Castlevania Anime TV series and Movies and OVAs!!

http://www.joystiq.com/2006/08/07/pr...evania-series/

According to GameDaily Biz, production company Project 51 has snatched up the animation rights to the Castlevania series. And what's already in the works? The company plans on developing DVD movies, a TV series, and a theatrical release.

But, before you dismiss this as some half-assed effort to cash in on a storied video game franchise, Project 51 is planning to work with Konami's Koji Igarashi to keep things all good in the vampire hood.

The company says: "Castlevania has horror and action, but at its core is a great story about a family that has fought against Dracula for hundreds of years. We want to be true to the characters and stories that [the fans] enjoy, but we want to bring people beyond the game fans to it."

For those unaware, Crystal Sky Pictures got the movie rights for Castlevania last year and Paul W.S. Anderson has already been announced as director and writer for the picture which is scheduled for release next year.

w00t I can't wait! at least we will have something better then Paul Anderson's crappy ass movie.

I like the art style. Better than DS's WB kids-lookin' thing.

The anime i'm sure will rock but, the live action flick with Paul Anderson............We all hope it'll be good but, looking at his track record, i won't hold my breath.

I'd watch it. As long as its not FOXKIDS style like the games though.

PS(my brother just showed me Alucard in Dawn of Sorrow. I think seeing him FOXKIDS rendered made part of my insides die)

If it were me I would make each season about each character in the belmont line going all the way back to 1400 and frozen stiff and then I would eventually go all the way into the future to finalise it with some surreal and sci-fi trippy Belmont on Vampire action.
