‘Castlevania’ Shows No Mercy In A Preview For Its Final Season
by Tito W. James
Castlevania has been a breakout success for Netflix, proving that there’s an audience for narratively sophisticated animation with complex adult themes. Against all odds, the show proved that Americans can make great quality anime, rich stories based off of video games are possible, and the vampire genre can be taken seriously.
The long war between humanity and the supernatural is finally coming to a close. Thanks to the nuanced writing, it’s unclear who is more monstrous — the humans or the vampires. Powerhouse Animation Studios and Producer Adi Shankar have done right by their inspirations of Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D. The creative team behind Castlevania will be reuniting to do their reinterpretation of the Ramayana in Heaven’s Forest and I cannot wait for that.
Castlevania‘s final season will premiere May 13th on Netflix.
