Disgaea: The Netherworld War, Volume Three


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



After being asleep for two years, Prince Laharl wakens to find his father died, and the Netherworld is in chao... but woken accidentally by the wayward angel Flonne, he is determined to take back his throne.  But far from home and tormented by those who want his crown for themselves they begin the journey together with the demon lord Etna.  But the craziness doesn't end there, when even more humans and angels come crashing into the Netherworld it becomes all out war, not only for the Netherworld, but the human world and Celestia as well!


Based with a video, comic, the series is filled with comedy on epic proportions as a young and powerful demon struggles to regain his throne, along with an angel trying to teach him love and peace *with no luck*.  Filled with funny and heart warming characters, the unlikely team of demons and angel learn not only about love, but the friendship in their journey together.


I first expected this series to be pretty silly and off the wall, but after watching it, even thought there are angels, demons, space defenders and things blowing up constantly, they still have their moments.  Even thought they may have started out as enemies, you can't help but laugh and smile when they turn out to be fast friends in the end.  It was a very amusing and has a heartfelt ending.  If you like any of the video games or books then pick up this DVD as well.

Just when Laharl and company final reach his castle the human space armada shows up, along with 2 million space ships can the Netherworld get anymore crowded?


Episode 10: The Defender of Tomorrow is You


If things couldn't get worse than the Netherworld being invaded, Flonne and Etna get taken hostage it is up to Laharl to save the day.


Episode 11: A Night Lit Up by the Red Moon

Episode 12: Love... After the Fighting Is Over


As things come to the end, who is at fault and Laharl is ready to make someone pay for all this... who was behind it all and what was its purpose?



The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image looks good, with only it stylizing holding it back, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is well-recorded with healthy Pro Logic surrounds.  Extras include Rondo Robe Promo Video, trailers for other Geneon DVD releases and Special Talk #3 & #4.
