Castlevania: The Animated Series



Quote:
Producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) announced on Wednesday that he is working on an animated mini-series based on Konami's Castlevania game series. Shankar also announced that he is working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Kolde of Frederator Studios (Adventure Time, The Fairly OddParents), as Frederator Studios had acquired the rights to adapt the series.

Shankar told the Collider website that he is basing the series' story on the Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse game. Shankar states that the series will be "dark, [and] satirical," influenced by anime such as Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Ninja Scroll, as well as the American animated series Young Justice.

Actually JUST heard about this.

Here is a poster they have up for it.

http://assets1.ignimgs.com/2017/02/2...62394_610w.jpg

And here is a rundown of all the latest info.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/02/...nimated-series

Dunno jack all about the producer, but the man writer and exec producer Warren Ellis is a famous novelist and Comic Book scribe so the writing part of the series should be interesting.

Now we just have to see some character and art design mockups.

It is heartening to see an dramatic adult US produced animated serial, they still are all too rare here.

Still it is quite interesting Konami greenlighted a project for a dormant game franchise like this IMO. This show (IF SUCCESSFUL) could very well dictate the style people expect from future franchise games, at least in the west. (Japan is another story)

This is as opposed to Capcom who controls the prevailing image of ResEvil due to continuous game releases.

Oh well, we should figure out more in the coming months, it is set to begin streaming this year.

The first season (4 eps) of Castlevania are up on Netflix.

It's pretty damn sweet.

Only 4 episodes? Boo. And do they have a subtitled version? Though I just watched a bit of the dub. It's actually not too bad so far. Still, I'd be curious to see Japanese VAs do this.

It's original dub is English one. There are two versions present: English and Japanese with subs as far as I know.

Hmm, I don't see an option for Japanese with subs on Netflix. I'll hunt it down eventually. Well, I just finished watching it dubbed. Wasn't bad actually. Normally I really hate dubbing, but they seem to have gotten real actors rather then the usual ones you always see doing VA work. It really makes a difference.

Netflix JP probably is English subbed, but as far as I'm aware USA/AUS is English dubbed.

Seen both the english and japanese dubs. Very good.
Anyway, it was a great show to watch and very mature violent like Game of Thrones.
Can't wait to see the next season.

Only 2 episodes in so far. Only complaint I have so far is a very nitpicky one at that. I haven't heard any classic Castlevania themes yet!

But seriously, it's absolutely amazing so far. I was starting to think it'd be highly improbable to make a decent anime adaption of it's story, but so far, so good.

Don't lose hope. I know it's only based off Castlevania 3, but there's still a chance something like that could be shown.

*edit*
Just finished up and my opinions haven't changed. Sucks its only 4 episodes, but if they're well paced, I'd prefer that over 12 episodes that might drag somewhere in between.

It was almost hard to feel sorry for the shitty humans.

I mean, Dracula is a monster, but he DID give them a whole year to GTFO his land.
Which is a lot more reasonable than you'd expect from a villain gone insane with vengeance.

I hope this changes. Can you imagine if they did a rendition of Vampire Killer as the team face off Dracula?
Holy crap that would be amazing.

I agree. And I actually liked the fact that they tried to give Dracula some sort of compelling motivation for what he's doing and then having it be established right from the start.

This series does an excellent job making you hate the church. The 1st episode had some major Berserk vibes going for it. And the way the church acted and the manner through which everyone blindly followed what they had to say was definitely one of the reasons why.

Indeed it would. The possibilities are limitless. I mean that series has produced so many good tracks over the years that they could use for so many different situations and battles. Hell, my urge to hear some classic castlevania music to this series was so bad that I ended up spending a few minutes last night putting this together.

(I'd youtube it, but it'd get taken down immediately)
It's just the OP set to "Beginning" (Dreams of Triumph version)
It didn't take much editing of the song to make it work. And it sounds so much better than that generic dark and ominous song that sounds like it's in every other netflix original series.

If this becomes really successful and they end up making more series based on other CV games, I hope they make one for AoS and that they are able to use the game's original soundtrack. Can you imagine hearing a modern rendition of Castle Corridor and Heart of Fire? That's going to be awesome.

Yes, the Bishop and his lackeys were obviously monsters here.
But that was to be expected, my beef is more to do with Wallachians in the show being godawful people with little to no redeeming quality in general

- A guy who clearly express he wishes no trouble and no involvement -> Lynch him because why the F not!
- Lisa uses modern medicine to try and help the sick -> Burn the witch!
- Speakers are kind hearted people just there to help the people of this land -> Pagans! Kill them all!

Trevor was completely right, F these people. Pack up and leave, let Lord Dracula's minions have their dinner.
These wretches don't deserve Lisa or the Speakers.
