Finally I finished tihs season, almost a year. I like more the first season, but love these last episodes. Am I the only one who think that it was the work of the spider? If Takuma had killed that way, would become "Jigoku Shouju"? Alright, to watch the third season, this time in a month, I hope.

ai burnt out the whole village for her revenge. because the ai's hatred was deep-seated, the spider believed that the torture in hell could never make ai truly understand her wrong-doing, therefore, he made ai the hell girl. in this way, ai would be able to see all kinda hatreds and where would vengeance truly end. the spider hoped that ai would finally coming up an answer to her own hatred and earned her moksha or redemption.

(sorry, if you don't really understand what i'm saying, but it is hard for me to put the concept of karma in english words.)

Superb ending to a superb show. Had a great time watching it, it became one of my favorites, especially after those last 3/4 episodes. A masterpiece 10/10

good ending to season 2 and it seems Ai is still alive cause she send a message on someones mobile but why did she turn in a cherry dafug and did she really finish her task as hell girl like the spider said then i am seriously wonder what season 3 will bring.

well i didn't expect Kikuri to be the spider or controlled by it i was wondering where the spider was but not expected this but even when the spider came out Kikuri was still in the boat to hell so there is something else with her to i guess

what happened with Tsugumi she appeared for 1 episode say some strange things and never comes back.

up to season 3^^

I'm not sure of how to feel. The beginning was dead right average, the middle got very good, and the ending left me with sort of a bad taste. I mean, for a show that thrives on karma, the townspeople got away relatively scot-free. Sure they'll be sent to hell later on in their lives, but I dunno. Seems too easy or something.

Fucking fantastic. What a wild ride this last arc has been!

Almost a perfect ending except for the fact that Takuma was stupid enough to save the bitch that tried to send him to hell.

I'm glad Takuma survived. He was a fucking trooper for outlasting all that chaos and madness.

Fucking plot twist! The Lord of Hell was Kikuri the whole time!

I was crying bucketloads when those savages were beating Ai to death.

One of the greatest anime endings I've ever seen.

8.5/10 Would have gave it a 9 if the episodes before Takuma's arc weren't so average.

...Well it's..."over" as Ai so Aptly put it...

This was another absolute amazing season of Jingoku shoujo!
Although i wish i could a shed at least 1 tear for Ai's "death".
Beautiful absolutely Beautiful!
9/10 for me!

Hell Hotline actually became a Bloody hotline as the term Hotline usually refers to a cellular Call.

P.S FUCK THOSE DISGUSTING VILLAGERS FOR BEATING AI!!!

I thought the finale was pretty invigorating, but it had multiple noticeable plot holes that I can't see past, including the following:

So, a client has to have hatred for the victim they choose to send to Hell. That's an established rule in the story. Hotaru clearly doesn't despise Takuma in the slightest, so by allowing her to send Takuma to Hell anyway, that goes against that principle entirely. Ick.

Why did Ai take Takuma back if it's her duty to ferry all victims to Hell? Is he just special and warrants her to? I just don't get it.

And how did Hotaru die exactly? That's never hinted at. She just appears lifeless on the shore and that's all there is to it.

And what was probably the biggest plot hole in the episode, why did the Lord of Hell decide to release Ai's loved ones? For what explained reason?

Anyway, I was so excited up to this episode. Don't get me wrong, I really liked this season, but I don't think it was developed as marvelously as season 1 was.

8.5/10.

well, l think that she already had fulfilled her duty as hell girl, l saw somewhere that her punishment was to send 8 thousand of souls to hell in a thousand years, so that 8 souls for year is a good run, considering that a lot of souls was sent from lovely hills, she could have ended her duty or even done more than her obligation

Not really. People in love/hate relationships have been sent in hell before. And Hotaru did hate the circumstances around Takuma's existence, thus hating him. She was also sad about it, but that's irrelevant.

As to why Hell Girl did not ferry Takuma to hell, it was because Kikuri taunted her into remembering that she herself was in that situation, where the people around her mistreated her, misjudged her and killed her off for their own benefit. At that point she Ai Enma snapped out of her cold and uncaring judgement.

I don't understan why those 3 couldn't help Enma, but anyways. I am kinda dissapointed about the ending. I mean those crazy people started hitting Enma without reason and then let the boy alone? I just don't like it it.

I honestly think Jigoku Shoujo would have been better off without a third season, regardless of what holes it may fill in the story. I look at Futakomori, especially this particular episode as the highest point in the entire series.

My one comment directly related to the episode is: WOW Kikuri, you are a total bitch.

Overall, when entertainment has the ability to trigger such a variety of emotions (disgust, joy, sorrow etc) all in one brief episode, it is truly a pinnacle of artistic design. Even after everything I have said, this isn't one of the best anime to ever exist, I gave it a 9/10.

A happy ending... for Takuma?! Impossible!

I can't believe the spider was Kikuri, explains why he's been missing throughout this season.

But dang, what a depressing end to a depressing anime.

I wasn't expecting that ending at all. I didn't even know Enma could die! I got a little shocked by her death and regretted the fact that it would mean no season three, but after all there's a season three (thank God!) I simply love this series. It's one of the most touching series I've ever watched until now. 10/10 definitely!

God I enjoyed this season a lot more than the last. It's sad what happened to Ai in the end but I'm glad that Hotaru is back with his dad. I wish those adults would have faced some sort of punishment for what they did. I guess when they die, they finally will.

I'm interested and excited to see what next season holds!

IMO way better then 1st season.

At last Takuma has good ending. Poor Ai.

I guess in the end Enma sacrificed herself to prevent the cycle of hate, what a cool end. I really love this series and the previous one and will watch season 3. What angers me is those people who wanted to kill Takuma and killed Enma, they never got punished they just were never seen again.

Seeing Ai getting beat up to death like that and no one steps in to help was just... ugh.. it's more infuriating than sad.

This is pretty much a happy ending as far as Jigoku Shoujo goes, I'm satisfied. Though I am curious as to how they will continue on it. If they start focusing on the victim of the week aspect again, my enjoyment will definitely go down. There's only so many times I can watch stupid people make stupid decisions because all of existence conspires against them. Anyways, nice finale!

This episode was too sad. I literally cried because Takuma repeated the same mistakes as Ai when she was alive. Also Ai getting beat up was not amusing. Amazing last episode! I‘ll give this anime a 9/10

For the most part, this season was more formulaic than season 1, but it didn't get boring as quickly. I liked that we got to see the backstories of Hell Girl's teammates, as well as more of the inner workings of Hell. I also liked seeing Hajime and Tsugumi again, even if briefly. My personal favorite episode was probably episode 15.

Great that they brought back Takumi's subplot for the last arc of the season, and I'm glad that Takumi's dad and Hotaru survived. Also, even though it probably wasn't meant to be funny, I laughed pretty hard at the montage of people banishing each other to Hell in episode 24, like what the hell is wrong with these people.

Not sure if I liked it more overall than season 1, so 6/10 for now.

The whole Takuma's arc was sickening me, but this last chapter was really something...
Ai finally free from those chains alongside her parents.
Not going to lie seeing Takuma with his father made me cry, I'm so happy for him.

This is my second time watching this, I remember it so clearly, how could I forget even if I watched this a decade ago.

My heart breaks as hard as it did for Ai over a decade ago, or maybe, it breaks even harder, to say that wouldn't be an understatement. This was a good re-watch. I felt as helpless as the servants and Takuma, who wants to help Ai but could do nothing about it. I hope that those who hit Ai get sent to the deepest pits of hell.
10/10 - No matter what anybody says.
