An origin story for Amon & Siren that at first seems to partly contradict the one from the Amon manga, but takes place before it. Since there is quite a few stories in the Devilman franchise where characters die & are reborn, it works. We learn in other mangas that Akira is partly his own father & Siren is her own mother, so it's not too much of a stretch to buy them both as Knights of God before being fuded with demons, & now the claims that Siren & Amon used to be a couple make more sense. Interestingly enough, Satan started out as a man before beoming a hermaphrodite by being merged with Yuria who latter shows up in Devilman Lady as Asuka Ran.

One contradiction is with Siren's origin. Sirens were an entire species of demon. The first Siren loved Satan & shared a mother with her many sisters. She either had an identical daughter with the same name or literally gave birth to herself before dying. This second Siren seems to be the one who grew up with a crush on Amon.

A second contradiction is with Amon's origin. In Amon, Satan claimed that the human Amon fused with was a part of Satan that God tore lose, suggesting that Akira was the same. This one shows Amon as a human-like knight of God who looks like Akira & was never part of Satan.

It's definitely Nagai's art, so Dynamic Pro must be the colorist. It seems to be done in colored pencils & looks really fantastic.

Contrary to the "axed" tag someone added, this was clearly a oneshot story, specifically a full color magazine special
