Hell is a bureaucracy and business is running smoother than ever thanks to the demonic efficiency of Hoozuki, the chief deputy to Lord Enma, King of Hell. Whether it be offering counselling to Momotarou of Japanese folklore fame or receiving diplomatic missions from the Judeo-Christian hell; the man who runs the show from behind the Lord Enma's imposing shadows is ready to beat down to a bloody pulp any challenges coming his way, metaphorically of course...

As the poster boy for micromanagement and armed with negotiation skills worthy of Wall Street, days spent troubleshooting hell with the sadistic and level-headed Hoozuki are never dull. Full of familiar faces from popular Japanese legends and East Asian mythology working middle management positions, this referential and anachronistic dark comedy set in the underworld brings new meanings to the phrase employer liability. Just how hard can it be to manage employees from hell anyway?


Hoozuki no Reitetsu has been digitally published in English as Hozuki's Coolheadedness by Kodansha Comics USA since March 21, 2017.

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
