"He's sweating alot."

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

Art: 9/10

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

Although comedy is not my favorite genre, this is a rare exception. Even with a large part of the show being action related, the comedy of it shines through.

If you have seen the show, you know that the story is about a man who is suddenly gifted a strange baby. What follows is a story involving his close friends, a "maid", and the students at various high schools.

The interesting part of this show is how some characters bounce off of each other, and the fact that the characters are very self aware.

This show is not meant to be taken seriously, but it read more

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.

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

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.
