REVIEW: Castlevania Season 4

Season four of Castlevania is the final season for the Netflix hit series. The final season is ten episode with a 25 to 30 minutes per an episode. This season takes place six weeks after season three. Season Four does not disappoints. NO SPOILERS

PROS

The animation and the hardcore action continues to be one of the main attractions for the series. I thought the story was very balance and each episode was devoted to one of the main characters from season one to tie up loose ends and story threads from season three.

The voice actors of Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont, James Callis as Alucard, and Alejandra Reynoso as Sypha all did a fantastic job with the entire series. They brought these characters to life with their voices and brought a ton of emotion as well through their voices. Episode six, to ten was the best episodes from season four. There’s tons of action and payoff moments. Episode nine and ten was very good with a lot of surprise twist.

Episode six has the best battle in season four and it’s up there in my top three battles throughout the series. If you’re a fan of Camilla from the game episode six will not disappoint you.

If you are a big fan of Trevor Belmont he gets his due and a big moment for the finale. Season four introduce a few new characters and another big villain from the video games which was a huge surprised twist. Alucard is back in action compared to where he was in season three. Lots of great moments from Castlevania’s big three.

CONS

The first five episodes does have some pacing issues and falls into the trap of filler episodes. Some moments are planted for the second half of season four but episodes four and five are my least favourite from season four.

Since season one it looks like the gory violence was watered down a bit in each season. Season Four was no different from the past few seasons which takes away from what makes this animated series to stand out.

OVERALL 8.5/10

Castlevania Season Four has its moments in the first five episodes but once we get into episode six the show finally takes off and the stakes becomes bigger. Even though this is a season finale for Netflix’s Castlevania I expect we will visit Castlevania again in a spinoff series since season four left some things open in-ended.
