A little over a week before it’s release, Netflix Japan has posted a 30- second teaser for the upcoming anime DEVILMAN Crybaby. The Netflix original, a part of the company’s promise to release 13 new anime, will release worldwide on January 5.

Netflix describes Devilman Crybaby‘s story as :

The protagonist Akira Fudo learns from his best friend, Ryo Asuka, that an ancient race of demons has returned to take back the world from humans. Ryo tells Akira that the only way to defeat the demons is to incorporate their supernatural powers, and suggests that he unite with a demon himself. Akira succeeds in transforming into Devilman, who possesses both the powers of a demon and the soul of a human. The battle of Devilman and Akira Fudo begins.

Devilman Crybaby is backed by a promising crew, well-known for capturing the hearts of anime fans. The series is being directed by Science SARU studio, and Masaaki Yuasa who brought us the sleeper-hit Ping Pong the Animation. Taking charge of the script is Ichiro Okouchi, the creator of highly acclaimed Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
