This starts out with high schooler named Akira Fudo and his best friend, Ryo Asuka. Akira is a shy and clumsy teen who cries a lot. They find themselves in predicament of demons that are of neon colors, different sizes, and different forums. They end up at a party that spirals into a bloodbath when Ryo begins attacking strangers. As the scent of blood lurs in the demons, people are ripped into pieces or transformed into the forums themselves.
Akira was originally a weak young man with the average build for a teenager. boy. He was rather skinny. After his transformation into Devilman, he gained a steady build with darker circles around his eyes and he now then has messy hair. He also grew noticeably taller. Akira was a very sensitive and caring person. As a child growing up, he would help anyone to the best of his ability that he could. Most people knew him as a crybaby who would cry for anyone.

Akira successfully transforms into what he names Devilman, a being with a demon's powers but who retains the soul and heart of a human. This makes Akira want to fight the evil demons and save the world thus sending them all into a brutal, gruesome war against evil. With the fear of demons getting out humanity itself devolves into paranoia and violence and Akira sets out to save other demon-human hybrids like himself as well.
I got hooked on the first EP and there are a total of 10. I really got into the characters themselves each one has kind of their own story and their own personality. There are even sad parts in this anime that made me cry. And the animation itself with the colors was interesting and beautiful. Just the concept of the story is what dragged me in. If you like funny, random, supernatural anime that might make you hate some of the scenes and also cry at the same time this is the anime for you to watch.
My rating 6.5/10
