Devil May Cry Character summary and short review
10 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Devil May Cry is a 12 episode series of animated episodes based on the PS2 Capcom Video game Devil May Cry and the Manga volumes. The Animated Series follows the main playable character of the Video Game, Dante as he works in his demon killing business, Devil May Cry. Dante (voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa in Japanese) is a half-demon, Half human. whose father, Sparda, a legendary Dark Knight, saved the earth from demons many years ago. His mother, Eva's picture stands on Dante's desk in Devil May Cry in memorial. Dante works as a Private investigator,mostly accepting jobs involving the supernatural. although, throughout the series, Dante is in financial debt, and the money from his work goes to pay off that consistent debt. Devil May Cry also sees the return of series regulars, Trish and Lady. Trish, who makes her first appearance in the first game is a human-like demon created by Lord Mundus in Dante's Mother's image, she has demonic powers, such as electricity. after, Dante defeated Mundus, Trish joined Dante as his partner. Lady, who makes her first appearance in the third game is a female demon hunter, who is descended from the bloodline of a priestess, whose blood, Sparta used to seal the gate between the human and demon world. she often gives Dante work and takes the pay claiming it will go towards the debt he owes her. Two new additions to the series are Patty, an orphan girl, who Dante saves in the first episode, and spend her time cleaning Devil May Cry after Dante, and acts like his sister. the other addition is Morrison,Dante's Agent. who gives Dante work and helps out with repairs around the office. at first the series seems to just be Dante taking missions,and winning, but something more sinister is happening in the background. this is where the last main character comes in. Sid, A weak demon who first appears in episode one, and continues to appear throughout the series. Initially seems to be an insignificant danger and minor nuisance, Dante shows mercy towards Sid and restrains from killing him when given the opportunity. Unfortunately, Sid's ambitions prove to be far more dangerous than Dante possibly imagined. The order of the full series chronologically i believe is DMC 3 followed by the first DMC then the Anime then DMC 4 and lastly DMC 2, this is because By the anime Dante has met both Lady and Trish, but Lady and Trish don't know each other, and they meet and become friends during the anime, and I believe in the 4th game Trish and Lady make an appearance together(having not played the game I'm not sure) then the 2nd game comes last.

From the Animation team that brought you Deathnote, with amazing music By Japanese singer Rin Oikawa and Rungran. Devil May Cry combines bloody action, and Emotional moments, although I hoped there would be more, showing more of Dante's vulnerability towards his mother,and showing that although Dante seems to be a man with no cares, there's is something hidden in his tough exterior, although there is one episode that does go into Dante's past, and another where a demon falls in love with a human, both episodes, and others do reference Dante's parents and past, but I'd Like to be more. despite some minor flaws, in this Reviewers opinion, Devil May Cry is a must see.
