It seems almost like it's going one for one so far on the gag/plot chapters.
Chapter 1 is mostly gag, Chapter 2 is a little more fighting-centric, Chapter 3 is gag again, chapter 4 continues the thread from chapter 2, etc.
The only real exception is this one, since it's a direct continuation from the last chapter.
Hmm... I guess chapter seven kills the idea that the higher-level/human demons are superhuman. Anyway, I'm looking forward to future chapters.
In a story where the Demon Lord is contemplating the end of the world with his buddies over video games and is persuaded by lazy procrastination, then we have a gag manga in our hands. Albeit able to hold a interesting plot and story, I rather not see this manga try at being in-depth after setting up the story in such a way.
I already love it the way it is.
i'm slowly losing interest in it, and not just because of my gag preference. Mainly it's because it's beginning to show limits to where it can be for now, and i liked the lack of metaphorical ceiling over it's head the first 5 chapters had.
goddamn chapter 8.
Oga has to be my favorite Jump protagonist in who knows how long.
MUSTACHED TRANSFER DEMON (Alaindelon) continues to be my favorite supporting character
my opinion on it keeps changing page by page. kinda glad i dropped it for that fact.
but as long as alain delon and furuichi feature extensively it'll have a solid place in my heart
If I were you, I would have more patience. This thing isn't generic, yeat it isn't awesome either. Let's say it's a decent read but I wouldn't see any reason to drop it. I really think this will be a mixed genre manga
i dropped it simply for the sake of my mental health, lightening my workload and going on a hiatus. i too think it's still a gag manga with action as part of it's medium. just too large each week to deal with when theres two groups doing each chapter a week anyway
Anyways, this last chapter was OK, but so far the story isn't very defined. Is it going to be episodic? Or plot-driven? At first it seemed to be Gintama or Sket Dance-like, but now I'm not so sure.
I'm thinking in the end it'll be plot-driven, gary. but not now. like, some 2 volumes worth of nonsense, and then it'll build up to include certain tasks, etc. like reborn or some other shounen...
And I just want to point out that both can go along. I don't understand what you mean with episodic but Mx0 was a manga that had a main plot. Though being plot driven, mx0 felt as being episodic (with its different short arcs and genre) ^^. I really tend to believe beelzebub is going to walk a similar (not the same) way. It has main plot but it will build on it thorugh short arcs (once with comedy, once with action, etc).
