Editorial Reviews

Devil May Cry is one of the biggest combat game franchises of all time, with millions of devoted fans. Now the Devil May Cry anime takes fans deeper into the story of the half-demon Dante and his fight against evil.

Customer Reviews

My only complaint is that the dialouge in parts is REALLY cheesey!

I love DMC from the games to the books and I like the anime... I just wish the all the stories would match up.

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. For those who've read the graphic novels, you'll be pleased to know that the anime has taken the literature into consideration as per "Tony Redgrave" carved into those power pistols, 'Ebony & Ivory', he's packing. If you're a fan of Devil May Cry then you definately don't want to miss this Dante with all the attitude that you know him for.

Format: DVD
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.

Fans of the games may be disappointed that Dante doesn't exhibit much of what he does in the games (such as Devil Trigger or various weapon types), but that doesn't factor into my score in the slightest. Just thought I'd include it as a caveat for those who DO care, tho'.

This is great.
Most anime get their own video game AFTER having a series.
Devil May Cry, however is another example of how good an anime series coming FROM a video game is.
Gungrave is the only other "game to anime" series I can think of.
And both Gungrave and DMC, both Capcom games, have been transformed into some of the best anime of all time. I really wish there were more games that took this route.

Do NOT think for a second that this game or anime are the typical "make an anime, shoot some crapware out" anime to video game regularity.

This is one for any anime fan and any devil may cry fan.
Great writing, top notch animation, and tons of fresh, fun, originality that makes this anime stand out among the crowd.

Five Stars.
Locked and Loaded.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rich(アニメとゲームが優先!!) on September 19, 2008
Format: DVD
While this series is only 13 episodes they were all very good and entertaining. To those who have played the game you will see some of the other characters like Trish and Lady as well as a new character for the anime Patty Lowell who in the first episode is being protected by Dante to make sure she gains her supposed inheritance from her father. The English voice actors for Dante, Trish, and Patty were good but sadly the one for Lady was just terrible it seemed like she just read the lines from the script with either little or no feelings at all so it's probably best to watch most of these episodes subbed instead. Still all in all the shows still good and I'm definitely getting the last dvd in October so for all Devil May Cry fans who'd like to see Dante fighting an a few more life defying moments these episodes are the ones to watch...

Format: DVD
Ah, the Devil May Cry anime. Where to start... well the anime takes place in between Devil May Cry 1 and 4, and it works to bridge the two stories together. Each episode has it's own story, with a series-long storyline in the background until the last couple of episodes. The great part about this series is that it shows Dante's life as a demon mercenary rather than him inadvertently following in Sparda's footsteps in defeating a major threat. Madhouse and Capcom did a great job appealing to fans as well, as they brought back Lady and Trish for the storyline. There is quite a bit of character development in Dante's sidekick in the series, Patty, but other than that the recurring characters are the same that fans know and love.

I give this anime a 4 out of 5 only because I wish there were more episodes and I wanted to see a bit more of what Dante exhibits in the video games. Other than that a must-see!
