The first season of Castlevania came as a surprise to the Netflix catalog last year. Only those who regularly followed the streaming platform news knew that it was coming, but most people were surprised. When watching the full season, the surprise was even greater: a good quality animation, with impeccable voice work!
The second season of Castlevania focuses on the stormy relationship between Trevor Belmont and Adrian Tepes, respectively, a monster hunter and the son of Dracula also known as Alucard. The hook left by the previous season final episode is unhurriedly developed in this new installment of chapters, giving us bloody action and increasing pressure on the relationship of these two men until the inevitable confrontation.
In addition, the voice acting in Castlevania remains spectacular. The cast was greatly chosen to give life to these classic characters who have made huge success among anyone who’s had a videogame in the last 30 years. Richard Armitage, who plays the voice of Trevor Belmont, is particularly outstanding. With a guttural timbre that transmits a sense of emergency and danger, Armitage nails the characterization, delivering a complex character where few moments of hesitation are latent in his voice.
The second season of Castlevania, therefore, has everything to become yet another great Netflix success. By delving deeper into the relationships between the main characters, the series takes on unexpected and increasingly tense directions, leaving those who are watching with the same sensation. Although in the middle of the season the story may seem stagnated, something somewhat common in Netflix productions, its final episodes are phenomenal, and make up for that flaw.
