Interesting…most things are the same, but they’re changing up some things in this adaptation. They introduced Kujo earlier (I still haven’t met her in game yet). Also, we haven’t met Joe yet…what the heck, man? I think he’s in the opening and ending themes, though. Unfortunately, the battle against Fumi is the last thing I’ve done in the game, so I don’t know what’s next.
Most importantly, we have this deal with Keita’s death, a playable character in the game. Does this mean he’s really alive? Or are they actually getting rid of a major character that appears in both opening and ending in the same episode he’s introduced. I find that strange. I understand that the show’s short, so they can’t go into his back story, but he doesn’t have to be killed for it, right? Anyway, we’re finally gonna meet mystery kid next week?
As expected, they’ve been recruited to fight against these Septentrions. We still haven’t addressed the website yet…though I have my suspicions. I guess we’ll see how this turns out…the first Devil Survivor was the kids wandering about on their own…this time, the kids are being ordered by this organization. Also, who wants to guess whose parents are dead?
The creator of the summoning program mysteriously disappears at about the time an attack occurs involving a new form of the program? Sounds like she’s evil to me. Maybe I’m jumping to conclusions, but that’s the first explanation I have. So the journey begins…looks like new characters next week.
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.
