This week, Kate and LaNeysha are going back to one of their favorite Western anime, Castlevania, as the review season three of the hit series from one of their favorite animation studios, Powerhouse Animation. You’ve heard them thirst over Seis Manos, and of course all the other tall and broad men in anime, but you haven’t seen anything yet. But don’t worry, this episode isn’t all thirst. This episode is filled to the brim with spoilers as the women of Did You Have To? discuss Castlevania season three’s character arcs, how the show treats its women, the way the show shows intimacy and how it’s used as another form of power, and ultimately where they feel the story will go in the future.
Castlevania season three is a lot to handle, with Isaac, Hector, Alucard, and everyone favorite’s OTP Sypha and Trevor each getting their own storylines. That said, the show does balance them well and the women get into each and every one of them. If you’re looking to listen to both fangirl thirst and deep deconstructions of vampire lore and gender dynamics, this is the Castlevania review for you. We talk the horny, the gory, and the truly phenomenal.
Castlevania is currently streaming exclusively on Netflix.
