    Devilman Crybaby (Season 1)

    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    I watched the first episode last night and it melted my brain. Holy shit is it demented.

    8 have you watched any previous Devilman shows? Worth checking out?

    I fucking love Go Nagai, especially his influence on the '70s revival/pastiche anime with stuff like Mazinkaiser, Shin Getter Robo and Giant Robo.

    My entire familiarity of Devilman is from reading the manga. I've seen some of the original anime here and there, but I never paid attention to any of the adaptations, really. I tend to not care much about the super faithful series adaptations (I avoided watching the Death Note anime for the longest time because I'd read the comic). I only checked this out because it looks like it's taking a way trippier approach than any of the previous ones. Glad I did.

    There are parts of this that are very hard to stomach. I'm surprised I was able to make it through it and I don't know that if I'd known exactly what would be in it before diving in that I'd have watched it.

    It's a hell of an achievement, though. Yuasa and Choi are incredible.

    Good lord. I can't believe Netflix put their name on this! That first episode is something else.

    Yuasa's fluid take on the human body is absolutely perfect for this kind of grotesque body horror.

    I like the staccato storytelling, too. It's full of non-sequitur sequences and the dialogue tends to just jump ahead to the big moments rather than flowing like conversations. A couple of times it had montages that don't bother with context. Really adds to the weirdness of the thing so that it's not just the freaky kind of weird.

    I really dislike the storytelling. I'm too OCD for non-sequitur stuff.

    What language was that? Not Japanese. Not English. Sounded South African.

    Curious that you don't think it sounded Japanese, because it is. They're voiced by Japanese rappers Ken the 390 and Young Dais.

    Sounds like Japanese to me. Really damn fast Japanese.

    Can vouch that even though they make the English translations rhyme, they're somehow really good translations of Japanese rap.

    Having only watched a little bit of the (very different) 70s TV anime and not having read Nagai's manga, do the rapping kids have an analogue in the source?

    This series does really cool stuff with the idea of textual adaptation.

    So I've been watching the English track, and they left the rapping kids in Japanese, so I was really surprised when in Ep 4 we suddenly got an English language rap, and it's far from half-assed. They put in a lot of work in releasing this for the English market. Which I guess makes sense since Netflix commissioned this to be a worldwide release.

    The same studio that funded and released new VeggieTales funded and released Devilman Crybaby. What a world.

    HA!

    I guess it's the same when I listen to the Beatles they don't sound British.

    Dunno. SMH.

    I have to wonder if anyone at Netflix even saw this before it was released. This shit is straight up nasty.
