If you wish for a physical copy and a collector's edition, Anime Limited (UK based company) is planning
Anime Limited announcedthat it will release the first four-part season of the Castlevania animated series as a Collectors Blu-ray in the second quarter of 2019.
Anime Limited was not able to confirm the contents of the Collectors Edition as of writing, but said it was "hoping to be able to utilise lots of art" in an art booklet, and that the disc would be likely to contain some extra content as well as the four expisodes of the season.
Not confirmed or guarantee but season 3 might be released this December
Update: An individual reached out to Samuel Deats – the director of the Castlevania of the Netflix series –on Twitter and asked if the 1st December listing for the third season was true (thanks, GoNintendo). This was the director's reply:
HAH, that's news to me and would certainly be scary considering we're still working on the last episode of the season.
Original Story Wed 27th Nov, 2019 01:05 GMT: Last November, Netflix confirmed Trevor Belmont would return in the Castlevania animated series.The third season will reportedly be comprised of ten episodes – making it the biggest run yet based on Konami's classic video game series.
Now, the official Netflix Nordic Twitter account has seemingly revealed the third season will be arriving on 1st December. In saying this, the tweet has since been deleted – meaning there are no longer any guarantees the new episodes will actually be released on this date.
First few episodes - it seems we are breaking the season with separate story lines
Trevor and Belmont go to Lidenfield where the leader, Judge, asks them to investigate the creepy Dracula worshiping monkis
We explore the vampire sisters (non blood related), Camilla's gang, at their castle where Hector is held prisoner. Lenore takes the initiative to pacify and persuade Hector into their group.
Alucard is lonely. He picks up two Japanese siblings whom wanted to learn how to kill vampires.
Finally, Isaac, is on a revenge quest to avenge his master by making his way to Camilla's castle after receiving a mirror that reveals the location. He still believes Hector is a traitor. He runs into two nice human beings who made him question whether all human beings are worth killing in the end. I like how the pirate phrased it: yes you will end human cruelty but you also will end human kindness at the same time.
Trevor has some alone time about his self worth until Judge interrupts him. Lenore literally has Hector on a leash. Something's amiss for sure. The scientist guy has something hiding too. Meanwhile, Alucard and the samurai kids are having a fun time.
I was rewatching the fly demon speaking to Isaac. It was a powerful scene. The only moments where the English voice beats the Japanese voice. The fly's English voice feels more scary especially how the music increases as the fly talks about how he was hunted by Christians and gave up others so he can live. Found himself killed anyways. He grew to like sin. I like the phrase "insane world"
There is some conflict but not much. Taka and Sumi are impatient with Alucard teaching them.
I barely notice the Japanese audio doesn't match the English subtitles. I think the English subtitles are for the English audio. Unless I missed something in Netflix's audio options.
Got to learn about Saint Germain and things got weird when Infinite Corridor got explained. An interdimensional portal that connects to other worlds. Feels out of place in Castlevania. No wonder Saint Germain mentions toilet paper and things that are ahead of their time.
Animation is great. There were times where it slow down or felt stilted (When Trevor and Sypha were fighting the white wing devils near the inside of the Church entrance and other moments), the only good soundtrack was at the end.
Judge's "little pleasures" I should have realized the hints given. He wasn't a good man. Alucard with the siblings seducing him to sex. I feel that's rushed and unwarranted given how little we flesh out Taka and Sumi
Not shocking moments
Lenora's scheme - Hector - you should have saw that.
This season was slow but more on character and story building. It was more a giant set up for next season. For sure, Isaac will cross paths with Camilla's group. Can't say for the other 2 groups: Trevor/Sypha and Alucard (Alucard doesn't seem to go on journeys though)
Old Man Dream: Fun fact about The Rescuers: It has a dirty little secret you can find in older releases of the movie. (NSFW, as a heads up)

Taka: Didn't see anything until I read the description and comments. It goes by really fast. Edit: Someone really sneak in a picture. Edit 2: Tried pausing to find it. It's harder to track compared to REZERO's IF pictures

Old Man Dream: Set the playback speed on the video to 0.25x. Should make it easier to get a good pause on one of the two naughty bits. Both appear around 0:19ish in the video.

Old Man Dream: Just got done with The Rescuers. See if I can get a review for this up tonight or if not, sometime tomorrow.
