Takamine Kiyomaro, a depressed don't-care-about-the-world guy, was suddenly given a little demon named Gash Bell to take care of. Little does he know that Gash is embroiled into an intense fight to see who is the ruler of the demon world. All of the demons have to pick a master on Earth and duke it out with other demons until one survives. Needless to say, Kiyomaro becomes Gash's master, and through their many battles, Kiyomaro learns the importance of friendship and courage.


The English release of the series under the name Zatch Bell! was edited, removing things like blood and nudity with Gash (Zatch in the English version) wearing boxers instead of being fully naked. The uncut Japanese version of the series has never seen an official English release.

VIZ Media licensed and dubbed the first 104 episodes of Konjiki no Gash Bell!! under the name Zatch Bell!, but only released the first 52 episodes on DVD. In December 2013, Flatiron Film Company later released the first 104 episodes on DVD.

WARNING!: if you are going to watch this, the story does not have a proper ending (the author injured his hand and they couldn't continue the anime, so they forced an unfinished ending) so you have to read the manga in a certain chapter to know how the story ends. I think it's understandable but i'm still disappointed of the ending that we have recieved and that is a reason why i don't give it a better score.

In general I liked this anime, this is a story of 100 demons fighting to be the demon king and I think my favourite part is the bond ...

I really enjoyed everything about this anime, would certainly recomend it, really love the characters and story, truly a creative and well executed story.

But then we get to the point why i dont rate it higher, a lack of conclusion, the conclusion to the final arc of the anime is not as satisfatory as one might expect, it falls into those animes that ends but the story didn't actually end.

I rated this one solely based on the anime, but it's impossible not to mention the manga, the manga has a different ending to the final arc of the anime that's not only more satisfatory but ...

This simply does not work well as an anime like it does as a manga. The only part that does work is Gash being cute due to the greatly innocent/cute voice. A big culprit in this is the slow pacing of everything - all the dramatic cries, the pacing of any fight, the way people move - which really takes the impact out of the comedy, the fighting, and the drama. It especially hurts the fighting, in which everyone always seems to have an incredibly long time to finish the opponent off, yet strangely never does so. They also cut off the entire last arc ...
