Finally, I’ve watched it, I have watched the first episode of Devilman: Crybaby. I was so excited about this series and now I’ve watched it. The reason I was so excited is that of Devilman: Crybaby is a classic series. It is the inspiration for many classics like Neon Genesis Evangelion and Parasyte The Maxim. If you have watched it then you know what I’m trying to explain here. This is my Devilman: Crybaby Episode 1 review/first impression.
Before I’ve watched the series I read so many tweets saying Devilman: Crybaby is just like what Berserk should be, it is the best anime of the year 2018. Well for me, I just watched the episode 1, so it’s hard for me to make such statement. But I can say it was an enjoying episode. For the facts, Devilman is a really old series and one of the classic. This is the series that inspired many other authors to write something like it. Kintaro Miura is the artist of the Berserk manga, inspired by this classic of 80’s.
From what I’ve noticed, the first episode of Devilman: Crybaby is very similar to what we see in Berserk. For instance, in both the series there are two guys who are very close friends. Not just this but the character appearance seems to be similar as well. Seeing this feels amazing like the legends are following something so old. DDevilman: Crybaby is not for children, as there are so much nudity and violence in the first episode of the series and this is expected throughout the series.
I know it’s a classic but if you don’t like action and the nudity stuff then I think you should just skip this. Okay so now let me just talk about the episode for a second. So there is a boy in this series who can feel pity for others and tears start to fall from his eyes. The boy later controls the devil and saves human. Sorry, I forgot to mention that according to the series, there are devils living among humans for a very long time. They don’t have any shape and they don’t exist until they possess some other living being. By possessing other they are surviving and evolving themselves. Now there are devils who are able to stay in a shape of humans without anyone noticing them. I don’t want to spoil it for you so I won’t be talking more about the story in this episode of the series. Though I can tell you that you should watch it and enjoy it by yourself. Its animation is quite different from what we usually see. All the Berserk fan says that this should be Berserk anime, just because of the quality.
