NEW DEVILMAN SERIES COMING TO NETFLIX IN 2018


If you're a manga/anime fan, specifically of the long running DEVILMAN series, then you've got something to look forward to in the spring of 2018; Devilman Cry Baby will land three years after the Devilman Vs Cyborg 009 series of 2015. Netflix has released a teaser trailer. (above)

The animation style looks a bit different from past series and movies, but I'm intrigued none the less.
Devilman was created by Go Nagai and released in 1972 as a manga about a month before it
debuted as a 39 episode anime. It tells the story of a boy named Akira Fudo who donned the skull of an ancient demon and became a demon-hero that fights other demons. I haven't had the occasion to read the manga, but I've watched a lot of the anime over the years, some of which is pretty damn horrific in the violence department (check out Amon on YouTube). There's also a live action film, but I can't recommend it, as the CGI is pretty rough, somewhat on par with an episode of Power Rangers.  
If you're unfamiliar with Devilman, check out this clip from The Birth...
