It’s been 17 long months, but finally, the third season of Castlevania is available to stream on Netflix. After binging the series ourselves, we were incredibly impressed with the final season. Longtime fans and new fans of the video game franchise can all love Original thanks to its superb score, animation and voice acting, and comprehensive fantasy story. Some may not consider the series “anime” due to its western animation, but it’s art style and video game influence means Castlevania definitely deserves a mention in this list.
