Crybaby by Quirkilicious Crybaby by Quirkilicious
I've been exhausted with the state of contemporary Anime culture, so I was relieved to find Devilman Crybaby. It's artistically and narratively ambitious with very well crafted character stories, just a critically phenomenal production!


If you enjoy my fanart please give my original graphic novel SIN a try!

So I started this anime and the first two episodes left me a bit skeptical is it worth it I've heard very good things about it and the art style is very unique

I'm with you too, the anime was a breath of fresh air. I kind of miss those days where they just didn't give a fuck about how shocking scenes were.  Seeing something like this come out every now and then is a treat.

After watching the first episode, I was ready to write it off as just anime exploitation, and not go any further than that. But then morbid curiosity took over, and I found myself enjoying it more toward the end as everything continued to escalate toward the finale. With all that said, it bugs me how much of the source material is there in Crybaby, and is never really acknowledged. Like, hey. Just look at the end of that manga volume in the kid's room to see where this goes, and you can avoid it! =P

Amazing work here!! Especially love how you did Devilman himself.

I really enjoyed Devilman Crybaby. I found Akira to be a very well done and relatable character.

Awesome piece of work.  :heart:

Devilman is one of my few guilty pleasures.  While I'm often turned off by the angst-driven and high gore anime, Devilman is one I try to check out when I'm able.

I don't think it's angst driven, or at least annoyingly so? As for the high gore... yea, I was actually a little turned off by it. Once you get a grasp of the direction/style though it's less distracting!

Please, don't misunderstand me.  Drama is often a driving force with anime/manga, but for me, it can get over the top where I get tired of it really fast or to the point where I don't want to watch a lot of the newer stuff.  It's like the gore.  People might like it, though I would say that there must be an appeal to some for it, but I would prefer a better story, better characters, and more appeal in other areas.

Now, you do bring up a good point.  With stronger other points, the things I often find annoying can be less distracting, which would be nice.  However, a lot of these anime are pushed out rapidly to make more money.  I got and understand that.  But, with all that said ... it's hard to get me interested in it these days.

I started watching and collecting anime back in the 1990s after growing up with a few shows that hit the shores of the United States and became a fan almost right away.  My collection includes shows like the Dirty Pair, Bubblegum Crisis, Ranma 1/2, Gatchaman (the uncut Viz release), and Dominion Tank Police.  The collection grew thanks to NewType Magazine and Media Play, especially when they went out of business.

The newer stuff really has to work even harder to get me interested.

It's not you, it's the industry. Like I said I've been rather exhausted by contemporary/pop Anime because a lot of it is just crap.

DMC isn't, trust.

I will never get over the dance club scene where there is a big titted bird demon. This anime was fucking weird then and it's even weirder now. But awesome art here though.

I've noticed that you are very critical of a lot of anime(not a bad thing at all) so I am curious, what are like you favorite series or series that you personally think are the best ? Great work as always btw, your composition is top notch !

I think I'm just culturally out of touch with most of the medium's key demographic, which appears to be juveniles and mass appeal/accessibility.

I really like Satoshi Kon productions (Paranoia Agent, Milennium Actress, Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika  etc.), Shinchiro Watanabe stuff (C.Bebop, S.Champloo, S.Dandy), I'm bias for classic Sci fi like Akira, Ghost in the Shell (films&series), U.C. Gundam, Macross Zero/Plus, Evangelion (films)

There've been some great movies in the early 2000's; Tekkonkinkreet, Summer Wars, Sword of the Stranger, Blood:TLV

Some other notable series in the past decade are Deathnote, Eureka Seven, Psycho Pass and ...?

That's all I can get off the top of my head, hope it helps!

Oh and it goes without saying, Ghibli stuff is always solid.

Yeah I can get down with your choices . A lot of the things you mentioned that I have also seen have a good sense of storytelling and most importantly for me, flow(Samurai Champloo,Bebop,Deathnote). I do enjoy mainstream things like naruto, bleach, etc but they tend to have the same old cliches and overly drawn out plots ! 

I definitely need to get around to checking out ghost of the Shell, I see so much fan art of it all the time and it seems really good.

The GitS movies are very different from the series both in tone and storytelling, they share the same themes though.

I like them equally for what they are, I suggest checking out both! :thumbsup:
