I don’t think even lightning fast pacing can describe how fast the plot of this story progressed. It whizzed past so fast I suffered quite a bad whiplash at the end of every episode, and it just left me not very satisfied. Which is why, I find this series to be boring, and I’ve decided to drop it at episode 3 while I’m still not that invested in it yet.

The thing is, even if you have an interesting plot, you can’t just shove it down the viewer’s throat in an attempt to get them interested. There needs to be a buildup, and the best way to do that is through characters, and their interactions with each other. However, with Devils Line, it’s like the characters had the author cheat for them or something and decided to fall in love with each other in a flash. I believe, if this was in real life, it would result in what we would describe as “Shotgun Marriage”.

Either way, the point I’m trying to make is that the romance between the 2 main characters just progressed too fast. It progressed WAYYYY too fast. As I’m so affectionately described by the title, it went 2fast2quick. It was basically a 2 step romance, with step 1 being meet each other and step 2 being falling madly in love with each other. What happened to the human interaction? What happened to conflicts in between species? What happened to…the romantic portion of the romance??? It’s as if the series took a timeskip from before they met until they are a couple together, because that’s what it felt to me.

Oh, right, there’s also other things that are prevalent in the story that was quite annoying, namely throwaway characters as well as underdeveloped main characters. But at this point there’s just so many things I can point out that is wrong it’s not really worth it to do so.

Just know that this anime is average at best in my eyes, and this is coming from someone who is very easily entertained.

At least there was good opening and ending songs, I suppose.

 

Final rating: 5/10
Verdict: Sniper bullet confession-blocking.

  1. This one is definitely not good. I’m kind of interested in it anyway, but part of the interest comes from seeing if they can actually manage to find a decent story by the end of it. Not exactly something I’d recommend to others.

      1. It’s true love. He stuck his tongue down her throat on first meeting and that was it, she was sold. Of course, that only works if you are an emo-looking half-vampire. Try it when you are a professor and she’ll freak out. There’s a slight double standard at play here.
