LIVE ACTION x CG x ANIME
Running time approx. 115 minutes
The live action version of the hugely popular 70s anime "Devilman" is set to take the world by storm. There has
been advance interest in the movie from about 40 countries, a number expected to reach about 50 and far more
than the previous record for a Toei movie of 30, set by "Battle Royale 2". The extremely violent manga version
by Nagai Go, which has sold over 8 million copies, originally appeared in 1972 in "Shukan Shonen Magajin" and
the anime first aired on TV Asahi in July of that year.
The story tells of a world where demons wreak havoc and
only through being possessed by the demon Amon, Lord of War, can the hero take them on. The dark hero role
of Fudo Akira/Devilman is played by Izaki Hisato while his twin brother Ryusuke plays his friend Asuka Ryo,
who later becomes his arch-enemy. Both are members of the pop group Flame. Also appearing are supermodel
Tominaga Ai as the female demon Siren and Sakai Ayana as the heroine.
