A powerful delinquent named Oga is reluctantly chosen to be the human father to the son of the devil. Tagging along with the child is his demon caretaker, Hildegard. She has moved into Oga's house in order to help raise the baby. This is a dark-comedy+fighting type manga and since it deals with the supernatural, the humor can get pretty ridiculous at times. The overall feel of the manga never stays too serious. There will always be a gag or two to lighten the mood. If you're looking for epic fight scenes, skip ahead to the boss battles. Most of fights are going be very read more

The plot of this series is unique from most of the published manga in the same genre. The story begins with Oga, the protagonist finding a baby and becomes forced to care for him. The baby, Beelzebub(Hebrew for devil) is the heir to become the next king of the underworld but to become a being worthy of the seat he must be raised by a powerful human-which is Oga. The story mixes comedy and action in a smooth flow where the comedy doesn't stray from the story. Despite the protagonist's lack of common sense he is often reliable(the end justifies the read more

The story is filled with humour and has a plot with its great conflicts. I like a story that actually has a problem that takes time and effort to fix, and Beelzebub definitely gave me what I wanted. The arcs have a nice variety, and the story somehow weaves the violence and fights into it that makes it so hilarious, such as the Christmas arc. The manga artist has an amazing sense of timing when it comes to humor; most of the chapters are simply priceless.

However, I think the last arc was a little rushed and I didn't really understand it without read more

User Recommendations

If you have a liking for comedic school-based situations involving delinquents, then you have to check both of these series out. Not only do they provide really funny moments, but the main characters are pretty badass.
Both of these titles share a similar aesthetic; particularly in regard to narrative structure and character design. Both are heavily constructed with comedy and action in mind.
Both of these shounen titles revolve around demon children who have been or is currently being raised by a human parent. Although Beelzebub is more comedic and Ao no Exorcist is more plot heavy, both do feature a lot of action.
Unlikely heroes? Check. Overpowered main character? Check. Buildup to seemingly epic battles which eventually only last one punch? Check.

Shounen series about delinquents and school life. Plenty of comedy and plenty of fights.
Both with powerful delinquent main characters, who have to protect something; with supernatural themes of demons, ghost e.t.c.
