Anime Review: Castlevania Season 3

Hello my dear anime lovers, I hope everything is going well, and anime continues to make you happy.

If you’ve been online at all in the past few weeks, and have an interest in anime, you’ve probably seen some posts on Castlevania, even if you haven’t seen it yourself.

It’s a Netflix Original anime, and Season 3 just came out recently, and since I just finished it last night, we’re gonna review it.

Castlevania Season 3

The Story so far…

This season was a bit slower for the Castlevania story. It wasn’t as fast paced as the first two seasons.

Dracula is dead, so our focus is on the Vampire alliance, the Belmont duo, and Alucard.

Alucard doesn’t do much, but he is a great example of social distancing! His focus is on training the siblings, and interacting with humans again now that he is awake.

The Vampire alliance is a bit slower too. They’re into the scheming and planning their next steps for subjugating the human race, so not a lot of action from their end.

Belmont et al. are the primary focus, and I liked the mystery they were trying to solve this season. It was a nice change from the constant fighting, though we get plenty of that still, don’t worry!

Who’s who?

I don’t think any of the new characters really stood out this season. We got St. Germain, but I wasn’t a fan of him. He seemed to be too much like Trevor Belmont for my liking, but somehow worse.

Getting to explore the Forgemaster’s stories was nice. They had been introduced before, but they were background characters. We didn’t get the depth that we did this season.


The Battles: WOW

In 10 episodes, we probably get 3 or 4 BIG fights, but the battle at the end makes it all worth it.

It probably sounds pretty stupid, but I have a new appreciation for whips. Seeing a whip being used in this season, and sometimes two whips at once, has actually been really cool.

You don’t often see whips being used at all, and when they are it’s usually a slave master or something. They are an under appreciated weapon, that I really want to see more of now.


What’s next for Castlevania?

Obviously we don’t have an ending to the story yet. We will be (hopefully) getting more Castlevania.

I think with the next season, we will get a battle with Trevor and the Vampire Alliance. The battle built up this season, and I think next season will see the two sides clash.

We will also probably get more Alucard fights, in his slow descent into evil…turning into Dracula.

We don’t know when Season 4 will be out, but I know I’ll be watching it the moment that it does.

Supernatural Season 3 Review

Sorry this is a day late, but I was late for work yesterday and didn’t get home till almost midnight, but don’t worry, you didn’t miss out on another review.

I’m just gonna be blunt about this season, it is awesome. I think the writer’s strike that was happening at the time and causing there to only be 16 episodes was a stroke of luck. It just seemed so much more compact and there was no extra fluff in the season

There was the right amount of hilarity, seriousness and overall story. We know right form the hop that Dean only has one year to live, before the hell hounds come for him, and we slowly see him go from “I’m going to die in a year I can do whatever I want” to “I don’t wanna die Sammy.”

Bella was a great addition to the season. She is a thief that has a few run ins with the Winchesters, and unfortunately she doesn’t turn herself around in the end, eventually paying her end of her deal with her life.

She added a sort of rival to the brothers, with a bit of sexual tension and humour when she’d outsmart Dean.

We also get one of the most touching moments in the series. There’s a Christmas episode, and Dean wants to have one last Christmas with his brother. Sam doesn’t agree at first because he’s not a fan of Christmas, but eventually the two brothers swap gifts and spend some time watching the game together.

Dean eventually succumbs to the deal he made, but we all know he’s gonna be back right?

I think the “brother” aspect of the show really came out to shine in this season. There was more of the brotherly bickering present, but at the same time the understanding of each other’s every move. At this point they would have spent years together on the road, and we can see it in simple frustrations, and the way they perfectly bounce off each other.

Season 3 is the start of the end of the original proposed show’s run time, and you can tell by its solid storytelling, character development, and lack of cheesy plotholes.

Overall season rankings:
Season 3
Season 2
Season 1

Quote of the Day: Supernatural Season 3

Since I moved into my own place this week and didn’t have WiFi, I didn’t get the chance to review a book this week. Instead you’re stuck with some Supernatural Season 3 Quotes. Hope you enjoy.


Bobby: So, we’re eating bacon cheeseburgers for breakfast, are we?
Dean: Well, sold my soul. Got a year to live. I ain’t sweatin’ the cholesterol.


Ben: No, don’t go over there. Only bitches send a grown-up.
Dean: You’re not wrong.
Ben: And I’m not a bitch.


Sam: I think it’s Snow White.Dean: Snow White? Ah, I saw that movie. Or, the porn version anyways. There was this wicked Stepmother. [hoots] She was wicked.


Dean: You know what he said. Some good advice.Sam: Is that what you want me to do, Dean? Just let you go?

Sam: How do you sleep at night?
Bela: On silk sheets, rolling naked in money.

Dean: Can I shoot her?
Sam: Not in public.


Bela: You know, when this is over, we should really have angry sex.
Dean(after thinking hard) Don’t objectify me.

Gordon: Sam Winchester’s the Antichrist.
Bela: Ooh. I’d heard something about that…
Gordon: It’s true.
Bela: …from my good friend, the Easter Bunny. Who’d heard it from the Tooth Fairy. Are you off your meds?


Bela: You make me an offer and I think you’ll find me highly cooperative.Gordon: Okay, how about you tell me where they are, or I kill you right now?


Sam: That vampire’s still out there, Dean.Dean: First things first.Sam: Gordon.Dean: About that, when we find him, or if he finds us.Sam: Yeah?Dean: Well I’m just saying, he’s not leaving us a whole lot of options.Sam: Yeah, I know. We’ve gotta kill him.Dean: Really? Just like that? I thought you would have been like, “No, we can’t, he’s a human, it’s wrong.”Sam: No I’m done. I mean Gordon’s not gonna stop until we’re dead. Or ’til he is.


Dean: Christmas is Jesus’ birthday.
Sam: No, Jesus’ birthday was probably in the fall. It was actually the Winter Solstice Festival that was co-opted by the church and renamed Christmas. But I mean the Yule log, the tree, even Santa’s red suit, that’s all remnants of Pagan worship.
Dean: How do you know that? What’re you gonna tell me next? The Easter Bunny’s Jewish?


Henriksen: You know what I’m trying to decide?
Dean: I don’t know. What? Whether Cialis will help you with your little condition?


Dean: I just talked to an 84-year-old grandmother who’s having phone sex with her husband. Who died in Korea.
Sam: Ugh.
Dean: Completely rocked my understanding of the word necrophilia


Rufus: You do her ear?
Dean: Hey man, I’ll try anything once, but I don’t know, that sounds uncomfortable.


Dean: Why don’t we just make a T.J. run. You know, some señoritas, cervezas, uh, we could, what’s Spanish for “donkey show”?
Sam: So if we do save you… let’s never do that.


Dean: If this is my last day on earth, I do not want it to be socially awkward.


Sam: I’m not gonna let you go to Hell, Dean!
Dean: Yes, you are! Yes, you are! I’m sorry! I mean this is all my fault. I know that. But what you’re doing, it’s not gonna save me. It’s only gonna kill you.
Sam: Then what am I supposed to do?
Dean: Keep fighting. Take care of my wheels. Sam, remember what Dad taught you, okay? And remember what I taught you.
