wow! im still not sure what i just saw and i just finished all 10 episodes in one sitting.
Growing up in usa i was excited to see ninja scroll, akira, ghost in the shell back in the 80's. there werent too many anime series available, now a days we have the anime universe in the palm of our hands cause of the net. there are thousands of anime series and movies, yet devilman still stands out in many different ways. im surprised netflix featured devilman cause of the mature themes. it is down right gore and raw in every way possible. it basically does not give two cents about any of that cause its a big part of the concept. the duality of man, good and evil. do we have demons within us, are we more good than bad, how is the balance maintained, who is winning if anybody, what is the endgame, etc. this anime is targeted to the 21 and over group. its very psychological, philosophical, religious, spiritual, funny, sexy, slice of life but most of all, demonic. there will be lots of viewers who will turn away before the 1st ep even ends. the art is very good and unique. the storyline is quite unique as well and its pace is pretty steady. it keeps rockin it steady and knows how to have fun. 2018 anime is starting off guns blazing! its almost like a continuous party with lots of great music, mostly rock and hiphop. so even if your not into all the spiritual stuff, its still one hell of a ride. overall its a deep and dark concept but enjoys itself along the way. hopefully there will be light at the end of the tunnel for the viewers experiencing the trials and tribulations of the devilman.
