It was announced back in 2018. The producer is Adi Shankar who also produced the Castlevania animated series for Netflix.

The wait is annoying but I hope it's worth it.

Good or bad, atleast it will give us something new to talk about.

It might even reignite interest...and increase forum traffic ;).
The monkey's paw curls, and this anime turns to absolute dogdoodoo with the writing. Again, Dante is so OP it's boring, the episodes have no cohesion, but this somehow works as an entry point into the series to attract newbies who think this Dante is the definitive version even though he's unlike whatever his newest portrayal is in the games, bonus if it's edgy trash.

I wonder what voice actors they'll use. Hopefully, ones with a lot of experience in voice work.

I'd say the episodes of the anime were simply stand alone not lacking in cohesion.

It's flawed, very flawed, but for a video game anime from the 2000s, I think it could have turned out much, much worse.

I'm hoping for a fresh take on the series. So that's a risk I'll have to take bruv.

But who knows, it could be good. They might finally get me to like Nero.

Stranger things have happened. ;)

@Lain The pun/reference wasn't intended...lol

Nice one.

@windleopard @Morgan
My big problem with the last anime was the lack of good characterization. Everybody was pretty meh even my girl Lady. So as long as they do better on that front, I'll be open to it..

An interesting villian and a good plot would also help.

No, I know what I said and I meant it. It lacked cohesion. If it were just stand alone monster-of-the-week episodes they would've ideally put in more work into the individual episodes instead of wasting the characters in them with barely any action from a studio known for its action scenes. If they wanted an overarching plot from the start then it shouldn't have been the generic take-over-the-world plot from Sid acting like a bootleg Arkham. He should've gotten killed on sight and instead Dante's Plot Induced Stupidity let this guy collect pieces of unrelated demons to open a gate in episode 11 to "a demon that could rival Mundus", and no part of that makes sense: Abigail has Mundus-level power but could be sealed by a random sorcerer we've never heard of; the barrier is so potent it works better than any hellgate we've seen in the games; did the demons not know they had pieces of the barrier seal in them?; what makes them the pieces Sid needs for the seal and not some other demons?; Dante gets overpowered and impaled by Abigail and it's presented as such a big deal that Patty needs to go down and personally un-impale him because he's knocked out, then one episode later he can survive impalements from Abigail and one-second DTs him? Pick a topic, it won't make sense.

As it is, the episodes on their own sucked, and the overarching narrative that kicked in in the penultimate episode with only brief bits of foreshadowing two or three other times also sucked. There's a reason I tell people only a third of the series is worth watching.
