Ilmu Budaya Dasar

Berdasarkan sumber filsafat yang dianggap sebagai ibu dari ilmu pengetahuan, maka ilmu pengetahuan dapat dikelompokkan menjadi tiga :

a. Natural Sciences (Ilmu-ilmu Alamiah), meliputi: Fisika, Kimia, Astronomi, Biologi dan lain-lain.

b. Sosial Sciences (Ilmu-ilmu Sosial), terdiri dari : Sosiologi, Ekonomi, Politik Antropologi, Sejarah,  Psikologi, Geografi dan lain-lain.

c. Humanities (Ilmu-ilmu Budaya) meliputi : Bahasa, Agama, Kesusastraan, Kesenian dan lain-lain.

Mengikuti pembagian ilmu pengetahuan seperti tersebut di atas, Maka Ilmu Budaya Dasar termasuk kelompok pengetahuan budaya (Humanities).

Mengapa kita harus mempelajari tentang Ilmu-limu Budaya (Humanities) ?
Karena  dengan mempelajari  Ilmu-ilmu budaya diharapkan kita bisa menjadi lebih manusiawi, lebih berbudaya dan lebih halus. Sebagai contoh jika kita mempelajari Humanities, kita akan tahu bagaimana cara perperilaku kepada keluarga, teman bahkan kepada orang yang lebih tua. Dan juga dengan mempelajari Ilmu-ilmu budaya kita dapat disebut  sebagai homo humanus atau manusia berbudaya

Beelzebub (べるぜバブ Beruzebabu?) is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Ryūhei Tamura that serializes in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine. Beelzebub was first published as a one-shot by Tamura in Weekly Shōnen Jump's 2008 volume 37-38, where it won the fourth Gold Future Cup, then it was serialized on the same magazine starting in its thirteenth volume in 2009. An OVA produced by Pierrot+ was shown during the Jump Super Anime Tour in October 2010, followed by a TV anime series which began airing in Japan on January 9, 2011.


The story follows the "strongest juvenile delinquent," Oga Tatsumi, who is a first year at Ishiyama High, a school for delinquents. The story starts as he is telling the story of how he found the baby, to his best friend Furuichi Takayuki. One day while doing laundry by the river (actually, taking revenge on people trying to kill him in his sleep), he sees a man floating down it. He pulls him to shore and the man splits in half revealing a baby boy inside. This boy is the son of the great demon king and Tatsumi has been chosen as the one to raise it along with the baby's maid, Hilda. The story follows his life with the child and at the delinquent school. The early chapters of the manga follow Oga as he attempts to 'pass on' Baby Beel to other students at Ishiyama, (The theory is that if Oga can find someone more evil and stronger than him, Baby Beel will attach to that person instead of Oga), and he eventually meets the Touhoushinki (Ishiyama's strongest four). He first meets Hajime Kanzaki, the first of the Touhoushinki and the closest to dominating the school. After defeating Kanzaki, Oga, who was originally impressed by his attitude, was found to be even more appealing to Beel.

Keima Katsuragi, a second-year high school student, is an avid bishōjo game player. He is known on the Internet as "The God of Conquests" (落とし神 Otoshi-gami?) for his legendary skills to be able to "conquer" any 2D girl in games. However, in his actual school life, Keima is known as otamegane (オタメガネ?), a derogatory portmanteau of the two words otaku (オタク?) and megane (メガネ?, "glasses"), and is considered nothing but an intelligent yet gloomy geek with glasses.

At the start of the series, Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "conquer" girls. When he accepts it, thinking it is an invitation to a game, a demon from Hell named Elsie appears. She asks for his cooperation to help her in catching runaway spirits: Loose Souls. These spirits hide themselves inside the hearts of girls, and Elsie suggests that the only method to force the spirits out is by "conquering" the girls hearts, making them fall in love with him and filling up the gaps which the runaway spirits hide in. Interested only in video game girls, however, Keima is appalled by the idea, and refuses the assignment as he has no romantic real life experiences whatsoever. Nevertheless, with the contract already agreed, Keima has no choice but to help Elsie no matter what, as they will be beheaded if they fail.

Unbalance Unbalance (언밸런스×2?, lit. Unbalance ×2) is a Korean manhwa series written by Dall-Young Lim and illustrated by Soo-Hyun Lee. The series focuses on Jin-Ho Myung, a high school senior, and his romantic relationship with his homeroom teacher, Hae-Young Nah. The manhwa began biweekly serialization in Young Champ magazine in May 2005, and the first volume was released on June 15, 2005 by Daewon C.I.. The series had a long hiatus following the release of the ninth volume, and resumed serialization in Young Champ from October 2010 to October 2011. The tenth and final volume was released by Daewon C.I. on January 13, 2012. Unbalance Unbalance was licensed in North America by Infinity Studios, and released the first volume on January 11, 2007. A drama CD was released in Japan in September 2009.

Jin-Ho Myung returns a wallet and cell phone to a beautiful young woman (Hae-Young Nah) in a book shop, little realizing that she would find out that he has already (rather presumptuously) taken 7000 won to buy a book he really wanted. The woman in question is understandably rather upset but decides to consider the money as a loan, which she expects to be paid back.

On the first day of the new school year, he learns, to his horror, that the very same woman is to be his new homeroom teacher. The bad news for Jin-Ho is that she remembers their previous encounter very well.

As the school year progresses, Jin-Ho and Hae-Young's relationship grows and develops despite Ji-Soo (Jin-Ho's classmate and their class president) and Jae-Kyung (Jin-Ho's old friend and former president of the Film Studies Club) having feelings toward Jin-Ho. Carrie, Hae-Young's half-sister from England, also makes her move towards Jin-Ho but she understands Jin-Ho's love to Hae-Young.
