Loads of anime have a hard time being original, espacially in the comedy genre. Hoozuki no Reitsu has been a fresh breath of air in my eyes. This is my first review, so take it easy on the criticism :)

Story: 7
The anime is episodic and does not follow a story with a clear end goal. It revolves around the funny cast and their interactions. The consept they used with the multiple hells and meetings between their respected cheif was brilliant.

Art: 8
The art is just awesome. The way they incorporate old classic japenese art into the background is fantastic. The animation is good for a read more

This must be the best anime I have ever seen, i't has really good characters, that are well made, with very unique personalities. The jokes that are shown are hilarious, most of them make allusions to other shows or movies, they also have that dark humor (that I personally LOVE)
The story is mainly what the synopsis says but more enjoyable than what it sounds like, believe me.
This is by far the best anime lately, and the opening is so catchy! After watching it you won't regret it, and if you like japanese stuff I think you would like it even more. So if you want read more

Recommendations

I guess another derivative have spawn from hell. You got both main character that has versatility to do different task and some stuff for jokes and laughs. Though Hoozoki no Reitetsu is like Dante's Divine Comedy that elaborates pessimistic virtues in hell while Gintama that has more variety and spices in its series that displays mostly realism.
It has dark humor with extreme violence and pop culture in it. They both have a topic on demons but Hoozuki is focused on the Eastern side while Azazel-san is more on the Western side.

Opening Theme

"Jigoku no Sata mo Kimi Shidai (地獄の沙汰も君次第)" by Jigoku no Sata All Stars (Hiroki Yasumoto, Takashi Nagasako, Yumiko Kobayashi, Tetsuya Kakihara, Touko Aoyama, Eri Kitamura x YOUR SONG IS GOOD)

Ending Theme

#1: "Ookina Kingyou no Kinoshitade (大きな金魚の樹の下で)" by Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus (東京混声合唱団) (ep 1)
#2: "Parallax View (パララックス・ビュー)" by Sadesper Record feat. Sumire Uesaka (eps 2-7, 9-13)
#3: "Caramel Peach Jam 120% (キャラメル桃ジャム120%)" by Peach Maki (Sumire Uesaka) (ep 8)
