TheAwersome Rating: 7.6 / 10 (Cute and fluffy)
Premise: Banished from Heaven, Beelzebub rules over Pandemonium where former angels that have turned into demons work. One day, Beelzebub gets a new attendant named Mullin. Beelzebub seemed wise and cool… but she’s actually a girl that loves fluffy things! Mullin is shocked at this revelation but still tries to get closer to Beelzebub every day. They are surrounded by various other unique and clumsy demons, and this story might be about the demons giving a certain emotion a name… maybe.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: Much like Beelzebub’s fascination, this show is pure comfy fluff. If the bombardment of soft pastels doesn’t hint enough for you, nothing stressful or serious is really going to go down in this show. The aesthetic is interesting enough though, Pandemonium is this whole realm, where the governing body all work in a large Rococo Palace and dress accordingly, but the rest of the city is just a modern Japanese city. The whole “being demons” thing doesn’t really come into play either, it’s just for fun names and an excuse to have an aesthetic basically, and sure why not.
While the characters are extremely 2-dimentionsal, none of that stops it from being a comfy cute sweet and fun time. It does end somewhat abruptly, there may or may not be another season sometime, but nothing’s really resolved in this first one.
TLDR: A good addition to the list of stress-free comfy shows to watch before bed.
No real bonus thoughts on this one, it’s just a simple, comfy, cute shoujo.
