Jun Fudo is a tall beautiful supermodel, who is idolized by many, that graces the cover of magazines and billboards across Japan. While her career is in full swing, she starts to feel an inexplicable emptiness inside her that she doesn’t quite understand at first, for within her lie the genes that hold the next step in the evolution of all mankind. She has the same genetic mutation in her DNA as the beast-like humanoid monsters that terrorize the city. Unlike the rest of them, Jun manages to hold onto her humanity. She is recruited by the sinister Lan Asuka, member of the Human Alliance a secret organization within the government. Jun, as Devil Lady, is forced to exterminate her own kind, as she struggles to hold on to her sanity.

So many things are similar here: Character design; main theme(humans turning into monsters); smash cut zoom musical cues; and close ups on the eyes. Given the fact that both series are the brainchild of Go Nagai, explains the similarities, as well as his expert way of telling so much with a mere close up of the eyes. Spoiler: I found Devil Lady to be better with it's richer story line, but Dante has better plot twists.
Go Nagai’s Devilman Lady manga series differs greatly form the anime. He has a major fixation whit the eyes in both plot and imagery, adding a poetic quality, which is rare for anime. Combine this with Go Nagai’s imagination having a sense of realism. Except for the altered transformations and Devil Beast forms, all the characters have realistic proportions. These 2 factors prove that the Devil Lady series is a rare gem indeed, that is, until you watch it. The dubbed audio (in EN, one out of the 6 languages it was released), is slightly misaligned, poorly scripted, and poorly read for most characters. I’d be remised if I neglected to mention my most hated plot point: the ‘Giga Effect’ much like Sailor Moon, Gurren Lagann, and other animes in which all the main characters need to do to conquer a vastly superior foe to grit their teeth, bare down hard, get angry, and.. poof! new power and strength! It’s a lazy tool of bad writing. Officially, Devil Lady is listed in the genre of Yuri, this is both true and misleading. It’s primarily an emotional component between Jun and other characters, because the moment a kiss is shared, a death soon follows. Now to end this on a high note, the duality of Jun fighting both to protect mankind and the ones she holds dear, while she struggles to hold on to her humanity... is subtle, and sucks you in as you start to really feel for poor Jun. That being said, I’d rate Devil Lady, with violence, brief nudity, and mild language, a 2.6 (out of 10): Not quite worthy of background noise, but it can suck you in.
