How do you feel about when Castlevania abandoned all of its remaining pretensions of being gothic horror (Soma was kinda straddling the border but he still had some of those classical elements) and turned itself into a full-blown shounen anime cartoon by introducing Jonathan and Charlotte?

It didn't abandon the gothic horror genre, Order of Ecclesia made that very clear. PoR was made in an effort to draw in a younger crowd, but despite that, it still maintained its clear gothic horror elements. That said, I missed Kojima's art style, to be sure, and I think neither Jonathan, nor Charlotte, nor Brauner are amazing characters. Good, but not amazing. I think PoR the weakest of the three DS games, but it's still very, very good.

Well, I mean, we don't *have* to discuss this subject with any seriousness. I just assumed you wanted to.  ;)

In terms of the look of the series, the horror/Gothic theme has always been there. Even during the classic series. I think it's more 'n less an issue with the writing that demonstrates whether or not CV loses its horror/Gothic theme from time to time.

I'm ready to accept any manga-styled Castlevania like Portrait of Ruin and much worse, as long as it stays away from Judgment. The former didn't burn my eyes 1% of what the latter did.
