Get out your blood moons, monster mashes, spoopy skeletons, and a few stakes for good measure, it’s time for Aniki’s shivering review of Castlevania! Something out of the ordinary, Castlevania is an original English adaptation of the classic video games done in an anime style. With a star-studded voice cast, amazing visuals, and the promise of an action-filled adventure of killing vampires, does this Netflix original series live up to the hype? Also featuring: No Guns Life, Kemono Michi, Babylon, and Fate/Grand Order.
To celebrate All Hallows Eve, the brothers embark on a spooktactular romp through the 6th season of Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories. Briefly touching on each episode, they discuss the merits of horror, what makes a good scare, and which episodes of this season are worth your consideration. Are you brave enough to journey with them into the unknown? Also featuring initial impressions of Double Decker, Goblin Slayer, That Time I was Reincarnated as a Slime, My Neighbor the Vampire, and Zombie Land Saga.
As All Hallows Eve arrives this year, the brothers finish their foray into the dark recesses of Yamishibai. Jon delivers a tale of an accursed hikikomori that receives help from a friendly Shinto priestess. Ben caps off the spooks with the story of a girl who actually managed to get senpai to notice her, though she may regret it. Also featuring: Kuzu no Honkai, a discussion on if Stranger Things or Higurashi is more creepy, and final scary anime picks.
