    Make the Yelling Stop
    Devil Survivor 2 caught my interest with its odd premise: humans battling demons with phone apps that summon other demons and tell the future. I was curious to see where it would go, but just four episodes in and my patience was at an end.

    While I could easily make an argument for why the show's plot is too ridiculous to suspend disbelief (demons from cell phone apps, a secret government agency ...

  • A love letter to the game, but not recommended for newcomers.
    To be honest, I have to admit some bias, because Devil Survivor 2 is one of my absolute FAVORITE games ever. So needless to say, I was extremely excited for this anime.
    I fell in love with the animation, the music was AMAZING, and the characters were (for the most part) the ones I knew and loved in the game. However, this was the perspective of some one who's played the game.
    Objectively, the ...

  • This anime deserves more than a "chance"
    I MIGHT be biased about this for i am in love with all the works produced by ATLUS, however this anime adaptation far exceeded my expectations. Granted, the plot was a tad unstable but that's just the style of the anime. It might not be for everyone but what anime is? This is a perfect example of an acquired taste type of anime. The characters might have come across flat and unoriginal but the ...

  • So Obsessed With This Story!
    Okay, so if you are a person who hates annoying characters so much that it derails you from the story, then this is probably not for you. There are some characters in this show that will piss you off, and yes, there is a lot of yelling. (Saw a review on that.) The main purpose of this show is that the world is ending and these people are using their cell phones to summon demons to fight. This by ...

  • Okay...But it could have been better WARNING:THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS
    Devil Summoner 2, the how left much to be desired, it lacks character development and is ruined by the burden that is its video game. Anime's based off games tend to be lacking story wise and this is no exception. It is too focused on Hibiki and makes every other character somewhat unimportant at the end. If you care about a character other than Hibiki then you will not enjoy this. For example, ...

    Almost... but not quite great
    It's good--for a game to anime adaptation. But the characters were so insubstantial that it ended up being a let down. I'm the type that's completely willing to suspend disbelief and tag along for the ride, no matter how outrageous the premise of the show is. However, the characters fail to back up the plot, and the plot fails to bring us much depth. Also "meritocracy" is not defined ...

  • Promising, But failed.
    Devil Survivor 2: The Animation, was very promising to begin with.
    Especially knowing it's origin came from the game made by Shin Megami Tensai.
    The same person behind the Devil Hunter series and the spin offs of those games called "Persona".
    ( An mmo also exist in the Devil Hunter universe called "Shin Megami Tensai: Imagine." )

    But in the end, the story of the anime ...

    My top pick for 2013
    Reviews on this series have been pretty mixed, but it definitely topped my list for the year. It's unique, and it doesn't play too much to anime tropes; the characters are all realistic and it doesn't go for cheap laughs.

    The ending keeps me from giving it a full 5, although there are only so many ways it could have ended, but for the most part it's a serious show where every decision has ...

    Enjoyed the game more, but I still liked the anime
    I know there are many bad reviews around based upon factors such as character development and story, but for someone who played the game to get every ending and every achievement I must say it wasn't all too bad. Let's be fair here. To fit such a detailed game into a 13-episode anime would be quite difficult if you had to keep the story intact. As for character development, while I can honestly ...
