‘Devil May Cry’ anime series: What will its plot look like?
Devil May Cry will primarily revolve around Dante, with the fate of the world resting heavily on his shoulders.
Relentless attempts by sinister forces are being made to open the gateway between the human and demon worlds, posing a grave threat to humanity. At the heart of this chaos is the orphaned demon hunter, who remains blissfully unaware of the important role he plays in the unfolding conflict.
According to Anime News Network, producers Shankar and Larsen had finished crafting the script for the first season of the series by November 2021. It has also been confirmed that the show will span multiple seasons, with the first one slated to consist of eight episodes. The first season will likely focus on the primary characters of the video game franchise including Dante, Vergil and Lady.
The recently released trailer portrays Dante in his devil-may-care attitude as he engages in unseen combat. Fans might be wondering who is voicing the iconic demon hunter. Unfortunately, the voice cast for the series has not been unveiled yet.
