I really like this now that the reporter and his daughter have a more major role! It seems like a battle between good and evil

I caught hints of the aunt's craziness early on, so no major twist there- I just didn't realize she was ax crazy. Or suffering multiple personality disorder. Those were kinda "Oh, crap." revelations, there. ;)

I'm finding a certain liking to the whole concept of using the Hell Correspondance to keep oneself alive; I dunno, maybe it's the idea that in the end, it really was an unavoidable problem, and that just kinda ties things up neatly.
Just my two cents.

So Mina's mother didn't jump off a cliff but instead was hacked to pieces by Mina's aunt? Creepy.

I wonder why Mina's mother was trying to leave the island again..

I suppose she pulled the string out of instinct, but when she died she might not have ended up in Hell. However, by saving her temporary and fleeting life (who knows, she could have an accident and die the next day, within the year, etc.), she now faces an ETERNITY of suffering...

Gaaaah and just when im considering dropping the series, it pulls out an episode like this! Very creepy, the reporter playing a more vital role and getting more air time which someone else mentioned. The aunt was creepy especially with the aunts multiple disorder thing going on D: i was like wow....

I agree with most people here in that this is the first one where it was basically she pulls the string, or she dies... although either way she's getting an 'eternity' of hell whenever she dies.. and that could be whenever!

Well looks like im going to have to keep watching, just wish the show wasn't so inconsistent.. or at least it is that way for me!

It's agonizing that he's getting closer and closer and closer every episode without actually breaking through and saving someone.

But through all that, the two Shibatas are slowly becoming my favorite characters in the series. Just what is Tsugumi's connection to Ai?

The aunt was unstable and had a sister complex. She did not want to lose her niece, which represented her sister. The aunt also did not want the niece to be hurt the same way as her older sister. The mother that die, I guess she wanted to flee the island, because it was a boring shit hole. The niece wants to pull the string to kill off the aunt... wow, the niece is crazy O_O I only agree with the niece, when she did it in self defense.

I liked how Mina and the aunt were closer before and participated together in the school festival. Sad.

I miss the punishment scenes. That's my favourite part of each episode but now they cut them out :/

okay so the aunt was a siscon and had mental problems cool. I thought the reporter would be dead when they pushed him luckily not but I feel sad for him solving it for first time and then unexpected event let the girl still make the deal but okay this time was pretty good reason this would be 1 of the cases that I would agree on sending someone to hell.

I miss this punishment scene allot but the anime is still cool. this way it more going in a story way now. but was that small gate you saw at the entrance of the cave not the actual gate way to hell? oh well I guess we find out sooner or later.

Wow...this is the first episode in this series to actually make me feel creeped out, sad, and sympathetic.

Creeped out by the fact that the aunt was crazy with her multiple personality disorder playing the role as her niece's mom (aka her sister). Lol at first i actually thought like some crazy stuff would happen and that voice was actually the spirit of the dead sister but i digress.

Secondly i feel sad because of the way everything turned out, like they could've lived happily if for one that crazy aunt dint kill her sister. Yes maybe she would of left the island but she probably would've came back to visit from time to time. It shouldn't have ended this way :(

And thirdly i feel a little sympathetic toward the aunt because she was just trying to protect her niece from experience her sister felt and i also feel bad about her mental disorder.

Well, so much for the moral ambiguity, we're going back to the crazies.

No complains here though. Still, the whole setup was messed up, so there's no one to really blame. I'm really appreciating this show for being able to pull off these kinds of setups so much.

I really like the way this anime is taking, I mean, I knew that it could have not been that episodic, a plot, for being the goodness of 3 seasons, there must've been!

Also, I like the change from evil to good.
The good thing is that you can never, and really never, blame anyone for pulling that string, and for, instead, try to convince to not.

At the beginning, I thought Enma was not happy for what he is doing, but in these last episodes it seems that she can't wait for dragging people to hell...
maybe se has some sorts of obligations.. I dunno

Every episode is more frustrating than the other one. We finally had Hajime convince people that it was the wrong decision, but of course they just had to be FORCED into a situation where it was a matter of life and death. I really dislike that aspect. "Hey, you can die now or you can die later and go to Hell!" How lovely. 2/5.

I wonder if all three seasons will be just this...

It's funny how Hajime never manages to make people give up on vengeance. lol

He might've had good intentions, but the Shibata reporter guy is quickly becoming my most hated character in this anime, or at least my most hated recurring character. Please go back to your own life and let humans do whatever they want. How nosy. In one episode he talked like he wanted to bring down Jigoku Shojo. I doubt a human being can stop some sort of supernatural entity that is hundreds of years old. I do wonder what will happen to them though.

Dern. Thought they would finally prevent a revenge for once but noopppeeeeee...fucking trolls

Meh episode. Just another one and not much that stands out

I like how the guy and girl in the Hell Correspondence are noticing Shibata though

And also, this episode shows exactly why I detest yanderes. Batshit insane

Really good episode, the twist was pretty obvious though. I suspected that the sister was murdered by the aunt pretty early on.

The way she killed her was really messed up, chopping her legs off so she literally wouldn't be able to leave. Also the fact that shes been talking to her dead body for years was just really creepy lol..

Holy shit was that aunt a nutcase. Now she definitely deserved to die. Recently there haven't been many victims of the covenant who have done anything wrong.
Nothing to see here.
