While sailing the seven seas, I came across this exquisite title. Taken in by the cover and synopsis, I decided to give it a go. And oh bØy, what a wild ride.
Hareluya is the heir of the almighty God. But he has a hedonistic life style and despise human beings. To teach him humility, He sends His son to Japan as a teenage human deprived of most powers. Now Hareluya tries to live his days as a high school delinquent.
If you want to explore deep philosophical themes through the religious symbolism of this series, you’ll end up disappointed. Episodes revolve around the cast facing their
daily challenges, and they are usually self-contained stories. While recurring characters all have their personal drama, the main focus is on the comedic interactions of Hareluya and his mates.
Like other anime and manga from the 90s and early 00s depicting delinquents, many episodes involve the crew picking fights against hoodlums or saving others from bullies. The comedy of Hareluya II Boy is absurd: they face aliens, a cinema club obssessed with zombie films, ghosts, and other oddities. The recurring characters are charismatic, and their chemistry is enjoyable to watch.
Check this anime:
- If you liked 90s/00s delinquent anime, such as GTO; Kyou kara Ore wa; Gokusen; Angel Densetsu;
- If you liked The Devil is a Part-Timer for the supernatural entities trying their luck in our world;
- If you liked Lucifer (TV series or comics);
- If you want to see God’s son pacifying the streets of Toyko with a frying pan.
“Sorry, it’s time for Mass. I’m gonna head home.” - God
