Great Comedy

It's been a while since I laughed this hard while reading a manga. I thought I had grown used to all the common Japanese manga jokes but this manga's comedy is just unpredictable. The characters are the next best part and some of them are so completely over-the-top that they wouldn't work in any manga except for this one. The action is good but mostly one-sided, it mostly is used for comedic effect. The only real weakness I could find was the plot but even that looks like it could pick up further down the line based on the for-shadowing.

This good. This is interesting, but who is this black haired girl? I don't like her. She thinks she can come in here and fall in love with Oga after knowing him for 5 seconds. I hate people like her. They have no tact and think they can love whoever they want and do whatever they want. I hope someone teaches that person a lesson. I wish Oga or Hilda would've beat her.

And I love the chapter title pictures. The ones with Hild and Oga and Beel. They look like a perfect couple in them. Even though I can't see them being a couple in the manga. Well you never know!

the story is great, I mean Oga starts as a "obey me bastards" and...all the characters have their little time in the story. Yes it has some demons because duh! there are demons so something like that was obvious, the story is great and you can laugh a lot.

Still Good

I mean, there is a lot of cliches that have recently appeared but its shonen. Oga still is pretty damn awesome and the other characters are now given a chance to shine. Sure, I miss the no-demon ages where it was just I beat you up and you beat me but, there is bound to be a limit on how much of that we can have. There's a demon baby and now, we are focusing on the demonic aspect as well as how much Oga can improve.

It is still pretty comedic, a lot of moments where you laugh and just try to hold back your giggles before going to the next page.

I think that it is still a read, funny, awesome, crazy characters. Everything is in this one manga.

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.

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.

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!
