Beelzebub episode 01

Thought this blog could do with something a bit more interesting, so – perhaps the occasional review would do. This is pretty much my first so don’t mind the shortness/spelling etc ^_^

First to start off.. What is Beelzebub?  Well, he is usually refered to as a demon and the name of one of the seven princes of Hell. But i’m not getting into detail with this side.- see wiki article

The story follows the “strongest juvenile delinquent”, Oga Tatsumi, who is a first year in “Ishiyama High” the school for delinquents. He starts telling the story to his best friend Furuichi Takayuki (only friend)  of one day he is “fishing” by the river (actually, dunking another diliquent who tried to kill hime in his sleeep in the river) discovers a huge man floating down the river, pull’s him ashore and splits him in half..revealing a baby boy with green hair, who literally attaches himself to Oga.

This kid… is Beelzebub IV, son of the Demon King, Beelzebub. The story follows his life with the child and at the delinquent school.

From the same producers, Studio Pierrot, that also run Bleach, Naruto and various others, the likelyhood is hight that this will be another, but one can only hope that it does not end up as a filler-filled story.

As this is only the first episode will give my first impressions here, this post will probably be edited after posting,… it is after 1am in the morning 😉

Animation: Not overly detailed, but this is what suits this type of shounen show. Adore the exaggerated  expressions/reactions of the characters 8/10

Furuichi Takayuki

 

Sound/voice actors: Ive read in several places people are having a hard time getting used to the characters voices, but in my personal opinion they suited the character reasonably well. No complaints here, and Beelze… was just cute ^^ .. not what one expects of a Demon KIng, ne~?  8/10
OP: “Dadada” by GROUP Tamashii, ED “Answer” by NO3B

Story: Laughed through out most of the episode. Most of the main characters are introduced within in the first 10min, won’t spoil it for those who hasvn’t read the manga. As long as it’s not another ‘Bleach’ , which i have my doubts there, we will have to wait and see, this will be a fun series to follow this year and maybe beyond =)

Characters: Certainly I think they are the highlight of the series. From  Beel the cute, mischef, &  destructive baby ( tanstrums  = falling powerlines, rooms blowing up). Diliquent Oga, and Hilda, the eye-candy ,  Goth-Lolita-dressed Maid from Hell sent to earth find a human to raise Beel. And last, but not least Alaindelon, the demon who was split open revealing Beelzebub at begining, a massive guy, reminds me of the character Tessai Tsukabishi from Bleach, just a bit more, extravagant, might be the right word?

Hilda, the protective, cold maid

Episode 01 rating: 7.5/10

And to finish off… DAH DAH DAAH … DABI DE BUBUH … DABI DE BUBUH… DABI DE BUBUH… DABI DE BUBUH… DAH DAH DAAH 🙂
