Patty Lowell—the lost heir of a prestigious family—is found at an orphanage, and J.D. Morrison brings her to his acquaintance Dante, the owner of a business called "Devil May Cry." Dante takes on so-called "odd jobs," and at Morrison's request, he agrees to become a bodyguard for Patty. Begrudgingly, he sets out to deliver Patty to her family, though he is a bit annoyed with a job that essentially amounts to babysitting.

While Dante seems like a lazy good-for-nothing, he is actually a prolific demon hunter, which comes in handy when demons begin pursuing Patty. Soon enough, Dante realizes that there is more to this case than meets the eye, and he makes use of his particular skill set in order to keep Patty safe.

I always heard this was bad and I even tapped out ages ago after a couple episodes calling it "boring".

But now I appreciate it. A tight 12 episodes, mostly episodic but with an overarcing plot that manages to tie in with the one-offs nicely.

The animation is your typical mid-2000s Madhouse production - good - and I even spotted a little studio called ORANGE in the credits for CGI assistance - a few clunky moments of odd/bad blending or obvious repeated models aside, that is.

The writing staff, headed by veteran tokusatsu screenwriter Toshiki Inoue, has a couple other veterans of stuff like Cowboy Bebop and Ghost ...

Mixed Feelings
This is a bit of an odd show for me to talk about. On the one hand, looking at it critically is pretty difficult. It's based on a game series that I really like, and they really do the games justice, and trying to look at it critically makes me feel like I'm nitpicking issues that didn't really impact my enjoyment at the end of it all. However, I do want to be somewhat fair with it, so I'll give them two ratings: one as a fan of the games, and one just looking at it as is.

As a fan of the games, the show ...

I am a fan of the game series except dmc 2 of course
I can't understand how capcom didn't sue madhouse due to the poor execution
and how could a studio such madhouse play cheap when it gets to something as the great devil may cry series, they should be ashamed
oh my let's start with the opening, if madhouse took divine hate or taste your blood and made amv quality job I would be happy, but no they settled not only on still images but they added the most annoying guitar I heard in my life
Moving on to the battles, how hard is it to animate most ...
