You're absolutely right. Anyone expecting the show to be JUST like the game is in for a shock. I've seen the first five episodes, and it's followed...closely to the game's storyline, although "closely" might be a bit strong.Originally Posted by milliennium_fox
Episode six I think they're finally introducing Maderas (or whatever his name would be in Japanese)!
How did it go from apparently "Jenesky" to "Hoggmeiser", Jenesky being in the anime and Hoggmeiser being in the game? Oh well, I like how he actually has a name in the anime instead of "Hoggmeiser", which still sums him up pretty well. And yay, Koganesky (Jenesky/Hoggmeiser's son) had a bigger role this time around!
You know, in the game I always wondered where Laharl put his sword when he used his special moves Blazing Knuckle and Overlord's Wrath. The anime explains how that works pretty well (his little cloak/cape/scarf thing pretty much absorbs the sword).
His cape/cloak/scarf can turn into wings! Wtf!? That's AWESOME!
