Soft-hearted Akira Fudou has always been somewhat of a pushover. When he reunites with his childhood friend, Ryou Asuka, in a fateful encounter, Ryou reveals to him the terrifying reality of his father's research: demons exist and are planning to claim possession of the earth once again.

Eager to help his friend save humanity, Akira agrees to attend Black Sabbath, a party filled with depravity and corruption, to attempt to merge with a demon. A near-death encounter causes him to unify with Amon, a demon feared amongst even his own kind. Together they form Devilman, a combination of Amon's strength and Akira's pure heart.

After uniting with Amon, Akira begins to fight against the demons with his newfound power, desperate to stop the downfall of all human civilization.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

I absolutely love the 80s OVA’s as well as Devilman: Crybaby. Both are fantastic in their own ways, but I had never read the manga.

At first my impressions were not great. Early on the art is rather basic and very flat to the point it’s very unappealing. Even for manga from the early 70’s the art is just a bit jarring. It was a bit of a chore to get through the first chapter and honestly it’s poorly paced and a bit disconnected with the plot and pacing. By the second chapter things become a bit more clear and more coherent, but still a ...

I did not finish this manga and I do not intend to. I really enjoyed the anime on Netflix so I decided to read the story and it was just not good. There are some alright elements to this story but I think the likable characters are doing all of the heavy lifting. By the time I got to the end of the first volume and they were with Hitler and then with Joan of Arc I really just got sick of the story. Having the anime in mind and knowing what they did in the limited amount of episodes also makes me realize just ...
