Not only will Masaaki be directing, Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Valvrave the Liberator) will be writing the script. Aniplex and Dynamic Planning are producing this project.
Devilman eries written and illustrated by Go Nagai, which originally started as an anime adaptation in 1972 based off the concepts of Nagai’s previous manga series. This 39-episode anime series was developed by Toei in 1972, while Nagai began the Devilman as a manga in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine, barely a month before the anime series started. The series has since spawned numerous OVAs, manga, novels, and films.
