What part of this screams $175? Are people really that excited over game cases?

That's pretty much the same way I feel about this.

Once again I have to give credit to the art which was fantastic this season. Unfortunately the same can't be said of the dialogue and story... is it too much to ask for writing that doesn't sound like an edgy rendition of mahvel movies?

I do definitely hope they do more. I'm not expecting a whole animated franchise out of this or anything, but overall, I was pleased enough with the whole thing that I would be curious enough to want more at some point. Taking the story up a hundred or two hundred years later.

Me am feel the same way. Me am happy Castlevania is being talked about again. Aside from Simon & Richtopher inclusions in The Smash Brothers & like a couple random digital releases, the series hasn’t had any real attention whatsoever.

For all it’s flaws at least they didn’t turn Trevor into Alucard & make Dracula a Belmont..........

I definitely enjoyed it more than Season 3 myself.

I hold by my ideas that this sort of thing would be way better served as a movie, or fewer, but longer, episodes, like an OVA.

As someone who liked Lords of Shadow, my take is always that it's interesting to see where they go with the source material.

Super super spoilery thoughts ahead:

Overall, better than Season 3, way better- In fact, You could say it feels like 3 and 4 should've been one long season, with some of the inbetween cut out.

Hopefully slightly smoother animation when we get there.

So, is this last season worth the watch? I skipped season 3 after I heard all the things in it. You do you but please Castlevania is a story about fighting monsters in a giant castle.

As Alucard says, "It's been a strange ride. I'm happy it's over." I definitely did not hate all of this adaptation; I'd watch it again in fact.
I agree. It was fun. But not the kind of fun I'll want to revisit in some time.

Kyatto Ninden Teyandee. Loved watching Samurai Pizza Cats as a kid so I wanted to see its origins. Kinda frustrating when you can tell the subtitlers didn't translate the puns. I know it's kinda tough to do, but if Welcome to Lodoss Island can do it, so can this.

The

was the best moment of this season, and almost made up for all the source material deviations I disliked starting Season 2. For a few minutes, everything truly felt like Castlevania. And although I knew this was the final season, I still hoped we'd get an ending that moved everything closer to the status quo of the games i.e. setting up the Belmonts' eternal war with Dracula. Because that's what Castlevania is all about, right?

As Alucard says, "It's been a strange ride. I'm happy it's over." I definitely did not hate all of this adaptation; I'd watch it again in fact. But I'd stop at the end of Season 1 and just imagine that everything afterward follows the games we know and love.

Now if you'll excuse me, imma get off this soapbox and go back to pining for new games.  :'(
