OKAY LETS GO! Shin Devilman, is so bad, its actually hilarious and I 100% recommend reading if you want a good laugh (do be warned it is INCREDIBLY insensitive especially to native Americans and Jewish people). Story gets a 2 because JESUS CHRIST WHAT SERIOUSLY WHO WHY AND WHAT, ITS CONFUSING OFFENSIVE AND JUST SO BAD, THE ONLY REASON IT GETS A 2 IS BECAUSE HONESTLY IT WAS FUNNY AND I GUESS ONLY KINDA BAD IN CONCEPT WHAT THE HELL EVEN WAS THE ENDING I HAD READ IT TWICE TO EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS GOING ON, EVEN THEN I THINK I GOT IT WRONG.

Honestly the title of this should be renamed to Ryo and Akira's Excellent Adventure. In contrast to the unapologetic nature and social-commentary of Devilman.

It's not a bad story by any means as it's your simple run of the mill time travel shenanigans. Sometimes I interpret this as some kind of buddy cop comedy adventure about two dudes fucking up time and killing demons. It didn't ruin the experience for me as I read more

When you're creating a sequel to a previous work that has "New" or "Shin" in the title, you're normally setting a high bar for yourself. Shin Megami Tensei spawned a fantastic franchise that completely eclipsed its first few Megami Tensei games. New Super Mario Bros rejuvenated Mario's side-scrolling series and sold 30 million copies, and spawned a ton of sequels. There's probably some more examples but I don't feel like recalling them.

But then there's Shin Devilman. The title may suggest something like a reboot, or a re-imagining, or a sequel. But instead of vastly expanding the Devilman universe, Shin Devilman goes for a more scaled-back read more
