Sorry, I've clearly missed this but what's wrong with "baby BL"?
It was because "BL" doesn't stand for anything. His name isn't two words that begin with B and L.
"Beel" or "Bel" seem fine. The thing is Beelzebub is supposed to be pronounced like "bell" in this series based on the katakana, despite being spelt "beel".
to me bell makes no sense. beru may be the way japanese pronounce it but it is clearly wrong since we know what is meant (the demon/deity Beelzebub or whatever it is from the middle east). BL is fine and given the reactions here I even prefer not to know the other meaning :P
yeah somehow i don't think boys love and beelzebub cross over in their fanbases enough that BL is problematic
i'm guessing i was right about the chick being a rival character, though i can't read japanese.
there's a chick other than Hildegarde?
Just so you guys know, I'm gonna be a little late with the translation this week, for various reasons. I'll try to get it out tonight, Saturday, but I might not until Sunday. Sorry
edit: Guess not lol. I should never doubt my ability to get it done on time >_>

Awesome, thanks for the tl yo. But, I don't get it, what do you mean we have to get an official 'ok' to use it in scans?
Basically, I had a drunken rage filled crap quality translation (except I wasn't drunk) which ticked the higher ups off, so I have to prove myself/get better. Which I don't mind at all, since I still don't feel like I deserve the title :P
All in all, it's to further your guys's enjoyment of the chapters, and to bolster my own skill. Who knows, had this happened at the beginning, there might not have been the legendary debate on Beelzebub's nickname lol.
Probably both, if a moderator/admin doesn't do it first
Awesome, since I'm done with the cleaning, I'll only need the translations so I can scanlate it. Anyways, I'll be looking forward to the official okay.
Can't believe someone made a release without the 'okay.' It makes everything you typed in the beginning pointless. *facepalm*
