I was gonna call Lita new best girl, but looks like she got eaten…and not in the fun way.
Episode 5 was a real change of pace. I wasn’t laughing as much, but I was totally digging the new direction. Granted, it ended predictably, but I’m glad we got some interesting bits about The Demon Tribe. Turns out, Devilman isn’t the first to betray them. If they do end up getting a hold of him like they did Lita, it looks like his punishment will be pretty severe. Frozen in time; not dead, but not quite alive. Pretty dark... At least Lita was finally able to pass on. Just not in the most pleasant of ways. Reminds me that though this show has some of the tropes of a kids action hero show, it totally isn’t for kids xD
I love how each episode has been able to introduce a new and unique demon for Devilman to inevitably kill. The final fights are short, but they’re always pretty fun to watch, despite knowing how they’re going to end.
Episode 6 had a little more horror sprinkled in. There was actually some legit suspense in that one scene where the dude gets boiling whatever dumped on him. I was kinda shocked! And the showdown at the baseball stadium was great. I’m a sucker for giants fighting in the middle of a city. Dat destruction. Dat death. Dat DE-BI-RU-KICK!
Btw, anyone notice that so far every time Devilman has transformed, the animation has always slightly varied in some way? (The parts after he holds his pose and starts flashing yellow; his transition into Devilman mode is always a little different) Pretty neat little detail. Screenshots:
