Devil Survivor 2 First Impressions: I’m Waiting for Some Serious Death

[HorribleSubs] DEVIL SURVIVOR 2 THE ANIMATION - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.49_[2013.04.04_21.17.07]

Let me just say that I am super hyped about this show. I love the Shin Megami Tensei series and I played the first Devil Survivor. First off, as a veteran of the first game, I can note some similarities. There’s the devil summoning program in the phones, the fact that deaths can be predicted, and the cast has the same distribution of two guys and a girl. It also seems like we have a similar quarantine situation trapping our protagonists. This bodes well…I’m looking forward to it. Similar to the Persona 4 adaptation, the voiceless protagonist has taken quite a lively role (I can’t remember if he’s supposed to be a typical protagonist from this game).

I’m definitely satisfied with the music in this show. I think the opening is great. The ending is shaky at first, but it picks up. So far, I have no knowledge of the game, but I’m considering playing it so I can make comments on adaptation. It looks interesting. So far, the story looks very similar to the first Devil Survivor, where the main characters use their knowledge of the time of death to save lives. Also, when the main character was summoning Byakko, it seemed like there was someone watching. In the first game, the main character had a brother who was mysteriously watching the whole time…something similar? Seriously…I’m so looking forward to this.

  1. As someone that has played both, I think you will enjoy this one. It kind of took some liberties with what happened in the game (especially, dat Byakko summon. Wish I had thing during this fight), but I would call it unimportant at best. Think I will like this one better than the game. However, I wonder what ending they will pick.

  2. it is rare to see marth this excited…marth ever play smt nocturne?or digital devil saga?

    anyway back to the topic:
    the protagonist is a silent one like usual in the game.

    it being similar to the first game is understandable since it is based on the same series after all.though the reason of the lock down and other detail is clearly different than the first one due to obvious reason.and of course albeit the story focus on surviving it isn’t like the first one with the time of death and all,in here the goal is to stop the septentriones which will cause the destruction of the world.

    you should play the game marth,it is better than the first one in my opinion got lot of new feature.
