HEROtv has announced on their facebook page the channel’s anime line-up for the month of May, and the two new titles are adaptations of popular video games.
Titles to be aired next month are Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe.
Devil May Cry follows the story of the demon hunter known as Dante. As a half demon, half human – he uses his trusty sword Rebellion and his two guns Ebony and Ivory to take on missions. Dante owns and runs “Devil May Cry”, a business that specializes in hunting and killing demon-related problems. Based on the video game series “Devil May Cry”. (–MyAnimeList.net)

Joe is forced to follow her by Captain Blue’s mecha, Six Machine, and after being chased by some random enemies meets Captain Blue in the flesh who grants Joe the power to become an action movie hero in his own right, Viewtiful Joe.
