Cyborg 009 is a classic science fiction anime created by the late mangaka, Shotaro Ishinomori back in 1964, while Devilman is a classic fantasy anime created by the legendary mangaka, Go Nagai back in 1972. Now, these two classics, which have certainly paved the way for other series, and will be taking on each other in a brand new anime movie called Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman.
With the tagline “Who will survive…?”, the anime movie is slated to premiere this October 2015 for a limited time of two weeks. The story will follow the meeting between Cyborg 009 main character, Joe Shimamura and Devilman main character, Akira Fudou, and as the title and the tagline suggests, it won’t be a peaceful one.
Here are some new screenshots from the upcoming anime crossover movie:
Both Cyborg 009 and Devilman are considered masterpieces in Japan and have inspired countless mangakas, animators, illustrators, and anime fans not only in Japan, but the entire planet, so it would be very interesting to see two larger than life characters like Joe and Akira take on each other with everything they’ve got.
