Let's continue the Go Nagai works review marathon ! This time with the Devilman prequel "Akuma Kishi", this is a very short story with only 3 chapters, a really quick read but an enjoyable one, some fun facts about the manga are that it is full colored and it was the only manga(that i know of) that had a yearly release schedule, and no, not like Berserk or HxH, cause those in theory have a monthly schedule and just are currently in a irregular due
to the authors constatly going on hiatuses and literally releasing 1 chapter or 2 per year(when they release something), and Akuma Kishii is the opposite, he was scheduled from the begging to be 3 chapters long with 1 released each year, being 2007,2008 and closing in 2009. But lets go back, as you guys probably already know, i dont spoil anything on my reviews cause i like people to fall fresh into stories, but summing up really quick, the story is about Akira having a dream that is a memory from the past from Amon, and it shows how Amon, Silene and Lucifer where a part of God army back in the Eden's Garden paradise times, and how everything fell apart with the return of the demons from the sealed mountains (the prison God made to them), it is a really nice take on the story and really adds a lot to the Devilman canon Universe and to the overall horror/action manga industry, so with that in mind, to discover how things turned out and what that dream meant, you will have to find out for yourselves, have a nice read pals !
