    Devil May Cry (Anime Series)

    For all of those who may (or may not) know there's a DMC anime now. I've seen upto the current episode (Ep. 6 out of 12) and so far I really like what I see. I haven't actually managed to find DMC for the PS2 anywhere (yet) so I don't really know much about the series aside for the main character being a demon/human gun/sword toting guy named Dante. Could anyone possibly let me know if its anything similar to the storyline in the actual game series??

    I have seen the first 5 episodes of the series myself, and I have played the first two games. They are nothing alike really, considering personality of Dante or the whole storyline involved. Of course I can't go indepth about the subject because I am still pretty new and didn't care for the game much.

    From what I have seen over some forums, fans of the game may be dissapointed by Dante of the series. He isn't necesarrily the kickass rock star represented in the games, but actually has some depth and cool dark silent hunter type appearance. The music isn't as hard rock or metal as in the games either, but since this anime series isn't the hack and slash type rampage such as the game, the music does fit to a certain degree.

    It seems pretty much like the cookie cutter private detective or freelance merc anime to me. Always in debt, having to take on crap jobs just to become more in debt, saving a few innocents, and having an occassional comedy scene or episode appear out of nowhere.

    You should be able to rent the games from the nearest movie rental or buy the titles for cheap at the nearest EB Games. It isn't hard to find really and sine they are a few years old, I am sure their are pretty descent deals.

    Besides that, the visual is pretty smooth and the change in character for Dante is a plus in my opinion.

    "change in character for dante a plus"? Dante was awesome before, "Silent Hunter"? how queer is that. the smart ass mouth offer from the 3rd game is the REAL dante!

    Well, like most of some of you i find the Dante from the anime less darker than the one from the games. Still though, i think anime is going pretty good so far, too bad there will be only 12 episodes.

    I never cared much for the first game Dante, he didn't really have much of a character and that is how I came to my conclusion. Obviously because I have not played the third, I wouldn't be able to compare now would I. The second is just a bluur and from what I remember, I didn't get much from him then either.

    Of course, since this title isn't my favorite anyways, it didn't have much of an impact and therefor considering the anime series better is quite reasonable.

    Silent hunter is queer huh? Are the words an actual problem or is it the concept, because either or puts makes for a pretty descent definition of the Dante in the series. Personally I prefer the silent heros who just walk in, kill, and walk out as if nothing significant had even happened.

    Of they stayed true to the character as in the game, there wouldn't be any depth or future for this series. They were smart to play what they did and that is probably the only way to get a larger fan base. Bringing games into anime and vice versa don't work out too hot, and I consider this one a descent try, and probably one of the best I have seen so far.

    Do you have anything to say about the series along with your comment about the game?
