The game is infamously cryptic and poorly translated, so it's interesting to read a more faithful translation.

webpages. Fascinating to click around.
Kreepy Key's Halloween Horrotorium - Cool Halloween themed page with music,
recipes, movie watchlists, etc. Makes me nostalgic, and

Solflo's Lesbian Vampire Reviews - Part of a larger site but this particular page

reccomendations, "horny ratings" and more. Worth reading,

the GameBoy Pokemon games with lots of useful

An older site full of information about Castlevania: The Adventure and Belmont's Revenge!

like a museum and linked together, with lots of information about
LGBT history and art. Try using the map to explore the museum!

Why Did We Like Elfen Lied? - My favorite video essay of all time, I watch it every few months.

but it's also a reflection of the authenticity of youth fan culture and liking media that "isn't made for you".
悪魔城ドラキュラall☆starで鯨 - An incredibly animated Castlevania AMV!
Li Speaks - A channel rather than a video but it was hard to choose just one!
