posted on by Karen Ressler
An official website for the iOS and Android game based on Natsumi Eguchi's Hozuki's Coolheadedness (Hōzuki no Reitetsu) manga opened on Friday, revealing that Taito is developing the game. The website also shared a key visual. Taito has not revealed a release window, but confirmed that the game will be free to play with in-game items.
Eguchi launched the manga in Kodansha's Morning magazine in 2011. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally in English, and it describes the story:
In the afterlife, there exists Heaven and Hell. Hell consists of the Eight Greater Hells and the Eight Cold Hells, which are further divided into 272 subdivisions. Spearheading the seemingly endless, multifarious affairs in this gargantuan Hell is but one Fierce God, King Enma's first aide, Hozuki. Between this cool-headed sadist and his colorful band of peers, every day is a riot in Hell! And though this book might make Hell seem like a happening place, please try to behave during life!
The manga has inspired three 13-episode television anime seasons. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired beginning in January 2014, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video. Sentai Filmworks then streamed the second and third seasons on HIDIVE in fall 2017 and spring 2018, respectively. The manga also inspired four OADs that shipped with the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 24th volumes of the manga.
