Just premiered this year in Japan, the funny anime about foster parenting "Beelzebub" has caused a stir, is now blowing towards Taiwan! TTV, which has bought the rights to air it in Taiwan, will start broadcast on Saturday May 21, 2011 at 6:30 PM. Based on the popular manga by Tamura Ryuhei, it's the story of a delinquent youth who picks up a baby, he didn't expect the baby is the Demon King's offspring! The hilarious stories start from there on. Following the popularity of One Piece and Hitman Reborn, anime fans will surely look forward to this newest primetime offering!
In order to celebrate the premiere of Beelzebub on Taiwanese TV, the channel invited no less than Fahrenheit's Calvin Chen and otaku favorite Da Yuan, personifying the characters in Beelzebub! The refined Calvin Chen went on stage as the bad boy character in Beelzebub, surprisingly getting the audience's unanimous sign of approval, actually Calvin Chen and the character Oga Tatsumi resemble each other! Also the male otaku fans crowded around Da Yuan, who broke away from her usual fresh uni student style to cosplay as the Demon Maid Hilda, appeared in French maid costume, catching the eyes of fans! Da Yuan did a cute dance during the event, got the whole audience going. Aside from the dance, the two people also showed their acting skills by acting out a part of the series, making the audience laugh over and over!
Calvin Chen and Da Yuan said they love manga and anime since they were little, even fantasizing they were characters in the manga. Da Yuan joked, "This time being spokesperson for Beelzebub and cosplaying as Hilda, I fulfilled my childhood dream!" They play-acted parts of the anime, the character Oga Tatsumi always getting electrecuted by the Demon Baby Beel, always saying he will free himself from the baby but always not being able to, the audience couldn't help but laugh out loud. Audience members who were excited by the characters of Beelzebub on stage, said they are especially looking forward to TTV's broadcast of the anime, and looked at the DVD and other merchandise available at the press con.
Because Beelzebub is described as a comedy of a delinquent youth taking care of a demon baby, they also let Calvin Chen and Da Yuan experience taking care of a baby, changing diapers, feeding, etc, testing the two people's ability to take care of babies. They also invited some fans to go on stage and form groups with the actors, interacting happily! Calvin Chen and Da Yuan who usually don't carry babies around, were initially confused, they didn't know what to do, hurriedly asking the audience for advice, making the atmosphere very lively! Seeing Calvin Chen's flustered manner, people had to ask whether he had any competence in taking care of babies. Calvin Chen laughed and said that he loves children, when he's filming children would take the initiative to play with him, giving him the title King of Children. He also said when the time comes that he has kids of his own, he will take care of them himself, he will make time to stay with his kids at home. After that game, the two people asked for advice on taking care of babies, so that in the future they will not commit the same mistakes as today.
Calvin Chen said the clothes he wore today were very sentimental to him, and said he will ask the company if he can have it as a present. Da Yuan also heard him say this, and also wanted to take her cosplay costume home. After the press con, Calvin Chen and Da Yuan asked the audience to tune in to TTV's broadcast of Beelzebub every Saturday, 6:30 PM.
