I rarely say this about a Beelzebub chapter but this was pretty lame there's maybe 1 interesting part and its the whole fact nasu seems to know about baby beel's real identity other then that I got nothing that tells me i'll be impressed

Man...how has Beelzebub fall like this? (at least to me)

Now that the Nasu guy looks to have some demon connection things look a bit more interesting (since it would make more sense if he ends up actually being Oga Level or stronger) but still...these past few chapters I haven't found anything really interesting or exciting, even when there's nice fighting I find myself going "Meh". Which is actually pretty abnormal for this manga.
Ever since I first started reading, nearly every chapter I laugh out loud or get excited for the fights or both, few were the chapters that I've found to be average and fewer were those that I found boring...much less a whole string of chapters.

It's not just the level of threat from the new guys either, sure it has gotten to the point where only demons or those contracted with demons are logically a threat to Oga, Toujou and Aoi...but even so I still haven't found the character's that entertaining. Nasu, which we've seen the most of, just feels like the author is trying to hard...plus he gives a huge Hisoka (HxH) feel and while I love Hisoka...I don't really like this guy for some reason.

I dunno...it's really the first time I've been feeling like this with this manga, and I don't like it...

Pretty boring chapter. I don't know why the writer wants to build the tension in this arc if those freshmen are human. In fact, most of them are surprised at Oga's brute force. This automatically disqualified many of the potential enemies in this arc. As for the Nasu, he is bland.

Seriously, I would rather see the writer introduce a baby "Angel" than this Nasu guy.

Beelzebub chapter with no girls (or even Furuichi) = not so good

Nasu being more then just a thug is the only thing that caught my eye, but beyond that .. eh

well at least they are introducing a lot of "villians" so we maybe can hope himekawa, toujou and kanzaki to join to fight.

I don't know about dragging, but the pace is indeed pretty slow lately. Five chapters have been spent on introduction only.

At least it looks like these guys might be an actual threat since they seem to know about Baby Beel. Maybe they're backed up by somebody.

Soooo it is safe to assume that Taka would also be going after Beel and that Taka and Nasu would end up joining forces to do so. Did anyone get the One piece reference and also the Haruhi one.

^I didn't get the One Piece reference.

Nasu's face on page 5 reminded me of Hisoka from HxH.

I'm just hoping the cast quickly deals with this "threat" in a rapid fashion, say 2-3 chapters most.
I couldn't care less for the new characters introduced, Nasu may or may not have some connection to demons but still he should be just a little challenging for Oga, before getting the beatdown of his life.
But my main thoughts about this arc is just that I'm tired of the freshmen already. Just do them MK-9 style and be done with it.


P.S: I could see the author going for that long introduction, stating that the freshmen are many and powerfull and end up with the trio of Oga, Aoi and Toujou (or just Oga and Toujou) just leveling the ground with all of them at the same time, further ensuring their image of complete monsters.

I'm thinking that Nasu more or less believes that the baby is what gives Oga so much strength and that's why he wants the baby for himself
Or he's a demon/contractor

See...the problem is that at first I also thought Oga and the others would just wreck these guys and the build-up would end in a chapter or two...it has been done before, antagonists being hyped and turning out to be shit, but never to this scale. But now I can't really see that happening for some reason, it really does look like these bland and boring antagonists are gonna stick around around for a bit which is a damn shame.

Already said what I wanted to say in my post before and I'll stick around anyway...just really not happy with how things are going.

And Nasu calling Beel "Belzie" seems to point at a kinda long arc.....
Please gods of manga, kill these boring antagonists in a car accident off-screen and bring back Midnight, he's much more interesting than these guys.

reread: well maybe a little bit of dragging with the chapter.
into the chapter, Nasu might have connection with demon and other two people, Taka and Fuji.
It's just that I don't believe Oga would let them leave like that after introducing themselves. IMO, Oga would just faceplant all of them while they're leaving. If they can defend themselves, fine, proper fight time starts now. If not, then faceplant time starts now.

That Oga IS letting them leave without you know, rushing forward and beating them up, makes me feel like the author is dragging it out.

As much as you guys may think this arc is boring, I'm not too sure it's fair to judge an entire arc based on 5 chapters. I'd rather and am going to, wait until this arc is at least half-way done before I decide whether or not it's a bad one.

It really annoys me when people start saying "You can't say an arc is X based on Y number chapters."

Yes...yes we can, we judge an arc by what we've seen of it so far and when more chapters are released we'll keep or change our judgement of the arc based on them all.
Simple as that.

Alright, fair enough. However, personally, I'd still much rather wait till we get to the half-way point of this arc before I decide whether or not this is a decent arc.

Personally I think this arc will be quite ok IF they managed to make it interesting after the introduction of the new bag guys. I just want to see more people involved in the fight, not only Oga vs the world + random Aoi/Toujou

And how do you decide when its halfway by some magical crystal ball? This manga was unpredictable a lot of times, finishing or prolonging things you wouldn't expect. Though this new arc is fricking boring, I might as well wait until its finished and read it in one go or even skip it entirely.

I assumed that the Mr.6 and Mr.4 was a reference to one piece as they also got characters by them names. I also said that a few posts behide.

So far I am liking the new arc. Sure there are allot of new characters who may well be forgotten and have no impact on the story or any of the characters but doesn't mean the author can't have fun with it. Even if it may turn the chapters boring given that so far only Nasu seems like the only one who would impact the story the rest could well be there for just the fighting parts of the story as Mr.4 and Mr 6 clearly seem no match for Oga/Touhou/Aoi and Natume maybe Aiba.
