We were delighted to guest on Warui Deshou with our friends TheSubtleDoctor and Shadon about Devilman Crybaby! This is a more free-form discussion with lots of laughs, but together we hit some moments of real discovery and depth. Discussions include the running metaphor, what the ending means, the show’s depiction of Satan, LGBTQ+ representation, the nature of the show’s violence, character acting, who is best boy, the show as cautionary tale, dope music, Donald Trump’s cameo, and a whole lot more.
It was a blast to record, so it ended up quite long, but see the timestamp outline for a guide and the link to the original shownotes here.
