Super model Jun has the ability to transform into a Devilman powerful beast. Scouted by a secret government agency, Jun uses her power to fight others of her own kind. Jun battles her own personal demons as she copes with her transformation and being used as weapon.

The characters are given depth and adequate backstory to understand their motivations. The viewer is acutely aware of Jun’s internal struggles as it effects her blooming relationship with Kazumi. Did I mention yuri? There are also other ambiguous sexual tensions in the series.

The animation and soundtrack are dated. Jun’s face is well animated as a model, but her body is sometimes boxy and movements like walking are stiff and unnatural.

This anime mired with manipulation, deceit, conspiracy and monsters is better than expected for a 90′s anime.
