As a long time fan of the Dragon Ball series, first getting into it via Toonami in the 90s, I'd say it safe to say that the movies of Dragon Ball have been a bit more hit or miss. Many of them having no cannon connection to any part of the series made them seem superfluous and more interesting "what if" scenarios. And many of them lacking quality and good writing when it comes to the memorability of the villains our iconic Z warriors would fight.

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
