Devilman is a franchise created by Go Nagai as well as one of Dynamic Productions' most famous series next to Mazinger. Nagai created the franchise when asked to make a downplayed version of Demon Lord Dante for an anime. Shortly after the anime was produced, Nagai released a manga version that told a separate storyline. The franchise amassed several spin-offs including Devilman G, Amon: The Darkside of the Devilman, and Devilman Lady.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Devilman tells the story of Akira Fudo and his fight against the demons that have been appearing throughout Japan as the titular Devilman.

Depending on the media, the series goes through different turns of events. In the anime the original Akira Fudo was killed and Devilman was once an elite guard of Zennon who took Akira's form until deciding to protect humanity after falling in love with Akira's childhood friend Miki Makimura. In the manga version, Akira's friend Ryo Asuka (later revealed to be the fallen angel Satan) has Akira bonded to the exceptionally powerful demon Amon. Keeping his humanity due to his pure heart, Akira fights the demons alongside Ryo until Ryo regains his memories as Satan.
