Manga adaptation of Dante Alighieri's classic work The Divine Comedy.
The great demon Dante, exploiting the weakness of a boy exposed to his demoniac influence in the dreams, is awakened from a thousand years sleep. The will of this being, a survivor of an ancient and forgotten civilization, is to wipe out the whole human race.

In the meanwhile the satanist will fight against the hierarchy of the church to obtain a justice which is, as it's easy to guess, that of the demon Maou. This series didn't have an ending until it's remake in 2002. Nagai took many ideas from Maou Dante into Devilman. (Source: MU)
