AniDB wrote:Mysterious invaders called the Septentriones arrive in Japan and begin attacking the country on a Sunday. To fight back, the heroes in Devil Survivor 2 signed a pact with the devil to become the Thirteen Devil Messengers. The Septentriones show up at least once a day and you have a time limit of seven days to defeat them.

Angsty Digimon!

But seriously, this was a pretty heavy first ep and I loved every second of it. This will definitely be something I'll look forward to every week. Plus the music so far is awesome!

Talk about something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT to fill in the void left by Polar Bear Cafe.

Digging the first episode, it had a nice mood and animation. Love how the main has Byakko as his Persona demon. Haven't played either of the games so im going into this blind, cant wait to see where it takes me.

I'm sad this is just Devil Survivor 2 and not Devil Survivor 1 (THAT story is just fantabulous), but this one is just as good honestly. The Devil Survivor series generally:

Spoiler :
focuses on the survival of the human race as a whole, usually involving god or an omnimpetent being as an ally or as an asshole. Devil Survivor 2 especially wracked up the survivor bits. DRAMAZ COMING EVERWHERE.


Seriously, keep watching it though. I'm not sure how the plot is going to unfold, since there are multiple plot routes in the game, but there are some really awesome things that could come of this.

Spoiler :
Meanwhile, I wonder how they will handle the demons, since they can purchase them and have multiple ones in the games. The main characters can also use spells, but I'm sure it will be like PErsona 4 and leave them useless and have them fight with just demons.


But yeah, I am VERY excited for this and all the other Persona related anime coming out. This is seriously my favorite franchise when it comes to gaming, right up there with Pokemon. :3

Nothing surprinsing. It feels like i already watched a lot of a anime like this and i've never played the game, so i can't say i'm really excited for this.
But well, i think atlus fans will enjoy this a lot :uhoh:

I love the idea so far, it feels like Persona where they wield monsters/supernatural beings as weapons for fighting. :up: I'm pretty tempted to get the game but I think I'll watch another episode or two before I decide. Will be following this series for sure though, I have high hopes for something awesome to come out of it!

Definitely a persona vibe in this series, which is not a bad thing. I'm hoping the summons actually have some kind of personality and aren't just soulless props that get pulled out during fights, but it doesn't look that way too much from the first ep. Either way this is still one of the series I'm most interested in this season

ep 2 out

I think the characters' personalities are exaggerated a bit too much, but it's still interesting. Couple things that still confuse me

Spoiler :
So there's only 6 "boss" demons they have to defeat? but when a person dies who was on the website their phone spawns trash demons or something? I wish they had explained things a little better. Evil organization of bad guys trying to destroy the world, that's pretty much all we know and they have 6 (or is it 5 now) demons that will do that somehow. It's really stereotypical with no real explanation. Maybe I'm spoiled by Zetsuen no Tempest as that explained every little thing that happened lol.

Pretty enjoyable ep, didn't leave as big an impression as ep 1 did tough. Im enjoying how its playing out like a zombie survival [/pun] movie except the zombie are Persona. Hope it keeps that idea at least somewhat throughout, though Im expecting the situation to shift a bit.

Episode two was rather enjoyable. Especially the second half. :up:
I don't like how the show is treating Daichi as the weaker and character that just whines.

as a JRPG fan I'm worried that this will ruin the game for me? Any thoughts on that by people who have finished the game? It's only just recently been released in PAL-land I think... or coming soon at least.
