Watch Devil May Cry
- 1 Season
Based on the acclaimed video game series of the same name, Devil May Cry is an anime that follows the story of a young half-demon man named Dante. Filled with the violent slaying of demons, strange evils from another world and Dante's cheesy one-liners, the show should be nothing new to fans of the video games. The story centers around Dante's devil killing business called "Devil May Cry" and his constant financial woes. Each episode centers around its own plot as Dante typically comes across chances to pay off his debts, but there is an overall plot that connects them all. In the first episode, Dante is tasked with protecting a young girl named Patty who supposedly comes into a large inheritance. Naturally, however, the inheritance is part of a demon's plot to lure the girl and take her soul. After Dante succeeds in protecting the girl and killing the demon, she grows attached to the devil hunter. Along with cameo appearances from Dante's former companions in the video games, Trish and Lady, the young girl forms a sort of female conscience to help keep Dante in line. The two women of his past form a sort of comic relief in Dante's stories, always finding ways to cheat him out of the money he has just earned for his jobs. Just like the manga series that the show is based on, some of the episodes have plots that offer insights into Dante's past. There are often moments in the series that a more serious piece of Dante's personality is revealed to the viewer. But as always, he is still the cocky and arrogant devil slayer people have come to love since his debut on the PS2. There will be many demons killed, and even more will be taunted. Dante's infamous one-liners are alive and well in the anime series. Between Dante and his female companions, Devil May Cry offers dark entertainment for fans or newcomers alike.
