Is it just me or some of the (main role) voice acting in this series is cringey af (I mean, not every male character has to sound like Geralt).

Lament of Innocence adaptation would be great especially after how many times Trevor name dropped Leon in season 2. Or better yet....

Symphony of the Night adaptation!

Cool! 10-12 episodes seems to be the right length to adapt a game, going by how they adapted Castlevania 3.

Season 2 was freaking fantastic, so I'm looking forward to it.

In all seriousness, which game is the next season most likely to cover? Are they more likely to push forward and do the next game in the timeline or are they going to go backwards and adapt one of the games that came previous in the timeline Castlevania 3?

They somehow managed to make Matt Frewer (Max Headroom) give a bland performance.

What about Graham as Dracula? He didn't sound cringy to me.

Nice. The second season was a huge step up from the first, although it's still annoying that Ellis keeps trying to make social points while clearly not knowing or caring how the society the show is set in functioned. (Why are there Catholic bishops running around Romania? Why is a bishop able to carry out executions instead of handing people convicted in an ecclesiastical court to secular authorities? Why are secular authorities limited to one sleeping guard in episode 2? Why would a bishop's entourage in the middle of the Renaissance believe that a spring catch was black magic? Why would the same people also act like classical Greek works were suspicious and heretical when they would have been part of any serious education and any real theologian would be expected to know them, particularly in the former territory of the Eastern Roman empire, where many of those texts were preserved?)

I thought the quality of writing for Dracula was mixed, but I agree the voice acting for him was pretty solid.

I'd argue the writing itself is what's cringy. It's completely juvenile and nothing like the video games its allegedly based on.

I was also a little shocked at the uniform praise in the review (and elsewhere on the web), but to be fair, they seemed to be more interested in the idiosyncrasies of the script writer and making a joke of the world / setting than in hoping the show would take itself somewhat seriously. Although, even then, it's hard to see how anyone can think Godbrand was a character worth writing..

EDIT: Oh, oops, this is kind of a non sequitur. Had just finished reading this column and confused it with the reference for this thread: animenewsnetwork.com/this-week-in-anime/2018-11-01/.138921
