Critic Reviews for Devilman Crybaby Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Can be a difficult watch for Americans, especially if they've never heard of the Devilman franchise before. But it would be a waste to ignore such a gorgeous, disturbing series.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Yuasa's narrative approach, of starting the series with much action and gaggy humor only to turn it into something completely dramatic serves the title quite well, as it retains interest for the whole of the 10 episodes.

Dec 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Masaaki Yuasa's contemporary reprise of Akira Fudo and Ryo Asuka's "love" story is as orgiastically violent and unflinchingly risqué as Nagai's original manga, a fitting tribute to both the creator's oeuvre and the character's storied legacy.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Devilman Crybaby is certainly not suitable for all viewers, but is one of the rare graphic action anime that has an incredible story to back up its fantastic animation.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

It moves from jawdropping to heartbreaking at a moment's notice, but it never strays from being unforgettable.

Jan 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultra-violence and heavy themes may not sound all that enticing, but the series also has its lighter moments, thanks to an offbeat sense of humor that's made Yuasa a fan favorite.

Jan 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Days into 2018, Netflix has released an audacious, unique show that could go down as one of the year's best.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Above all, Devilman: Crybaby is visually enthralling, even when you put aside what's being depicted.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultra-violent animated series is way too intense for kids.

Audience Reviews for Devilman Crybaby: Season 1

  • May 31, 2021
    Devilman Crybaby showcases what it means to be a human. The ability to love and treat others with compassion. We harness the capabilities of mass destruction not worrying about the outcome it has on future generations. This anime has taught me what it means to be a human. We are all supposed to be looking after each other.

    its a totally must watch and an amzing show and anime, I would love if netflix made more like this. Finally something mature and inspired!
  • Mar 11, 2021
    A perfect modernization of the greatest manga series of all time.
  • Mar 02, 2021
    THIOSDF SSHOW IS FUCKING DOGSHIT. DO NOT WATCH.
  • Feb 09, 2021
    Eerie, sexual, and a little grotesque, Devilman Crybaby will take you on one hell of a roller coaster.
  • Jan 10, 2021
    DEVILMAN CRYBABY is a subversive take on human cultures, emphasized by demons inhabiting the same world. The line animation and color pallet are fabulous. There's a significant plot shift mid-way through the first season that makes sense to the plot of the first half of the season but also undercuts everything the story explores up until that point. I felt for the characters in this whole story but the plot shift was jarring, even though at the same time it was for what we were waiting. A plot shift is also different than a plot twist, and the end twist is pretty magnificent. Overall, if viewers don't mind some blatantly overt graphic violence and sexual storytelling, the entire series is worth watching for the end.
  • Sep 28, 2020
    way too short way too many irrelevant sex scenes and nudity way too many depressing twist and turns was more of tear jerker than action anime not enough devilman action worst ending ever everyone dies along with one of the best main characters except for lucifer leaving this hopeless unsatisfied we lost feeling its hopeless for a 2nd season this show had so much potential until it took a couple of wrong turns then it went down the drain from there. ide blame the director what was he thinking was he drunk the whole time
  • Jul 29, 2020
    Not the biggest fan of anime usually, but this anime is my favorite one that i have seen. The entire story is strong and the ending had me sobbing. A wonderful show, very gory, but is very very good.
  • Jul 12, 2020

  • Apr 18, 2020
