The first episode of this series was truly lame… If the director’s goal is to make Dante a combination of a total badass and a smartass at the same time, that person surely succeeded. Not once in the first episode did Dante get scratched. Even more dubious was the fact that he appeared at the most convenient times to unload a few caps into the demons with a little swordflinging. Indeed, the animation is superb and the gore a bit overdone, I believe this is a disappointment to a regular viewer. Therefore, the show is meant for diehard fans who are either infatuated with Dante or the storyline.
From some blog that I read, this show does remind me of Hellsing.
