Devils cannot take form without a living host. However, if the will of an individual is strong enough, they can overcome the demon and make its power their own, becoming a Devilman.

Weak and unassuming, Akira Fudou has always had a bleeding heart. So when his childhood friend Ryou Asuka asks for his help in uncovering devils, Akira accepts without hesitation. However, to Akira's surprise, the place they go to is Sabbath: an immoral party of debauchery and degeneracy. Amidst bloodshed and death, demons possess the partiers, turning their bodies into grotesque monsters, and begin wreaking havoc. In a reckless attempt to save his best friend, Akira unwittingly merges with the devil Amon and becomes a Devilman, gaining the power to defeat the remaining demons.

Though it grants him great power, this new partnership awakens an insatiable and primeval part of Akira. Having the body of a devil but the same crybaby heart, Akira works alongside Ryou, destroying those that harm humanity and his loved ones.

I don't understand the hype...What a complete waste of time. They rely so heavily on sex and gore but the story was just absolutely awful. If I could give this series a 0 out of 10 I would.

First of all, let's address the English dialogue. Can we stop it? If you can't speak English, just stick with Japanese and subtitle it. The English dialogue was so cringy and unnecessary. Just stop it. They also used Arabic letters to showcase that people from an Arabic origin were discussing the news but the letters meant nothing. It wasn't even a sentence, just letters. Did the creators not read more

As a devilman fan, I'd been looking forward to this anime since it was announced. I'd dabbled in yuasa's work before so I was excited to see how he'd adapt one of my favorite Mangas. The anime itself, though it was toted as a true adaptation, changed a lot of things from the manga for better or worse.

Story: like I said, much was changed from the original material, but I actually didn't mind it so much. It cleared up a lot of the muddy parts from the manga and it structured it in a way that was fun to binge for the Netflix format. Plus, read more

There’s an interesting thought that a good adaptation is one that is completely true to the source, not missing a moment and not changing anything. While this has a basis, I would rather argue that a good adaptation is one that stays true to the source while adding something in return, taking full advantage of the different medium along the way. Otherwise, what’s the point in making it?

Devilman: Crybaby is an adaptation of Go Nagai’s controversial manga, infamous for its extreme content and polarizing conclusion. Nagai’s original work is high in concept but lacking in cohesion. The skeleton for something truly great is there, and read more

First time reviewing! (^_^)

When Devilman Crybaby was first announced, I was pretty hyped. I was a huge fan of Go Nagai's iconic and influential manga. So a more modern take would be pretty cool. The 70's series, while fun, certainly never hit any of the darkness the manga got to. The two OVAs from the 80's did an OK job at adapting some of the manga but were cheesy in many regards. The 90's OVA (Amon Devilman Apocalypse) was cool but was a strange "What if" story. So hearing of getting a new adaptation in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Go Nagai's career was read more
