There and helping

There's a whole small subgenre of "caseworker in the after life" books, movies, and manga, the sort involving desk jobs, bureaucracy, and sometimes field agents. After Life, the Japanese movie, is one. Beetlejuice is another. I know I've seen at least parts of two different anime series in this genrelet, but can't think what they're called off-hand. Help? Or indeed, suggestions of any other works like these.

I don't think the Divine Comedy counts because even if you count Virgil as a field agent, there's no bureaucracy he's a part of, i would argue.
