I am sorry Teeba, for I don't like spamming and this is a rare feeling for me...
but DAMMIT!!! Toujo getting his ass handed to him by no other than Himekawa!?!
Sure it makes for interesting turn of events... but why is Toujo being treated like a 3rd rate character?! Is he not that popular in Japan as he is outside of it?
Again... Sorry Teeba!
so far, the kings crest has made characters get huge power boosts, kanzaki went from weak ass character to now one of the top dogs again, and made aoi take out the former leader and all of her followers without too much effort. The kings crest has made two characters take out large numbers of people that if they didn't have the crest, they would have lost horribly, but with himekawa, even with the crest he took a beating for the win, it makes toujou seem like the top tier HUMAN around, and he might not get a kings crest, he could just start training some more, or him and oga could fight it out, where if he loses he takes the crest
Well him losing to Furuichi was a bit more acceptable due to Furuichi having a contract (of sorts) with Jabberwock for obvious reasons.
So if it is spun in a similar manner that Himekawa has channeled power that equals that of Jabberwock or something... then fine.
But right now... NOT HAPPY!!
people give toujou a break hes human but theres no way toujou could win without upsetting the balance.
even aoi had to lose koma (though still kinda annoying )
The one and only popularity poll that Beelzebub had was 2 years ago, and in that the Toujo ranked 8th. So he's popular enough that he ranked in the top 10, but compared to the rest of the TKKH he's the least popular. So yeah, he doesn't have any kind of favorite character immunity that means he has to win all the time.
To me what makes a character fodderized is when they get defeated again and again, or when their fighting ability is made fun of regardless. For what its worth, Kanzaki and Himekawa were fodderized fairly quickly. Oga sent them flying at the beginning of the manga, and they barely held their ground when Oga and Toujo fought it out at Ishiyama High. Its only because Natsume was there that they were able to pull their weight. Since then Kanzaki and Himekawa have gone through tons of arcs where they've had to show their worth besides physical strength. And its only recently that Kanzaki has been able to regain his ability to look cool while fighting.
So far this hasn't happened with Toujo, but its come at a cost of Toujo being a little underdeveloped compared to the rest of the gang. While Toujo is definitely the most powerful and badass, second only to Oga, he's still very much a mystery. He's really aloof, and besides people he already knows he doesn't make friends easily. And hey, with that kind of personal strength he doesn't need to. But him losing for the second time in a row might actually be a good thing in the long run. It might make him open up and be more keen on being a team player rather than a complete loner. To be frank, it gives Toujo a personal conflict he has to deal with, which makes it more interesting to read about than him just one-punching his enemy and being done with it. And this applies to both comical and serious storytelling.
Teeba, hilda is still stuck in the demon world.so she cannot leave just of yet.she has to be cautious of all the six upstart because of the assumption they are spellmasters.
The dude with the tattoo similar to himekawa is probably taka because he appeared in the last page (top left corner).
Good to see Furuichi and the comedy back. And Oga being ignored .
Well you can look at it this way: Looks like Toujou is everyone's test to see if they have indeed exceeded human limits. Therefore, it makes Toujou the most impressive human . I'm actually pretty pleased Tamura is keeping to the formality that contracted demons (albeit even some subcontractors) are stronger than all humans. It at least gives us some base point on power levels from now on.
Looks like Himekawa is indeed willing to become someone's underling to attain new heights, even if it is temporary. As to why he's not Oga's, he either refuses to be under Oga specifically or wants some intel on the group and has to prove his 'loyalty' to them by becoming their retainer.
The guy on the phone is the angel demon's first retainer. The actual contractor is who? Taka?
you know Furuichi also a Taka too
one hell of a chapter wow!

Tojo is so strong considering he fought that bloody.
Do you think there will be a Tojo-Himekawa rematch?

Tojo defeated by others other than Oga and in the exception (Tissue Furuichi) is hard to accept no matter what the circumstances is.
It's like Tojo is not worthy of becoming Oga's rival.

Maybe that will happen!
Aoi, Kanzaki will face Taka, Furuichi will try to protect them
They will be defeated.
Oga then comes (from another fight)
Oga vs. Taka!
this is frigging retarded
toujou is getting owned in EVERY fight
he only ever won against fodder and even then it was offscrean
and he is supposed to be the strongest non contractor
while both director and aois granfather are clearly top dogs without using demon powers
i call bullshit
