Devil May Cry is a strange anime. It does one thing rather nice but utterly fails in another. I have no idea why or how that happened.

Story? Well, you might as well forget it, since you won't get any for about 9 episodes in a row. Yes, it's almost a slice-of-life series about Dante being cool. That's right, it has pretty much less of a story than the series of video games the setting is actually based on! Furthermore, at several points, you get an impression that some general plot will emerge (it eventually does, but already after you lose all hope for it), but read more

This anime is barely worth a review, let alone even a few measly words. The plot practically revolves around Dante being an apathetic badass with his cheesy as hell punchlines. No structure to the plot what so ever I tell you. One could even say this was an episodic anime for it's lack of a structured plot with continuity. I haven't played the game, but simply put this is probably nothing but an effortless promo for the game. Take some advertising advice from old spice damn producers, at least they know what the hell they're doing.

As a huge fan of the Devil May Cry franchise, I felt obligated to at least give the anime a chance. I didn't expect much, and to say the least, that's what I got.

There's nothing extraordinary about the show, no specific highlights worth mentioning or anything that sets it aside from other anime, while at the same time, there's nothing I could say is actually 'bad' about it either. The dub quality is good, and the familiar voices are enjoyable for those like me who love the Devil May Cry games, and even the personalities are on point. Each episode follows a scenario where Dante read more
