Devil May Cry 01-03

Devil May Cry on ANN

I like the way they did the logo…^^

I know that from seeing comments about Devil May Cry that many are disappointed by the anime.
They felt that their expectations for the anime were not fulfilled, especially after having played the game.

As you probably may know, and for those who do not, Devil May Cry is a popular game by Capcom.

I have never played the game before, and as such i have no prior expectation for this anime, except for it being a full on action anime.

I like this anime. I found that visually, it was really appealing, storyline wise, i have to say that it is not that good.

Dante. One of the few times you see him smiling.

The story revolves around Dante, a half devil half human being. He is a well known Devil hunter however as we can see from Episode 3, he is not a cold blooded killer. He is up to his head in debts and for some reason every time he takes on a job he ends up with more debts than earning money. Poor guy. He should cut back on the flashy stuff. lol.

For an action anime, i am not really happy with the lack of action actually. It seems more like a well made drama with some cool action scenes thrown in (not really long ones, the devils seem to die really fast). The action loving part of me is screaming for MORE! hahaha

The action scenes are dynamic, and it can get your blood pumping.

Each episode is a different story and it stands on its own.

I had such a hard time capturing a strong action shot.
The scene kept changing and the characters kept moving. =) (but that is a good thing)

I like this anime. It is a good watch if you are seeking a way to pass time or if you want to be visually entertained. I would recommend it to everyone. Unless, you are scared of devils, or really want to watch only great animes.

Nicely directed, nicely done, average storyline, nice action scenes (when it actually happens), suitable sound effects, a nice opening song. I am personally happy that i started watching this anime.

Rating? 8/10 – just cos i love the style

-ra out! take care!

  1. I love this anime. Dante is one of the coolest anime character ever, and I love it the most especially when he go abuse by the “Big 3”. ha…ha….


  2. hey Ken N have you ever played before? and for the ratings, how much can u give to this anime?


  3. i know that this anime really horrible if you have played the game… however.. i have never played the game so… it was a rather enjoyable anime to me.


  4. I have played the game and found the subtitled anime while browsing online. I liked what I saw and purchased the import.
    I prefer their portrayal of Dante; being less obnoxious, more mature and calculative. It has pretty intense action scenes, but they are short and happen quickly, it took a second run to realize all that went into the first attack in the opening bar scene. (Really pushing the style meter I might add)

    The added characters from the anime seemed to blend well with the game’s characters, I wasn’t bothered by their presence and it was believable. I agree with it being like a drama with action scenes. It is not non-stop fighting without thought. The story builds up in each episode as to why people and demons are doing what they do before Dante or the others deal with them. A key part that is stressed by Dante after fighting is that humans; though not devils, can be more cruel than a devil through motive. With demon’s having simple desires and acting out in that instant, a human’s intentions are dangerously masked behind a smile. But he does not hunt humans, so they are left to burden their guilt.

    An interesting anime if you want to pass the time, I recommend it to the curious and open minded. As with any game you must separate the experience from the movie, book, or anime, nothing can replace that interaction.
