Expectedly, Amon: The Apocalypse of Devilman is an action-saturated anime that hardly lets the viewer up to breathe.
6 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

Fair warning: there are only two ways to enjoy this anime. The first is to have some background information on the series by having watched the other OVA, the television series or read any of the manga. The second way is if you just like lots of blood and fighting. Beware that those are the only ways; almost nothing is explained in this anime, and you will not have a clue as to what is going on otherwise.

This OVA is quite short and has a very disjointed feel to it. What that means is there are a lot of flashbacks and dream sequences, not to mention visual representations of what is going on in Akira's mind. It's not too hard to decipher what is going on, however, and it is a nice, little ride. The basic premise is Devilman kills demons; that's pretty much it. The show delves a little into the concept of humanity, as one would expect from a show about a guy bonded with a demon. But don't look for anything too deep. Character development besides Akira's is null with some characters like Satan appearing for a minute or less and having no impact on the plot at all.

The action sequences make up a good portion of the show and luckily they look good and are satisfying for that dark part in everyone. This is one very bloody anime, and if you don't have the stomach for it you will really not find much to like here. The violence seems to be the big selling point for the anime. They did a good job for the budget they had to work with, but don't be looking for Ghilbi quality.

All in all I can recommend this if you know what to expect or if you like straight-up action anime. Either way will work, but I really do not see a lover of twisting plots or a fully fleshed-out cast liking this one.
