The following is an excerpt of a blog article.  Read Full Article

Looking for something new to watch this weekend? Break out of your show rut with the Castlevania animated series which is now available on Netflix. The show follows Trevor Belmont, vampire hunter and last of the Belmont clan, in his quest to rid the world of the evil Dracula and his beastly minions. The first season is a quick jaunt of 4, 23 minute episodes so you can get through it in a couple of hours. But Netflix has confirmed that a second season will happen and it will contain 8 episodes.

and kill them all before I kick the bucket."

I watched the first three episodes last night and will likely finish up season 1 (since it's only one more episode) tonight.

Overall it's pretty good, with a definite lean toward the adult market. Trying not to have spoilers, but it suffers from trying to condense the story into 4 episodes (a primary character has a pretty absurdly fast change of heart for instance) and they made the mistake of having the antagonist be a little too easy to sympathize with.

@skarekrow13 would you want to write a condensed review of it?

Sure. How condensed do you want it? Also, gist of the narrative or a few spoilers?

I'd say make it a bit shorter than a typical review. You're really just evaluating story and setting, visual and audio. Narrative gist is good, but I would avoid any heavy spoilers such as plot twists or reveals.
