BONUS EPISODE 666: Crybaby

On January 6, 2018 Devilman Crybaby grabbed the anime world by the collar and bit its head off. Now, a month later, the effusive duo of Subs and Shadon pour their hearts out for Masaki Yuasa’s adaptation of go Nagai’s iconic 70s manga.

But, because Warui Deshou is a bad podcast, they knew they couldn’t perform a task like this alone, so they summoned Danny and K, the delightful and insightful hosts of Anime Is Lit to create a pod crossover the likes of which neither god nor devil hath known!

Leaving nary a stone unturned, the group talks about everything they can think of, including: the running metaphor, what the ending means, the show’s depiction of Satan, LGBTQ+ representation, the nature of the show’s violence, character acting, who is best boy, the show as cautionary tale, dope music, Donald Trump’s cameo, and a whole lot more.

This is a long podcast that covers a lot of topics, so please use the timecodes below to jump around in case, say, you already know all about Go Nagai or haven’t seen Crybaby and don’t want to be spoiled.
