A new Devilman anime series was announced today, Devilman crybaby, which will stream on Netflix in Japan in the Spring of 2018. The anime will be an adaptation of the original 1972 Devilman manga, including the manga's ending which has never been adapted before.
This new anime is a celebration of Devilman creator Go Nagai's (Mazinger Z aka. Tranzor Z, Cutie Honey) 50th year as a professional; his first work being 1967's Meakashi Polikichi manga. Devilman is also celebrating an anniversary this year, as the manga and first anime series for the character started in 1972, marking 45 years.
In the anime:
"… protagonist Akira Fudo hears from his best friend Ryō Asuka that the demons will revive and reclaim the world from humans. As humans have no chance against the demons' power, Ryō suggests combining with a demon. Akira becomes Devilman, a being with the power of a demon and the heart of a human."
Devilman crybaby will be directed Maasaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Ping Pong The Animation), known for his wild and free-flowing style. The animation will be produced by Yuasa's studio Science SARU. The script will be by Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress), with music by Kensuke Ushio (Ping Pong The Animation).
The anime will stream in 190 countries, though it was not specified what countries/territories these will be outside of Japan. It will also be dubbed into 9 different languages, and have 25 subtitled languages. Though it wasn't officially announced for the US, there is a chance it will reach our shores. The anime Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman was also announced for the 190 countries and did stream in the US. Cyborg 009's most recent series, Cyborg 009: Call of Justice, also streamed on Netflix in Japan and made it to our shores. The listing of an original Devilman series was also briefly listed on the US site, so there's a good chance it's happening.
