SynopsisDevil May Cry follows the story of the demon hunter known as Dante. As a half demon, half human, he uses his trusty sword Rebellion and his two guns Ebony and Ivory to take on missions. Dante owns and runs "Devil May Cry," a business that specializes in hunting and killing demon-related problems.
Based on the video game series "Devil May Cry."
Characters & Voice Actors
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 is hired to do some sort of mission, leading up to at least one would-be epic fight scene, and I can't help but compare many parts to what would be seen in Cowboy Bebop, not to mention Dante being a bounty hunter himself. You might not see it the same way, but I can't help but see it as a watered-down version of Cowboy Bebop.
The biggest problem with the show is that the fight scenes are nothing like what they should be. In an action show, the viewer's interest in supposed to peak at the heart of each episode, which in the case of Devil May Cry, is the episode's "boss battles". While Dante is MEANT to make his job look easy, there's no such thing as a good fight in this show. A bullet or two in the face of a demon (followed by a waterfall of Kool-Aid blood pouring out of said demon's face) is enough to defeat any enemy of Dante's. As challenging as the games are, players know that no fight is that easy. Dante is never given a challenge; he's never even touched by a single enemy. Nobody else even has the slightest chance of keeping up with him. Yeah, Dante is supposed to be badass, but the fight scenes aren't nearly as enjoyable as they should be because of every battle being played on easy mode with no chance of Dante even getting a scratch on him at any point.
The music isn't as loveable as I had hoped for it to be, and the visual quality is sub-par as well, but maybe that's just my high standards speaking. Being familiar with the characters, I guess I could say I was satisfied with the way they were in the show, and the day-by-day slice of life style in the episodes is a nice way for an idea like Devil May Cry to be played out, with each episode having its own story. If you're a die-hard DMC fan with tolerance for nearly any anime, there's no real reason not to check this out, but if you're expecting a great show with action to introduce you to Devil May Cry, stay away from this and go play the games... except for the terrible Ninja Theory reboot, of course. read more
In both series, the protagonist is a powerful person of demonic origin, dressed in red, who is nearly invincible, has superhuman abilities and two big handguns of different colors. He is employed by humans to fights other demons in exceptionally gory and stylish way on a daily basis. The animation style is also somewhat similar.
Both anime have wicked red-clothed protagonists who are some kind of demon fighting against their own kind for the sake of humans. Both anime involve a lot of bloodshed, tons of firepower and insane moves.
Its all about demons.. about super duper hero who kills in no time.. :D ;)
Both have incredibly lazy but superpowerful main characters. Both battle demons/vampires constantly. Both don't have a very well developed main plot, view more for entertainment than story.
Both main characters are fighting against demons or vampires. And both main characters are very silent, but strong and demon/vampire thereselve.
Alucard and Dante are very similar to each other. First at all they have big guns and great powers; they're also bored and want to find an equal opponent and perfect competition. If you like characters who get involved in crazy fights with monsters, these are a good choice.
About blood demons things Devil May Cry have more action in it but they as some same quality try it!
Both main characters aren't fully humans. Both Alucard and Dante work for people as vampires/demons exterminators and love to shoot. They spread fear and destruction by hand of their two pistols. Plot isn't too developed, both anime are rather bloody exchange of fire.
Se trata tambien de Vampiros! Para todos aquellos que disfrutar ver el poder que pueden tener los vampiros en los animes este Hellsing se los recomiendo!
Really Similar Stories, Short, Bloody and Violent, Cool Main Characters, Adult Language
The only major difference is Devil May Cry adds a little emotional touch after every Episode and Hellsing doesn't
Both anime are dark, both deal with the supernatural, in Hellsing theres vampires and in DMC theres demons.
In both anime protagonist are male demon, propably unvaliable to kill and it fights for mankind against it's own kind.
If you liked the bloody moments in hellsing you will like the bloody moments in Devil May Cry.These to animes have guns, blood and good outfits.
both of the main characters(Dante and Alucard)have some special abilities.They cannot be killed easily,like humans.they protect one girl.They are hunters,that kill vampires,ghosts etc.
They are both fighting monsters, the main characters are similar. They fight the monsters of their same kind and there is alot of blood and good action. Both use guns. They are both short too but they are both great.
In both the main character fights his own kind. There's alot of blood shed and supernatural things in both.
Dark action, monsters, super immortal protagonist
In both animes the main characters are wearing a red coat, both are very cool and are almost invincible... and they have guns
Who doesn't love supernatural horror? Especially when you add a distinctly badass anti-hero with a dark side.
If you are a fan of mindless fighting, thilling action and amazing graphics this is it for you. Adrenaline rush down to your bones.
Both series involve a main character with a mysterious past and they both have a tendency to use firearms to protect themselves and others. These series aren't for the weak-stomached however and you should be aware of this before watching either shows.
The protagonists of both stories are demon/vampire hunters . They are both badass looking :3
Overpowerful and basically immortal main character, with supernatural fights
Both have badass main characters who are loners and are very cruel in enjoying their massacres. That's about the whole story right?
Both series are dark and have a main character who does what he wants and to heck with everyone else.
If you like blood/gore and violence then you'll like these two
In both of these anime series, there is violence, gore, action, drama, and involves a world of monstrosity.
The main male protagonist in both series is in fact very independent, skilled, and is able to handle situations at their own expenses. They kill monsters in a cruel way but at the same time wishes to protect someone close to them.
Both series has a similar setting and a dark atmosphere throughout each episode.
Like Dante the main character (Alucard) isnt human but instead vampire which needs to defeat other monsters (vampires)
Dante and Alucard are both very strong characters and they have similarities, their clothing is similar and even how they reload their gun by using their mouth
Hellsing Ultimate is a very good anime, only 10 episodes but they are 45-60 minutes each. Each character in Hellsing Ultimate is great, even the villains
PSI prefer Hellsing Ultimate alot more as the previous show Hellsing, if you want to watch Hellsing you should definatly not skipp Ultimate
Similar feel to it,gore,both characters immortal-ish,both use guns.
But Hellsing has way more gore, and is a (way) better anime.
