Plot Summary Edit
Akira Fudo learns from his best friend Ryo Asuka that demons will revive and reclaim the world from humans. With humans hopeless against this threat, Ryo suggests combining with a demon. With this, Akira becomes Devilman, a being with the power of demon but with a human heart.
- This marks the very first time, in over four decades, that the character Ryo Asuka is featured in an official anime series. Prior to this, Ryo Asuka had almost exclusively appeared in OVAs until now.
- That being said, recent reports imply (due to translation) that Asuka will be given a much larger focus than before while still retaining the original story.
- Atsuko Tanaka will be reprising her role as Sirene, as she previously voiced her in the Playstation 1 adaptation of Devilman from 2000.
