Netflix Announces New Castlevania Animation

Alucard-Wine-by-Grandialee

Netflix has continued on their spree of bastardizing beloved franchises with their announcement that a new Castlevania animation is on the way, with the money-hungry company apparently not satisfied with merely butchering Japanese anime…

While Netflix previously teased that an animation based on Castlevania III may have been in the works, they have now officially confirmed that one is definitely on the way courtesy of “Frederator”, the studio responsible for a multitude of western shows such as “Adventure Time”, “Bravest Warriors” and “Fairly OddParents”.

A description of the series has already been provided:

“Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself.”

Adi Shankhar, the show’s producer, previously mentioned that he intends to make the animated series immensely violent:

“I’m producing a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde. It’s going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.”

Naturally many have doubts about the man’s claims, considering how frequent such ambitions emerge amongst aspiring producers and how even more frequently such ambitions are snuffed out.

Episodes will run for about 30 minutes and the series is slated to run sometime this year – and despite the show having not even debuted yet, a 2nd season is apparently already on the way…

    Well, it's not like Konami (#fuckonami) was doing anything good with the license, so...

    Ok Fred Seibert is awesome and Netflix grants a lot of creative freedom. I expect good things. When they mean flip the vampire sub genre on its head, they're referring to the old style of vampire depiction, not the beautified versions that have risen lately in anime and twilight.

    This should be interesting.

    the shows producer Adi Shankhar is also that guy that did that short power rangers reboot video that went viral a couple years ago that everyone seemed to love.

    i think at the very least, this castlevania animation will be okay.

    I'm just glad it's an animation, when I first heard about it I thought it was going to be live action which sounded horrible.

    But the plan sounds pretty good, bloody and most likely going back to the classics. I'm moderetely hyped now.

    More worried about the satirical part. While some enemies were a bit silly and it went full anime in the later gba/ds games. I hope they do not try to make it a comedy or something stupid.

    If it's written by Warren Ellis, then it might be really good. The guy's a damn good writer when he wants to. The guy made Nextwave and that was an awesome comic series.

    Castlevania written by Warren Ellis?
    Anyone remember the GI Joe: Resolute cartoon that Ellis wrote? I believe Rob Bricken described it as “G.I. Joe: Resolute is like Warren Ellis made tender, passionate love to our childhoods, and he had an enormous dick.”
