Aiba was never meant to be a foil to Oga. He was, from the beginning, meant to be a foil to Aoi, so she should become more honest with herself. He was everything Aoi was afraid to be, and when she realized that, his purpose was finished.
Someone’s been visiting mangafox, I see.
In b4 Hilda vs. Aoi, round 394. If shippers can bash Aoi for not getting with Aiba, what makes you think we are reading the same manga?
I finished doing all of the requests left in my inbox… sumimasen for being inactive… I’ve been really busy… And I just finished catching up with the manga… so yeah.
Does anyone want to help me run this blog? I know I don’t get requests everyday, but at least this blog would be updated. Anyone?
I’d be more than happy to co-mod the blog for you! =D If you have any rules or specifications you’d like me to follow I’ll do it.
I didn’t even watch this episode, but I could feel Studio Pierrot’s Ogafuru shipping aura all the way from Japan. True story.
I still can’t believe this artist deleted their website. :(
aww really? D:
Here it is, in its un-translated Chinese glory. The moderator did a Google translation, but like hell that’s a valid one. =/
lol what? XD
Late Night Text From Ishiyama High. LOL
Reblogging myself, just so I can say it: Whoever submitted this must be a pretty happy anon at the moment.
“I mean, both Aoi and Hilda needed to be saved by Oga although they’re both powerful women. Shizuka is one of the six who could sense Zen using his powers and yet just sat there meekly while Izuma and Toujou fought against the two demons. The recent colour cover page to celebrate 3 years have all the girls serving the men. I don’t like this. :/”
I hate to be “that person”, but I will. I think the anon is over-simplifying the issue. Beelzebub is a satirical manga that runs in Shonen Jump. While the magazine may be “the cutting edge of manga”, it’s still mainstream for Japan and its just not going to push the gender envelope like you want it to. Beelzebub often pokes fun of more established shonen tropes, meaning at best it will always be a little retrospective, even of gender roles.
I’m not going to refute the things that you’ve mentioned, but I’m wondering if these things bother you enough to stop reading it. To be honest, this isn’t a series where you can ignore the female characters, and in most recent chapters the cast is the most gender-balanced as its ever been. The author is also in the process of making two love triangles. If the female characters haven’t done what you wanted them to do, then prepare to be continuously disappointed.
On a side-note, I think Furuichi is totally “the Chick” of Beelzebub. The girls are awesome, but they really don’t function as “the Chick” as well as he does.
