Hoozuki no Reitetsu follows Hoozuki, the second in command of Japan Hell. Characters and settings are all heavily influenced and taken from old Buddhist, Taoism, Chinese, Shinto, Japanese and what-have-you legends. If you are not familiar with them, be very prepared to have a terrible time. Otherwise, this manga is a genuinely enjoyable one. Through Eguchi Nastumi's own interpretation, she brings a comical twist to legendary folklore characters such as Momotaro, Hakutaku (BaiZe) and even Satan.

I would personally very much like to emphasize on the fact that your enjoyment of this series will be heavily downplayed if you do not even slightly comprehend Asian folklore read more

Hoozuki is the Deputy Chief to the King of Hell and like most unfortunate secretaries; he does most of the organising and scheduling while also being responsible for unforeseen obstacles while his boss does very little indeed: the life of Hoozuki sounds daunting to say the least. However, unlike most people (because obviously he isn't most people: he's a demon), he doesn't get emotional or violently stressed out, he's just so chill that if you place a giant ice cube on top of his head, it would frost over. Anyways we follow the protagonist around Hell, watching him talk to subordinates and beat the crap read more

Both feature the daily lives of mystical beings. Saint Oniisan focuses on Jesus and Buddha, while Hozuki is about the staff of Japanese hell, but they have a similar sense of humor regarding things that should seem completely ordinary. Both bring in other famous mythological figures and are a lot of fun to read. 
Both have an extremely unique way of story-telling. Not only that, but they are super modern, and have their own sense of humor.
