Nagai launched the original Devilman manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 1972. The collected volumes of the manga have more than 10 million copies in print. A television anime adaptation of the manga aired simultaneously in 1972.
The anime and manga series have spawned more than a dozen different spinoffs and remakes since 1972, including manga, OVAs, and a 2004 live-action film.
Discotek Media released the original 39-episode television anime series last year.
