Great adition to the saga

Exploring a little background into what happened before the events of the movies. If you are unfamiliar with the movies, do not worry, you do not need to know the movies to enjoy the series as it is its own thing with little to no references to the movies. Little meaning Dracula's overprotective perdonality, Mavis's adventurous attitude, simple stuf like that. Tremendous animation style, enjoyable goofynessthat even adults might enjoy. Fun and entertaining, not jaring at alland since it does not have huge overarching plots, you can get into the series at any moment, wether you enjoy the movies or not, the series is without a doupt amazing. It may have some inconsistencies with the first movie because Mavis according to the movies never meat humans before the movie and the show has her interacting with some, but no big damage and it can be explained in ways that make sence. So What are you waiting for?
