Looks like Nocturne is coming out on Netflix on Sept. 28.  They've got a new poster for it, and tomorrow we should get a trailer.

I have to wonder if Netflix thinks this is going to recoup their reputation after that whole Cleopatra debacle.

Hoping that this season they avoid adding sexual themes.
I know about how the story have a mature theme and blablabla but not everything considered as "Mature" should be about it, and I hated how unfitty it can become.

Trailer's out by the way. The first season looks like an original work, maybe a prequel season before we get to events similar to Rondo and Symphony?

The description calls it an "origin story" so it's not an adaptation of a game's scenario.

Hmm. There are characters I don't recognize (obvious right?). And then there's that woman wielding the VK whip who gets killed by a vampire right in front of a young Richter. That is something that I'd have to disagree with. I know that this is nothing more then a teaser trailer and therefor information is limited, however Belmonts weren't trained to be done in by lesser vampires. They were taught to confront creatures that would break a person's spirit just from the mere sight of them (and that's not counting the mystic properties within their blood that gives them a supernatural leg up). It's why the Belmont family has endured for centuries while Dracula has failed time and time again. No doubt this was done to bring about some means of determination within Richter to confront the monster that killed his mother, but it doesn't feel necessary in this particular context. If they really wanted to make this scene convincing Richter's mother would've been ambushed by multiple high class vampires and their pets; ones that are just below Dracula's grade. Belmont's aren't invincible, I get that, however multiple vampires/monsters vs one Belmont would lend itself to be more believable then a single vampire vs Belmont.

Look at that. The series isn't out yet and I'm already taking a 'stab' at it, lol.

Yeah, I wasn't too impressed. I'll still watch a little bit to be fair, but it wasn't doing it for me. Where is Shaft, is Richter going to save Annette, or is Dracula even in it? Obviously, it's not out, but I have concerns.

The trailer should've been like an updated version of this.

Also will they do this speech?

All the nice animation in the world is not going to save it if the character's talk like Joss Whedon muppets again.

The vampire who killed Richter's mother is Olrox. It looks like they're taking notable vampires in the series and having them fill in for the role of antagonist. The female countess is Elizabeth Bathory who is this arcs main villain.

They've also seriously redone some of these other characters. The female characters who fight in the trailers are the maidens from Rondo. Annette's had her race changed like Isaac (and given a similar backstory of oppression but this time by vampires in the Carribean) and the blonde woman doing Sypha spells is Tera. No Iris, it seems. I thought they were original characters, but no.

Time for the same "CURSE OF DARKNESS IS COMING, ANY MOMENT NOW!" situation again, where everything is already showing that there is no possible way for the thing to happen, yet everyone will be strung on the hope it happens.

As for the teaser: One of the teasers ever made. I honestly have no strong feelings either way. Although I commend the honesty in this one - it's no longer trying to pretend it's gonna be anything but its own thing with its own ideas. THAT gets me interested.

Is there backing for this? I haven't kept up with this series information or anything, so I'm legit curious.

Netflix announced who is voicing what character on their website. It's easy to piece who is what character based on that.

The article also describes the characters in more depth, so yeah, we definitely know that Maria is still the same as her DXC incarnation, but Annette is now Afro-Caribbean, Tera is a magical fighter, and ofc Olrox himself is the other intimidating black dude who killed Femrichter lol.

They seem to be using the plot points from Bloodlines and Aria for this initial season of Nocturne, it appears. Which I guess is okay, except it would make any plans for either of those stories (more probable is Aria, honestly) kinda shot.

I'm less impressed that they are taking sincere liberties with the maidens from Rondo, turning both Annette and Tera into magic users suddenly as if having Maria wasn't enough. Granted, I'm all for straying away from the "damsel in distress" trope, but it seems forced here.

However that pales in comparison to them showing us Richter's mother as this badass whip-wielding female Belmont, FINALLY after we've all been wanting another shot for one, only to kill her off for the sake of injecting trauma into yet another character's story where it wasn't needed. It feels like she's just this disposable character they made up with the purpose of fridging to make poor Richter angsty....because we all loved that when that was done in S3 of the OG series.  >:(


Anyway, those are my thoughts. Animation looks solid and I'll allow some of those liberties slide if this is meant to be a prequel to Rondo's story in season 2 and the story ends up being better than I'm fearing.
