    Default Devil Survivor 2

    Anyone seen it yet? Differs from the game in certain ways. I am really ok with that tbh. The anime made me like Io a lot more XD

    I didn't play the game but I'm enjoying the adaptation.

    A lot better than expected. They really upped the apocalyptic factor. The game felt like a dating sim with occasional death and destruction on the side.

    It's going to be extremely rushed though. 8 days in 13 episodes. They're probably going to skip all of the social link scenes and subplots.

    For what we have so far, it certainly shows promise. Of course they are few minor differences between the game and the anime but that when happen when you do an adaptation. Overall, I liked the first episode and am interested in seeing where this goes.

    It was definitely a lot better than I was expecting, so that's a big plus in my book. I also REEEEEEALLY want Fumi to make her appearance ASAP!

    Just like with the Persona 4 adaptation I DIDN'T play the game beforehand so I'm going into this one blind. First episode was good for set up, it shows promise. Only 13 episodes? Alright.

    I'm digging the voice cast so far. Anyone else reminded of Gantz this episode?

    I think it's weird how the MC already had Macca when he downloaded his devil summoning app. It would be an interesting plot twist if this show was actually a    Spoiler:- h:

    The first episode was interesting enough to keep me watching, won't pass judgement on it this early though.

    Next episode is probably going to be really rushed. They have to introduce Fumi, Hinako, and Keita, and there's the Nicaea situation in the middle of the episode, and Merak at the end.

    And I don't know what they're going to do with Nagoya in episode 4. They're keeping Io's Solid Snake scene, and Fumi will have to be in that episode as well, so there's no time for Ronaldo/Phecda. They're going to have to reduce some days to single episodes if they want to fit all 8 days in 13 episodes. :/

    I really don't know why they made Episode 2 a filler episode. They could have fit half of Episode 3 into this episode, but they included a useless battle instead.

    Are you positive it's 13 episodes?

    Picked up the game last night. Going to see if I can keep ahead of the anime.

    MAL says 13 episodes. MAL never lies.

    And good luck keeping ahead. It shouldn't be too hard depending on how much free time you have, but grinding will be a beach at moments. *recalls the horrors*

    Make sure you grind. This is a game where you can get game overs no matter what your skill level is.

    I really wish this game was released in Australia so I could pick it up.

    Fingers crossed the 3DS re-release can get an Australian release, if not it looks like I'm stuck with the anime.

    Although I didn't play the game, but I enjoy all characters and stories in the anime. My fav one is Yamato Hotsuin.

    They actually did it. Looks like one of the endings is now out of the running.

    Wow. I'm surprised they did that. (And yay! Fumi made her appearance!) And wasn't Joe introduced earlier in-game?

    Looks like next time they fight the most annoying boss in my opinion.

    Never really liked Keita's personality so I'm glad he's dead.

    So that means more characters will die in the future episodes.

    Speculation is that every character with their back turned in the ending dies. Which means Keita, Jungo, Ronaldo, Joe, Yamato, and Psyduck.

    I really don't want Jungo to die. I love him and Fumi to death (physical and magic bombs!!) and use them in every playthrough. But Airi can't die because she's plot-relevant and I really don't think there's any way for Jungo to be anything but a filler character even if he does survive.

    Also, I really want Makoto to die.     Spoiler:- game:


    Joe is a goner. I don't even get why they're bothering to include him if he's not there from the beginning.

    As for the last three:     Spoiler:- game:

    Episode 3 was pretty good probably the best we have had thus far. I was surprised they did that but let's see if they can make this work. Looking forward to the next episode of course.

    So sad, ep 3, the silver-haired-shouta died......

    Why couldn't they kill the useless dude, can't even remember his name, but the dude that summoned two useless demons.

    Episode 4 was great. I love how they're adapting the video game. It's like Pokemon done right.

    There's no way this has 13 episodes though. Monday alone took 3 episodes, and Tuesday is confirmed to be more than one episode. 6/7 episodes for the 5 days after Tuesday? No way.

    I like how intense its been so far.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Daichi actually gets a powerful demon later and saves everyone, assuming he doesn't die.

    And it looks like everyone else is making their appearance next week. They showed Joe, Airi, Jungo, and Otome in the previews. (unless I'm forgetting someone)
