Devil Survivor 2 The Animation

Win! This makes Digimon look like cheap crap that one only watches in prison or something. I cannot believe how I missed this? I already read up on this season’s anime a few weeks ago, yet this one never really caught my eye. It’s quite funny how this one episode ended up blowing my mind.

Devil Survivor 2 The AnimationI remember what I thought when I was a few minutes in; “okay, so now what? Is it just a bunch of pretty pictures?”, when suddenly those monsters showed up and raised hell. The characters look great, the backgrounds look great and those demons are amazing, although I’ve got the feeling as though I’ve seen Byakko, one of the demons in the show, before somewhere.

In the end I’m happy that I didn’t really read up on this one. I thought that it was going to be a silly show about some stupid game where people die because of some game, only to find out that it’s about something else entirely. It’s too bad that there’s always some kind of organisation involved though in these types of anime.

Watch it. Just go watch it already. Don’t even think about dropping this after you’ve only seen the first episode. Give it a real shot, because it shows a great deal of promise. I just hope that it won’t become one of those tiresome struggles between rival organisations.

Plot Summary: 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.

    Well Byakko is part of a myth that’s very popular to use in media so it won’t surprise me if you’ve seen him in another anime. He’s one of four godly beasts that guards the east, west, north and south. The other three animals are a turtle, a phoenix and a dragon.
