Outline

An animated series available on a streaming service and based on NAGAI Go’s manga Devilman, DEVILMAN crybaby was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the artist’s debut despite claims that the violent imagery and expansive theme of the manga cannot be animated. The story begins with the reunion of the crybaby high schooler FUDO Akira and his childhood friend ASUKA Ryo. The series is directed by YUASA Masaaki.
