Castlevania (Netflix) Warren Ellis

Netflix has announced that it has greenlit an original animated series based on Konami's Castlevania.

The animated series is being developed by Adventure Time producer Fred Seibert's Frederator Studios, with writing from Warren Ellis, the comic book author behind Transmetropolitan, The Authority, Netwave, and Iron Man: Extremis. Castlevania will be produced by Adi Shankar, the guy behind the Punisher: Dirty Laundry and the Power/Rangers fanfilms that everyone loved for being grimdark, alongside Ellis, Seibert, and Kevin Kolde.

The folks behind Castlevania have already blocked out two seasons, one in 2017 and a second in 2018.

"Castlevania is a Netflix Original Series with Season 1 launching in 2017 and Season 2 in 2018. Furthermore, I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the western world's first good video game adaptation," said Shankar.

The series will seemingly star a new Belmont, instead of the one of the existing versions.

"Inspired by the classic video game series, 'Castlevania' is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself," reads Netflix' synopsis.

**** yes. Game of Thrones style. I loved the Lords of Shadow game. I have high hopes and want a Legend of Zelda series down the road.

Either it will be awful or it will be awesome, there will be no in between with this. Hopefully it turns out well. Though I do find it a very odd choice since the show will no doubt be incredibly expensive to make and it's a bit of a gamble for something based on a game, but hopefully it pays off.

Looks awesome. The fact that this is written by Warren Ellis, gives me great faith that it will be.

What the ****? A mere 4 episodes?!

Damn thing ends when it's basically just beginning to start. Pretty good other than that though. I loved the animation.

Exposition is a little clunky at times but I liked it Trevor was funny and a good character. Way too short though! Great soundtrack as well

Ha, came as a surprise to me as well! They could easily have made a 90 minute movie, but I suppose they wanted to gain some experience with the episodic format. Anyway, 7/10. I am an anime fan and I think they missed a few tricks they could have used to make the action more exciting to watch, and the voice actors need some more experience. But the writing was solid with a decent plot and characters interesting enough to make me want to see more.
