I bought this manga due to my love for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I never played Cursed Seal of Darkness as this one is based off, so I can't say how accurate it is with the storyline.

This was certainly an interesting read, especially Volume 2 with the last chapter. It gave some insight on how Hector would survive if he was more accepted. The twists were also fairly well played out and kept me wanting more. It's a shame there has been no continuing 3rd volume though.

The one thing I would've liked to see added into this manga, was the fight between Belmont ...

It's important to preface this review that this manga is sorely incomplete. This is the biggest detractor from the narrative.

The narrative is written in a way that puts an incredible amount of focus not on Dracula, nor the Belmonts. Rather, this story is focusing on the two best sorcerers within Dracula's castle. It's written pretty well, and it's very solid in it's focus on creating believable characters with real problems and conflicts, but the complicating incident that essentially gets the story going is, quite literally, the final page of the manga.

I could talk about how there are great things here and there within the manga ...
