Watch Devilman Series in Order – Guide

Published on

Devilman is a series that inspired many brilliant anime of this generation like Neon Genesis Evangelion and Berserk and yet has not been fully appreciated by the masses.

While the latest adaptation is quite unique and a breath of fresh air with its brilliant visuals, soundtrack, and R-rated grotesque action and violence, the 1972 version was also really experimental for that time.

Devilman is full of action and tearing people apart from limb to limb and psychedelic animations and a fast-paced plot that makes every part equally gripping and mind-blowing. The old version is also really good, while the Devilman Crybaby (2018) adapts the story perfectly, the old version will still make your heart pound.

Devilman was originally a manga series that was written and illustrated by Go Nagai. The first Devilman series was adapted by Toei Animations in a 39-episode anime series in 1972. From then on the Devilman has been adapted into several OVAs, movies, and anime series. Devilman tells the story of a teenager, Akira Fudo who lives in a reality where demons exist and want to destroy humanity, and then soon he meets his childhood friend Ryo Asuka who wants his help to get proof of the existence of demons. To get the proof both of them go to an underground demon party, where every satanic and illegal activity happens. After a rave of drugs and manslaughter, the demons show themselves and in turn of events, Akira has to fuse with a demon while still maintaining his human heart. Akira battles several demons with his newfound powers and tries to maintain his heart.
