Synopsis

Somewhere in the vast sea of the Internet, there's a website that can only be accessed at the stroke of midnight. Known as the Jigoku Tsushin, rumor has it that if you post a grudge there, the Jigoku Shoujo will appear and drag whoever torments you into the inferno. Very little is known about the girl - all we know for sure is that she lives with her equally enigmatic grandmother, that three magical straw dolls accompany and serve her, and that whenever a posting on the Jigoku Tsushin moves her, she becomes the Jigoku Shoujo.

Jigoku Shoujo takes place in modern Japan where the internet has filled the lives of many people in this bustling world of technology and sins. This anime portrays the cruelty of the human race, and shows that there are many people in this world that suffer terribly and that, indefinitely, most people wish those that are making their lives miserable would just die and go to hell. And, of course, Jigoku Shoujo, or Hell Girl, is there to exact their revenge.

The storyline is wonderful. The anime itself is mainly episodic, and each episode focuses mainly on one person, and the suffering they're experiencing due to read more

Having filled Japan with rumors that aren't taken seriously at first Jigoku Shoujo is an avenger.
Sometimes reality hits you in the face when you thought it was sweet, and you end up in tears.
Fear, Hatred, Anger and revenge, this is an unbreakable chain that represents the dark side of humanity and it is Jigoku Shoujo who weilds that chain.

This anime has a great story augmented by the episodic chain that reveals smaller stories evolving around the suffering or others. I have enjoyed it from the start because of its supernatural elements that aren't just thrown up your eyes but instead they slowly come into play. read more

There is a fine line between revenge and justice. Death Note has Light (Kira) hell bent on bringing justice and order to a new world by killing the criminals and ruling by fear. Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) will exact revenge upon your enemy at the price of your soul. At first, right and wrong seems pretty clear cut for both anime; bad guys get punished but as the serieses progress, the lines get blurred. The person in the wrong isn't always the one getting killed/sent to hell.
Jigoku Shoujo and Shugofumi involves interaction of normal human life and the supernatural. The two of them features different sets of characters and different cases in each episode, but the story ultimately led to the main characters who happens to be the key in all of what's happening.
