Synopsis
Volume 1: THE BIRTH. Normal life in modern day Tokyo is unexpectedly disrupted for a young high school kid called Akira. First his parents go missing, then his pet rabbit is viciously slaughtered and finally his best friend, Ryo Asuka, reveals a terrifying secret - something that guarantees that Akira's life can never be the same again. Ryo's dead archaeologist father left him a dark and sinister legacy, knowledge of which may only condemn Ryo in the samae way it condemned his father - to an eternal sentence of suffering and torment. However, Ryo understands that his legacy also has the power to salvage the human race from torturous damnation at the hands of demons. But whoever kills a demon must become a demon - and only one who is pure of heart can possess the body of a demon ... only one like Akira! Volume 2: DEMON BIRD. Demons, once trapped in the glacial ice of the Earth, have been unleashed on mankind after centuries of non-intervention. Only two men have the ability to stop them, the cool-headed Ryo and the fearless Akira who, as Devilman, possesses the body and strength of a demon but with the heart and soul of a human. In DEMON BIRD, Akira is confronted by more deadly horror as obscene and twisted creatures struggle to take control of the world. Miki, his girlfriend, is brutally attacked by the fiendish water-demon Gelmar whilst Devilman takes on Jinmen, who carries the tortured souls of his victims embedded in his gruesome shell. But the combinantion of human and demon makes Akira a formidable force ... until he meets the vicious talons of Siren, the invincible Demon Bird!
