Looking for a thrilling anime to watch? We are glad that you are always savoring those awesome anime series, well this one is a must see!
Castlevania, where our beloved Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler well know as Dracula, meets his match. A tremendous love story engulfed with anguish, destruction of the human race, guts spilling encounters, ( wait that doesn't sound romantic at all for a love story right?), ah, who cares we are talking about the ruler of Wallachia where heads on pikes were to the order of the day.
This story also brings an amazing group together, the lovely Sypha, member of an ancient brotherhood that is in charge of keeping historical records that are passed on from generation to generation. Along with her gifted talent for the arcane arts, this young woman doesn't need to show her body parts for one to know that there is beauty behind that worn out cloak she wears.
The handsome and fearless monsters hunter Trevor Belmont, if you ladies out there like the type of guy who lives his life like he has no worries in the world, look no further that's him alright, he is rough and a heck of a fighter. But also a guy who values his family's traditions and protects the innocent, being cast out by the church and according to the story the last member of his family he finally finds a sense of companionship.
And last but not least, Alucard, none other than a vampire himself, willing to change the current situation for humanity. Even at the cost of his life perhaps, but he will try to stop Dracula's plan to extinguish the human race from the planet. Almost as strong and powerful as Dracula he will need help to defeat such a mighty enemy.
Dracula surrounded by his own army of generals finds no peace in his mind knowing that loyalty is a hard thing to obtain when we rely on others to see our goals being achieved.
This awesome series is inspired by popular video game Castlevania, Netflix has come along in such a great way for us viewers, providing us with excellent programming for our entertainment.
Personally I loved this series because as a kid I was always fascinated by story of Dracula, I think a good percentage of us are always attracted to the unknown or mysterious ways that some parts of history have been recorded, ancient civilizations, world wars, major catastrophic events like the Pompeii city buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
What I like or dislike about this particular series?
I like, no wait let me recap that, I love the medieval setting where this story develops. It is dark but not boring, it has this very interesting ancient technology that is misunderstood by the people of that particular timeline, especially if it has not the approval of the church which in reality that's how it was during that specific time in history.
The fights (oh men) I really enjoyed the crude and gruesome ways to dispatch those poor bastards, ( I am not a violent person perse, but with a drink in hand and crunching chips in my mouth is all forgiven). Now what I don't like about the series, is the long wait for the third season, which is obviously being brewed somewhere. Yes, I know we do suffer when we anime lovers find a really cool production, we enjoyed it, we make time to watch it and then bam, no more, we are what?
Be patience, yes believe or not is a virtue, there will be a third season, I least I hope so but for now be nice, be cool, and keep on watching what you enjoy.
