How much are they going to butcher the manga with the upcoming anime? Will Actas live up to the expectations?
The new anime is based on the 1970's TV series, not the original manga.
You're a gay nigger.
>During the Ice Age, demons, humanity's natural predator, were imprisoned in ice. Previously in hibernation, the demons are escaping in increasing numbers. Ryo Asuka's father was killed by demons after his archaeological explorations took him too close to the truth. After reading his father's notes, Ryo calls on the help of his best friend, Akira Fudo, to fight the demons. But only a demon can stand a chance against another, so Akira must let himself be possessed, but maintain control over the demon inside him. Akira, now as Devilman, must face the heightening onslaught of demon attacks to save humanity.
Ironically, Grimoire is based more on the TV show than the manga; considering Amon killed Akira on the first chapter and Ryo was retconned in favor of Himura, a villain from the TV show
inb4 that /m/ faggots starts with new jersey bar racial slurs out of the blue as soon he discovers there are south americans, frenchs or italians in the thread -no matter what they're saying
But I did like Miki still quite a lot.
I liked all the devilman characters.
I like Miki too but only manga Miki. Not really a fan of Miki as a symbol of peace, martyr of love, etc. Grimoire Miki seems too much like a moeblob and the mangaka is obviously in love of her
Original manga Miki is best.
She always came off a normal but fierce girl to me, none of this symbol of peace crap.
Nothing said on that.
Nagai sometimes draw Devilman blue. His colour doesn't say anything about what it will be based on.
Most likely it will be a mixture of the two.
By modern anime customs they'll flatten out everything that made the original story interesting. And give everybody cellphones and tablets.
A bit more seriously, I don't know. There's a lot of raw goodness in Devilman that can be easily be ruined by a poor execution. Even if they follow most of the story beats they can mess it up if the mood isn't right.
She was more of a symbol of peace in the original than in any other incarnation that tries to force her into the role. She was the one person who represented everything Akira was leaving behind as he kept losing touch with his humanity and the entire world went into paranoid overload.
Just a simple strong-willed girl.
I hope they keep the perpetually pissed-off facial expressions.
