No problem, wish it didn't work that way but such is life for our favorite anime.

All good things must come to an end.

On a good note, I haven't watched the anime yet so I guess I should start.


Anime wasn't that good as manga tho.

I'm still asking myself why did it actually end... the mangaka lost the lust to or what , since it was so popular , and it could have +1000 chapters with the "growing up" thing .


Beel at the end was constantly on the bottom of Jump ratings, occasionally avoiding rock bottom if lucky. Sadly that means it was far from popular, atleast relative to the powerhouses.

Horrible, rushed and unexpected.
The previous arc was sort of bad but the last one got Beelzebub back on the right track and suddenly it ends?

Really weird since it was popular too and Shounen Jump cares mostly about popularity.


Horrible? naaaaaaaaaaaaah i just finished reading the manga from the start today started reading it yesterday its fucking amazing tbh i think the ending was great.

im pretty sure you should know what horrible is since you read naruto and all :P

Because the Manga is done there is an even less chance that the anime will continue in the future. One of the reasons an anime gets adapted in the first place is to promote manga sales, but with the manga now done.. In short the nearly 0% chance that the anime would come back to life is now even less than that, namely borderline impossible. Don't get me wrong i liked the anime, and i liked the relationship potentials, but its not gonna get revived by Shenron barring a miracle.

Does this news means that the Beelzebub anime will finally return with new episodes?


No of course not. Why should it?


Because the manga is done, so they dont have to worry about running out of chapters to animate or making filler.

What are you talking about? It's been on the wrong end of the rankings for months. JUMP had no choice but to cancel it.

Well i didn't see the end coming. It's clearly rushed.

Feb 24, 2014 8:53 AM by Picobello

Its a real shame. I still really enjoy it.

Feb 22, 2014 9:25 AM by Shintop

That explains why everything was rushed in the last chapters. I will miss this manga for sure.
