Akira has only recently been turned into Devilman, the demon with a
human soul to fight all evil demons, and now he has to face the
turtle-like demon Jinmen, the demon who has killed Akira's mother. The
point here is that Jinmen doesn't really kill people, he just devours them
and lets them live on as part of his shell, so in a way Akira's mother
lives through Jinmen, and should Jinmen die, she will die as well. It
takes Devilman quite some time to come to the conclusion that those living
in Jinmen's shell suffer from a fate worse then death, and thus he in the
end has no reservations killing Jinmen.
Then Akira's girlfriend and her
family are attacked by not one but two demons. These demons don't prove to
be too much of a match for Devilman, but of course they drain his powers
nevertheless - and then Siren attacks, a female flying demon who has sent
the other demons to weaken her adversary, and eventually she's on the
verge of killing Devilman, but he is saved by his friend and mentor Ryo.
Devilman then turns the tables on Siren and takes her out, and with the
help of her own talon, too - but then another demon appears on the scene
and offers Siren to merge with him, even if that means he has to give up
his own life for her sake, and the merged demon manages to defeat and
almost kill Devilman ... but his life (if not much else) is saved once
again by Ryo.
Not really special, just demon battle heaped upon
demon battle, with narration and character development getting lost in the
process. At least there is enough gore, female nudity and a few grotesque
scenes to keep one entertained, but if you look for an extra dimension to
all the carnage, you quite simply won't find it.
