Takimura has a very unusual job: he's one of Hell's authorised personnel - and he's still alive! He's also attracted the attention of none other than the King of Hell himself, Enma, who greets Takimura every workday with the question, "Have you decided to become mine yet?"

Really really good

Honestly I'd say almost one of the best I've read. I gave it a ten because it earned it. In short the length was perfect for the story, the characters appeared cliche at first and not that that's always bad but they came through and more. My favorite part though was probably the world, the realms were really worked out. In so many yaoi the world supernatural or otherwise can just turn out to be a backdrop for the romance and fall really flat, not in this one though it felt like it was story first. You felt like the world existed before the story, while not being overwhelmed with details. Just a really really good balance all in all. It's now on my very short favorites list.

Really really don't keep reading this if you're already interested. What I'm about to talk about was a nice suprise in the story for me so-- Speaking on balance too, the reincarnation was really really nicely handled. Usually not just with reincarnation but any history that story can outshine or compete with the current. It can get things really messy and confused so you don't know which story to root for, but this one was continuitous. It all felt like one story and I've never seen it handled better.

I've just finished reading this manga and I found it worth the time. It wasn't so much as falling in love with the person because they're the reincarnated forms of past loves, but rather of soulmates. It's more like, regardless of how many times they're reincarnated or whoever they are, they'll still be drawn together and spend their lives with each other. I mean...

Much like how Chizuru and Takimura met at the last chapters, even though it'd be much better is Chizuru actually recalls being Hisa.

I think the plot had so much potential, and being 2vol I thought it would be awesome but...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don'r really like the reincarnation plots. I find them really cruel. When Enma confess to Ono it's because he knows he's Kiyo's reincarnation. And then, when Ono meets Chizuru he keeps calling him Hisa. Yeah, he's Enma's reincarnation, but... isn't that cruel? This kinda stories make me suffer because it looks like you can't love a new person just for who them are, and only because they once where the one you loved.

I have finally re-read it.

FACT: I've been meaning to re-read this for like three years now because I have this OCD thing where I place the mangas I've read and like/loved in my Complete List so that one day I'll have a list of all the mangas I want hard copies of. However, when I read this on Thanksgiving 2011, it hurt my heart so much. I was crying. LIKE A BABY. because this manga just brought up such emotion! And after I read it, I couldn't decide if I would want to ever go through this feeling again. But, I really needed to put a dent in my Reading List since there's 1212 mangas I have on there so I decided to read a bunch of mangas this Thanksgiving break. And as luck would have it, I decided to read Jigoku Meguri on Thanksgiving Day three years after the first time I read it. Honestly, I DREADED reading it because of all the emotions that swell up. But this manga is amazing. The plot was unique, and now that I am a seasoned fujoshi I would know very well. I haven't encountered any like this since. That's why this story has a special place in my fujoshi heart and I will always remember it. The mangaka wrote and drew this so well that you could clearly see the expressions of pain, guilt, and suffering the characters go through. And their words are the same too. WHICH is all thanks to the group that scanlated this. Honestly. If it had been shoddily done, then this would've been very hard to have the message come across, so thank you Dangerous Pleasure for a doing a FANTASTIC JOB. To be honest, my only problem is the conclusion being a little lacking. SPOILER: I had hoped that Hisa would still be reflected in his reincarnated self because that would make the bond between him and Takimura that much more prevalent but still it's okay because his reincarnated version looks like he'll treasure Takimura anyway. END OF SPOILER.
Other than that, this was a fantastic read full of emotions.

Where do I even begin with this one? Let's see... It starts with the art. Well-made and very pretty but the characters are still manly in physiqye. But the art is just a bonus. Ideawise, good! It was a complete and utterly intriguing idea for me. The Hell in this manga is not the type of hell I've seen in the supernatural mangas I've danced with. It's a refreshing and learning experience! The characters were good! Wholesome, 'human' enough for us, and not stereotypical. ESPECIALLY TAKIMURA.

Now, the plot. The plot was good. It had a good start since it was inviting to readers; a shaky middle though because the story seemed to take new form (not just in atmosphere)- new take after the conflict between Enma and Takimura began- like it was averting my attention from something and making me look at this manga with a new type of climax - ignoring what could've been the climax to Enma and Takimura's relationship NOT Kayo and Hisa's; and a sad but satisfying end for me.

I honestly felt scammed to making this a ten though because of how the author pulled the 'feel' guns on me in the second volume with the whole plot on how they were actually fated and yet there was uncertainty of meeting again...-sobs- Add to that the sad sob story of Usu and Enma (Ran) and BAM! You get a whole system destroyed by feels.

The first volume -as narrated- made me feel like I was in the middle of the second volume of the story though. Like I was in the middle of a rising action instead of a developing beginning and conflict. But all is forgiven because you learn to anticipate just how the conflict will be resolved.

PLEASE! Stay strong when you read this manga. DON'T cry infront of your computer... you'll end up destroying it with tears. And don't holdback on the tears! You'll 'break' an artery doing so!

...I had to write something for Jigoku Meguri. It's definitely got its issues, but all in all, it's a fantastic, underrated piece. I wish it had gotten an official English release, so I could own a nice hard copy, but I digress.

The art (most of the time) is beautiful. I don't understand the comments about the art not being very nice, since I find it unique and evocative, but I guess that's a matter of taste. I'm not a huge fan of the way all the ukes are drawn so...slender and short, and the semes are drawn so huge, but that's just me, and I can definitely see the appeal. There are also occasional issues with the way faces/angles are drawn (awkward and very "yaoi") but in general, this is a style of art that I really, really appreciate. Worth reading alone for the visuals, IMO, since we don't often get this style in yaoi.

Unlike all the other reviewers, the first volume was definitely my favorite. I liked the uncertainty between Enma and Takimura, and I REALLY liked their hilarious, playful banter. I enjoyed the cheerfulness of the demons and the unexpected sweetness of all the characters. I thought this was going to be a hardcore, sex driven yaoi just because it took place in Hell, but really, it's got a cast of some of the most genuinely sweet, selfless characters I've found in yaoi. I usually don't like over-sweetness (gives me a bit of secondhand embarrassment), but I changed my mind a little while reading this, haha.

I LOVED that Takimura wasn't a sniveling uke in Vol 1, but cool, collected, and totally unafraid of hell/the King of Hell. I loved that he really, truly desired Enma and that Enma would never, ever force him. The second volume **SPOILER**

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
took a turn for the melancholy/over-dramatic and over-romantic, and honestly, I thought the whole destiny bit was kind of a cop-out. We never got to see their relationship grow; instead, they suddenly became very lovey-dovey just because it was fated.

Despite those complaints, the author handled the premise skillfully, and the side story about the Wisdom King and the first Enma was a nice (if slightly depressing) touch. The mangaka really built an elaborate, beautiful world and atmosphere in just 2 volumes, and while I can't say this is OBJECTIVELY the best yaoi I've ever read, it definitely has a special, unique little place in my collection. It's unlike anything else I've read, and I would recommend it to anyone who's tired of the usual rape = love scenarios.

I rarely give 8/9/10 ratings, but JM really deserved this one.

Seriously, a fantastic yaoi- nearly made me cry at the end, I swear. It wasn't too tragic or dark, though... it was just emotionally moving. The story has a lovely nostalgic sort of feel to it, and the elegant art suits it perfectly. Although the drawing isn't what I normally like, it works fantastically with the story. The plot is great, too. It's much deeper than what you'd expect, and it's fresh, original, and makes for a truly beautiful love story. The setting is also unique and well thought out, and the characters are, too- Takimura is definitely one-of-a-kind, and Hisa is really sexy and surprisingly sweet. The smutty parts were also drool-worthy, haha...

Overall just a great manga- definitely recommended! It's moving, sexy, and even humorous at times... I liked it a lot. It was clearly well-designed and written, and it's a unique piece that you won't regret picking up. 100% a 10 out of 10!

I only read it, because the main guy (Enma) was incredibly hot. Honestly, the story left me mouth stale. I t was very unsatisfactory. The concept was original, but it was lacking plot-wise. There could have been more ground to cover and character development (after you know what happens to Enma and you know what happens between THIS Enma and Yukimara). I wish the intercourse was more intense T.T

This story has an interesting setting and vibe. It starts off with a guy who works in hell and has sex with the boss. It gets interesting from then on and then when you read further in, you go like, "oh!! So that's what happened!"
Then you read more and the past is revealed and finally the climax comes in and you go like, "noo..!!" In the end, it's a tear jerking ending and you feel sated at last... It's a good story so for those who decided to drop reading this story half way, then you are so damn blind for not seeing this wonderful manga till the very end!
