We’re exactly one week away from Devilman crybaby, a 10-episode anime adaptation of Go Nagai’s 1972 manga series. To remind us all of its impending debut, Netflix Japan has released a new teaser showcasing its art style and characters.

“With demons reawakened and humanity in turmoil, a sensitive demon-boy is led into a brutal, degenerate war against evil by his mysterious friend, Ryo.”

The Devilman manga was serialized in Weekly Shounen Magazine from 1972–1973, home to a dark and violent setting that helped define an era. The Netflix production is led by director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Space Dandy) with companies Aniplex and Dynamic Planning in tow, the latter owned by mangaka Go Nagai himself. At the very least, fans can expect a visual joyride tapped straight from the source material.
