Anime Announcements: Devil Survivor 2, The World God Only Knows S3

With the popularity of Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei Persona series on Playstation 2/PSP/Vita and the recent Persona 4 The Animation, it comes as no surprise that the brand is looking to take advantage of this.  In the January issue of Kadokawa Shoten’s Newtype magazine, it has been revealed that an anime adaptation of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 is in the works and set to air in April 2013.  Seiji Kichi (Persona 4: The Animation) is set to direct the project.

Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2 (MegamiTensei Wiki’s Plot Summary of the Game):

Mysterious invaders called the Septentriones arrive in Japan and begin attacking the country on a Sunday. To fight back, the heroes in Devil Survivor 2 signed a pact with the devil to become the Thirteen Devil Messengers. The Septentriones show up at least once a day and you have a time limit of seven days to defeat them.

The video game is currently available in most countries for Nintendo DS.

Additionally, to many fans’ delight, the long awaited 3rd season of The World God Only Knows has been green-lit.  Also, a spin-off OVA series featuring teen idol character, Nakagawa Kanon, has also been green-lit.  Volume 20 of the manga is expected to release in Japan on Dec. 18th, along with a special OVA of the 2nd episode in the Tenri chapter story arc.

The World God Only Knows (ANN Plot Summary):

Dating sim master Keima Katsuragi wants nothing more than to immerse himself in the 2D world, chasing digital girlfriends. But when the so-called “Capturing God” answers a mysterious email from an unknown sender, Keima finds himself chasing down real-life ladies in an attempt to help the peppy demon Elsie de Lute Irma capture “lost souls” escaped from the depths of hell. Now, lest the explosive collar around his neck detonate, Keima must convince various girls to fall in love with him in order to scare out the souls hiding in their hearts.

Season 1 of The World God Only Knows can be found on Hulu.
