An official website has opened for a new anime based on Go Nagai’s Devilman manga which will premiere as a Netflix Original Series in early spring of 2018. The anime, titled Devilman crybaby, will be available in 190 countries or territories, with nine spoken languages and 25 subtitle languages.
In the new series, the protagonist Akira Fudo is informed by his best friend Ryou Asuka that the demons will revive and reclaim the world from the humans. As the humans do not stand a chance against the supernatural power of the demons, Ryou suggests fusing with a demon. Akira becomes Devilman, with the power of a demon and the heart of a human.
Nagai and Yuasa will appear together at a talk show at Anime Japan on March 25. The project marks Go Nagai’s 50th anniversary as a creator.
