Seven Seas Entertainment has announced the license acquisition of Go Nagai and Rui Takato’s Devilman G manga series.
This modern retelling of the horror manga epic focuses on a practicing young witch named Miki Makimura.
Only the strongest survive in this world where demons begin taking over the bodies of humans, and it is when she asks her friend Akira Fudo for help with a ritual; that the spell is interrupted and Akira is left on the brink of death.
His body is then overtaken by a powerful being named Amon, and now torn between his humanity and the demon within him he uses his newfound abilities to fight in the war between demons and humans for the future of the world.
Editor-in-chief Adman Arnold states;
There’s not an otaku out there that hasn’t heard the name ‘Devilman,’ but so few actually know what Devilman is even about. With Devilman G, anime and manga fans finally have the perfect entry point into Go Nagai’s iconic franchise.
Seven Seas will present the Devilman G manga series for the first time in print in North America as single volume editions.
Volume 1 will be released on October 17, 2017 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
