To promote the final [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]] Apocalypse of Devilman in 1999, Go Nagai resurrected the manga in two forms; one is a collection of short stories entitled '''Neo-Devilman''' where he and many other writers/artists (17 to be precise) contribute to the Devilman mythos with their own spin-offs and visions for the original tale, the other is where Nagai teamed up with Yuu Kinutani to create a 6 Volume manga simply called '''AMON''', which is centered around and expanding the events between humanity's persecution of demon/human hybrids and the anticipation for Devilman vs. Satan's final battle; Go Nagai writes the tale while Yuu Kinutani pencils with his high detailed art. In 2005 these two teamed up again to create '''Strange Days''', a single manga volume centered around a group of Devilmen, Kira and Ryuu, clashing at Devilman vs. Satan's final battle; it tells their story of how their rivalry came to be during the persecution against Devilmen.

''Devilman'' was a {{manga}} and {{anime}} series that combined superhero tropes with supernatural horror. It was made by the famous Japanese author Creator/GoNagai in the 1970s. It became enormously popular and influential in Japan; it was later adapted in the form of a {{OVA}} and Live Action Movie. There was even an animated {{crossover}} movie where Devilman met another of Nagai's famous creations, ''Anime/MazingerZ''.

The story involves a boy named Akira, who discovers the Earth is being invaded by demons. His friend Ryo convinces him that the only way to stop the demons is to have him merge with one of them. Their plan succeeds, and Akira gains the ability to transform into a superpowerful, batlike demon. As Devilman, he fights various bizarre demons, most notably the harpy-like Siren, and the turtle-like Jinmen, while still trying to lead a normal life.
