Castlevania has been one of my favourite animated series in recent years. I love the strong female characters and I'm particularly in love with Striga this season, I wish she and Morana got more screen time. I thought the scene with her day armor was incredible! My partner and I watched the new season together and I think my incessant fawning over her has made him question my straightness.
I was a bit disappointed with the direction they chose to take with Carmilla's storyline, namely the trope of the man-hating woman going off the deep end. Also disappointed with what happened to Lenore... like, why? She had no reason to do what she did at the end. It felt like it was just sprung on us out of nowhere because the creators had no idea what to do with her character now and just came up with a convenient and unoriginal way to get rid of her. Overall, it felt like the Council of Sisters' storyline came to a premature end when it had barely begun.
Nonetheless, I thought the finale was great. I didn't at all expect the return of Lisa and I'm pretty thrilled about the next season.
What did you think?
Edit: I just found out there won't be a next season!!! Wtf Netflix?
