Synopsis

Devilman features Akira Fudo, a shy and timid teenager who has gone mountain climbing in the Himalayas with his father. While in the middle of the expedition, both father and son are killed in a tragic accident. Akira's body is found and possessed by the demon soldier Devilman, who uses his new human form as a disguise in order to fulfill his mission of causing chaos on Earth in order to pave the way for a demonic invasion of the planet.

Before his mission can begin in earnest, Devilman meets Akira's childhood friend Miki Makimura and quickly falls in love with her. Devilman resolves to protect Miki and humanity as a whole by battling against his fellow demons. Demon Tribe leader Zennon becomes greatly angered at Devilman's betrayal and is quick to send Devilman's former comrades to destroy him. The other demons soon learn that Miki is precious to Devilman and he must now work to protect her, as well as protect himself. Will the power of love be able to overcome that of true evil?

Note: both the anime and manga are two completely different stories but as long as you bear this in mind, Devilman TV is an episodic series super hero series that can be very repetitive but manages to provide gruesome horror or other times some intentionally ridiculous entertainment.

The story begins rather unsettling as the main character Akira Fudo is killed by Devilman, thus he takes over his corpse and becomes Akira. So, in other words our main characters is actually Devilman (or Amon to be more specific with other Devilman material). Despite this key difference, Devilman falls in love with Miki and has sworn to read more

This show changed my life forever. Before I watched Devilman, I felt like something was missing from my life... something important. Then I discovered this. The whole atmosphere of the show simply astonished me.

I fell in love with the characters, especially Mr. Abe and Mr. Craftsman.

I set the Devilman opening as my ringtone. Now whenever my mom calls me, it reminds me of the good times when I watched this show for the first time.

The animation, even though the show was made in the 70s, feels like it has been made today.

That´s how good it is. Thank you, Gou Nagai. Thank read more

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 will be talking about the dubbed version. Why? Because I can and I will explain in a sec why I belive this is actually superior version.
The artstyle is nothing special for times it was made in, and is even a bit too bland in comparison to manga and even newest version. Characters are fun but you know, kudos to the manga rather than the anime here. And I would even go so far saying that the "I am DEVINMAAAAAN" thing was actually kinda anticlimactic comparing anime to manga, it was like attempt of making superhero movie with Jigsaw as the protagonist.
Let's go to the read more
