One of which is Psycho Jenny. Much like how Science SARU showed off how it made its fantastic running animation, this gif goes from Psycho Jenny's outline to the final creation.
Though she has a bigger presence in the original Devilman series, her inclusion here was a great sight for fans and the new take is just as savage as the original.
Now is the best time to be a fan of Devilman. Devilman Crybaby on Netflix is setting a fire among the anime fandom for its unflinching, incredibly stylized take on Go Nagai's original content (including the best running in anime since Naruto). It's also proving to be such a hit that a reboot manga titled Devilman: Grimoire, a sequel manga Devilman vs. Hades are getting published as well, and its own brand of scotch.
Devilman Crybaby premiered on January 5 on Netflix, and runs for ten episodes. The series will be available in 190 countries, seven different languages, and 23 subtitle languages. The seriesstars Koki Uchiyama, who fans would recognize as Nisekoi's Raku Ichijo and Soul Eater's Soul Evans, as main character Akira Fudo, Megumi Han (Hunter x Hunter's Gon Freecss) as Miki Makimura, and Ayumu Murase (Black Clover's Luck Voltia) as Ryo Asuka.
For those unfamiliar with Devilman, first created by Go Nagai, the series follows Akira Fudo, a young over achieving student without a violent bone in his body. When Yokai, who had been banned by God into an alternate dimension, began crossing over into the human realm, Akira fuses with the Devil Amon, and becomes Devilman. After fusing with Amon, Akira realizes that controlling the power isn't as easy as he hoped. Not only must Akira fight the demons, but he's got to fight to keep control of his own body.
Nagai's original manga started its run in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in 1972, and an anime series was produced by Toei Animation and ran for 39 episodes. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga for its English release, and the series has spwaned numerous anime specials, and live-action films.
