Review of "Castlevania" 7/15/17 by
Season One Airs now on Netflix
Loosely based on a video game, this is a really great
animated TV series. Normally, I don't watch any animated TV
shows, unless they're about superheroes (or if they're
really funny, like Family Guy). However, this one is just
fantastic. It's like reading a really good comic book. There
are many outstanding actors voicing the characters, too.
A woman goes to visit Dracula in his castle to learn
about healing. They fall in love, but then she's burned at
the stake by the village of Wallachia for being a witch.
Dracula takes his revenge on the village, and a vampire
hunter tries to stop him.
You should definitely watch this one, especially if you
like shows that are about fantasy or the supernatural. It's
just very well done in every way. The art is amazing, and
the story is top notch. I can't wait for season two!
