    Awwwww yeeeeeeeeah!

    • AlexanderPappas

      Hahahahaha! Let’s do this!

    • Raze


      You need to include this picture

  • benhofb

    Hmm. That means it’ll probably invade the states in fall. Btw, I’m annoyed with the anime.

    • Detrimont

      same here, people are loving the anime, but i dont think they’ve played the game, so many important things from the first day are either removed or changed

      • Then you should enjoy the anime as the anime, not how it is compared to the video game’s story

        • Detrimont

          since it’s a series with source material, you’re supposed to compare, removing a whole character is something that cant be overlooked

          • IshimaruKaito

            your talking about joe right

          • Detrimont


          • Claud12

            Hahahah I loved how he ”kidnaps” Daichi in the game :)
            Gotta love Joe :)

          • benhofb

            Seriously one of the best characters in the game, IMO. It is a shame he hasn’t even shown up yet.

        • benhofb

          I do agree that both are different entities, but I mean, c’mon. The anime is based off the game no matter how you cut it (whether it is based of the manga based off the game or whatever else). Personally, since I played the game and not read the manga, I was expecting the anime to follow the game perfectly. Not cut out characters/kill them off/give them roles they didn’t have in the game. I mean, I’m all for creative direction, especially in anime, but when this is the anime companion to one of my fav games of last year, I expect more.

          • You can treat the anime as a different scenario to the anime, there’s no obligation to compare the two. Besides, isn’t it better that they mix things up so you dont have to see the same scenario twice? For example the FMA anime, halfway through it they completely changed the plot because it was being produced faster than the manga’s plot could keep up. What resulted was a hugely popular anime, even with half the plot unrelated to the original manga.

          • Detrimont

            the difference is, the game has a full story

      • It is called an adaption. Better done this way then a boring direct one

        • Detrimont

          most series are directly adapted, would you call them boring?

    • I hope you’re right, I never got the chance to play the second one (loved DS1) so this would be the ideal point for me to do so.

      • benhofb

        I hope I’m right too ^_^. I am just basing my assumptions on Atlus’s release records. Whenever Atlus JP releases something in the summer, a fall release usually follows (like P4G). Well, unless we’re talking SMT IV which has a crazy 2 month gap between releases, but I doubt they’d give DeSu 2 the same treatment.

    • ThatGuy3190_7

      The anime is adapted from the manga version, which is almost loosely based off of the video game.

      • Detrimont

        actually the manga is based on the anime, they always release the manga first though, they do it to hype the anime more

        • ThatGuy3190_7

          The manga came first. It was released December 18, 2012.

          • Detrimont

            i think the subtitle the animation should give you a clue as to say that it’s based on the anime, they are made along side of eachother and they release the manga first to to hype the animated series, they do this with a lot of series, also, if the anime is based on the manga, the manga would be almost complete by now.

    • AuraGuyChris

      It’s based on the manga than the games.
      At least it’s better than the damned Pokémon anime, which strays away from the good stuff too much…

      • DyLaN

        The DS2 manga tht most ppl knew are base on the anime script btw. There actually another manga tht is base on the game. (DS2 -show your free will-)

        • AkuLord3

          You do know some animes are based on games…right? not only mangas~ especially when they release the manga to hype the anime

          • DyLaN

            Yes I knew DS2TA & its manga adaptation is base on the DS2 game…

      • Pokemon anime is good the way it is don;t hate Donald

    • Claud12

      You mean Keita or anime overall. When I saw the end of 3rd episode the time stopped for a second there.

      • benhofb

        Without giving away too many spoilers, yes-Keita. What they did to keita was unexpected and made me quite mad. Especially considering how the true ending in the game kinda requires you to save and love everyone.

        • Sardorim

          …Even Ronaldo.


        • XYZ_JolteonZ980

          I creyed so hard for keita, my precious, and they even removed him from the ED.

  • Guess I’m holding off on getting 2 for now then. Kinda good since I still got a lot of games to play. Doesnt help that I’m playing a lot of MH3U and a few MMOS =p

  • Kefkiroth

    I guess I can hold off on DeSu2 for DS to wait for this. Liked DeSu1, and heard this was even better.

    I’ve felt a bit left out knowing the anime is being released and I’m not watching it, but I really wanted to play the game first. An updated 3DS version with a new story added in will be neat, and will probably be the best way to experience the game firsthand.

    • Detrimont

      while both are great games, most people agree that the story in the first is better, but gameplay is better in 2, i recommend both though

      • Claud12

        First is my fav. (don’t even ask how many times I played it). After my first meeting with Merak I thought that I will never finish the game. He was annoying as hell.

        • DyLaN

          I haven’t played the game, but the LP I followed suggest tht you stay out of it range (middle) so tht it won’t pewpewlaser you.

    • DyLaN

      Watch the anime anyway. The anime heavily rewrite some of the events frm the game. While I wouldn’t say its a horrible adaptation, I think its better to experience the anime 1st.

  • Yuriangels

    geart now i don’t need DeSu2 now!!!!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    When will this game invade my 3DS Atlus?^_^

  • Can’t wait! I wish there was some way to transfer my demons over to the new game lol

  • Sardorim

    Think they will change Ronaldo a bit so he isn’t… So dumb? His scene against Makoto was one of the dumbest in the game by far and really demonized him as a character. Especially if you fail to stop him or join him… For whatever strange reason.

  • Raltrios

    The anime is my first foray into the world of the game. I had to coax the true ending stuff out of one of my friends.
    I, for one, am glad they’re doing it like this. Episode three was a bit of a shocker to me as well. After MC’s friend made it past the first ep I let my guard down. But now the world feels a lot more real knowing that names don’t equal immunity.

  • Poor series like this need to do this style. It is boring when it is an exact copy of the game. /the Pearson 4 anime should of done it too instead of being a clone of the game

    • Detrimont

      i dont think you get how anime works
