I just buy the Japanese volumes. Not all of them, but I started collecting them after volume 16. Mainly because I love omake. I don't even understand Japanse. But I think its nice to support the author, since we have the privilege of reading Beelzebub for free. Heck, I'd totally subscribe to Jump Alpha if they ran Beelzebub. I think it its a good mix of different things that American Jump readers would enjoy.
That being said,I read somewhere the chances of it getting licensed in English is almost nil. I just don't think Viz considers it popular enough (and Psyren was REALLY POPULAR in the English-speaking fandom that it worked in its favor, but its a rare example).
If I'm seeing this right, looks like Tamura dropped the theme of putting Oga up on every cover since last volume if it ever was one. (on the inside cover of volume 20, there's a little Oga noticing he's not on the cover). There is also Kanzaki flamenco panel in the book
Dat handsome Furuichi . That's funny. I always used to think that with the exception of the tissue arc, the two's friendship was pretty devoid of rivalry. I guess Tamura is trying to say when Furuichi finally does get serious, you will get a 強敵.

Anyone who got a copy of this?
kudof on tumblr posted the volume 20 cover and special limited edition poster from the digital copy of Beelzebub vol. 20. The colors look really good.

Volume 22 cover:
Nasubi looks really pretty. But I'm disappointed his more flamboyant style wasn't shown.
The cover of volume 23 of Beelzebub:

I really love this cover! Its been a while since Aoi's had a cover and she looks really cool on it. I love the strong use of green as well. Is that Oga's hair sticking up behind them?
Wow, I was not expecting such a badass cover for volume 24:
Its kind of proof at how popular Takamiya became though. I mean, the guy already has doujinshi drawn of him.
The last three Covers are the best so far from all Volumen. Special with Nasubi in Fron special one Character or at 23 with Taka and Oga in a Brawl. That are great.
Different from the Typical Covers but any Charachter on top that appears in the Volumen, like OP Covers.
I agree. I particularly like the shading in volume 24, it has all these grey tones to offset the red background. Its very appropriate for a raging fight. I can't wait to see the bigger cover!
