Get ready to cry tears of joy, folks.
Earlier today, Netflix Japan started streaming a new teaser trailer for Devilman Crybaby. The minute-long teaser offers a new look at the show in action, as character dialogue highlights major story beats.
Devilman Crybaby will stream as a Netflix Original project in Spring 2018. Over 190 countries and regions will receive the series, which will have nine spoken audio tracks and 25 subtitle languages.
Devilman Crybaby is a co-production between Aniplex and Dynamic Planning. Masaaki Yuasa (Ping Pong the Animation, Mind Game) will direct the title at Science SARU studio, with Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Berserk: The Golden Age films) writing the screenplay. The Eunyoung Choi will serve as animation producer on the project. Kensuke Ushio will score the soundtrack.
The show is being produced to celebrate Go Nagai’s 50th anniversary as a creative force in the industry.
Netflix describes Devilman Crybaby as:
The protagonist Akira Fudo (Koki Uchiyama) learns from his best friend, Ryo Asuka (Ayumu Murase), that an ancient race of demons has returned to take back the world from humans. Ryo tells Akira that the only way to defeat the demons is to incorporate their supernatural powers, and suggests that he unite with a demon himself. Akira succeeds in transforming into Devilman, who possesses both the powers of a demon and the soul of a human. The battle of Devilman and Akira Fudo begins. The series, comprised of 10 episodes, is a Science SARU production and will launch on Netflix globally in Spring 2018.
The publisher previously streamed a teaser trailer for the project in March, which you can check out below:
