Meet the would-be assassins of class 3-E: Sugino, who let his grades slip and got kicked off the baseball team. Karma, who's doing well in his classes but keeps getting suspended for fighting.

Both Beelzebub and Assassination Classroom deal with school settings, are funny, and have students who are looking to get stronger and become better fighters. Each main character is also fighting for a goal that is evil. I would say that Beelzebub is a more intense with fights and things of that nature, while Assassination Classroom is more of a lighter goofy read. The two are polar opposites with very similar settings. If you liked one, it would be worthwhile to check out the other.

Both are typical shounen with lots of funny moments, and they both take place in a school setting. They also both feature a number of "monsters" and action.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both are funny shounen series featuring superpowered non-humans and a high school setting. Both the schools involved are a little odd as well.

Yakoz92 Yakoz92 says...

Two nice comedies packed with action and very likeable protagonists: in the right corner you have a "delinquent" who becomes babysitter of a baby destined to become king of the demons; in the left corner you have an alien, an entity capable of destroying Earth (even the Universe) who enjoys his new "career" as a teacher and challenges his alumns in killing him.

In SWOT and Beelzebub, schools are filled up with gangs of delinquents always fighting around like they are the greatest martial artists of the world. The main character on both of these series are also the strongest fighter of the school. There's loads of humor on both.

Like strong guys fighting their way through a school known for it's delinquents? Then both of these series are for you. Though Beelzebub has the demon baby aspect to it, both of the main characters are similarly antisocial. If you like the fights in one, check out the other.

both stories involve the school filled with delinquents and then the strong male lead comes and rules the school

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yuusuke is a street-fighting, class-skipping juvenile delinquent. Killed in an unexpected act of kindness, he thwarts the spirit-world bureaucracy and ends up with a second chance at life... as infant prince of death Koenma's Spirit Detective! Simultaneously cheered on and kept in line by Keiko Yukimura, his childhood friend, he is joined by a spiritually aware human, two demons on parole, and guided by a much too lively ferry girl of the dead. Together they plow through demons, tournaments, hijinks, intense "martial arts" training, cross-dressers, dungeons, conspiracies and bad puns alike. At the end of the day, what's it all for? Kicking butt and saving the world, of course!

Both Beelzebub and Yu Yu Hakusho follow a delinquent teenage boy who is the toughest kid at school. Through different events both protagonists becomes involved with the demon world, and they each aquire some powers. These two are about as similar as two titles can get. They are each totally unique, and if you liked one, you would for sure like the other.

Yakoz92 Yakoz92 says...

Both protagonists are delinquents who are involved in street fights on a daily basis. Developing their abilities they get closer and closer to a demonic world and their lives are destined to change. Comedy and fights are keys in both titles.

thor123 thor123 says...

Both manga have delinquent main characters (coincidentally the toughest kids in their school) who by some accident become involved in the affairs of the underworld, and have to become stronger to survive. Good fights and comedy are important elements in both manga.

Both of these manga feature the devil as well as other both good and bad demons. Both main characters like to do everything themselves and can't really understand (at least not at first) how to work along with friends. Both protagonists also carry a heavy burden and incredible power that they have to learn to control in order to save the world or just survive. Both manga feature humor as well as tragedy and pain but Beelzebub leans more toward humor while Ao no exorcist is a bit more serious.

As an added bonus, both also take place in a school setting and are well written and drawn and there are lots of memorable characters.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Blue Exorcist and Beelzebub have a lot in common. They're both shounen series featuring demons, a weird school setting and lots of very powerful teenagers.

tekgen tekgen says...

If you enjoyed the rotten behaviour of the protagonist of either Beelzebub or Kyou Kara Ore wa!! You'll find the other (manga) to be equally enjoyable. The non-chalant misregard for the concerns and cares of others set both these protagonists as mostly evil beings. Have a laugh as both the main characters punish their friends and generally harass innocent bystanders.
