Another anime based off a video game, Devil May Cry follows main character Dante, a famous demon hunter. I haven't really played the games so I don't know what he's like in them, but here he has a sense of humour when it comes to the serious bits. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's well delivered.
Back to the story. Dante's first main mission is to escort a girl to her late father's mansion so she can put his will into effect and take over his estate, which isn't exactly a walk in the park. This is Devil May Cry! And I guess you could say this happens in reality, but we shall focus on the anime world. Patty's (the girl) father has some brothers who also want to take his estate, but after learning that he has a daughter, wish to get rid of her before she reaches the mansion. Throughout the escort journey, Dante has what you could consider a sixth sense when it comes to detecting the presence of demons, which do seem to be everywhere, and you can expect a lot of fast paced action DMC style (I have seen gameplay). And blood. Lots of blood.
But it doesn't just stop there, for after this mission come 11 more, featuring a couple characters from the DMC series. I know of the two which come into the anime later since finding out that a theme from Gintama is very similar to one in DMC 3 (if I remember correctly). No missions are the same either: you get ones filled with romance, or just good old action, but to name a few. Nevertheless, you will not be disappointed as you're finally able to see Dante in action without you controlling him, if you have yet to see the anime that is - it was released back in 2007 after all.
The anime sticks true to the DMC series from Dante's appearance to his weapons, and from the action to other characters that feature, so there's no need to worry about significant changes in the anime. Devil May Cry is one which you should watch if you like anime adaptations of video games, or if you just want to see some blood and action.
