Aw snap: Cyborg 009 and Devilman collide in a new OVA

Sounds like a match made in heaven

Oh wow, now this is what I call an unexpected turn of events. It turns out that the new Cyborg 009 anime is a three-episode crossover OVA with Devilman.

Actas (Kotesushin Jeeg and MazinKaiser SKL's Animation Production) and Bee Media (Mazinger Edition Z: The Impact's Animation Production and Mazinkaiser's Production) are handling Cyborg 009 vs Devilman's production, so we can expect to see some great callbacks to Shotaro Ishinomori and Go Nagai's previous works. In regards to the anime's premiere date, the OVA hits Japan in October as a limited theatrical showing that'll run for two weeks. Then the title heads to Blu-ray on Nov. 11 as a complete set, with the individual volumes hitting stores on Nov. 11, Dec. 9, and Jan. 6.

If there's one thing that connects the two properties, it's that Go Nagai used to draw backgrounds for Shotaro Ishinomori as his assistant. Since I'm a big fan of their works, I'm interested in seeing how the nine cyborgs' encounter with Akira/Devilman will turn out. As we wait for more news about the anime, you can take a look at the project's poster in the gallery below.

To those of you who enjoy Ishinomori and Go Nagai's works, are you looking forward to watching Cyborg 009 vs Devilman?
