Based upon Gô Nagai's manga, "Maô Dante" ("Demon King Dante"), originally published in Bokura Magazine from January to June, 1971. Dante himself was considered by many to be a prototype for Nagai's more famous character, Devilman, created the following year. See more »
This movie is hoorrriiiblle!!! I knew it would suck from the get-go, just by looking at the cover. The script is written sooo incompetently that they say the same word three times in one sentence!The music comes straight out of an old live action batman show, and its plot is SO ridiculous I hated myself for spending 3 bux to rent it. THERE ARE NO ACTION SCENES! THEY USE STILL PICTURES INSTEAD! the DVD says gore, violence and nudity, but there is neither a nipple shown, punch thrown, or decent gore in this cheesy OVA. okay so the plot goes like this: this kid is the devil and his sister is a god. the end. don't look for any reasoning for this in Demon lord Dante, because they don't even explain it, the demon looks like some fifth grade kid drew it, and the whole message behind it is ridiculous. At one point a character even yells " kill all the satanist!! don't let them revive their precious god" its like a catholic priest thought up this concept. At another point it even gets incestuous, as the main characters sister asks him out on a date in her underwear.... In conclusion, save your self the pain and misery and go rent Akira, Ghost in the Shell, hell even Barney the purple dinosaur gives more thrills than this.
