With the release of the legendary Devil May Cry just around the corner, Manga Entertainment have kindly allowed four clips to be aired, just to tantalise your sense and keep you hyped up until the 19th October.
Adapted from the hit Capcom series of video games, produced by Madhouse Studios and directed by Shin Itagaki (Black Cat; Desert Punk), the complete DEVIL MAY CRY anime series comes to DVD as a three disc release featuring all 12 episodes of the action-packed horror adventure.
Struggling to stay on top of his ever-increasing financial problems, Dante makes a paltry living by running his small demon hunting business, Devil May Cry, along with his agent, Morrison. Half-demon himself and armed with a variety of weapons – including his twin pistols, Ebony and Ivory, and a massive sword he calls Rebellion – Dante is a fearsome foe for anybody who stands in his way, particularly those who are not human. His only weaknesses are beer, pizza and the women in his life. Among them are the young orphan girl Patty Lowell, a feisty fellow demon hunter named Lady, to whom he owes a sizeable amount of money, and Dante’s beautiful and mysterious ex-partner Trish, who returns to his life unexpectedly and delivers a whole new bunch of problems.
Together (and often separately!), Dante, Lady, Trish, Patty and Morrison take on a never-ending horde of human-impersonating demons, their one intention being to send them straight back to Hell.
Cool, sexy and bloodily violent, DEVIL MAY CRY is a thrilling and mature anime series that will appeal to fans of other action-horror series such as “Hellsing” and “Karas”.
