Welcome to the ninth weekly Beelzebub article! I'm your host, Taka, and I'm here to present this episode and my team's wiki work to you. For those who do know my team, my awesome teammates are Annabanana, ShadowKnight508, Arussel, and Sreenivas. Be sure to check out this episode's image gallery, too!
With Hilda down, Oga and Beel take on Hecadoth for some payback. At the same time, Kaname and Toujou's fight is interrupted by two, new demons, Graphel and Naga. Two brutal fights take place between the humans (one demon baby) and Behemoth's demon generals. Can Oga and Beel defeat Hecadoth and can Toujou and Kaname take down their opponents? Tune in and watch Beelzebub episode 40!
Beware of Spoilers! Keep in mind, I purposely do not cover everything in order keep the discussion going.
- Yuka's misunderstanding of the situation is funny. Plus, she reminds me of Aoi Kunieda who misunderstand's Oga's intention.
- Oga and Toujou's fights were spectacular. Well, Toujou's fight is better since more punches and kicks were exchanged without the flashy Zebul Spell animation.
- Zenjuro makes an appearance and crashes the party. He certainly made an impact on Behemoth's men.
- Kanzaki and Yuka make the comic relief part of the episode great while other scenes pale in comparison. See the bad section.
- I like to talk about the flow of the episode a lot. I like how comic relief scenes cool off the tension, but some scenes were not great.
- Alaindelon's scene with Furuichi is one of them. I get a good laugh at Alaindelon's relationship with Furuichi, but the fight scenes keep shifting to them witnessing strange and ominous things such as the maid outfit ripping and the cup cracking.
- The ending theme is too sudden and ruins the mood of the show. I love the ending theme because how cute Beel and Hilda dance. They should have transition it better and start the theme song when the episode finally ends.
- Censorship: After they make Hilda's impalement scene less visible and bloody in the anime (last episode), I could have sworn that Oga got impaled by Hecadoth. I have to read the manga chapter for this.
- Shizuka pulls out a policeman from out of nowhere. Where did that come from? See HammerSpace concept.
- Beel's like a kitty cat whose eyes glow in the dark.
- Plot hole: Where did Furuichi get more lewd magazines? They were burnt off in the last two episodes.
Overall, the episode is great with the right mix of action and comedy even with the redundant Alaindelon scenes.
Now, I want to introduce you to Annabanana, a beautiful wiki editor who first worked on Beelzebub series in winter 2010. She has been working hard by herself while some independent wiki editors who work a bit and leave. It was only in the summer that ShadowKnight508 and I joined her. Our team love and support her. This week, she added a lot of trivia questions for Fairy Tail and Beelzebub.
- Aoi Kunieda's questions: 1,
- Beel's questions: 1,
- Lord En's questions: 1, 2, 3,
- Behemoth's 34th Pillar Squad: 1,
