Storyline

After fighting in the Crusades for three years, Dante rides back home to his family estate to reunite with his beloved Beatrice and his father. Dante sees a rider following him, but out of the blue, the man vanishes with no trace. When he arrives home, he sees the servants slaughtered, his father murdered and Beatrice near death. When her soul is going to the heaven, Lucifer takes Beatrice to Hell, telling her that Dante has betrayed her. Dante meets Virgil who guides him to Hell, and the poet explains that Beatrice had a bet with Lucifer that Dante would be faithful to her while in the holy war. In return, Lucifer would protect Dante and bring him back home safe and sound. Upon arrival in Hell, Dante learns that he needs to cross nine circles to reach Lucifer ad on his painful journey, he discovers who doomed his family to suffer in Hell.

Quotes

Lucifer: Even the purist souls can be corrupted. Dante is not the man you once knew.
Beatrice: You did this to him. You corrupted his heart.
Lucifer: I've had no need to influence humanity for many millennium my dear. I simply introduced sin. Man is the one who has spread it like a disease; cultivating it, empowering it.
Beatrice: It is not our fault, none of it. Man is good.
Lucifer: No, you don't understand. The earth is another form of hell, and men are its demons.

Anime Overdose

Well. I'm pretty sure everybody is familiar with the original Dante's Inferno, the story changed a bit and Dante this time isn't that Dante but a crusader and takes a rather bloody journey into the nine circles of hell.

The prologue is drawn by Film Roman, not the best part of the movie but far from the worst.

Then comes the only part I enjoyed, Limbo which was drawn by Manglobe, a dark Gothic atmosphere that is lost in the upcoming circles drawn by other studios. It is semi realistic (real world rules with an added layer of twisted fantasy) Dante is a hardened veteran of the holy war seeking to rescue his beloved and nothing more, nothing less.

After Limbo you are tortured by Dongwoo Animation, and you literally have to endure hell to watch the movie any further as the upcoming four tiers are simply awful. Just an example, apparently for these Korean folks the Cerberus is a three-headed WORM and not a dog, at least they should have put their facts right. Of course Dante by a miracle became a one-man army slicing through skulls, spines, bones and whole bodies vertically with ease, while his physique suggests the opposite.

At City of Dis another Korean studio, JM Animation takes over until the 9th tier. Dante reincarnates again as a super hero but with matching looks this time. The differences between the two studios stop here. There are random explosions when Dante is pushed against the ground or simply when his and a former friend's weapons clash in battle, God knows why.

The ninth and last tier as a kind of reward (you would think) for all the suffering of the previous 7 tiers, is animated by Production I.G. Yeah the animation is superb but the story. Despite Dante's vow to God thus imprisoning Lucifer once more he still enters the Purgatory.

All in all, the story had some potential but it is ruined by the terrible implementation.

Thumbs down.
