Overview

Welcome to the fifth Weekly Beelzebub's article! I'm Takashichea who is a partner to Annabanana and ShadowKnight508 on the Beelzebub project. This episode is pretty interesting since it has a lot of anime and manga differences. You know you should watch the anime and read the manga in any order. Please check our wiki work on episode 37 and the IMAGE GALLERY. I'm here to highlight the episodes without giving out too much info and my team's work.

Plot

To recap: Oga and his team win the volleyball match; Oga defeats Kiriya by burning him and his punks with Zebul Blast.

After the volleyball and the Kiriya event, Oga finds himself and Beelzebub adored by many fans. While Aoi gets asked by her friends about her feelings for Oga, Oga and Toujou pay a visit to Kaname. Suddenly, a new character appears and beats them quick and easy. He is Zenjuro Saotome, the new teacher on the block.

Honey, I'm home! I brought two knocked up boys and a baby.

Who is Zenjuro Saotome and why is he here? What is wrong with Aoi, and how does Kaname know about Oga's demon powers?

New Characters

Zenjuro Saotome
Zenjuro Saotome

Zenjuro Saotome is the new teacher who has graduated from Ishiyama high school. Not much is known about him, and I can't give too much information on what he did in this episodes. All I can say is, "Damn, he's strong!"

Verdict

Beware of spoilers for those who haven't watch yet!

Good

Oga: I'm not going to sing along!
Oga: I'm not going to sing along!
  • Beelzebub is cute when he singing and babbling as Oga goes to school.
  • Aoi has those awkward moments where she blushes. I counted three times.
  • Zenjuro Saotome has an awesome fight with Hilda.
  • Beelzebub finally hits Oga. I sense him becoming rebellious.

Bad

  • Not much unless you have read the manga. There were funny scenes in the manga that the anime did not have. All I can say is that Miki and Oga had some "fun" and the Red Tails girls and Aoi acts differently to Oga in the manga than their anime counterparts. Be sure to check our episode page and read the manga. You'll see a big difference.

Bizarre

Beel: Wake Up, You Deadbeat Father!
Beel: Wake Up, You Deadbeat Father!
  • It's the first time that Beelzebub hits Oga. I love how Oga reacts and how everyone claps.
  • Why was Alaindelon posing for the class?
  • It seems more people know and are aware about demons that just Oga and Furuichi as we watch the episode.

Thanks

Thank you guys for reading this. Please thank Anna and ShadowKnight508 for providing images and working on it. Anna added a lot of anime and manga differences.

Wiki Work

ShadowKnight508 did a good job on Shadow Group and its members' story arcs and powers: Unsho, Kosei, Takumi, Kotaro, and Kiriya. All I did was format volumes 1, 2, and 3 and did Lamia's page from origin to powers.

Spoiler Alert!!!! Spoiler Alert!!!

I added Hilda's battle images because I can't resist uploading such cool scenes. Sorry for spoiling you.

Great work on this latest edition of the Weekly Beelzebub feature, Takashichea! This episode was quite enjoyable to watch, from the new teacher on the block that knocks Oga and Toujou out to Beel slapping Oga back into reality and Hilda's brief but awesome fight with Zenjuro towards the end.

Oga snaps back into reality from Beel's slap, while Furuichi and members from the Red Tails applaud

@ShadowKnight508:

Yeah. This episode was funnier and exciting than the volleyball episodes.

Screw the invisible spoiler rules!

Zenjuro: Hmm. It's not black but white?
Zenjuro: Hmm. It's not black but white?

LOL

@takashichea:

Awesome article Taka! I havent watched the episode yet, but I have read the manga :D Zenjuro Saotome is one of my favorite characters of the anime (my favorite being Tojo),

The baby Beel slap was priceless in the manga...I think I remember saving that manga page 'cuz I liked it so much.

This is kinda random but is it just me or does Saotome have a slight resemblance to Jack Sparrow? I think its the black hair and the red bandanna.

Do you see the resemblance?
