For prior conversation in anticipation of this show, see http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-984809/hoozuki-no-reitetsu-season-2-anticipation




Synopsis

Hell is a bureaucracy, and business is running smoother than ever thanks to the demonic efficiency of Hoozuki, chief deputy to Lord Enma, the King of Hell. Whether offering counsel to the Momotarou of Japanese folklore or receiving diplomatic missions from the Judeo-Christian Hell, the demon who runs the show from behind the king's imposing shadow is ready to beat down any challenges coming his way into a bloody pulp. Metaphorically, of course...

The poster boy for micromanagement and armed with negotiation skills worthy of Wall Street, Hoozuki no Reitetsu follows the sadistic and level-headed Hoozuki as he spends his days troubleshooting hell. With an abundance of familiar faces from popular Japanese legends and East Asian mythology working middle management positions, this referential and anachronistic dark comedy brings new meaning to the phrase "employer liability." Just how hard could it be to manage employees from hell, anyway?

Glad to have this series back! Its available in HiDive for anyone curious.

I feel somewhat bad for those villagers. Hindsight is 20/20, but they picked a really bad choice for a sacrifice (not that any choice would good). For their actions, Hozuki turned them into perpetually chained and burning hallway decorations. Even with their new arrangement, there is no respite in sight. Amazing how cheerful this show is when depicting this messed up situation.


Also interesting that Hozuki and Enma played a big role in changing Japanese Hell. In comparison to its current state, its previous iteration looked like a playground.

Surprised this thread is so quiet, I think this was the best pick up of all the Sentai titles

I'm curious about the two new little girls, with the power to make Hozuki sit through an idol battle show

The girls were really funny .
And they finally explained why Hoozuki and Hakutaku hate each other. The reason is pretty stupid (as expected )

Oh my gosh the zashiki warashi are too funny!
I laughed so hard at the mixed signals, and the call center leveling. Do your best, Suzuki-san!!

Episode 5


I sure don't remember this character showin' up from last season, but Ono no Takamura is a nice addition to this cast. Even if he's no demon.
