Netflix Briefly Listed Original Devilman Project Based on Go Nagai's Manga
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese version of the Netflix streaming service lists a "Netflix Original Devilman" project as of Thursday. The entry has no videos or images, but includes the following description:
A demon possesses a boy's dead body to do evil. But after falling in love with a human girl, he has a change of heart. Based on Go Nagai's hit manga.
The American web version of Netflix also has the same entry, but the entry does not appear when a user searches or browses the service's catalog.
Netflix has already been streaming the 1972 Devilman television anime series in Japan. While Netflix gives the 1972 anime a similar synopsis to the one above, Netflix's catalog lists the 1972 anime and the "Netflix Original Devilman" project separately.
Thanks to Gwyn Campbell for the news tip
Update: The entry no longer lists a "Netflix Original Devilman" project, although an empty slot remains in certain searches on the Japanese version of the service.
