It is the dark century and the people are suffering under the rule of the devil, Vandel, who is able to manipulate monsters. The Vandel Busters are a group of people who hunt these devils, and among them, the Zenon Squad is known to be the strongest busters on the continent. A young boy, Beet, dreams of joining the Zenon Squad. However, one day, as a result of Beet's fault, the Zenon squad was defeated by the devil, Beltose. The five dying busters sacrificed their life power into their five weapons, Saiga. After giving their weapons to Beet, they passed away. Years have passed since then and the young Vandel Buster, Beet, begins his adventure to carry out the Zenon Squad's will to put an end to the dark century.

What can I say about Beet the Vandel Buster? Its set in a world where humans and demons exist, its kinda like watching a RPG, I think that would be the best way to describe it. Mainly due to the reward systems they have inplace and the leveling system as well, so yeha its kinda like watching a rpg. which is kinda fun and saves you the time of having to question every character and searching high and low of items and spending hours leveling up.

There was just something about Beet that didn’t work. While there were plenty of cool bits and interesting characters (as well as a world setup I thought to be quite novel) it just didn’t seem to gel for me.

By the end of the first series (52 episodes) we've only really seen the coming together of four out of what looks to be a five man team and the series cuts off right in the middle. But apart from that there's read more

No spoilers.

This is my review of Beet the vandel buster. The anime series covers what id like to call the Grunide saga in the manga. The story itself is not new at all its a generic shonen type story, that does not mean its bad it just means that its not something that will blow your mind away.

Story- fair (6),

The art during the main story is okay, its good enough to convey the plot, however sometimes character faces and bodies seem off. The filler episodes at the end show this blemish.

First things first. My "reviews" system is explained on a blog entry. Which can be found through my profile.


Not much to stay regarding this battle shounen. It has simple concept, world and characters but it's simplicity is what made it fun to watch. It's about adventurers killing demons, gaining strength and levels. Enemies have star levels, hunters a.k.a busters gain levels from doing various thing. in a sense it gave a feeling of mmorpg. Party up, level skills, get exp, get levels, get money. It was a nice touch.

The main characters main goal is to pretty much, cleanse the world. Main characters consist of 3 read more
