I wasn’t expecting much from this, but we’re actually off to a pretty good start here. As someone who’s played the game, which will inevitably lead to spoilers, I’m probably not going to blog this. But I think the story of Devil Survivor lends itself better to anime than Persona 4, as there’s a single, continuous narrative rather than all the social link stuff.
Devil Survivor 2 isn’t revolutionary by any means, but it’s solid and engaging storytelling. My main beef with the game is that all the females have such enormous mounds of fat attached to their chests; but I suppose this is a relatively minor complaint, all things considered.
If you’re wondering why they skipped straight to Devil Survivor 2 and passed over the first game, I would imagine it’s because Yuzu is so annoying. Trust me, we’re better off never having her animated.
Also, correct me if I’m wrong (it’s been a while since I played this) but wasn’t Daichi’s truck driving a lot more badass in the original? I seem to remember him driving off a bridge and dive bombing the thing. Also, I thought he knew about his death from the phone site and so jumped out of the truck in time on his own instead of getting carried by a Pixie.
