''Violence Jack'' is a manga by Creator/GoNagai that was released from 1973 to 1990. It's a sequel to Manga/{{Devilman}} and both a sequel ''and'' prequel to Manga/DevilmanLady. The series is particularly infamous for not only including large amounts of sex and gory violence, but also has cameos from several of Go Nagai's other manga as well. In fact, many of the chapters seem to be dedicated to taking classic Go Nagai series and then [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructing]] them by placing them in Violence Jack's brutal setting.

* UnbuiltTrope: "Violence Jack" was probably the first AfterTheEnd manga published in Japan. Compared to it, manga set in a post-apocalyptic setting, such as ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', are LighterAndSofter. The manga devotes its entire first chapter to showing how it all happened -- with plentiful NightmareFuel scenes of people dying awfully, ''lovingly'' depicted by GoNagai -- including a ''very'' tense build-up to the earthquake -- providing plentiful geographical details and giving a death toll. And afterwards it shows that the resulting world is a CrapsackWorld where people suffer horrific death and abuse at the hands of the worst villains Go Nagai has put to paper, things ALWAYS go FromBadToWorse, and TheHero is rather a VillainProtagonist who does not feel compelled to protect helpless people and only intervenes into a fight if something draws his attention or he would like to bust some heads.

Violence Jack has three {{OAV}}s based on three different arcs from the manga (Harlem Bomber, Evil Town, and Hell's Wind). All three have been released in the US, the UK, Italy, and France, but were heavily censored (especially Evil Town). It wasn't until a few years later that uncensored editions were released.

Italy got lucky with Evil Town and got the least censored version, leading many to seek it out. It wasn't until a few years later that uncensored editions were released.

Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticAdaptation: The arcs the [=OVAs=] cover, Harlem Bomber (Harem Bomber), Evil Town and Hellís Wind, are actually set quite far apart in the manga; thatís why Jackís behavior in Harlem Bomber seems completely odd compared to how much of a nicer person he is in Evil Town, in the Manga he had already gone through several experiences that made him become a better person.
