I haven't played the game, but the anime has grabbed my attention. The pull it gives you for wanting to know what happens next works pretty well.


Thankfully the first episode flows and looks quite a bit better than Persona 4 does. Especially since they share the same director. Should be interesting to see what ending they'll use, though I'm hoping for the demon King ending. Also the show has anti-gravity {busts} and alien ice cream.


The attention to detail compared to the games was great (ie. the names and panoramic views of the areas visited). I wasn't big on using 3D for the lead monster in this episode, which looked especially amateur, but otherwise, it was great looking! Pacing was a bit too fast but it seems like they're trying to fit each days worth of events into each episode, so perhaps it can't be helped...

Must admit for show based on a game, this faired better than average. Acting was passible. The creepy Dead Face with cutesy anime character depensing demons was a little lame but hey, it's a game. Love the ending track.


above average game adaptation. nothing that really stands out as original or imaginiative, tho'.


Strangers thrown together, familiar landscape transformed, authorities struggling to catch up with events, alien world intruding into ours, and human technology mixed up in it in some vague but dangerous way -- there's tons of story elements here, nicely balanced and all set to generate some really interesting plot ideas. The characterisation is thin, but good enough to make me want to watch these kids some more and see just how they get caught up in this disaster (which is apparently Armegeddon) and just how they'll manage to save the world. I definitiely would watch this series.

Having been someone who played the game the show actually moves along rather quickly and it doesn't take long before the characters begin to fight demons, and you actually begin to learn what is going on.
