Dubs get a bad rap but this week on Twitter and YouTube, people are finding that even sub fans are in love with one very special dub. It’s filled with happy expletives and over the top acting GOLD! At first, you may feel cringe but it morphs into sheer adoration.
the english dub for the devilman OVA is fucking wild. it's like an abridged dub. it's hilarious and amazing but at the same time i wish they put more of a serious effort at times.

Here are some of the funniest lines from the original Devilman dub compiled in one video.
Fans are quick to point out that there are reasons to watch Devilman for more than just the hilarity of the dub.
A lot of people I'm seeing are only talking about the Devilman OVAs when talking about the English dub scenes, but definitely watch them subbed because the animation is beautifully stylized and Nagai's original creation adapted ideally. [gif thread] pic.twitter.com/sBu5t7dhWx

Fans are taking notice of the Devilman OVAs partly because of the success of Netflix’s Devilman Crybaby. And now people are asking the eternal question:
dub or sub for devilman crybaby?
