Been waiting for this for a long time! Well, not that I knew this was coming, but I've been waiting for somebody to take a chance on releasing this in English (again) for... well, ever since I saw that Dynamic Pro Devilman release back in the day. This is probably the best devil-related news possible.

Seconded.

Was there ever a manga version drawn in the style of the TV series? I know Yamato had a couple of different adaptions so I would think Devilman might get the same treatment (because 'goat leg' Devilman is more scary than 'Prowres' TV Devilman, see).

I'm not sure about that. I know there's the more modern Devilman G manga, and several other similar moder spinoffs, but they're more horror style iirc. It wouldn't surprise me if there where others, tho. It's a popular enough franchise.

The preorder for the classic Devilman vol 1 is up on Amazon now! Coming in March, hardcover with 680 pages! Impressive! http://amzn.to/2v67Mjj
