Episode 29
Expensive gifts come at a price.
This demon could have make quite a living for himself if he went into human organ trade market.

Episode 30
Breaking news!Demon exposed most hideous human behavior with his magic.
On the other news:everyone behaves exactly as usual and no change was observed.
Spoiler:
It was interesting to see Akira acting so maturely,first he prioritized the tasks(safety first)then he protected his group and after that he left it in safe place with most knowledgeable(I said knowledgeable not competent)person available as leader.All of that without even turning into Devilman.

Episode 33
Oh hi Todoroki!Devilman is Boku no Hero Academia sequel!Confirmed!
Both directing and animation in this episode were...unusual.It worked in few shots,but for the most part it didn't.

Episode 34
Lala stupidity saves the day!

Episode 35
"I hope animators didn't go on strike or something"
Hihihihihi
"I almost didn't get any lines this episode."
Hahahahaha
Spoiler:
That fight was great and surprisingly long.Demon Marshall really put Devilman through his paces,it wasn't a walk in the park.


Episode 36
Spoiler:
Lala death was kinda out of nowhere.It did added some dramatic tension to the fight,but it wasn't foreshadowed at all.

So I decided to watch 3 episodes and end the show today.

Episode 37
Nature strikes back...take that humanity!We took down Isengard,so this little earth won't be a problem!

Episode 38
Capitan's Planet worst enemy...Commander Moon!
Spoiler:
This entire Akira-leaves-Miki-4eva is starting to drag a bit..


Episode 39
Spoiler:
Duel between Devil and God was only appropriate way to end this show.

I think I know those roaring samples from somewhere...something about Godzilla or something.

Next in queue are:
Devilman:Tanjou-hen(11th-17th September)
Devilman:Yochou Sirene-hen(18th-24th September)
Amon:Devilman Mokushiroku(25th September-1st October)

Devilman: Tanjou-hen aka Devilman Birth
WARNING:This show contains gore and nudity!
If someone was thrown away by Devilman TV series goofiness then this OVA is perfect remedy for it.Dark, gory and with almost no ties to 70s show.
Production values were just through the roof.Animation,backgrounds,characters and creatures designs,voice acting everything was impressive(80s OVAs for you).
I really liked this new look on Devilman.
Spoiler:
Story was surprisingly Lovecraftian.Humanity discovers ancient truth beyond comprehension and every one who gets close either goes insane or turns into hideous monster.

Devilman: Yochou Sirene-hen aka Devilman-Siren,the Demon Bird
And we return to high production values 80s OVAs.
Well directed,gorgeously animated with amazing soundtrack by Kenji Kawai,what is not to like here.Granted Siren could have been established a little bit more,but overall I had very positive experience.

VA trivia:
Japanese voice actresses for Siren(Yoshiko Sakakibara) also voiced Haman Karn from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and. Mobile Suit ZZ Gundam.

Amon: Devilman Mokushiroku aka Apocalypse of Devilman
That was honestly really bad.Production values were just average,story was poorly constructed and paced,characters appeared and disappeared without any point.It felt like 40 minutes long ad for manga(which it probably was).
What would greatly benefited this show is downtime.Introduce audience to the settings,establish characters,explain plot...do something instead of making this nonsensical mess.
