The tagline reads “A Demon Awakens.”

Devilman is one of Go Nagai’s signature works. The original manga ran from 1972 to 1973, and inspired numerous adaptations and sequel works. The most recent Devilman adaptation prior to the new series was a 2004 live-action film that starred Hisato Izaki as the titular Devilman.

Dynamic Planning is a licensing company owned by Go Nagai. The organization was established in 1974 as a sister company to Dynamic Productions, Nagai’s rights management corporation.
