Loads of anime have a hard time being original, espacially in the comedy genre. Hoozuki no Reitsu has been a fresh breath of air. I mean, how often do you see the king of hell being treated like a little punk. Hoozuki is a badass.
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 read more

This is one of those animes that just make you happy.
I have to say I quite like the layout of the series and how it's made up of lots of mini stories.
It makes it easy to watch and you can just play it whenever you just feel like having a laugh.
Also throughout this series you come to love the main character.
He's got dark humour, always seems to know what he's doing and is literally the strongest and most sadistic person in hell (although maybe I'm not making him sound appealing).
I would highly recommend watching the series, it's something with character so that read more

I just finished watching this anime and I have to say that it's brilliant! Art and animation etc are all great. Story is minimal, its an episodic anime but it has quite an interesting cast.

I pissed myself at some of the jokes but many of them are very Japanese orientated and if you aren't really knowledgeable about the culture a lot of these will fly right over your head.

When I saw the first episode I was a little confused; it's a somewhat strange anime., but I ended up getting hooked by the second episode.

The opening and ending credits are quite weird but also read more

The afterlife consists of Heaven and Hell. The Japanese hell is divided into Eight Fiery Hells and Eight Frozen Hells, while those are further subdivided into 272 sections. In both our world and the afterlife, proper governing requires sound decision-making. Unfortunately, there are far more charismatic leaders than there are wise decision-makers. The Great King Enma, may be the ruler of all the above, however Hoozuki, the chief of staff to his greatness is the one owning the attributes of both charismatic leader and wise decision-maker. And even after all of the minor torture, experiments and cold blooded pranks his assistant puts Enma through, it read more

Recommendations

Anime: Gintama
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.

Anime: Gugure! Kokkuri-san
Both shows have a similar feel as far as tone and comedy goes. Not to mention the supernatural element. Although Kokkuri-san also seems to have a tear jerker aspect. I actually feel that the best way to describe Kokkuri-san is Barakmon meets Hoozuki no reitetsu. Anyhow, just based on what I've seen, I think that if you liked one, you'll like the other.

Anime: Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san. (TV)
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.

Anime: Saint☆Oniisan (Movie)
Both are comedies which take roots in religion. While Hoozuki no Reitetsu is about hell as viewed in Japan, Saint Onii-san is about Buddha and Jesus.

Anime: Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Both are comedies with references to japanese culture and other anime. The main character is an adult and the anime is happening mostly at the place of their jobs.
