I can't imagine how badly Ryo would be received if Devilman came out today.

I... don't see what's wrong with what he's saying at all. You sound like a bunch of "haha nagai is a retard" smuggos desperately trying to act like every word the man writes is some gold mine of unintentional hilarity.

Maybe it's his casual reference to the great flood, something that did probably happen in their world, but most people would have no idea about.

Am I the only one left on /a/ who actually thought Devilman was a great manga with plenty of unironic redeeming qualities? Is le ebin Ryo irony and "MY FATHER DIED" all that's left now?

It was pretty great and Akira is mad sexy, no homo.

He's Satan.

I think it's dumb to single out individual lines in the dub or the very unprofessoinal scanlation and say "LOL DEVILMAN IS FUCKING STUPID ONLY RETARDS LIKE THIS UNIRONICALLY"

There's a lot of shit that doesn't make sense in the plot, but the same applies to a ton of other stories considered classics. The reason Devilman, like many other fantasy classics, works so well is not because the "plot" makes realistic sense but because it's a thematically coherent emotional journey.
>>137266701
There's no way Nagai was 100% straight, he clearly enjoyed sexualizing both men and women
>>
>>137266737
Right, but no one in the story knows that yet.
>>
>>137266837
Suspension of disbelief, dude. The way he talked and acted and emoted made him feel like a non-human entity stuck in a human body.
>something that did probably happen in their world, but most people would have no idea about.
Why would Ryo of all people not know about it?
>>
>>137266632
>most people would have no idea about
Why would most people not have heard of the Great Flood?
>>
>>137266879
I don't think we're on the same page. Is he not that one saying that line? Is his father?
>>
>>137266918
As a real, historical event? A religious person might.
>>
>>137262050
I wanna fuck around with Ryo
>>
The one plot development in Devilman I can understand people going "lol this is dumb"at was the "underground hippy club" thing. I mean technically you could get a bunch of crazt, high-as-fuck cultists to do that (watch a Spirit Science video if you give humanity too much credit" but how the hell did Ryo build those underground passageways? Did he spend all his dad's money in having a bunch of secret passageways installed? Did his dad already have them for whatever reason? It's not COMPLETELY nonsensical but it's just a huge thing that the manga never elaborated upon in the slightest.

But beyond that and other smaller flaws (the dialogue could be pretty awkward, but even then I dunno if I blame Nagai or the scanlators;it could easily be the latter), it's a well-written story with a good, well-executed theme. It was extremely influential in its time and even now it's fun to read. The manga isn't really good at things like anatomy and perspective but stylistically it's absolutely amazing and very creative.

So then how many of us could agree Devilman, while having some unintentionally funny stuff in it, is overall unironically good?
>>
>>137266967
>it's so dumb that a fallen angel turned human whose dad uncovered a bunch of ancient demonic shit would have some interest in the spiritual. HAHA GOTCHA NAGAI, YOUR GARBAGE WRITING WAS ALWAYS THE PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE OF MANGA
>>
>>137266967
Even most non-religious people would know the story from movies and shit.
>>
>>137266933
It's Ryo.

I just dunno why people are going "le fail writing" at it since it makes sense

It was great. I liked Lady better though.
>>
>>137267354
>I liked Lady better though.
Why? Everything about it seems like a downgrade to me. Especially the whole "God reset everything" twist.
>>
>>137267446
Hell if I know. I've never been able to clearly explain those things. Also, it's been a long time since I read them, so I mostly remember the feeling.
>>
>>137267610
I think Violence Jack is a better follow-up to Devilman than Devilman Lady.

But the shitty OVAs ruined its reputation and the flawed-but-still-awesome manga will never get fully scanlated
>>
So did Angelman win in the end? Or was he actually sentenced to some shit and doomed to kill Devilman over and over?
>>
>>137267736
Well to add to this, the OVAs focused too much on the lamest part of the 80s run of Violence Jack: the huge amount of guro and other weird fetishy stuff, which is also present in series like Berserk but paces itself better. 80s VJ spent too much time on rape and not enough on cool shit.

The 70s shonen run has none of that stuff though, and then there's Shin Violence Jack which is still seinen but kept away from the guro rape. I think Nagai realized adding it to begin with was a bad idea (or maybe it was an editor thing "MAKE IT EDGIER, THIS IS AN ADULT MAGAZINE WITH GORE AND TITS").

What did he mean by this and what is this face suppose to represent are the worst memes of 2015-2016.

I give both 1/5 meme points.

80s Jack ran in several shonen magazines and had to switch constantly because of PTA whining.

No, beginning was ridiculous and I was close to dropping it but then shit hit the fan and I fell in love.

I still like it, even if I don't like the art, though the art concept is still great though.

I'll fight people who say it's worthless though.

Devilman is unironically one of my Top 10 manga. It's the closest thing to perfection I've ever read.

>>137266671
It's one of my favorite manga and I can't believe some jerks like it "ironically" because of some stupid memes
