Lords of Shadow did it… Then it said “Have at you!!” and swung its combat cross a few more times, to make its stance known by all..

And Konami paid for this blunder of a reboot. In some cases, literally (cash).

I never realized Castlevania has it's own "Should Moon or Venus kill Beryl"

i'm really worrying about steam version since iX2, when it was still at its day one, just f******g despised everybody in every region for its questionable pricing. I really don't want the same history happen twice in a row... Damn

BUT if you're going to change so much that the source material is barely recognizable, what is even the point of calling it "Castlevania" anymore? There's a pretty big gap between "it doesn't have to be exactly like the games" versus "it's an adaptation so it can do anything". They should've just created an original IP instead, in my opinion.

I tried through the website above but it was taking too long and the quota ran out on me not even a quarter of the way through. Believe me, I'd really like to see this and the effort of what you guys have done. Is there a way to download the video?
Oh, sorry, totally forgot about the quota thing with Mega. Try this one.

Seems unnecessary. It's an adaptation. It's allowed to take liberties. You didn't like it. That's fine. But saying broad generalizations like, "everyone knows it sucked." It was it's own thing. It was watchable. Like it or don't but maybe tone down your vitriol, dude.
People are free to like whatever they want, and if my choice of words was rude, I apologize. I mean, I understand that adapting a story to another form of media has its quirks, and sometimes you have to change some things around, BUT if you're going to change so much that the source material is barely recognizable, what is even the point of calling it "Castlevania" anymore?

Unfortunately, no (while Alucard fights Dracula, Trevor is busy
(click to show/hide)
, and I don't think there's enough footage to edit it so it would work), but I wholeheartedly agree! CV3 is supposed to be the story of Trevor Belmont first and foremost, and Alucard stealing Trevor's thunder felt strange, if not outrageous.

Also agreed with the rest. With seasons 3 & 4 they were simply milking it after the success of the first two seasons (and even Ellis himself said in one of the interviews how he "had no clue what to do next"). I personally liked the addition of Hector and Isaac's characters into the canon and their chemistry in CoD (and I like CoD as a game a lot), but seeing what have they done to them in the show was sickening, to say the least. Complete butchering of their characters.

Have you also fixed the sections so that Trevor Belmont is the one to actually kill Dracula and not Alucard? That felt like a cop out to me as historically (story/gamewise) Trevor was the one who delivered the fatal blow with the help of the others. Warren Ellis should've realized that this is CV3 and not SotN.

I also felt that the third and fourth seasons were completely unnecessary. And -let's be honest- a horrid mess of armature writing. It sounded like they were doing the CoD game and took it into a completely different direction. They made Hector look bad and be presented as a sexual pushover/slave. It should've been left out completely as the game itself was a shoehorned entry into the series and really didn't add anything overall to CV 3. Also, why would Dracula need to rely on Devil forge masters when he alone has the power to overrun the whole of the Earth with his monster army? It just makes no sense to me.

Hey everyone! Here's something my boy GP Belmondo was working on (and I was helping him with lots of stuff).

As you might know, Netflixvania sucked as an adaptation of Castlevanaia 3 and left a lot to be desired. "Thanks" to Warren Ellis and his inflated ego preventing him from doing proper research of the source material and respecting the property, the opportunity of making a good and faithful adaptation went right down into the toilet. It pissed us off how at the same time it has so much wasted potential with talented animators and voice actors on board, and with some scenes being actually good if presented right. But what pissed us off even more, is how the majority was praising it like the second coming of Christ, while in reality it's just another terrible Netflix adaptation from the pile, and it didn't deserve the praise it was getting.

This cut is an attempt at making something worthy of a Castlevania title out of the animated series, taking the direction of the old "animated movie trilogy" format - the end result is a 4 hour film divided into 3 chapters. This cut is meant to be considered as a critique towards the animated series, a big "let me show you how it's done".

Swearing, vulgarity, pointless banter, cringy humour, unneeded excessive violence, unfitting characters, "GoT with vampires" and such have been cut, as these have no place or don't fit the tone of Castlevania. Most of the scenes are re-edited to make the flow feel more adventurous, dynamic and make sense in general. There are some bloopers, but we had to work with what we have.
