Early Monday morning rappers Drake and Diddy got into a brawl just outside of LIV nightclub in Miami out of what is spoken as “disrespect.” Drake and Diddy were both given a beat to record a song together, but Diddy decided to sit on it instead of recording. Drake, frustrated because he wanted to make the song decided to go it on his own which infuriated Diddy, causing Diddy to instigate a fight.
During the fight Diddy hit Drake in the shoulder which is reported to have exacerbated an old wound sending him to the hospital. Over a song. This is now at least his fifth fight, over trivialities. Makes me think of Beelzebub, their idiosyncratic responses to the most ridiculous of things are really what make the show. Because of these fight or fight responses, both Drakes amateur fighting career and Beelzebub are entertaining to see.
The story of Beelzebub is a comedic one, wherein Tatsumi Oga is the best fighter around, so the son of the devil latches on to him to be raised by a human. When baby Beel is full grown, he has a mission to destroy the human world as we know it. It is up to Oga to raise little Beel and convince him that there is no need to destroy humanity, all the while never straying more than a few feet away or he gets electrified!
Oga attends Ishiyama High, school for delinquents and fights someone almost every single day. Sometimes a fight occurs for bragging rights, and he always has to defend his title of “strongest juvenile delinquent.” Other times he fights to save someone, and yet others there are fights just because. That’s what makes this show special, it’s based with a plot but focuses more on the comedy of the situations Oga finds himself in.
Hildegard is a demon maid, one who is designated to ensure baby Beel gets the proper care he deserves whilst in the human world. To ensure her and Beel can stay with Oga and his family she poses as his lover who bore a child of his blood after testing him to see if he was worthy. She is always in a maids outfit and can be seen riding around on a demon that resembles a pterodactyl in ways.
Through many fights and rescues, this show is one of the funniest fighting anime’s I have personally seen. If you haven’t heard of it yet, I suggest you open a web page and Google it. Then decide for yourself if it’s as funny as fighting over a beat to a song!
