Pros: Lots of the classic Disgaea LOL humor fans love.
Cons: Watching and re-watching the same scenes looking for the hotspot.
Excerpt: Look out, he's on the hunt for pudding, dood! Prinnies, unite to save yourselves... and your salaries, dood! Disgaea Infinite trails one particular Prinny as he adventures through Laharl's castle trying to make sure the Overlord doesn't find out that you fell asleep on the job and to stop Lord...
Pros: Some good voice acting, Some funny situations, Very nice/clean animations, Very, Very, Short in every regard
