Synopsis

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?

Background

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 read more

This is worth watching whether or not you've played the game, for Playstation 2 because the plot takes some significant divergances, which I found to be an interesting alternate storyline. (The ending is still very much similar, but how they get there is different enough)

The story, in large part is very episodic, so a lot of the time "real" character development doesn't happen. There are, however, a couple of parts where there's some "real" development, generally in the beginning and end, I would say. Though it's generally lighthearted, it has its serious points as well.

The characters, I think, are pretty lovable. Ok, not Gordon. But read more

Never have I found a better situation in which to use the letters L-O-L. This short series based of a popular game title gives the aura of a "quest anime" where a group of people (usually under aged little kids or teens) have to travel far and wide to obtain some magnificent treasure. Luckily this isn't one of those dry lengthy traveling series that lack comedy, this anime keeps the humor rolling and displays the most eccentric of characters. The ending was also as well pretty good, with an unseen twist to the very dramatic side. And I stress the word VERY.

I give this 10/10. read more

First of all - Anime is based on Sony Playstation 2 game, with same title.
I watched this series after playing sequel of Disgaea game, so I already know about some things in Netherworld. But if someone haven't played it, could have problems with understand some things at the beggining.

Makai Senki Disgaea is comedy with supernatural powers. Young trainee angel Flonne was send to Netherworld, home of devils to assassinate king of this world. After long searching she founds he's son, in deep slumber. When she woke him young Devil, Laharl is trying to take his place as King of Netherworld after death of father.
