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 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 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.
