Product Description

Devil May Cry: The Complete Series Box Set

The violent fantasy-adventure Devil May Cry (2007) is based on the popular Playstation 2 game. Dante, the taciturn, perenially broke anti-hero of the program, lives on pizza, beer, and strawberry sundaes. He spends his time slouched on a couch reading trashy magazines. But when someone brings a case to the Devil May Cry Detective Agency, he goes into action--he needs the money. Everyone's problems can be traced back to the demons that infest wherever it is the show takes place. Using pistols and a broadsword, Dante swiftly reduces his foes to so much demon tartare. Rounding out the cast are Lightning and Lady, two allied demon fighters, and blonde orphan Patty. When the original Devil May Cry game was released, critics complained that the characters were underdeveloped, a problem that carries over to the series. Dante may be murderously competent, but he's so understated, he leaves a vaccuum at the center of the show. He lacks the complexity and appeal of his obvious models, Spike Speigel in Cowboy Bebop and Vash the Stampede in Trigun. Lightning and Lady exist only to provide fan service shots, and Patty's obnoxious fussing seems to be someone's notion of comic relief. Devil May Cry will appeal to hormonal adolescent boys and hardcore fans of the game; viewers in search of a stylish, engaging anime series should look elsewhere. (Rated TV MA: suitable for ages 16 and older: considerable violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, profanity, potentially offensive religious and sexual content, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Cursed to live as both monster and man, Dante must spend his life fighting the demonic forces of darkness.

Brandishing his sword, Rebellion, and his always-loaded guns, Ebony and Ivory, Dante is more than happy to send the demons back to hell - especially when there's money to be made. The wildly popular video game is now a series, and this time, there's no sympathy for the devil.

Contains the entire 12 episode series in a thinpack box set.
Disc one contains the first nine missions:

01. Devil May Cry
02. Highway Star
03. Not Love
04. Rolling Thunder
05. In Private
06. Rock Queen
07. Wishes Come True
08. Once Upon A Time
09. Death Poker

While Disc two has the following missions, as well as several extra features:

10. The Last Promise
11. Showtime!
12. Stylish!

Devil May Cry is an anime adapted from a popular video game franchise that only augments its appeal with hard core edgy action, power house horror shoot'em ups and lethal women adding to the fan service and attraction of the animated series.

The story centers on Dante. He looks like a cross between a bounty hunter from a post apocalyptic film and a rock star. He's cool but also lazy, has a penchant for strawberry sundaes and spends what money comes his way on liquor and sweets. He may not seem in personality like a hard core killer of demons, but when the devils show up, he's all action with flippant one-liners and an irreverent attitude. He goes on one strange case after another that usually sees him by the end looking down a barrel of one of his big guns or whipping out his wicked sword to mete out bloody comeuppance on the evil carnage mongers he's set upon.

First and foremost, you do not necessarily have to like the video game series to enjoy this anime adaptation. It is a good shoot 'em up, kill all the demons, bloody and violent action/horror fest. Most of the episodes are self-contained, so you should not go into watching this series thinking it is going to be really linear. Of course, some of the episodes will be connected but the episodes are generally stand alone. Nonetheless, I would recommend this series to fans of action packed gore fests, supernatural/demonic/horror-related stuff, and of course, fans of the video game series.

On a side note, I found that the audio and video quality of this Blu-ray version was noticeably better than the DVD version and is a worthy upgrade, in my opinion.

WARNING! Not recommended for any one scared of: swearing, animated blood, violence, or those who think every series needs a air-headed damsel in distress (this IS a warning, as this anime has a 'Lady' who is scarier then hell itself!).

It's been about 4-5 years now since I started playing any of the Devil may cry games, But by GOD*, the anime version is good! (*& I don't mean any sissy Greek/Norse gods either), & For those who are unfamiliar with Dante, here's a summery:
He's a 'professional' Demon hunter with A huge sword & 2 guns that never run out of lead.
Has a partner Devil Demon huntress (Trish), & a rival Huntress (Lady), whom he owes ... some 6+ digit amount to...
Has a strange love for Pizza & Strawberry sundaes...
He's extremely hot when not wearing a shirt. ;).... Anyways.....

1)Why is it good? 2)what edition is the most Stylish? Read on....

1)The PLOT:...(actually it's just 5 of my favorite episodes, but it's still something)....

The opening of the 1st episode, 'Devil May Cry', starts out seeing Dante going into a bar, ordering a strawberry sundae, & inquiring about rumored demon activity in the area... right around the place he entered actually. Sure enough, the bar-tender & his patrons are all demons, & a cool DMC style fight scene breaks out... & I haven't even gotten to the main plot yet!
Next day, back at his office, He gets a request to escort a young orphaned girl called Patty to a mansion so she can claim her lost inheritance, A simple job, so why are so many demons after her?

This is a pretty good anime. While the store is not that well done, the action scenes are pretty great. The overall quality of the bluray is also decent. The quality could have been a lot better. Sound is good but not perfect. I would recommend buying this only if your a fan of action anime and don't care too much about plot and character development because those aren't that well done in this anime.

The special features are basically devil may cry cut-scenes and music videos from the new game. Theres one directors video and another music video from the anime. I don't see any reason for buying this if you already own the anime on Dvd.

Great series, a little slow to begin but most anime is that way. Some really awesome animation, very detailed and the blu ray quality is top notch. There is definitely an underlying plot that kept my interest throughout. Although not much of this plot is revealed, I was completely entertained and watched the whole thing in a day or two. Can't wait for more!

Whats the diff between this and the bluray release?
Usually the DVD release is older and more rare so the price is increased a lot for collectors. Blu-Ray is more modern so have plenty of stock and less discs means lower production cost also. For more modern anime Blu-Ray versions have higher resolution (better picture quality) and also better... Read More
