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

If you’ve never heard of Devil May Cry before and are looking for a good action anime, this is not it. If you’re a fan of the video games and want to see more stylish ass-kickery, prepare to be disappointed.

Story: Dante is running his business, performing mundane tasks for clients like demon-slaying, saving the world, the usual. Almost every episode starts and concludes one of Dante’s assigned cases, involving nasty monsters that inevitably end up dead. There is some cheap drama that focuses on a young girl whom Dante saved and a loser demon who wants to become a god, but you’re not seriously 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.
