Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice Video Game Trailer
Top Customer Reviews
Sub-genre: Comedy, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, some romance
Language: Probably PG+
Language options: Dub, Sub with separate on/off option. The way it should be.
Start-up ads can't be skipped, annoying!
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.Read more ›
I was very impressed with the packaging and the images on the CDs are very colorful. A must have!
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...)
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.

I rather enjoyed the series. I don't plan to go into a series breakdown, so I will just talk about the unit itself. It's a DVD box. Not really much to say about it. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Daniel
