An angel arrives in Hell! A demon lord is awakened! There are penguins everywhere! What’s going on here?

Angel assassin-in-training Flonne is on a quest to destroy the demon Overlord. Instead of accomplishing her mission, the ditzy Flonne manages to wake Laharl, the demon lord and heir to the throne, from his two year slumber. Now the pair, along with Laharl’s not-so-faithful vassal Etna and her army of explosive souls in penguin costumes, must restore order to the crumbling Netherworld.

Based on the events of the game Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Makai Senki Disgaea follows Laharl’s journey to squash the demon rebellion, reclaim the throne, and destroy anyone who stands in his path. Or, you know, let them join him on his travels if they really want. Just remember: Laharl is a demon lord. There’s no way he’ll ever show kindness, compassion, or love... right?


A preview animation of Makai Senki Disgaea included with the game Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories.

Ohayoo! This is my first anime and my english is bad , so excuse me for my \'lame\' writing...
I\'ll review this anime with the 6 elements available.

First comes the story: As we all know the set is from the PS2 game. The plotline its easy to understand and very enjoyable to watch closely, but it\'s nothing special afterall.

Art: Ok, here comes the great dilemma - the 3d is great integrated in the TV series, the character art is great, the landscape is very good, but i think something is missing. Maybe if there where more details i guess

The sound is average. Its pleasurable, i ...

Mixed Feelings
The Disgaea franchise is, generally speaking, fantastic. They're RPGs with a strong sense of humour & endearing characters. Sort of like another RPG franchise that I reviewed an anime based off of. The anime for this came out in '06 from OLM. That's right, the Gunsmith Cats, Steel Angel Kurumi 2 & Pokemon studio. Let's see how they managed with this one. 


we open with an angel, Flonne, faffing about in the underworld to assassinate its king. She comes across the king's son, Laharl, who was poisoned and left in a casket. She heals him and the pair swiftly learn that his father died while he ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Riding off the coattails of the game, the Disgaea's anime adaptation doesn't do the ps1 classic any justice at all.
I understand that this was made in 2006, but old doesn't equal bad. There are many anime, movies, and films that are very good even when they're old, even in just a technical aspect. Maybe for it's time, it was OK, but that just doesn't cut it when I'm watching something a whole 16 years later.
I guess I understand that this was aimed at kids that just played the game or something, but clearly, there's a lack of quality put into both the dialogue and the ...

I think the Light Novels would do really well as an anime.
