Devil Survivor 2: Complete Collection (2013/Sentai Filmworks DVD)

Picture: B Sound: B- Extras: C Episodes: B+

Japan is under suddenly attacked by demons and beings know as 'Septentriones'. It seems like the end of the world, their only hope lies in the Devil Summoners, people who have made pacts with demons and can control their powers. Hibiki, Daichi and Nitta were normal high school students until they found out they could summon demons through their cell phones, now the fate of the world lies in their hand, but through love and loss can they find the strength and the will to fight various forces, humans and demon alike?

In Devil Survivor 2: the Complete Collection, what Hibiki, Daichi and Nitta thought was cellphone game application soon turned into a nightmare, that they received future pictures predicting their deaths and could summon demons. Hibiki in particular could summon extremely rare and power demons. They are suddenly then recruited by JPs, a secret society lead by Yamato, who knew of this coming apocalypse, that humanity must defeat 7 Septentriones, a test for mankind, if they lose all existence would be erased, if they win the will meet the creator of their world, Polaris and remake their world. They are guided by the mysterious benefactor Alcor who seems not to play either sides, but yet somehow he always knows everything.

This series would definitely fall into what people would consider survival series, where the main characters are placed into various survival situations where they must choose and make hard choices between saving themselves, their friends or others. The main conflict however wasn't between man and demons, but the various humans in power, each trying to via for control of others through force, political power, or other manipulations.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and the lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo play as good as they are going to in this format, but a Blu-ray version will also available, so those who have a machine might want to get that edition instead. Extras include clean opening and closing animations, and trailers.
