In this video we can see what seems to be a chapter intro's cover:



And in the description the user said that its from a manga called "Devil Castle's Dracula: Tears of Blood Manga", but I've never heard of it until now, searching for this name and replacing Devil Castle with Akumajo didn't helped me too. Someone know something about this?

Here is what I found on the matter:

http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/ZHORE37635

The name is, apparently, Chi no Namida - Akumajo Dracula X. It looks like it's a fanfiction of Rondo of Blood. I believe the proper translation would be "Bloody Tears - Demon Castle Dracula X" but Imma no japanese speaker, so maybe I'm wrong.

I also found another page that might contain more info, but I can't see it because as soon as I open it, it redirects me to somewhere else.

EDIT: Welp found the whole thing:

The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

Wow, right below our noses :-D
Some user can try to translate it? It seems more like a artbook from main moments from Rondo of Blood and Dracula X than a manga.


Also theplottwist, If you press ESC quickly at your second link, you can stop the redirecting, I've found these manga that I don't know nothing about too, but seems to be interesting, varying from CV3, CV64, SOTN and even CV Bloodlines.

Someone know about this? Seems to be another artbook and the art seems to be beautiful, but its so tiny in these previews.

At least the artist of Chi no Namida - Akumajo Dracula X wasn't lazy about the look of the vampirekiller whip. Points for that. Also, this almost looks like it was meant for the SNES Dracula X more then Rondo. looking at the way the characters are drawn kind of directs me to that conclusion, especially with Dracula's look.

And also points for adding in the infamous Simon Belmont pose!

Huh, I like the edgy imaginary. I would like to see a Castlevania game with a more darker tone like that, except not completely retarted and try-hard like the Lords of Shadow series.

Castlevania needs more edgy cruficiation imaginery because edgy

Konami hears you and they've listened Nagumo!

Have you not seen the Erotic Violence trailer? 😜

I can't wait to hear the new theme song, Bloody Boobs.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Castlevania game with visuals based on the Dracula X SNES artwork, whether it's 2D sprites or 3D models.

With all the edge LoS has (so much it hurts ow the edge), I'm surprised MS hasn't thought of putting in crucification somewhere (unless they have and I've just forgotten; it's been a while ever since I've even touched the game).

That last page of Richter in Simon's iconic pose is really cool.
