Castlevania Show coming to Netflix!
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:08:34 AM »

Looks like Netflix is on a roll with their new shows and they are planning to release a new show based on Castlevania.  Not a lot of details are available (or hardly any, to be honest).  You can read about it here:  Netflix Has Announced a Castlevania TV Show for 2017.

That could be cool. Have to see how it turns out but Netflix has a pretty good record with their own shows.

That's what I was thinking.  They have really been making excellent shows so this has a good chance of being another one of their excellent shows.  One example is the new Voltron show they made.  It really is awesome.  If this turns out to be close to that in quality, we are in for a treat.

It's Castlevania day! Early reviews seem to be pretty good, with the only real negative being that it's only 4 episodes at 20 minutes a piece. Looks like I'll be watching them all this weekend :)

I finished watching these and they are pretty good.  I can't believe the season is only 4 episodes long!  I was not happy about that, particularly with how the story ended.  The animation is fantastic, though, and certainly not apt for children.  Adult language and gory stuff that is likely to scare kids.  This is animation created for adults.  I wonder how long we have to wait for season 2!

Watched it last night and loved it! They did a good job setting up the series but a few more episodes would have been nice.

It appears season 2 has already been approved and that one will have 8 episodes.  That should let them flesh it out more.
