"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!"
「デビルマン」１０話まで観了する。９話の盛り上がり１０話の構成といったドラマツルギーはどうでもいい，技巧を超えた創り手のセンスに、なにもいう気にならないよ。永井豪ちゃんうらやましい。あなたのデビルマンが平成に息吹いてる，くやしいくらいに！— 辻 真先 (@mtsujiji) 2018年1月11日
The 10-episode series DEVILMAN crybaby, directed by Masaaki Yuasa (The Tatami Galaxy, Lu Over
the Wall), is now available on Netflix worldwide.
