The latest anime adaptation of Go Nagai’s Devilman manga has gained global attention and notoriety with the release of Masaaki Yuasa’s DEVILMAN crybaby on Netflix. Along with building an international audience, DEVILMAN crybaby has cultivated a local fan base and presence in Tokyo with DEVILMAN crybaby SABBATH SHIBUYA, 「DEVILMAN NIGHT kensuke ushio LIVE @WOMB」and now the 『DEVILMAN crybaby meets BEAMS JAPAN – SABBATH SHINJUKU –』, a collaboration pop-up store and exhibit.
From July 18 to 31, 2018, fans can purchase limited edition clothes and goods, and view a small exhibit on the 4th floor of BEAMS JAPAN in Shinjuku. Ayumi Kurashima, character designer for DEVILMAN crybaby, created new visuals featuring Akira and Ryo wearing the clothes from this collab.
