Index Corporation is spinning off another one of their games into a video game series. Instead of picking Persona 3, they’re going with Devil Survivor 2. Devil Survivor 2 The Animation has Seiji Kishi who worked on Persona 4 The Animation as the director and Makoto Ueze is handling the adaptation.
Originally told on the Nintendo DS, Devil Survivor 2 follows a group of high school students heading home from cram school when they get a SMS message with a video showing their deaths. Daichi, Io, and Hibiki Kuze (that’s the protagonist’s name in the anime version) survive using a demon summoning app. Meanwhile, invaders from outer space known as the Septentrion appear over Tokyo and a mysterious group known as the JPs is rather well equipped for the threat…
Players can choose which faction to side with in Devil Survivor 2, so I’m interested to see which story route the anime goes with.
