One would think the high lord of Hell would be an extremely, dangerously evil being with no mercy and as little room for kindness as possible. Instead, the high lord of Hell is Miss Beelzebub; an often tardy, kind, and sometimes somewhere on the range of naked demoness that really enjoys fluffy things…and she just might be in love.
As Miss Beelzebub Likes It is a laid back, relaxing kind of comedy in the Fall 2018 lineup. Episode One is beautifully produced and everything is so goddamn cute that it’s easy to forget you’re watching demons. Beelzebub herself is very entertaining to watch as she navigates through her naive tendencies and surrounded by the what could be one of the cutest mascots I have ever seen since Kyubey, (I know it’s problematic but Kyubey is cute; Admit it).
The story of the show is really nothing new at all, honestly. A somewhat naive girl learning about love and emotions is a story that has been rehashed in so many different anime and manga that this show should not be entertaining in the slightest. But it is. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s demons in hell. Maybe it’s because Miss Beelzebub occasionally throws slight shade.Who really knows?
Episode One of As Miss Beelzebub Likes It is a surprisingly good break from the action of the week or if you’ve been watching Zombieland Saga, the headaches you got from laughing your face off this week.
