Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

Not sure I get the whole 4 eps is a season thing but I did like it

 

Netflix orginal animation tends to have short seasons, unless its made in Flash or CGI like the Dreamworks series. Like "F is for Family"'s first season is only 6 episodes long. Even season 2 of 7 Deadly is only 4 episodes.

This was actually pretty good.  Imagine Universe of Castlevania (barely), the style of Vampire Hunter D, and the violence and gore of Game of Thrones. The music fit so well, I didn't even notice it.

I am looking forward to seeing this. I haven't got into a Castlevania game since the NES days, but that trailer was awesome!

 

So you skipped Super Castlevania IV and Symphony of the Night but this is what brings you back?

Overall, i liked it. If this it for now. Its gonna be a long wait for season 2, since this flowed more like the beginning of a story, cutting off just as you get going. Still, it certainly makes you want more.

That's what I gathered from Symphony of the Night.

 

It'll be interesting if they adapt SotN in a future season...


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Having never played any Castlevania games before the Lords of Shadow series. Robert Carlyle is an awesome voice to have for the character he plays.

I wish there could have been a third part, but Konamis gone pachinko so...

Anyway. Having never really seen this take on Dracula, it was a surprisingly different start.

I've only watched the first episode but I really, really love their take on Dracula. I don't know how much is pure Castlevania and how much Ellis brings, but I like it. Big Dracula fan; he's a dude who shows up all over the place and he's so often rubbish in one way or another, or all.

They may actually return to games since the Pachinko market isn't the moneymaker they'd hoped it was.

From what I read, Warren Ellis had to  fully rewrite the script  EIGHT times before Koji Igarashi was happy with it. So I Imagine that it is mostly pure Castlevania, just with Ellis' flair added in.

They really did get the lore down pretty well for this.  It is very much Castlevania 3 with some SotN thrown in for backstory.  If you played both of those games, you will have a pretty good grasp of things.

 

However...

 

Spoiler

 

Season 2 was confirmed on the same day this debuted.  We just need to wait till next year.

Watched the four eps (in Japanese with subtitles. Have to watch it again in English).

I absolutely HATE the fact that they took out Grant! He was my favorite character and, gah! They could have made him into a stereotypical comedic sidekick but he should have been there! The stupid prophecy thing had Alucard saying a vampire hunter and a magician but no mention of a pirate? Argh argh argh!!!

Unless he's slated to appear in s2? Is he? Please?

The first part made me like it a lot, with Lisa, BUT I've seen this before with the Saint of Killers from Preacher comics. So it's not new.

Designs are ok but animation is not that good. Sloppy. Low budget anime?

Them falling into the hole in ep 4 was too much of a coincidence, eh.

Sypha being stoned by Cyclops was fine. That was cool. She's totally overpowered afterwards though. And the Speaker stuff is weird. Is that Castlevania lore?

You guys are mentioning Symphony of the Night, which I never played (only modern Castlevania I played that's not Lord of Shadows is the one with Some Cruz, er, I forget the title). Is Lisa canon?

Yeah, the goat bit i really cringed at. Its not funny, its not mature, its just a 'Woah shocked eh?' moment because this is a grown cartoon. Nothing meaningful would have been lost if that part of the scene had been cut.

Also, why is Grant so loved?

I don't care for Grant either way, but based on that article he has  two issues with the character. 1. He's a pirate in a long land-locked kingdom. 2. Name. Both of these are stupidly easy to fix while preserving the basics of the character.  1. If your history research says its be near impossible for pirates to be there, then don't make him a pirate; make him a thief, an assassin, or something else that keeps the rogue/scoundral nature of the character. 2. You don't like his last name? Change it, make 'DaNasty' a pseudonym or something. Hell let it be a point of contension and let Trevor mock him for such a 'try hard' 'bad guy' name. Let him has a different surname. You already alters parts of other characters to help fit this series, as long as the creator agrees, you can do whatever you want and still use the character.
