“Devilman Crybaby” brings together two of the great “Nothing Succeeds Like Excess” geniuses in the anime and manga world, Go Nagai and Masaaki Yuasa. What we have here is a modern day remake/reinterpretation of Go Nagai's classic “Devilman”, now directed by the director of many brilliant and individualistic anime such as “Kemonozume” and “Tatami Galaxy”. And in what may be the start of a trend, all ten episodes of the anime were released simultaneously around the world and in different languages by Netflix.

Even if you haven't seen the original “Devilman” or Go Nagai's remake “Devilman Lady” you have probably heard of this story about how devils start to take over the earth to bring about an apocalyptic end to mankind. So it shouldn't be a surprise that the first episode of “Crybaby” almost immediately starts to provide blood, violence, gore and nudity in the mind-fuck manner that Yuasa creates so well.. This is a story and a series where you leave your critical sense at the door, pick up your beer and popcorn, and prepare to have fun at the most visceral level.

I loved the first episode. However, I'm not about to binge watch the series in a five hour stretch and instead I'll probably watch it on and off over the next week or so, in between trying out other new anime series. So my initial rating is “A” and I am looking forward to seeing more of this Devilish concoction.
