Genre:Romance In reality:4/10 romance

A man falls into hell to atone for his sins and fell in love with the devil in charge of him. Although it says romance in the genre, this manga would be better if they had expanded on the romance instead of just ending it so quickly. The story is actually quite interesting, very different from a normal manga. Some characters r developed, some are not that well, but overall, great manga with the exception of its romance part, which can be better done. Huge potential but the author decided to threw it away by ending it so soon. Rather disappointing in terms of whether it matches with the genres.

Despite the not all that uncommon topic, this was an at times surprisingly original story.

I was a bit annoyed at what was considered a sin sufficient to go to hell, though:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Rintarou thinks his sin is running from a girl after he'd found out her father was abusing her. He claims he could have treated the girl better, but doesn't think he could have helped her. What the hell? This is yet another story where people don't think of calling the police, or child support, or *anything*. Ridiculous. To keep with the theme of the story, that's a perfect example of the sin of inaction, both by the protagonist, and by the attitude that made the mangaka overlook this option in his writing.

Suicide is considered a sin? Seriously?

Finally, I found the ending a bit weak.

A readable ecchi but it is not quite that

I mostly stick to american/european comics when it comes to comics about sex (like the award winning Sex Criminals) as japanese ones tend to be generic or highly creepy or just porn by volumes 2 at the latest so that i am writing a review speaks volumes of the quality shown here.
Love in Hell may not be a masterpiece but the best this kind of publication has to offer as it is eventually a heartfelt drama about child abuse and well just read it. The artist is memorable, the satire works very well and it even takes the genre apart to a point. The gore is high octane and a fun aspect of the story but probably the reason why the manga did not go on longer as this narrative is ultimately just too dark to survive the target audience the publisher probably intended. The end should have come later as the world/designs are way too good to be left alone but the reason behind Senkawa´s torment is well done and i liked the cute romance thus i would read a sequel.
Move on to The Penisman by ISHIDA Sui(known for Tokyo Ghoul which i also reviewed) for another violent ecchi that puts story first or Ike! Inachuu Takkyuubu as it is funny and pay the classic Dr. Slump a visit.

A word of caution, this manga is not for the feeble minded and this is said by someone who does not like gore too much and despises torture. As a reference I totally hated Domina no Do, complete trash of a manga (in my opinion).

I've read Dante's Inferno many times already (for those who thought about it, I meant the book not the game, read more bigrazz) and it is my preferred part of Alighieri's work but... this manga has some disturbing parts and I found them all quite interestingly hilarious. Probably my mind broke when I saw a couple of screenshots of a hentai about corpses (you dont want to know, TRUST ME), compare to that this is nothing. This is quite a fresh manga, totally original while keeping the standards of a (disturbing) good story. It ends quite nicely, actually I would've wanted to read more xD. Give it a shot.

Keep in mind this is HELL

Although this is classified as ecchi, gore and torture, keep in mind that this story takes place in HELL. And this is not a modern day shounen, "we're not the same as the 'Old Hell' devils *drinks a milkshake*"-interpretation. This is an old fashioned, "You were sent to hell? Ok, you're undeniably guilty of a terrible crime and now you gotta pay the price Old Testament-style."

If you can accept that, you'll find some great characters and subtle usage of plot here.

This is so original, funny, and fresh. Sure it says ecchi, but I thought it had way more plot then that. It is worth reading, and it's very addictive! (even though not many chapters ((4 now?)) have been translated yet!)
