter Belmont and his comrades are determined to make sure this doesn't happen, but with danger coming at them from both bloodsuckers and their corrupt human allies, it becomes hauntingly apparent that victory is not assured - and not everyone may survive the ordeal.
Well... more of the same Netflix is doing lately: Racism, Bigotry and Ignorance. white people's religions = bad,white people = ignorant and villainous. black people= powerful and wise, black people religion = cool and powerful... Almost as if all the writers Netflix works with are Racists, only capable of hating on white people. This was sarcasm, we all know that Netflix writers are racists. The biggest irony, when you think about how these far left extremists push diversity and equality, but in truth they are simply Racists. For example, in episode 3, the story recounts the "liberation" of Haiti and Saint Dominique, which historically can be found under the "1804 Haitian massacre", a genocide in truth. But oh boy, the show glorifies this genocide, as if it were a good thing. This is at the same level as Holocaust deniers, and we don't like them, right ? So why do we not call out Netflix writers for the same disgusting deed ? This show is a perversion of Castlevania. It is not Castlevania. It's the rape of Castlevania by woke, racist Netflix writers who only use the Castlevania name to push as much woke agenda as possible.
Keep in mind, I have never played the Castlevania games. As someone who was not aware of the negative reception this series got until after I already watched it and formed my opinions, I will admit. This series is not good. But I don't consider it bad either. It was pretty middle of the road to me. I enjoyed the first episode a decent bit, but everything afterwards was not very engaging. I actually found it boring of all things. Which is baffling because of how engaged I found myself with the previous series. The characters nor story are not nearly as engaging, fun, or exiting. It just felt very flat. The main character doesn't feel at all like he is the MC. He has absolutely none of the personality Trevor had. I wasn't expecting/nor wanting him to be a carbon copy or anything like that. But they could have gave him something other then just his sad backstory that happened in the first episode. That is literally the only excuse I can think of other then bad writing as to why he has no personality. Because he was broken by the events that happened. And that is giving to much credit IMO. a majority of the characters were pretty bland and didn't seem well written. Annette Is the only character I can think of that actually had noticeable effort put into her. But I sadly found her boing like the majority of the cast. The only characters I found myself liking were Olrox and Julia. Only because they have character archetypes I am usually drawn too. I will say the animation, character designs, and voice acting were all pretty good. So there is that at least.
It was enjoyable. This new title stands out all on it’s own, and is enjoyable on it’s own, meaning you do not need to watch original Netflix Castlevania series (especially if you know the games), it’s a nice installment to a beloved story by fans. The story of Castlevania continues in a new format with new characters. I was hyped for this show and it gave a new experience for a series I love. This new story delivered with new style of animation, art style, fighting scenes, and (slower) growth of characters. The first season definitely set up the second season to have amazing growth in story and characters, especially ones that didn’t get much of a backstory. A lot of questions were raised throughout the story with a lot of high stake fights, conflicts, and overall living in a world where vampires are continuing to control the world humans live in . Each character plays an important part to the story, even the minor characters contribute to the main characters story in one way or another, which is really nice. Overall picture was nice. The story was similar to the original series with the same conflicts, just delivered in a new way. Loved how Alucards art style was close to Symphony of the night. That was nice for those of us who loved playing the games.
