|I like big butts and I can not lie. |
You other brothers can't deny.
Granted though that the artwork is very nice which is a major bonus. I love Nagai's style. It's really great. However, he can't really draw breasts correctly, as they do look like giant basketballs for the most part. Also, Asuka (Ryo's counterpart for Devilman Lady) looks like a freaking transvestite. Though, there is a reason for that as I read on 4chan. Eww. Anyway, she should look more like an actual woman, like how Ryo was done as a man, in-where they reveal the change later where his looks change to a more feminine appearance. Anyhow, I just wanted to comment on the artwork and such, seeing how I'm mostly gonna be talking about the plot.
Chapter 1 - She awakens
Here we are introduced to the lovely and very attractive yet stupidly naive, Jun Fudo. A teacher working at a Japanese high school, who manages a few clubs, is a former Olympic athlete in swimming and has a younger brother who peeps (because Japan) on her... I fucking hate that trope. Because incest is just so fucking hot, right!!!!? Ahem. Now, she goes on a trip with her tennis club (both boys and girls) to a log cabin in the mountains, and that is where shit gets really messed up. They unpack and settle themselves in, but they're not alone, as a Judo team comprised of adult men from some famous school are next door. Then, later on in the day at night, the girls and Fudo (all the boys are tired and hit the sack early) gather around a fire outside and talk about their teacher and her past. But they are not alone, as the men from the judo team approach and ask would they like to have some fun. Though, the scanlators stupidly left a TL note for those under the age of 10 who don't understand that they mean sex. Stupid. If you can't even tell that, then what the hell are you reading this for? Anyhow, the judo men say that Fudo's "breasts are angry", which it then shows her clothes see through and her nipples are erect. Because she just wants to have sex with those random, burly, tank-like strangers. Japan, the country that thinks women want to get raped. Because if they are excited or enjoy it, the action is justified. Japan. Yeah, I know I just took that scene out of context, but this is Japan we're talking about. And seeing how Nagai's stories have changed since after he got married in the 80's, I am assuming that all of this shit is just him being a pervert. That, and he's Japanese. Therefore, my assumption is correct.
|Call me evil but I laughed at this part|
|I highly doubt you want to see the rest of the image|
Anyway, she transforms and first chops off the monsters dick (classy, enter reanimator joke) and then kills the rest. Then, mysterious soldiers run into the building and a also mysterious woman explains a few things. One being that she is Devilman Lady. End! A good start, but I don't think "that" was really necessary.
Chapter 2 - Door of Mistery
Now, this chapter was pretty nice. It covers the aftermath of the ordeal, and all that jazz. Fudo's father also arrives and explains a great deal about the devil beasts, and why she transformed, since him and her mother experimented on her when she was a child, and a bunch of other stuff. It's very nicely paced and flows really well. Good job, Nagai. I have no problems with this chapter... other than a few things. The schoolgirls that were raped were all saved (not my complaint), but one had their neck broken, presumably by one of the monsters. I'm just gonna guess during... yeah... goddamn you, Japan. Anyway, the HA (Human Alliance) covered up the entire event and faked the media that it was a fire that claimed the lives of those who perished, memory wiped the few survivors (except Fudo). However, I doubt they can wipe away the fact that the girls who were raped (including Fudo) are most presumably pregnant due to what happened (also since the devil beasts have been doing that) and their assholes and such (for lack of a better term, what, do you want me to use anus) were stretched by the monsters monstrous 5 meter... yeah... I think you know where I'm going. Anyway, what I mean is that the above isn't something that can simply be forgotten, yet it is neither mentioned or brought up. What went wrong there, Nagai? Where you too busy jerking off? That said, my only other complaint is mid-way through, it teases the rape of Fudo in the form on another teacher who works at the same school proclaiming that he will "rape and eat her".
