This last rendition of Dracula (Dracula Untold) is not related to Castlevania, but it is so hot that I had to add it.

 Hi Evelyn,

Thanks for reaching out! HIDIVE is a streaming site that we've partnered up with to give our customers another way to view a number of titles that we have available. They do offer a free 7-day trial for new users. If you haven't checked out the site or registered with them, I would definitely recommend it.


 HIDIVE does have some of the most popular anime, and I too recommend registering for a paid account as you can then stream the English Dub. Check back for updates.

GODZILLA: Monster Planet anime to begin to begin 20,000 in Earth's Future

GODZILLA: Monster Planet

The Story:

The final summer of the 20th century… when mankind learns it is no longer the sole ruler of planet Earth.

The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the earth, and king among them is “Godzilla”. For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. But humans, unable to compete, prepare for exile from their home planet. In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government's artificial intelligence infrastructure to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-lightyear journey for the planet Tau-e in the Cetus constellation. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much different than expected, and basically uninhabitable by humans.

On youth on board the emigration vessel, Haruo, had seen his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes when he was only 4 years old. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but returning to Earth to defeat Godzilla. With the doors to emigration now closed, Haruo and other crew spearhead a “return to Earth” decision despite severely attenuated and hazardous conditions on board for such a long trip back.

Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged withatop the food chain. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?
