Bait and Switch

Beelzebub starts out with a lot of potential; your standard shounen manga does not feature an antihero protagonist (at least, one not of the Ikari Shinji mold). The first few volumes are both witty and fresh, ostensibly promising that the manga will subvert tropes and upset expectations. Instead of the protagonist vowing to be stronger, he is constantly flummoxed by the weakness of his enemies.

Then it starts to go downhill, fast. By chapter 90, I was drowning in a quagmire of shounen archetypes, and mere vestiges of "anti-" remained clinging to the hero. Some of the humor remains, but not a whole lot else. The more "serious" the plot becomes, the more novelty it loses. I'm sure Tamura Ryuuhei decided he could only milk the gags so long before he had to actually "go somewhere" with the story; unfortunately, it looks like the gags were all he had, because he is currently digging into what looks to be a long beaten-up/train/power-up/protect&fight cycle. That is exactly where other shounen has gone before, and I don't want to go there again.

first starts off being kinda..regular, nothing too much going on, just a couple of delinquents fighting, but later on you feel theres something bigger.
Something cooler past ch.60+. Also made me laugh a couple of times throughout.

Humour

The future of Weekly Shounen Jump. that is if Ryuhei can continue with the A-W-E-S-O-M-E humour.

the story is picking up the pace. and the manga is going on a pretty typical shounen battle manga route. but the thing that will keep it unique will be the humour. And Furuichi (i swear he is the best character in this magazine).

Rushing??No Plot???

I have no idea why people are saying that the mangaka is rushing or that there's no plot. The plot is original, funny, and actually has a lot of potential to become really deep. Think about it so far there hasn't been much development in oga's powers, there's also a great deal to learn about the demon world. I think everything is going fine as it is and that in a few chapters there'll be a new arc that will really pull people back into it. Seriously this is a MUST read for any shounen fan.

Great Potential

If you're looking for an action-packed manga that skips all the philosophical ideas that shounen manga usually have (i.e. "I will bring blahblah back because he is my friend!") then this manga is definitely it!

Many people will criticize it because they feel that the plot is lacking or the mangaka is rushing, but the true purpose of this manga is simply fighting and comedy.

Personally, I feel like people are dropping this manga way too quickly before it's developed. So it's really not rushed at all. Right now, at chapter 72, we still haven't been given much information about the baby. This just shows that there is much more to wait for and read before deciding that this manga boring.

Even though it's still a wait, the comedy will keep you going. It's filled with some hilarious scenes.

If you're the type that doesn't mind waiting for a manga to reach the apex, then this manga is definitely worth a shot. Because the reviews here definitely don't reveal the true potential of this manga!

Overestimated   
Rating: N/A

Really overestimated manga. Read the first 30 chapters and dropped it after that because the story shows the same think over and over again. It is too fast-paced so you never get to know the characters either. It was funny as hell in the beginning, but then the jokes kept getting less funny and in the end I found myself not laughing anymore. When I read a manga and feel that it is getting boring, then it means the chapters are not keeping me entertained anymore. And when I keep feeling the same way 5-10 chapters forward and nothing promising seems to come, then I drop it.

I think it's been said before but the best thing about Beelzebub isn't the ridiculously extremely funny humor its got.
It isn't the awesomeness that Oga displays in almost every chapter.
It isn't the awesome baby demon.

The fact that it skips all of the "shounen bullshit" that every shounen has got makes it totally a must read!

"How.. how can you still be standing?"
"You hurt my friends AND I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU BAD GUY NUMBER #1"
*Super secret attack move that will become over-used from now on*

This^ will not be in this manga. No more "friends are the most important thing in the world", "pathetic girls who only yells yells yells and keeps on whining about how weak they are" ETC ETC.

READ THIS NOW! I can with utmost certainty say that this will become huge once it becomes an anime.

This is a good manga, with action, comedy and a good characters. I can't help feeling however that the plot is sadly lacking. I feel as though the mangaka is rushing through things too quickly. I want a more complex plot to develop quickly or I feel as though my interest in this series will fade sad

BEST shonen series   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

And I say best. It's got everything that a great shonen should have. And more! It has a plot, yes, but that's not enough to erode the wicked humour involved. The characters are awesome, the plot and pacing are just right, and the humour is about the best I've seen around. Every chapter had action and comedy, and together with Baby Beel, this is the best you'll get for shonen.

A must read for ALL manga fans.
