Title: Here's our first look Castlevania: Nocturne
Post by: MasterAlucard on June 10, 2022, 10:50:24 AM
Here's Richter!

He's looking very...different. I'm not a big fan of the Netflix adaptation, but lets hope for the best.

What's your take on this?

Looking good, i enjoyed the first series, i think I'm down for this one too. I'm just a bit more jealous of Richter cause he's kind of my favorite Belmont so I hope they don't take too many liberties with the character, but i'm hoping for the best. Hope it comes out soon

Richiter is looking accurate. Hopefully we’ll have a better script this time around & the voice actors put some tempo in their voices (Trevor & Alucard sounded like they were always whispering)

Ah yes I can't wait for my dose of homoerotic sex scenes, cringe jokes and pseudo-political subversion

After the first series, my excitement is inversely proportional to Warren Ellis' involvement. Still gonna watch this though.

Hopefully, it's good. I did not care for the other series. Is it a new team?

Faithful to the source material, good accurate character designs and straight forward story with decent side stories relevant the Castlevnia name and era. Are we finally gonna get a a good adaptation friends?
I highly doubt it but Richter looks good so I say it's a good start although his missing the bandana.

I'll just wait for your reviews before I decide to watch or not.

I call it here now, seeing the trailer again and listening to the voice lines they included to me it looks like our boy isn't doing very well. So here's my guess: they are gonna mashup Rondo and Sotn, and Richter is embarking on a quest to .. resurrect Dracula and prove himself worthy of whatever (Annette's love, the Belmont name). God i sure do hope I'm wrong

Lol. Didn't they fire Warren Ellis?

Anyways. Jumping from CV3 to Richter-era and passing over the most iconic Belmont in the process ain't it. But I guess they gotta keep that Alucard crutch always within arms reach.

And yeah, something looks weird about Richter's face. But he looks way more accurate than they guy they called Trevor from the last one.

Still haven't watched season 3 and if this comes out around the same time as Game of Thrones house of Targaryen I'll likely be passing on it.

Maybe it's for the best though that they don't touch Simon. Maybe one day we can get a live action and better CV adaption for him. He deserves his story and his curse to be told in detail.

I think the truth is this show is only partially for the legacy CV fans and more just for the Netflix anime crowd. I often run into people who love this show and most the time they've never played the game. 🤷

The laugh at the end is giving me Castlevania: Dracula X password vibes.  Must be Dracula, but it's odd that I can't be sure if he's even in this show.  Love the logo animation at the end also.

Can't wait for more OC like trashbrand to waste time.

Maybe he's going to Whitby to pick a fight with him. God I hope we're both wrong.

First look?? Barely even consider this a teaser, but not loving the Spike-Esque hybrid design

Hopefully there won't be a stupid cop out like Alucard killing Dracula instead of Trevor. In Rondo Alucard was still asleep so they have to have Richter end Dracula at least for that segment of the show.

This is one of the few reasons I never watched the previous Netflix series. All in bad taste and Homo eroticism has since become one of the political calling cards of the WOKE movement  :P

No thanks.

To answer a few questions:

- Warren Ellis is not the writer. A British writer has taken over for him.
- Adi Shankar is not involved with this sequel series; seems like he lost his lawsuit to be involved in anything beyond the original series
- This is going to cover Rondo and SotN, according to the Netflix social media, so expect Alucard in some way or another
- Richter is looking like he's meant to look like a mash-up between Trevor and Sypha's designs
- It's set during the French Revolution, which is congruent with Rondo's timeline, though we have no idea if it plays a geopolitical part in the series

Makes me wonder if Shaft will be more of the bad guy focus this time?

I am optimistic because of the new writer. I have no idea what to expect from whoever takes over, but I'm excited to find out.

Well it's based from Ayami Kojima's design from Dracula X Chronicles where Richter doesn't have a bandanna, Same as Trevor.

The first and the second point are a huge plus to the new show lmao, these guys are idiots one is a hypocrite pc writer and the other is a fanfic hack.
As for the designs I thought it looks like a mix between Trevor and Leon but it does look like Sypha and that's because of the art style it's kinda repetitive as most characters looks like color swaps.

I think it looks great! Looking forward to more CV on television, we are really lucky to be getting this. Hopefully there will be a new game coming in the near future, this animated series has introduced Castlevania to so many new people. I appreciate it very much! I would love a series with Soma later.

I think if this series is successful, its almost guaranteed the next spinoff will be with Soma. It would just make so much sense.

I think it looks okay, but the look of the show was probably the bit I had the least amount of issues with. It's all about the writing.

No Warren Ellis means no comic book writing packed to the gills with random profanity, but I'm not familiar with the work of the new writer to determine if he grasps the series and its tone. If it sounds like The Witcher with vampires again, it's another take that misses pretty strongly when it goes in that direction hard.

Definitely going to take a wait and see approach after fully watching the previous series.   

I wasn’t a huge fan with some of the liberties taken but having a new writer makes me cautiously optimistic for how this can turn out. I’m a bit weary though, if this ends up being a continuation of the previous storyline considering where it ended.

Can't wait for more GoT with vampires, tasteless edgy swearing and unfunny jokes, pointless character race swaps, political agendas, boring fillers, one-dimensional original characters with no weight on the story, terrible audio mastering and generic soundtrack, sloppy animation, and overall misunderstanding and rape of the source material.

Call me a pessimist, but even without Ellis, I have no hope of it being any good. The first 4 seasons, where everything that could go wrong went wrong, left such a bad taste in my mouth, nothing related to this shitshow can make me feel excited. I still consider Netflixvania to be the worst thing that happened to the franchise (yes, even EROTIC VIOLENCE pachislot had more class and felt like Castlevania). And people call it the best video game adaptation, jeez.

They didn't care to even write the correct game names in the description: "Symphony of Night and Blood of Rondo"? Come on!
I'll give it a watch, but no way in hell I'm giving Netflix any money for this.

I want to hope. I really do. But Netflix isn't exactly a house of great repute when it comes to producing quality adaptations, and I've been hurt so much and so often by them (multiple times with this brand alone!). At this point my patience with Netflix has worn raw, and I doubt anything they promised would get me hyped because I've heard many such promises before. I want to hope and hype, but I'm simply too tired to make the attempt anymore.

I'll give this one a chance. I was at least entertained by the previous seasons, despite all of the flaws. I mean, it felt like it had as much to do with the already-established Castlevania lore as Lords of Shadow did, but I didn't hate it, I guess. I just didn't know Warren Ellis was that much of an edgelord. Some of his comic stuff I've read in the past, like The Authority and his run on Moon Knight, weren't really like that. And I really liked The Authority.
