In this week’s, “Why the hell am I reviewing a 12-minute episode?”, I take a look at the latest Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san.
Akutabe stresses to bespectacled assistant Rinko the potential dangers of contracting with a demon. In particular, the danger of not reading the demon’s grimoire, a book of rules and other super important stuff I guess, Akutabe wasn’t specific. Ignoring his warnings in favor of the easy problem solving potential of magical powers she begins to rely on her supernatural partners. They’re complete retards though so you know that won’t end well.
After a questionable display of power to save a girl from Japan’s apparently rampant train molestation, Rinko takes a case. She’d better be careful though because an angel has caught her scent. Angels are duty bound to observe humanity without interference. Unless the balance between heaven and hell is threatened. Then they can transform into chibi versions and playfully wrestle chibi demons. Hey, I don’t make the rules people.
Finding that the demons available lack the necessary skills for her assignment she requests one that can force the truth from people. Akutabe, jokester that he is, gives her Moloch, the most violent demon in Hell. He’s going to beat the truth out of people, maybe? I don’t know.
At a meeting with the client, Rinko accidentally does some actual detective work and solves the case. The whole thing was just a result of the client’s immaturity and carelessness. When the deadbeat sexually harasses her instead of paying she drunkenly abuses her demonic contract again by having the penguin give him a massive case of the mud butt.
Episode 05 of Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san was one of the funniest episodes so far. Azazel’s snide remarks were the high point for me. He’s like Kon from Bleach turned up to 666. Beelzebub and Akutabe didn’t have a whole lot to do in this Rinko-centric episode but seeing the sweet looking assistant’s continuing transformation into demon powered bitch more than made up for her bosses lack of screen time.
This show is rapidly becoming a favorite.
