Well, temporarily at least. I highly doubt an adaptation of Castlevania 3 is going to change things so drastically as to install someone besides Dracula as the actual main villain. Until then, let’s roll with it!
In the aftermath of Dracula’s death in season 2, his generals are taking control and spreading mayhem throughout the world, led presumably by Carmilla. You know what they say, demonic evil abhors a power vacuum. Trevor and Sypha seem to be traveling the world wrecking demons everywhere they go, while Alucard deals with the mixed emotions that come with killing his father. Humans and demons are at war and both seem intent on wiping the other out for good. We’re in a bit of uncharted territory here. While Castlevania may have begun as an adaptation of the third game in the series, we’re well beyond a simple adaptation at this point. Are we still in 3? Have we moved past it, with show characters set to take roles they take in future games? When will Dracula inevitably resurrect?
Hey, if they want to let Carmilla be the lesbian vampire queen we all deserve, I have zero complaints.
I had mixed feelings about Castlevania’s second season, and can’t help but watch this trailer and wonder if the show should have ended Castlevania 3 last season and moved into different games moving forward. Does that mean I’m not looking forward to a new season? Of course not. If nothing else, I know I’ll get some of the most gorgeous animated fight scenes being pumped out of any animation studio right now. This is an absolute pleasure to watch, and I’m reminded of just how pleasurable it is while watching this trailer.
