A brave and smart woman named Lisa captures the dark lord’s, Dracula’s heart, from the moment she dared to knock on his castle door, asking for knowledge on medicine, so she could heal people. They end up teaching each other, of medicine, humanity, and what it is to be a mortal man. After a while Lisa manages to persuade Dracula to go, and see the world for himself, see it as mortals do. Yet this transformative journey becomes a tragedy worthy of an apocalypse he swears to bring upon mankind. For in his absence, ignorant masses, led by a fool priest who’d not know God’s will if it slapped him in the face, capture Lisa, and burn her at stake as a witch.
Belmont family is disgraced and hated. They were once famous monster hunters. For all his current worth, Trevor Belmont is still of kind heart, and good skill. A skill he, and everyone who hated his family too, their name, will soon dearly want and need. For, you can imagine, The Dark Prince has kept his word to open the gates of hell upon Earth.
I loved it enough to watch it twice in one night. The fact that this season is made out of four episodes that add up to less than two hours of content, did help too. The jokes, if a bit oddly executed, were funny. And you really don’t need any previous knowledge on the games. The old ones are 2D side-scrollers, you need emulators for those, or those old consoles, and likely adapters for your nice new TV’s, and maybe a 6 year old, because I tried, and I couldn’t pass the very first boss. The newer ones, the proper ones that you can get on Steam – I don’t know whether there’s any relation to this story in them.
Anyway, loved it. And not just because of Dracula.
