Well, I just saw episode 2 and yeah, quite nice to see a number of the other characters introduced. I'm glad they now have all the introductory explanations out of the way so we no longer have to deal with that. I'm a bit bummed they skipped out on Allen's past though (just the past, I could care less about the random Akuma and the story behind it).

Great episode. I'm liking everything about this show so far, the music the animation and characters. Yeah I was kinda expecting a little more background information on Allen. Maybe next ep eh. At the end of ep he talks about someone called Mana. I'm curious to know who that is.

if you really want to noe go read the manga, because i don't think it's going to come up for a few episodes for a while. And i'm not sure, but is it just me, or Allen's VA doesn't suit him that well?

Also i don't exactly like how the end of the episode ends suddenly.

That's one of the things I'm disappointed about, as I mentioned in my previous post. The anime skipped ahead from chapter 1 to chapter 5 (though the scene with Cross was put in even though it happened in chapter 2). Chapter 3 is where we learn just the tiniest bit of Allen's backstory and who 'Mana' is. Chapter 4 didn't really give anything as important, though we get treated to the end of a scuffle between Allen and some Akuma (I won't say more about that).

I'm really hoping for at least some kind of flashback sequence that puts in the little bit of Allen's backstory that we get in the manga. It just seems like a large omission. Kind of like how I felt about the One Piece anime at first. The manga started off when Luffy was a kid and tried to join Shanks' crew, but the anime instead skipped ahead to the Alvida(sp?) and Axe-hand Morgan arcs before going back to the aforementioned Shanks part as a flashback after Zoro joined. Let's hope they're at least planning to do something like that...

I kind of felt that way when I first started watching the first episode, but by now I've gotten used to it. I think it matches up well...at least to me as of this moment.

As for how the episode ended...it pretty much ended exactly like chapter 7, so it worked for me. Did you also not like how it ended it the manga?

well i too am little disappointed that they haven't got the flashbacks in yet, but i'm sure during the season they eventually will (or else the company will get hate mailed to kingdom come) overall the comedy does lighten up the dark and gloom situation, dunno about Allen's voice right now, kinda feels funny knowing its a girl

Need to brush up on my manga cuz i read it somewhat long ago. That or it could be because i read the volume instead of individual chapters like in jump. (you're prolly gonna say that chapter ended the book )

I agree, and i personally, i don't think she has the ability to bing out Allan's personality, like the funny and awkward moments

The opening kicks ass, so we can expect the anime to be entertaining....
I remember being disappointed when I watched FMA first episode, so.........gonna wait to see more

Anyway: Demons, spiritual powers and stuff seem to be trendy : Death Note and Jigoku Shoujou soon, can't wait to see it.

Your foresight is formidable. Chapter 7 did indeed end the first volume.

Since no one has answered me yet, I'd like to know if somebody knows when DGM will end, or how many episodes it has. I'd similarly like to know if people think it's going to last forever, or will be presented in a finite amount of episodes. Thanks.

Spoiler for The manga so far:


Based on that, I would say this series will be more than 26 episodes, as the manga is already around volume 10 in terms of amount of material. Unless they make an original ending for the anime so they can end it at 26.

Not a bad episode holding my attention. I cant wait to see what everyones Innounce is. Couple of funny parts i think im going to like that science guy he seems like he will be a bit of comedy relief. Cant remember his name but that guy with the sword looks like a bad ass and bad dispostion to go along with it.

Well the manga is still going, and the last few posts have been saying that it might end at 26. So i think 26 would be a good guess. But yah, if it's going to a bad ending like negima first season, then i'd hope it becoems a 50ep-series

Well with a little talk about Allens voice I'd say his voice is perfect for his character, though I dont read the manga so it will come of as different.. still I think for the comic moments his voice is great!

I'm always reallly interested in the flashback moments more-so because most of the time they are really well done, hope the'll include it =) Well.. If it is kinda a important scene I would think they'll have it, but its just a matter about when...

naw I predict a 50 episode run or maybe more cus of fillers. then again its possible that the series ends up like negima (the crappy one) and just stops halfway.

i had read early on when they were starting making DGM as an anime that it would be ongoing... the mangaka has said that she initially planned it to be a short manga but that people liked it so much, asfter she took her break, she decided to make it ongoing... with the fact that they have the "Reverse" novels to tell Alan, Yu Kanda and other's histories, i think they will have more than enough material to keep the anime going... instead of fillers, they can always do flashback stories...

All I have to say is ... General Cross wins episode 2!

Well ... actually, I do have more to say. I'm pleased to find the characters likeable so far. Allen is a great lead - plus, his colouring reminds me of Xenosaga's chaos and his voice is a lighter-hearted Touya Akira.

Btw, with minimal spoilers, is Allen's 83% synchronisation ratio considered good or bad?
