    I think DeSu2 needs some defending...
    There's a lot of people writing reviews who have played the game and I can thoroughly respect their opinions, whether it be satisfaction or utter disappointment. I, personally, haven't played the game, so I have no right to refute their arguments. However, I didn't start Devil Survivor 2 because I was a fan of the game-- I started because I was a fan of anime. The show piqued my interest. ...

  • Could have been better
    Devil Survivor had a lot of potential to be great. It had an intersting story, appealing characters, and awesome animation. However, as each episode pass the story becomes less intersting, the characters not as appealing and the animation still awesome, but nothing we haven't seen before.

    This show is good if not for the game.
    I think all the people complaining are just but hurt that the show isn't like the game much. But I figure this is an adaption which of course they are gonna omit events. This show makes me wanna play the game if that's one of the reasons to watch. I personally enjoy the show and don't want to be bias just cause the game is different. But I do agree that they should have developed the characters ...

    Gets worse as the show progresses.
    The original title I was going to use for this review was "Not as great as everyone claims it is." However, after thinking about it for a while, I realised this show is actually pretty awful, and it gets worse as the show progresses.

    Devil Survivor 2 the Animation has nice animation. Unfortunately, it's accompanied with cliched characters, little development of secondary characters, ...

    Passing adaption, I guess.
    I had recently played through the two Devil Survivor DS games, so I was psyched to watch the anime. I've watched two episodes so far and currently I'm not very impressed. Maybe it's because of my bias to the DS games, but the plot seems a bit rushed and shaky. Especially since they put the main character in such a high pedestal right at the beginning, where as in the game its more of a steady ...

    Plot's Too Different
    The plot is absolutely rubbish.

    That's how I particularly feel about the anime not because of its style, but because everything is too rushed. As a retelling of a story that should delve deeper into plot and character development we learn very little about the characters that make them who they are and why they make the decisions they do. Signing up Devil Survivor 2 for only thirteen episodes ...

    Game's plot lovers will probably not like this.
    This review is being written after Episode 11's release. Events in Episode 12 and 13 will not be included or mentioned.

    I for one, who loves the game don't like this adaptation. I am well aware that anime adaptations usually get a lot of change to fit the broadcast schedule or so it can make more sense to first time viewers, but this is a really bad disappointment in my books. This is my ...

    So bad emo anime. And full of plotholes
    First episode was ok. Not good. Just ok. After first episode the whole series has been full of plotholes, badly written characters and annoying emo kids. Only good thing in this horrible emo anime is the bad ass demons. And even most of them are dumb as hawk..

    Simply Amazing! Very easy to recommend!
    From what I have watched this anime has been very entertaining. It allows viewers to develop bonds with the very well done characters. I have never played the game but I must say that the anime is very impressive. After watching the first episode I was very "meh" because of the summoning through phones kind of thing. During the second episode I saw what all the characters were working towards and ...
