Come to think of it, Claire Stanfield (the Rail Tracer) embodies both the human world and the monster world. As a matter of fact, with his attitude and acrobatic prowess (and a disguise), Claire could practically pass himself off as a vampire. Just so long as nobody asks him to change into a bat.
Last, I just noticed that Mavis is so different yet so alike to Chane. Both are brunettes who know so little about the world beyond thier families (albiet Chane is more stoic on that subject). They have a father who has lived for a long time, only while Mavis is just as "immortal" as Dracula, Chane doesn't have the luxury of sharing her dad's immortality. Plus, as a father, Dracula is everything Huey Lavoret isn't.
That's what I meant by "stoic", that Chane is more subtle than Mavis. Actually, another thing that sets Chane and Mavis apart: Chane is loyal and protective towards her Dad, almost like she's clinging to him like the little girl she is. Mavis, on the other hand, is willing to leave and see the world like any full grown woman (even though she loves her dad too).
And when you say Claire is a little more bloodthirsty, I say "my point exactly". That's what I meant when I said Claire could practically pass himself off as a vampire. If he were soaked in enough blood, he could comfortably stride into Hotel Transylvania, like he were Zeus taking his rightful place in Mt. Olympus.
And speaking of comparissions between this movie and anime shows, sometimes I wonder what would happen if they add a touch of that anime "Hellsing".
Would you suppose "Alucard" would have a daughter named "Sivam"? Unlike her "Hotel Transylvania" counterpart, she could be sassy, cool, venomous, dresses like a girly lolita, and distrusts humans. But her redeeming qualities are that she is merciful and fights fair with her opponents.
*dead of teh cute* I only just got around to watching this movie(thank you, Redbox), and I absolutely adore these two. I love the way Mavis has her hand buried in Jonathan's hair(that's exactly what I'd do in her shoes XD).
I think I shall go forth and favorite all these other lovely HT artworks I see in your gallery. :3 So I apologize in advance for favespam(and if I don't comment on one, it probably just means it's so perfect I can't think coherently ).
