Episode 1:

Well that was extremely adequate and very okay. It's not really a dark comedy though with most of the jokes being surprisingly lighthearted. Almost all of the humor is dialogue based, but I like the stylized look of hell and the portrayal of Heaven and hell as mundane bureaucracies does amuse me. It does have a quite a few references to Japanese history and Japanese pop culture which I only partially got so maybe that would make it funnier, I dunno.

This episode didn't have me laughing out loud, but I wasn't bored either, so I'll be watching more. So yeah, pretty much just thought it was alright without being anything special.

^I'm a little surprised to see you didn't one and done this one. I couldn't blame you if you did. It's not particularly exciting and the humor isn't exactly that great. I found enough charm from it not to be bored with it, but it's not something I'd recommend to people without having a good idea of their taste in humor first.

Episode 1

Haha I like the OP. Koko wa Jigoku, Jigoku suteki na Jigoku, Jigoku, Jigo Jigo Jigoku dayo~

The Momotarou part was funny, as for the rest of the episode it was okay. I wasn't bored anyways. I kind of like the overall theme of the show.

Episode 1:
Not what I was expecting and I didn't find myself laughing that hard. It's stuffed to the brim with references for it's comedy and the art style I guess is nice but it's a shame that I wasn't too impressed with the jokes.

It was only okay although the brand of humour is not something I could see myself getting into which is a tad disappointing.

Hm It wasn't boring but it wasn't holy or anything.I was chuckling at some parts and overall it was ok.I'll continue watching since I really like the MC and it kept me moderately entertained throughout the episode.

Episode 2:

This episode started off a bit slow, but it turned to hilarious gold when
I couldn't get enough of his reaction shots and that last bit with the recipe was great too. I wasn't too sure about this show, but this episode was pretty damn good.
