Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of Go Nagai and Rui Takatou’s Devilman G manga series, a modern retelling of the horror manga epic that pulls elements from the franchise’s rich forty year history.
When demons begin taking over the bodies of humans, only the strongest survive. When a practicing young witch named Miki Makimura asks her friend Akira Fudo for help with a ritual, the spell is interrupted and Akira is left on the brink of death. His body is overtaken by a powerful being named Amon. Now torn between his humanity and the demon within him, Akira uses his abilities to fight in the war between demons and humans for the future of the world itself!
“There’s not an otaku out there that hasn’t heard the name ‘Devilman,’ but so few actually know what Devilman is even about,” says Editor-in-Chief Adam Arnold. “I think it’s long-past time we fixed that, and with Devilman G, anime and manga fans finally have the perfect entry point into Go Nagai’s iconic franchise that’s inspired countless anime, novels, and movies, and even crossed over into countless others.”
Seven Seas will present the Devilman G manga series for the first time in print in North America as single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on October 17, 2017 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
