    Review: Devil May Cry (Level 1)

    Volume 1 of 3 (contains 4 episodes) Release Date: 15/04/2009 Genre: Action/Adventure, Anime, Fantasy, Horror Runtime: 100.0 mins Those of you who have played the “Devil May Cry” games would most likely know the story behind this series. If you’re like me and haven’t touched any of them – read on. The main character in this series is Dante. He is packing some serious heat – in fact in the first episode he’d made quite a few demons resemble Swiss cheese by the 2 minute mark. However he isn’t just wielding 2 smoking barrels but a big, nasty, sharp sword as well. Dante is an assassin of sorts – he gets hired to fulfil certain jobs (for a fee) and each one varies.
