If you have ommetaphobia (fear of eyes) there are a few scenes where there are closeups of a characters intense facial expression, with large, often bulging eyes.
Similar to the anime trope where a character is about to go insane, and they have this fish-eye perspective. That's used in this show as well.

In episode 1, season 1 it's Richter as a child.
In episode 2, season 1 it's Tera's sister as she is tied up.
Somewhere in the final episodes of season 1 it's a vampire.

There's one towards the end of the series when Richter is ambushed by a bunch of vampires. The camera lingers on a shot of the dark forest, so there's a pretty big tell.

Not in the more stereotypical sense but Night Creatures used to be humans. In this show some of the Night Creatures (partially) remember their past as a human, while others don't and are used to fight for the vampires.

No. Some of the aristocrats are wearing masks but these resemble luxury masks or Venizian masks. I don't know where else I'd put this possible warning.

At one point Maria injures her upper arm which Annette later fixes with something resembling voodoo magic by stitching up a piece of cloth, while Maria's injury is also stitched together again. The needle is not very visible, but the act of the wound closing is obvious.

First episode:
- brief fireworks in the beginning
- when a vampire is lit on fire. It's very bright.
- there is a Lot especially in the beginning, most magics: Fire, Lightning, etc all have some very flashy, strobing effects to them.
- I would highly reccomend watching in a brightly lit room, or during the day time.

SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 2


Technically the first death happens in a flashback but in episode two a prominent Black character died in a way that certainly felt evocative of this trope to me. This person was newly introduced and died suddenly and unceremoniously before we got to spend much time with them. This death isn’t brushed off nor is it the end of that character’s presence in the series but I’d definitely say it qualifies.

It’s the Castlevania anime so the church is very present and very evil. A lot of it was hard for me to listen to, priests invoking religion to demonize anyone they disagree with or don’t understand while at the same time using their religion to justify truly horrific actions. These people are presented as the villains they are but it does feel very real so if you have religious trauma beware it may be rough for you.

The main male character cries a few times and it's shown as a sad, emotional moment which isn't used to ridicule him.

Sort of. There's a lot of talk about darkness and light and who will win in the end. Some characters have a grim outlook on life and feel hopeless in this dark world.

The first season has a rather grim ending, but with a silver lining that the heroes will bounce back stronger and more equipped to fight again.
