Netflix's animated take on Konami's Castlevania series went live on Friday, and we're sure a great many of you will already have basked in its blood-soaked, foul-mouthed brilliance. 

Penned by author and comic book legend Warren Ellis and featuring some impressive vocal talent, it's a surprisingly effective take on Castlevania III, and while we'll save the full critical analysis for our review (expect that early next week), we can tell you that we're enjoying it immensely.

Clearly the reaction to the series has been positive in terms of viewership as Netflix has renewed Castlevania for a second season, bumping the number of episodes from 4 to 8.

What do you think of the series? Will you be tuning in for the next 8 episodes? Let us know with a comment.
