Devil May Cry: The Animated Series: Is it Worth It or Worst?

A Devil May Cry Game into an Anime? Really? H-How? H-How did you make this game into an anime. I-I-- (sigh)... Alright... Just, let me review this anime...

Devil May Cry: The Animated Series... Is by far, THE WORST ANIME THAT I'VE WATCHED IN MY LIFE... FROM MADHOUSE ENTERTAINMENT?! REALLY? THE ONE WHO GAVES US DEATH NOTE, AND KISEIJUU COMES WITH THIS HORRIFYING PIECE OF S... Ahh... Fuu-- (sigh) okay... Okay... Settle down, Vaas... Just... Let me...

I'm not surprised one bit. No, really I'm not. It's a video game to anime/movie translation. Normally, these types of projects are horrible anyway. I'm sure many people know that this is based on the game of the same name, as it followed Dante completing missions by exterminating demons in some very stylish ways. Unfortunately, although the demon killing is present in the series. The greatness that was found in the games is completely lost. Those out there who sat through the Street Fighter Alpha series, Fatal Fury movies, or heaven forbid Art of Fighting. More than likely shouldn't be surprised and already have an 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

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? 
reportRecommended by Graygoose124
Both are about a guy who is kind of a loner. They both use guns to do their work. 
reportRecommended by darkmoonuni
They have different plot, but both of them are action-packed and somehow doesn't follow a specific storyline. 
reportRecommended by kurohaneul
Both main characters own buisnesses. Every episode is a different mission, basically. They both hunt for bounties. In that respect they are very similar

The stories are really different
(e.g.: storyline
[DMC is just a little slice of Dantes life, there isn't much is known about his past,
Trigun is a full story, including his past, reasons, etc.]),
but the protagonists shows resemblance to each other.

Dante and Vash have several similarities, including but not limited to:
-like the lone wolf role, but both have fellows
-long red coat
-marksmanship skills
-custom handgun(s)
-personal sense of justice that prevents them from killing humans
-non-human aura with a human appearance
-an evil, identical twin brother

(ps.: Interestingly Vash english voice actor is Johnny Yong Bosch  read more
