Just watched the new season of Castlevania the other night on Netflix and it wasn't too bad. The animation seems significantly jankier this season in a lot of places and it looks like they're using the awful CG models from Berserk or Kingdom or some shit at times. A couple of the fights are really fluid and fun, but a lot just looked… bad.

Warren Ellis isn't a spectacular writer but I did like the anti-aristocrat/ruling class and anti-imperialism themes. It's pretty explicit in calling out the greed of the wealthy and the futility of imperialism, and the main characters overtly say that the ruling classes are either incapable or unwilling to help so that the only option is for people to organize themselves. I'm not sure if the multiculturalism we see in the refugee town is meant as Liberal multicult pap or as a somewhat subtle gesture towards internationalism, but I suppose it could be interpreted either way. I don't know how many black or brown people there were in 14th century Wallachia, but in the context of the show it seems like it makes sense we have vampires from Copenhagen to Cathay in on Dracula's omnicidal war, so it's easy to imagine there's a lot of population disruption going on.

Not a great season, but fun. Three Marx out of five.

It felt as if they put two or three seasons worth of plot into one, it was really rushed. I guess it wasn't as profitable as they hoped, so they reduced funding and said that he had one season left to finish the things. And yes, the animation is noticeably worse in last one.

Garbage, stop consuming media just because it's related to other media you like. Castlevania hasn't been good for ages anyway.

Retarded take, you will never know if it's bad until you watch it anyway.

It's actually pretty good. This season dunks on liberal Girlboss shit, imperialism, and the vampires are a stand in for the bourgeoisie which the show states in pretty plain terms should kill themselves for the good of the planet.
