Four awesome episodes

on 12/17/2012

The demon-hunter now stars in his own anime. This exciting new tale follows Dante between the two great hits; Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 4, as a pizza-munching, strawberry sundae-eating sword-for-hire willing to take almost any job to pay off is debts. You'll see a couple of familiar characters from the games as well as a few new ones.

Devil May Cry

on 9/15/2013

This volume contains the first four episodes of a twelve-part series of quasi-disconnected stories that basically depict Dante's daily life and standard devil-hunting jobs, two aspects that are not explored in the games. For this alone, fans of the game series and most particularly of Dante himself will want to check out at least the first volume, but the anime stands on its own fairly well. There is only one glaring flaw that brings it down--throughout all twelve episodes (ten individual stories and one two-part finale), the good guys are never properly challenged. That is the only aspect that can truly be called a disappointment, and because the series is not very unique or deep (of course it's not deep, it's barely half the size of a standard TV series's single season!), it's probably not for anyone who's not already a fan of the games. That said, the animation is top notch and the English dub is definitely one of the better anime dubs I've come across, utilizing the full talents of the videogames' current voice actors to full effect. Dante is particularly good, perfectly portrayed. The four episodes on this disc are all good ones, in my humble opinion, so the volume is definitely worth the buy if you didn't already get it in the Devil May Cry 4 Collector's Edition.

Product Overview

Cursed by his half monstrous, half human nature, Dante must spend his life fighting the forces of darkness - demons, big ones, sly ones, smelly ones, crafty ones, sexy ones.

Everyone knows demons come in all shapes and sizes, and somebody's got to send'em back to hell. Luckily, none are too thinkskinned for his bloodthristy sword, Rebellion, or too fast for his always loaded guns, Ebony & Ivory. And Dante's all too happy to do it. Especially if there's money involved.

So join Dante, Lady, Trish, and all the spawns of hell you can handle. Because the widly popular shoot em up is now a blast of a series. And this time, there's no sympathy for the devil.

Contains episodes 1-4!
