Beelzebub 4 – ORZ3: The Sliding Bow
Quick summary of Beelzebub in less than 100 words: Beelzebub is the son of the Demon Lord, who sent him to the mortal realm as he conveniently had no time to raise him himself. Sent to Earth via Alain Delon, the dimensional transfer demon, and accompanied by Hildegarde, the demon maid that takes care of Beelzebub, they found Tatsumi Oga, a candidate that’s suitably evil and menacing enough to be Beelzebub’s foster parent, in hope that Oga will raise Beelzebub in his suitable evil and menacing ways to become a great demon that will one day destroy the earth.
Aaaaand so, I have just conveniently skipped the first 3 episodes and covered for that with a 90-word summary. Go me. On to Episode 4! 😀
In this episode, it’s the Beelzebub urination season! Beelzebub will pee non-stop for 49 days and 49 nigh…i mean for about a day or so. Yeah.
Hildegarde managed to contain Beelzebub’s urine with a dimensional transfer diaper, its functionality not unlike that of Alain Delon. It’s effectiveness however, lasts only 3 hours, as there’s gotta be a flood somewhere even in another dimension. Oga has to buy diapers as contingencies, lest another flood ravages the land. It forms the basic premise of what’s to come next in the episode.
Oga and Beelzebub get held up at a supermarket by some group of robbers. Fail aplenty.
That pretty much sums up the single comedic scene that made me laugh in this episode, but boy was it epic.
The robbers got their asses handed to them by Beelzebub, who (possesses a fulgurous cry when agitated, electrifying anybody to toast) took them down with a single outburst.
The incident at the supermarket served the sole purpose of delivering the ORZ joke, and Beelzebub was brought out to sea to finish the rest of his…business.
As you can see, there’s not really much to talk about in Beelzebub, as most of the jokes end up with Beelzebub electrocuting Oga. I may blog about this when something interesting actually happens (like the one above), but I should be looking for greener pastures to get some blog-worthy material.
