There were some really nice bits to it, but it felt like it fell short at times.  The little girl hanging round Dante was annoying as hell. 

It should be interesting though to see in what ways the universes connect - I’m guessing possibly a hell one?

On the plus side, two months along the line, I’m finally able to walk short distances without a walking stick if I’m not carrying anything, and finally given the ok to drive again if I’m careful.

I hope it will get easier, I feel very sorry, as it sounds really rough :-[, really I'm sorry. hope you'r feel better today as well.  :)

Looks like Devil May Cry will be Adi’s next series.  He says it’ll be in a multi-verse as Castlevania.  I’d guess not the same world, but a crossover of some kind might be possible.  Maybe have a character from one series go to the other universe, or maybe just make the a character or element exist in both universes.  Or maybe it’s just a thematic, artistic, or production link.

Honestly, I'm just hoping it's not Tameem May Cry all over again. My judgment's gonna focus mainly on how they handle Dante's personality in the adaptation.

Considering all this talk about DMC, I really hope that Adi gets Ruben Langdon to reprise his role as Dante, seeing as he is Dante (vocally and for motion capture) for all intents and purposes.

>dmc and cv in one universe

assuming source lore remains relatively intact, this has the potential to be an absolutely terrible idea if done poorly

hope he doesn't fuck it up

Considering that one's a Capcom IP while the other's a Konami IP, I doubt he literally meant their lore will be crossing over with each other unless they've been in talks beforehand.

i mean the sparda stuff went down 1000 years before lament's time, so THAT part works

but mundus poses a problem considering he's actively demon emperor during drac's 900 years

but ¯\_ :rollseyes: _/¯ who knows about IP talks though

Well, they gotta get all the fans of the CV series to cross over and check it out somehow right?

I've never played DMC so I don't really care about it.

This makes more sense to me as a marketing strategy than it does a sensible narrative.

Unless perhaps it's a shared aesthetic and not a literal character cross over situation.

I would prefer all that energy and focus to stay fixed on CV.

But it's all good. Like I said I'm not a DMC fan so I'll likely pass on it anyways.

There are so many shows I need to watch that I've barely seen...

I still need to finish season 2. 😬

Well, the week of mainly bed rest that I had last week did wonders.  I drove today at last!  Two months after surgery, wooohooo!  I treated my friends who’ve been helping me out to pizza as a thank you, as they came with me in case I found it was too soon to drive, and too painful to be able to drive.  But hey, I’m seeing this as a few months of discomfort and inconvenience vs the decades of pain that I’ve been in, because my old GO wouldn’t investigate the source of the pain.

As for the DMC shared multiverse, I likewise hope that it’s not too much of a crossover tbh.  A shared look and aesthetic and tone I wouldn’t be against.  If they go for the same kind of animation style as Castlevania I’d be really quite happy with that.  Seeing as personally I’ve really liked what they’ve done with Castlevania, I have faith in them for Devil May Cry.  I’ve got the first three games, I just suck at them.  But I love the universe.

Probably just a production link, I doubt they would do a serious crossover. If this really gets going, what the production team needs to do is go in the exact opposite direction of what Castlevania did. Castlevania can actually work with a more complex plot and grimmer tone due to the subject matter (Gothic Horror and whatnot) and the fact that the Belmonts and Dracula are engaged in a feud spanning nearly 1000 years and Dracula himself is a very complex, and even at times tragic figure.

For DMC, they need to make it as absurd as possible. The thing about DMC is that it's almost a preemptive satire of the "dark and grim' video game setting that's become all the rage nowadays ever since stuff like Dark Souls took off. The DMC setting, at face value, should be a grim, dark, serious setting with stuff like demons, invading armies of hell, dark magic, secret underworlds, that sort of stuff. But Dante changes EVERYTHING. Bosses speak in operatic manners all the time, giving these grandiose speeches and challenges with Dante responding via smartass remarks and with devil may care attitude. He makes the tone shift from "this is very serious and horrifying" to "this hilarious and freaking awesome!" That's part of the reason why the attempted reboot failed (aside from bad writing, bad storytelling, irritating characters, gutless commentary, and amateur game design); it tried to make a straight version of what DMC was making fun of. That's so stupid.

Also, keep in mind we have a DMC thread here:

Maybe the two shows will be tied together with only little easter eggs that don’t really mean anything.

Guys, if anyone had followed this guys work at all you would know that literally every fan product this guy has made is part of his "bootleg multiverse."  So a cross over between Castlevania and Devil May Cry is about as likely as a crossover with Dredd, or Power Rangers.
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13104670/1/Castlevania-Birth-of-the-Dragon

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.
