Devilman Crybaby Ending Explained - Spoiler Alert

Ending Explained - Devilman Crybaby


Beware, spoilers ahead - let's look at Netflix's (watch here) Devilman Crybaby's ending explained. Some hated the ending (see Reddit comments), and you can imagine why, because in the end humanity dies. Yes, everyone dies. Disappointing especially when the whole movie sets up a hero (the boy, Akira) to merge with one of the demons attacking the planet in order to stop the take over. But, through the whole movie, we only see how flawed humanity is, and in the end, it's over for the people of Earth. The Earth is destroyed. That is how it ends. Post-credits shows a planet, but it is not the Earth but another "moon" created from the debris of the destroyed Earth, which may foretell yet another cycle of the same, after everything cools and spawns life again.

Moral of the story? A single man cannot change fate. Humans as a species are too selfish, and are doomed?

About Devilman Crybaby

 The new January 5th, 2018, ten part Netflix anime series, titled Devilman Crybaby (Masaaka Yuasa, director / Ichiro Okouchiis, writer - based on mangaka Go Nagai's 1970s classic manga comic story, which starts with  The Classic Collection Vol. 1) is a graphic miracle of epic proportions, one this Forbes article describes as a neck-snapping adult with anime extreme visuals.

Plot Summary

Ryo Asuka tells his best friend Akira Fudo that humans are about to lose the Earth to a pernicious species of demons (it's like Dormammu for anime), and that one way to counter their attack is for Akira to merge with one of these demons. So, Akiri does merge with the demon named Amon and becomes Devilman, a boy with a human soul and demon powers like being able to look demonish with his new horns and wings. Devilman also exposes some of the deeper, darker elements of humanity with its story, in much the same way Deathnote, a 2017 anime thriller did.

  1. I really hope the devilman and those who fought for the survival of humanity and such, went to heaven. I know it might be unlikely, but they did fight against the evil and tried to do what is right, hearts of humans. I'm sure god would take that into consideration. It wasn't there ending I wanted, but it is still an absolutely fantasic story and knows exactly how to make you bond and receive the emotions. Even though the first few episodes were quiet odd.

  2. If the producers were to make a season 2 it might involve akira going to heaven or something, and Satan finds out or whatever. But I doubt season two will come (as much as I want it to) because this was one of the best anime I've seen in a very long time.

  3. I don' think there will be a second season. The series concluded with everyone dying. There is no point on making a sequel unless it is another re-tale of the cycle.

    The conclusion was very depressing, but also very fitting and focusing on the main theme of the series: who is the true evil, humanity or the devils? From the start we see humans that are as bad or even worse than the devils.

    Akira tries his best to save everyone he cares for, only to see them slowly taken away from him, initially by devils, and then by humanity itself. The way they depicted Miki's death in this version hit me really hard, and kept me awake and dreaming about it for days.

    The atmosphere they built with the characters, the symbolisms with the baton pass, and all the themes makes this, for me, the best version of Devilman yet. Heck, even the opening is filled with symbolisms and pretty much tells the plot of the ENTIRE series.

  4. i 100% doubt that there will be a season 2 because that was the end of the manga. it stops there. if this is meant to be an accurate retelling of the manga, then i bet they'll stop now.

  5. I normally don't comment on this type of thing, but after watching all of this I was just happy it was over. The animation was cool, but the lackluster fights and flat character progression mixed with the over indulgence of nude scenes of (underage) girls was something I couldn't look past. This gets a 1/10 from me, it could have been so much more.

Netflix's "The Open House" Movie - Ending Explained, Spoiler Alert

"The Open House" Ending Explained, Spoilers Netflix recently released the new horror movie, "The Open House", to horrible reviews. The first, big question (spoiler alert) is who was the killer? This movie does not give us the satisfaction of knowing! It gives us no answers, and all those scary mysteries Netlfix promises in the film details, unexplained! And, everybody dies. There was no reason for anyone to watch and kill them, just a bunch of random scare tactics by the directors, and a big let down. How about that for a crappy flick to waste a Friday night on. 
Our Review  - Zero Stars! (with a nod to the semi OK acting by decent cast)
 Lots of red herrings, build ups for no reason, bad plot (could have been summed up in 10 minutes), lots of things happening but no explanation, and everybody dies with no answer to who the killer is nor the motive. No there was no ghosts to explain the weird stuff that happens (which would have been better than the meaningless dr…

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained - Comment with your own theory - Spoiler Alert! Infinity Chamber (trailer here) was criticized by the LA Times for going on, and on and on, but what
is most intriguing is the ending. After nodding off through the whole film, the ending pulls things back in sharp focus by making you wonder what happened. After searching the internet, there are no official explanations for what happened, only some theories on Reddit, some of which make total sense. 
Ending: unfortunately, Frank Lerner did not make it out, whether out is the infinity chamber we saw throughout the movie, or wherever (in an interrogation to find the flashdrive, the hospital, etc.), Frank is still in there, and making peace with that by giving up the struggle and enjoying his time with his memory of something better.
