Dynamic Planning announced via a press release on Thursday that a new Devilman anime based on Go Nagai's classic horror action manga will launch this fall via an event screening. Animation studio Actas (Girls und Panzer, Kotetsushin Jeeg) will produce the anime. Additionally, Dynamic Planning will release the below visual for the anime in seven theaters across Japan starting on April 18.
The tagline on the visual reads, "Demon, Awakens" and "This Fall, Descent."
Dynamic Planning will release more information about the anime at a later date.
Nagai launched the original Devilman manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in 1972. The collected volumes of the manga have more than 10 million copies in print. A television anime adaptation of the manga aired simultaneously in 1972.
The anime and manga series have spawned more than a dozen different spinoffs and remakes since 1972, including manga, OVAs, and a 2004 live-action film.
Discotek Media released the original 39-episode television anime series last year.
