Here's a pretty interesting article about the Kickstarter concept:

Castlevania: Legacy of Sorrow: An original scenario project

Freedom is the one thing you cannot impose.

I also think (actually I thought that about the secret backer-only boss) that one boss will be IGA as Dracula!

The things that disappoint me in this game are:
-it is not Dracula`s castle..nor a game about Dracula, which is one of the main things that attracted me to Castlevanias. IGA could have used Dracula, he is free to use as a character
-I dont like the 2.5D aspect of the game. I wish it was a 2D game..
-Ayami Kojima is missing!

1. it doesn't need to be Dracula's castle to be awesome and just as great or greater than a Dracula's castle.
look at games like Devil May Cry 1, one of the greatest castle designs outside of a Castlevania. it even gets darker
upon revisiting it.  and Castle Zvahl in FFXI.

2.  2.5d has its advantages.  series that were normally 2D benefit from 2.5D

3.  Bloodstained character designs/art already rival AK's art.  so the art is already taken care of. 

4. there are new original, creative vampires that can surpass Dracula.   it doesn't need Dracula to be awesome
and have a worthy antagonist, whether they are vampire or something else.

I think Bloodstained would benefit more having new/different lead antagonists each game instead of going the
Castlevania route. each time Dracula is defeated makes him look more like a joke getting their ass kicked by
everyone.   it's like their reputation is that of a seasonal punching bag. 

Bloodstained could keep the antagonist side of things fresh instead of recycling an antagonist that keeps
accumulating a bigger loser streak.   

 they sure can be more creative than following Castlevania's tradition with that.

Whatever you do, make sure the enemy is called Gunlord. It's his only chance to shine...

Prunyuu~

That said, what was the 'grudge' between the Chapel and the Dungeon, again? I used to be part of the Chapel (still am, technically) but I remember close to nothing about it. Was it because they didn't like LoS so much while we were more enthusiastic about it?

Kojima's designs are quite unique, and I don't think any other artist can emulate her signature artistic touch.
But in a way, that's a good thing: Order of Ecclesia showed us that Kojima wasn't the only artist capable of producing personal, yet gorgeous gothic-inspired designs, and Bloodstained's current art doesn't exactly disappoint. You could see it veering off slightly towards a more jarring anime-like approach, but I still find its level of detail, shading, and color palette impressive. I'm actually pretty fond of these flowery stained glass motives.

So I'm actually not too concerned about the game's artistic choices. After all, we've seen much, much worse.

It's difficult to answer your questions because we don't know the answers yet. But we do know that this is not SOTN 2 (if that was your question?). I would love to see an upside down castle too but I doubt it will happen. We have to wait and see. The screenshots are probably not ingame screens, just very early concept art.

  I know now is not SOTN 2 sadly SOTN 2 last year for 3DS just a rumor but anyway IGAs new Metroidvania game will be amazing maybe better than sotn I will be shocked.

But the game screens for this picture is real maybe?:

Suddenly I remember this post a made after the initial rumor for this,

Yea 4 mill is unrealistic, but I think given how starved the CV fanbase is for a proper title it making 2.5 million is reasonable enough, and who knows it may suprise you with 3 million.

After all as much as I love Mega Man I never thought the kickstarter would reach as much money as It did, but like CV I believed it would do well given how neglected the fanbase has felt from Capcom.

I remember being told it was "unrealistic" to get Mighty No.9 numbers and at the time I started to doubt myself and believe it may be unrealistic....

Don't seem so unrealistic now does it lol? :P

31 days to go and we are already past the 1.5 million mark.
