    Is it pathetic that I’m still actively trying to get through the first Disgaia on the psp?
    I love N1 but I need a few more lifetimes to play through all their games.
    BTW if you haven’t played Phantom Brave you should the story characters and battle systems are all amazing!

  • Go2hell66

    best disgaea opening

  • Andrew Arndt

    i tottlay can´t wait for this game

  • Ben Chau


  • Shariest

    Done did it, 5 minutes before coming here ;D

  • Looks fantastic. Magical Girl Love Freak Flonne is awesome!

  • Wappuli

    So the new mystery angel really was Flonne, that’s a little disappointing.

    • Sergio Briceño

      I think that is actually great. If she does get a transformation It’ll give me more incentive to bring her into battle. I usually develop monster only in Disgaea games, characters that I more easily relate to since I’ve created them. But since I still love the MCs for their hilarity it’ll be fun to battle with them more now that they can transform. NIS just made an already interesting character even more interesting.

  • Arrei

    Needs more Prinnies, dood!

    • Mar Mar

      Not a single Prinny showed up…..? How come :S

      • Arrei

        There was a bunch for like, a second.

    • Visa Vang


  • Tails the Foxhound

    Makes me wish the Disgaea anime wasn’t awful. Riding down on your own meteor attack is the definition of badass!

  • echokanon

    What is the class of the witch like character around 1:30?

    • komiko12

      Lols. You fell for the trap!
      It’s actually the new look of the Male Healer.

      • Tenno Seremel

        I’ve just found a new class for my in-game alter ego :3

      • echokanon

        lol, I only remember the short hair one in D1

  • Isaac Newton

    Mahou Shoujo Flonne!

    Wow the first disgaea was a truly awesome game and now this! Just don’t screw our hope NIS!

  • Pockystix

    definitely the best one in the series

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. Did Flonne just transform into… something? And her eyes turned blue again? Is there any concept art of this new Flonne-form anywhere?

    • True

      Look for the post with Asagi previously. It had her as well.

    • komiko12
      • Göran Isacson

        Aaah, so that’s her. Man, what a difference a new hairdo, new eyecolor and a far skimpier outfit makes.

        • komiko12

          Lol. I think pink did not suit Flonne.

        • Guest

          Um…that’s not Flonne…that’s a new character who is supposed to be a Celestial Idol; Savior Pink or something from the Celestia version of where Axel’s pal Pink the deathsaber came from

          • That IS Flonne. Watch her transformation sequence in the opening again.

  • Fidelis

    I’m seeing all this Hoggmeiser, but not even a hint of Maderas.

    Also, I’m worried about the fact that there hasn’t even been a single mention of the Earth Defense Force trio

    • Yeah, I’m starting to believe CAPTAIN GORDON, DEFENDER OF EARTH! will not be in this game, at least not as a regular story character.

  • Fidelis

    Does anyone think that this will capture the magic of the first Disgaea?

    Playing it felt like playing through a fairy tale with the Tim-burton esque art style and plot points like the red moon and laharl getting burned by the pendant

    The rest of the games have felt like playing through bubbly animes, which isn’t a bad thing but it made it impossible to enjoy them as much as I enjoyed the first.

    • disgaea36

      Idk I think it will tho. I only played the first 2 because it involved all the major characters from 1 in 2. I skipped 3 and 4 but I will be picking this up. Laharl and Etna is what got me into this series so I will be back at it again lol

  • Adol Christin

    Not too bad.

  • Radiosity

    I didn’t think I was ready for another Disgaea yet after 4’s platinum crushed my will to live (I didn’t even bother trying for it after a friend got it, it took him a couple of hundred hours and he was totally burned out afterwards, damn ship parts), but after watching this I think I might just cave and put my preorder in anyway, it’ll no doubt be great fun even if they ruin the platinum again, and power levellers like these are great for some quick pick up and play fun if you’re short of time for something else.

    • DesmaX

      haha, Disgaea 4 platinum is really hard.
      I have 200 hours in this game, and I didn’t get any silver trophies, lol

      • Radiosity

        Yeah, my time was something like 130 hours as it was I think, I did get a couple of the silvers like creating all classes, but overall I only got to about 45% trophy completion. I ‘was’ going to go for the plat but changed my mind after the aforementioned friend recommended against it lol

  • cloudcaelum

    Wow, best for me too.

    But i want to ride dragon, griffon etc… Just like Makai Kingdom, Nippon should do this.

  • riceisnice

    I just can’t get used to Laharl’s new pants.

  • komiko12

    I will always be a fan of the Laharl-Etna-Flonne. I’m very glad that Nippon Ichi is making this game. This opening much more epic than Disgaea 4, which had some silly parts.

    And what is this? Would Etna have some sort of relationship with the red haired guy (Xenolith)?

    • Tenno Seremel

      Both are red haired. Clearly, they are related :}

  • Surgeon of Death

    My body is ready…

  • gustave154

    Thanks for this!!

  • The song somehow reminds me of Blazblue CS’s opening theme.

  • That opening was great! Makes me want to play it right now =)

  • Disgaea’s new animations in this opening feel so fluid.Great first thing to start off my day.Also i had a feeling the new blond girl was flonne,i just really liked her the first time i saw her,so it had to be flonne..the power of love at first sight.

  • サレム

    Can’t wait to read the dialogues when laharl turns into a girl.

  • Raltrios

    It all looks so fluid! Spectacular work, NIS.

    My body is ready, but my wallet is not. I’ll still need to get a PS3 when this gets localized.

  • Kitestwinblades

    When NISA sends out that Preorder Newsletter, No mercy will be shown.
    I’m just warning you guys… Disgaea fans will put ALL of their HL on the line XD

  • Visa Vang

    Theme song from Minori Chihaya!! DA BEST!!

  • Zenthos

    Laharl,Flonne, and Etna….. So bad ass…..

  • Watching this brought a stupid big grin to my face.


  • Guest

    Looks like if they spent all their budget in this animation, is awesome!

  • Follower_of_Pram

    Certainly a nice, polished opening.

  • MrTyrant

    I was thinking that Barbara is pretty hot until I saw female Laharl. gawd!

    The op is awesome, already my favourite.

  • artemisthemp

    Like the ending, where Lara have Flonne and Etna ad his side
