Why aren't you watching Hoozuki no Reitetsu /a/?
>>
I am. It's pretty great.
>>
It's the daily life of working in Japanese Hell
>>
>>102014127
Not enough cute girls in it.
>>
Too Japanese
>>
Too hipster
>>
I'm not a corporate worker in his 30's to relate to this.
>>
>>102014329
>>102014266
Relate to Satan then
>>
>>102014127
dropped after first half of first episode. I did not understand his japanese jokes
>>
>>102014421
You don't know about the softbank commercials? They have gaijin and everything.
>>
>>102014421
Second episode had less Japanese jokes
>>
I like it but as said, too japanese. Probably a truckload of jokes going over my head.
>>
>>102014127
it's the most japanese show I think ive watched, and I've seen SZS

exactly my thought
>>
>>102014826

Was the first thing, that came to my mind. And I can't get it out of my head now.
>>
Truly hell knowns no mercy
>>
>>102014765
I dunno, I found Joshiraku to have a much harsher "you must be this Japanese to get these jokes" requirement.

Still watching and enjoying it.
I'm ready for Peach Maki and that fucking cat.
>>
It's pretty shitty. Will probably drop. I'd keep watching it if I were into little boys.
>>
>>102014127
I actually worked in a bureaucracy so it's not so funny, and my Japanese folklore powerlevel is too low.
>>
lets talk about the best character and why its shiro
>>
>>102014127
Reference anime isn't funny.

That's not Miss Mustard.

I'm loving it even though I don't get half of the jokes.

Atmosphere is everything.

So true. Though the second half of the episode wasn't as good as usual, Beelzebub was... well, I don't know, I didn't really like his character.
>>
>>102027523
For me it's like when you're on public transport and overhear someone talking about something and listen in. It's great for when you're a little drowsy.
>>
>>
>>102014127
Do I look like a faggot to you? Of course I am watching it.
>>
>>102031004
huh, good in episode english
>>
The maids were damn cute so was the idol
>>
im proud to get most of the jokes in this, my japanese folklore game pretty strong
>>
>>102031100
I want the cuties in the OP. You know the goth loli and the other girl. To appear.

I really should make more screenshots later

Isn't that meant to be a reference to Das Leben Der Anderen?
>>
>>102033271
How so? I don't really remember it except from the overall plot.
>>
>>102034186
The bit where he's wondering if anyone who listens to that piece of music can truly be evil. I can't remember if he writes that in his journal or says it to his wife, but it still reminds me of it.
>>
>>102031122
Most of the jokes do not rely on folkloric knowledge though.

Also this is comedy AOTY.
>>
It's obvious why it isn't very popular here. To summarize:

>You must be this Japanese to understand


.


>Average /a/sie
>>
Because it was boring as shit
>>
>>102035564
Who the HELL are you supposed to be?
>>
>>102035498
But it's really not. A rudimentary knowledge of Buddhist mythology and Japanese folklore will make people understand most of the jokes.
Saying that the average /a/non thinks that it requires being Japanese to understand would be more accurate.
>>
>>102035624
>A rudimentary knowledge of Buddhist mythology and Japanese folklore will make people understand most of the jokes.
You have a high opinion of the average /a/er if you think they have a rudimentary knowledge of Buddhism and Japanese folklore.
>>
>>102034535
Oh, that. But isn't the "someone who do X can't truly be evil" fairly common in many media? I feel like I've heard it a lot of times but can't say where.
>>
>>102035791
What I'm saying is that it's easy to get those. But yeah, I know that despite watching shows made by a different people and culture then theirs, the average /a/non makes absolutely no effort to learn some of that culture.
>>
>>102035888
Man /a/non is such a stupid name like jesus christ.
>>
>>102035927
How new are you?
>>
>>102027523
Too true. I look forward to this every week
>>
>>102037334
Joshiraku all over again
>>
>does this look like a motherfucking game?
>>
>>102038848
Seriously, even if someone doesn't understand the jokes, just seeing Hoozuki's faces and Shiro makes the show good.
>>
>>
>>102039440

Ah, so this is THIS episode, how sad.

>>102041118
Well, going from that to being an award-wining author, I've seen worse.

>>102041337
Yeah, you're right.

13 volumes.

Only two are translated.
>>
Too Japanese for me, will pick it up when it's finished airing.
>>
>>102014127
Doesn't it have okay sales too?
>>
Fantastic ending.

>>102041708
Yep.
>>
Today's episode was hilarious.
>>
I was eager to drop this hard at the beginning of the season because of the unusual setting and absence of cute girls but I found myself surprisingly entertained. Although most of the references are hard to get the humour works for me. Not a masterpiece but one of the better shows I didn't expect this season.
