Perhaps because of the lewdness and immorality that many find distasteful to even sub Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san OVA 4. Or maybe it was just forgotten along the way. Whatever the reason, I’m glad to have finally caught this latest OVA. Warning, though. Be prepared for some sick humour. Especially about a certain female anatomy that would usually send many straight guys crazy. You will never see it the same way as you did before. And if you really haven’t seen a real one before, I hope this won’t ‘scar’ you for the rest of your life. You’re saying that it is that bad? Well, why don’t you watch it and find out? Hehehehe…

Beware the vaginas…
Koutarou is forced to help Akutabe move to a new location for his agency due to the events at the end of the first season where the angels discovered his location. He thought he is being paid for his services. However this money is for him to buy fake grimoires to fool angels like the last time. He wants 100 of them by the end of the week. Yeah, how is it enough with only 5,000 Yen? Even the porn DVDs are a better bargain. Uh huh. 3 DVDs for that same price! Azazel becomes a smooth operator to convince him to buy it and back at the office as they’re eagerly start watching it, it is already as boring as f*ck because the guy is just talking instead of f*cking. And when the real deal of pulling down her panties is going to happen, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ANEMONE VAGINA???!!! Is this horror porn?! FREAKING TRAUMATIZED!!! Koutarou knows they’re screwed for. They’ve been trolled by this porn and Akutabe is going to kill them. Azazel of course blames only Koutarou that it was all his fault and escapes. To Koutarou’s horror, Akutabe might have been standing there watching them. Koutarou tries to say he found this porn but Gusion’s truth telling ways threaten to reveal the real deal. Koutarou thought he could order Gusion to eat Akutabe’s memories. Didn’t work. Failed big time. One bloody monkey on the window. Akutabe then reminds him. He did say he could do whatever he wants with the money. However if he doesn’t get his grimoires by the end of the week, you’re dead meat… Oh sh*t…

The next day as Sakuma accompanies Koutarou to his new school, he tries to ask her for help but she knows the sh*t he is in and like any other people, she doesn’t want to get involved and tells him to own up to his sh*t. They meet the principal who suspiciously looks like the one from his previous school. Clones? Twins? Whatever. She takes them tour around the school and there is this topless woman statue, Koutarou thought he could peek underneath the skirt but guess what he saw? ANEMONE VAGINA???!!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE???!!! Now the principal wants to show her vagina to him… Rose garden, she says? Don’t trust… The sculptor of the statue, Osamu Osanai turns out to be in the same class Koutarou is put in. He thought he was just some eager beaver student who loves to study but you don’t know how wrong you are. Because during PE class as the teacher talks about dicks and vaginas, Osanai keeps pestering to see the real deal and wants to call a real girl to show it to them! Is he that desperate? Oh yes he is because he goes into the girls’ class and requests the teacher to show it to him!!! Koutarou starts making his fake grimoires when he discovers a stack of notes in Osanai’s desk. You guessed it. His life is on the line. But as he tries to pay with the money at the store, the clerk notices it is counterfeit and calls the cop. Run!

Meanwhile, Osanai summons his raccoon familiar, Ose and wants him to continue using his copying ability. Seems Ose is sickened by the fact that Osanai always wants him to copy vaginas! Is he really that obsessed with it???!!! However as explained, Ose’s copying skills are only as good as the knowledge and memories of the contractor’s. Yup. This means…. ANEMONE VAGINA!!!!!!!! Has this kid never ever seen a real one?! Desperate, he puts a hidden camera in the toilet bowl of the girls’ toilet. Koutarou is spying on him. The previous night when he showed Sakuma the fake note, everyone discusses that Osanai might be a summoner and Ose could be the likely demon who is copying and making the counterfeit notes. But what fake money and anemone vaginas have to do in common is beyond their comprehension. Koutarou confronts Osanai but Azazel becomes a big bully harassing Ose to copy some porn. He is sent falling down to a bloody splatter by Osanai’s wind power. Koutarou has a request to have him copy 100 fake grimoires for him but he refuses. Why should he help others? He talks about Solomon’s Ring which is said to turn demons into weak/cute animal forms and make them obedient. Koutarou has no idea what he is talking about.

Koutarou won’t let this go yet and steals the hidden camera. When Osanai is about to watch some real vaginas from his home’s computer, suddenly the principal walks in and sits down… OMG!!! OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAFFLESIA VAGINA!!!!!!!! MY EYES!!! ARGH MY EYES!!!!!!! NOOOOO!!!!! INSTANT DEATH!!!!! SO HORRIBLE THAT THE COMPUTER MONITOR EXPLODED!!!!!! AAAAARRRRGGHHHHH!!!! It is obvious that Osanai never turned up in class for the next 3 days and when he does, he is like an old man zombie. The traumatic memories are still killing him right now!!! Koutarou has Gusion eat his memories to revert him to normal. Of course he wants the grimoire copies in exchange for that. Osanai won’t be fooled into doing it since he knows this was his doing. Gusion spits back his memories. Want to relive that horrible trauma again? And so Koutarou’s ass is safe as he managed to get 100 fake grimoires for Akutabe although that guy barely passes him for it (inside the grimoires are only written ‘penis’ – had enough of vaginas, eh?). Koutarou has one more last request to make: Be his friend. Both guys agree but in actual fact, they have the same ulterior motive to use the other. Ah yes, a start of a beautiful friendship… At least no vaginas…

Don’t Fall For The Wrong Hole!
As expected, this OVA lives up to the lewdness, nonsense and crazy perversion this series is infamous for. Fans and old time viewers will find this OVA ‘enjoyable’ with all that bizarre crap from bushy jungle armpit hair to the horrifying anemone vaginas. You’ll laugh and cringe all at the same time and even having your guts, brains and eyeballs explode in splattering fashion. This OVA has it all. Comedy, blood, fanservice, supernatural and horror all under one roof. I suppose this OVA gives Koutarou a pretty decent screen time as other regular characters like Sakuma, Akutabe and even Azazel have very limited screen time. Though, it is expected each time Azazel appears, it would be nothing good. Anything that comes out from his mouth is either porn or bullying. I remember seeing Osanai and Ose making their appearance in the first episode of the second season but nothing much more was explained about them nor do they appear anymore later on in that season. Therefore this fourth OVA is a nice bridge to see how Koutarou and Osanai come into contact and became ‘friends’. Not forgetting, this episode also serves as a ‘good lesson’ to always expect the unexpected. Don’t rush into something before fully being prepared for its consequences. Especially you vagina loves out there, don’t be too quick to pull down panties just to glimpse of that heavenly hole. Now that you know what is in store, be sure to make it safe first for viewing pleasure ;). Who’d know that vaginas can be this fearsome. I hope you don’t go looking for penis after this…

Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san Z

November 23, 2013

There’s always a little devil inside of us. Because we have this thing called conscious and don’t like to get our hands dirty, I suppose that is what summoned demons are for. To do the dirty job on our behalf or someone’s. After the devilishly hilarious and nonsensical first season, I never expected this series to have another so it is quite a welcoming treat to watch Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san Z. If you think demons are scary and frightening, just wait till you see the ones here. So cute, so dumb and so hilarious, it makes you wonder if demon is just the name of a race and nothing to do with the evil personality that we all know. It makes you wonder if we humans are the one being true demons especially a certain cold hearted but insanely powerful boss of a detective agency that houses these demons. They are the ones who are at his mercy. So really. Can they call themselves demons? The demons along with the female assistant go around doing their detective work that needs the use of some demonic touch (how else do you break up someone who is cheating on you?). If you enjoy the devilishly funny first season, you’ll enjoy this equally devilish sequel too. Guaranteed.

Episode 1
Remember how Moloch died so fast in the first season without making any decent appearance? Looks like he gets his own cute opening theme (for this episode only anyway). Turns out it is an anime of him and his fellow chicken and pig friends running away from the curry chef trying to make them into curry stew. As Koutarou points out, due to the popularity of the mascot and thus the anime adaptation, Moloch plushies are selling like hot cakes. Thanks to the demon raccoon named Ose (who is under contract of Koutarou’s genius classmate Osamu Osanai), his ability to copy things is making the plushies selling off the shelves. Also pointed out that the plushies are a hit with girls so Azazel tries to scout Ose to make a sex doll for him. I don’t think his pubic hair bribe would even do the trick! Disgusting! He is kicked out. Going back to hell, Azazel and Beelzebub see Moloch. He is not the Moloch as we know from before but his brother. They show him the plushie and he finds he has become a disgrace to his race. As narrated if an angel takes a grimoire away and the demon dies, he will never be reborn. But the grimoire may pop up somewhere in the human world. Moloch wants to make Akutabe pay for his life. He is not doing this for his brother but for his race. Azazel notes he is powerful but not enough against Akutabe. Moloch is arrogant and dismisses Azazel’s warning. Azazel talks to Beelzebub that talking to this muscle brain won’t do them any good but Beelzebub has an idea and will agree to lend Moloch his wisdom. When they return, Sakuma is happy that Moloch is back but the rest try to dismiss it as a plushie. Sakuma doesn’t seem convinced. Because Sakuma continues to fawn all over Moloch, Azazel sticks his fork up he ass! The punishment? Sakuma pounds his head as he heads straight down to the Earth’s core! Oh sh*t! Azazel has doubts in this plan because if Sakuma can figure Moloch out, how the hell is their plan for Moloch to be a doll work out with Akutabe then? Beelzebub says that he too will have an opening if they watch him 24/7. Speaking of that ‘devil’, he just returns. So badass this guy that all the other animals start acting restless in his presence.

Episode 2
Instantly, Akutabe can feel that something is wrong with this room! Like there is something new… Oh sh*t! And if anybody dares say his intuition is wrong like Azazel, he did not hesitate to fire his finger gun! Beelzebub must be panicking so hard that his brain is jammed up trying to come up with an excuse and prevent their cover from being blown (because if it does, their ass will be as good as dead too). If he doesn’t do anything, he’ll be dead in the next scene! The sound of a cat is heard and Beelzebub points out this must be the thing he sensed. Beelzebub in cat outfit? Akutabe throws him out of the window! Animal abuse! Like he cares! Although Azazel survives the fall due to his agility of a cat, he becomes road kill. Sakuma returns and advises Beelzebub to stay away from Akutabe because it is that time of the month when his mood goes totally dark and his senses sharpen. Beelzebub wants to take Moloch and retreat but is forced away by Sakuma. Azazel thought of giving his porn to Akutabe to relieve some steam but was thrown out of the window and become road kill. In the next room where Koutarou is packing his Moloch plushies, Beelzebub tries to think of a way to get them out before it’s too late but Azazel seems to try to wash his hands off this case and acts like he doesn’t want to get involved anymore. When Akutabe is asleep, Moloch thinks he let his guard down and starts to pounce on him. However he is whacked away with in a single swipe. Like as though he knew it was coming. Moloch starts to fear as he sees Akutabe’s deadly aura. Now do you know the true meaning of fear? He runs as Akutabe tries to catch him. He hides in the plushies room. Akutabe plays mind games with Moloch, telling him that a demon as vulnerable without his grimoire. Thinking Moloch is at the end of the plushie row (because he is shaking), Akutabe gives him a chance to give up now and will spare his life. Since there is no response, he throws the grimoire at him and soon he explodes! Guts everywhere! The real Moloch is actually hiding inside the closet and very terrified he had witnessed the true evil. Flashback 2 hours ago, when Koutarou and the rest went out for lunch, Azazel snuck in and dressed up in one of the plushies in hopes he could get lucky with a girl tomorrow. That’s when Akutabe came in. He couldn’t hear a word he says and the poor ventilation means he is sweating and can’t breathe. That’s when the grimoire hit him. As he picks up his pieces, he sees Moloch turned pale. So dreadful that he passes out. Not that tough anymore, huh? When Koutarou returns, he is devastated that all the plushies are dirty. He needs to deliver at least one tomorrow. Seeing the pale Moloch as clean, he ships this one out. Gone forever?

Episode 3
Koutarou has piles and is sent to see a doctor. However all the doctors that specializes in haemorrhoids recently started resigning. Rest assured, Koutarou is able to see Reika Kikukawa, the Master of Piles! Azazel is jealous that Koutarou gets to get his butt examined by a female doctor whose name sounds like a porn star! But Reika turns out to be a… Transvestite. Lost that excitement, eh? Koutarou refuses to have his butt stared by a transvestite but he assures he is a doctor first and wants to save lives. He doesn’t believe him and Beelzebub’s abilities to tell the truth reveals Reika’s true goal is to do ‘that’ with unsuspecting boys under the pretence of treatment! Reika restrains him and examines his ass. The diagnosis is bad. He must undergo operations in 3 days. I understand why Koutarou doesn’t want to and prefers to live with his piles. His chastity might be in danger with this transvestite around. He is made to stay and at the same time, a bald man, Nobuki Marukome with the worst piles ever is moved in as his roommate. It is rumoured that all the anal doctors who treated him gave up. He even refuses to undergo any operation. Koutarou is forced to listen to his talk on despair. He once worked in the Middle East disarming bombs left over by the war. There was a village kid called Tinpoi who looked so much like Koutarou. If he was alive, he’d be his age now. One day, they found a big bomb that would be big enough to raze the entire village. Though it was successfully disarmed, another big bomb went off in front of the villagers. It was the bomb of his ass! So that’s how his piles story came about?! Tinpoi and all the villagers laughed at him and he felt so ridiculed that he couldn’t believe in anything anymore. A person who disarms bombs has a weak mentality? Just then, his piles start acting up again and so big the explosion that the ceiling is covered with blood! Seeing the seriousness of this, Koutarou agrees Reika to operate on him but Marukome still won’t allow any operation done, still talking about the true despair of betrayal and is suspicious if Reika is a true doctor. Reika forces him to undergo operation so Marukome comments that today he will lose his title of Master of Piles today. As he is wheeled away, Koutarou’s butt experiences a huge bloody piles explosion. He then realizes Marukome is a demon summoner.

Episode 4
When Sakuma, Azazel and Beelzebub visit Koutarou, they find Reika had resigned right before the operation. He even quit being a transvestite! What happened? Koutarou is also in despair. Checking around, they see a pig punk demon next to Marukome. Azazel argues with Eurynome of Despair and both try to act tough. Azazel chickens out when Eurynome threatens to read his embarrassing school essay! WTF?! Marukome tells Eurynome to stop and explains this demon will not hesitate to steal someone’s life. His ability of despair robs people’s hopes. This is what happened to Koutarou and the rest of the people in this room. Marukome is doing this because he thinks it is better to die happy rather than to live a life filled with suffering and betrayal. Sakuma tells him off he has no right to rob other people’s happiness because of his own problem. Marukome challenges her if she can show him the beauty of this world and worth living, he will free everyone. Otherwise, she will lose her life. Guess what? Sakuma passes! Yeah. Nice move. She doesn’t want to die yet and doesn’t consider these people her friends. So why looks so disappointed, baldy? Azazel thinks he has a way to save him. That is, making him watch a porn video. Despite his healthy cock stand, he mentions this only brings empty delight. Satisfying your lust for the moment only to be brought back to solitude. So want to watch more? Thinking he is just lonely, Sakuma wonders if there was someone by his side to share his happiness and sadness. Marukome thinks back if he only had somebody like her then. Marukome’s eyes lit up thinking Sakuma may be her destined one but she instantly rejects him, making him fall into despair. Eurynome taunts her that if he despairs one more time, everyone will die. If what she said earlier is true, then prove herself to save him. A nurse walks in so Sakuma orders Azazel to make her fall in love with Marukome. Instantly she is all over him. So happy that he tells off Eurynome to stop and free everybody. Since he has found true love, he doesn’t need him anymore. Eurynome is not amused and won’t let him go but Marukome knocks him out with a book. And so everyone is freed and Koutarou’s piles got cured. When Marukome is out with the nurse, a burly guy confronts Marukome and beats him up. Blaming him for making Reika quitting and going home. Because Reika is his best partner! Oh sh*t! And since Marukome wants him to leave his woman alone, I guess there is only one thing left to take responsibility for this mess up. Yeah. He’s going to get screwed and his piles just recovered… Falling into the depths of despair once more…

Episode 5
Undine’s mother is sick and the doctor tells her she has not long to live. 300 more years… Yeah. That’s pretty short for a monster. Her last wish is for Undine to marry. I can see where this is going. Sakuma declines to go to a mixer with her friends Yumi and Maki. When she returns to the office, she sees Undine wanting to resign due to her mom’s condition. Akutabe agrees. And then Undine gets all riled up because he didn’t stop her and throws a fit. She is appalled men are dense, blah, blah, blah. I guess that’s why we’ll never understand women. Undine then hears Sakuma getting a call from her friends wanting her to come to the mixer. Initially Undine is jealous and threatens to kill Sakuma for trying to have fun (although she declined) but in actual fact she wants to go to the mixer. So Sakuma brings her and Undine can sure run her mouth. Her friends didn’t expect to accommodate an extra person. Undine uses her jealousy power on Yumi. Just then, Yumi sees her boyfriend with another woman (much uglier). It’s going to get ugly. Because of that, Yumi can’t join the mixer and thus Undine takes her place. An angel named Gagiel is disguising himself as a university student in order to hunt down demons. Because Hameoka and Yarimura think this geek is looking down on them, they nearly beat him up but when he mentions about the mixer they are going, he forces Gagiel to come along with them so he could be the butt of jokes. And so this is how both sides of the gender meet at the mixer. The guys see pig face Maki and troubled jealous Undine and think this is bad. Their ‘saviour’ is Sakuma because she’s the pretty looking one. Undine gets jealous since Sakuma hogs all the attention so she lies about Sakuma’s brutal past. The guys know they will be in deep sh*t if they date Undine because she starts talking how her goal is to find a guy who would support her and her mother, blah, blah, blah. Maki manages to get the attention of the perverted guys by just boing-boing her boobs. Undine in jealous mode again. She unleashes her power and sends Maki into depression that she wants to die now if nobody wants to date her. Then she bites her own tongue and collapses. Gagiel couldn’t believe he has witnessed Undine using her demonic powers and targets guys in mixers. He vows to purge her. But Undine thinks Gagiel’s fiery eyes are looking at her as a woman. What did she say about never wanting to fall in love again?

Episode 6
Gagiel thinks Undine’s summoner is nearby and it is Sakuma. He plans to hit on her and retrieve the grimoire. Can he do it on another time? Her friend is dying here. Because Sakuma accompanies Maki away to hospital, Gagiel lost his lead on the summoner and decides to get close to Undine to get to Sakuma. Gullible Undine agrees to go out with this geek on a date. Gagiel reports to God he has found a demon and vows to retrieve the grimoire. But the angels remind him of his rank, Baby. As the lowest angelic rank, there are strict limitations of interaction with the opposite sex and thus unsuitable for this mission. However God is interested to see how this virgin takes down the b*tch (OMG! God said that!) and approves of it. Who knows it might turn into some novelty porn that He probably is interested. Gagiel meets Sariel on the way out. Because of his success, he has been promoted to Cherry and the most he is allowed is touching and groping the opposite sex. Gagiel is motivated to rise to this rank without fail. Because Undine is trying to piss Akutabe off that she has a date (not that she will listen to him either), Akutabe orders Sakuma to keep an eye on her to prevent her from doing anything stupid. It’s her responsibility since she took her to the mixer. The date starts off badly. Gagiel is an hour late (he just woke up when Undine arrived). He tries to get on her good side for now and takes her out to eat. We see his bad habits of making her wait while he goes to the toilet, his zip open, tripping and talking about his mother. WTF. He thinks Undine is enjoying herself? She’s just holding it in because she thinks she can brainwash him later. When Gagiel thinks it is safe to ask her about Sakuma, he just pressed the wrong button. Undine becomes jealous thinking he only used her to get to Sakuma. Undine runs away and curses Sakuma and due to that, Sakuma becomes an old lady. Gagiel didn’t know the old hag is her. Sakuma wants him to go after Undine (for the sake of undoing the curse) but Gagiel does so not because of an old hag’s advice but she is the only lead to the grimoire. He catches and says the words that girls love to hear from a guy. Don’t go. I need you. Undine is smitten that she kisses him (disgusting) in the middle of the street. Suddenly he starts to sprout angel wings and a halo. Undine and Sakuma are shock to realize he is an angel. The sky then turns dark. God is not happy because he kissed (even though it wasn’t his fault). If Undine’s beating is not enough, God zaps him with his lightning. He’s dead. Though Undine mourns her love is an angel, she quickly gets over his death (such unstable emotions, eh?) and looks forward to the underworld matchmaking.

Episode 7
Sakuma won a prize to the Ryuujin hotspring. She befriends Mayu Hanasaki who is here on a company trip. They get freaked out when some ugly geek girl, Yoshiko Kobayashi snaps a shot of them to update her blog (it’s her purpose in life). Hanasaki tells this to her senior, Kensaku Nishimura and he wastes no time in smashing her PDA to teach her a lesson. Sakuma eats dinner with the rest of the guests that includes Hanasaki’s chief Sanpei Noro, a husband-wife pair Funakoshi and Nagisa, comedian duo Hajime and Shinichi (Detective Conan look-a-like?!), inspector Souji Hashiba, wanted criminal, Masakazu Katsura, inn hostess Ranko Edogawa. Ranko shows them the legend of Ryuujin Lake whereby the people sacrificed themselves enough to fill the lake with their blood to the Ryuujin God so their famine can end. However, the God looks so funny and they can’t help laugh. But as pointed out, those who laugh at it will suffer a curse. Everyone tries to hold back but it seems Ranko is trying to make them laugh while playing a funny song. Nishimura then tells her off to stop frightening people with such stupid lies and doesn’t believe in the curse. Late that night, Sakuma is awakened by a scream. Everyone sees Nishimura dead in his own pool of blood. Is this the curse? Ranko points out the killings will go on till the anger is allayed. Furthermore on this stormy night, the only access to the inn is cut off and everyone is trapped with the murderer. Hashiba introduces himself and warns he suspects everyone as the suspects until the culprit is found. Katsura who was bragging about killing instincts suddenly become afraid. Hashiba interrogates him but how come it’s just about the candies he stole?! What about the murder?! Don’t tell me he likes those candies. Comedians Hajime and Shinichi stand up (pun intended) and mention they saw someone suspicious. Then they act out a comedy play of a murder case like this. The play is so stupid (accusing each other as the culprit) that they just can’t stand it. This causes Sakuma to blow her top and tell off everyone the seriousness of this case. Someone died! Help won’t come! And we’re stuck with a murderer in the midst! Calm down. Hanasaki then realizes she has an idea who the culprit is.

Episode 8
Hanasaki points out the culprit as Kobayashi because she remembers she was bickering with Nishimura. Checking out her blog, it seems there is murderous intent. However Kobayashi claims innocent. Funakoshi and Nagisa reveal they are detectives and chase after Kobayashi. They corner her and due to the psychological pressure, she jumps off the cliff! Looking further in her blog, it seems she has an alibi. Sakuma reveals she works for a detective agency and would like to help out. Employee Yoshirou Inoue points out he saw Noro going to Hanasaki’s room, which is close to the murder scene. Though Noro denies, Azazel sense that this old guy and Hanasaki are hiding something. Then he realizes the connection between the duo. Because Sakuma laments if only Beelzebub was here to make everyone tell the truth, Azazel throws a fit and wants Sakuma to apologize if he is to help her out. Whatever. Because nobody can hear Azazel, Sakuma points out Noro as the culprit. Immediately Hashiba restrains him. Sakuma becomes embarrassed to say that Noro and Hanasaki are in a sexual relation. Funny part is how when Azazel notes nobody can escape from his carnal relationship sense (because he can see a pink string around them) as he is the demon of lust, he sees Ranko having pink strings everywhere! She’s done in the members of her troop, the cow and even the carrot???!!! WTF is this lady?! Noro wants proof of Sakuma’s accusation so she mentions if he remembers where he left his spectacles. Everyone rushes back to his room to see S&M toys. Noro admits he is in such a relationship with Hanasaki but has an alibi he didn’t kill Nishimura because he was tied up by her. Hanasaki changes into her true character into a sadistic woman and beats him up for revealing it. As everyone continues to ponder, suddenly Nishimura wakes up! Not a ghost. Before he could tell what happen, he realizes something and feigns he can’t remember it and believes it’s the curse. This guy? Azazel also realizes something on him. First he has Sakuma tell everyone to recreate the sequence of events leading up to this incident and let Nishimura soak in the hotspring again. After he comes out, Azazel makes him erect. That is one gigantic DICK, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!! After seeing his unusual stretched underwear, Azazel explains when Nishimura was coming back from the hotspring, he saw Noro’s room. He got aroused and an erection. Because the bath made his blood circulation better, his big dick means the erection caused all the blood to rush there and he passed out. Nishimura couldn’t take this embarrassment and trips, knocking his head on the statue. I guess that’s how the blood came about. In short, he passed out from anaemia after the bath. Kobayashi’s blog indicates she is saved and alive. Noro is worried that his wife would find out but Hanasaki after seeing Nishimura’s gigantic manhood, dumps Noro and sleeps with him. What a whore…

Episode 9
Akutabe is called in to investigate a card left by a thief that he will steal the Philosopher’s Stone at the museum. This is no ordinary thief because this pervert, 48 Faced Freak is an extreme exhibitionist despite also being a demon summoner! Look how he loves swinging his gigantic dick around?! Sakuma and Beelzebub go around trying to find the culprit and it looks like this is not an inside job as all the guards are clean. Suddenly we see 48 Faced Freak starts dancing and swinging his dick around Sakuma and singing his Chinese song! Why didn’t she realize it? Thanks to his demon, Sargatanas who is able to hide his presence. When Azazel is arguing with Beelzebub and Sakuma, he thought he saw some guardian angel (48 Faced Freak) popping up behind them before disappearing. This act is caught on camera as Akutabe calls Sakuma to get out of there. But it’s too late. She vanishes. She finds herself in some sort of perverted land as 48 Face Freak interrogates her. Tell the truth or feel the wrath of his dick… Oh, she lied once about Akutabe… Beelzebub tricked to follow of trail of porn magazines into a trap. 48 Faced Freak asks him about Akutabe and he gladly tells all as long as he has his porn. He will punish Sakuma for lying. Sakuma realizes he is not an ordinary summoner. He is about to kill Azazel with a grimoire when Akutabe kicks him away. While Azazel and Beelzebub are silly in their antics over porn, Akutabe gets serious in butchering this guy. But 48 Faced Freak is no pushover and challenges Akutabe. It feels like a battle manga as they both emit huge deadly aura. Since 48 Faced Freak just wants to show off his perversion, Azazel wants to stop that pervert. Who else better than to stop one? Seriously. Azazel uses his move called The End Of Son by using negative erotic power to reduce libido and releasing them that is stored in his body. Because he took too long, 48 faced Freak escapes in the nick of time via Sargatanas. Akutabe hears his voice who is going to do something funny to Sakuma. Since Akutabe has forgotten his grudge against him, 48 Faced Freak reminds him that he took something dear away from him.

Episode 10
When he was a good priest, there was this kind lady Maria whom the town loves. One night Akutabe showed up to let him see Maria’s true form. She’s a whore who sleeps with all the guys in town. At first he didn’t believe and thought the guys forced her into it for the money but Maria from her own mouth admits she’s a whore. That’s when his world broke apart, indulged in the temptations and vowed to make Akutabe taste the same pain. Akutabe remembers this clearly. After he left, he wanted to exorcise Maria’s demon: Azazel. Eh? So how is he in the picture? Let’s say he helped her manage the finance. So it’s his fault, eh? Despite the misplaced grudge, 48 Faced Freak still wants to do something funny to Sakuma. He is a pervert first before an avenger. Sakuma feels ticklish and since she is not lewd, he puts her out and will have her way with her then. Akutabe is cool. Because he punches and breaks through the next dimension where they are! Don’t even ask how he did that. But 48 Faced Freak soon collapses due to the effects of The End Of Son exploded. Now his dick is so tiny that you can’t see a thing! Akutabe leaves Sakuma and the demons to watch them. Azazel turns into a violent abusing officer. Looks who’s the tough guy now? It is revealed 48 Faced Freak was here to steal the grimoire and not the Philosopher’s Stone. Azazel’s The End Of Son’s effect also starts to kick in. He needs something perverted and Sakuma won’t let her guard down for a single second for his sake. He can die for all she cares, right? 48 Faced Freak feels sorry for him and allows him to read his porn. Azazel feels bad for him and thinks of lifting the curse but was thankfully stopped. Beelzebub reveals his true intention into tricking the dimwit to free him and escape. This earns Sakuma’s wrath that Azazel is a useless piece of sh*t and warns not to do anything. Feeling deceived, Azazel blasts him with another The End Of Son. However this is a wrong move. With so much magic inside his body, 48 Faced Freak’s dick becomes a monster! Taller than Tokyo Tower! He’s going on a rampage! What’s it feel like for a city to be smashed by someone’s dick? Even if Azazel seems pitiful, but Sakuma is obviously upset at this idiot. She warns him again not to do anything. Will he ever learn? Sakuma tries to convince 48 Faced Freak that the real Maria wouldn’t be happy to see him like this and points out the real Maria isn’t what he thinks. Till Azazel had to open his big mouth that Maria was a whore all along. The truth hurts. 48 Faced Freak goes crazier. Before he can smash the city and before Azazel can use The Final End Of Son, Beelzebub makes 48 Faced Freak has a bad stomach ache. So he is in a dilemma to whether poop or maintain his erection. The situation is brought under control so 48 Faced Freak will retreat for now but vows to steal the grimoire one day.

Episode 11
Sakuma thought Akutabe stole the grimoire from the museum but that place is too dangerous to be left there. He gives it to Sakuma and wants her to make a new contract. Meanwhile Azazel continues to sulk at his home. He is depressed ever since being called useless at the perverted incident. Not even mommy can help him so she brings Kyoko over. She is worried about him and reminds his promise to become the demon king. His negativity is so low that I think Kyoko’s slap sends him halfway around the world! I’m sure he doesn’t want to risk his life when she is in this killer mode so he agrees to fulfil that promise. But first he tells her how the guys at work are treating him and thus why he is not turning up. Yeah, being demon king is tough. Lots of enemies. Even America and Soviet Union. Kyoko wants to go talk to them but seeing how nasty this will get, Azazel returns to Akutabe’s office and the first thing he did was to profusely apologize. But Sakuma isn’t mad. Sure this is her? Even mommy and Kyoko are here to see things out, much to Azazel’s dismay. Azazel is touched by Sakuma’s kindness and can’t resist groping her. She knew this was coming and kicks him away. She introduces him to Incubus, a newly summoned demon whose powers is almost the same as Azazel. That’s why they had no trouble with work… Feeling more useless, eh? But Incubus seems to look up to Azazel as his senior greatly. Azazel changes his tune and becomes the boss to train this kid up. On their next field work whereby they’re supposed to break up a cheating husband with his mistress, Azazel shows how it’s done. Turns out after 2 hours, he’s just watching them in the love hotel! Then that guy has multiple partners and goes to sleep with her in her apartment. Again, Azazel moves into action but just watches them for another 2 hours! Can you not blame Sakuma for feeling mad? So she sends Incubus in this time and he gets things done by making them sleep and never to go sleep around with real woman anymore (because he prefers the woman of his dreams now. Literally). As narrated, his skill is temptation and those who fall under his curse lose their reason and give in to their temptation. Back at the office, Azazel’s mom and Kyoko can’t wait to hear the wonderful job he has done. They notice Sakuma giving Incubus a much grander sacrifice compared to Azazel’s little pathetic one. What is the meaning of this? They want an explanation. Azazel just eats the sacrifice from the floor like a sad pathetic useless demon. They can’t believe it and shriek in horror. That bad, huh? Welcome to reality. Strangely for once I feel bad for Azazel…

Episode 12
Though Azazel is depressed, Kyoko is there to give him some encouragement. So Azazel goes back to work but was made to clean the toilet bowl. I guess Sakuma thinks this is the best job for him now. She’s got Incubus, right? Because of that, Azazel tries to frame Incubus by pointing fingers at him that he stole Sakuma’s panties (the thief is so obvious) or even take away Koutarou’s hidden porn magazines and DVD collection (too obvious)! He even poos on Akutabe’s table! Better clean it before he com- oh, too late. Now he has to clean up his own blood. As the days pass, Azazel notices even his mother is getting well acquainted with Incubus to a point he suspects them of having an affair right in their home! It’s like Incubus is slowly taking away things from him because he even does Azazel’s share of the cleaning work! His world starts to break apart when Kyoko heard everything from Sakuma about him being a lousy worker. But she still hasn’t given up hope on him and wants to start over (even if it takes centuries!) to become a great demon. Azazel throws a tantrum. Few days later after he calmed down and returns to office, Incubus is nowhere. When Sakuma summons him for work, to their horror they see Incubus F*CKING Kyoko!!!!!!!!! That’s when Azazel snapped. He lost everything. After he runs out in the rain, Kyoko reveals to Sakuma that she was raped and had nothing really going with Incubus. It’s Incubus fault and not Kyoko who cheated on Azazel. When Kyoko was worried about Azazel not talking to her, Incubus was kind enough to listen to her woes. He tried to seduce her but to Kyoko, she only sees Azazel even if he is a useless pervert. Incubus knew that his tricks didn’t work and decided to rape Kyoko in front of Azazel just to break him. Incubus admits everything. He is a demon after all. He is confident Azazel is so broken nothing can fix him. Sakuma panics and doesn’t know what to do. She calls Akutabe and although she will find Azazel, she hopes he could be kind to him. She feels bad for being harsh and mistreating him. Isn’t that Azazel in front on Akutabe right now? Is he trying to jump off the bridge? Well, Akutabe shows his kindness by ignoring him. Then he further continues to ignore what he has to say when Azazel tries to get himself run over by the cars. I think Azazel is really dying to get Akutabe’s attention to hear him out! So once he is heard, Akutabe says he will cancel Sakuma and Incubus’ contract. Azazel is happy but that is just a what-if scenario. Akutabe chides him for depending on others when he is in trouble, what more on a human. He should be ashamed of himself. Is he really a demon? If he is so, he should take back what has been taken. If he can’t, just die. Shocking, no? I guess that’s Akutabe’s kindness for you. And Akutabe just tells Sakuma the truth about Azazel wanting to die and so he let him. Did he make matters worse? Is it really the end of Azazel as we know?

Episode 13
Sakuma and the demons find Azazel’s lifeless body on the street. Beelzebub fears he has entered into the Abyss, a mental state whereby demons suffer and enter when they cannot face reality anymore. It is said once they fall into it, they’ll never wake up again. Azazel is in the deep recess of his mind. He hears his inner voice talk to him but Azazel just happily goes crazy. What has he got to lose now? Till he stumbles into a room where this twin version of him is talking through the microphone. WTF?! Notice the Inception video on his table? Yeah. Mindf*ck.  Dark Azazel tells him most of his powers are sealed and could easily lose to a stray dog. He convinces him that Akutabe is at fault for sealing it and then expecting him to perform. The solution is to merge with him and become Super Azazel. But he refuses. Because with great power comes great responsibility. We’re not watching a superhero movie… Since the coward prefers to frolic in this sanctuary, Dark Azazel forces him to watch what is going on outside now. Sakuma and the rest are concerned about him but this only makes Azazel laugh at this drama. So he is shown another video whereby they drag his body back to the storeroom (because Akutabe doesn’t want his floor to be soiled) and they left him there. They discuss the need to take care of his body for the rest of his life and I suppose the person he wanted most, Sakuma immediately declines seeing she has a busy schedule. Don’t want to take responsibility, huh? Beelzebub suggests to let his body ‘return to the earth’ so his soul can go to heaven. Wait, seriously. A demon going to heaven? Seeing their indifference made Azazel mad. So mad that he powers up into some mad dog. He is going to take revenge on them and takes off Dark Azazel’s sex seal on his crotch. Azazel returns to reality as a fiery demon ready to bring hell to them. Yeah, they’re eating pizza and didn’t leave some for him. Dead demons don’t need to eat, right? Before he could unleash his power, Kyoko tries to convince him to stop. He learns she was raped and all and goes back down the Underworld to take his revenge on Incubus before coming back to settle their score. Later, it is revealed that this is a plan hatched by Kyoko and Incubus to get Azazel back on his feet. She calls him that super power Azazel is on his way to beat him up and to let him do so. Salamander heard it and wants to slice her. However she beats him out and cries rape. I guess to the unsuspected she does sound convincing. Kyoko notes she’ll be a demon for Azazel if she has to. Isn’t she already a demon? However Azazel never came back so Beelzebub returned and found him locked up in his room all depressed. After dragging him back up, it is known that when Azazel was on his way to beat up Incubus, he bumped into several weak demon punks and decided to beat them up for pissing him off. Guess what? He got beaten up instead! And all that confidence shattered once more. Kyoko assures to leave the rest to her so she goes to beat up Incubus for good. Azazel then becomes arrogant to tell Incubus off never to raise a hand on his woman or else she will beat him up. Look who’s talking? Azazel is back to his usual self but the rest are so appalled at what they witnessed, they just wished he was dead. So shocking to hear that, that Azazel falls into the Abyss once more and Dark Azazel is not happy this dude is back here again.

Sex, Blood & Guts…
Too hilarious! Before I knew it, the series had already ended! Can we have more episodes next time please? This is one of the few anime series whereby the sequel is as good if not better than its predecessor and it is a good thing that this second season doesn’t disappoint. Even though the plot is random and can be said divided into mini arcs of its own (each of them lasts about 2 episodes), nevertheless it is a very fun watch despite all the crude talking, profanity, sex jokes, ecchi-like themes, over the top violence and other vulgarities. In short, everything is crap! In a funny way, that is. The characters are horrible and not to be mistaken as role models because they have no good qualities whatsoever. But who cares about character development or progression when you can just laugh your ass off. That formula is what makes this show highly successful. So if you’re the kind who finds such things offensive and repulsive, maybe you should go watch Barney and Friends. Or even Sesame Street. Because all of us have that little devil in our heart and what better way than to watch this with no holds barred.

If you want to make all those disgusting violence and sex, might as well go all the way without holding back. And I think this is what this series has done quite perfectly well without such restrains. Although it still is considered ‘safer’ than many other controversial shows since it doesn’t insult any race or religion and no full frontal nudity. Everything was done in accordance and in the name of comedy and to make us laugh. No hard feelings whatsoever. It doesn’t worry whether or not such negative and loose morals would be a bad influence to society. It doesn’t care if it invokes the wrath of some religious or moral police officer. It doesn’t give a damn if it gets banned or censured that would affect DVD sales. Let everything go now and let’s see what comes next. After all, all those who are watching this can be said are ‘impure’, am I right?

Azazel is still the dumb perverted demon that never learns. At this rate, I am very sure he will never become demon king even if he has the looks in his true form. Instead of working hard, he prefers to frolic, fool around and get perverted as much as his can. It’s like it is his destiny to become a clown. Heck, his role is supposed to be for comic relief and whipping boy of the series. Notice how most of the bloody gut spilling violence ends up on him? Without his resurrection, it’s like as though he died many times over and over again. And he still never learns. If he fails to become a demon king, I guess he can fall back on being a comedian because I also observed the way he retorts and makes instant and spontaneous loud mouth come back lines makes it as though he is such a stand up comedian pro. Really. Kyoko might be more dangerous than Azazel and as seen if she really gets mad, she doesn’t need to turn green and big just to make Azazel shiver in his pants. It’s a good thing she is on Azazel’s side. Though, she would do whatever it takes for her beloved demon to achieve his goal. Anything. It’s pretty okay, right? She’s a demon, no? So anything goes. Like they say, behind every successful (demon) man is a woman but behind every failure is just Azazel himself. Haha!

Sakuma must have gotten used to how things worked now so she is not that surprised when Azazel springs into his perverted motion. She even throws a serious face to Azazel which probably says “I’ll kill you for good if you do something stupid this time”. Speaking of that part, I guess it was with mixed feelings when Azazel was at the lowest point of his life. Despite knowing that this idiot deserves what he gets, you can’t help feel pitiful for him because for once he wasn’t faking it. His depression is real. What does this proves? That demons have feelings too! So if you reprimand Azazel so many times like Sakuma, even that demon has his limits and will go crazy. But why won’t any demon do the same when it comes to Akutabe? Simple. He doesn’t give a shit and will not hesitate to kill you! Better be on your best behaviour in front of this guy whether you like it or not. Although he somewhat obliged Sakuma’s request to be nice to Azazel in the final arc, he is still the same in and out. Maybe it’s his tough love. I don’t feel he really gives a damn about Azazel. I mean he knows very well he is dealing with demons and if you give them an inch especially idiots like Azazel, they’ll swamp and take advantage of you. So ignoring him is already the best treatment Azazel could get then. At least he didn’t get his guts splattered everywhere and that is already considered very good and lucky if you’re dealing with him. So ironically despite being human, I would say Akutabe is the only one without feelings and could be the next demon king if he wants to. Heck, is he even human in the first place? I always suspect that there is more than meets the eye to this guy. Oh well. Some things are better left unknown.

By now, I think Moloch’s ‘death’ and the way he ‘exits’ the show must have become a running gag. It’s like he can never unleash his full potential and will meet his death one way or another. Although in this season he didn’t die, but getting delivered and sent away as a plushie is just like death itself. Yeah. That’s the last you’ll ever hear from him. You thought he was going to be a regular by appearing in the first couple of episodes but that is just about how much screen time he will get. Undine gets a little spotlight for this season too but I guess that is so much about it. It is freaking funny to see how she can just get jealous about everything due to her paranoia. Her mood swings are violent. One second she is against it and suddenly the next she is all for it. I feel Beelzebub plays a minor role in this series as compared to the first season. He didn’t get into much trouble and if I remember correctly, he didn’t get his guts spilled a single time by Akutabe here. Yeah. Azazel took the fall for everything.

Many of the characters in the previous season seem not to have made much appearance here. Take for instance, Salamander. He was practically missing for this entire season and I certainly would have written him off had he not made that appearance of searching for Azazel in the last couple of episodes. So where has he been? And I feel that his final appearance is so that he could take the fall for Kyoko’s false rape cry. Remember that Lucifer koala guy from the OVA? I thought he had some grudge to settle with Akutabe and would at least make a cameo. I guess it was not to be. Though Koutarou gets his fair share of appearance, it wasn’t the case for his monkey demon, Gusion. All you see him is just hanging around his master and nothing more. I also thought that with the introduction of Ose in the first episode, he might be a regular too but it seems he just appeared for that arc. I didn’t realize Eurynome has become part of Sakuma’s demons. I guess with Marukome not needing him any more (my condolences over his screwing), where else is this foul mouthed demon to go? So is it me or Akutabe’s office is multiplying in the number of demons working under him? I doubt Incubus would be going since it was just a plot to get dumb Azazel back. In no time, I speculate his office might become a refuge for all sorts of demons. Besides, what a better way to hide from the eyes of those heavenly creatures by hiding under a more sinister force?

God is also one weird character. It is a shame that we do not get to see more of His antics. Even more a let-down is that I was hoping to see some sort of showdown between God and Akutabe himself. I wanted to see if this guy have what it takes to stand up to demons since literally nothing in this world can stop him. Maybe next season? If that happens. The Almighty is such a crazy figure that it makes you wonder how can impure words like b*tch go through the mouth of the Lord? What about spending his time reading questionable magazines? If this is the ruler of the afterlife and creator of all life, it really smashes your all your holy and sacred perception. God. So fun. So sporting. So… Funny… Considering God is already a weirdo, I can imagine what the Demon King will be like (even if it isn’t Azazel). Heaven and hell are crazy places with crazy figures. You can’t tell between angels and demons anymore. Humans are screwed in life and death. There’s no escape, huh? Just like last season, another angel bites the dust due to technicalities. Since angels like Gagiel harbour perverted hopes too (that guy was lamenting how he wanted to have sex before God zapped the hell out of him from the face of this planet), it makes you wonder if they are pure in the first place. Sariel makes a cameo but that’s just about it too. Now that he is promoted, he gets to do slightly more perverted stuffs? Looks like it is a long way up the ladder if he is to get the green light for kinky sex. Maybe only God can do that.

With 48 Faced Freak, it proves that there is another human who is capable of standing up against or at least on par with Akutabe. In a way this shows that Akutabe still needs to keep his guard on and not merely seen as a demon bully in our eyes. Despite being the most perverted pervert of all perverts, 48 Faced Freak really has the skills and talent of becoming a demon summoner. How can a man of God suddenly fall like this? Being a demon is scary but being human is scarier. Which begs the question of, is there any more other demon summoners like him out there? If so, will there ever be some sort of a showdown with Akutabe? I’m sorry if I always talk about pitting people against him. He’s like my measuring stick of being the strongest of the strongest so if there is anyone who can really give him a run for his money, I’d love to see the outcome. Of course my bets are on Akutabe always.

The art and drawing still maintains like how it was in the first season. Some people are still looking horrible and ugly but that is mainly for the funny effect. Some look like they just pop out from some cartoon. Sometimes you want to cringe when you see these ugly people talk. Sometimes you want to laugh when you see such ugly people do things. Most of the time it’s rather both. Of course there are some good looking people around like Sakuma and Akutabe (cough, cough. Okay, so he looks pretty decent). Also in line with the bloody and gory theme like last season, there will be blood and body parts splattered everywhere and for viewers’ ‘safety’, some gory ones will be mosaic out. Violent and funny. Just like Itchy & Scratchy. The opening theme for the sequel is once more sung by Chihiro Yonekura. Entitled Revival, the rock outfit still has that demonic and mischievous feel in its tune and somewhat echoes first season’s Pandemic. Though, I still prefer Pandemic over this one.

So whether or not you are humans, demons or angels, this series proves that life is full of crap and sh*t. It doesn’t matter what kind of race or creature you are, because of life, you’ve been f*cked up with real sh*t. Oops. Forgive my dirty mouth since I somewhat got influenced by the flow and nature of this series. In short, everybody is just impure/devilish in a way but that is what makes us so interesting, no? Lesson learnt from this series: If you want a job done, do it yourself. Don’t send in an idiotic demon to do a man’s job. Since everybody has a little demon inside them, it’s okay once in a while to unleash that little devilish imp. What do I mean? You can watch this show without feeling any guilt while enjoying the sadistic evil humour that comes with it. Life is more enjoyable that way. Or it could be just sh*t…

Looks like it took another year for another OVA of Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san to come out. Was it worth the wait? Well, if it was as silly as before, I don’t mind. This is the third instalment of the OVA series and it takes place after the events at the end of the TV series. Ever since an incompetent angel discovered their hideout, Akutabe thinks it’s the best for them to move and find another place. After all, you don’t want angels and God to come knocking on your door again, right? Ironically, Earth is such a small place and yet the angels can’t find him… But that’s not the point. However we won’t see much packing and moving of things in this OVA either. The usual antics of the usual gang and the arrival of a new badass character. Ooohhh…

Lucifer Chapter
Akutabe tells Sakuma to pack up their stuff and move since the angels know their hideout. Back in the demon world, rumours are rife that Beelzebub got his ass kicked in the human world. Beelzebub gets a message from Sakuma about their office moving and will summon him in 5 minutes. He isn’t happy that he treats an elite of the demon world like this and will make her eat sh*t one day. He gets a visit from Lucifer, that fallen angel filled with so much pride that it makes you sick. Because Beelzebub continues to ignore him, he mocks and calls him all sorts of name. Then they transform into their monster form and start fighting each other. Fly versus dragon. Man, everything is getting destroyed! The mountain got destroyed by Lucifer’s blast and every living thing rotted by Beelzebub’s stinky breath. The duo are summoned into a magic circle by Sakuma. Phew. The demon world just being saved from certain destruction. In Akutabe’s office, Lucifer’s animal form is a koala. But he is still the cocky demon he is. Azazel looks up to that dude and even wants his autograph! Lucifer thinks Sakuma wants to sleep with him and gets whacked. They make Sakuma get some grass for Lucifer (I guess he’s a koala after all – hey wait! Don’t koalas eat Eucalyptus leaves?) and since Lucifer and Azazel had some, this means in return for the price of the sacrifice, now they have to get going and do the packing. However Lucifer isn’t going to do the job and asserts he never ate the grass! While Sakuma beats him up, Azazel shows the bag still filled with grass! Could it be true? So how? Sakuma stuffs all the grass into his mouth and force feed him! Lucifer still isn’t going to listen to Sakuma so he and the self-appointed disciple Azazel make a run for it. Akutabe happen to open the door and it slammed Azazel. What a bloody death.

Beelzebub relishes Lucifer is going to experience sh*t with this guy and introduces him to Akutabe who wants to know his ability. He continues the cocky koala he is and decides to play some music with his electric guitar. Then he realizes his fingers can’t reach and looking in the mirror, he saw himself as a koala. Well, he thinks he looks cool and so adorable that he’s afraid of his own potential! Akutabe gets rough with him and wants him to know where his grimoire is. Despite being an idiot, he knows he has a useful ability. Meanwhile we see a high profile woman, Tomiko Senba who has this eternal youth looks being the president of some company and attending high profile meetings. She is in love with Lucifer because this dude changed her life. Safe to say this is the person whom Lucifer has contracted with. Akutabe forces Lucifer to spill out the name of his contractor and though he isn’t going to tell, but because Azazel has been so fawning over him, I guess it gives him away about this Tomiko person who will summon him whenever he asks her to. Akutabe snatches the handphone and tries to look for Tomiko’s name. Lucifer is enraged and destroys the handphone with his mouth fireball. Because Azazel continues to be an annoying blabber mouth, Akutabe tosses the destroyed handphone at his face! It almost killed him! If Lucifer continues to act cocky, he can guarantee he will end up as that idiot. Lucifer is not fazed. In fact he gets even cockier and wants him to apologize on his knees. Add licking his feet to that. Beelzebub is appalled with his arrogance while Azazel continues to support Lucifer. In an instant, Akutabe lets loose some chop wave and Azazel’s head split open! OMG! Bloody! Sprinkler of hell! Note how small his brain was? Don’t mess with this guy!

Lucifer is about to return home but Akutabe drops the bookshelf on the magic circle to make him stay. Lucifer makes it clear he won’t make a contract with him ever so Beelzebub tells him to do it for the sake of his own good. Suddenly Azazel revives and jumps ship. Yeah, now he is siding the other side and all that act to support him was just hoping he’ll give in and change. Bullsh*t! Tomiko is in some meeting with some president (they’re exchanging foul words) when she gets a call from Lucifer. She immediately leaves and wants her entire schedule for the day to be cleared. Finally her beloved has called. Because of him who granted her eternal youth, she will do anything for him. Akutabe spots something behind Lucifer and wants it confiscated. It’s his handphone! Wasn’t it destroyed? Since Lucifer isn’t going to spill sh*t, Azazel becomes an interrogator-cum-abuser whacking the sh*t out of him for answers. But Azazel is so dumb that he doesn’t even realize he’s been taken for a ride. Yeah, how can Lucifer sent it to the workshop to repair when he’s with them all the while? And what about his ability to change to a different handphone model? Fell for that one didn’t he? Akutabe has had enough of horsing around but suddenly Lucifer is being summoned away by another magic circle. Seems Azazel’s fooling around has bought him time for him to contact his contractor before the handphone was first destroyed. Thanks Azazel. Now you’re going to get it. Did his mouth come off from Akutabe’s punch?! OMG! Discussing about his ability, Beelzebub thinks his pride based ability is apparently so strong that he can twist time itself and thus rewind that the broken handphone to a point before it was destroyed. Since he should’ve told them earlier, Akutabe punches him and I think his beak fell off! OMFG! Akutabe curses his luck and vows to make him his one day.

Lucifer is summoned to Tomiko’s side and continues his smart ass talk. However Tomiko doesn’t know who this koala is and tells him to shut his pie hole! Despite several persuasions that he is the real deal, Tomiko refuses to believe this sh*t koala is her beloved Lucifer. To make things worse, Lucifer starts wetting his pants! Seems Akutabe has cast a spell on him and right at the end, he wet the entire floor around him! Well, he thinks it’s his withdrawal symptoms for not getting those high quality leaves and needs them now! Tomiko isn’t convinced and tells off this filthy animal not to get cocky. Since it has come down to this, Lucifer removes her eternal beauty spell and lets her grow into an old wrinkled hag to rot and die! Go to hell you ingrate! Suddenly she believes him. Oh it’s you Lucifer. The real you. Haha. Beg all you want for him to cast the eternal youth spell on you. And in the end, Tomiko regains her youth and sucks up to the koala. Lucifer notes how Akutabe has f*cked with him and vows to get revenge on that guy some day. Lastly, Sakuma can’t stop laughing her ass off because Beelzebub and Azazel got their mouth switched! F*cking cute and funny!!!

Pride Comes Before A Fall!
It was hilarious as before thanks to Azazel’s fast yapping mouth that shoots off faster than the speed of light. Faster than his brains can think. Wait, does he actually use them? But this OVA doesn’t really resolves anything since the way it ended, looks like Akutabe and Lucifer have a score to settle with each other. Seems that there is another person that could stand up and match Akutabe instead of cowering in fear whenever that demon guy makes his presence. I’m not sure if there are going to be anymore OVAs after this (hope we don’t have to wait until next year to find out) but even if it does, I’m hoping to catch more of the silliness.

The opening credits animation seems misleading because it puts up a lot of other demon characters in their cute animal forms. Some of them really looking odd. However they don’t make their single appearance here except for Lucifer’s koala. Not even the old characters like that psycho fish lady and samurai lizard make theirs so in a way this OVA doesn’t make me feel satisfied in that sense. Maybe it’s just a prelude and teaser for more things to come? Provided if they do make another OVA or a second season. Sakuma wasn’t even prominent here and it felt she was just like part of the background. Heck, isn’t this is why this OVA is called Lucifer’s chapter? The bloodied and violent effects that happen on Azazel may be gory but if you look at it at a funny perspective, I’m sure you will be laughing instead of wanting to vomit. Besides, you can’t really kill a demon that easily but that doesn’t mean you can’t hurt them over and over again, right? And yeah, you should be warned of the slight foul language used. Actually, crude is more of the right word but then again, if you take it with a pinch of salt, you’ll find it funny and tickling your funny bones. They’re demons after all. Not polite angels.

I guess when you are so full of yourself, you’re just so full of yourself. So prideful and cocky that you’d think the world revolves around you. You can only afford that when you have the power to prove why you are on top and not let make people step on you. I guess Azazel won’t be even coming close to that even if he has a million lives or stayed Lucifer’s disciple for thousands of years. He’s not cut out to be that. That’s why he keeps getting summoned back and does all the hard labour. Or else, bear the brunt of it all. Cocky and stupid are two different things. Don’t ever combine them together. Or else… You saw for yourself didn’t you?

Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san

April 27, 2012

When you summon demons via black magic, you can only think of hideous and evil doings, right? Besides, why do people summon demons for in the first place? I suppose to get things done the way they want it seeing that we humans are powerless to do something ourselves. But what if you happen to summon the kind of demons that are rather ‘useless’ and to an annoying extent? All I know is that your life is going to be one hell of a ride. For better or worse. Usually more of the latter.

At first you might think that the 12 minutes per episode TV anime series, Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san might be one of those anime series that focuses on black magic, grimoires, demons and how humans use them for their nefarious ends. Especially the titular character Atsushi Azazel may be one heck of a super all-supreme powerful bad-ass demon. Once you watch this, you’ll find you’re way off mark. On the contrary, though this series may have those themes, it is actually very much comedic and you’ll be laughing at almost every second of the bizarre and humorous antics from the characters. Oh, did I mention it will be one bloody affair too?

Rinko Sakuma is a college student and the part time assistant of a detective agency run by Akutabe. This is no ordinary detective agency because this Akutabe guy is very knowledgeable about the occult and black magic stuff and summons demons to do his bidding on top of his detective work that are deemed difficult. If you think the summoned demons are going to throw their weight around this guy, take note that it is more of the other way round. It is Akutabe that controls them and rules over them with an iron fist! So who is the actual demon here? So as naive Sakuma goes about learning the powers of the demons, will she succumb to the dark side or will she keep her sanity in check and remain on the path of righteousness. More importantly, will she have enough money to pay for her college fees and pass her exams!

Episode 1
Akutabe has completed an investigation request by Mrs Fukuda about her husband’s infidelity. He has lots of prove for her to initiate a divorce and get large amount of compensation. However loudmouth Mrs Fukuda doesn’t just want it to end like that and wants to teach her lecherous husband a lesson. Plus, she doesn’t intend to divorce him. Yeah, I guess you know what this means by further ‘assistance’ from Akutabe. He takes Sakuma to a forbidden room since she has been working for 2 months and it’s time for her to take new responsibilities. Inside the dark room with lots of grimoires, he summons the demon Azazel who is the midst of having his early dinner. It’s only 4pm. First thing this little bastard did was to sexually harass Sakuma. Besides, this low class demon deals with lust which is his specialty. After giving him a pig leg as sacrifice and explaining the details of the task, Azazel promises to perform. Next day, Mrs Fukuda barges in with complaints that she smells like sh*t, causing her husband to run away instead. Akutabe summons Azazel again who is in the midst of sleeping. He steps on his face to wake him up and reminds him to do his job properly of breaking up Mr Fukuda and the other woman, not his wife. Akutabe abuses that piece of sh*t to drill into his head to do things right. He gives a Gundam leg as sacrifice. No pig leg, this would also do? Next day, Mrs Fukuda comes in to thank them because her boobs are freaking humongous!!! Believe me, it will never grow THIS BIG in this world. Yeah, her husband is back to her but Akutabe and Sakuma feel this is a mistake. Once again, they summon Azazel who is in the midst of F*CKING his girlfriend, Kyoko! Yeah, that demon doesn’t get any privacy at all. Akutabe warns him if he fails this time, he will be F*CKED UP instead. Kyoko tries to give encouragement to Azazel to kill the other woman but was told by Akutabe he has no guts to do it. Besides, it goes against his principles to kill. Kyoko starts scorning him but received a lightning blast. Azazel and Kyoko have a dramatic and tearful farewell as Akutabe sends that slut back. Once that is done, Azazel goes to sexually harass Sakuma. Yeah, he’s a demon alright. Sakuma tries explaining to Azazel about weakening Mr Fukuda’s tendency for adultery. Akutabe makes a deal with Azazel, if he pulls off this case he will cancel the contract between them. Yeah, Azazel formed a 300 year long contract with Akutabe. Oh sh*t! Does he live that long?! Soon, Mr Fukuda’s ‘little buddy’ became ‘useless’, he broke up with the other woman and soon got a divorce from his wife since he couldn’t satisfy her lust. Sakuma feels so sorry for Mr Fukuda for causing him to divorce so Akutabe tells her a demon’s power never brings happiness. Someone close to you will have to pay the price. As promised, Akutabe destroys his contract but suddenly cuts Sakuma’s finger to make a new contract with Azazel! Yeah, she is his new master from now on. Azazel is delighted with his new ‘freedom’ because he is going to sexually harass her every day…

Episode 2
Sakuma hasn’t been turning up for classes in college lately so her professor, Tadashi Uemura thinks she is screwing around. Actually it’s Azazel making a voiceover as part of his harassment. Note, other normal people can’t see demons so it’s safe for demons like him to hang around Sakuma. Later back at the agency, they see a programme in which Uemura, also a friendly, caring and kind vegetarian is pleading for the public’s help to find his lost dog. Akutabe feels he doesn’t like that guy. Sakuma thinks of helping him but Azazel saw through her scheme because she needs attendance credit points. Akutabe accepts it since he can’t turn down a client’s request and has something he wants to check out. He summons another demon, Yuuichi Beelzebub who is in the midst of doing his business. Beelzebub seems like a nice and polite penguin demon. Seems he and Beelzebub know each other as they’re from the same town. But due to their grade difference, they went on to different paths and only meet during class reunions. Guess who is the smart and stupid one? Akutabe wants Beelzebub to show his abilities in this trial period and will make a contract with him if he is useful. Guess who has to look after them? Sakuma and the demons are in town with only a photo of a dog. Like finding a needle in a haystack, eh? Oh wait. The dog is right in front of them! Demon’s luck? Sakuma starts chasing it for her class credits so Beelzebub uses his finest ability to make the dog poo! He calls that finest? Besides, he scoops up the poo to save it for later! Ugh! Back at the agency, Azazel must be feeling left out over Beelzebub’s success so Sakuma offers him a pig leg. Suddenly the dog lunges at Azazel and chews his face! Bloody! Beelzebub decides to have his snack now and puts the tupperware in the microwave! Oh, you know what will happen if he turns it on! Sakuma tries to prevent him while Beelzebub isn’t happy she is challenging his refined taste. Akutabe mocks Beelzebub that he eats sh*t and as Beelzebub is going to kill him, Akutabe sticks a broomstick in his face. Akutabe looks at the poo, the dog still chewing Azazel and understands what is going on. He asks Sakuma the kind of demon Beelzebub is. Beelzebub is actually a fly. That’s a lesson for her in judging things by their appearance. Akutabe has an important job only Azazel can do. Right before Uemura’s appearance on TV, Sakuma returns his dog to his delight. As the show starts with Uemura talking to the hosts, Akutabe orders Beelzebub to do his stuff. Uemura gets violent and physically abuses his dog in front of the camera! Akutabe explains this is Uemura’s real nature and that his real dog is with them (in Sakuma’s bag). The one with him was actually Azazel in disguise. Yeah, the only job he could do… Akutabe continues that Uemura has been forcing his dog to be a vegetarian. This is evident in the dog’s poo because faeces of vegetarians do not have a strong smell. Since dogs are carnivore, it will naturally want to chew on a piece of meat (that incident with Azazel) and ran away from home. He mocks the professor for preaching philanthropy but can’t even raise a dog. In the aftermath, the show is cancelled, Uemura receives lots of protests from animal rights and welfare and he disappeared from university. Back at the agency, Akutabe reveals Beelzebub’s true ability as divulgence. He can force a person to reveal his/her true nature. Excretion is part of it. Sakuma learns that nobody is perfect and everyone has a side they can’t show. Azazel jumps into Sakuma’s bosoms as excuse for consolation but she slams him into the wall. And that dog got adopted into a caring family.

Episode 3
The gang are reading reports of a fan stalking a celebrity model when another demon, a salamander named, erm, Salamander appears before them. Well, first thing he did was spit at Sakuma’s face. His master, the chubby Norio Okada wants them to find out about a certain woman he fell in love in a forbidden love. Yeah, sounds very fairytale-ish. That girl turns out to be a model, Hebi. Sakuma realizes he is that stalker! Because of Salamander’s imposing ways, he takes Sakuma’s thoughts and uses it against her. Sakuma suddenly sympathizes with Okada as Salamander reveals his ability as revolution. There is no belief or value he cannot overturn. Azazel and Beelzebub are so taken in that they want to become his students. Meanwhile Hebi and her manager see Akutabe and hire him to keep the stalker at bay. Akutabe returns to his office to see the sudden change in character of Sakuma and the demons. Teary Sakuma pleads to her boss to get Okada and Hebi to get married as desired by the fatty. Akutabe reveals he was hired by Hebi and is going to turn Okada in to the police. With Akutabe smashing Azazel with the magazine, Okada makes a run for it and dives out the window! Woah! Fat guy can run and jump! Beelzebub carries him away. With Sakuma taking Azazel away, Akutabe starts thinking about their altered values instead of change in character. He needs to find the grimoire to dispel the spell on them. He thought it would be hard to find but it seems it is in the hands of Salamander! Just like any other lizard, it loses its fake tail to escape. With the grimoire in his hands, Akutabe is amazed a beginner like Okada could use a grimoire. Later he summons another demon, Undine. But from the looks of it, this fish demon may be another idiot. Yeah, she’s like a woman desperate for love. So desperate that she fell into Akutabe’s ruse to form a contract with him. Must be feeling used and tossed aside, eh? But she loves his brutality and as explained, she has this penchant of falling for lousy guys each time she fails to get married. And when she climaxes, she transforms into the species that she falls in love with. In this case, a human. Akutabe lets her watch TV while he goes out. While watching a TV show on happily newlywed couples, Undine got so jealous of their happiness that she changes the beautiful wife into a burly caveman! Oh F*CK!!! Akutabe notes her ability is jealousy, the kind of power that drives away happiness and is going to use it against them.

Episode 4
Sakuma and her demons are in Okada’s place. His room is creepily filled with posters of Hebi. She is appalled he starts eating his snack instead of finding a job to support his to-be family. Okada’s reply is that Hebi is rich anyway and so he doesn’t have to work. Salamander gives Sakuma the lions of Africa as example. Females do all the work, right? Yeah, now Sakuma thinks NEET guys are cool. Then they get down to discussion on how to make Okada meet Hebi. But the problem is Akutabe will be with her. They think one of them should sneak in with him to easily locate her. Since the demons are too scared of Akutabe, I guess Sakuma will have to do the job. Sakuma returns to the agency with pretence that she has changed back (when she hasn’t). But she gets harassed by jealous Undine. Then Akutabe gets a call to meet Hebi as Sakuma relates this information to her comrades. The demons drag themselves to the scene though it is obvious their fear of seeing Akutabe is still there. Akutabe is in a car with Hebi and he starts saying how she is damn pretty. This irks Undine as she turns her eyelids into single instead of doubles. This pisses off Akutabe as he wants her to do more than that! Akutabe continues his praising for Hebi’s beauty as Sakuma waits outside the car. The demons arrive but I think they’re still panicking and fooling around. When Okada comes up to the car, he recognizes this is not Hebi. Yeah, who the heck is that fat ugly broad!!! Okada wants to give up but Salamander refuses to let him. That’s when Akutabe appears. Oh, it’s that evil aura… Beelzebub powers up by eating sh*t but was easily deflected by him! Then Akutabe throws an umbrella that stabs right through the mouths of the demons! Demon shish kebab anyone? Akutabe then apologizes to Undine and the latter suddenly forgives him! As explained, whenever Undine feels happy, her curses are lifted so Hebi is back to the beauty she once is. Then he kicks away Undine. Back to the same ol’ abuse, eh? Still clinging to him? Akutabe warns Okada that since he has dabbled with the grimoire, he will receive his punishment. As for the other demons, they’re tied to some torture device and Akutabe is going to settle some unfinished business with them. Holy sh*t! He’s got a chainsaw!!!

Episode 5
Sakuma notices Akutabe’s new lizard pet. Actually he is Okada and this is the punishment he received. He warns Sakuma to use the grimoire properly or else. Meanwhile some odd guy named Sariel is in the crowded train and he is noting everyone’s f*cked up attitude of not helping but ignoring a girl being molested. But he too doesn’t help her and gets off instead! So what the f*ck is he talking about justice and the teachings of God and all?! So the girl’s saviour is Sakuma who teaches that molester a lesson by using Beelzebub and unravel his true nature. Yeah, that police officer strips naked and confesses to his sins before being arrested. As revealed, Sariel is actually an angel and could feel a demon summoner close but couldn’t pinpoint the exact location. Angels do not save people but to bring proper order and justice to Earth. That’s why they can’t get involve when humans are doing something despicable among themselves. So much for believing in God, eh? That’s why all the war in the world just passed by without God’s intervention because angels have only been passively watching them. But if that balance is interfered by the presence of demons, then they have to get into the action. Angels versus demons? Sounds like a typical epic battle that stretches back to who knows when. Sakuma along with Azazel and Beelzebub are at a small advertising agency and the owner Fujisaki shows them and ugly mascot called Namaste for his curry. Each agency was supposed to submit their own mascot designs but it seemed another agency had come out with an identical mascot. He wants Sakuma to find out the spy. Calling all the staff and using Beelzebub to reveal their true nature, it seems she got more than she bargained for when all the staffs just badmouth how terrible Fujisaki is. There goes his reputation… Sakuma returns to Akutabe to request for a proper demon to solve this case since Beelzebub’s wasn’t useful. He gives her Moloch whose ability is tyranny. I don’t know how fearsome this cow demon is but Azazel and Beelzebub tremble in fear upon seeing him! Later meeting Fujisaki at the bar, he reveals how every woman in his agency started a battle royale death match. Yeah, he thought there were just Lover A and B. It seems there were C, D, E and F too! Yeah, it sure became one big mess. So back to business, Fujisaki explains his security is perfect in the sense that he made sure no data was leaked and any related documents properly shredded. Then Sakuma spots a Namaste drawing on the wine and shows it to him. Heck, the bar is filled of those drawings! As explained by the waitress, she drew that when he was drunk and got into a fight with the rival agency next to him. So there’s no spy to begin with? Beelzebub and Azazel try to calm Moloch down seeing that he didn’t had a chance to be useful. Sakuma tells him to behave so I’m not sure why he sticks his own horns into his own nose. But that’s not the end of it yet. Fujisaki won’t let Sakuma off easily seeing she exposed all his dirty relations and thinks he should get some ‘payment’ from her. Unfazed, she uses Beelzebub to make him have a terrible stomach ache. At that time, Sariel senses the use of demonic powers nearby.

Episode 6
Still oblivious to purse snatchers or suiciders, Sariel finds himself in front of a sleazy bar and some gay guy forces him in. Meanwhile Sakuma blackmails Fujisaki to pay up or else. Is it she’s drunk or is it she’s serious for real? Three million yen? Man, she’s getting good at this. Sariel is forced to watch a pathetic trio-men stage performance as a call girl sits next to him and chat. Sakuma and Fujisaki return to their seats as the former pleads for discount. Beelzebub suggests Sakuma conclude their discussion soon because if Moloch goes out of control, no one can stop him. Besides, he is eager to put his ability to use. As Fujisaki eats beef jerky, he mocks how much it sucks. Moloch’s anger builds up and finally blows his top! Before he could unleash his power, Fujisaki is thrilled with Moloch’s cuteness and thinks he’ll make a fine curry mascot! Trying to hide Moloch by referring to the grimoire, a bar staff confiscates it thinking it’s the karaoke catalogue but his boss tells him to give it back to her. During the struggle, the grimoire fell into Sariel’s hands. Realizing Sakuma as the summoner, he tells her he is taking this grimoire and disappears. Outside, the gang see him flying away to the heavens with angelic wings. Suddenly Moloch starts vanishing and the only thing left behind is his ring. Azazel and Beelzebub weep inconsolably. Sakuma thought demons don’t die but as she found out, once their grimoire is taken away to Heaven, a demon’s soul can no longer remain in this world. So yup. Moloch’s dead. Sakuma tells this to Akutabe but he had no reaction. She felt bad for Azazel and Beelzebub and realizes that even though they are demons, they still grief when their friends die. One day Sakuma thought she saw Moloch standing in the room. To her happiness, she goes to hug him but found out it was a prank by Azazel because this Moloch is just a blown up doll created by Fujisaki as his curry’s mascot. Worse, Beelzebub and Azazel return to their normal ways of fooling around. Like as though they never cared for Moloch in the first place. Oh, demons…

Episode 7
Undine is using a mandrake for her he-loves-me-he-loves-me-not. Yeah, hear the mandrake scream each time its leaf is plucked. Sakuma finds a kid in the office, Koutarou Douchin who doesn’t remember about his recent grandpa’s funeral. Seems his contracted monkey demon, Gusion ate his memories as it specializes in forgetfulness and eats human memories. Because Douchin is the grandson of an old acquaintance who owed Akutabe lots of money, he decides to put him to work and has Sakuma act as his guardian at school. Yeah, Douchin is being rude to her so she doesn’t want to do it. Undine’s monstrous parents come by and are worried their daughter isn’t married and has found the perfect proposal for her. But she is not happy because there is a certain guy she loves and defies them when Akutabe summons her. At first Undine was trying to act tough that he didn’t care for her. The moment he apologizes, she starts getting apologetic and that everything wasn’t his fault. Akutabe continues to abuse Undine who thinks she’s just a stand-in after he got rejected by that four-eyed whore. Akutabe is glad to send her back if she doesn’t want to do the babysitting job. Yeah, her blind love has her accepting it even if it’s lots of pain. Emotional and physical. Douchin and Undine are in the headmistress’ office as Douchin complains he should’ve been with that Sakuma babe. Undine threatens to feed him to the fishes if he steps out of line. They are waiting for Douchin’s homeroom teacher, Himoi to show up. Hmm… Looks like a handsome and nice guy. Must be so nice that the headmistress even hugs him upon entering. Yeah, so easygoing he allows it. Undine starts blushing and is in a dilemma when Himoi touches her hands. She thinks it’s a proposal? Undine thinks she has found her new love and if Akutabe is not going to reciprocate it, she’d rather be with this new guy who can. Because Himoi is such an easygoing person, he signs a contract with Undine without reading or understanding it. I don’t know if Himoi is trying to accommodate everyone because he agrees to say “I love you” to Undine. He’s even saying it without breaking a sweat. Douchin is like so duh over everything and accidentally breaks the vase. She becomes inconsolable because it was the vase Himoi bought for her. Seeing she won’t listen anymore, Douchin orders Gusion to eat her memories. Yeah, I guess she forget everything about Himoi, eh? See how full Gusion is with all those memories?

Episode 8
Himoi introduces Douchin to his class. Everybody is so ugly… He is more annoyed when Undine is going to stay next to him. Worse, Himoi allows her. Himoi is so popular with the girls and even the guys, that everyone forgave him for whatever he had done. I guess the only pretty girl in class which caught the attention of Douchin, also caught Undine’s attention. Yeah, she tries to strangle her! Then she turns her face into an old hag due to her jealousy as Himoi brings her to the infirmary. Undine continues to tail Himoi and each time a pretty woman comes up to him, she turns her into an ugly fag. Undine confronts Himoi to ask which is more important. She or his work. Work, says he. Undine snaps and turns the entire school into an Apocalyptic desecrated future with the students as the slave and the teachers the merciless slave drivers!!! Is this Mad Max?! Even the headmistress is a muscular tough ass b*tch!!! Douchin runs back to Akutabe for help but he says Himoi is at fault since he was the one who formed a contract with Undine. Speaking of which, she is watching the ‘beautiful’ scenery with Himoi on the school top. She mentions about him saying he loves her but he doesn’t remember. Undine snaps and notes it is over for them. Seeing he has denied those words, Himoi will have to pay the ultimate price of the grimoire. He turned into a fish. Douchin arrives too late as he sees Undine lamenting about her failed love and that she should’ve never fallen in love with this jerk. Douchin starts to remember that he may be the one at fault because when he ordered Gusion to eat the headmistress’ memories, he also ate Himoi’s. However he dismisses it and needs to find a way to return the school to normal (Gusion also at the fish). Douchin wises up from what he has learnt and cheers Undine up by saying she’s a fine woman. Okay, with her being all happy, she’s starting to annoy Douchin. He gets sneaky and lies about Akutabe getting mad upon learning she was with another guy. With the school returning to normal, Douchin orders Gusion to eat everyone’s memories and also add more fire to the fuel. He’s painting a lovely picture to Undine that Akutabe loves so much and the reason he abused her is that he was shy and just his love turned on in his head. With that, Undine constantly gets kicked away by furious Akutabe but doesn’t mind the abuse because she thinks it’s his form of love. Douchin must be loving it…

Episode 9
Sakuma is acting weird lately. She leaves her work as soon as she can. Beelzebub blames Azazel for sexually harassing her to a point she may just quit. They get this idea to tail her so Akutabe releases Beelzebub’s magical barrier for this occasion. Wow! He looks like a handsome prince! This is his actual form in the demon world. Yeah, every girl is going to swoon over him. As for Azazel, he’s just a poodle. They see Sakuma waiting at the university and meeting a hyper active otaku guy. He can’t be her boyfriend because she is maintaining a distance between them. Following them to a room filled with hardcore otakus, they see her put on a cosplay. Seems she resembles very much like the character in Strawberry Warrior, Ichigo Norahano! The otaku guy who is the club president starts snapping away like mad. Sakuma isn’t fond of doing this and flashback tells us all this happened a week ago. She found it hard to keep up with lecture due to her detective work and noted how this otaku guy took notes at lightning speed. Needing his notes badly, she agrees to do anything for it. At first I thought his notes were just fake scribbles but it seems it’s the real deal. Yeah, don’t look down on otakus… So there you have it. How Sakuma ended up in this odd position. Her pride on the line for those notes. Yeah, she’s really getting into her character (no matter how much she is trying to hold in her disgust). As she hops around chanting trademark lines from the series, she lands the final blow in the president’s head. Strawberry Strike! A cue that he has to live up to his end? Beelzebub and Azazel though appalled, left the scene thinking she’ll return to normal once her exams are over. As Sakuma changes, the rest tries to entice her into joining the club. I guess without her specs, she can’t see a damn thing so she didn’t notice everyone peeping at her changing! Though Sakuma asserts she has no interest in such a club, the president hands her a leaflet to at least attend a big event in 3 weeks. Sakuma inadvertently acts and talks like Strawberry Warrior back in the office. Akutabe is still upset she doesn’t do her job properly so the demons tell him about the Strawberry Warrior via internet. Akutabe doesn’t believe Sakuma is into that cosplay crap and warns the demons that if Sakuma leaves here, they should very well aware what will happen to them. So get her back!!!

Episode 10
Sakuma attends the Comiket with her fellow otakus as they are serving curry. Their booth is raking in the money since other people totally love the idea of the Strawberry Warrior serving them curry with ice cream topping. Yuck! Beelzebub and Azazel are also there and couldn’t stand her moe talking. They cut the queue to be a customer. After ordering, they slam the dish into her face! Sakuma washes up and realizes this handsome guy is Beelzebub. Yeah, they’ve seen all her embarrassing act. She pleads not to tell Akutabe but it seems they’re ordered by him to get her back. Sakuma breaks down thinking she could make more money this way instead of that crappy detective work when her otaku friend comes in. She screams for help but she got taken in by Beelzebub’s handsomeness instead. Yeah, she thought that was a fine cosplay. So much so she wants this prince to help them! He agrees. But look at that devilish sparkle in his eyes! The curry booth gets popular with the girls streaming in. The gang didn’t anticipate such a big crowd and need to get more curry ingredients. One of them opens the fridge to find a tupperware and mixes it. Oh dear. Do I think what this is? Meanwhile Sakuma is counting all the cash she could have her hands on (yeah, she’s turning into money face) when she hears a tear jerking story from another otaku comrade how they all have painful pasts. In this club, everyone can express themselves for the first time and is their only real home. She is glad she could meet everyone. Sakuma also gets emotional. Beelzebub takes a break but finds his snack in the fridge gone! Oh sh*t! Suddenly everyone starts collapsing!!! With them being wheeled into the ambulance, the police are going to take a statement from the curry booth. Suddenly Sakuma dashes away, not wanting to have anything to do with them. Haha! See all the stash of money hidden in her hat she dropped! Soon the club is disbanded, miraculously everyone who got poisoned lives and Sakuma returns to office, slightly bitter and embarrassed though still proclaiming it wasn’t her fault. Not as bitter as Beelzebub because he thinks he too is an innocent victim! Azazel hopes she has learnt her lesson and will not quit this agency. Akutabe tells her she can quit but Sakuma asserts that she won’t quit so Akutabe is relieved to hear that because he doesn’t want to resort to blackmail with pictures of her cosplay! The true demon! So thinking of quitting? And have a feast with the Strawberry Warrior theme song as the ending…

Episode 11
Seems pictures of Sakuma’s cosplay is uploaded on the internet. But that isn’t the real concern. Beelzebub’s true form was also in the picture. If angels see this and followed Sakuma here, what do you think would happen? But not to worry, Akutabe has put a strong barrier on the building. But you can never be too careful because some tramp-like angel is watching them from outside. He is Zeruel and loves mountains. He has climbed the captivating peaks of the world for the past 200 years for grimoires and recently realizes that there are no grimoires there! So he started surfing through the internet (porn sites?!) and saw the picture of Sakuma’s cosplay with Beelzebub. It was funny to see Zeruel proclaiming the gentle giant he is but he chews the innocent little flower like his lunch! Then a bunch of kids teased this hippie of wanting to increase his flower power but I guess he is too creepily happy for them to carry on. Zeruel steps into the office but is zapped by its barrier. Sakuma greets the landlady, Kanetomo at the door. She reminds them about their unpaid rent this month and is not going to let them off lightly. She smoothly enters the room and ransacks Sakuma’s snacks and wallet for payment. Yeah, Sakuma lost 3,000 Yen to her and she wants the balance to be paid by the end of the day as promised. Zeruel meets Kanetomo sweeping outside and wants her to go bring him a grimoire. However she starts beating up this tramp and tells him never to come back! An angel lost to an old hag? Back in his home in Heaven, while having dinner with his mom, she is politely reminding him about his job to obtain a grimoire and not to take the long way. That’s because she heard Sariel recovered one and got a big promotion. Suddenly Zeruel gets violent and beats up his mom, trashing the place and reminds her not to tell him how to do his job!!! WTF?! You call this an angel?! Zeruel needs to find a way to deal with that landlady since the deadline to hand in the grimoire is tomorrow. Sakuma’s plan to turn Kanetomo into a good-natured old lady has her summoning Salamander. However the lizard starts getting rude and starts ranting about women’s dominance. You know, he could’ve got into lots of trouble if the women rights group hear this. Then all the sexual innuendoes of teaching them to obedience of their social standing via doggy position but Azazel joins the fray by mentioning he likes Sakuma on top. So Salamander and Azazel get off-topic arguing with each other about women being the source of the world’s misery, climate change, calamity, employment instability, etc. Women rights group, where are you? Sakuma zaps them and it seems Salamander kinda likes the pain! He is going to cut his stomach for uttering those words but is stopped by Azazel. Sakuma thinks she should put on a little act to capture Kanetomo’s heart.

Episode 12
Sakuma goes to see Kanetomo and acts out a tear-jerking performance. But the old hag isn’t buying it. Even if Sakuma’s bad acting sucks big time like how she is seeing her own grandma in Kanetomo, the old lady is somewhat touched. Using this chance, Sakuma starts saying how she is a good person. When Kanetomo agrees and repeats those lines, Salamander takes those words and stuck it into her. Now she really turns into a good lady. She starts apologizing for mistreating her so Sakuma becomes the devil and orders her to return her money!!! With interest! Kids, don’t ever be like her. Instead of getting back thirty thousand, Kanetomo gives her 3 million Yen! Woah! Was she this loaded?! Sakuma’s conscious starts working as she couldn’t take the money even if Kanetomo is petting her cheeks with it to take them. In this case when you should have a devil and an angel on your shoulder to decide, heck, Sakuma has 3 demons to coax her into taking the money!!! Ultimately Sakuma’s good side wins over and couldn’t take it but Kanetomo still insists of giving it to her. How the hell does it end up like a boxing match? In the end, Sakuma runs away. Zeruel is outside trying to plan his next move when he sees Kanetomo. He is surprised of her change in character and orders her to get a grimoire. She agrees to help out. Meanwhile the demons are playing mahjong and as usual Beelzebub wins. Azazel makes Sakuma go to the convenience store to get some snacks and since the loser (Azazel) refuses to accompany her (because she can’t carry all those stuff they requested by herself), Beelzebub the gentleman will do so. Azazel uses this chance to shuffle the tiles to his advantage but luckily Salamander is there to keep an eye on the cheater. Once Sakuma and Beelzebub leave, Kanetomo goes into Akutabe’s office. Since Beelzebub and Salamander are busy fighting, they didn’t notice her slipping in. Besides, ordinary humans can’t see demons too. Inside the forbidden room, Kanetomo takes a grimoire belonging to Beelzebub as described by Zeruel. Speaking of that angel, he is being beaten up by Akutabe and being told to get his ass away from here. Yup, he doesn’t care if he’s a messenger of God. Kanetomo runs to protect Zeruel so Akutabe leaves and warns him an amateur like him can’t break his barrier. She also gives him the package containing the grimoire. Akutabe returns to his office and breaks up the silly fight. He tells them an angel was spying outside. However he has a bad feeling in his heart and goes to check his room just in case. True enough, he sees Beelzebub’s grimoire missing. Azazel becomes distraught because Beelzebub will die for real. Ironically during the mahjong game, he did tell that guy to die. So now it’s going to come true! Akutabe rushes down and wonders how the hell the angel got hold of the grimoire. His worst fears confirmed as Zeruel flies off to heaven with the grimoire proclaiming victory. Sakuma and Beelzebub are walking back from the convenience store when the latter suddenly disappears.

Episode 13
When Sakuma returns, she finds the demons crying and thought something happened. She thought Azazel was joking when she learns Beelzebub died and feels he may have just came back before her. However Akutabe who never jokes tells her what happened and so true tears start flowing from Sakuma’s eyes. Isn’t it deja vu again? Zeruel returns to his mom and relays the good news. She is going to make a feast as celebration but first Zeruel needs to return the grimoire. In the halls of God (looking somewhat like a shadowy character. No pun intended), the Lord starts making a penis figure with finger shadow as a joke! WTF?! WTF???!!! To laugh or not to laugh? Of course God says he can laugh at his dirty jokes if he finds it funny. Thinking Zeruel is fond of poop jokes, he makes one out of it!!!!!!!! WTF???!!! All his angels start thinking how funny He is and will try to popularize it in the human world. But God thinks they’re saying it because He said so and doesn’t think it’s necessary. He mentions he wants to meet someone funnier and loves those who please Him. Since Zeruel brought Him a grimoire, He loves him. God wants to see the grimoire he brought but when Zeruel takes it to show Him, I guess the Lord didn’t take this as a joke. What’s this 3 million Yen in his hand? Did he misplace the grimoire? Suddenly we see God’s eyes turning into demon-like and considering Zeruel has failed, he is going to face punishment as the deadline has passed. What happened? This. Kanetomo goes to see Sakuma and explain things. She hands her Beelzebub’s grimoire (Akutabe pissed upon knowing she’s the culprit). When Zeruel asked her to bring the grimoire, she couldn’t turn him down and sneaked into the room to get it. However as a good lady, she feels it’s not right to take things without permission. Then realizing the 3 million Yen Sakuma rejected, she slipped it into the package thinking this is what the homeless man needs and with this amount of money, he can get all the books he wants. So Sakuma’s good side saved the day, huh? But this means Beelzebub is still alive, right? But where? Sakuma and Azazel go out to search and they find him eating disgusting sh*t in the alley! Seems when he was walking back with Sakuma, he gave in to his demon instincts when he spotted a dog doing its business. Azazel starts mocking that sh*t eater and tells him to go die but Beelzebub snaps and charges towards them! Don’t want poo all over you, do ‘ya? They run but trip. Beelzebub inches closer as Sakuma reads a spell from his grimoire to make him explode. So did he die for good? Well, at least it’s raining sh*t over town. Meanwhile God has severed Zeruel’s wings, confiscates his halo and exiles him to the world of humans below. See what happens if you defy the Lord? Wondering of his future, he may live a quiet human life or curse Him and become a demon to oppose Him. He is fine either way as long He is entertained. Is this really the true face of God?! Is it a wonder why his angels suck up to Him and even deny if He asks if He is egocentric? Poor Zeruel’s mom still waiting for her son to show up for the feast.

Actually this OVA came out more than a year before the TV series hit the airwaves. In the demon world, we see Azazel and Moloch in their truly fearsome forms talking about work. Moloch shows him a ring from Marie Antoinette he received as a sacrifice for doing some high profile assassination job. Though it is said that to summon a demon, the sacrifice must be of substantial value to the summoner. Azazel envies Moloch getting such cool sacrifices and all he got was just pig legs and Gundam legs. Suddenly he is being summoned by Sakuma. Preparing himself for the job, he is disheartened that she summoned him as practice! Yeah, he can go back now. He gets tough with her so he makes him wash windows as his job. Haha. Should’ve shut up. Sakuma thinks of summoning Beelzebub as practice and follows the instructions. However when her summoning fails, she notices a different symbol and realizes she has summoned Moloch. Moloch realized he has turned into a cute cow form in this world! As Azazel explains, due to Akutabe’s anti-demon barrier, they’ll end up like cute pathetic-looking creatures. Moloch plans to kill Akutabe but first jabs Sakuma’s butt to demand for his sacrifice. She makes him a curry dish but he slaps her and throws the dish on the floor. As punishment, he turns her into a cow! See her grow extra pair of boobs as the demons sing to Old McDonald’s Farm tune! Poor Sakuma crying and apologizing on all fours! Their happy hour is interrupted when Akutabe returns. Azazel quickly pins the blame all on Moloch. Akutabe sees the curry on the floor and orders Moloch to eat it or he’ll kill him! Moloch starts shivering in fear upon knowing how scary he is. He obeys and eats the curry, returning Sakuma back to her normal self. Then Moloch realizes it is beef curry he is eating! Oh man. It’s like eating your own kind but Akutabe forces him to finish it all! In the end, Moloch is reduced to tears and Azazel had to console that poor cow back to the demon realm! Akutabe tells Sakuma that she’s lucky he was here. A little longer and something irrevocable might have happened. He reminds her to pay full attention to the grimoires she reads next time. Let this be a lesson.

This one comes out after the TV series ended and lasts longer. 25 minutes long. Taking place after the fourth episode, Azazel tries to cheer Sakuma up with his sexual harassment jokes. She is not amused and warns she is learning a spell that will cause him pain. Not heeding, she invokes the spell that brings ultimate pain to his crotch. Ouch! Since Akutabe is leaving on a business trip for 3 days, he needs Sakuma to take on a job during his absence. She is reluctant at first till she realizes the thick envelope of money as reward he will give. Wow. She’s so motivated and eager to get the job done and dragging Azazel along. They meet the client, Saori who wants something done about her boyfriend, Seiya. Azazel can’t help mock her sh*t-like hairstyle… Seiya works in a male host club and seeing he wants to be number one, he doesn’t give a damn about Saori and will dump her when he achieves that. To Sakuma’s surprise, Seiya can see demons even if he’s not a demon user. Something about God’s gift to those who can see demons as they lack some human trait? Sakuma denies it because she thinks she’s normal unlike all the demon users she has met. Why is she asking Azazel for assurance? Anyway from the talk, Azazel realizes he is a moronic gigolo. Stupid as he is. From orders by Sakuma, Azazel induces free-f*cking and has all the women flocking to f*ck Seiya!!! Because Azazel has a proposition for him, he brings Seiya back to Akutabe’s forbidden room and wants to make a deal with him. If he signs a contract with him, he can get all the ladies he wants. Of course Azazel’s ulterior motive is to get a harem for himself. Seiya needs to take Azazel’s grimoire from Sakuma. Demons can’t touch other grimoire or else they’ll end up being in a ‘twisted’ position. I guess dumb Seiya did try that on Azazel. Azazel feigns sickness so that Seiya can still the grimoire from her hands as both the perpetrators run away. Sakuma realizes she’s in sh*t and has no choice but to summon Beelzebub for help. Seems that demon is acting cocky and rude just because Akutabe isn’t around. She forces half-hearted Sakuma to beg for his help if she wants it so badly. We learn when a human loses a grimoire, he/she loses their will to maintain contract with the demon. Not only he/she will be heavily penalized, they’ll never be able to contract a demon again. Of course Sakuma isn’t going to become a cow again but soon it hit her. If she undergoes this punishment, her contract with Beelzebub will be terminated as well. Nothing wrong, right? Till Beelzebub he will be forced to be Akutabe’s demon again! No way! Yeah, better help her get that grimoire back. In addition, if the thief holds the grimoire for more than 48 hours, that thief becomes the new master. But if the demon returns to his original master within that time frame, there will be no repercussions. The duo go back to the host club but learnt he has quit his job. Using Beelzebub’s forced exposure, they learn he got transferred to the finest host club where all elites go.

Seiya is scoring with the ladies in the new host club and Azazel too having his mini harem. In no time all the women of the world will be under his empire. He sees Sakuma and Beelzebub at the host club and expected them anyway. Seiya goes to host Sakuma and he is still a moron. Sakuma seems pretty serious and she’s not acting! She shows him the lizard. The punishment he’ll get if he summons a demon half-assed. Making him reveal the grimoire, which is just under his shirt, Seiya isn’t going to give it to her and runs away. They chase but all the ladies block their path. King Azazel appears and tells them he is holding the true power. The power of women! But Beelzebub begs to differ and uses his stomach ache power on every woman. Yeah, see them rush and fight for the toilet! Suddenly Azazel apologizes and promises to be a good demon. What a dramatic u-turn! However upon realizing Sakuma is sleeping (standing?!) due to the drink she had, Azazel changes again and with Seiya, ties her and Beelzebub up. Beelzebub tries to worm his way out by wanting to join forces with Azazel and serve under his rule but Azazel is going to send him back to Akutabe anyway. Sakuma seems pretty confident because she knows they’re going to get punishment from Akutabe and will cry like babies! Suddenly Akutabe comes in! Azazel panics! Oh wait, it’s just somebody who looks like him. Phew. Haha. But he panicked, right? Azazel and Seiya continue to have fun as the former realizes the latter being annoying and dumb but at least he is easy to manipulate. Seiya feels the need to go to the toilet (man, there are lots of women in here too!). He realizes there is no tissue paper left so how does he wipe his butt? With a couple of pages from the grimoire! Azazel is horrified that dumbass desecrated the grimoire and suddenly Seiya turns into a praying mantis! With that all the ladies are free from the spell and leave the building. Azazel gets desperate for any one of them to make a contract with him but none are listening. He will offer them anything and it seems one took up the offer: Sakuma. Oh dear. She how much sweat he is excreting? He knows he is in sh*t. Very deep sh*t. Since being goody-goody won’t work, he is resolved to take Sakuma’s punishment. I mean, how bad can it be? Even if it does hurt, all he needs to do is endure it. Then he realized her chanting is somewhat long. Oh sh*t. What kind of spell is she reciting? The kind that explodes him to pieces! OH SH************T!!! Beelzebub saw the terrifying power of Sakuma and I think he’s starting to respect and not play around with this woman. Back in the office, Azazel is still alive albeit he is like Frankenstein because his skin is being pieced back together like a jigsaw puzzle. Sakuma’s body is aching all over due to tremendous spell she used. Flipping through Azazel’s grimoire, she finds the torn pages back to normal and promises to take good care of the grimoire. She plans to tell Akutabe about the incident. Azazel pleads to let it slide but Beelzebub sides with Sakuma. But she too is going to tell on his betrayal too. No mercy! Real sh*t is going to happen…

Baka Shimasu Yo, Azazel-san
I have to say that this series is very enjoyable because I was laughing out loud at all the funny and silly moments, no matter how absurd it was. To think that demons were this useful and useless at the same time, it really makes you feel that you don’t need to fear them. Well, at least for the demons in this series. I’m not sure if it’s the cutesy looking form they have become that makes them less menacing but from the antics that we have so far seen, it is safe to say that if you do your homework a little bit, you can actually have full control over them, ordering them to do whatever you want.

The best and coolest character of the series has got to be Akutabe. This serious, no nonsense guy is someone you don’t want to mess with and I’m pretty sure he is the only character in the series which doesn’t do anything that makes him end up looking like a fool. You could say that he is a real demon. If not perhaps the Demon King himself! I mean, he’s not even afraid of angels and I think if he is confronted with God, I think he can be on par with Almighty’s power and stand up to Him. Speaking of God, it is amusing to see that the Lord has a different and lighter side. But if you make Him mad, you really will receive your punishment. I’m just really curious who He is and if there is going to be another season produced, I’m hoping that they will shed more light on this and maybe an ultimate showdown between devils and angels. I’m thinking, if there is a Heaven, then there must be Hell too, right? And with these kind of hopeless demons we’ve seen so far, I’m starting to think that Hell isn’t such a scary place after all. Unless Hell has an equally ferocious and powerful Demon King, Hell will be really screwed if there is to be a Holy War. And yeah, it seems harsh that angels don’t really help us humans if they deem demons do not have a part in it. No wonder crime is flourishing. That’s why humans are self destructing. So what happened to that Sariel guy? He got promoted for bringing back a grimoire, so? Then we never hear of him again. Zeruel procrastinated and paid the ultimate price. Honestly, he should have checked the package first before even leaving his house to see God. So he deserved what he got. Another point to ponder. If angels have been searching for grimoires for ages in this small planet, shouldn’t they have retrieved them all? Shouldn’t God the omniscient know all its location? Unless they don’t have enough angels to do the job or either that some angels like Zeruel is slacking in their job. Shouldn’t God know about that too?

As for Sakuma, clearly her character has somewhat changed during her course of part time job at Akutabe’s agency. From someone who would feel guilty about causing grief to others, she slowly learns to use the grimoire and get the better of the demons she is currently contracted with. At this rate, she can be another demon only second to Akutabe. Of course her main motivation is money. Seeing hard cold cash would just instantly get her to complete any job. Yeah, money is the root of evil. However she hasn’t totally lost her humanity to the dark side as demonstrated by the last bit with Kanetomo. I’m sure she can make turn into a full-fledge demon summoner in the future if she properly does her job. That way she won’t end up turning into some animal. Just thinking about Himoi’s carefree case. I thought there was something more to it but it seems he was just a lenient anything-goes guy till the end that got him punished. I guess he wouldn’t know what hit him even when he turned into a fish.

Even if this series has Azazel’s name in it, I feel he really didn’t stand out much as the titular character. I mean he does hog the spotlight but his role is somewhat like a comic relief, making sexual harassing jokes, getting beaten up (and bloody too) and breaking the fourth wall about not having enough screen time appearance or about his bloodied and mangled disposition just as the series is starting. After all, a demon that specializes in lust, what else more can he really do, right? Beelzebub may seem polite at first due to his family lineage but he too becomes berserk at times. This is evident when you see that crazy expression on his face. In this mode, sometimes Azazel bears the brunt of his slicing, gets decapitated. But you know, demons can’t really die this way. I thought Moloch was going to be another addition to this bunch but sadly his character was killed off in the TV series (I felt it was on purpose) without him demonstrating his tyranny power. So he really died, eh? Salamander may look tough but he’s just as idiotic as the rest if you show him who is boss. Don’t get intimidated by his words, sword threats and spit. Just be careful of what you say because it can be used against you ;). Undine is another funny demon. She’s really desperate for love especially now that she has become a masochist for Akutabe’s love. I was hoping she would make some sort of appearance at the end but seeing her nature and getting easily jealous, I guess that’s why Akutabe didn’t summon her. I mean, you don’t summon a demon if you don’t need the demon to do a job. But why Azazel and Beelzebub are hanging out at the agency as though it’s like their second home? Hey, what happened to Kyoko? That demon girl Azazel was f*cking? Haven’t heard of her since.

Apart for a handful of characters, every other character is drawn in an ugly way. Yes. Those thick lips, those un-pretty eyes, those moronic facial expressions, those armpit hair sticking out. It’s such a turn off that they not only look hideous but so much so hilarious. I don’t know whether to laugh or to feel disgusted. So horrible their looks that I may start to think that they may be aliens or demons themselves. I know, humans are ugly creatures by nature and I think that’s what they’re trying to convey here through their ugly looks too. As mentioned, the comedy factor is absurd and nonsensical. But if you can’t stand blood, then it’s better you don’t watch this series because there’s going to be lots of them gushing and spewing out like a water fountain. Although it serves as part of the humour but things can get really bloody. Don’t forget there are body parts exploding here and there too. Then there is this excretion and secretion jokes too. We all know Beelzebub loves eating poo, don’t we? Even if this is mosaic out, so have you lost your appetite yet? And there is one whereby Azazel and Beelzebub were so afraid that their pee could make a mini rainbow! Funny or disgusting, you tell me.

Rina Satou was recognizable as Sakuma because there were certain times her expression sounded closely similar to To Aru Kagaku No Railgun’s Misaka or Amagami SS’s Kaoru. Masaya Onosaka as Azazel also did a splendid job in making that demon a loudmouth, selfish, lustful but comical idiot. I guess doing some idiotic character roles like Vash in Trigun, Ah-kun in Moetan and Isaac in Baccano made him suitable for this job. Hiroshi Kamiya as Beelzebub was also equally good in making the character flipping between polite and crazy. This is the guy who voiced Nozomu in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Who could forget Yu Kobayashi’s crazy trademark voice as Undine? I certainly see nobody else who could voice that zany fish. Roles like this should make use of her powerful crazy voice like how she has demonstrated in Gintama’s Ayame and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei’s Kaede/Kaere. Rie Kugimiya makes a cameo as Kyoko and that’s why I feel it’s a shame that she had no further appearance other than that single one. It may seem odd her role is to a demon character as it isn’t her conventional tsundere loli roles like Aria in Hidan No Aria or Louise in Zero No Tsukaima. Other casts include Daisuke Namikawa as Akutabe (Kazehaya in Kimi Ni Todoke), Kazuya Nakai as Salamander (Hijikata in Gintama), Tesshou Genda as Moloch (Runa’s dad in Seto No Hanayome), Ryoko Shiraishi as Douchin (Hayate in Hayate No Gotoku), Junko Minagawa as Kanetomo (Ryouma in Prince Of Tennis), Kenichi Suzumura as Himoi (Kairi in Peach Girl), Takeshi Kusao as Sariel (Hanamichi in Slam Dunk) and Keiji Fujiwara as Zeruel (Sven in Black Cat).

There is only an opening theme for the TV series, entitled Pandemic by Chihiro Yonekura. Well, the verses sounded devilish before reverting to a typical anime pop-like chorus. Of course the special ending theme for that Strawberry Warrior episode called Strawberry Magic Nyorin by Hiro Nakajima. The final TV episode’s Like A Party by Team Nekokan featuring Chihiro Yonekura feels like a song for a light party to a bossanova beat. For the OVA, there isn’t any opening theme but the ending song is the classical music, Over The Waves. Feels odd that they put in this kind of music into the OVA. After seeing the kind of bloody humour, do you feel like waltzing to this tune?

So summoning demons is the same as playing with fire. Not careful and you’ll get burnt and may not escape with just a light scald. But when you are going to use such services, you should have been prepared and resolve to accept the consequences. But sometimes when you think about it, humans in general are the real devils themselves. Their hearts. They just lack the power to do anything themselves that’s why if they could, would summon a demon to do their despicable deeds. Probably because of this reason, demons (and angels too) exist. For me, I wouldn’t want to summon a demon even if the situation seems dreadful and hopeless. Not because deciphering grimoire takes a lot of meticulous work, not because demons are ferocious, not because of the harsh punishment and consequences but rather I fear I would summon an idiotic one.
