Dante’s Inferno is the companion Anime to a game being released this week from EA and Starz media. Not being an avid gamer I have no expectations other than this story revolves around a man trying to save the soul of his murdered love from Hell (fitting Valentines viewing? perhaps ^_-). Below is a taster of the animation direction and dub.
Having read the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri, I will be keen to see how this very European theme of Heaven, Hell and Purgatory is intepreted by Asian animators and whether this will hold true in artistic design or merely de-evolve into a hack and slash all action, no brainer. I would like to hope that the script tackles some interesting moral points but seeing as it’s a side release to a game, I won’t get my hopes up…regardless of the situation at least this means I will be using my new TV which has just been sitting there since December 2009 @_@
Dante’s Inferno (Anime) will be released on DVD and Bluray in the UK (region 2) 8th of February.
Thanks for reading
**DVD has just been shipped, so there will be possibilities of a full review next week.**
