This is the story of hell. The hell is overflowing with people and Hoozuki, the first adviser of Enma Daiou, is super busy inspecting the torture and captivation of the deceased in this world. He gets help from many creatures, like his childhood friends, demon twins, or ghosts and sometimes new friends, and everything will be shown once again.
It’s baaaaackkk! Hozuki’s Coolheadedness is one of my favorite gag anime of all time and the second season will not disappoint. If you are new to Hozuki, then I highly, HIGHLY suggest watching the first season as soon as you can. Set in Japanese hell, the series follows titular character Hozuki, who is super sadistic and just about perfect in every way (did I tell you already that I’m actually in love with him?). The series has a lot of parody on Japanese pop culture and current issues, so some of the jokes may not land for those of you not living in Japan (although the official subs may give some background information). However, there is more than enough fun to make up for that no matter where you are from.
The first episode of the second series covers a story I’ve been waiting to see: the origin of Hozuki-sama himself. Seeing him as a human was just too much, I was grinning like a madman throughout the whole episode.
Anyway, my first impression is probably not helpful because all I can do is give you the following chart:
Did you watch the first series?
If yes -> Watch Season 2 now!
If no -> Binge Season 1 now! Then watch Season 2!
I’ve always been on the lookout for comedy series every season. That’s why I’m so delighted that the hijinks in hell are back! I watched the first season of Hozuki no Reitetsu and I had a ton of laughs with it, so I’m super glad that the enjoyment level didn’t seem to change upon the opening of this second season! It also immediately hooked me on its premise because it first focused on Hozuki’s origins, and how hell was like before he became the Chief of Staff! I’m expecting that every episode will be hilariously interesting, and will feature more of the old characters as well as new ones!
