I didn't really like the first act, but the second act was right up my alley. The king of hell and his chief demon chatting over lunch? More please!

Wow... It wasn't that interesting when I read about it but its an okay first episode... I liked the animation though, as it was simple and clean.

I may be the first person here to actually say I actually enjoyed the first episode quite a lot. I do agree that is was pretty simple and flat or even boring at a couple points, but there were many factors that I liked about it like Hozuki himself and his love for animals (the reason for this is my love for animals too, so I can relate :3).......not to mention his voice is very deep and sexy lol >w<, the uniqueness and interesting little quirks it has in the first episode, the traditional Japanese artwork in some scenes and music at the beginning, and how much of the Japanese culture consumes it.

I would say that you can only enjoy this show unless you know practically everything about the Japanese culture because that's pretty much what it's based on by the looks of it (don't quote me on that since I haven't read the manga, this is just episode 1 based ^^"). Thankfully for me, I know quite a bit about Japanese culture, not everything, but a good amount so some of the points I found amusing or clever, something that someone who knows nothing about Japanese culture would find bland and boring.

Animation was pretty good, nothing outstanding, but good.

I actually really, really enjoyed the music, especially the background music. Very enjoyable.

Will definitely watch and looking forward the the next episode!!!

I'd probably love this show if I got more of the cultural references, but I ended up bailing out halfway through the first episode.

Much better ep than the first one. Loved both halves of it and actually got most of the references this time! Love their version of Satan. Hozuki scares even Satan and made him regret ever being mean to his underling demons after seeing how Hozuki treats Enma.

Love the artwork, like the humor, didn't care much for the nationalism even if it's hell.

I think this one's a keeper though.

Loved it. The second episode more than the first. I was genuinely entertained. Love the art and the opening song is just all kinds of great.

It is a lot like Gintama with quick visual references and lots of yelling. My favorite new series this year, anyway. Queued and ready.

This show gets progressively better with each episode that airs. The first episode I will have to admit was nothing special, but it did catch my interest a little bit. The second episode was much better and much more entertaining than the first,
. With this new third episode, i was literally laughing out loud multiple times through the episode's progression, more than the first two combined in fact! I'm obviously very much enjoying the dark comedy in this show :)

What makes the show amazing, though, isn't the dark comedy but Hoozuki himself. I find that he's one of those interesting characters that is charming in his own way, even though he doesn't seem it at all. All his little hobbies and interests are cute and funny.......and let's not forget that voice of his lol ^/////^"

I also like how they kinda recap what when on in previous episodes by mentioning them in the new episodes

This one has become on of my top favorites of the season for sure!

This is getting better with each episode. Especially as we learn more about Hozuki himself.

It's certainly a fun one. Hozuki reminds me of me in real life

Episode 4.

Ok, it was worth sticking with this show just for this pun. Totally caught me off-guard. Don't look if you haven't watched yet
