Since the beginning of time bloodthirsty demons have devoured the weak and innocent, but for centuries they have been preserved in ice deep beneath the surface of the Earth where they can harm no man. Now, in the present, the demons have begun to awaken, and only one with a virtuous heart can stop them and save mankind. For young Akira, this means merging with a fierce demon and becoming Devilman, the creature who must destroy all demons in its path. With only his ally and friend Ryo to stand beside him, can Akira take on his fate and save the world?
