Overview: Castlevania (Season 2)
(Observe: This can be a spoiler-free evaluation of the primary six episodes of Castlevania Season 2, nevertheless, there will probably be spoilers for Season 1)
The primary season of Castlevania was a shock that I am unsure many individuals had been anticipating. It was a stable, albeit brief, four-episode season that did every little thing you’ll anticipate from a Castlevania animated sequence. There have been dozens of monsters that wanted to be killed, a Belmont, and a pissed off Dracula that needed to exterminate all human life. Nonetheless, its brief size actually hampered any enthusiasm I had for the season. Simply as issues had been began to get good, the season was over. It felt extra like a proof of idea than the rest.
Fortunately, we now have a second season that provides us eight episodes and expands the story far more than the primary season. If the primary season was all about motion and grizzly leisure, then season two is extra decided to get throughout the plot and character motivations. Sadly, this strategy signifies that the sequence by no means hits the identical excessive factors in motion as the primary, although makes up for it with a deeper examination of Dracula, his trigger, and his chosen allies.
