Synopsis

The story follows the "strongest juvenile delinquent," Tatsumi Oga, a first year at Ishiyama High, the school for delinquents. One day while sleeping next to a river, he sees a man floating down it. Tatsumi pulls him to shore, and the man splits in half revealing a baby boy. This boy is the son of the demon king, and Tatsumi has been chosen as the one to raise it with the baby's demon maid, Hilda. The story follows his life with the child at the delinquent school.

"He's sweating alot."
"...THAT'S NOT SWEAT, THAT'S --[SPOILER]--"

Give this anime about 2minutes, and you'll already be laughing your ass off. I'm usually very picky with my comedy animes. I need them to be surprising, unique, and more than anything --weird. (Seriously...nothing normal is EVER FUNNY.)

Story: 8/10

What you get:

- A tougher-than-anyone yankee
- ...paired up with a Demon-Lord Baby (who is adorable)
- ...and is perpetually naked.
- A giant beefy man whose ability to transport people is nothing short of NUTS, not to mention GROSS and disturbing.
- VERY easily distracted Demon-Lord-King who puts Mahjong over destroying the human race
- AND MORE.

Art: 9/10

I will not deny, I'll be a little biased towards this anime cuz my favourite genre is comedy and the supernatural, so this was quite the perfect show for me.

Story:
Once upon a time, in a land faraway, there was a barbaric, ruthless, defiant, demon-like bastard who thought nothing of his fellow man. And under some strange as heck circumstances, he started to raise a baby.

Correction. Not just any baby. The next great demon lord!

And so we follow this man, Oga and Baby Beel with their wacky so called 'adventures'. The story's plot is not deep or anything, however it does feature something out of our read more

Beelzebub is a genuinely funny anime. And I mean laugh out loud 'til your sides hurt sort of funny. You know you're in for a good time when we are introduced to the basic storyline in the first episode... a huge guy floating down the river spots a “handsome and good looking young man” "who cared nothing for his follow humans". He proceeds to then bestow the green haired demon baby (Beelzebub) unto our protagonist, Oga Tatsumi, in one of the strangest fashions imaginable, before taking with an impressive ballerina pirouette. Hijinks ensue when the baby's beautiful demon maid servant, Hildegarde comes looking for the read more

I give this serise a 6, which may come as a suprise to others, yet carefull though has gone into this...

When the manga came out, I though it sounded promising and in all honesty, it came off to a good start; it was entertaining and the plot is actually fairly brilliant.
Unfortuantley, it slowed down. I gave up a while back, hoping to start reading when it became eventful.
Around a year ago however, I heared an anime was in production; so I dropped the manga in order to fully enjoy this serise in motion picture and erase predictability; at a faster pace, this wasn't the case.

Anime: Gintama
Oga is like Gintoki. Main characters, pretty aloof and sometimes naive but surprisingly strong.

Furuichi is like Shinpachi. Pretty weak and screams a lot, often frustrated with the main character and points out to obvious when the main character is oblivious. Total spazzes.

Hilde is like Kagura in the sense of being the only girl in the group. Kagura is more crazy, but both girls are pretty strong and sometimes also aloof.

Beel and Sadaharu are pretty strong as well, and are more like the mascosts even though Beel is a baby.

Lots of fights, action, and crazy humor in both  read more

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
Both include Demons coming to Earth.

Great combination of action and comedy which is executed extremely well.

Both have badass MC and a comedic partner.

Anime: Bleach
Many similarities between both series. There's young typical boy who is attending school, but after few minutes, we can see, that there's much more about him and that's not to be only his delinquent's habits. First episode shows us characters from different world, who came to our place, because of their own reasons. I didn't read manga, but I think, there will be many many more charas, so we are receiving another "never ending story".

Anime: Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
• Both animes begin with a teenager getting involved with the demon realm without having a say in it.
• In both Yu Yu Hakusho's and Beelzebub's universe exists a mazoku (demon) race.
• Both main characters are deliquents,being the strongest in their school.
• Both have young,baby looking “demon lords” ( Bel and Koenma).Altough Koenma has over 500 years and can transform into an adult,whereas Bel is really a newborn.
• Both are shounens where the main character gets more powerful with each fight,gaining "nakamas" along the way.
