    Part time abridger? What series to you abridge?

    And ohoho, I can’t really explain why, but I absolutely loved this first episode! It seemed to be just the right blend of craziness and smart conversational humor and had me laughing at every turn. I’m also a bit of a Japanese mythology/history nerd, so having an inkling of knowledge as to what some of the characters were talking about probably helps my case as well. And even without all that, Hozuki is an extremely charming main character and ‘cute in his own way’ as Enma-sama put it. His eternally sour expression is great, especially when you find out that he’s actually the type of person who enjoys life for the most part.

    The background art was also really unique! I’m excited for more episodes.

      I love animes with this kind of art. Have you watched Mononoke? It’s also very good for art like this and people who are Japanese Mythology fans.

    I’m glad they’re kind enough to explain some background so audiences who doesn’t know much about Japanese’ view of hell can at least have some basic understanding. I read the manga so I knew, but I was wondering if they can pull it off correctly. I’m glad they did.

      Maybe I should try reading the manga after I’m done covering the anime. I really like Hoozuki as a main character, he’s charming ^^

    I didn’t fully understand how much the Softbank reference was (even when reading the manga) until I saw this…
