According to legend, Beelzebub, one of the seven princes of Hell, betrayed God and was banished from Heaven for eternity. Beelzebub now leads the kingdom of Pandemonium, where all former angels roam and work every single day of their immortal lives. A devil like him would give people chills at the mere mention of his name, but… What if Beelzebub is not as evil as initially thought? What if he was obsessed with fluffy things? And what if Beelzebub is actually a woman? That is what new assistant Myurin discovers when he is hired to serve Her Majesty Beelzebub. She may know exactly what to do to keep Pandemonium running like clockwork, but whenever she leaves the professionalism of the office, the girl needs some assistance in order to function like a normal…devil. As much as Myurin can’t stand being unprofessional, he is secretly obsessed with her adorable antics, and his new job teaches him that everything is not exactly what it seems, especially with the other head devils of Pandemonium.

Hell is always imagined to be a Dark, Dangerous place full of torturous, tormented filled with savage beings and creatures.
Well you can throw all that imagination out of the window when you see what this anime beholds especially for an idea of the Underworld.
The anime revolves around a Hell or rather a paradise looking hell called Pandemonium which is the mix of a bit of ancient and modern age developed setting with the very high element of cuteness, moe and Fluffiness (Yes you heard me) .
Meet our MC’s Miss Beelzebub who is the supreme demon leader of the underworld who is a air head, laid back adorable and a pretty teenage looking girl who’s obsessed with cute things and food with her favorite word being “MOFU MOFU” (soft/Fluffy in Japanese description) and her personal assistant/guardian Myurin, who takes care of her persona work matters, makes sure she finishes her work instead of lazying around and is responsible most of the times. Also is a bit of a shy Tsundere in nature.
Apart from this,there’s also a special close relation between them which is lingering but is still developing. As Myurin really has admiration and respect for Beelzebub as the demon lord and his boss, but also likes her cute side and adores her secretly and is protective.Also Beelzebub is really dependent on myurin for her work and chores being a bit of a lazy,air head girl but also really values him and somewhere secretly also has a big soft spot for him, which is slowly developing into feelings.
This adorable relationship between them keeps being developed with their respective characters throughout the series in a really cute, humorous and heartwarming way, almost like watching young innocent teenagers beginning to learn about love.
Also there are relationship developments along with other side character couples too which are really interesting and pleasant to watch too.
Besides the MC we have our Side characters who have great enjoyable personalities as well ,for example:
Azazel , A manly ripped guy/Former Demon lord who is a bit shy and speaks using placards and secretly also loves Cute things.
Berphegor a really sweet, cute shy girl who has big time anxiety talking to others except for beelzebub.Her anxiety means she shakes from fear almost constantly and also has a nervous bladder when she is really frightened and she dashes to the washroom several times a minute.
Eurynome A big time Shotacon who’s love for small boys grow no bounds and has a ability where she can imagine a Grown up guy in his small boy form which is really hilarious especially when she reacts to it.
Azeroth another demon lord, who calls himself Beelzebub’s Elder brother though not related who is a small time siscon, but loves to flirt around with other girls most of the time.
Azeroth’s assistant Sargatans who is has a sadist only towards him, and despite her calm appearance loves punishing Azeroth when he lazes around flirting with girls and punishes him more harshly with wrestling moves when he calls her Flat. Despite her violence she also enjoys cute things but prefers to keep her hobby a secret.
Other good characters with interesting personalities are also present,which viewers will quite enjoy.
This really simple plot with hell and demon/fallen angel references with these main and side characters with their unique and enjoyable personalities and antics with the element of comedy and cuteness overload and a good bit of romance make for a great relaxing and enjoyable series.
Animation and Art.
The Animation quality is top notch by LIDENFILMS, with their clear, but elegant and bright pastel color’s and beautiful & adorable creations which brings out the cuteness and lighthearted moments of the anime.
The background music with the intro and outro are equally chill, calming & delightful to hear, along with a calm and enjoyable narration in between scenes.
A soothing and warm series, purely about the happy stuff, a real stress reliever, perfect for all those who are into this type of anime. I personally am and can’t watch this show without smiling and giving a few laughs and just taking in the cuteness and heartwarming moments.
Hope more viewers delve into this show to have a really good and enjoyable time. Really good recommendation. 🙂

This series is very light and entertaining. In the beginning, I was not decided if watching the show because I thought it could be average. It is challenging trying to create a cute plot from demons. The first thing that came to my mind was a horned devil with a stick burning others or a bossy demon demanding attention. However, this series exceeded my expectations. The anime is adorable, delightful, tender, funny, and the most importantly it is enjoyable.
The series can be considered a satire by some. However, for me, it is just a different vision from the purgatory and cannot be called a parody. The tender atmosphere and the adorable characters are not to everyone’s taste. For these reasons, it is common to see trashy scores, and this series is not an exception. Do not let that the rating changes your mind. If you like an adorable plot, with attractive and well-developed characters, then you must try “Beelzebub – jou no Okinimesu mama.”
The story is developed in the hell. It is a cute and charming place instead of the classical hell from other stories where the putrid smell and the deadly atmosphere is around. This place is managed by Beelzebub, a known fallen angel in the demon tales. However, in this story, she is adorable, pretty and dynamic. Since she is hell’s governor, she needs assistants one of them is Myurin (aka Mullin) who helps her in the daily activities such as motivating her, updating the agenda, etc. Also, we meet an acceptable number of characters with a different background. The plot focuses on the interaction between these characters, and they develop subplots that are tied together well. These characters have a unique role in the pandemonium. For example, Beelzebub and Myurin are in charge of the administration, Astaroth and Sargatanas oversee the finance department. Furthermore, it setups some comedic and romantic scenes that are pleasant to the eye. Lastly, we explore their daily experiences in the pandemonium in this tender slice of life story.
Another important aspect is the pacing. The show manages good pacing between the main plot (relationship Beel and Myurin) and the subplots (the connection between Belphegor and Azazel). All these stories affect the story and add some innocent tone to the outcome.
I want to praise the series because the character design and development is right, they are appealing. Each character is unique, original and during all the episodes they are dynamic and multidimensional because you can see a growth in their personalities and desires. The characters can be divided into couples depending on their romantic interests.
Beelzebub is the pandemonium leader. She is very adorable and cute. She loves fluffy things, and she is a bit shy when Myurin is nearby, but she wants to get his attention. However, she is a hard worker and is very powerful (just mentioned). I love her outfit design maybe it will be worth for a cosplay.
Myurin, he is Beelzebub personal assistant. He has to support her, and he cares about his job and her boss. He worries too much when the work is not done and presses Beelzebub to do it. Deep inside, he is a bit shy and does not know how to approach Beelzebub more intimately.
There are other characters such as Belphegor that cannot start a conversation with Azazel or the latter that cannot speak without a board. I cannot write about all the characters, but they have unique traits that complement the other characters and boost plot. All them are very enjoyable and pleasant to the eye.
–Art and Sound—
The animation is great. However, it is not for all the tastes because they are using a pastel palette and bright scenes with the purpose to highlight the beautiful and adorable traits from the characters and the plot itself. The camera angles cover the most relevant parts and help to boost the plot.
The sound is elegant and soft. The director was not seeking to build up the plot with music, so it is more classical, ambient music that goes well with the show. About the OP conveys a charming and happy atmosphere; the ED is good and acceptable, but this season we have better and more catchy songs.
The show propels the elegance and the surreal part of the hell. It is very different from the usual anime, and it is a plus. It is refreshing, and the plot has coherence. Honestly, I liked the series. It is pleasant and cute. The interaction between the characters is lovely and enjoyable. I know that a lot of spectators will dislike this kind of plot, but if you are up to adorable things or easy plots, then it is a good option for you.
