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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dante In Modern Clothes August 4, 2004
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Gothic; A Nice Surprise from Go Nagai April 15, 2006
I was pleasantly surprised with Devil Lady. Though I don't have much of a care for Go Nagai (the only series if ever enjoyed that he made was New Cutey Honey), I do know something about him, and one of the things he's known for his constant fan-service and more humor-based stories. But occasionally he takes a dip into horror, and when he does he does a good job with it. Devil Lady, though, is probably his best, I think, because it sets an atmosphere and never gets away from that. In other words, it stays dark and tense throughout, with characters that have a lot of emotion.

The story in the Devil Lady series follows Jun Fudo, a beautiful fashion model who seems a little bored with life, and more than just a bit depressed. But one night, she is captured and forced to face a monstrosity that nearly kills her. That's when her powers come out, and she changes into the Devil Lady, a super-powered fighting creature with no mercy. Now, her life revolves around a new career, of hunting and killing demons and devils in the night. What follows is episode after episode of confrontations, usually with a lot of emotional or thematic undertones, adding a little bit of depth to what is essentially a blood-and-guts anime.

As for the negatives, though there are few, there was one that caught my attention: dated animation. And the surprising thing is that this is not an old anime. It was made in the late 90s yet it looks as if it came from the early to mid 90s. It seems washed, and at times it's darker than it needs to be, so much so that you'll be adjusting the brightness on your TV just to see what it is that's happening to the Devil Lady. Another thing that bothered me was the goofy Go Nagai trademarks, and the one that really had me saying "huh?
