Series Premise: Yondemasu-yo, Azazel-san or “You Are Being Summoned, Azazel” is a weekly anime television series that started in April 2011, based on a comedy manga by Yasuhisa Kubo. Rinko is the young assistant to a detective that can summon demons, who unknowingly finds herself bound in a contract with the minor demon Azazel.

Episode Summary: Akutabe calls upon the ultra-jealous Undine for a job, acting as the guardian of an extremely bratty and lecherous teenager who is having trouble at school. This boy also controls the demon Gurion, a winged monkey who feeds on memories. At school, Undine vies for the attention of the hunky, magnanimous male teacher, who is also in the sights of the unsightly principal.
My Impressions: Not much to say, other than just another frenetic episode of Yondemasu-yo, Azazel-san. (Y’know, given that he’s the title character, Azazel doesn’t exactly get a whole lot of attention, does he?)
One of the saving graces for the series is that the episodes are only about twelve minutes long — I would imagine the high-tension comedy style would become irksome if it went on for much longer. Furthermore, the characters themselves are so forceful (on purpose, of course) that a little of each goes a long way — so rotating in the various demons through the episodes is also a godsend. Undine really is a funny character, but it’s doesn’t take much of her antics before I’ve had my fill.
Yeah, the series is decently funny enough…as long as it is consumed in small doses.

Sampling of Online Reviews:
- “Lots of laughs and general weirdness this week on Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san. The underworld stuff was a gas and somehow managed to arouse sympathy for the usually creepy mandrake.” – Moe Monster
- “Gusion could also potentially be an interesting character with the whole memory-eating thing so I hope this arc doesn’t disappoint. It’s off to a good start anyway, and I found it a lot more entertaining than the episodes have been lately, although it’s still not on par with the start of the series.” – Moeronpan
