Purchasers can watch the episodes in two formats: the original on-air version aired by its key station and the re-run version by local stations. A two-minute and 15-second pilot film is also included for the first time. The bonus disc contains "Devilman Memorial" (60 minutes), which was originally released in VHS and Laser Disc in 1999 and has never been released in DVD. The box's outer jacket illustration is newly drawn by Kazuhiro Ochi (Angel Tales, PoPoLoCrois). The price for the set id 48,600 yen (about 393 US dollars).
