Synopsis: “Akira Fudo learns from his best friend Ryo Asuka that demons will revive and reclaim the world from humans. With humans hopeless against this threat, Ryo suggests combining with a demon. With this, Akira becomes Devilman, a being with the power of demon but with a human heart.”
The Devilman franchise dates back to the 70’s and has had a long history (mainly as movies), so Netflix bringing this one back as a series is definitely something to keep on your radar. Directed by Masaaki Yuasa (who has worked on Spacy Dandy, Adventure Time and now has my curiosity piqued about his recent films The Night is Short, Walk on Girl and Lu Over the Wall), this trailer for Devilman Crybaby looks like it’ll be trippy, if nothing else and the animation seems to veer more towards the abstract side at times, which is always a good thing!
