Trying - and failing - to be substantial
12 January 2018 | by catarinakulborg-55855See all my reviews

I'm sorry, but after watching the first 2 episodes of this anime adaptation, I've come to the conclusion that I just cannot take this story seriously. Perhaps it's because I'm at a certain age and I'm not accustomed to the manga storylines of the 70s' and 80s', but even I can tell you that Devilman Crybaby doesn't even come close to the old classics (Akira, Ghost in the shell, etc). The animation's crap. The colours are lifeless and bland, the cgi bleeds into every motion. The script is unintentially hilarious, while it's "intentional" comedy falls flat. Half the time you feel like you're trippin', and the other half you just stare at the screen wondering what the fuck is even going on and why the characters all behave like they're not even real. I'm still not sure if Devilman Crybaby is meant to be a satire, similar to "Sayonara Zetsubou sensei", or if this shounen anime is actually trying to take itself seriously. If it is, then... wow. Just go watch Tokyo Ghoul instead.

All in all, this anime is like a teenage boy's wet dream - a child's made-up image of what adulthood is like. Motorbikes, having sex constantly, doing drugs, boobs everywhere, going to secret orgies... After a while, you just feel like... the fuck, man? :'D This does not reflect reality.

There's also this pretentious sort of nihilism (humanity is inherently evil - especially those who enjoy sex. Goddamned heathens!) that you'll probably get fed up with real quick. I know I did. Ugh. I'm not impressed. Read the manga instead, if you're curious about the story. This anime ain't worth your time.
