A very problematic show worth more for its historical value rather than the entertainment. the over all premise of the show is generally intriguing, intense, sweet and romantic but the whole potential is going to waste. I'd really love to see a new series that would try to bring this story to life.

I've watched it now for the 1st time so there was no nostalgic appliance for me. The show has an extremely episodic structure, and past the first 3 episodes there's no importance to the order you're viewing them, including the final episodes!

I myself got fed up with the show's static and unprogressive nature read more

I originally never planned to add this title in my Nostalgia series because I considered it passable and a title that didn’t offer anything to the industry. But after several complains by various retro lovers I went to all the trouble to edit my entire project just so I can shoehorn it. So here you go; my take on Devilman.

Devilman is the first supernatural anti-hero in anime history. He was a demon sent to destroy humanity but because his human host loved a girl, he decided to read more

Recommendations

Both Nagai properties were worked on contemporaneously by the same studio, and it shows. They're animated quite similarly (stiff figures, bright colors) and both feature a simple monster-of-the-week plot. I'm relatively sure that the two shows even share actors; Kouji and Akira are essentially the same character.
they have similarity themes of apocalyptic events ... however the characters plot focus good within evil .... meaning to say that the story is focusing in the bad side that making it good side .. opposite in reality on what we learn in our society...
