Directed by Yuasa. This more than makes up for Vs. 009 being watered down slop.
>— Oshiyama and Yuasa are currently working on what seems to be a TV series, to be announced sometime in March (likely at AnimeJapan). They wouldn’t be surprised if it were rated R considering all the sexual content in it.
Presumably this is what they were talking about.
I don't think this'll be a straight adaptation of the manga.
If you want a caricature of the source material, yeah.
In that single video I see more of the spirit of Devilman's visual inclinations than in anything both those directors have worked on. I believe in Yuasa.
>gaijin streaming service is trying to save anime
THIS IS WHAT I WAS WAITING FOR ALL MY FUCKING LIFE
What in the literal fuck.
The last Go Nagai adaptation was Cutie Honey Tears.
Did Nagai go full emo or what?
>This more than makes up for Vs. 009 being watered down
If you consider it as a Cyborg 009 anime, it's perfectly fine.
It wouldn't feel fair if Devilman was the main show. Remember, Nagai was an assistant to Ishinomori, so the sensei should obviously have his work be put in the lime light before the kohai.
Jun Kawagoe understood that and gave us a wonderful 009 OVA.
Why, do you think the inability of having one of his usual projects with zero commercial appeal funded for years somehow made him lose his talent?
And judging from the rest of your post, you believe he is not capable of capturing the spirit of Nagai, which is just ridiculous.
>What is space dandy
Sequel to an arthouse passion project done by different people. It's gonna be shit.
The manga is a turd and only Oshii polished a turd into gold thus far.
Because the 2001 show did it better than anyone ever will. Just look at how thick the outlines are, it's fucking glorious
Because business. They see a potential market and they are investing in it.
Streaming and online shows seem to be the future.
You have amazon funding stuff, just like Netflix is doing with shows and movies or YouTube with youtube red (even if their work sucks).
Besides, foreign people financing anime is not that uncommon. Italy recently funded the new Lupin show.
I wanted Imagawa for this. I think his slow paced style can really work with a series like Devilman.
Devilman is an old manga, so there wasn't a lot of padding and dragging out back then. Things just kind of happened.
Imagawa would provide the padding it needs so that the scenes can be more impactful, while also showing us what the characters are going through, and something like that has only been expanded in newer Devilman novels and manga.
And it shows. Go read it and culture yourself instead of spouting uninformed shit on an image board.
>your break out hit is a smut manga
>the next generation of mangaka/directors grows up reading your dreck
>you become an acclaimed author
Sorry I'll stop.
Have some cool Devilman pictures instead.
Italy fucking loves Lupin though
Honestly, I don't know why Netflix would support something like Devilman, no one knows what Devilman is over here. And why call it Crybaby? That's a shit name.
The man has literally made it, Nagai owns like a whole publisher and can just continuously draw what he wants whenever he feels like it and cash on his creations for as long as he lives, and when he dies his family can just keep the business up.
Now we need a Devilman Lady adaptation and the world will be saved.
Isn't this pretty much just like one of those "if I was a multi-millionaire..." fantasies people used to have here? Paying for a proper, full adaptation of an old favourite to be directed by a favourite director?
I know this thread is gonna end up being just shitposts like
>netflix ruining anime
>yuasa is pretentious
>nagai is a hack
>manime faggots to >>>/v/
but I for one am fuckin' stoked. Assuming this is gonna adapt the whole manga, I can only think of a handful of directors I'd be glad to hear are working on it and Yuasa is one of them. If his work on Ping Pong is any indication he's gonna go out of his way to stay faithful to the spirit and style of the original while making relatively small changes and liberties for the sake of staying concise and thematically appropriate. What's more is that the PV leads me to believe that's what we're getting, so I can't really feel anything but optimistic about this news.
That said, the thread is still a huge shitposting magnet and any threads once the show is out is gonna be full of similar shitflinging so I guess it'll be another case of "watch and enjoy and just completely avoid it on /a/" like many other shows. Still, I'm hyped.
I liked it a lot, its like Devilman but +10 volumes.
My body is fucking ready.
>Directed by Yuasa
Uh fucking WHAT? Unbelievable.
>and the superior Genius Party segment
Kemonozume proved that Yuasa knows how to do horror and violence with a genuine artistic flare. However, I'm slightly disappointed that his affinity towards rough and expresionalist artwork is nowhere to be seen in his latest Science SARU works.
>I meant the ending specifically.
A masterpiece of manga endings.
>open the site
>it starts dripping blood
I love that Yuasa is back to working on a ton of stuff.
It's just great, he's doing so much for us.
I like how it offers you the option to either turn the music on or off.
Too many sites just start blasting music when you go right in.
God if a full adaptation of the manga finally happens I don't know what I'm gonna do with myself.
Kemonozume's horror and violence ultimately were just a big joke, though (and I'm not saying it in a derogatory way).
Nagai's naif and shocking gore and cruelty are completely different.
I'm cautiously looking forward to this. On one hand I love Devilman and I'd shank a homeless guy to get a proper adaption but on the other, with Netflix in charge, I have my doubts about this being it. If they're really pushing towards an R rating then that raises the stakes a little higher but based on the synopses ANN provided I can't tell if this is going to follow the manga or not. I hope I'm not disappointed.
Also, I'm currently watching Devilman Lady and as I'm working my way through it I keep wondering if this has any canon standing or if it was just Nagai's 'lol lets genderbend this shit' fanfiction fulfilled? Also, why does Asuka look like a man in every single episode, every single frame? Is she like that in the manga too?
I couldn't help but think that if it weren't for the blinding red on everything it would be a godamn fantastic website. Loads like a dream, it's not designed by someone who's never used a website and it gives you all the information you want in the exact order you want it in and yet it's also very stylish and flashy.
Pretty impressive site all-round honestly.
polite sage for off-topic
I think Yuasa is better at creepy scariness, honestly.
Devilman Pachinko site from a few years ago.
They just start playing music once you get in, it's annoying as fuck.
There's also the nuro devilman site which was great but they took it down.
The Lady anime is full Chiaki Konaka serious mode like the Dororon Enma kun OVA, the manga is actually more Nagai-esque in the sense that goes from lolnagai to shin megami tensei and then swings back all the time.
I like both personally, I want to give Rei a good dicking.
That's subjective, but I'm saying that the approach is completely different.
If Yuasa is self aware and ironic, Nagai is genuine and direct in a disturbing way. Someone is posting Nekojiru's stuff, and she was much closer to Nagai that Yuasa ever was. Which is also why Cat Soup completely missed the point of her work.
Holy shit, is a faithful adaption actually happening? In my lifetime? And thanks to Netflix of all companies?
wtf is happening in this timeline?
Aside from that one guy who keeps posting the same ten tumblr images of Ryo saying his father died I rarely see much shitposting in Devilman threads. Just hope they don't end up like Dynamic Pro related anything threads on /m/ with one insane person rambling about spics for hundreds of posts.
>mfw all these announcements
My life is complete.
What are your thoughts on Netflix picking up all this stuff though, are they the saviour of anime?
Because they never adapted the manga to the fullest. The tv 70s series didn't have the same story (since the manga ran concurrently, but ended up vastly different from the anime)
The 80s ovas adapted the beginning of the manga, but they never did the whole thing. The Amon OVA was just a spinoff to a Devilman spinoff manga.
And Cyborg 009 vs Devilman was just a crossover.
I think Tumblr will literally go nuts over this. Some of the most fanatical Devilman fags can be found there.
But why though? It doesn't seem like the site where oldfags or people who care enough to watch older series congregate. And it can't be the lure of homosexuality because they're not exactly bishonen in the manga and its made clear that its not REALLY gay anyway since Ryou is a hermaphoridte. But its definitely still gay though.
>no one knows what Devilman is over here.
We have Netflix in Japan now too, you know.
I don't think this will be released for American Netflix right away. It might be JP exclusive for a while.
I'll physically fight you, bitch. Devilman is one of the greatest works of our time.
>implying Devilman can be judged on a simple bad to good metric
People like you will never understand Devilman.
It's a once in a life time kind of work that transcends the human spirit.
It's just another website, dude. Just like not everyone on /a/ is a /pol/lack, not everyone on tumblr gives a shit about social justice or gender fluidity or whatever other meme shit is associated with the site.
No. Read the ANN article you dumbfuck.
>A new anime based on Go Nagai's Devilman manga will premiere as a Netflix Original Series in early spring of 2018. The anime, titled Devilman crybaby, will be available in 190 countries or territories, with nine spoken languages and 25 subtitle languages
>But why though? It doesn't seem like the site where oldfags congregate
It pretty much is this though. It's just 4chan without reaction images, and you dump your screencaps or shitty commentary. It's that or twitter, but tumblr works better as a blogging platform than blogspot because of the photo uploads, so it caught on.
You control the content you see, so you can just stick to reading what you want to hear. You can basically live in your own bubble, for better or worse.
Oh nice. I hadn't read anything about it yet, glad to be proven wrong.
>Netflix and Adult Swim are bringing back western pandering anime
What a time to be alive
>"What happens if you remove the Devil from the man?"
The whole evolving theme and forgotten battle of God with 009 also went with Decilmans own theme.
With a fuccboi devil man becoming a literal angel through the union of human, machine, and demon. Then Eve ruined it.
>Netflix and Adult Swim are bringing back western pandering anime
I'd shit myself to death if that meant Trigun getting a new, full adaptation.
I watched the first OVA before reading the manga years ago, it was probably one of the most nonsensical things I've ever seen. It was fantastic in the demon department though, as Devilman should be.
I found the destruction of the Makimura family very disappointing. This is astonishing in the manga with extremely good paneling and expressiveness but in the OAV it was very edgy and not particulary impressive.
>full Trigun adaptation
That shit would be fucking great.
Also, has Yasuhiro Nightow created anything relevant after Gungrave?
Devilman is why SMT has more than five guys named Akira who are part demon at some point.
Is Berserk literally the only 3DCG show you've watched?
>/a/ loves Devilman now
I bet most of you guys haven't even read all the manga.
Yeah and he actually could have gotten the Akira cock had he played his cards right instead of being a complete retard.
Damn it Satan! You could have had the greatest gaybro romance in all of anime but you fucked it up!
People like Devilman, but it's pleb tier.
People don't truly know Nagai if they haven't read Dororon Enbi chan or Iron Virgin Jun, which at this point they'll probably hate him for life.
Because it was as a human Male that Akira came to know Ryo, and even has a herm. still sees him as Ryo.
I also like how no one mentioned Violence Jack in this thread.
New Violence Jack OVA when?
Netflix will air ANYTHING as long as they have exclusive distribution and they think there's a market for it. They want subscribers, and they're willing to hand over hard wads of cash to get it done.
If they're in the anime business, this changes everything for the industry. That's not hyperbole, things are going to flip upside down.
Theyve been in for about a couple years now, theyve got polygon by the balls.
Because the animation style looks mildly different, i imagine they said the same dumb shit when they saw stuff like rotoscoping
No, but every arc is different anyway.
Here's the thing: they don't meddle. They don't write notes to producers and make changes, they just let it fly. If it's terrible, they cut their loses and move on.
I'm pretty okay with this.
tumblr had a field day redrawing that page.
I prefer this one.
The designs completely understood the manga aesthetism, look at this demonic smile
>Miki and Ryo making out
What's going on here?
>The TV show is a kid show
This is false though. Even 70s tv show was violent as fuck.
That's what the Netflix blurb implied but the PV includes the car chase, rave scene, first transformation carnage and what looks like the witch hunt burning aftermath, so who knows.
Exactly, so pretending you're superior to someone else for liking less widely spread Nagai works is pretty pathetic.
Guess I have to read this now.
>Exactly, so pretending you're superior to someone else for liking less widely spread Nagai works is pretty pathetic.
Adaptations always kill those people.
>muh reddit knows about Nagai!
>muh subculture! muh fanbase!
>I can't like Nagai now
I can't remember the source, but it's what I remember. If I find it, I'll post it again. It's been probably 5+ years though. And no I'm not talking about the OVAs. I'm talking about the 70s tv series.
Its cool, I thought it was CG at first too but the longer I watched the trailer the more I realized that something was off. I'm gonna accept what >>154632877 said as truth and believe its rotoscoped. As long as the characters aren't rotoscoped, I don't mind if the backgrounds/cars are so whatevs. And the only thing that looked truly wrong was the car so I'll take it.
This is fucking awesome news. Spring 2018 can't come fast enough.
Not to crap on the scanlators but Devilman's release is partially based on frog scans and the scans aren't high quality. I'd much rather see original Devilman get a proper release than the Miki wankfest that is G.
She was fine in the 70s anime.
G also features monsters exclusively from the anime, so it's based on both.
>Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Valvrave the Liberator) is writing the script.
Umanosuke's OVAs had wonderful animation but I would never say this art style captures the manga's spirit. Look at the grinning shots in Crybaby's trailer and tell me those aren't early Nagai as fuck.
If they got the same files as the ones I got there a few years back then yes.
I get why they went with crybaby as the title. The nips probably thought that Devilman would cry for all the innocent lives lost, but by using crybaby, it makes Devilman look like a giant pussy.
As if the Devilman / Evangelion parallels weren't enough.
You think I don't know that?
But that was pre-transformation. The show is called Devilman Crybaby, and people would assume it's a show about a devilman hero who's also a giant pussy.
Akira manned the fuck up after transformation.
It's a bad title.
It's from 小松原一男アニメーション画集, I bought it on Mandarake. Right now there's a copy available for 85000JPY which is probably as good as it gets. It's a great book but don't buy it just for Devilman, do it if you like Komatsubara's works.
Like he did with the Berserk trilogy? I feel so much better now, thanks.
I'm saying that even the people don't like things like betrayals of the protagonist and angry mobs, for instance, would be missing the point here since that already happened in the manga and OVAs
Crybaby is growing for me. It sounds so out-of-place for Devilman that it can work. Besides, I always wanted more emphasis on Akira's loss of humanity and doubts about his own self. There were already seeds on Shin Devilman and Amon Devilman could make a pretty sweet job if the writer knew what the hell he was doing. Crybaby sounds like a reminder about who Akira was before the merge
Go see a shrink dude
TV Devilman was absolutely aimed at young kids. Nagai himself said the manga offered far more freedom because it was aimed at older audiences, it's obviously an 'older teens' shonen manga while Devilman TV is more of a family friendly thing. Japan allows more violence in kids' cartoons.
I really really hope the Netflix synopsis implying it's going with the 70s anime story was a mistake because I like the fusion concept from the manga far, far more than "Akira is killed by a demon who takes over but then becomes a good guy".
Look at the bright side, Ryo took both Akira and Miki's v-cards
This shit looks great.
Shin Devilman gets hated on way too much. Sure it's not as good and doesn't make sense in the "canon" but it's very in tune with Devilman's themes of the demonic nature of humanity and the humanization of demons.
As someone who uses the site I can confirm the Tumblr social justice types who got into Devilman later found out about stuff like Lady and Violence Jack and were triggered by how Nagai was actually problematic
To be fair I don't care much about Lady myself (not because it's triggering or w/e dumb shit though) but 70s Jack is great
I'm a little worried by the influence the "art house" western hipster fanbase could have on Yuasa's views though, I really hope he doesn't tone shit down to get his gay Adventure Time friends to like the show more
Okay if this is true and it's a proper adaptation then I'm not worried about Yuasa toning shit down anymore, there's no way he'd censor Nagai's ideas
Has anyone here actually read Devilman? It's fucking shit. The tone jumps from lighthearted to edgy in seconds, for no other reason than shock value. Don't fall into the fallacy that
> Because this is old, it must be a classic.
Judge Devilman by the same standards you judge anything else. It doesn't hold up.
Shin Devilman is no longer a separate manga. The newer Japanese edition has some new pages added to the finale, some chapter reordering, and Shin now sits at volume 3 of Devilman. I know this because I own the French edition by black box which itself is based on the Italian edition which is based on the newer Japanese editions.
It is one of his big 3 mainstream works, but I wouldn't say it's pleb-tier. However, as you said, people don't truly know Nagai unless they've read his other lesser known works.
Then again, the people here aren't actual fans.
>Judge Devilman by the same standards you judge anything else
Devilman was my first 70s manga and I had zero "ahh the classics" bias towards it. the tone shifting is part of why I liked it.
only boring ANNtier western critics have a problem with Devilman/70s Nagai. actually-worthwhile creators love it and consider it a huge influence and I'm glad Yuasa is part of them.
the finale is actual no-bullshit horror, not even demon-focused. goes from wacky demon action to literal right wing death squads & a little kid being decapitated.
but that's why it's great & why the point works so well, believable real-world horror is much more messed up than over-the-top demon gore. the Violence Jack manga also only really feels like true horror when it's about human drama without the supernatural elements (I still love the later stuff though)
No. Nothing to do with lesser works. The point I'm making is that reading Nagai is like watching two girls 1 cup porn.
Nagai is not for normies. Devilman is his most accessible work.
To reiterate, have you seen the kind of people that were influenced by Nagai? You got the guy who did the shadow hearts rpg game series. You got the guy who did Tokyo Gore Police. He wanted to do a Violence Jack live action adaptation but that never came to fruition. You got Miura who did Berserk. And most important of all, you got Hideaki Anno. This is the kind of people that Nagai influenced.
>The point I'm making is that reading Nagai is like watching two girls 1 cup porn.
this is fucking retarded dude, only triggered ANN faggots and Youtube celebs find his work particularly gross. Berserk's guro elements are actually worse, technically something like 80s Violence Jack is more messed up CONCEPTUALLY but the art is too cartoony to be seriously shocking.
jun's 2000s /b/ tier rape comedy is '2girls1cup-tier'? give me a break.
stuff like Jack's first arc or the finale of Devilman are the only times I found myself truly disturbed reading Nagai manga and it wasn't even for the violence
Suda51 listed Violence Jack as his favorite manga of all time. Which is really funny since he has this really obnoxious art-house hipster fanbase that misunderstands his work (LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW IS A CRITICISM OF DISGUSTING OBJECTIFICATION OF WOEMYN even though James Gunn himself, who wrote the game, said game journos who get triggered by video game tits are dumb and there's nothing wrong with having games about sexy girls) and considers things like Jack devoid of artistic merit.
>busterbeam sperging out
The only person triggered is you spic
the 80s one is flawed but fun. basing it on the novels was a bad idea which seemed to be a stupid yet common choice back then (Harmagedon being based on the novel adaptation instead of the Ishinomori manga for example) and some of the novel writer's changes are idiotic, but it still has some very, very good moments and really impressive Ghibliesque animation.
the first OVA is much better than The Demon Bird but the latter is still worthwhile for the animation.
This is actually kinda funny, because I was talking to someone earlier about how Suda51 can be seen as pretty much the video game equivalent of Go Nagai-lite, particularly in No More Heroes.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't think Travis is better than your average Nagai protag however.
The Devilman manga is my all-time favourite fictional work. Just wanted to say that.
Everything except the Toei anime is required viewing.
The Toei anime is a "what would Devilman be like if we tried marketing him as a superhero for children?" what-if.
It literally ends with Akira fighting a big bad demon named GOD (seriously) and then him and his girlfriend live happily ever after.
