I mean it, it's not like Gash Bell at all.

Demon baby come to earth. Totally not Gash Bell, though.

The latest Shonen Jump project to get a TV anime is Beelzebub, as announced in this week’s edition of the manga anthology. Tamura Ryuuichi’s high school battle comedy is scheduled to start airing in January 2011. The manga stars hot-headed, dim-witted delinquent Oga Tatsumi, also known as “Ogre,” who finds himself in the unfortunate position of playing foster father to a demon baby named Beelzebub. In order to rid himself of the troublesome and deadly infant, he has to wade his way through the worst of the worst at his high school while still keeping the lightning-shooting infant safe.

With the usual blunt instruments of Jump anime, a huge amount of talent has been assembled to play the leads, from Konishi Katsuyuki (Kamina, Gurren Lagann) as Oga and Sawashiro Miyuki (fricking everything) as baby Beelzebub to Toyosaki Aki (Yui, K-On!) in the role of Kunieda Aoi, the strongest girl at school.

Yeah, I don’t know how that last casting will work either, but I am trying my hardest to ignore the existence of this anime, since the manga is pretty forgettable. What’s that, you say? One of the main characters is a busty demon maid? Well, crap.
