Castlevania (the series)

Recommended Posts

Just started the Netflix series, Castlevania and I have to say I'm pretty hooked. I'm really picky when it comes to American anime and most I don't care for because they are down right boring as heck. I finally reached season two, episode 5 last night. The only real issue for me on the series is the fact that the seasons are so dang short. Season one literally only has 4 episodes, ugh.

So does anyone else watch the series? What do you think of it?

I enjoyed it well enough. I particularly liked the interactions between Trevor & Sypha. Also kind of interesting the reinterpretations of the characters of Hector & Isaac. My biggest problem with it as an "American anime" is that pretty much translates into more profanity than the usual anime. I don't find it offensive, but I do have to roll my eyes at it sometimes (who knew the "F" was so prevalent in Medieval times lol). Still no match for Hellsing Ultimate or even the Vampire Hunter D movies, but yeah I'd watch another season to see where things go.

I agree with you there. Seems like American anime loves to drop the F bomb as much as a hooker drops her panties. Was kind of annoying. Otherwise I was surprised that the storyline was so enjoyable.

      For PS4/XB1/PC! I am so hyped for this game, don't know how Saitama is going to be balanced, just hoping all the technical stuff is done well and holding out for 4-6 player couch co-op seeing as 3v3 battles seems to be the main mode. Anyway guys, check out the trailer below and tell me what ya think! Tbh, I have been dying for an OPM game since I started watching the show, always thought an RPG would better suit a video game but I am incredibly excited because fighting games are my favorite genre.

      So, I have a challenge for myself and I don't know if anyone wants to help me out, but I think it would be pretty fun.
       
      I want new story Ideas but I also wanna see the free expression of characters, so I figured, why not let someone else choose what the characters do.
      And I don't mean choose your own adventure, a, b, c, or d. I mean, completely chose. I may write "a silouette crosses Mario" and if whomever handles mario decides to ignore it, there goes that, challenges to think of ways of driving the plot forward. 
      Now I'll write the lore and be the overseeing narrator (although cool to add ideas together) secondary characters, and some stuff related to the plot idea (some 2ndary characters, and maybe a bad guy I wanna have in the lore), but based on the character choice the entire plot could change. Protagonist, lead 2ndary characters, and maybe even villians, I want for someone else to make the choices.
      It'll be an ensemble cast to get multiple ideas, but once we get a good plot going, then somebody would take the role of a selected new character, etc. 
      The setting is modern day, and general plot would be the world of magic! like illusionist and magicians, (think the sorcerers apprentice movie with nic cage, or the now you see me movies)and the first set of characters would be a regular human, and their lives will change. 
      For now tho, If you wanna play along, leave:
      Name.
      Age.
      Occupation (student, worker).
      Nationality (maybe we make it an across the globe thing?)
      Any specific quirk or  detail you want your character to have? (very shy, hates bugs)
       
      To get started I'll leave you with an opening from the character I'll play, a deity type character to introduce us to this world. (I like to write in a screenplay style cause it helps differentiate the dialog)
       
       
       
      Lets see where this goes!
