Devilman Lady Complete

It's finally here - the conclusion to Go Nagai's Devilman Lady! Thanks to the tireless efforts of OtherSideofSky and Wright, Go Nagai's epic sequel to Devilman is fully available in English. I'd like to give a big thanks to Cidsa's Scanlations and SaHa for scanlating volume 1, and Neptise Scans for translating volumes 2 and 3. OtherSideofSky, who typeset and translated this release, wasted no time in beginning translations for Getter Robo Arc. It seems Getter Robo Saga is also coming to a close in the near future!

Now, I'd like to talk about what's in store for Dynamic Pro Scanlations. We've got a couple of upcoming projects in addition to Getter Robo Arc. These projects include Shin Mazinger Zero, Go Nagai's remake of Maoh Dante, Shin Violence Jack and a few others. Not to mention, we'll continuing to work on our other projects.

As you've no doubt noticed, the release frequency for Dynamic Pro Scanlations has increased quite dramatically since mid-2011. More than ever, we're working closely with groups like HappyScans! and Hokuto no Gun. Moreover, OtherSideofSky scanlates Dynamic Pro titles and sometimes we help each other out on them. This is largely thanks to Wright's ability to help lead all of these projects and get staff on them, and he's spent quite a bit of money recently to fund projects like Violence Jack, Shin Mazinger Zero, Maoh Dante, God Mazinger, Giant Robo by Yokoyama, Cobra by Terasawa and a couple others. He's had to pay translator fees in addition to any RAWs we've had to purchase, so the sum is pretty high.

Anyway, this long-winded explanation was basically to lead up to the fact that I've switched our old Paypal button to link to HappyScans!'s account. If you can, please donate to Wright to show that you appreciate his tremendous monetary sacrifice. And remember, if a lot of people donate just a small amount, it'll quickly build up to something substantial. $5 or $2 dollars is a monumental help to our cause.

Anyhow, thank you all for your continued support. Look forward to reading more great Dynamic Pro and other oldschool manga!

  2. I have a few final thoughts.

    Can Go Nagai write a healthy lesbian relationship? A lesbian relationship that isn't based on rape, hermaphroditism and where one of them doesn't get murdered to bury the gays?



    Is this the end of the Devil____ saga?

    I know that Violence Jack is what happens after Devilmans events, now that Lucifer and Akira are fighting side by side they can finally take god so is this the real ending? Is there something that comes after this?




    Finally does anyone else think that the "devilkids" introduced in one of the earlier volumes was something that they got rid of because they wanted to wrap the story up before getting cancelled?

    1. Finally! After all these years Devilman Lady is finally entirely in English! Thank you very much for all your hard work!

      This isn't the end of the Devilman saga. After this comes Shin Violence Jack, which Dynamic Pro Scanlations is also gonna scan (Yay!). That series sees the return of Miki Makimura. And then of course there is the ongoing translating of Violence Jack, which is greatly appreaciated.

      As to the theory that Violence Jack and Devilman Lady are alternate sequels, that is a definite possibility. However, what I think is also just as plausible is that they do follow each other, it's just that the people in Devilman Lady (including Akira and Satan) have no memories about the events of Violence Jack. As was confirmed in Devilman Lady, the events of Devilman took place in the early 1970s, whereas Devilman Lady took place in the early 2000s (Akira was unfamiliar with the internet). Most likely Violence Jack also took place in the early 1970s in the Devil-verse before the events were erased and the universe rebooted by God into Devilman Lady, accompanied by a 30-year-or-so timeskip. Until we get confirmation from Word of God (aka Go Nagai) any guess is as good as another.

  5. Thank you sure the ending borders a bit on ridiculous and lucifer and akiras chances of winning are actually pretty small well slim to zero if god steps in but wouldn't hurt to try if they fail big reset by god start all over again. Geez when are we human gonna get a break good thing the devillady gives that hope and Michael that asshole you know you would have solved this problem if you brought some angels to fight but no.

    My fic light bulb has been relit thanks to you guys muchas gracias.

  6. Hey there!
    Just wanna say that I appreciate what you guys are doing, and have done so far!
    Keep up the good work, Dynamic Pro Scanlation team!

  7. Wow...this was a great. Honestly I love Go Nagai's work but I think I know the time line of the Devilman/Violence Jack stories better now. After Devilman (1972) the story splits into two alternate takes on the sequels (I think):

    One universe takes us to where Devilman left off and Satan is punished for his actions by being tortured by the Slum King and Akira is reborn as Violence Jack in three forms.

    The other one is Devilman Lady who is the reincarnation of Satan (Jun) by being a twin to Asuka. God must have restarted the Earth back to its original state but had Micheal overlooking it so as Satan cannot be reborn and try to rebel again.

    I'm soooooooooo looking forward to the rest of the Scans you guys have coming you really are awesome, but it would be great if someone could elaborate the page for me. What happens after Satan and Akira team up and do they beat god? I mean they feared the titans right, so why isn't it concluded with Satan's victory? Wish I couls speak Japaneses and ask Nagai himself :(

    1. They skipped the human grown devilkid clones too

      They also skipped the mecha devilmen

      They skipped a LOT of stuff

      I guess Go decided to try to wrap it up quickly.

  8. Yay the last volume is here and my mind is still trying to compute all that happened within those last 2 chapters. "Wait what?! But how?! This doesn't- Huh?! Zuh?! *overload. brain shuts down*" Yeah that's pretty much what happened XD. Well, good to see Silene [nice new look and the body choice is surprisingly poetic] and Kaimu again [though there went the Hayami bloodline XD]. The end was kinda disappointing though [just as we were about to get to the epic stuff] still this was an enjoyable read nonetheless [this from someone who wasn't very interested in the Devilverse until I read Devilman and wanted to learn more] so thank you so much for all the hard work you all put into this n_n.

    I can't wait for Getter Robo Arc *squee* <3. Already reading Violence Jack from you guys, it will be nice to have a better translation of Shin Mazinger Zero and I'm sure Giant Robo and God Mazinger will be interesting reads too X3.

  9. Hahaha oh my god those final chapters... I don't...
    And even more, Akira gets shafted AGAIN. Oh wow. Hahahaha.
    Those last chapters were so convoluted and contrived that I can't even believe...
    And so the world ends AGAIN, and YVYH begins everything anew.

    That is some crazy stuff.
    Humans get shafted EVERY TIME.
    I'll definitely be donating to those new projects.

    1. Yeah shafted everytime alright even when humans turn to demon like monsters its still not enough (most if not all evolved humans were possessed by demons at the end) also true on akira i mean geez he decides to just fight with lucifer i thought for sure he would at least give him a lecture

      Delete
    2. It's like humans have no purpose in the world to begin with, in the end they end up being obliterated in the war between hell and heaven anyway, between demons and angels, and it's really crappy. It's not like in Megami Tensei games, where humans at least have a CHANCE through the main character. They really end up just... being tools, or dead.

      And Akira just jumping to Lucifer's side, holy crap that was... I really believed the first thing Devilman would do was deck Lucifer, especially after all that's gone on. Seriously?

      Delete
    3. Yes it was none sensical and ridiculous akira would deck Lucifer for again leading humanity to death not once but twice. As for Shin Megami Tensei humans please humans have pretty big role some become saviors others become monsters worse than anything Go Nagai can cook up. Monster example Chiaki of Shin megami tensei nocture she has survival of the fittest view of the world something amon of devilman would love the second she gained power its the second she went insane

  10. Part of me believes the ending was supposed to be more hopeful like the animes but something made go nagai change his mind. why I say this well the controlled devilmen in the institute in the manga they showed that once and never mentioned it again something changed. Oh well the hopeful ending is in the anime.

    Replies
    1. I'm sure the producers of the anime gave it a more hopeful ending because Go Nagai's visions are just a tad bit too dark for on TV airings... people want to see happy endings.

    2. true reason why mazinger sold more than any devilman series something master Go did not like but oh well.

      Delete
  11. One of the "devilkids" in the institute, called "David Bird" is actually the main character of a 2-volume manga entitled "The Bird", that Nagai did before Devilman Lady if I'm not mistaken. It's pretty hard to find pictures of it on the Net, since the cover to volume 1 is just a black cover, and the book is pretty obscure. I think it used to be published in Weekly Morning, but I'm not even positively sure of that.

    1. Cool, didn't know it was a cameo. Nice find.

  12. Ah, sorry about my last post, I messed up. "The Bird" was not published in Weekly Morning but in Young Jump. I managed to find a cover :

  14. Though I would just extend the request for anyone to donate...in raws and translation fees, I've wracked up about 4-500 dollars all in all, so every little bit goes a way to paying for what's already been done and for more in the future

  15. >Giant Robo
    For clarification purposes, by Giant Robo do you mean the Mitsuteru Yokoyama manga or the Yasuhiro Imagawa manga?

  16. >Cobra by Terasawa
