    Default Castlevania Mini-Series

    http://mynintendonews.com/2015/08/27...ime-is-coming/


    There is apparently a Castlevania anime being made by Frederator (Adventure Time, Fairly OddParents) It will feature Dracula's son Alucard and it's said to be very very violent.

    Why not just add another Vampire Hunter D story?
    I recommend: Peerless Martial God, Renegade Immortal, Gourmet of Another World, Trash of the Counts Family and The Great Ruler

    So it would have that Nickelodeon feeling like every other Frederator cartoon?

    I like Adventure Time but I dont think that style would suit a Castlevania.

    When an anime is made in outside Japan does it count as anime?

    anime isn't necessarily bound to japan. I've always seen it as a style of animation

    Welllllll I mean you could technically make the argument then that Airbender and Korra were both "anime" then as well as some other things that have an anime influence like Code Lyoko, but they definitely fit the bill as western animation.

    Given how Lords Of Shadow 2 fucked everything up it's a given.

    Animation for adults? What a novel concept.

    Also, though obviously horror-movie inspired, I've never associated the games themselves with horror or gore. I mean, I know Bloodlines had a blood fountain, but the series hasn't exactly been God of War meets Silent Hill.

    I've only played one GBA Castlevania game, so I'm not very familiar with the game lore, but that does look cool.

    This lore is almost exclusively from Castlevania 3, one of the Nes later ones (I think) anything else is character background or flavor, so it isn't indispensable.

    The weird part is Dracula using vampire generals instead of the usual menagerie of monsters.

    They're probably using vampire generals because I think they want to address Dracula's years because they want to address Dracula's past. It looks like some of the vampires are warriors who knew Dracula before he became a vampire. Possible soldiers who were allies with Dracula during his years in the Crusades (or whatever holy war they're going to use/make up to emphasize his hatred of God).

    There is still no Grant....

    If he's coming back, I didn't imagine he was going to be shown in the trailers. He could be the black guy, though.

    Official Castlevania Twitter just confirmed that Hector will be in the new season.

    https://twitter.com/Castlevania/stat...72865982263296

    For those who do not know, Hector is the main character of Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, a game that is meant to take place directly after the events of Castlevania 3 (the game the current show is based on).

    Hector is one of Dracula's generals, and he has the power of a summoner which allows him to summon demons to fight. He served Dracula for a time, but after so much killing, he called it quits after he felt too much was too much and ultimately betrays him. I'm curious if they will follow that plot as well.

    Granted, I don't think Hector will join the Dracula slaying crusade (as he doesn't in the original canon), but the story of his defection might take place.

    So I guess Alucard has an old uncle to side with him, maybe.

    Hector confirmed but no mention of Grant?

    I'm loving Richard Armitage's voice as Trevor.
