News & Interviews for Castlevania: Season 1
It never quite reaches the demented highs of its pillar-of-hellfire pilot, but by season's end, there's a clear mission statement for arriving at a slightly more optimistic future.
[F]our episodes are hardly enough for the first season of Castlevania and that's our only real complaint.
Far from a flawless production, but it's entertaining, competently made and satisfying in most all the ways it needed to be. I can't wait to see more.
The story of Castlevania is told very slowly. It's not just a slow burn, but an easing into the world, its characters and the amazing story that unfolds.
All these missing elements, combined with its vague and generic low fantasy setting makes one wonder if it was even necessary to use the Castlevania license when it could pass off as something entirely different.
Castlevania's first season feels like it's pitched between two dissonant tones: goofy bloody gothic nonsense, and boring self-serious story of good vs. evil.
When it was announced that Netflix was cracking the bullwhip on a Castlevania animated series written by gawd scribe Warren Ellis, you know the nerd streets was talking.
The show had a lot more humor than I thought, dark humor...Castlevania was great, for what it is.
Netflix's Castlevania performed magic by hitting my childhood nostalgia while offering my adult self something substantial and exciting.
Video game adaptations can be iffy, but Castlevania is a more nuanced take. It feels like it's just waking up.
Audience Reviews for Castlevania: Season 1
5d agoSeason 1 only had 4 episodes, and it served as a set up for the main journey. It's pretty entertaining with a lot of deaths and monsters, and the actions were good. Overall, a decent and neat set up. 7/10

Jun 02, 2021Very good! The movie is simply sensational, great script.
May 31, 2021The beginning of the story was awesome
May 20, 2021Season 1 of Castlevania is atmospheric, artistic and mostly quite intelligent. The characters, Dracula in particular, are well developed and their motivations are both clear and understandable, and while the animation itself isn't top-tier, the action sequences are well designed and are functional. The only serious problem this first Season has is that it does not tell a Story -- it sets up the key players and establishing events from which to start the Story, but more than anything, this shouldn't be considered "Castlevania: Season 1", but rather "Castlevania: Prologue" (with Seasons 2-4 being Acts I-III). However, the purpose of a Setup Story like this is to get the audience enthusiastic about the following chapter, and by and large it's successful in this regard; I wouldn't quite say it was successful enough to sustain over a full year to continue (I actually didn't continue until almost a year after S2 was even released..), but if you were to sit someone down, show them Season 1 on Netflix or BluRay, and then asked if they'd like to continue, chances are they'd say "Yes!"
May 20, 2021This animation is perfect, it has action, drama, sarcastic humor, complex characters, and some cute friendship and romance. So, I recommend this to everyone <3.
May 19, 2021Absolutely beautiful
May 17, 2021A stunning and engage start to a longer and wider story. Though only 4 episodes long there is substantial world building, lore, character establishment, drama and action. The foundations are set for a solid show. Looking forward to season 2.
Apr 30, 2021The beginning was slow, but WOW did it ramp up in intensity towards the end.
Mar 24, 2021I just love the first season so much for the Dracula Arc! So tragic and beautiful. Watch it!
