Product Description

From the darkest realms of another dimension emerges the story of Laharl, the son of a demon overlord, and his two sidekicks: his impish servant and an angelic assassin. Awoken from a two-year, poison-induced nap, Laharl learns of his father s demise and blazes a trail of destruction on his quest to declare rule over the Netherworld. Never skimping on the wisecracks, the diabolical prince and his accomplices battle dragons, sorceresses, robots, power-hungry humans, and corrupt angels. Based on the popular adventure games, Disgaea lunges at you with a full-force attack. You can laugh, cry, scream or squirm, but you can t escape the wrath of Laharl, dood!

Amazon.com

The slapstick adventure Disgaea (2006) is based on a hit video game by Nippon Ichi. Flonne, a blond angel trainee, arrives in the Netherworld from Celestia with orders to reform the hearts of Laharl, the demon prince who's the rightful heir to the Overlord's throne, and his conniving vassal Etna. For the first eight episodes, they wander around the Netherworld as Laharl attempts to reclaim his title from various usurpers and impostors. One continuing impediment is the cartoonish Gordon, "the 37th Defender of Earth," and his buxom sidekick Jennifer. The story takes a weird, more serious twist in episode 9, when Earth attempts to conquer the Netherworld with a vast armada led by Jennifer's stepfather. Laharl, Flonne, and Etna travel to Celestia to find who really planned the invasion. Although Laharl rants and fusses and hurls thunderbolts, he's drawn in a kawaii ultra-cute style that undercuts any menace. Comic relief is provided the Prinnies, servants who look like peg-legged penguins and address everyone as "Dood"--until episode 11, when they suddenly become tragic figures. Fans of the original Disgaea game may enjoy seeing the familiar characters on a bigger screen, but the erratic story line is unlikely to hold anyone else's interest. (Rated TV PG: cartoon violence, risqué humor, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

Ratings are a guesstimate, usually on the "safe side".

Sub-genre: Comedy, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, some romance

Situations: PG
Language: Probably PG+
Nudity: PG
Violence: PG

Language options: Dub, Sub with separate on/off option. The way it should be.
Start-up ads can't be skipped, annoying!

Special Features:
Disc 2: Clean open/close. Trailers(Previews) - Ragnarok and Sgt. Frog were okay. Soul Eater, Tsubasa (actually season 2 + OVAs), Full Metal Alchemist (actually Part 3) are useless to tell what the story is about. Kaliedo Star (actually Season 2 + OVA) is almost as useless. FLCL was not good, but the series is confusing enough that trying to describe it is probably beyond the limited abilities of whoever made the ad anyway. ;p

This is an anime based on a video game (series of games actually). Unlike most in this "class" of anime, this one was actually very good. It didn't run like watching someone play the video game on your TV. Plot, character development and story developed well. Animation was a bit older/"kiddie" (think Pokemon) but the writing and direction were great. Mid and backgrounds were often excellent art. One opinion: Laharl laughs maniacally early in the series... it is one of the most pathetic maniacal laughs I've heard. You sort of get used to it as the series goes on though. Otherwise the voice acting and direction are great.

Overall I greatly enjoyed this, but I wasn't a great fan of the ending chosen. It was good, but a little unexpected. Not necessarily a bad thing I guess and it may grow on me with further viewing. As game based animes, it is one of the best I have seen and may change my mind on the whole sub-genre which I generally avoid.

I don't do games and I'm not familiar with the entertainment, but from somewhere, an advertisement for this series appealed to me. That in itself is unusual, because sadly, anime commercials nearly always fail to sell their product. This one looked a little quirkey, a little rude, and a bit on the fast-paced side, so I took a chance on it. I am glad I did. Disgaea is a fun series, full of demons who aren't quite as bad as they might be, angels and heros who aren't as good as they should be, and worlds we all can relate to. The story is nothing new, but the presentation is well done and the tale is a good one. If you like sarcastic comedy with anti-heros and anti-villians mixing it up for the sake of their own views and goals, Disgaea will entertain you.

I had previously seen the Disgaea series and just when I was considering seeking the episodes out another time at my local video rental place, I stumbled across this bundle. Fans of the games will definitely enjoy Laharl's romp in the netherworld and these few, yet highly enjoyable episodes will certainly draw new people into the video games. Memorable characters from Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness are frequent and, though the plot of the anime is different from the game it is based on, it still maintains its quirky humor that envelopes the games.

I was very impressed with the packaging and the images on the CDs are very colorful. A must have!

I love Disgaea 1 of course, but I don't usually do anime that are based on the game because it usually ends badly (not counting Pokemon). The anime takes its own spin on the game changing things up. However by doing so, some things don't end well. Etna for the most part is pretty useless now and she's just as much as a damsel in distress as Flonne is (though it's stretching it given Flonne isn't completely helpless in any of the games). Some arcs were taken out and swapped around to make room with many filler arcs. Gordon, Jennifer and Thursday are just the Team Rocket of the anime always blasting off because of some inconvenience.

Looking back now though, the episode with Maharl is funny given that the new Disgaea game Dimension 2.0 is taking that plot and putting it in the game and making it more realized (and I'm going to even say that its going to end up the same way as this anime episode).

I think the Red Moon episode is the most emotional episode in the series and makes it just as depressing. Add to the fact Mid-Boss is here makes it even more tragic.

But the ending...let's just say that they thought it would be great to take the normal ending and use it for the anime with a twist never mind that every other continuity whether it be the game or manga or novel says the good ending is canon. The normal ending is just used for shock value and disappointing people who wanted a happy ending and lowers the score.

Overall, a good anime to watch but prepare to be disappointed with the last episode (there should be more action too but...)

Alright, let's get down to business on this one. I absolutely love Disgaea, own all the games, several figures, etc. Though I have to say there's something about the Anime that doesn't give me the same warm fuzzy feeling.

Now don't get me wrong. The package shipped exactly on time. It was in perfect condition. All that jazz. Which is great, on the surface. I myself had never seen the anime before. I'd been far too enthralled with the games to even really have time for the anime. When I finally buckled down to check it out I must say I wasn't as pleased as I thought I'd be. This Anime does Disgaea a lot of justice, faithfully carrying over character's voices, attitudes, etc. as well as the settings. The story however gets a tad bit warped, but I suppose that's to be expected when a video game is translated directly into an Anime. Laharl seems, simply put, way too OP from episode one to really make the show exciting or keeping you on the edge of your seat. We can all agree Laharl is awesome and should kick butt, but I'd like to see him develop those skills (like in the game) rather than starting off as someone who can take on anything with ease. The ending definitely brought tears to my eyes, and for awhile I was engrossed, but overall it was Laharl's portrayal and some story elements that hindered this from being a 5/5.

I would suggest this to Disgaea fans who have a little extra cash to spare. Or who have already seen and loved the anime but don't yet own it. Not sure if it will ever come to Blu-Ray so having a copy of it on DVD is gonna be your best bet (for now). I wouldn't suggest this to anyone new to the Disgaea franchise. I highly suggest picking up the games instead (in this case the first one) to get a firm grasp on everything. If your friends are all huge Disgaea fans and you just need to know what the buzz is about, well then I suppose you can consider this a cliff note version of the first game but not a whole lot more.
