Wooooow this show is boring. beyond boring. Hozuki no Reitetsu is supposed to be some kind of weird comedy show set in hell and I can say that it does extremely well at what it is supposed to be, while I was watching it I was convinced it was a joke and that I was really in hell. The show doesn’t look really great, but that is not such a big issue considering it is just supposed to be funny and not its look is of little importance. What does matter a bit though is the awful voice over, although to be fair I’m uncertain if it is the fault of the voice actor or the terrible lips animation given in the show.

Into stuff that matters a bit more, Hozuki no Reitetsu is a very slow comedy show that I couldn’t understand the humour one bit. It must be because of the cultural difference or something, because I was unable to understand a single joke, most of them I figure I understood what the meaning was behind the action, but I could never understand what was funny in anything that was told in the whole 25 minutes or so…that’s a huge flat for a show who’s whole purpose is to be funny. Usually I’d declare something to defend the show, something along the line of “I figure this is simply not my kind of humour”, but the truth is, I think the show is just stupid and completely fails at make anything funny, I don’t believe it to be any hope in it and I dare anyone to tell me they could really enjoy this show more than any other that came out this season. I won’t be blogging or watching Hozuki no Reitetsu, I’ll leave it to masochist to discuss.
