Thoughts on Devilman Crybaby. Anonymous 26239

I tried watching Devilman Crybaby, it was too much for me, I feel traumatised. I could go only to episode 2 and I already feel like I've seen the entire show. It's the most graphic anime I've seen so far.
I've actually read the original Devilman manga, and I found it for adorable because of the cute artstyle, and I've also read Devilman Lady which I also liked.
Devilman Crybaby was too extreme and gross for me, and I despise what they've done to Fudou Akira (the black-haired protagonist who is Devilman) - they turned him into a male's wetdream, who has all the girls chasing him and has the perfect physique and completely eroded his charming personality he had in the manga (I don't know if he becomes a better character since I've seen only two episodes). What are your opinions on Crybaby?

it's for the coomers. i thought it was too graphic and explicit, but it reflects the young generations imo as zoomers have been watching porn and other gross things ever since they were children (my little sister said that one of her classmates openly watched porn on her phone on the bus.)

I never made such connection, but now it sounds plausable. In the anime there are scenes where a little boy uses the computer to look at dirty images, and I think that this character was around 6 years old.

Has no one here seen the source material?
The anime might actually be more toned-down. GO Nagi is a proto-coomer.

I thought that it was really really boring

It's been years since I watched it, but it was a "problematic fave" of mine when I watched it. The original Devilman and OVA is like that for me too. People seem to forget that Go Nagai was a raging perverted scrote, and the appeal of Devilman in the 70s was that it was extremely trashy. But the manga is pretty tame in comparison to today's standards. So I think the trashyness of Crybaby and how shocking it is to a modern audience was probably how people in the 70s felt about the original.

I didn't like some of it, though. I didn't like that Sirene was downgraded to be a prostitute and that Akira basically and rapes and kills her midway. I know, it's trashy, and Sirene dies in the original, but I always thought she was cool despite the nude design so it was disappointing. Ryo's modern design has an awful haircut, I miss his old design.

OP, how was Crybaby too much but Devilman Lady not? I personally couldn't handle the Devilman Lady manga because of the…issues, for lack of a better word.

It was pure shit. I didn't really like the manga either and haven't finished it. I seriously don't understand why so many people praise it, from actual connoisseurs to zoomers just getting into anime. It was so uncomfortably explicit, and not in an interesting way, coming from someone that likes ero-guro.
The manga is considered to be a big influence and sure I can recognize that, but the netflix anime was both boring and bad. The plot and the pacing was so ridiculous at some points to the point that it was funny.

yeah i hated it too, it just seemed to have so much gore and porn "just cuz we can". seriously felt like i was watching a fucking shitty porn ova at times

i know the manga is explicit too but it seemed not as bad, from the few chapters i read? i actually kinda liked it lol

It was good for a few memes. I liked the rappers, and thought the one scene of him watching porn at max volume in the school was kind of funny since I've had days where I have the same lack of fucks to give. Other than that, meh, but then I was never attached to the original.

madoka magica but for coomers and faggots

Too much meaningless OC that didn't affect the ending in the least and actively detracted from the relationship between Akira and Ryo, so the ending had less impact. The director should have gone with his own stuff more and made it more distinct than just being a bad adaptation of the manga in a roundabout way. The telepathic call to all the Devilmen of the world being replaced by an inspirational Instagram post just makes me want to laugh and rage.

I thought it was boring and the kind of media people like to pretend is deep but is just over the top for nothing. The music is pretty good though

It didn't have nearly enough gay sex in it, I needed to see Ryo getting that sweet twink pussy absolutely pounded

One of my absolute favorite animated series ever is Kaiba by Maasaki Yuasa. I just want more people to watch this masterpiece over anything else he works on.

I love Kaiba. It's so touching and the opening song gets me in the feels every time and I like how the art style is reminiscent of Osamu Tezuka.

I don't Like it either. I prefer the manga, and I like Yuasa's other anime more but I did like some of the OST tracks. However, like other anons said, Go Nagai was very much an unashamed coomer. I remember in one of his spin offs, I think it was Violence Jack, Ryo and Miki were turned into amputees for fetish purposes.

Eyes still closed…
Sunshine shone…
through the curtains and the noise
I awoke to your voice!
Thinking you'll be by my side..
You and I lay close in heart,
Please save us from being apart.
Time ran too fast to feel
your warmth and love!
Never too long or harsh…
Always, beside you
that's all I wished for…
Never too sad or hard!
Can't bear, losing, my everything…
Doo doo do. Doo doo do. Doo doo do.

Based take. Seeing emotional crackhead ryo being replaced by some apathetic eboy really soured the experience and ended up detracting from his bond with akira

A great rendition of the story. I gave it 10/10.
