    Yeah, I didn't remember much of the first season except the beginning and end.

    The pacing is uneven and starts slow with character building and vampire intrigue, but taken in context of a whole season, it's a decent to nice surprise

    Castlevania is very good. Netflix got it right.

    Netflix definitely got Castlevania right. Thats one of the best shows they have ever put out.

    Castlevania is animated in Austin. I learned that recently.

    Castlevania is certainly good, no argument there. But it's an entirely American production, the same way Avatar and Korra were.

    Not that it matters to me, but some of the virgin weebs will get downright offended calling it an anime.

    Castlevania is fabulous!

    The best video game adaption imho. And I like how it is more “American” than “Japanese”. The intensity is just right and served up at the right temp too. If u are a fan of VampireHunterD you will like this.

    finished S2 of Castlevania yesterday

    [​IMG]

    can’t wait for S3 which unfortunately probably won’t be until Oct 2019 :(

    I felt for Dracula a little bit...he tried to do better, and then humans just fcked everything up...doesn’t mean he gets to just commit genocide tho

    I enjoyed many of the fight scenes

    very interested in seeing where they go from here and if they can keep up the quality unlike Tokyo Ghoul

    Anyone watching the new SAO season?

    Slow af. This last episode was mostly skippable dialogue and someone getting a weapon.

    I guess when a franchise blows up, they can take their sweet time animating paint drying on walls.

    For me, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken is getting more and more interesting. Its episodes fly by as fast as the Overlord's. The first 8 episodes have foreshadowed a pretty interesting story waiting ahead.

    I think Tinman would actually like the stake burnings.

    If Castlevania has the same drawing styles as any other anime, it's definitely in that category.

    Its intentioned. They purposely made the new SAO four-cour (48 episodes) to cover the vast amount of content in the arc they are covering. So its gonna be slow relatively to SAO 1 and 2, but even then apparently they skipped a large section of the light novel in the past few episodes.

    So yeah, its gonna be a year of SAO lol.

    I can't believe SAO has continued to be popular despite putting consistently mediocre to outright terrible material out. It's like The Walking Dead of anime.

    The first part of the first season was great, worthy of popularity. Fairy world was trash, I couldn't even finish season 2 or gun gale.

    Dude, this show is so good. Every episode feels like it lasted a minute. I just keep wanting more.

    Thoughts on Baki (Netflix)?

    I'm currently on episode 3. I'm digging it so far. Lots of gruesome stuff.

    It's weird and gross, but the action is cool. I tried to go back and watch the first series, but nobody has that time for that.

    And what is up with Netflix hiding it's titles? You input "anime" and there are a bunch of titles missing. Baki didn't come up in any of my searches until I actually put in "Baki".

    What else am I missing?
