Demons exist and their power is beyond what humans can fathom. In fact they are so strong that humans do not stand a chance against them in a fight.

The only thing strong enough to defeat a demon is another demon and it is trough this logic that Ryo Asuka hatches the plan to have his good-hearted friend Akira Fudo possessed by a demon. If a person is of pure of heart then he might be able to control the demon that posses him and thereby acquire power equal to a demon. After raising some hell in a club the plan works and Akira is possessed by the powerful demon known as Amon.

Now Akira is humanities sole champion of justice against the hidden demon menace that has plagued humanity since the dawn of time.

The focus of the first OVA movie was to establish Akira's character and his relationships with the supporting cast, so this sequel has more room to explore and present a series of intense action sequences. The central themes of Devilman are horror and the spectacle of watching the protagonist battle demons, both of which are executed perfectly in this second OVA.

Initially, we encounter Jinmen - an unsightly demon turtle that feeds on its victims while displaying their faces on its shell as if they were trophies. The prey, including Akira's mother, suffer and plead for assistance without realizing their inevitable fate. Next, a demon invasion ...

“Devilman: Yochou Sirene-hen” looks and sounds good, and is an entertaining watch, although it’s lacking in terms of plot and setup.

The biggest issue with this OVA is that it’s not a direct continuation of its prequel. Characters are introduced that the main character seems to know, but the audience doesn’t, as they weren’t in the first OVA. Also, the timeline isn’t clear: the events here definitely happen after those in “Devilman: Tanjou-hen,” but it’s vague as to how much time has passed since then. And the characters look different here, particularly Akira, even though the designer is the same.

There isn’t much of a plot in ...

Part 2 of the 80's/90's OVA Devilman trilogy is Devilman: The Demon Bird. As the title implies, this anime is largely just about the fight between Devilman and the "harpie lady" known as Sirene. It's funny because this fight doesn't even happen until like halfway through the hour long OVA, with the first half consisting of Akira battling 2 other demons. That's it. There's really no story or character development to speak of here. The art/animation is once again very detailed, far surpassing the Netflix Devilman Crybaby in that department. I'll also praise the sound design here, since the "buzzsaw sound effect" when Sirene shot ...
