It’s been more than 2 years…
“Where’s Devilman Crybaby Season 2?“
It was on January 5, 2018, when Netflix premiered Devilman Crybaby for the 1st time.
At that time, it was the 2nd Netflix original anime after Castelvania anime in 2017.
And right away it became an instant hit.
Look at the IMDB ratings, Rotten Tomatoes ratings, you’ll get it what I’m saying.
Now, even 2020 is about to end. And we don’t have Devilman Crybaby Season 2.
“What’s the reason?“
Well, with this post, I’ll try to find out the reasons.
Let’s get started:
Will There be Devilman Crybaby Season 2?
I’ve been asking the same question for an eternity.
From Reddit to anime forums, I’ve asked everywhere.
There’s no definitive answer.
However, in my quest to finding the right answer, I’ve figured out a valid reason.
A reason why there will be no Devilman Crybaby Season 2.
Why There’ll Be No Devilman Crybaby Season 2
If you’ve watched the Devilman Crybaby Season 1, you would probably know.
There’s no right way to continue the storyline of Ryo & Akira.
Yeah! The makers can continue the storyline with the remaining characters,
But that wouldn’t feel right.
Let me know your thoughts on this via the comments section given at the end of this post.
So, as for the Devilman Crybaby getting renewed for 2nd season looks pretty slim.
Btw, that’s not the only reason.
Devilman Crybaby Season 1 is full of horrific and sex-driven content.
Maybe that’s why Netflix doesn’t want to go back to that road.
If Devilman Crybaby isn’t happening, what’s next.
“What’s next for the fans who loved the anime show?“
Well, there’s not one but two alternatives –
- Devil Lady.
- Violence Jack.
These are the 2 sequels of the Devilman Crybaby anime series. Let’s get to know both of them one-by-one.
Devilman Lady is a sequel to the Netflix blockbuster anime show Devilman Crybaby. Initially, it was serialized as a manga in the magazine Weekly Morning.
And then it was adapted by the TMS Entertainment in 1998-98 for an anime series with 36 episodes.
As for the story, Devilman Lady anime follows a supermodel with the name Jun Fudo.
But that’s all a front.
She harbors a deep secret.
A secret that’s a next step in the evolution of mankind. Initially, even she didn’t know about it.
“So, what’s the big secret?”
Well, she shares the same blood as beast-like superhumans.
Superhumans who always find fun in terrorizing the city. However, Jun is not like the rest.
Somehow, she has held onto her humane side. Once you watch the first 2-3 episodes, you’ll realize it.
Later, Lan Asuka, a mysterious member of a secret government organization, recruits Jun Fundo.
At this secret government organization, her main target is to control or eliminate the mischievous superhumans.
“So, will Jun eradicate her own kind? “
“Or in the process, she’ll lose her sanity?”
Well, to find answers to these questions you need to watch the Devilman Lady anime series.
In terms of story, the Devilman Lady anime series has a beginning that’s similar to the manga series. However, as the story unfolds, you’ll find the Devilman Lady anime series to be completely different.
So, I would recommend you to watch and read the Devilman Lady anime & manga series.
You never know which you may like the most.
Unlike Devilman Lady, Violence jack is more like something that’s going on in a parallel universe with a different timeline.
So, don’t think of it as a sequel.
And as for the story,
It takes place in a world that’s completely destroyed by an earthquake.
After this devastating earthquake, what’s left of humanity is divided into 2 categories – the Strong & the Weak.
Violence Jack was found under the demolished stones along with the inhabitants of his city.
The remaining weak residents asked him for his help.
Help in destroying the strong groups commanded by rapists & killers.
In terms of personality, Jack resonates with the personality of a ruthless & evil character. But end up helping the weak group of people within the trade for nothing.
So, along with the remaining weak residents, will he be able to defeat highly-trained rapists & killers?
“Or all of them will fall prey in front of them?“
Well, you’ll find answers to all these questions once you watch or read, Violence Jack anime or manga at some of these popular online streaming sites.
When Devilman Crybaby Season 1 ended, I felt completely destroyed.
Whenever I remember the soundtrack of the final episode, I feel sad & start getting teary eyes.
Everything about the finale episode is just sad. It’s hard to see two best friends hitting each other.
And when Ryo & Akira’s childhood flashbacks came, it was like getting a punch in the gut.
That’s all for now. The chances of Devilman Crybaby getting a revival is pretty slim.
So, as an alternative will you watch or read its sequel – Devilman Lady & Violence jack? Do let me know your thoughts on this via the comments section given below.
