people..like seriously...I don't know what to say, but can you freaking like the art style as it is ? you need to accept that the artist is not Ms.Kojima it's someone with a different style and different view stop comparing and looking back a lot..it's so disgusting. if you see something beautiful like it for it's beauty and stop comparing with something else, this goes for different matters in life. I really got sick of people comparing the art style with Ayame's...ok Ayame has an amazing style and fits this genre well ! but she's not the only one who can draw in this whole planet she got busy and she can't participate with this project so they got someone else who's doing a flawless job imo..

This exactly.   Yes, it's a different artist, with their own style, so of course it looks different.  Bloodstained is its own entity, it's not Castlevania, although it's as close as we're going to get in the foreseeable future, sadly.  Yes, it would be amazing to have Ayame Kojima's involved, but hey, she's busy. That's completely excusable and understandable.  Different artists have their own styles, doesn't make them inherently better or worse than others.  The art style here is a little less intricate in the tiny details, but it's still pretty.  Heck, just look at that castle vista!  It's stunning.  It reminds me a little of the castle in The Neverending Story.
I remember a time when one of the complaints about the Metroidvanias was that Kojima's character designs were too feminine, too bishie pretty boy, and not buff, ripped manliness, like in the older games.  Yes, we've been a bit spoilt by having such amazing artwork from Ayame Kojima's, and the artists for LoS, but it's still good. Heck, it's less anime styled than the art for Rondo, or for PoR, and DoS.  Even then, anime comes in so many styles.  Just look at the gorgeous Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust, or Hellsing Ultimate, and compare it to the overly cutesy, stereotypical anime styles such as in say, Cardcaptor Sakura (which I admit to having a soft spot for).

just becuz ayami kojima wasnt available to do the artwork for bloodstained, doesnt mean she wont be able to make some renditions later on. case in point, dawn of sorrow:

I guess I'm kinda surprised he's making it based entirely within the castle a la SotN or DoS, given how Curse, PoR, and OoE mixed it all up. But I guess this is going to be a fairly gigantic castle anyways.

Aye, it would be wonderful if she could do some Bloodstained art, at some point. :)

My guess is if he makes more Bloodstained games, for variation's sake if anything, chances are he might open it up again and go outside the castle. And unlike Castlevania he isn't even really locked in to always having a castle.

It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

Ooooo, late 1700s! That's SotN-era stuff, baby! Schweeet!

Some of that artwork of the dungeon/alchemy lab gives me CoD feels with the Innocent Devils(which also had that whole "crystal" theme going for them).

Looks like IGA's going to use the Lesser Key of Solomon/Goetian demons as a main theme, but also be open to pulling other mythologies into the mix(like CV). I hope, considering like CV, this is historically set in our world, there will be some references to various occult figures, like John Dee or Roger Bacon.

I wonder if Miriam will be the start of a new bloodline similar to the Belmonts if there will be more games after this one.

If it plays out that way, it reminds me of how Sonia almost started the Belmont family until IGA retconned her.

Would be interesting. We'd need to know what her surname is, though. The family needs a name.

Also, considering this takes place in the late 18th century, that means her children and their children, if this series expands, will have their adventures during the Victorian era.

Miriam Bullwhip, Miriam Katana, Miriam Broadsword, Miriam Cat O' Nine Tails, etc. :rollseyes:
