Thank you so much for posting this! I probably never would have seen it. My extreme love for Vampire Hunter D is the reason I first picked up a Castlevania game at all. Lament of Innocence was my first, and I played it because the look of it reminded me so much of VHD: Bloodlust. It's been true love ever since.

This. This is the reason I've been gone from the forums, lol. Besides work.
Can't neglect a parent fandom! (In a great way, it's connected to ours by Yoshitaka Amano now!! But it probably was beforehand because of Castlevania/Ayami Kojima, too. She did art of one of the Vampire Hunter D spinoff novels, Greylancer. The more you know!)
Also LeoLeWolferoux , it more than just resembles Castlevania. It shaped it, in a way. After backing the comic and watching the VHD: Bloodlust movie, I can see where a lot of inspiration came from. Castlevania developers were big fanboys of the series, and I find it adorable. Mike has said before that Alucard was inspired by D, and he's right. D can be seen as Alucard's equal or even alternate universe brother. Not only Iga took inspiration from VHD either...several Castlevania games besides the Igavanias have plots/characters similar to the novels. I've read the synopsis of a lot of the novels, I just can't wait to get my hands on them.
Also getting my hands on the new Resurrection TV series coming up, and the comic which is the topic here. Who is excited to see some of D's backstory? I'm also excited for that Pathfinder VHD add-on! I'll have to go get myself a set for the occasion, I've played the game before and love it.

So soon!! I'm so happy. Check on the official Facebook and Kickstarter (that Mike posted) for more info, as always. Preorders are out! Just scroll through the Facebook page for variant covers. Too bad I can't go to NYCC to get the preview issue...(way too far!!)
Also, Chibi VHD. Argh, . So glad I backed this project!!
Lestaroth: Finally back here. Time to update on about everything!

castledan: Has anyone made a topic about transformations?

castledan: I think that'd be cool. Like a more detailed function of it. Give us many different abilities to do with the transformation or imagine your transformation evolving as you level up.

purifyweirdsoul: lol yeah I like almost all of these games a lot. Glad you enjoyed the talk. Anybody else out there, be sure to check out the new BCB if you have the time (it's long! and that's pretty much my fault entirely!)

purifyweirdsoul: Huh, the forum database seems messed up or something. It says I'm the only member that's been on in 24 hours.
