Originally, Hozuki no Reitetsu is an original manga by Natsumi Eguchi. It is also the mangaka’s only popular title. The anime will begin on 9th January 2014 and will tell the story of Satan’s deputy in the underworld of Japan’s mythology. Hozuki takes care of everything when the worst creature, Yama, is absent and he is also responsible for the execution of all evildoing at such moments. Can he keep the monsters and mythological beasts under control?
