In 1972, manga creator Go Nagai was approached by a Japanese TV network about the possibility of a series based on one of his comics. Nagai suggested that a new series of his, 'Devilman' might be just what they were looking for. This marked the beginning of a 38-episode run that was not only a success, but also set an indelible stamp on Japanese horror for some time to come. Twenty-five years later, in 1997, Go Nagai's dark, twisted, and polymorphously perverse images were reborn in a different guise. This time as 'Devilwoman.'

Jun Fudou is a successful fashion model, lushly attractive and in demand. Her best friend is young Kazumi Takiura, another model who, for a younger generation. Into this happy-go-lucky life-style intrudes Lan Asuka a member of the mysterious 'human alliance.' Asuka tricks Jun into a confrontation with a demonic creature, and the model discovers that she also has demonic powers, and perhaps, relishes the killing. At least until she returns to human form. As the episodes progress, Asuka explains that Jun is 'neotenic' - progressing toward devil-hood, but still retaining her human soul.

From this point on the story continues to develop unexpected complexities. At first a 'use a monster to skill monsters' story it quickly becomes clear that Jun is more than a little horrified by her own transformation. Her encounters with Jason Bates, who shares her heritage makes it ever clearer that she cannot leave her humanity behind any more than Jun can now relinquish the power of her new form. And Asuka's cold use of Jun's powers make it clear that what appears to be human agendas are no better than the demonic agendas that oppose them.

I love the Devil Lady! I started out watching Devil Man and eventually moved on to Devil Lady. It starts out with the story over a model who becomes the devil lady. You see her transformation from quite reserved woman to the demon woman as the series progresses. I paid around $30 bucks for each DVD in the 6 DVD. I wish that I would have known that the price was going to be so cheap for the whole series. I say go for it, you have nothing to lose. This is a good story, it will captivate you and have you wondering what is going to happen next!

In modern day Tokyo, a beautiful but fragile young supermodel, Jun Fudou, finds her ordinary life turned upside-down when she is visited by Asuka Lan, a shady and mysterious woman with a secret agenda of her own. Soon Jun discovers that she can, when provoked, transform into a demonic giant, hence the title of the series. Under Asuka's command, Jun is forced to track down monsters--some of who may actually be her close colleagues in disguise. All the while, Jun's relationship with her best friend Kazumi begins to slide.

Created by Go Nagai, this dark, gothic-horror 26-episode series is most definitely not for young children. In addition to having a complex, sometimes nail-biting plot, THE DEVIL LADY also has its lion's share of gory violence and nudity. The battle sequences between the devilish Jun and the monsters are as bloody as you'd expect, and there are also scenes where several characters are nude. Still some other episodes feature somewhat sexual situations; for example, at one point, Jun is tied to a bed while a character (changed into a demonic cat), draws her claw against Jun's chest and slurps blood from the wound. Later, another character--Jason Bates--who, like our heroine, has the ability to transform into a devil beast, attempts to rape Jun.

To THE DEVIL LADY's credit, however, the show handles the above in a supernatural manner, so it's not so disturbing. And while some may bemoan that the production values are on par with an old-school Anime--uneven cel count, and somewhat limited backgrounds, in many ways it makes it easier to stomach a show like this.

However, there were two things that ultimately made THE DEVIL LADY for me. The first is its ominous musical score, provided by Toshiyuki Watanabe.

Jun Fudou, a pretty but inconspicuous and reserved young woman working as a model in Tokyo, one day is torn out of her well-ordered life: a mysterious, ruthless woman named Lan Asuka tells her that mankind is being haunted by genetically mutated monsters and that only she, Jun, has the power to fight against them. As she is being attacked by one of these monsters, the unbelievable happens: Jun turns into the Devil Lady (a kind of primordial woman or goddess) a wild, demoniacal woman with formidable powers who will in future give a hard time to the attacking fiends.

What seems like a typical Japanese fight and monster story turns out to be, if you look at it closer, a study about human subconsciousness: the monsters are nothing but humans who do not manage to cope with their inner drives, instincts, secret wishes and obsessions, which, if the individual is under a great deal of stress, break out and turn them into dangerous beasts. Jun's nature is very similar to the monsters', but she turns into the Devil Lady only in order to defend herself and others, which explains why in this form she still wears human traits and does not forego the capacity to be compassionate. Although this exasperates Lan Asuka and the Human Alliance which she belongs to and who understands herself as an institution to save mankind, Jun refuses tenaciously to give up her humanness and to simply butcher off the monsters; instead, she still sees the human being in them and gives them the chance to go back to their humanness, as she, too, after every fight becomes Jun Fudou again and takes up her everyday life.
