THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Yay, this anime is back in full force and I like the comedy of it.

The episode featured a lot of Enma Daiou and I can't help but laugh a bit at his character interactions with Hoozuki. The Underworld/Hell still looks creative as I had remembered.

There's still all kind of weird stuff down there :o

An unexpected but welcome sequel. I missed this show. OVA4 subs please.

Wow a Turn A reference. A lot of background on Hoozuki. Izanami's a cutie. Peach Maki ED is always a nice touch..

Time for more! This first episode was entertaining as usual, we got to learn more about Hoozuki's past, sacrificing him was definitely not the right decision hehe.

So it was Hozuki's idea to separate the regions of hell, So its really appropriate for him to be the Chief of Staff

Hozuki's final words with the villagers made me laugh

I like the ED song of Peach Maki

YES YES YES! This is back and is as good as ever. Still amazing art, great animation, catchy music and i just personally love the decorative designs and color palette.

Hoozuki as a kid is the cutest thing everrrr <3, besides mean kid Hoozuki just makes the evil seem cute and all. Also, great to see that the creepy talking Nasubi's creations are back hahaha.

Overall, the fun was delivered.

Love it! Finally got to see how Hoozuki came into existence.

I'm now stuck with the painful choice of waiting every week for a new episode or waiting for it to finish so I can binge.

Heck yes! Missed this show so much. Dark humour laced within an effortlessly fun show that not only cracks you up but teaches you history, mythology and the importance of merging past with modern advances at the same time.

I wasn't expecting a second season, but I'm thrilled that it's here. I'm glad the humor and animation hasn't changed!

I love how as a kid hoozuki promised he would personally punish those who sacrificed him. We got to know a little more about hoozuki and his involvement in the development or modernization of hell. I wasn't expecting this to get a sequel but I'm so glad it did and I want more.

I finished binging the first season today so the differences in the animation is pretty distinct x'D It's not as beautiful as when Wit made it, but Deen is not disappointing.

I'm glad the humor's still there tho v3v9
Another great anime for this season!

Loved it~ Great to see Hoozuki back. He was so cute as a child, but sad how he died. Although even as a child, he was the same XD Missed the dark humor and the fun cast.

Those renovated pillars though. Such art. I love the meows haha. Pretty sure Izanami didn't want the people to remain there at all, but Hoozuki just covers them up with those cats. Still less annoying than her own idea, which was the goldfish plants LOL

Another good ED by the idol Peach Maki! Loved the creepy atmosphere.

Hoozuki is ruthless as always. I love him. He was unbelievable as a human kid too.

I feel sorry for Izanami. She has to live with those upgrades.

The opening isn't as great as "koka wa jigoku" but it still good. Great episode.

I'm so happy one of my favorite shows is back and as amusing as ever. Hoozuki as a child was so precious, my heart was about to explode. But still ruthless as ever. His background story was quite interesting, I'm so glad we got to see part of it.

Great start overall. Really funny and I liked that it introduced new characters straight away. Loved the new opening and the ending visuals with Maki as well.

Hey, why were those cats saying Meow instead of Nyan? Only in Hell...

I love the humor on this. It's not really LOL, it's more "bemused."

And it's one third references I know, one third references I kind of heard of, and one third references I want to find out more about.
...but then again, I unironically like Warau Salesman.

They are Washiki Zarashi, a type of yokai, not demon.

It is the translator decision to translate it to English I guess since in English the cat sound is "Meow" while in Japanese it is "Nyan".

The gold fish plant would be Hozuki idea not Izanami though.

Hoozuki succeed in doing his "revenge" to the villager. That's one epic promise for sure. Plus he kindly add some "design" in doing his revenge using those scary cats head.

Perhaps the first time I saw this series, not knowing what to look at, I felt that the narrative was very calm and almost compassed. Now, however, there is much more comicity and the relationships between the characters are less formal. The beginning I like, because it seems less illogical, but much more reasoned about scanning the events shown, or because the Hoozuki past passes, who knows! However I like how the series started. Maybe I miss something, but I see some of the characters I had not noticed before, maybe I have to see the previous season to take my doubts and watch, now that I've noticed, even the OADs.

Wasn't expecting we'd get Hoozuki's origin. Nice to see the Zashiki Warashi still doing their thing.

Hopefully fourth OVA subs soon.

Pretty stylish OP & ED.
Bit more Westernized feel this time (probably mostly from subs).
Some characters I don't recall at all, but mostly funny episode.

Somehow the first season became one of my most favourite anime. I'm really glad to the sequel. My only complain - not enough Hakutaku!

3 and a half years later a second season.
Pretty good introduction, since I don't remember much from the first.
Really like the ED

I think I already like this season more than the last...the comedy just worked better this episode than it has in any of the previous ones. Maybe it has something to do with the new director- anyway, I like what he's doing with the series.

Studio Deen are spitting out great anime like fire...I like a lot of their stuff and they are a pretty versatile studio, so all in all, I'm pretty happy!
What I am surprised about is how good it looks; if I hadn't found out by accident I would have had no idea there was a studio change.

Anyway, I'm totally in love with Izanami's design!
Also loved kid Hozuki- his revenge was hilarious, and it was great to see a bit of his past.

The OP and ED this season are also tons better imo. I'll never forget what happened to those fish at the end of last season...

The new season looks and sounds great (digging both the opener and closer). Hoozuki's back story was really fitting.

Amazing, i forgot to watch the second season, and today started to watch the third, then, today i start to watching the second too!!! lol

Well, in this first episode was interesting because we discover the Hoozuki´s origin how human and the resentment/ira for the people that "killed" him!!!
