Animation looks odd to me. Probably cause it's hand drawn with cgi.

That's all the rage these days. Have you watched the new Voltron? It's CGI all over the place but it made to look hand drawn. It's really quick and easy to do it that way rather than put actual effort, skill, and labor into the animation.

If it wasn't attached to Netflix, I'd be really skeptical. Since it is, I'm only slightly skeptical.

Personally, I'm only interested cause Warren Ellis wrote the story to it.

It's bad. I wouldn't waste your time. I got through 2 episodes and stopped watching it. The only appeal is the gore in it. Plots from the game are in it, like Alucard and his Mother. But, the 2 episodes I watched were just preachy crap that could have been summed up in 2 mins, but instead we get them talking about it for the entire episode and it's all the same narrative that you see in most stuff now, especially in marvel comics.

They, even in Castlevania, put in the whole science and belief crap and how she believes in facts and science....... WHEN SHE IS TALKING TO DRACULAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I wanted to shoot myself.

I will finish it. But holy shit. Why is all this SJW stuff in EVERYTHING now? Especially when it doesn't fit the story and takes away from it. People who used to be really creative seem to be going insane with these Social Political opinions in their works. I know they mostly have it hidden within the story... but it's banging you right on the head with most of it now and every writer is putting in the SAME EXACT POINT every single time. ie Christian straight White Males are PURE EVILLLLLLLLLLL!

If I wanted to watch something about that, I would go watch Anita Sarkeesian videos with a drill to my head.

So, watch it for the violence... ignore the story.

I actually enjoyed it. The animation is disgusting, but I did like it.

I didn't notice too much sjw stuff. It does use the Catholic Church as the bad guys, but I kinda like the evil Catholic Church trope. They make a good enemy!

The biggest problem with it is the animation. But even so many anime look awful these days, sadly.

Yeah it wasn't half bad. The violence was pretty well done. I agree the animation is pretty awful looking.

None of you mentioned the music! The music in anything related to Castlevania should never be so... mediocre. it needs to have awesome music. And it doesn't. The voice acting is TEH SuXX0RZ as well. Why does Sypha have such a horrible, forced accent? WHY??? Nobody else in that world has an accent even close to that. Why does she have that accent? Who made this decision? How do we send feedback to the authorities about this?

I can't even recall the music. I must have tuned it out.

I actually liked it. Maybe it's low expectations, but I'm really excited to see where they go with it in Season 2.

I don't really see how Social Justice plays a role in this, other than the church is kinda corrupt in it's higher ranks in this universe. Doesn't really feel forced at all. I mean, they did hunt 'witches' back in the day and that's what sets off the chain of events in this show...which is what happened in the game...so...what's the problem?

Not talking about the witch hunts. Talking about their conversations about it are just so forced and boring opinionated drivel that ALL writers are writing today. The dialog doesn't seem like they come from the character but the writer. I just find it really bad writing.

If you watch Dr. Who for example, he actually mentions Trump as being evil. I can't get away from this shit, it's everywhere!
I was reading a manga that I love from Gantz creator, Inu Yashiki.... Trump again telling everyone to go murder people cause he legalized murder.
Marvel did this for example.



I only use the trump examples cause it's the most obvious hit you in the head thing they are doing. Others, use symbolism and metaphors to do the rest.

It's just so bland and boring, if it was only here and there, it wouldn't bother me, but IT'S EVERYWHEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Actually, I will add this. There are some that do this the right way, like Alan Moore's stuff. I always like how he portrays stuff in his stories.

We must differ on what forced writing is because it didn't feel forced or unnatural to me, to be honest. The characters and groups in the show all have been negatively affected by the church. Belmont clan excommunicated, Seekers being blamed for Dracula's hordes, killing Lisa while Dracula was away. Forced writing is when characters bring up someone that has no real baring on the context of the story. In the show, it all kinda fits as all the characters have serious beef for the church and it's authority and use of violence and intimidation.
