1970s TV Anime "Devilman" Writer Masaki Tsuji Highly Praises "DEVILMAN crybaby"

"I am speechless for the creators' sense beyond technique."

Veteran anime scenario writer Masaki Tsuji is now 85, and has been very active on Twitter posting his honest and straight forward opinions on the latest anime works. He served as main writer for the original Devilman TV anime aired in 1972-1973  (he wrote 36 scripts of the 39-episode series) and recently watched the 10 episodes of DEVILMAN crybaby. The new anime adaptation inspired by Go Nagai's Devilman manga was seemingly far beyond his expectation.


"I have watched DEVILMAN crybaby by its 10th episode. I don't care about its dramaturgy, such as the 9th episode's excitement and the 10th episode's composition. I am speechless for the creators' sense beyond technique. I envy you, Nagai Go-chan. Your Devilman is breathing in this Heisei era, it makes me so jealous!"


The 10-episode series DEVILMAN crybaby, directed by Masaaki Yuasa (The Tatami Galaxy, Lu Over

the Wall), is now available on Netflix worldwide.
