Synopsis

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.

Okay remember how the first Devilman movie had a lot of explaining and build up until the last 15 minutes before the awesome gore fest began…well this movie does not follow that same formula. Mostly, it just gets straight to the point.

Storyline

This movie to me feels like three separate action sequences crammed into one great movie. The first involving a demon who lures Akira into his hideaway just to torture him with a horrifying revelation about his parents. Second is an ambush attack at home targeting the family that is providing Akira with his temporary accommodation. Then lastly the movies core focus is on the read more

If the first ova has most about exposition and few action scenes, then this one is the opposite with plenty of action scenes and few exposition. Kind of.


Instead of explaining what the demons are, we see them now in action. The OVA in 1990 is made by the same company and has most of the cast from the previous OVA.

This OVA now follows Akira Fudo who has now become Devilman, a demon who fights demons hidden in society for sake of justice and humanity. As he gets more used read more

Prologue -

The problem with this movie was the story was set up correctly, but it had a bad flavor to it. I've summarized the key points below.

Pros -

There are actual nasty demons generals sent by Satan to fight against Devilman which could've led to some potentially good fights.

Cons -

Devilman is useless and not a good fighter. No Jeet Kune Do, no Chun Kuk Do, no Tae Kwon Do, no nothing.

Devilman has very few special powers compared to the demon generals. Ironically, Devilman is known as the strongest. That's not even feasible.

Devilman gets his ass kicked like the cover implies. He literally gets tossed read more

This review may contain spoilers. After you read this you will agree why I'm so fucking mad at this movie.

Wow this is TERRIBLE! This is supposed to be about Devilman, a badass demon hunter, why is it about a WIMP that can't even break past some face illusion SHIT that some shell monster throws at it? That battle was fricking lame, they were talking for 15 minutes, but actually it looked more like Devilman was begging for the monster to stop the face illusions. Fucking disgraceful. This movie Devilman gets his ASS KICKED every single battle by all the monsters, including that stupid bird monster read more
