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

I love the Devil May Cry games (although, to be honest, I haven’t played its second installment). And, wandering hopelessly on the web, I found out it has an anime adaptation. Too bad for me though, only finding out about it just lately.

With me, who has played the Devil May Cry games, I had high expectations with this.

Story: (6/10)
It's your typical cartoon series: it has no sequence, no continuity. You can watch the first few episodes in random order and find no differences in each. I recommend you watch episodes 3, 6, 7, 8, and 9 before watching episodes 10-12. It'd be less depressing read more

Recommendations

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.
They have different plot, but both of them are action-packed and somehow doesn't follow a specific storyline.
