In my quest for a job someone suggested childcare or babysitting, and I have to say the more I watch Beelzebub the more I put that idea in the “never in a million years” pile. Though I would save on travel expenses if I had a giant green demon parrot to fly me places…Nah, it’s still a bad idea.
So onto the next episode of Beelzebub. Oga has a dream he’s floating in the ocean and wakes up to find his dream is a reality. Basically, Beel will pee until he floods the city, in a sort of first stage of the apocalypse kind of deal.
While trying to figure out what to do, the gang finally decide to put some pants on Baby Beel. Its a special nappy that sends his pee to another dimension. Now there’s a sentance I never thought I’d say.
Baby Beel DOES NOT WANT
But the “Peebegone”is only temporary and will eventually flood over. So, after seeing an advert on TV for some super absorbant nappies Oga rushes to the store leaving his waifu, Furuichi, to clean up. He tries to hit on Hilda again but just ends up insulting her so she takes off, leaving Furuichi to chase after her like the poor reject he is.
They show up at the store Oga’s at just in time to be taken hostage by a group of robbers. Though these guys are not the most intimidating bunch. I mean, c’mon, their name is ORZ! Anyway, Beel seems to be more impressed with them than I am and Oga gets the idea that maybe these guys are bad enough to take Beel off his hands.
Sunday …. Monday… Happy Days!
Each of the group tells us a little about themselves, building up their evil deeds only to have a embarassingly funny conclusion. Beel takes a shine to leader though and in an attempt to get near him, plugs one of the funnels on his Peebegone. In a strange twist the leader, Ryuzaki, decides to adopt Beel.
But Oga’s having none of it. Taking back Baby Beel and punching the leader into the ceiling. Guess he likes the role of Demon Daddy more than he lets on. As the hostage crisis is wrapped up Hilda takes Oga and Beel to the ocean where his constant peeing won’t drown anyone.
Furuichi thinking he’s Shaft
James from Team Rocket’s really let himself go…
Props you you Pierrot, this episode could have been amazingly gross but you managed to make it only slightly uncomfortable. And -que heavenly choir- THE BABY HAS PANTS! Too bad it only lasted one episode and it looks like he’ll be back to feeling the breeze next time. Seriously, how hard is it to put a nappy on that kid? Beel’s reaction to the nappy was hilarious though, I’m surprised the amount of effort put into his expressions. Like whenever he sees the guns of the robbers his eyes light up and you can tell he likes it. They do a good job of giving a mute character like him a fun personality. His little gurgles are still adorable though.
There was only a couple of electricity jokes this time too. -cheers- Hopefully it will just slip into oblivion as we get more characters to play off of. I can’t say I’m a fan of the bodily function jokes either. Hilda got a really nice chance to shine this episode though, she’s funny in her own right unlike a lot of girls in these kinds of shows, and can add some nice dry humor to all the zanyness surrounding Oga and the Mustache Guy.
It was pretty much clear by this point that Oga wasn’t going to be able to get rid of Beel, (I mean, if he did we’d have no series, right?) so I didn’t have much hope when the plot device robbers showed up presenting the possibility of adopting Beel. I knew immediately why there were there and what was going to happen at the end but these guys managed to be quite entertaining despite that. It was a fun twist on having their evil deeds be hilariously nothing and not threatening in the slightest. The next episode seems to take a more serious (but hopefully still funny) turn as Hilda and Furuichi end up in some trouble with what looks to be our new baddie. But Oga looks to show up ready to kick some ass! Booya! Well, that’s Beelzebub 4, overall another funny episode but hopefully they’ll be less emphasis on piss in the future. Now I’m off to marathon Oofuri, since there’s just not enough yaoi fodder this season.
“He only takes a bite from the best part of the watermelon”…Truely he is evil incarnate!
