A lot of you have been very excited about AllTheAnime.com & Zavvi.com release of Castlevania: Season 1 as Blu-ray Ltd. Collector’s Edition set – so much so that’s it’s pretty much out-of-print already! – and have been looking forward to receiving it and seeing how the final product turned out.
Well today the wait is over we’re delighted to bring you a full unboxing of this set!
If you need a quick primer about the series before we get to the unboxing proper, we’ve got you covered. Read on below.
Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself.
SEASON ONE SYNOPSIS: “Trevor Belmont, embittered and excommunicated, finds himself drawn into a battle for the survival of Europe–a region that has brought doom upon itself by taking away the one thing its greatest monster loved.”
Adapting the story of the hit game “Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse” the series written by renowned writer Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Astonishing X-Men) is a fantastic viewing experience for fans of the franchise and those completely new to it as well. The success of the first season on Netflix led to a second being produced and a third season also being green lit for production!
