Devilman Wiki

Little Magic was the first chapter of the manga Devilman Grimoire released in the magazine Champion Red in May 2012.


The chapter starts with an enraged Miki Makimura screaming that she was a witch whilst Akira watches in awe before transforming into Devilman.

Afterwards it then talks about how Solomon got the Ring of Solomon from Archangel Mikal and how he used it to enslave 72 demons and build a temple in Jerusalem.

The scene then reverts with Miki waiting impatiently outside the school gates for her best friend Akira Fudo a shy and meek boy, Miki tells him that he should join a club so he could get stronger but he denies the offer saying he wasn't really up for that, to which Miki calls him ladylike. Akira talks back but Miki says that it was different as she was training to become a witch, causing Akira to groan.

Akira then explains to the reader his relationship with Miki and how since she was young she thought that she was a witch. However when ever they went to play they were mocked or ignored by other kids. 

Afterwards Miki and Akira are approached by Himura, Go and Dosu-Roku who start to flirt with Miki, however she ignores them, when Himura asks why she bluntly says that she hates him. Akira tries to pull her away but Himura grabs her and pins her to a tree. Akira goes over but is blocked by Dosu-Roku and Go. They start taunting him and ask why he was always staying with her, where Akira explains that he was an orphan and was taken in by her family. Miki slips free of Himura's grasp and punches him in the face knocking him over. They flee and Miki notices a strange girl watching them but ignores it and continues running. 

Back at the Makimura home Akira has dinner with the Makimura family where Miki gloats about beating Himura, Tare then complains that Akira should be better than Miki and it was disappointing he wasn't. However Kozo (The father) says that Akira did the right thing staying out of trouble, Akiko (The mother) then talks about all the strange things that had recently been seen.

Meanwhile it goes back to Himura who was being mocked by his fellow gang members about being hit by a girl, when Go suggests that they rape her for real next time Himura looks down in disgust noticed only by Mikiko. Afterwards a strange woman comes past asking if they had seen a girl when they say no Dosu-Roku and Go ask if she wanted sex to which she accepts. However as they have sex she reveals herself to be the demon Aleda and she kills them both. Himura and Mikiko both hear screaming and see Masa running with his girlfriend. They then see Aleda eating the remains of Dosu-Roku and Go and they flee themselves. They then see Masa and his girlfriend carried away by Sirene

The next day Miki and Akira are approached by three girls asking if they had seen Mikiko, they say they hadn't but Miki tells them to come meet her after school, however when they arrive they see she had drawn a pentagram, despite some disbelief the girls stand in the circle where Miki chants some words. Nothing happens for a while but they are approached by five cloaked figures asking if they had seen a girl, they say they hadn't, but one of the girls annoyed at them approaches one of the figures only to be sliced in half, the demon reveals itself as Massack and the other figures reveal themselves as Wagreb, Jurad, Magoad and Doroma

Jurad and Wagreb kill the other two girls and Akira and Miki try to escape only to be blocked by Massack who cuts of Akiras foot, Akira then selflessly blocks Massacks path to Miki giving her the time to escape however terrified she fails to move, She regains her senses and tries to send the demons back by shouting some chants however it fails and Massack grabs Akira, however Miki screams and slams her ring into the ground where she accidentally summons the demon Amon who fuses with Akira and becomes the dominant force. Amon then rips off Massacks arms causing him to scream in pain and slams down on his head killing him, Amon then walks over to the other demons.
