    For those that remember, media streaming giant Netflix announced that they would be making an original animated series based on Konami's Castlevania series. And today, we got a first look thanks to a teaser trailer posted by the Latin American Netflix Twitter. The 40 second long trailer is action packed, leading up to the reveal that the show will be available on July 7.

    I have to say I was expecting to cringe, but that trailer was super cool and has got me pumped.

    I knew that studio name was familiar, Frederator did a bunch of Nickelodeon shows. It looks really good, I guess a Last Airbender looking style, though they weren't involved with that series. The shows I know they were involved in, Fairly OddParents and My Life As A Teenage Robot, so some pedigree. Trailer's nice.

    This trailer is impressive. I've been concerned about this series, mainly because something like this usually doesn't end well, but it looks promising.

    The show looks like it'll be great, or at least decent.

    Well, the art style and animation looks surprisingly on-point! I'll definitely give this a go once it releases.

    Frederator? Wot..

    I'm also excited that it won't be in that shitty 2.5d animation style.

    It was said Frederator was working on a Castlevania animated series back in 2015. Later there were rumors of Nick working with Frederator on a Nintendo based property. Then Netflix announced a Castlevania animated series. I wonder if this was originally supposed to be on Nick but they ended up passing due to content issues?

    From the trailer, it seems it may be based on Castlevania III, damn that game is hard! O_O

    Well time to reactivate my netflix again, hope is worth the $10 for the month. I just hope it has some epic music like the game. :)

    He was supposed to write the script for an animated adaptation of Castlevania III, I guess he did got to write Castlevania after all!

    Konami, you fucked up with Metal Gear. You fucked up with Silent Hill. You fucked up woth Yugioh. You fucked up once with Castlevania. PLEASE do this right so we can get another 2d metroidvania.

    Hurray, the anime don't look homoerotic or targetted for children! Hopefully the dialog and the script are up to the task as well!

    I kind of wonder if Konami is even involved with this at all since I've yet to see their name mentioned at all anywhere.
