posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Devilman crybaby — the new anime based on Go Nagai's Devilman manga — revealed the anime's new visual on Friday. The text on the visual reads, "Kill, as instinct."
The anime will premiere as a Netflix Original Series in early spring of 2018. The anime will be available in 190 countries or territories, with nine spoken languages and 25 subtitle languages.
Masaaki Yuasa (Ping Pong the Animation, Mind Game) is directing the anime at his Science Saru studio. Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Valvrave the Liberator) is writing the script, Eunyoung Choi is serving as animation producer, and Kensuke Ushio (Space Dandy, Ping Pong, A Silent Voice) is composing the music. Aniplex and Dynamic Planning are producing the project.
Nagai launched the original Devilman manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 1972. A television anime adaptation of the manga aired simultaneously that year. The anime and manga series have spawned more than a dozen different spinoffs, crossovers, and remakes since 1972, including manga, OVAs, and a 2004 live-action film. Seven Seas Entertainment will release the original manga in English.
