5.0 out of 5 stars Better than it has any right to be 9 Feb 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having not played the game this is based on I didn't know the characters or story beforehand but I'm glad I took a chance on this series. Disgaea isn't going to win any prizes unless there's a contest for guilty pleasures. It ranks highly on my list of anime that are more enjoyable than they have any right to be given the mediocre at best animation and the sad truth that anime's based on games almost always suck.
Well guess what, this doesn't! Ok the story is never going to win any awards but it is fun and entertaining. My hat's off to the English voice cast, for once the dub was as energetic and enjoyable as the original japanese audio.
Disgaea does exactly what it sets out to, tells a fun story and leaves you wanting more, effectively making you want to play the game it's based on.
Just to warn you, The Disgaea games take a LOT of time but are very good. The main characters from this eventually appear in disgaea 3 on the PS3 and the rest are DLC.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures of Laharl 8 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For better or worse, I came to this without having played the computer game or read the manga.

This DVD gives you the first four episodes of Disgaea, an anime series which chronicles the adventures of Laharl, Prince of the Netherworld, in his quest to claim the throne for himself in the wake of his father's death. The series is fun - it has a sense of humour and it never takes itself very seriously. It also affectionately references and/or parodies other pop culture staples, so there's always enough going on to keep you entertained and amused. The one exception to this rule is episode three, which tries to be bizarre, trippy and funny, but which succeeds in being just lame, lame and lame. I very nearly wrote the series off after this, but I'm glad that I didn't, because with episode four it bounces back with as much fun, vigour and inventiveness as the first two episodes.

The "EXTRAS" include the option to watch Disgaea in the original Japanese (with English subtitles) therebye avoiding the American dub. The point of this being that American anime dubs all too frequently censor the original material, and twist its meaning to suit American cultural imperatives. Also among the extras are textless opening and closing sequences, English and Japanese trailers, and a somewhat pointless interview with a person whom, we are told, was one of the "voice actors".

Overall, I very much enjoyed these first four episodes of the series, but they neverthless lose a star for episode three.
