Devilman Wiki

Massami Izumi (泉まさみ Izumi Massami?) is a supporting character in the 'Devilman' manga series, making several short appearances in the final part of the story. Fused with the canine demon Puffurle, Massami served as an aide to Akira Fudo during the final days of the dying world.


Massami was a thin and young woman. She has fair skin, brown colored eyes and white short hair. In her Devilman form she had somewhat canine characteristics, growing a thin layer of fur across her body and a pair of lopped ears, her feet turn into dog-like paws.


Massami had a caring personality, she worked closely with Akira who seemed to confide in her on frequent occasion.


As Devilman Puffurle, she had a good amount of agility, sharp claws and a toothy maw. She also had some degree of psychic ability, though quite how strong is never specified.


Massami is first seen among a circle of devilmen headed by Akira Fudo in his underground hideout. During which Massami and the other devilmen used their psychic abilities to summon others join them on their cause. Suddenly Dosu-Roku comes running in and informs them of a potential recruit and about the Center of Biological Studies which had been abducting and violently experimenting upon devilman and demon alike. After Dosu-Roku leaves, Massami and the others again attempt to contact others, but are suddenly mocked by a disembodied laughter which reveals itself as several Monks, who appear before Akira and the other Devilmen, they promise to use their psychic powers to assist Fudo on his journey.

Later after Ryo had confirmed its betrayal to Akira and revealed itself to be Satan he departs he walks to Massami and he asks her about Satan being as beautiful as an Angel. She tells him about how Satan was an angel who had dared to defy God and was banished from Heaven to earth. She jokes saying that maybe he has seen Satan, he flatly replies saying he had, she turns to ask, but decides against it.

After Akira and the Corps had destroyed the Anti-Demon Corps HQ and he had found the bloodied corpses of his adoptive parents, he sits and thinks about both humanity and the demons. Massami comes and finds him in the basement, she asks what he was thinking and he replies, he says that he has realized that the humans are no longer worth fighting for as they became even worse than the Demons and that he had no one left to fight for, but he then realizes that he still had one person to fight for, Miki. He rushes home only to see a horrific sight.

The Puffurle design from 'Devilman: The List'


  • Massami's name comes from the manga novelisation by Yasutaka Nagai.
  • Similarly, her demon/Devilman form, Puffurle, was first named in the 'Demon Bible'. A side book that details the various devils from the early manga series.
  • A fourth season of Fewture Models figures was supposedly going to feature a Puffurle figure (Others being Kaim, Texsch, bondage Sirene and a Devilman variant), with a slightly punk-like edge to the design. However the toyline was cancelled before release. Series designer Yasushi Nirasawa did release a planned design for her shortly after in his book 'Devilman: The List', which also featured ideas for other unmade figures such as Illuge, Odom and others.
  • A figure was released in the Marmit line, released in a two-pack with Kensaku Makimura. A chess piece was also made for the chess set.
