Castlevania is a cult classic video game with a huge fan base. When it's Netflix adaptation was announced, many fans were filled with a cautious excitement - as film or TV adaptations of video games often fall flat and disgrace their source material. Luckily, the Castlevania series delighted and left viewers aching for more.
Set up as 4 part series with episodes maxing at 20 minutes, the series can easily be watched in a single sitting - and really should be. While the animation might put some people off, Castlevania could serve as a great introduction into the anime genre. The art style allows for creative and interesting visual storytelling. The plot contains multiple different perspectives and takes on the classic Dracula story. I've not played the video games, but apparently the show is incredibly faithful to the source material.
