Avocado Japanese Pop Culture Thread

Weekly Japanese Pop Culture Thread (January 24th, 2018)

Based on Go Nagai’s Devilman manga and directed by Masaaki Yuasa, DEVILMAN crybaby premiered on Netflix earlier this month. It tells the story of a high schooler who attends a bacchanalian party that transforms him into a half-man/half-devil. He then uses his newfound powers to mete out vigilante justice. I’ve watched the first three episodes, and so far, I can say that it’s at the very least a competent boobs-and-gore delivery system. Once I’m through the series, I’ll be able to say if it’s something more.

What have you been watching/reading/eating/playing/listening to lately?
