As a DMC fan, I've played the video games, and really loved Dante's character. He was a smart a**, flirty, kick a**, rebellious, back-talkingguy. That was part of what made me warm up to the series.
Does anyone else think that the anime!Dante didn't really do justice to video game!Dante? I didn't really like how our video game Dante was portrayed.
The Dante in the anime seemed a little too serious. I don't think they chose a voice actor suited for his character. From what I remember, he was portrayed as a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. They tried to throw in his smart-a** one liners in there, but it just didn't sound right without his care-free, lighter, boastfulvoice, like in the video games. They pretty much left the flirty part out too - and I loved how blunt he was with all the women he came across in the video games.
I know he's more serious and maturein DMC4, but this is before that, so I thought he would've maintained the outward, immature, cheeky tendancies he had in the previous games.
To me, anime Dante seems more like Leon from the RE series than his videogame self. But, don't get me wrong, anime Dante is kick a** too. He's an awesome character, but he just doesn't do justice to his video game self.
Those are my thoughts, though. Anyone else agree/disagree?
