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

This is my first review, so read at your own risk.

I first found this when the manga website I used listed this above Naruto in popularity. Something that might topple that behemoth in popularity I had to see, so I went ahead and tried it. And it was oh so very promising. I had laughed within the first couple of minutes, the facial expressions were very good. The main character seemed interesting enough, and the absurd circumstances seemed like a break from the typical shonen.

And it did follow through, for a short time. The manga set up that there were 4 student bosses read more

Manga: Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
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.

Manga: Gintama
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.

Manga: One Punch-Man
Unlikely heroes? Check. Overpowered main character? Check. Buildup to seemingly epic battles which eventually only last one punch? Check.

Manga: SWOT
Shounen series about delinquents and school life. Plenty of comedy and plenty of fights. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Both start with the main character meeting a baby with strange powers. Also, both start as a comedy manga, but quickly evolve to a more action oriented one. 
reportRecommended by CrashRHCP
Manga: Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
Both with powerful delinquent main characters, who have to protect something; with supernatural themes of demons, ghost e.t.c.
