Beelzebub is a franchise created by Ryuhei Tamura. Beelzebub was first introduced as a one-shot manga, however, it became highly popular and was soon written as a full fledged franchise. Its serialization began in February 2009 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Shueisha published the Beelzebub manga into Tankobon volumes in July 2, 2009. Later, an anime version of the popular manga was produced Pierrot + and directed by Nobuhiro Takamoto on the network, Yomiuri TV, and it first aired on January 9, 2011. Also, Crunchyroll started its simulcast of Beelzebub. The anime has ended with a total of 60 episodes; the manga is an ongoing series with a total of 16 volumes.

The Story

Beelzebub is about a young man named Oga who gets into fights with delinquents at Ishiyama High, the poorest and dumbest school in Japan. One day by the river, Oga finds a strange man (Alaindelon) floating down the river. He splits the man with a karate chop and out comes a green haired baby, Beelzebub (Beel). He finds out from a wet nurse named Hildagarde who informs Oga that he must raise Beel to destroy humanity as proclaimed by the Demon Lord. Now, Oga finds himself stuck Beel until he finds someone worthy enough to raise Beel.

Hildagarde

Alaindelon (voiced by Wataru Takagi) is a dimensional transfer demon who helps Hilda and Oga with his powers. He has a strange affection for Furuichi which he displays in a playful manner.

Why Watch?

I recommend this anime for ages 10 and up. Though, there are some fan service such as revealing attires of Lord En's wet nurses and instances of homosexuality if you are bothered by those things.

Beelzebub has a great story and characters who appeared to be selfish, bizarre, and crazy, but the characters will grow on you. Oga and Beel do not get along at first, but as you watch the series, their bond grows. Like most Shonen shows, watch out for potential shipping relationships. For action and battles, it's great but not perfect. I find Beelzebub doing better in the comedic department than battles. Filler-wise, the anime can get filler heavy at the end because it caught up to the manga's storyline. The theme songs are quite good, and some of them you probably won't forget.

Manga or Anime?

Despite the anime's abrupt ending, I say try out the anime first, and when you finish all 60 episodes, you can read the manga and find little things such as censorship and manga exclusive characters. I find when you read the manga after the anime, you can picture hearing the anime characters' voices. It makes reading manga enjoyable.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a light-hearted comedic anime with no drama and some action, Beelzebub is an anime that you should try. There's not much anime out there that involves demons and delinquents.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for reading this guide. Please thank Annabanana, ShadowKnight508, Arrussel, and Sreenivas who are my teammates that worked hard on the wiki pages and promoting the franchise.

Winter Wrap Up 2012: Beelzebub by ShadowKnight508 and I.

In this segment of the 2012 Winter Wrap Up, both Takashichea and I break down just how the Beelzebub series performed during it's 60 episode run over a year-long period of time. Enjoy!

Takashichea

I remember Anna was working on this franchise and decided to try it out. It is about Oga, a delinquent, who finds a demon baby named Kaiser de Emperana IV or Beel for short. A wet nurse, Hilda, arrives to tell him that he has to raise the child to destroy humanity one day. Immediately, I got hooked on by the first episode. The series' humor is sometimes random and bizarre, and I love Oga, Beel, and Hilda's relationship and how much it grew. At first, Oga resents the fact that he has raise Beel to destroy humanity, and Beel causes a lot of stress in Oga's life such as electrocuting Oga if he is more than 15 meters, crying easily, and peeing a flood once in a while. In Hilda's case, she is cold and abusive to Oga yet kind and caring to Beel like a mother. Throughout the series, both Hilda and Oga work together to raise Beel together and got close like dysfunctional parents. Speaking of parents, Oga's family believes Oga is the father of Hilda's child (Beel), and they force Oga to be a good husband. Even though Oga finds Hilda hard to please and cruel, he does care for her not in a direct, affectionate manner. One time, he attempts to avenge Hilda who got impaled by Hecados and taken by Jabberwock's dragon by forcing himself to take on the whole demon army. For Hilda, there is a special episode that reveals how she is warming up to Oga and when she believes that Oga is the best parent for Beel. Overall, Beelzebub anime is not known for its battles but for its strong points: humor, characters, and story.

Worst fight
Worst fight

What I don't like about Beelzebub are the censorship, the flashy techniques like Miki's, and how the fan disservice can quickly turn from funny to nasty. Some battles like Oga and Hilda's left me unsatisfied. When Hilda and Aoi fight, I feel their battle is too short. There's another time they fight, but it is for wooing Beel who is in Oga's body. In Oga's case, his rematch with Hidetora Toujou is terrible. Most of the action is seen because the screen is focused on a water strider while laughter from the two maniacs are heard. In this anime, the attacks and some of the characters are envelop in aura during battle. Miki's attacks and aura is a bit too much. One of them look like a Death Ball from Dragon Ball Z. With the fan disservice, Alaindelon's affections for Furuichi is funny at first, but it gets boring and creepy later. Finally, censorship is quite noticeable if you read the manga with the anime. Beelzebub anime does not show guns or drugs with minors. It is tolerant with fan service such exposing some cleavage. Take at look Lord En's group of wet nurses. The violence is toned down because some of punches and kicks are not show to be connected. The most drastic change is when Hilda gets impaled by Hecados.

Oga and Beel
Oga and Beel

For the ending, I find it wishy washy like the Demon Lord. Throughout the series, Oga teaches Beel to be a man. By the river where Oga and Beel first met, Oga shares with Beel some of his croquette and last words. He tells Beel to cry and let it all out. To his surprise, Beel did not shock him when crying. I find this great for Beel's character development. During the credits, Beel comes back since the Demon Lord changed his mind. Beel still needs Oga's help to destroy humanity and become a great ruler. The positive thing about this change is that the series has a chance to be revived for a second season without plot holes. On the other hand, Beel's character development just crumbles.

I recommend Beelzebub for fans who are looking for a light-hearted comedic anime with tough delinquents and no drama. If you compare to other shonen shows, it has a unique story. There's not much anime out there that revolves around raising a child.

Oga: What? Our awesome series was stopped at only 60 episodes? You haven't heard the last of us!
Oga: What? Our awesome series was stopped at only 60 episodes? You haven't heard the last of us!

When I had originally learned about Beelzebub in the fall of 2010 as part of the Winter 2010/2011 Anime Season Preview, I must admit that I had little to no interest in the series, for I was already juggling several series (mainly BLEACH, Gurren Lagann, and One Piece) at the time and I felt that it would be counter-productive to start up another series. Fast forward to the end of June last year, when I found myself in a rut and feeling bored with the series that I was trying to play catch-up with. For the previous few weeks, I had taken notice of both fellow AV users AnnaBanana and Takashichea's hard work in the AV Wiki Database on the Beelzebub franchise, doing a brilliant job with each episode page that they worked tirelessly on. After reading through several of the pages they worked on, I decided to give Beelzebub a 5-episode trial (what I do with any series that I take interest in) to see if it truly warranted my attention. With my premium CrunchyRoll subscription in hand, I settled down at my desk and started my viewing of Beelzebub.

Now, almost eleven months after I had originally decided to give the series a try, I am proud to say that I was not only impressed with this series, but it became almost addictive to watch, mainly due to the wonderful cast of characters and the great humor that the series utilized within each episode. From the great cast of characters that most can connect with to the struggles that the hapless delinquent Oga Tatsumi endures in his pursuit to take back control of his hectic life after Beel enters his life, Beelzebub rarely fails to not impress (apart from some of the filler episodes). For those who are not aware of what Beelzebub is, I shall give you a brief breakdown from the main franchise page:

Beelzebub is the tale of a delinquent named Oga Tatsumi, who finds a man floating down the river. He quite literally splits into half, revealing a baby carried within him (nope, we're not kidding). Oga then discovers that this baby is Baby Beel, youngest son of the Demon King and destined to destroy humanity. Now, Oga must either herald the coming of the Antichrist, or find another unlucky soul to hand him over to. Problem is, that's not so easy. Only someone more powerful and more evil than Oga would be able to handle the baby, and people like that are in short supply.
Now, Oga must find a new parent for Baby Beel, while juggling his opponents, both human and not, and trying to keep himself alive. In the beginning of the story, it was shown that Oga was trying to give the baby to other students at Ishiyama High, and after that the attempt failed. Soon, however, Oga figured that someone could take the baby, he/she would just have to be more evil and stronger than he.

With great animation, lovable characters, wonderful humor, and a interesting story that most likely keep most entertained throughout the entire sixty episode run, Beelzebub managed to rise above and beyond my expectations and never failed to disappoint me. From the random humor to the interesting characters to the fighting segments and all points in-between, Beelzebub delivered the goods. Although I have yet to finish the entire run that the series had (stopped at Ep. 46 due to college, looking forward to restarting it later next week), I am all for recommending this series to everyone who can appreciate a great anime franchise that has the perfect blend of elements that makes this show so enjoyable to watch. The character interactions are great, from Aoi's multiple attempts to win Oga's love and affection to Furuichi's vivid fantasies about being with the cold, stern Hildagarde to the hapless punks and fodder characters that get utterly demolished at the hands of the members of the THHK, their loyal followers, and especially everyone that gets in Oga's way.

If you are looking for a wonderful show that has humor, characters, and a story that will not disappoint, go and give Beelzebub a try. You won't regret it.

Overview

Hello everyone and welcome to the Weekly Beelzebub report! I'm Taka, your average wiki editor and part of the Beelzebub team. The last episode of Beelzebub was a filler, and this week, we get another filler with two stories. Let's see if episode 53 is good or not.

*I had to shorten Baby Beelzebub's First Conquest/Furuichi Falls In Love. It's such a long title.

Teammates: Annabanana, ShadowKnight508, Sreenivas, and Arrussel.

Plot

Ep. 53: Baby Beelzebub's First Conquest/Furuichi Falls In Love - "Akachan beruzebubu-hatsu no seifuku/ Furuichi wa koiniochiru" (赤ちゃんベルゼブブ初の制服/古市は恋に落ちる)

1st Story: When Hilda gets a request from the demon king about filming Beel's first conquest, she, Oga, and the others follow Beel on his quest.

2nd Story: Even though Furuichi's home has been destroyed, Furuichi's life brightens a bit when he meets a girl who he believes likes him. Will Furuichi get a girlfriend?

Find out by watching Beelzebub!

Beware of Spoilers!

  • Baby Beel finally shows that he is a man in this episode as he conquers Furuichi's house and lay waste to everyone in his way. However, that's not the case. Beel only conquer one thing by himself, a pit bull who wants his milk. I thought that Beel is going to use his glare or his electric attacks. Instead, Beel pees on the dog. Sometimes, Beelzebub is just unpredictable.
  • For Furuichi, don't ever change your perverted side.
  • Speaking of "firsts," this episode shows Beelzebub's first conquest and the first girl who is interested in Furuichi.
  • Furuichi and Nene's Relationship:
    It's interesting to see Nene giving Furuichi, a fruit punch. However, Furuichi ruins the moment by asking her to give the one that she had drank from. That is a good ending to this episode.

Bad

  • This episode is much better than the last episode, And There Were No Delinquents. The only bad thing I can think is that fans want Beelzebub to resume its track to main storyline. It has been two filler episodes, and #54 is a filler too.
  • Too much fillers in a row is not good for Beelzebub.

Bizarre

Furuichi's Embarrassing Moments

  • If you looked closely when Furuichi and Yuko talk in the nurse's office in Nene's point of view, you can see Yuko's feet is transparent. I didn't catch it until I watched it twice to do the wiki work.
  • Furuichi's Lewd Conducts #3: Furuichi has another dirty scene; this time it's with a guy! Alaindelon finally gets Furuichi in a lewd position, and poor Honoka had to see Furuichi and Alaindelon together. She saw her brother being a pedophile to Lamia, and now she sees Furuichi is getting on with a man.
  • Bastard Father: Beel's father is a lot like Lord En. It's a good thing that Beel is becoming more like Oga. Beel's father is an attention whore.

Overall, this episode gets a four out of five. It's a funny episode, but it lacks the action. Plus, it's the second filler in the row. It had bad timing.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading my team's weekly reports, and I thank my team for doing their best in their studies while juggling wiki work with lots of things.

Wiki Work Progress: I finished episode 53's wiki page. I didn't have time to work on characters since I had to add a lot of Shoujo manga series with some of the coolest wiki editors. ShadowKnight508 is busy working on One Piece while the rest of team are busy. We're all busy with school.

Overview

Welcome to the 11th weekly Beelzebub! I'm Taka, a fellow wiki editor who bring you guys news about a couple of shows on Anime Vice: Sket Dance, Blue Exorcist, and Fairy Tail. My team (Annabanana, ShadowKnight508, Arrussel, and Sreenivas) and I are here to discuss last week's Beelzebub's episode 43, Where Did My Brother Go?, and our work.

Be sure to check out Beelzebub's image gallery. ShadowKnight508 and Anna added some cool images.

Plot

Where Did My Brother Disappear To? - "Ani wa doko e kieta no deshō?" (兄はどこへ消えたのでしょう?)

While Oga, Beel, and the Shadow Group are going with Aoi, Ittousai, and Kota to the training grounds, Lamia and Furuichi are searching for Lord En. In their quest, Furuichi finds his Ishiyama classmates at the arcade and rounds them up. He asks them to help him to search for Lord En by informing them the attack on Oga and Aoi and insults on their school's name.

Will Furuichi convince his fellow delinquents to search for Lord En and will Oga get to the serious training?

Verdict

Beware of mild spoilers!

Good

Furuichi: It's not what it looks like!
Furuichi: It's not what it looks like!
  • Furuichi and Lamia had a crazy adventure. I guarantee you find their moments hilarious such as this caught in a lewd position moment.
  • The court house trial was great because in a way, it pokes fun at Oga who is supposed to be the typical main shonen and the strongest character in the show.
  • For Furuichi fans, you see Furuichi take over this episode with some pervy and narcissistic scenes.

Bad

Zenjuro: Toujou, you're not funny or smart
Zenjuro: Toujou, you're not funny or smart
  • Some jokes get old. Toujou's misunderstanding of Zenjuro's explanation of demons is only funny the first time.
  • For those who hate how Oga's training drags out, Oga did not do much training. It felt like a filler, but the whole episode is more focused on Lamia and Furuichi.

Bizarre

Alaindelon: Takayuki-kun! Damn that Lamia for taking my man!
Alaindelon: Takayuki-kun! Damn that Lamia for taking my man!
  • Alaindelon's jealousy is pretty crazy when he complains how Lamia is getting close to Furuichi to Hilda.
  • Furuichi has a sparkling nosebleed. I haven't seen other animes that have this. I seen nosebleeds that shoot out like geysers but not sparkling.
  • Lamia is a strange little girl because of Tsundere and sadistic behavior. She would resort to violence whether Furuichi restrains her. Furuichi and Lamia's relationship is pretty bizarre, but they both complement each other.

Overall, this episode is fantastic if you don't mind the lack of violence and fighting. You'll have a riot with watching this episode.

My team has trivia questions, an animated GIF, and stitched caps. Our teammate, Anna, added lovely stitched caps. For those who do not know what a stitched cap is, a stitched cap is an image that's been stretched to include more things. It could be stretched vertically or horizontally. Usually in wiki pages, stitched caps must be in its own gallery because episode caps or regular images are permitted in wiki pages.
