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.

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 protect us from the upcoming genocide. It is another project made by that beast of a read more

Both are Go Nagai series featuring a brutal hero who battle monsters and demons. While the structure of both anime can be repetitive, they do feature very odd character designs and many unforgettable moments. Cutey Honey is the more colorful of the two but contains the same level of violence as Devilman.
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.
