Love the games? you'll hate this!

by

watched on netflix years ago
one would expect lots of stylized violence and gore. accompanied by demonology from various world religions, and some cool lines and character types, with lots of bad jokes. Namely our protagonist Dante, who's always got the wrong thing to say.

The anime has NONE OF THIS. The characters all act identical save a young girl whos only objective is to be a noisy nuisance, and Dante who looses all his charm from the games and is reduced to a punching bag for the rest of the cast. Action sequences are short lived and unremarkable, environments are repetitive, and an overarching story is hardly recognized or deemed as necessary. Or maybe thats how i felt with all the dozing off, waking up and rewinding to catch what happened. Even the finale was uninspired (if i remember right it was merely a Deus Ex Machina bit).

Great

I watched this series a long time ago when it was on Netflix and I enjoyed it. Missed the first release but luckily Right Stuf had it. Great find. I wish it got picked up for more episodes. This series is probably an acquired taste for some. Kinda of slow to start, not super action packed but still a good watch. The DVD case is compact and plain but holds it all together just fine.

Forget the video games, watch the ANIME!

To be fair, I've never played any of the Devil May Cry video games. But I love this anime. Maybe this character of Dante doesn't match the game, but who cares? It's still a great character. There's a lot of action and some really beautiful femme fatales who kick ass in their own right, and sorts of wierdo-demons who get exactly what's coming to them. Great entertainment, and like all SAVE editions, a bargain price!

Kinda disappointing but can be alright sometimes

MADHOUSE adapts Devil May Cry as a Neo-noir, Case-of-the-Week-style anime and doesn't pull it off. This looks good in stills, some characters are likeable, it has some decent plots. However, fights & conversations often happen offscreen. Cameras focus on other people, or pan slowly so they don't have to show mouths. Battles are brief and often suggested by gunfire, or heard while a character cowers behind a table. Dante also misses "Cool" alot and comes off as boring.

DMC is like a weird anthology; stories about people & demons with Dante injected in. Not bad, but worse than similar shows. Structurally this is like a Space Dandy: here's our heroes at their hangout, their job/mission this week is (blank). Stuff like Hellsing, GunGrave, Black Lagoon, etc. DMC isn't terrible - it expands the IP okay - but it's cheaply done and doesn't compare well to other shows. The Set is 12 eps across 3 discs with a well-produced dub & sub, and it has a nice reversible cover, like many SAVE Editions.
