Since we've been good, we're getting a peak of Maria for Christmas.

Looks rather serious, which might fit the tone of the show better. I do hope they're not "too" serious and above using Maria for a little comic relief every now and then though.

I think that's straight-up her Ayami Kojima design from the PSP remake, much like Richter, so at the very least I'm glad that this Netflixvania is staying very close to the source material so far.

Am I the only one who notices how specifically tied to the Playstation titles it is? Not just in the looks, but it has really heavily leaned into things from Symphony of the Night, Lament of Innocence, Curse of Darkness, and now Dracula X Chronicles. Not a complaint of any kind, just an interesting observation.

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.

The original Netflix run had IGA as a consulting producer, at least during the early seasons. Keeping things tied to the IGA era makes sense from an artistic standpoint. Plus, it's the most beloved era of the game for, arguably, most fans.

I just had a possibly booze-induced daymare where Maria looked right at the screen and said
(click to show/hide)
I pray the last of such unneeded pottymouth departed with Ellis.

Either get rid of it or lean real heavily into it, Panty & Stocking dub style.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.
