Satanikus ENMA Kerberos (Satanikus ENMA ケルベロス Satanikus ENMA Keruberosu) or Satanikus ENMA Κέρβερος is a direct sequel to the Demon Prince Enma, with no relation to the OVA. Its serialization started in June 26, 2007 in the number of August 2007 of Kodansha's Magazine Z.[2] While Demon Prince Emma is an adult horror-action manga, Satanikus ENMA Kerberos takes a less serious tone and becomes slightly more lighthearted. The focus of the series is the quest to revive Enma[3]

Helen McCarthy in 500 Essential Anime Movies says the violence is "extreme", but "it's stylishly designed and animated". She praises the soundtrack and humor, which is "well integrated in the characters".[4]
