It's rare that there's a show as good as the video game, but Castlevania on Netflix is just such a series. There are so many good episodes of Castlevania, but which ones really stand out? Do you like "Labyrinth" the best, or is "War Council" your favorite episode of Castlevania? To determine once and for all what the best episodes of Castlevania are, let's rank every Castlevania episode from best to worst.

Castlevania is a Netflix original, adult animated web television series based on the video game series of the same name by Konami. The story follows Trevor Belmont, Alucard and Sypha Belnades as they defend the nation of Wallachia from Dracula and his minions. Castlevania premiered on Netflix on July 7, 2017. With an art style heavily influenced by Japanese Anime and Ayami Kojima's artwork in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the story of Castlevania itself was described by the show’s writer Warren Ellis as a “Japanese transposition of the Hammer Horror films I grew up with and loved.”

Vote up your favorite episodes of Castlevania, and vote down any bad episodes that you really didn't enjoy, despite how much you love the series as a whole. It can be painful to put one Castlevania episode over the other when there are so many good ones, which is why you can vote on however many episodes you like.
