    Very Funny Hope the rest of the show stays as good as the first episode.
    I thought this show was very funny and i really liked the characters and the story. I liked this anime humor and the main character was also one who i could see myself really liking as the story progressed. I thought the first episode was very interesting and i look forward to seeing how the show continues.

    A Day in the Life of Japanese Hell's Manager also: MUST SEE OP
    For a slice of life anime this is the most interesting you will probably ever see. The sliced life in this series is that of Japanese Hell's highly efficient and somewhat sadistic head manager. Silly and rather simplistic but also breathtakingly beautiful because it's drawn like a huge, colorful woodblock print.

    But whatever your opinion of the summary might be you MUST WATCH the opening ...

    like a japanese version of the Office, but set in Hell.
    Often I don't get Anime comedies unless they are off the wall weird or awkward and thankfully this is both! You'll probably need to know some of the japanese legends/ folktales that come up in the episodes to get the full jist of some of the jokes. But there's plenty to laugh at even without that knowledge. Favorite quotes so far: "Please this is hell. Let's solve it with violence." and "I can't ...

    Super Recommended! Charming and funny.
    If you like Gintama, give this anime a try. The characters are really charming and funny. The episodes are split into small stories which make them easy to watch. If you are learning Japanese or are familiar with it, the writing is also quite clever and easy to understand. I love the art style of the anime as well. Can't wait for more!

    Entertaining office comedy... In hell.
    I've been mourning the dearth of anime for folks who are out of shool... This fills that gap. The characters are fun and the plots are goofy, the animation is brilliantly done and quite weird. I love the strong traditional japanese elements mixed with modern clture. It's pretty much perfect all around; I wish I knew how to write to the anime studio and let them know that even people on the other ...

    Hell is ever so cruel yet ever so fun to watch
    There are many anime out there in regard to hell and heaven, but rarely do we see a casual side of both world living in "harmony" with one and another, serving as important aspect of a functioning world. Hell, which in many literature played the role of every tormenting destination for those that have sinned, which is what the hell in this anime has displayed, but the difference apart from the ...

    That one random anime that you must watch..
    At first glance, this didn't seem too promising. I dragged my feet through episode one in hopes of understanding this anime later on. By the end of episode two I understood completely, and, on the other hand, started to enjoy the anime thoroughly! This is one of those "peculiar but satisfactory" animes. As someone who has seen Gintama, Hozuki no Reitetsu reminds me precisely of it. It has some ...

    Clever cultural humor
    I have been enjoying these episodes start to finish since I noticed it had started airing (and sadly, have caught up). As others have stated, the humor relies a lot on cultural references and plays on words (reminiscent of Sgt Frog for those who enjoyed that series) as well as elements of Japanese history and folklore. It might be tough for someone unfamiliar with those subtleties, but could ...

    Random chatacter sighting
    Just watching along and realized that the part in episode 7's mortal hell where the girl is leading a boy along by a leash... they are the main characters from my pet monster. Lol. now I need to go back and see if anyone else interesting has wondered through hell.
