Discuss the Manga Here.
Average first episode, love the OP. The humor is kinda weird.
This one was way better than the first one. Satan shouting "Oh my God" . Hozuki is awesome, even able to scare Satan, the references, the gags, that pant discussion, everything was great.
I lost it at the "Oh my God!" said by Satan.
Hozuki must be really scary to make Satan shout that. LOL
This show it's getting better and better with each episode.
The humour is, how would I describe it, pretty Japanese-centric (和風気味) so I'd assume it would be a little hard to get the gags unless there was prior knowledge of Japanese folklore. (Like the Momotaro story for example.)
I'm glad that there's a distinction between European hell that Hoozuki referred to as "E.U." and Japanese hell. Satan must have been shocked that a subordinate of Enma was much more threatening than either one of them.
I have just seen episode 2! And it is indeed very funny. I enjoyed the interaction between Hoozuki, Enma, and Satan in this episode. The part where Hoozuki treated Enma like a kind of slave in front of Satan, when he cooked, and when he scared Satan so bad due to a mistake in writing were all awesome. If the series continues to be refreshing like this, I may as well love it, haha. Although if it adds too much cultural reference, it may be slightly harder to enjoy as I'm not truly familiar with those.
Episode 3 was hilarious, especially towards the end.
Seriously this show is awesome and it also gives you info about Japan's folklore.
I can't wait for the next episode.
He dug for 6 hours, 6 hours just because he wanted him to fall. Hokutaku is a funny dude, that gamble was hilarious.

Hoozuki is indeed cool-headed, I loved the moment when he thrown his club. Being a demon is fun, I would love to work there, not with that Rabbit though . The world building is good in this manga.

Episode 05 is my favorite for now, I don't know which part I preferred to be honest. Hoozuki is really worthy of his tittle.
Seriuously that was just a rehearsal for the true festival? LOL
Hozuki is just the best. XD
Just hilarious. Hoozuki is easily the best male char of this fall. This show is getting better and better, I never thought I would like it that much. It's kinda funny that Beelzebub is voiced by Konishi, who voiced Oga in Beelzebub anime.

That photo. XD
Also when everyone on the train agreed with Hozuko about Maki's hat, was a priceless moment.
Anyway Hozuki's and Beelzebub's first encounter was hilarious, while the second one was epic due to the motto "someone who doesn't mind maid uniforms can't be a bad guy" LOL
And I too didn't mind that much.
Oh, so that's where Hakutaku wanted to go, I understand. Karauri is M and Hoozuki is definitely S, it's clear that he is the real boss of Hell.
"I am ninja. It's shugyou." I should remember that if I ever go to Japan.
I don't know what's more funny in this episode......Hozuki visiting the Mortal Hell or Hozuki "curing" Enma's backhache. XD
As always this anime doesn't disappoint me.
