seven tankobon volumes are available in Japan. Its English edition has been published by Yen Press
under the title As Miss Beelzebub Likes (removing "it" from the original title). The publisher introduces
its story as below:
Beelzebub--the formidable right hand of Satan--commands fear and respect throughout Pandemonium.
What her underlings don't realize, though, is that she's an airhead with a love for all that is fluffy and
adorable! The only thing she might enjoy more is teasing her new attendant, Mullin, who is learning
that serving Beelzebub is both heaven and hell...
25-year-old Saori Ohnishi, best known as Aiz Wallenstein in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?
and Muramasa Senju in Eromanga Sensei, is cast as Beelzebub, while Rikuya Yasuda, who is currently playing
