There are insane amounts of hype surrounding Devilman: Crybaby. This adaptation sounds like an otaku’s wet dream based on the all-star staff working on it. The story is about Akira Fudo, who fuses with a demon when he realized that a normal human being is powerless against the upcoming apocalypse. He becomes Devilman, with the power of a demon and the heart of a human.

The Devilman franchise has spawned more than a dozen different crossovers, remakes and spinoffs since its inception, including manga, OVAs, and a 2004 live-action film.

Devilman: Crybaby show is set to release on Netflix in 2018.
