Devil May Cry (デビル メイ クライ) is an anime series based on the video game series by Capcom. It debuted in Japan on June 14, 2007 and ran 12 episodes.
The show was produced by the anime studio Madhouse and was directed by Itagaki Shin. Morihashi Bingo, one of the writers for the second, third and fourth games, was also on the writing staff.
The series is based on the manga and novel volumes, and sees the return of series regulars, Trish and Lady.
In the show, Dante runs his devil-hunting business, Devil May Cry, while struggling under constant financial debt. There are also two new regular characters—Dante’s agent Morrison who visits frequently, and Patty Lowell, a young orphan girl he saved in the first episode, who also visits frequently and shares a sisterly relationship with Dante.
While the show’s stories were mostly self-contained, a season-long plot was introduced in the first episode and came to the forefront in episodes 10-12.
