Wow I didn't think they'd actually kill Keita.

Next ep looks fun, there weren't any tanks in the game but I'm not surprised to see them.

I can't believe the anime actually killed Keita Thank god, he was annoying
Considering they are introducing the second septentrion next episode, it looks like this anime could actually be 2-cour. If they keep it as slow paced as they have.

Didn't expect them to kill Keita. Gives me a feeling that they might kill most of the characters.

I hope Fumi's personality will have enough screentime. Her quirks are just too cute.
And yeah, I'm saying this thing about a 2-cours since last week. Monday isn't even the "longer" day, so if they take 3 eps for it, a 2 cours is a given. Even with 2 eps for each remaining day it wouldn't really work anymore now. And they'll probably put some FATE scenes and background too...

The OVA thing would be very good but I'm not sure about it. It would be quite complicated to do since there are more differences between the endings than in p4. It would be awesome though.

Also. THE scene with Trumpeter (you all know what I'm talking about) will be awesome. I can't wait for it.

I didn't think they would kill off Keita in the same episode he was introduced, caught me off guard with that one. I'm still wondering how on earth they are going to fit this into a 13 episode series.

Looking forward for next week's episode.

Another great episode. Not much to say.

THey implemented the auction in quite a decent way, nice.

Good bait-and-switch with Keita surviving only to die. Perfectly sets the mood up.

Keita disappeared in the ending video!!! So that probably means that he is really dead [kinda reminds me of Angel Beats ending video too]. Tsk tsk...

that shit was depressing hopefully more than the main 3 make it to the end

As they saw Keitas dead face i thought even if you see the future what makes you think you saw the right one~,still was kinda surprised to see him die so soon no one is safe! :(.

Didn't expect Keita to die since he didn't die during my play through then again I only played it once.

The characters introduction was different than in the game but its nothing important.

So a character disappeared from the ED when they died huh, that's pretty depressing.

I hope Daichi get a stronger demon soon or he'll be useless in a fight.

lol that's why that dude reminds me of someone XD

keita dies? meh, kinda see it coming waaaaay before this anime even start (from the trailer). though i kinda like his being tsundere :P
you can even get the clue if he'll die, guys. Keita's saved from SHARP IRON WAITING UNDER THE STAIR. Look at his death clip, he's not stabbed to any iron =.=
but somehow this reflects what people do in-game. I've seen so many people couldn't save keita in their first playthrough. besides, his death (and possibly hinako's strong will) helps Hibiki to


next will be....

Keita's Death send a lot of us for a Loop, there just wasn't enough time with him on screen for me to get attached to him and like his character so didn't really mean anything to me that he died. other then that decent episode looking forward to next one hopefully lots more action will happen.

No way! Keita just made his debut only to die immediately in the episode?! I don't really like Keita in particular, but I think if he's going to die, it'll be better in the next episode instead of in the episode he just made his debut.

I'm 98% sure the ending would be anime original. And in one of the trailers, it's shown Hibiki only with Daichi and Io at the terminal (?), so I think they'll be the only ones left in the end (unless later they somehow restore the world like in the Triumphant ending and everyone are alive again). Though, I actually also have another speculation. At the end of the opening, there're words "Let's Survive". The words are the same as the one in Yamato's ending, right? It might be possible that the ending would be Yamato's.

Overall still a nice episode. I'm looking forward for the next one.

i think it's because people think kishi will go to "perfect daichi ending" where nobody dies, but seeing that character death don't affect the storyline much like P4 (character death, i mean one of them results in game over to the game), killing character is an-okay....
the amount of total episode is at fault, now it's possible to get 13 episodes, since there won't be so much characters...

So um yeah, anyway...

Not a huge fan of this episode, but the ending did surprise me. I thought if anyone would die, it'd be the ones with their backs turned in the ending. Glad it won't be so predictable and that people will die.

The cracking bits were kind of silly and overdone. The whole thing kind of reminded me of that one episode of Evangelion where the Angel was penetrating Nerv but without as much going on otherwise (And Yamato's a lot less active and a lot more 'Gendoish' in this version too. Wonder if they're playing up the similarities or that's just me.). I didn't realize Fumi was going after the barrier to the tower, though; that part of the game make a whole lot more sense now.

Glad to have Fumi aboard too for next episode (if she's up).

Oh dang I was joking with someone before this ep that Keita would just die and it really happened?? Though honestly, I never really...liked Keita...but still his death was sad. I mean, he was doing nice things during the battle! Where is the arrogant annoying Keita we all know and dislike mildly?

Anyways on more possible deaths

Didn't expect Keita to die since

Seeing how it's still monday in episode 4, I am worried about the pacing if it is just 13 episodes.

With over a dozen of "participation members" and only 1 cour length, the death rate needs to be kept at around 1 per episode, so it is actually a question of who gets killed, and by way of elimination I guess Keita gets the short lot.

In fact I think this will also be the case when we see the anime adaptation of the Dangan Ronpa game where there are over a dozen "game participants" and perhaps just 1 cour for the anime. Kill rate needs to stay high so that a winner will emerge at the end.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Surprised to see a lot of people having Keita die in their game, i don't exactly remember saving him being hard, but well i always use phantasm/devil speed since those really help to achieve some objectives.

The "let's survive" words are pretty much here since DS1. I would like Yamato's ending but they are here since quite a while, so it's pretty much a theme in the devil survivor serie.

now it's possible to get 13 episodes, since there won't be so much characters...
It doesn't work if they are going to take 2 or more episode for each day. And the following days have even MUCH MORE things to explain than monday. (dragon stream, shiva, etc)


The cracking bits were kind of silly and overdone. The whole thing kind of reminded me of that one episode of Evangelion where the Angel was penetrating Nerv but without as much going on otherwise (And Yamato's a lot less active and a lot more 'Gendoish' in this version too. Wonder if they're playing up the similarities or that's just me.). I didn't realize Fumi was going after the barrier to the tower, though; that part of the game make a whole lot more sense now.


Sadly (I pretty much hate EVA), a lot of the endings have a lot in common with EVA. I will not say anything else to avoid spoilers, but the common points are not exactly here for nothing.

Tofupika:


You KNOW that's the reason they are going to kill him. I still want his FATE events with his cat though.


Seeing how it's still monday in episode 4, I am worried about the pacing if it is just 13 episodes.


Don't forget that Toradora was also supposed to be a 13-eps on ANN and MAL at the beginning.

With over a dozen of "participation members" and only 1 cour length, the death rate needs to be kept at around 1 per episode, so it is actually a question of who gets killed, and by way of elimination I guess Keita gets the short lot.


That's not a problem. You also only see everyone for some hours in the game and then don't see them for a while until the end after their chapter. This, and the fact that a 1-cour seems unlikely. Possible, but unlikely. Monday should have been 2 day-long in a 1 - cour.

Also, it does have the same director as P4. Which was 2 cour - long, and not bad at all. I don't think he would do such an obvious mistake.

actually, in daichi's restorer ending we have words "let's survive". It'll be awkward to have "good luck", right?

which condition? i don't see keita's back turned forward, and hinako's back's shown in one point of an ending....

though the "turning-back" theory makes sense somehow, since

Seeing Hibiki's personality, it's unlikely that the anime would follow Yamato's way of meritocracy. Only 13 episodes, huh...I feel it's kind of a waste with many great characters. They could have develop it much better. I know that there are some anime that would be better ended fast, but I think DS2 should have more episodes at least 26 or 22.

I wonder who will die next...

Im getting very disappointed on this Anime MegaTen games are one of my favourite things, this anime is butchering badly DS2. Seiji Kishi ruined persona 4 the animation and its going to ruin Devil survivor 2 too.

also

Somebody noticed Keisuke (DS1) at JPs in Osaka






Looks like he is working at JPs now.

Wow. I thought Byakko was strong? It didn't do a single shit against the opponent. Lol at Daichi's summons, hope they will be somehow useful in the future cuz I feel sorry for him.

He's not even flaming the series, yet he gets this much hate. Maybe he likes romance more than action... Not that I'm saying Date A Live > Devil Survivor though!

A decent episode, not something special, but also not bad.

Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta run away from this thread since it seems to be overflowing with spoilers. Just make a frackin "well in a game they XYZ" thread and throw thousands of spoilers there.
Getting here to comment on an episode and seeing 90% of comments are not about the episode, but about the future events in a game is fucking annoying.

The only things I really like about this show now are the OP and ED songs. The concept seemed cool at first but I'm just meh at everything now. Lost that horror factor the show had in the first ep with the introduction of Nicaea. The MC kinda annoys me at times, ever since he started being all "must-protect-everyone". Well, I'm annoyed by everyone else too tbh.

If it doesn't pique my interest again next ep I'll most likely drop.
