most anime is cliche and trash. but this was pretty amazing
I didn't know what to expect when I started watching this as I'd never seen any of the older stuff, but I was hooked from the first episode. I actually watched the entire show in one sitting. It was completely insane and I loved it.
A true adaptation of the manga, Devilman is a series following two boys (Ryo and Akira) and their lives after Ryo takes Akira to a Sabbath party and encourages him to be possessed by a demon in the ensuing bloodshed.
The story is quite simple and previous iterations have not been as good, but this series is dark and touching. The animation style is unusual but attractive and suits the themes very well. It's spooky seeing how people act after they have become part demon and the turning points in the series were truly gripping and made me cry out in response.
Definitely worth a watch but be warned there is a lot of violence and sex.
Wait this is only four hours......... gonna watch this whole thing right now, also the guy that said most anime is cliche .... fuck you
Not for the faint-hearted. You have never watched anything quite like this.
Absolutely disgusting! Where can I get more of this material?
I'd really like to know what people have seen in these series. Absolutely bad.
What a beautiful anime. I struggle with shorter series because there's less time for me to connect with characters and buy into storylines that are usually forced to be represented at face value for the sake of time. A lot of limited series struggle with that, and this show does have its downfalls due to cramming everything in ten episodes...but. Devilman Crybaby, I think, doesn't struggle to tell its story and make you feel something--it THRIVES. I think the only small thing I would complain about is that I wish I could've understood more about how this world worked, but the show definitely gives you enough so that you're not confused. I was RAVING at how this show made me feel for each and every one of these characters, even the ones who had very little screen time (ahem...THE RAPPERS!!! I love them so much). The characters' relationships kept me on my toes (I would willingly sacrifice my life for Ryo and Akira's happiness, okay), and the plot and its many conflicts never let me relax. Predictable is not a word in Devilman Crybaby's dictionary.
The animation is absolutely gorgeous; it's definitely different. Sometimes I didn't like it, but for the most part it was refreshing from the usual animation style I've grown accustomed to. I had no idea what this show was about when I started it, so I was totally blindsided by all of the explicit nudity and violence...but MORE IMPORTANTLY: I WAS BLINDSIDED BY THE WAY IT TOOK MY HEART AND SQUEEZED THE LIFE OUT OF IT. Oh man. That ending was absolutely PHENOMENAL. Please watch this show; it's literally only like 4 hours of your time.
Lol that was different.... it’s kinda an awful show, characters are so lazy and underdeveloped that literally like all of them die and I couldn’t care less lol. It also has its moments though, kinda a simple concept and simple animation, but executed in a way that kept me glued to my seat even though I hated it. Weird show, it’s short and though I wouldn’t recommend it anyone if you wanna watch something “edgy” or just plain fucked up then give it a go.
fucking insane show. how do these people come up with this stuff? holy shit.
Wow, this is great. I was unprepared for this, I guess. It's really disturbing, provoking, emotional, erotic. And what an original direction from Masaaki Yuasa!
