Akira Fudo is a shy, gentle teenage boy who lives with Miki Makimura, and her family after his parents died on a trip to the Arctic. One day, Akira’s best friend, Ryo Asuka, asks him to help him when his archaeologist father died after uncovering a mask during an excavation of the ruins of an ancient temple from the Maya civilizationconfirming the existence of demons. Demons have the ability to possessand control includes humans and other demons and to evolve and become stronger. This mask turns out to be a fossilized demon skull, which upon putting the mask on, shows its wearer what the world was like thousands of years ago when demons ruled the earth. Ryo’s plan is to prevent the revival of demons: “To fight a demon, one must become a demon”.

Ryo believes that people like Akira with a pure heart may be able to harness a demon’s powers when possessed and Akira agrees to help after they encounter demons in Ryo’s house. Ryo takes his friend to a nightclubin his father’s basement then picks a fight and draws blood to attract demonic attention. Demons begin to possess the clubbers and threaten Ryo and Akira, until a demon known as Amon – the Lord of War, also called as the Beast of Hell – attempts to possess Akira. However, Akira manages to gain the upper hand of the possession process with Amon and transforms into Devilman. Devilman contains the strength and power of the demon Amon, as well as the heart and soul of Akira, giving Akira complete control.

Once transformed into Devilman, Akira inherits some of Amon’s demonic traits along with his bravery. He becomes very aggressive as well as more confident and courageous, and no longer lets anyone push him around. Throughout the series, Devilman has many battles with the demon hordes, encountering foes such as Sirène the demon bird, the water demon Geruma, and a large turtle-like demon called Jinmen.

Nagai launched the Devilman manga in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 1972. A month later a 39-episode anime series adaptation of the manga titled “Demon Lord Dante,” was developed by Toei and aired the same year.

Since then theseries has since spawned numerous OVAs, manga, novels, and a live-action films in 2004.
