THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Holy shit, that was intense on so many levels. Probably the best episode yet. I haven't read the manga so I don't know if this is something out of there but whoa. Didn't expect that kind of imagery. The ending song for this episode was so nice and touching to let play after that series of events. It even came with that nice scene of Miku and Akira on the bike aftewards. I hope everyone stayed to watch through the credits.

That was really dark. Rip miki, miki and the good rapper Gang members.
The ending scene mended my heart a little bit.

Holy shit, this episode was really fucked up. It felt even more uncomforting that the manga. It could mainly be because Crybaby did a better job at establishing Miki and Miko's characters beforehand. Man, I absolutely loved how Akira reacted at the end. The manga's main message here was "What differentiates a man and a demon?", and this episode shows how even people can become demons. The first half of the episode was really good too, with Akira convincing the others to stop fighting. It really shows how easily humans can change their opinions and how easily influence we are. They're fighting against other humans because they were told to do so, and then they befriend a Devilman because they felt forced to follow the others.

The ED this time was nice, especially with that after ED scene.

5/5

Holy fucking shit. This was so intense. Amazing job. Miki's character was much more than the one she had in the manga. She represents the hope, the positivity and faith. This episode raised many questions as to humanity, morality and humans' ugliness and violence. The script and the direction were epic.

5/5 ready for the finale, although I'm bummed that Ryo/ Akira's confrontation will probably be more rushed than I hoped

The fact that miki died is already sad in so many levels, but what make this even more sad, is the fact that she have her clothes rip off her body and than they quartered her. I feel so sick that this make me lost the strenght to watch the final episode

I was hoping for Miko to die already, screw listening to her lecture on what's to be a human she's the last person I want to see acting as if she didn't kill any humans. RIP to Kun the freestyler. I don't blame the humans for behaving in such manner in the Devilman universe they've seen so much shit that they will kill a human that is perceived to be some type of shapeshifting/hybrid or a traitor/sympathizer. The real scumbag is Ryo dude caused all this chaos in the first place, he's a straight up devil. Decent ep I don't feel any sympathy for the demons they can all die in droves.

I feel nothing for Miko she killed the one dude did that notice her from the very start even rapped his heart out to her, I was really hoping the little bro would have killed her rather then her acting like some high mighty character at the end

I do feel really sad for Miki tho :( she was sweet and didn't need to die.

PSA: Miko apparently did not kill the rapper. He died at the club.

Miki was too good for this world. At this point, there's no hope. Destroy it. Let everyone rot in hell.

I have just watched it and... it was too much :<
Now I have the feeling to just quit and not watch the last ep. So depressing on so many levels. Seems there are only demons left.

Soundtrack 10/10! <3

Anyone know the name of the song played at the end credits of this episode? I wanna find it. Soundtrack is indeed one of the best I've heard in anime for a while, almost rivals Zankyou no Terror's beautiful soundtack.

Anime itself is getting close to a 10 for me. seriously so emotional

Great episode and a big portion of it was completely original (not in the 1972 manga)

The ending song was really soothing after all that tension

I kinda like to think that the bike scene at the end is actually heaven for Miki and Akira. Heaven is pretty much confirmed to exist in the anime so that would mean that those who remained good would end up there. Ik the manga goes out a little differently but pls god just let me be happy :(((

What in the hell was that...

Akira makes an emotional plea to humans to stop killing each other. Children are the first to see the true nature of his heart; some adults follow suit. Miki makes a plea of her own online for Akira's sake that somehow gets her branded as a witch?? Miki, Miko, and practically everyone else gets killed cuz mobs.

Not a bad episode, but I certainly didn't "love" or "like" it.

3/5

This was a horrible death for prolly the most likable character the show has to offer. They didn't just kill her, they ripped her to shreds and put her remains on spikes.

Poor Miki. I wish Akira would've done the same to the trash humans dancing in front of the fire with Miki's remains instead of burning them away with hellfire(?).

HOLY SHIT. I literally thought he was going to scoop her up as he grabbed the "baton" but nope...and when they opened the car door and the rapper just fell out.... what a brutally savage episode. This one definitely made me feel a range of emotions. Damn.

I wish they could've showed wat happened to the shades guy I mean they only showed Miko dropping his shades and his bloody hand eaten. Also this episode made me cry so hard:( but I mean it's not like Miki would've survived ep 10 but she should've been able to say goodbye to Akira I mean he had no breaks. Everyone he loved died before he got to say goodbye :(. His mom dying hurt so much too cuz he didn't get to show her his shoe laces !!! And he only got to speak to her face after she died like why with all the feels!! OMG my eyes were red after this anime I was as surprised to see all these people die as when I watched akame ga kill. :(((

What a fucking ballsy episode. One, to show the murder of Miki ON SCREEN and depict it that brutally. And 2, to actually show their heads on stakes. It takes balls to show it and not cut away or do a silhouette. Really fucking impressed.

That was intense. The parallel between Miki's online speech and Akira's speech to the people was really well done, even if Miki's speech itself seemed a little lacking in content. It was heartfelt.

Really sad to see Miko die, she was such a babe. I'm glad we got some emotional resolution between her and Miki though, before they were both skewered and paraded around. Speaking of, Akira (consciously) killed people! Further blurring the line between demon and human. He was pushed to the brink. The knife in Miki's back was horrifying.

Looking forward to the showdown between Ryo and Akira. What is Ryo? What does he want with Akira? There's quite literally nothing left but those two.

This was such a sad episode... in other anime everyone would have survived through some kind of miracle
I liked the scene with Miko and Miki. She did 'hate' but love her at the same time

the 2 rappers who turned against them kinda annoyed me. I guess that 1 tall guy was just scared so that's why he did it. but I don't know what's up with the small one. he realized that Miko is a devilman I suppose and thought she killed his friend.. but still at the end he's celebrating with all the other people with his friends on stakes

also I'm pretty sure Miko didn't kill the guy at the club or at least not consciously. (it might have been similar to Akiras awakening) She always had his glasses with him and if she didn't care about him why would she do that

Maaaaan, I was destroyed by Miki's death. By the flow of the episode, I thought Akira would make it just in time to save her after their friends died, but when that knife stabbed her, I was left jaw dropped. Probably the most emotional episode in the series T_T.

I don't think she killed him, I think he just died in the massacre. She walks around with his shades seemingly as a reminder of him, similar to the way the gay guy walks around with the necklace. My theory is that a few people get fully possessed, one, two or none become devilmen and the rest are just slaughtered.

All the scenes of the sabbath party (Miko, Akira and the gay guy) pretty much hint that as the most likely scenario.

MY HEART JUST BROKE IN A MILLION PIECES. WHAT THE FUCKKKKKKKK.

Such an intense and sad episode. I really thought Akira would come at the end and save Miko. WHY. JUST WHY.
The episode just shows how Humans are capable of being worse than demons. Ughh!

This series has been amazing. This episode being the best so far. On to the final episode now!

Rip Miki and Miko, they deserved to survive, humans can be pieces of shit sometimes; humans can be as much a devil as devils are.
