The source material has completed one more story arc which provides probably 6 episodes worth of material (which by the way would be some of the most ****ing jaw dropping and gut wrenching material you could possibly imagine (like **** has not even begun to get real yet)), but not enough for a season 2, maybe an OVA though. The artist has a brisk pace of one new chapter every 1 to 6 months (it's technically monthly, but the schedule is "when it's done", putting it in the same league as Berserk), it's looking like we are
close to a new release (interestingly when ever he works he live streams on pixiv apparently), maybe by the end of the week, but at the current rate of production it'll probably be another year or two to finish off the current arc and for enough material for 12 more episodes. but it takes a year or so for productions like this to get off the ground anyway, so I wouldn't get too upset about it. My gut says two years, or one year if they do a two hour OVA (which I could totally see) On the pluss side the Manga is getting an official release in North America right about now, so you can start buying that if you would like.
In other news, just watched the Netflix funded Devilman
. holy ****! what a beautiful disaster! It's just a hyperviolent and hypersexualized super splatery orgy of a tribute to (the) older anime. Pretty good adaption if you can appreciate/don't mind uttering phrases to yourself like "oh now we're in a club... oh, tits... oh, drugs... oh, that's a lot
of blood" or "did... he just... literally rape that demon to death?" has nice art direction and the soundtrack
is ****ing retro wave as ****
. Kinda brought back some of those old Evangelion feels. If you're in the mood for a "What the **** did I just watch?" ****ed up anime that is borderline porn but making callbacks to shonen tropes I give it a recommendation. Note this is the definition of NOT a normie friendly anime.
