Hoozuki is a criminally underrated and underviewed clever comedy series set in Jigoku. Def recommend for fans of mythology and comedy.
A clever comic take on mythology, rich in culture and wit. A good sense for punchline delivery will always provide laughs.
fun references and gateway to googling and educating yourself on japanese folklore (or at least i did that cuz i like history and am a nerd)
Extremely humorous take on Japanese and European interpretations of the afterlife. Great visual aesthetic, but rather niche appeal.
the main and side characters made for a fun and entertaining romp even with my lacking knowledge in Japanese folklore
Japanese mythology, different mood and still underestimated.
Alright anime, I really like the comedies and stuff that they do.
