With demons reawakened and humanity in turmoil, a sensitive demon-boy is led into a brutal, degenerate war against evil by his mysterious friend, Ryo. Ryo, a young professor returning from research abroad, takes his pure-hearted, crybaby friend Akira to a decadent party, where things turn demonic. Akira has become a completely different man -- he's stronger and hungrier than ever before. He seeks out Ryo for answers. After getting shut down by his editor, paparazzo Nagasaki gets desperate.
Announced in to mark Nagai's 50th anniversary as a creator, Crybaby was made available for worldwide streaming on January 5, as a Netflix original series. The series updates the original s setting to the 21st century but retains the basic premise of Nagai's manga, following Akira Fudo and his friend Ryo Asuka as they face an ancient race of demons that seek to destroy humanity. Believing the only way to defeat the demons is to obtain their powers, Ryo proposes that Akira unite with a demon; in doing so Akira transforms into the titular Devilman, gaining the powers of a demon but retaining the soul of a human. The anti-war themes of the original Devilman are re-interpreted as a metaphor for bigotry , in which manipulation and paranoia are discussed using the allegory of the demons as " the other ".
Betrayed and exposed, Akira becomes a target. After Miki takes to social media to defend his human soul, she and Miko find themselves under attack. Confronted by Akira, Ryo reveals the truth about demonkind and himself. Humans, demons and devilmen gather for an ultimate battle for the world.
