Banished from Heaven, Beelzebub rules over Pandemonium where former angels that turned into demons work. One day, Beelzebub gets a new attendant named Myurin. Beelzebub seemed wise and cool... but she's actually a girl that loves fluffy things! Myurin is shocked at this revelation but still tries to get closer to Beelzebub every day. They are surrounded by various other unique and clumsy demons, and this story might be about the demons giving a certain emotion a name... maybe.
This show is so god damn adorable it has literally purified my soul. Each character is unique and interesting and I love watching all of them. Both the opening and ending are great. Myurin (Mullin) is so precious and his relationship with Beezlebub is very cute they're like schoolchildren. I can only hope it gets cuter as the couple(s) actually form. The character designs are fantastic and the color palette is so pleasing. I love the contrasting concept of hell and demons being fluffy, pastel, and kawaii. It is a great break from all the heavy shows out there and extremely enjoyable.
Always imagined hell to be a Dark, Dangerous place full of torturous, deadly and a tormented place filled with savage beings and creatures?
Well you can throw all that imagination out of the window when you see what this anime beholds especially for an idea of the Underworld.
The anime revolves around Hell/Paradise called Pandemonium which is the mix of a bit of ancient and modern age developed setting with the very high element of cuteness, moe and Fluffiness (Yes you heard me) .
Meet our MC's Miss Beelzebub who is the supreme leader of the underworld who is a air head, a laid back adorable and
a pretty teenage looking girl who's obsessed with cute things and food with her favorite word being "MOFU MOFU" (soft/Fluffy in Japanese description) and her personal assistant/guardian Myurin, who takes care of her administration work, looks after her and makes sure she is not lazy & finishes her work and last of all is a bit of a tsundere nature wise.
Apart from this,there's also a special close relation between them which is lingering but is still developing. As Myurin really has admiration and respect for Beelzebub as the demon lord, but also likes her cute side and adores her secretly.Also Beelzebub is really dependent on myurin for her work and chores being a bit of a lazy, air head girl but also really values him and somewhere secretly also has a big soft spot for him, which is slowly developing into feelings.
Besides the MC we have our Side characters who have great enjoyable personalities as well ,for example:
Azazel , A manly ripped guy/Former Demon lord who is shy and speaks using placards and secretly also loves Cute things.
Berphegor a really cute shy girl who has big time anxiety talking to others except beelzebub. Her anxiety means she shakes from fear almost constantly and also has a nervous bladder when she is really frightened and she dashes to the washroom several times a minute.
Eurynome A big time Shotacon who's love for small boys grow no bounds and even drools, and has a ability where she can imagine a Grown up guy in his small boy form which is really hilarious when she reacts to it.
Azeroth, who calls himself Beelzebub's Elder brother though not related who is a small time siscon, but loves to flirt around with other girls most of the time and His Assistant Sargatans who is a sadist towards him, and despite her calm appearance loves punishing Azeroth when he lazes around flirting with girls and punishes him more harshly with wrestling moves when he calls her Flat. Despite her violence she also enjoys cute things but prefers to keep her hobby a secret.
This simple plot with hell and demon/fallen angel references with these main and side characters with their unique and enjoyable personalities and antics with the element of comedy and cuteness and a bit of romance make for a great relaxing and enjoyable series.
The Animation quality is top notch by LIDENFILMS, with their simple but elegant and bright colour's and beautiful creations which brings out the cuteness and lighthearted moments of the anime. The background music with the intro and outro are equally chill, calming & delightful to hear, along with a soothing and enjoyable narration in between scenes.
A soothing and warm series, purely about the happy stuff, real stress reliever, perfect for all those who are into this type of anime. I personally am and can't watch this show without smiling and giving a few laughs and just taking in the cuteness.
This series needs more recognition than it deserves, Hope more viewers delve into this show to have a really good and enjoyable time. Really good recommendation. :)
Right now, I'm just gonna say this off the bat: For what this series is, it is dedication to moe in the least expected of characters possible, and despite the score, I love this to bits.
Remember Beelzebub the series you watched back in the mid 2000s? Well, this is anything BUT that, and just from the title alone you would mistake for another entry in the Beelzebub series. Instead we get treated to a cast of characters that at best resemble more than just a moe series: characters that embody the naïve hidden love feelings that are mostly one-sided, but hopefully there will be more
than just the fantasy comedy feel to it. (Where's the "Romance" tag, MAL???)
Beelzebub herself as a demon status, she seems at the top of the world, but in fact she loves everything that is fluffy, and her new assistant Myurin is one of the characters I at first quite didn't like due to his subversive nature, but eventually his character grew on me that he tries to make everything as smooth sailing for Beelzebub, while growing his feelings for her every single moment. For now the other cast of characters haven't had their moments to shine yet, but let's see at the end of the path.
Art and animation is beautiful, reminiscent of how Liden Films were ONLY good at making Hanebado!'s animation stand out, and so far it's very simplistic but it gets the job done. Sound-wise, it's good too, nothing stands out yet again, but it portrays the series as it is to a T.
This season had so many hitters, but this series was fallen off to the wayside as the shovelware pile of Fall 2018. And I sincerely plead you, don't push this series aside, go watch it and be fluffed.
This show is SATIRE, from top to bottom. Satire is not for everyone and all types of satire are not for all types of satire lovers. If you don't care for satire then you may not enjoy this show.
At first glance this show may appear to be pure romantic fluff. However, when examined a little more closely, it reveals a level of adult kink that will delight the wicked of mind. The comedy is mostly found in the show's seeming inability to have a sweet moment without some detail twisting it towards wink-and-nudge perversion.
The characters have remarkable depth waiting to be found in
the subtle details that lead their characters beyond the seeming innocence they present at first "blush". The characters' names are meaningful. Even the FLUFF has significance.
The animation is a lesson straight out of SATIRE 101: Dangerous things come in pretty packages. The excessively pastel color pallet offers a perfect satirical twist on a standard depiction of hell. It's hell: it's supposed to be hard to look at!
I would like to encourage any viewers to take a deeper look before writing 'As Miss Beelzebub likes' off as simply "fluff".
