Before life as we know it became the norm on Earth, the planet was populated not just with humans, but with demons. War between the two species eventually reduced the demons to a secret minority that, even now, remains segregated and hidden from human kind. Akira Fudo is a high school guy with an amazingly placid disposition. His friends even chide him for never standing up to mistreatment at school, but Akira is just too good-natured to bother. Akira is pure of heart and this is what makes him the only person on Earth who can become Devilman. After allowing himself to become possessed by a demon, he can now utilize the creature's powers to fight evil. Devilman is among the first popular anime and is considered by many to be the first anime in the now-established genre of high school students becoming super heroes.
