Art (8): Very clean, and very good character design there are some times where I think peoples faces look weird and look like fish. But other than that it was pretty good. The thing I like the most about the anime was the color pallet very bright colors and I love bright colors.
Sound (7): To be honest I wasn't paying much attention to the sound I don't even remember what OP or ED sound like, but the jungle sounded like the jungle and the bombs sounds like bombs so I can't complain.
Character (8): The characters were pretty good, things weren't the way they seemed until you really got the see the backgrounds of all the other characters every character had their own background story and they weren't those background stories where is like cry for me. They were real.
Enjoyment (8): I watched this anime with my friend and we are very very into anime so we basically finished it in the same day we watched it I didn't enjoy it in the beginning because to me all survival games are the same, then I started to learn about the characters which is normally my favorite part and the background stories were amazing it connected me to the characters so I found myself caring for them and laughing with them.
(Overall may contain a spoiler)
Overall (7): It would have been higher but my friend made this anime sound like the greatest thing. The final episode is what made me really dislike this anime I know that romance is a strong emotional thing that is in most shows and anime but in a survival game, I like to keep it "Can we just be friends" I don't like when people seek love in this dangerous situation. In real life would you really be looking for a girlfriend while everyone around you is trying to kill you? But I did my best to judge it fairly and gave it a 7. read more

Story (6): To be completely honest the anime is the same thing over and over again, it lacks a plot change until around the 18th episode in. But if you do stay for the first 18 episodes you'll mostly likely enjoy the rest because you start to learn more about Hell Girl herself. Some of the episodes shined more than others but all in all they were decent.
Art (9): It was really nice art nice and sharp the character designs were all different you didn't really see anyone that looked like the same person in the last episode. And everyone looks beautiful, even the old people look good. And Hell Girl looks like the most beautiful thing in the world I always looked forward to her appearance in the episode. To me her eyes are just hypnotic.
Sound (8): I borrowed the DVD of Hell Girl because my friend absolutely loves the series and owns the complete box set and on the title menu before you hit play the music is just epic and addicting, my friend and I would just leave it playing. But the OP and ED fit the series well and they sound good together just slow somber songs that shows the somber feel of the anime.
Character (6): The characters are very basic when you look at the person you can tell what character they are going to be. You can always tell who is going to be who in every anime you watch but in Hell Girl you can really tell who is who, the way the character looks you can basically judge their character.
Enjoyment (7): When I first started watching it I liked it a lot, I liked hearing about peoples problems and why they wanted revenge. But then the stories slowly got slower and slower. To me it went from these juicy episodes (1-10) to like "We ran out of ideas and tried our best." episodes (11-18). But all in all it was decent for the most part.
Overall (7): I'm only giving it a 7 because my friend made it sound like the greatest thing since sliced bread and over the years I've heard nothing but good talk about Hell Girl. But to me it reminds me of the quote "All that glitters is not gold," That's how I felt. I mean towards the end it did get better but too be honest I'm only going to start season 2 and 3 for my friend. If it were up to me I'd probably have stopped watching it a long time ago. But all in all if you're truly into this kind of thing it's the show for you. read more

Story 3 out of 10: There was almost no story line never the less a plot, the conversation between the man and the girl was beyond brief it was a typical whore to man conversation. The whole wear a condom thing.
Art 8 out of 10: Even though its still extremely brief I thought that the art was great, so well drawn and so clear it was very detailed.
Character 4 out of 10: I didn't really catch a chance to learn about the girl so I'm guessing she was your typical underage prostitute that just did what she did for money and a giggle or two.
Enjoyment 9 out of 10: This was my kinda story, I'm into the whole rape/death thing the brutal deaths are my favorite and this is one of those manga where is you like to look at the after affect of torture this is it.
Overall 8 out of 10: I gave it an overall 8 because even though there was no story or even plot just a dying girl I loved the art so much that nothing else even matters.
