Overview

Welcome to the 4th weekly article for Beelzebub! Hello fans and newcomers, I'm your host, Takashichea, and I'm proud to say that this episode has a nice volleyball finale. Be prepared for some flashy volleyball moves, action packed, and some hysterical moments in this episode.

Plot

It has come down to this! The anticipated volleyball match between the Ishiyama High students and the Six Holy Knights has begun! With their status as students and imminent expulsion hanging in the balance, Oga and friends know that they must win this match at all costs. However, the Six Holy Knights will not go down without putting up one hell of a match first.

Can the team from Ishiyama High pull off the upset? Or will they be crushed by their rivals and be expelled? And just who is the mysterious person from Oga's shrouded past that arrives at the festival?

By ShadowKnight508 whose enthusiasm knows no bound. I couldn't come up with a better teaser than this. Plus, I'm tired from writing forum threads for the other projects.

Verdict

Good

  • After a timeout, I love the troll faces that Oga, lil' Beel, and the other delinquents make when they have their dirty tactics planned.
  • Aoi's misunderstanding Hilda is hysterical. You can say Aoi's mind is in the cloud. There were Aoi and Oga moments at the end.
  • Subtle Scene: When the students talk smack about Ishiyama, Azusa restrains Kazuya from the beating the crap out of these guys. I love this scene.
  • These shots are nice and better than the DBZ death ball scene.

Bad

Kaname's Death Ball!

  • The DBZ death ball scene is a bit too much. No offense to the DBZ fans. However, it could be a parody to the popular franchise. It depends on your opinions.
  • In the manga, Oga kicks the ball is a much better scene than the anime version where Toujou dribbles the ball to pass to Oga who slam dunk it.

Bizarre

  • Cameo Appearance: Lord En and his maids appear for a brief moment.
  • Miki got bitch slapped by Oga's pass. Why did Miki not hit the ball?

Thanks

I thank you guys for reading this; I thank my team: ShadowKnight508 for prepping the wiki page and adding that teaser plot and Annabanana for the plot summary and the images. Please give them recognition and see their hard work on Beelzebub episode 35. You guys are awesome!

Looks like my guide won't be publish before October 1, but I got a lot of experience from writing these reports. If you guys love a franchise and work hard on it, you should write blogs, reviews, or a guide about it to promote your love and your work.

Awesome work as always, Takashichea. This episode was pretty good overall, and without you pointing out the cameo appearances by Lord En and his wet nurses, I would have never known about it (since apparently they appear in the manga but are not involved in the anime yet).

@ShadowKnight508:

Thanks! I just read Anna's points of interests then read the manga chapter afterwards.

Master En and his three wet nurses make a second appearance as background characters.

Though, she states that Lord En appeared twice so far. I have no idea about where he appeared for the first time.

En and his maids first make an appearance in Episode 26 (at around 15:50), albeit they aren't as close and visible.

@AnnaBanana: Thanks for pointing that out, Anna. I would have never caught that without someone pointing it out first.
