Ishiyama High is a school populated entirely by delinquents, where nonstop violence and lawlessness are the norm. However, there is one universally acknowledged rule—don't cross first year student Tatsumi Oga, Ishiyama's most vicious fighter.

One day, Oga is by a riverbed when he encounters a man floating down the river. After being retrieved by Oga, the man splits down the middle to reveal a baby, which crawls onto Oga's back and immediately forms an attachment to him. Though he doesn't know it yet, this baby is named Kaiser de Emperana Beelzebub IV, or "Baby Beel" for short—the son of the Demon Lord!

As if finding the future Lord of the Underworld isn't enough, Oga is also confronted by Hildegard, Beel's demon maid who insists he take responsibility as Beel's guardian. Together they attempt to raise Baby Beel—although surrounded by juvenile delinquents and demonic powers, the two of them may be in for more of a challenge than they can imagine.

Comedy. This is what Beelzebub is honestly about. Its absurdity, the insanity--that is the point it presses on the most, and fortunately it has yet to fail to get its point across. I swear, every chapter makes you laugh out loud, even the more serious ones have something to smile about. When the day comes I can't utter a giggle after reading a chapter is the day this manga will end. It's the humor that keeps it fresh and exciting. 95% sure it would die without it.

The plot is slow and tedious. Don't get me wrong, it goes then stops. A few teases, but never enough to shift the story in a different direction. You can feel the build up with each arc though. With each arc he pulls the curtain back a little bit. It can be frustrating at times. You want more, but instead he gives us what feels like filler arcs (which really are more minor character/major character interaction/background arcs. So they're not USELESS just less main plot and more subplot). At the moment it feels pretty filler, but it's hilarious and I'm invested in these characters and "pairs" so I could care less.

Lastly are the characters. For a shounen, I think we have some pretty unique people here (who doesn't love baby Beel?). For once the females within this shounen are pretty badass. Not in a controlling, soft way, but in a physically agressive way. Aoi and Hilda--dayuuuum. These two have every male on their backs (NOT SEXUALLGOSH). And you also have a range of minor characters that grow more involved with the plot and Oga's adventures. They really start to grow on you. They're not overbearing but they're sassy enough to keep you awake.

The relationships between these characters is surprisingly strong--or at least between the ones that matter. Whenever a rare moment of emotion is seen, it feels genuine and never forced. That's another thing about this manga--it never feels forced. Everything is fluid, even if some things are INSANE. There's this great consistency.

Yes, this is a battle manga but there's less emphasis on "battle." Fighting is a better word. Tons of fighting, but no real battles. Oga isn't the type of guy to pound his feelings into someone nor does he care about someone else's feelings. He does follow under some lead shounen stereotypes but overall he's too much fun to hate. His DGAF personality is what makes him the most fun. He doesn't care if he beats or hugs the shit out of someone.

I highly suggest you read the first chapter before passing it by. If you dont' like the humor, then I'd highly suggest you pass this because Beelzebub is all about the funny.

A Parody of the Typical Jump Battle Manga   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

This manga is the opposite of a shounen battle manga. What do I mean? You know how shounen battle manga starts with a some pathetic guy who's special and through a series of lucky breaks becomes a bad ass - this series starts off with a badass who finds he's not badass enough.

You know how shounen battle mangas protagonists get beat down by someone random stronger than them and they spend 30 chapters powering up? This manga does it in 3 pages and gets back to what's important, the plot!

You know how when the protagonist is a super powered world destroying badass and then somehow struggles to beat down the boss he had trouble with and then even has trouble beating down the next boss's lackeys because he inexplicably doesn't use the new godlike power he has? There are multiple instances of 1 move battles because the protagonist is a god like badass, why the fuck should the mangacka waste ink drawing a battle scene?

You know how after 500 chapters you get sick of shounen battle mangas? This one is unfortunately starting to get there, but it is definitely an experience that's worth the ride and it is still worth reading after 130 chapters.

You tired of wimpy ass protagonists bawling about friendship and swooning helpless women falling at their feet? Then read this.

very rarely do i come across a weekly shounen as good as this one, instead of explaining how great this shit is, lets just run a checklist:

- good story: check
- good plot: check
- likable protagonist :check (he's manly, nuff said..)
- good art: check (for a weekly shounen atleast)
- comedy that actually makes you laugh: check
- on point action scenes: check
- likable heroin: check
- likable side characters : check

i think you get the point, if you're into Yankee mangas, or just shounens in general you should give this 1 a shot, cuzz so far so good

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?"
*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.

Why is that so bad just because it's not a battle manga?

I've just read the last chapter (226) from RHS, and, it bring back the humour that has been postpone by some battle. Come on, the mangaka put lots of effort to make some unique joke! And story goes pretty well too! IMO, this might be the second GTO, though, the protagonist can't be as bad ass as Onizuka.

Art is well-drawn, scanned clearly, and translate properly, as expect from RHS. I don't get it why people complain so much because it's not a battle manga.... The battles are like... a break beetween fun parts... This manga deserves more respect.

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.

Hillarious!!! I've even clapped in front of the computer after a chapter, it's truly funny! I put great importance on romance, so that substracts from it a little bit, but the comedy more than makes up for it. I love how i have something to laugh about every week, just the best.

BEST shonen series   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
by FacistHalfNerd
March 20th, 2010, 9:43pm
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.

Best shounen 2009 hands down

This manga is ridiculous, I mean, from the description, it's already ridiculous. The author has no interest in anything "normal". So instead, in Beelzebub you will find an unusually fast-paced manga with weirdly-dressed characters, ridiculous expressions, retarded story setting, and unorthodox story telling.

But it's ridiculously good.

What do you mean there's no story? What do you mean there's no adventure?

This manga is a blend of humor, action, adventure, b.s, your cat, your neighbor facial hair and a few expired ramen.

He level up just like any other (Hero?) main character, tons of crazy fights and there's a few chapter where they go on an adventure. The amount of humor and plot is just perfect. You get enough humor to Laugh your as- off and enough plot to continue reading it. Though the plot is not serious but it's a plot non the less. I've read some serious manga with plot that will make this manga look sane.
