Netflix is creating a Devil May Cry anime series

Netflix has given fans a first look at its latest video game-related release, an animated adaptation of Capcom's beloved Devil May Cry series, though a release date has yet to be revealed.

The details:

  • Netflix has finally released a short trailer featuring iconic series protagonist Dante, five years after the executive producer of the critically acclaimed Castlevania adaptation, Adi Shankar, revealed that the anime was in the works. The trailer doesn't reveal much, but the music is very "DMC," and Dante sports his signature white hair and red coat combo, Ebony and Ivory pistols, and even lets out a signature "WOO HOO," so it appears to be rather faithful to the games so far.
  • Shankar will serve as executive producer and showrunner for the series, which will be included in his "Bootleg Multiverse" alongside Castlevania and his unreleased Assassin's Creed series. Studio Mir, best known for The Legend of Korra and its animated films based on The Witcher and Dota, is in charge of the animation.
  • This is not the first time Devil May Cry has been adapted into an animated series, with Trigun studio Madhouse producing a 12-episode series back in 2007. The series received mixed reviews, with many criticizing the writing while praising the interactions between fan-favorite characters Dante, Lady, and Trish.
