    well DaNasty could be equivalent to how some surnames are designed, like McBride and MacMurchadha. I'm sure back in the 80's, the Japanese creators of CVIII didn't even know what "Da Nasty" referred to in america. and there was no internet social media back then.

    Yeah after watching it again with my gal really the only actual "bad" voice acting is the main priest dude. Fuck he was unbearable. Like half the time I couldn't hear or understand wtf he was saying. I hope whoever did his voice never works again.

    why people gotta ostracize a particular VA? they were all great and convincing in their personality and tone. plus naturally not everyone speaks in a way that people can hear/understand. I know people my folks don't understand, but people accustomed to various english dialect, tone and style of speech, can still understand what they're saying.

    thinking someone's career should be over just because they dont like their VA delivery, is just plain heartless, what if you knew the person and actually like them as a person and are a friend or good natured well to do aquaintance? you'd still want doom and gloom upon them?

    Yes bitch, I want that fuccnigga to starve to death for making me suffer through that bullshit. It would be even better if I could sit and watch him decay as I was hand fed peeled grapes.

    But no seriously that dude was booty and everyone else was decent to great. The lame generic screams were off putting and as I said some of the audio sounded strange but it was a good effort overall on that front.

    yeah grant should be in the show, why all these people hating on affinity. what a bunch of sheep. the belmont guy was an annoying whiny emo character not unlike the new darth vader wannabe loser in force awakens.

    best part of show was dracula fucking shit up and the shitty priest getting rekt. the chick was hot too. 7/10 will watch season 2, hope they add grant and make trevor not so fucking emo alcoholic

    It's funny because ain't none of the fuckers gave a shit about the abomination that was Grant's design in Castlevania Judgment.

    Also Trevor is not emo, he just didn't want to be bothered. He just want to drown his sorrows in alcohol like a proper man would

    I loved the show. It's amazing to me that WArren Ellis+Netflix could do such a great job on Castlevania when it seems apparent that Konami doesn't give a shit anymore. I thought everything was well done, and they had a lot of ground to cover in a mere 4 episodes and did it well. Dracula is one of my favorite characters in the show and I like that he's presented as a tragic villain which is kind of how he is in Coppola's movie, but not always so much in the CV series other than Lords Of Shadow (which, the 1st game is fantastic and is totally Castlevania, the people saying it's not probably didn't play the 64 games and are objectively wrong, but that's a whole other thread.) It gives his character a lot of dimension rather than him just being straight up evil for no reason.

    As for character selection, Grant was actually the character I used most in CV3 other than Trevor, but I agree that he's probably the most expendable character of the cast of that game. I always thought he was a thief though, not a pirate. Maybe he got caught poking around Dracula's castle and that's why he got turned into a monster? Either way, it would be cool to see him in there, but if he isn't, I don't think much will be lost. Although in his CV3 ending he becomes a leader of the people against the hordes of Dracula, so maybe he will show.

    Either way, the first 4 episodes were great and I can't wait to see what Ellis/Netflix (who I'm really happy is taking this project on!) have for season 2.

    Castlevania Judgment is shit and the worse shit in the entire series (well ok maybe the LoS games are worse because they tried to reboot and shit on the original lore, mercury steam are money leeching opportunist trash),
    it ruined the character designs of a lot of legendary characters.

    even Shanoa's artist (Masaki Hirooka) HATES the artist of Castlevania Judgment (Takeshi Obata), and that piece of shit bastard knew Masaki and made Shanoa look worse on purpose.
    they literally have personal hate between each other.

    so it doesnt matter who was in that game, that game was one of the worst games ever with the most trolling character designs to make the fans upset.
    it was an even bigger insult than DmC overall. Obata was like Konami's pet troll that sabotaged CVJ's character designs on purpose. Konami can troll harder than even Capcom.

    My only real issue with the show was Trevor didn't seem to care about what was going on, despite the fact that the Belmonts had sworn to fight Dracula and creatures of the night. It seemed strange that he didn't really give a shit until later. Maybe they decided not to include the canon of Lament of Innocence, but even that is strange since it seems like they want to stick fairly close to the canon of the series. I know even Iga had a hand in the script as the series developed over the years, but how much influence he had, I don't know.

    Either way, I enjoyed the series. Hype for season two!

    It seemed clear to me that Trevor took the excommunication of his family hard and the way the people treat him had him throwng his hands up and saying "fuck it. Ya'lls problem now." Hence the lack of caring in the beginning. He didn't start to care until there where people involved for him to care about, the Seekers who continue to care till the bitter end.

    Yeah I get that. It was just strange to me to go that route in the first place.

    Warren Ellis.

    He's quite critical of government and authority in his works and in this case, that authority is the Church.

    This also has the secondary effect of giving Trevor a more personal character arc.

    What they need to do is make up their fucking minds. Episode 1 and 2 were a drag. Episode 3 was alright and 4 was the only one I can say I truly enjoyed. Clearly they can animate, clearly they're not good at pacing nor making a very good story either. I wish they would just speed that shit up and give us 4 episodes or near non-stop flight scenes like Trevor vs alucard.

    Also fuck the speakers and their B class voice acting of forced spanish accents. I cringed every time they said anything.

    I wanna see them fight classic enemies and bosses while metal remixes of classic themes play.

    I'd rather have dumb, good looking action than a slow, mediocre story with abysmal voice acting and a sprinkle of good action.

    Show was originally written as a direct to DVD movie. Everything makes more sense when you watch it as one whole thing instead of multiple episodes.
