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

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

Can you name a single video game that was turned into a movie that wasn't an extremely terrible film that failed in all regards? Now can you name a good videogame that was turned into an anime that wasn't terrible? Alright...you can probably name a whole bunch, alot from the choose-your-own-adventure genres. However Devil May Cry is more like a terrible video game movie. If you've ever played, or seen someone play, Devil May Cry then you know the style of the game quite well. The quality and feel of the anime is nothing like that of the original videogame.

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 have badass main characters who are loners and are very cruel in enjoying their massacres. That's about the whole story right?
They have different plot, but both of them are action-packed and somehow doesn't follow a specific storyline.
Both are about a guy who is kind of a loner. They both use guns to do their work.
Both main characters own buisnesses. Every episode is a different mission, basically. They both hunt for bounties. In that respect they are very similar
