Devil May Cry


Devil May Cry is an anime series based on the video game series created and owned by Capcom. It debuted on the WOWOW TV network in Japan on June 14, 2007, and ran 12 episodes.

No official chronology places the events of the show within the current game canon. However, characters Lady and Trish, who debuted in the third and first games respectively, appear as semi-regulars.

In the show, Dante runs his devil-hunting business, Devil May Cry, while struggling under constant financial debt. There are also two new regular characters - Dante's agent Morrison who visits frequently, and Patty Lowell, a young orphan girl he saved in the first episode, who also visits frequently.

While the show's stories were mostly self-contained, a season-long plot was introduced in the first episode, and came to the forefront in episodes 11 and 12.
