THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Finally, Hinako debuts. Her outfit looks great and definitely an eye catcher imo :3

I think the soundtrack withe the various beasts present in this episode was alright. One of the reminded me of a minotaur.



Shit got real this episode again with a lot of spirit fighting from what I can see. I kinda enjoyed watching that. I guess this game really is dangerous and about survival now. Well, I liked this episode :>

Whoa Inazagi?? WTH Keita T__T I started liking you. Damn they couldn't prevent his death. Getting intense.

Edit: I just realized Keita isn't in the Ending song : 0

Keita died this early/late well fuck, that didn't happen at that particular time in the game. Sounds like they aren't taking the Daichi route for sure.

The enemy brainwashed the one that made JP systems, guess she is alive thought and the enemy is strong too.
Keita died early.
Yeah I also wonder what is going to happens at the next episode.

Wow, did not expect that. Didn't particularly like him but I thought they were doing triumphant. So unless AO magically revives him, the options are: King Maker, Meritocracy or anime original.

I'm actually glad that they killed someone off, especially since I didn't find Desu2 to be as suspenseful or atmospheric on the 'surviving' part as Desu1. I'm still scared for my fave characters though.

Also, Keita is not in the ED anymore woah as the show goes on I bet the ED's gonna be pretty empty.

They may go for anime original ending, they are already changing a lot of things.

Still Im not mad they killed Keita, he died on my 1st playthrough too.

As long as someone kills Ronaldo I'm happy. Anime Hibiki feels too badass to go for the Ronaldo route, he clearly knows everyone is not equal

I have a bad feeling this will have a kill em all ending and only Hibiki, Daichi, and Io will survive.

Whoa, that Keita character died!

I love that how he looks like Kanji from Persona 4, and the devil that protects the Kanno girl is like the a girl version of Izanagi!

I knew it, the missing programmer is the culprit. Can't wait to see how she was brainwashed... and finally a face off with the white haired character will happen soon enough.

Berserk (is that it's name) was a dope character/monster thing..
Still not getting into this anime very much. Kinda lame-ish so far. Nothing really new.

Disappointing action in this ep.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

Makoto is my second fave girl after Fumi but it's bound to get interesting if


The anime not taking Ronaldo's route is almost a giveaway since the op and promo materials heavily feature AO/Hibiki/Yamato love triangle. Anime original ED is the most likely though.

Crap. Now I have to worry that characters I like might be killed off. I had no love for Keita but they better not do it to Io or Hinako. And that Demon Exchange app seemed to come out of nowhere. They could have done at least a little explanation of that--although since the only ones available seemed to be the demonic equivalent of teacup poodles maybe it won't be a big factor.

How I hate these horrible Computer hacking setups.
Percantage indicator of how much one got through a Firewall or looking at some letters at a screen and instantly know what the program does. Fucking absurd and cheesy beyond reason.
First two eps were better than I imagined but this? Oh god, no.
Turned into Pokemon with Cellphones and the "trainers" can/will die, lol.
The only positive thing was Keita dying so soon, couldn't stand any other ep with him.

I must admit that I was really surprised. I was thinking that the anime was going to have a "perfect playthrough" like the P4 adaptation.
Well, it seems that it will not be the case.
What's worse is that they knew that people were going to think this, given their feint about Keita's death.
And it's far from over, since they apparently change the ending for each dead character. So Keita will not be the only one.
Aro-Chi, I'm pretty sure they'll do it again for the third. Too cool to live, all of that.

I approve about Keita's voice. It sounds too girly to me. However, his character was a lot better in the anime IMO. He never died in my playthroughs, but I really HATED him. Here, he is fine. Not "good", but fine.

Zakkun, about your


I'm pretty sure that we will have the true ending. This way

Rodac, the demon auction may be be explained later. It's THE big problem of the anime; how will you explain the MC gaining "money" for it? It works in a RPG, not in an anime.
Anyway, it's not important for now but they may explain it later. When Daichi will need to be effective and not a punching-ball anymore.

I kind of like it though, at the beginning I was watching it thinking that it was going to be good, but predictable. Well, turns out that no.




Now that I think about it, I like the opening too. AO = RED, Yamato = blue. Maybe with THAT people will stop to confuse "Chaos" and "Law" with "good" and "evil", and stop to say that Yamato's end is the chaos end. It is particularly particularly upsetting because apparently most of these people forget about the subjective side of what is "good" and is "evil".

They'll probably tie it in to whoever is running the Death Face app (and presumably is running everything else behind the scenes). I don't mind having the auction in the show since it seems to be a feature in the game but I think we were owed at least a "Hey what's this new app that's appeared on my phone?" bit of an intro...

Yeah agreed. That's a little depressing. But then again looking at the OP, it seems like there are a lot of characters, and the anime is only so many episodes. I'm thinking a lot of them will show up only once or twice in the anime. Seeing that the people who have played the game are complaining, I kind of want to play it now. Lol at Daichi and his useless demons :( I'm hoping that he will become more useful later, not that it's really his fault for having weak demons...right?

Haha, in my opinion it was introduced this way in order to laugh at Daichi's expense. Well, it's more or less the only way to obtain new demons in the game. So they WILL have to introduce it later if they don't want everyone to solo the anime with one demon.



By the way, did anyone else who did the game notice the


Also, the number of characters shouldn't be a problem anyway.
But the whole story is supposed to be quite dark. Devil survivor 1 was a REALLY dark take on pokemon, angels, etc, among other things, and 2 isn't much better. So having dead characters isn't a bad thing if you want a faithful adaptation. it really was Persona 4 that was an exception by SMT standards.

Just like in my first playthrough, Keita died.

Even if they are changing a lot of things from the game, it's shaping up nicely.
I hope Keita is the only one to die...I like my characters alive and depending on the ending


Lol'ed at Daichi's demons being super weak. He should improve soon...
Please understand.

I liked him! D= (To the point I replayed this part of the game sooo many times so that he wouldn't die)
I'm gonna sooo put this thing on hold now, damn you.

(I kid....though I'm probably gonna put this hold more cuz I haven't played beyond this point in my game file *HEADDESK* )

Yeah, okay. Hibiki. Clearly Keita is the kind of person that gives a fuck about orders.

Wow, Keita is so grateful his life was just saved.

HOLY SHIT. Didn't expect Keita to die already. Also didn't expect the plot to escalate this quickly.
