For a final fight, Tamura does his best to salvage what was lost in the mad rush to the end of the series. The brevity of the fight itself can be forgiven as the chapter doubled down on the action, which is a plus after the chapters leading up to this. The brief glimpse of Oga’s power-up when they were in America seemed too much like Super Saiyan, so it’s no surprise that Tamura took the joke and ran with it, making Super Saiyan Oga one of the brighter points in the series as of late. This nice development evolves well with the battle itself, as it slowly turns into a fight reminiscent of Dragon Ball, further lending to Beelzebub’s brand of comedy, which was missing for a while.
However, Fuji remains the sour note in this composition, mainly due to being underdeveloped and just plain unremarkable. As a casualty of the accelerated pace, Fuji doesn’t stand out amongst previous adversaries and now just fills the role of a generic demon. Fuji and Satan should have been developed better if they were planned to be the final enemy. Alas, for this reason, Fuji and Satan have too little invested in them to make the battle exciting, and this will stand as one of the biggest blunders in Beelzebub. The final attack at the end of the chapter sounds random and goofy enough for Oga to pull out, so it’s less likely that this will be a generic beam attack and possibly some comedic move of sorts. This is where the author shines, so hopefully this will be the last glorious moment for the series as it closes down.
Final Flash: Oga’s antics are great, but there’s just not enough about Fuji and Satan worth caring about.
