Neon Genesis Evangeli- I mean, Devil Survivor 2 the Animation, is a great example of an adaptation from a video game to television gone wrong. Having beaten the video game myself, this anime adaptation was a severe disappointment from start to finish in many off-putting ways. The writing in this anime is childish as it constantly uses well-known clichés, character archetypes who never develop past their cardboard cut-out selves, spills melodrama all over the floor, and everything feels rushed and unconvincing. It is rather, to put it simply, a monstrosity. Now, the story of the video game wasn’t exactly original nor was it interesting, so read more

I had my share of problems with Persona 4's anime adaptation. Actually, I had a truckload of problems with it. Scratch that, I was finding stuff to complain about every single episode. And yet, I look back on it and think "oh wow they actually didn't do that badly, considering they condensed a 70-hour RPG into 25 episodes". Indeed, Devil Survivor 2: The Animation served to put Persona 4 into perspective for me. In spite of all its issues, it really didn't do that much wrong. The story was well developed, the characters all got their moments to shine, and there was still time left read more

I was very excited when I heard a Devil Survivor 2 anime was in the works, having recently played and loved the DS game on which it's based. Watching it now, I can say that my feelings for the anime are overall good, if somewhat more mixed than I had anticipated. I'm certainly enjoying it, but there are a few places it seems to fall a little flat.

The anime looks and sounds great. The art is solid; the characters and demons look exactly as they do in the game and the animation is never not satisfying in the action sequences. The voice actors all fit read more

You know you're in for a ride when you read that first line of the synopsis and realize that the world is about to end thanks to some mysterious invaders. These invaders are called Septentriones want one thing: your life. It all takes place on the holy day of Sunday where the lives of the main characters are in danger. Why? Because the world is about to end and their only chance now is to survive. That's right....

Welcome to the world of Devil Survivor 2, where survival is a word that you'll be hearing more than meets the eye.

The series is based off the video read more

Anime: Persona 4 The Animation
Both are adaptions of Shin Megami Tensei games that revolve around demon summoning and an awesome protagonist.

Anime: Z/X: Ignition
Similarities:

Both involves creatures from another world to cause chaos in man's world.

Both involves a group of individuals who control such other worldly creatures to fight their own kind.

Both also has that gov't conspiracy thing going on.

Dissimilarities:

In one anime a person may have 2 or more other worldly creature in his disposal, while in the other anime.........we're yet to find out.

People in control of their other worldly creatures uses cellphones to control them, while in the other anime they have special cards and sometime their pet may question their master's intention.

"Dude, you're so way dead unless you do something to change it," your cellphone suddenly tells you. "Oh, and don't worry about the whole supporting cast having more interesting personalities than you, the main character. They get no screentime, anyway. BTW, the world is totally ending, so have fun with that!"

Anime: Durarara!!
In general, both series has a similar background with a supernatural feeling. The characters from both series also gets caught up in various events that changes their lives.

Both series' setting also are similar in a metro like city. In fact, both series starts off at a setting involving a train/subway station.

Both series has supernatural elements so expect some elements to be not so normal. There is action from what that comes from.

Finally, the visuals from Durarara!! and DS2 shares somewhat similar designs in terms of their characters and settings.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Both series feature Japan being invaded by a group of extraterrestrial creatures and a group of teenagers that are employed to fight them using creatures similar to them by a clandestine government organization that is using the alien invasion to further their own hidden agenda.

Anime: Digimon Tamers
Believe it or not, Devil Survivor 2 and Digimon Tamers are probably the closest anime in terms of similar themes you'll find.

In both of the shows, creatures are appearing out of no where in Japan and causing havoc. In DS2, the ones who take care of these are the summoners, while in DT they are the tamers. In DS2 they use a variation of demons from folklore, stories and the such, while in Digimon Tamer it gets to the point where the enemies are based on folklore and legends as well. In DS2, you can almost consider the demons to be 'digital' as  read more
