There are some serious issues with the anime adaptation of Devil Survivor 2.

Accurate

Nicaea exists.

Bunnygirl is obviously the canon choice for Nicaea host.

Makoto is the best girl.

 

 

 

Come on, Japan

How the fuck does MC-kun have Byakko at the end of Day 1? That thing’s a level 53 demon. I was using level 60s at the final boss, Day 8, so this is some bullshit right here.

Chappy doesn’t exist in the game.

Turn-based grid combat, where?

This was in English in my copy of the game.

 

 

 

Conclusion

To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. The show is nothing like the game.

Atlus, this isn’t how you get people interested in the series. Don’t blame me when the series bombs, because I warned you. On my niche-as-fuck website. Way too late after the fact to matter.

Perhaps next time you’ll listen.

Rating: 2/10

approve so much. I really hate this jerk for being overleveled and not having transfered demons… this is so much cheating!

New Game+?

temp_late says:

Indeed, MC-kun also has 64399 Macca just after leaving the station. omg hax

Humanity says:

This show sucks! It completely misrepresents the Devil Survivor 2 video game.

Sheep says:

It’s still gonna suck. Did we not learn from the Persona 4 Animation.

Dark_Sage says:

Sadly enough, some people actually liked P4A.

Sheep says:

Sad indeed

Beckett says:

That would be those of us that didn’t play the game, naturally, which I’m sure was better.

Sine says:

There is going to be a lot of things not in the game if the manga adaptation is anything to go by. And the anime is most definitely the manga adaptation.

At least we’ll be seeing a bit of male Tico.

poke says:

I definitely would want to watch it, for the Otome and Airi of course

Nyangoro says:

Because game to anime adaptations always work best when they shoehorn in gameplay elements `3`

pengu says:

Well, I haven’t played the game and thought the episode was fine. I think the “best girl” mentioned something about the MC being op. Overpowered main characters are no sign for a bad show (Mondaiji). I’ll keep watching for now ^^
And Byakko is kinda cute :3

zeust says:

In my opinion, this show is enjoyable if we don’t think about the game. I mean sometimes there’s no choice but to get away from the real stuff. If we think this from anime point of view, they had to give the protagonist level 53 demon, because he’s the protagonist. Again, you can enjoy it only if you pretend you never have heard of its game. (I remember watching Death Note in English after watching in Jap, it sucks in English no matter how much I try)

Duhr says:

I was just really sad that there was no Joe :(

ShadowGX says:

Aside from Byakko summoned on the 1st day I don’t really have a problem with this anime. Why don’t they showed us 3~6 lower level demons ganging up the boss, instead of Byakko goes 1-on-1. If they do this, I’m sure the feeling of team battle from its game can be achieved.
