One of the more utterly delightful and fun series has found itself a new streaming home with Beelzebub now on the AsianCrush site proper. That means sixty episodes of the series now streaming for free with an ad-supported design. The show was picked up for home video release by Discotek Media previously and they’ve been bringing it to a couple of different streaming services since then. It’s a quirky as hell show, but one I can’t recommend enough for its humor and fun – and that it’s not like most other shows out there these days.
The show was directed by Norihiro Takamoto with Masahiro Yokotano doing the overall composition and many of the scripts alongside others. Yukiko Ban served as the chief animation director while Takeshi Yoshioka handled the character designs,
The original manga began in 2009 and completed in March of this year after 250 chapters compiled in 28 volumes.
Plot concept: The story follows the “strongest juvenile delinquent,” Tatsumi Oga, a first year at Ishiyama High, the school for delinquents. One day while sleeping next to a river, he sees a man floating down it. Tatsumi pulls him to shore, and the man splits in half revealing a baby boy. This boy is the son of the demon king, and Tatsumi has been chosen as the one to raise it with the baby’s demon maid, Hilda. The story follows his life with the child at the delinquent school.
