How familiar are you with Go Nagai’s Devilman? Which one? The story has had several iterations across the years, ranging from gory and terrifying to Saturday morning cartoon (literally)! And there’s about to be another remake of the story, which Go Nagai considers his “magnum opus.”
The original Devilman debuted in two very different forms. On television, it was an edgy, but still youth-targeted, anime series about a demon named Devilman who assumed the life of Akira Fudo in order to wreak havoc on Earth, but found himself warming to humanity (and Akira’s childhood friend Miki) instead. But as a manga, it was a far grittier story.
