We should consider ourselves lucky when it comes to what kind of creatures we have in our world. Because when it comes to the world of anime, well let’s just say we should be happy we don’t have demon’s and other supernatural beings in our daily life.
Like in Beelzebub, where the main protagonist lands a job of raising a demon child. I believe the supernatural exists close to everyone’s heart because of the big ‘’What if...’’ and the constant thoughts about the creatures that might be living with us in secret. The great thing about these kinds of anime, is they can take place at any time and place. Which brings out a lot of interesting plots and characters.
It’s time to take a look into the demon world and see what other recommendations there are for all of you anime lovers out there.
