Review: Beelzebub ep 1

Plot: The story follows the "strongest juvenile delinquent", Oga Tatsumi, who is a first year in "Ishiyama High" the school for delinquents. The story starts as he is telling the story of how he found the baby to his best (and only?) friend Furuichi Takayuki. One day while fishing by the river (actually, taking revenge on people trying to kill him in his sleep), he sees a man floating down it. He pulls him to shore and it reveals a baby boy. This boy is the son of the demon king and he has been chosen as the one to raise it with the baby's maid Hilda. (credits to wiki)

It's quite a refreshing change from the usual genres where they just do fan-servicing or fighting. I see promise in this series, especially when there's quite a lot of light comedy scenes in it =) The baby is super cute, and the way Oga tries to keep him from crying is super duper funny! And the reason why is becasue when the baby cries, everyone around him will get shocked! It's hilarious when they failed to make the baby stop crying =D I'll like to see how Oga raises the baby to destroy humanity, even though I don't really understand why Oga would want to do that when he's a human himself. It doesn't make sense.

The story-telling by Oga is a must-listen. He refers to himself as a kind-hearted boy, and he split a guy into half to get the baby out! And he calls the guy that he split a big guy, and this big guy had floated down the river! WTH. ROFL. But the Oga reeks of the tsundere type =), which I like a lot!

Even though the whole series reeks of fanstasy, it's one of the better ones (and I don't really like fanstasy stuff), and I think I'll give it a shot.
