Amon is eating shit in Hell right now! You can call me...
Sadly, the Manga Entertainment dub I quoted in the title, which is so pathetic it's a Plan 9 From Outer Space style classic, is something I don't possess right now. I actually owned the dubbed VHS tapes, but gave them to a friend once I got the subtitled Darker Image/LA Heroes tapes, and never figured I'd want them back. The dub is available on the DVD that came out like... 8 years ago, but it was such a shoddy PAL sourced dub-only piece of shit that I never really wanted it to give the rest of my shelf suck syndrome. Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and I really wish I'd bought it when it was clogging up the Right Stuf bargain bin instead of deciding which $25 used copy on Amazon Marketplace sounds the least awful.
At least they're starting at $25 these days. For a while the cheapest any of those fuckhats would go was about twice that.
In the meantime, please accept this dual layer R2 DVD patch, complete with the OST and all three translated issues of the Verotik published Devilman manga, available from your friendly neighborhood Asian DVD Club.
Why? 'Cause it's Halloween this week, guys and ghouls, and despite the fact that crushing poverty will prevent me from going to the movies this Hallows Eve, I won't let that get me so down that we can't all snuggle up with our loved ones and/or hard cider and watch Go Nagai's masterpiece brought to life on this most holy of holies.
That's two Go Nagai trilogies down... just one more to go.
