An ok show given the problems it underwent in pre-production.
7 January 2004 | by (Yonkers, New York) – See all my reviews

Ah, yes. "DarkStalkers". Yet another attempt to capitalize on Capcom's overwhelming success in the 90's. Another example of this was the superior Street Fighter animated series loosely based on the movie, the story was altered a bit; but that series had much better production value.

The problem with "Darkstalkers" was that in pre-production Kenzo Tsujimoto (Capcom's Marketing, Producing guy)wasn't quite sure how to go with the show in terms of its target audience. The US.

Thus we were given a sometimes hammy perspective on the Capcom game in which monster archtypes beat the crap out of each other. The animation was sub-par, as befits Graz Entertainment; the team responsible for a great animated series show called "X-Men". To the dislike of many fans of the game, the introduction of an original character named Harry Grimore (The descendant of a powerful sorcerer)made the show even more hammy.

Also, they were numerous odd lines and undertones in the show; some of which were always funny to hear. Lines like "Even though you are curiously attractive...for a fish-man" were constantly uttered even by male characters such as Donovan, Anakaris.

In the end, the show turned out to be a failure lasting only one season, although there are a few fans out there such as myself.
