Following the events of Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori, Ai Enma, the Hell Girl, has disappeared. Her former companions decide to lead normal lives, until their absent mistress returns to them with a new companion, and in a way that none of them anticipated.

Yuzuki Mikage is a normal schoolgirl who soon comes to understand the Hell Girl on an intimate level. During a dream-like trance in the bathtub, Ai kisses Yuzuki and possesses her. So when Yuzuki's friend decides to type in the name of their teacher in the Hell Correspondence website, Ai makes use of Yuzuki's body to accomplish her own task of ferrying the teacher's soul to hell. Yuzuki is disturbed by her new circumstances and wonders why she was chosen to continue Ai's work. Unfortunately for her, the Hell Girl and her assistants resume operation of Hell Correspondence, and she is dragged along for the ride towards hell itself.

So, I just finished binge-watching the third season of "Jigoku Shoujo" and I gotta spill some thoughts on it.

First off, this season delves deep into some heavy psychological stuff. Like, we're talking about the kind of inner turmoil that messes you up big time. The main deal is Enma Ai, this supernatural chick who's all about dishing out justice by ferrying souls to the afterlife. Only twist? She's gotta use this schoolgirl as her vessel 'cause she's body-less. Yeah, it gets pretty wild.

Now, let's talk vibes. The music? Emotional rollercoaster, man. It sets this melancholic yet captivating mood that sticks with you. And those sound ...

Warning, minor spoilers.

Oh, Hell Girl: Three Vessels, you really are a unique season, aren't you? I’ll admit that Hell Girl is not for everyone, what not with how repetitive a good chunk of the episodes is. Going into season three, I wasn’t expecting anything different from the first two seasons: each episode, someone gets sent to hell and the series has a bit of plot progression or character development. We saw this a lot more during season two with the principle cast being given proper histories as opposed to just being Ai’s companions. It was something that I was hoping to see more of this ...

Episodes about children and schools and shit were the ones i'd usually quickly skip through in first two seasons, and you want me to watch a season almost entirely comprised of those?

If you start watching it expecting to see a third season of Jigoku Shoujo, i have bad news for you, you will find only a pretty boring and repetitive school drama with lore ...
