4.0 out of 5 stars Devil May Cry... BOOK! 9 Mar 2006
By GameFan
Well, I'm a big fan of DMC, so I really liked the idea of a manga. I do not own any other mangas yet, but I quite enjoyed reading this one. The story (as far as I can tell) is set before DMC3, and almost fits in with the story of the game (I'm not sure some of the content is the same as the opinions of Capcom, such as Enzo, Dante's 'manager'.
The story firstly explains the beginning of the world, with a brief description of the events with Sparda, and the Demon/Human worlds. Then, it focuses on Dante, who is put on a mysterious job to rescue a girl from a strange house. Vergil and Arkham have appearances, but mainly in the all too familiar library from DMC3:SE.
The story is fairly short to read (I read fast, and it took me about an hour), and the story isn't brilliant, but the artwork is pretty amazing, featuring some cool DMC style scenes.
If you like DMC and you want a little backstory, a short story, and some cool artwork, this is pretty good. If you want detailed backstory that you can read again and again, its probably not your kind of thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Read 2 Jun 2007
This was one of the first manga books i bought, I did the same as most people and saw DMC and thought "ooo i wonder whats thats like" and having read it almost straight away, i was blown away, doesn't follow the game too much (which is good, coz i got the game, dont want to read it as well) It has a fantastic take on the Alice In Wonderland story.

again, a highly recommended read from me

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick-Ass 31 Mar 2007
Although this is called 'Devil May Cry 3' it isn't entirerly based on the popular Playstation 2 game that got released a few years ago, this follows Dante as he accepts a job to rescue a girl, but it still has a lot of similarities (like Dantes cocky attitude) and his Demon-Father Sparda is mentioned on more than one occasion. Also, there is breif appearences from Arkham, and Dante's twin brother Vergil. This has everything you'd expect when you see 'Devil May Cry' in the title: kick ass action scenes, a great storyline, and its great to see how Devil May Cry would be in manga-stlye. The artist is brilliant, and it has a storyline that keeps you hooked from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dante's story is awesome as always 21 Oct 2005
By J. Wick - Published on Amazon.com
I think the style of the artist completely fits the story. The lines are bold and dark with lots of shadows, reminding one of an atmosphere similar to the Crow or Final Fantasy VII: a dark, gritty landscape where violence can happen at any moment, especially amidst the shadows. Dante is well-rendered and absolutely hot (in my humble female opinion). The dialogue is just as gritty, low, sometimes vulgar, but exactly suitable to the type of world in which it is based.

I had thought that it might be hard to render the intense action-oriented scenes that occur in the game stylistically as well as they do in the manga, but I was pleasantly surprised. There are great cut shots to certain aspects of our anti-heros (eyes, gritted teeth, the chunky metal lines of his guns, the wicked length of a katana) that just absolutely fit. All in all, the manga artist makes everything stylistically gorgeous and the story is equally well-paced.

The relationship between Dante and his manager is interesting to see. Character interaction is of course just starting in this first volume and I can only wait with baited breath for the next volume to see just how much more sinister the undertones between brothers, between the opposing factions, get. This story translates so well to manga with just the right amount of gore, just the right amount of action, just the right amount of erotica, and just the right amount of backstory to leave the reader eager for more. I can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Devil May Cry 3- Wonderful Art 8 Feb 2008
By C. hensley - Published on Amazon.com
I am reviewing Devil May Cry 3, a manga by Suguro Chayamachi. First things first, the artwork is beautiful. From small detail in fight scenes to detail in conversations (facial), everything looks wonderful. Also, the fight scenes are dymamic and it's easy to follow the action, so you get a good picture of what's going on. Now, on to the story. Well written and involved. You want to know what's on the next page, what happens next, and you're not disappointed. Well written conversations, varied and believable personalities, placement of characters, and the direction and order of the storyline all come together to keep you an involved reader. All around, this is one of the best mangas I've ever seen.

I usually don't read mangas but I could not put this one down. I'm a fairly recent Devil May Cry fan and loved the games (1 through 4) so I purchased this as well as volume 2 to give me something to read during finals week at school. I found myself reading and reading, more importantly though, I was enjoying the art of the mangas. Dante is frequently being drawn in dynamic poses and a few static poses but he looks amazing.

Highly recommended for Devil May Cry fans.

Yet another piece of the DMC universe for us fans. This manga gives us some in sight to what was going on with Dante before the the game.
