Devilman is the name of a manga by Mitsuru Hiruta, who had worked with Go Nagai since Harenchi Gakuen. It was based on the Deviman TV-series and published in Akita Shoten's Bouken Ou magazine from 1972 to 1973.


Very similar to the format of the anime series, the manga had a  monster fo the week style structure each chapter introduceing a new foe for the hero to battle with, often the chapters were based upon the anime episodes and were reworked to fit the format, with some obvious differences and similarites.


  • Akira Fudo: The main protagonist of the manga, he defends the earth against Zennon's demon forces.
  • Zennon: The leader of the Demon Tribe, he sends his troops to try and defeat the Devilman.
  • Miki Makimura: Akira's object of affection whom he must constantly defend from attack.
  • Kensaku Makimura: Miki's younger brother who is easily panicked and frightened, lending to his nickname Tare.
  • Dremoon: Zennon's strongest warrior, sent to do battle with Devilman in the final chapter.
  • Sirene: An agent of the Devil Clan, sent to cause chaos alongside Devilman.
  • Jewel: A high ranking demon killer, sent to assassinate Akira Fudo.
