Welp she changed her mind fast. But she still talk about heaven and said to the "good" people to not take their revenge, that's not really a good job as hell girl

Damn! Even the afterlife is unfair as fuck! Michiru does not deserve to be fated as the new Hell Girl. The people in that town got just what they deserved for killing Michiru and her parents!!

So, what happens to Ai Enma now that there's a new Hell Girl?

Too rushed, and really turned out badly, this time the story real mess, Michiru becoming Hell Girl against every reason, and now there is 2 hell girl... Nonsense about going heaven etc.. Story the worst of all makes no sense.

I pretend this season never happened and a fan fiction. With about 1 good episode, 1-2 okay, the rest are pure trash

No offense meant but you must be really sheltered if you think these were unrealistically cruel. Not upset common, but serious bullying, rape, assault, elderly abuse, ect.,all happen somewhere in the world on a daily basis. Very realistic, if anything.

The Voice Actress for Michiru, Watada Misaki, mentioned in her Youtube channel that Yoi no Togi will be the climax of the Hell Girl series.


God I hope that's not true. Was a seriously depressing finale if so. Ai deserves better. I don't know why they keep trying to give us new Hell Girls. Ai is a big reason people like this series. They really need to evaluate what people love about the original show and work off that again. I don't mind Michiru as a character and having two Hell Girls that do things differently honestly wouldn't be bad but they can't get rid of Ai and they can't just end it the way this episode did.

The episode continues when end the 5,a nd was very nice and how the amnesic girl of the first episode is transformed in a new Jigoku Shoujo.... the character havent the strong and the atractive to Ai, but is interesting to create a "spin off"!!!! xD

I think that by 'climax' refers to the important turning point of the series (that is by making Michiru as the Hell Girl successor, showing the existance of two Hell Girls, & the possibility of the Hell's Crew to be redeemed in Heaven). I really don't think that Jigoku Shoujo will end this way as it would be too abrupt, and cliff-hanging.

There are many questions left unanswered such if Ai ever get the chance to finally be free from the Hell Spider's contract, etc. I would be disappointed if they leave us with such, short + less appealing final season for us fans.
Though I am still thankful that they've created Michiru though XD

Honestly, I still want more Jigoku Shoujo. I hope that there is a sequel announcement in the end of the airing session.

I'm so confused. Also, who is Michiru... She came out of nowhere, we get a rushed backstory, she's adamantly against being Hell Girl, then basically it's like "lol nvm i'll be hell girl hehe". Sad to see this series come to such a rushed ending. Doesn't do the overall show justice.


I agree that it was rushed. Why did Michiru agree to become Hell Girl? She refused it in the beginning of the episode and then accepted that easily?

Finally someone said it! This anime basically has little to no good people. It just serves the purpose of making watchers mad and angry at the characters.
I know this is horror, but it would have been more realistic if there wasn't so much cruelty and gore for no reason.

Nice Michiru's that loose overarching plot thru the episodic stories. At times confusing, each story is interesting & enough difference to each other, tho mostly on the overexaggerated & surreal vibe.
Seems more pyschological in its horror, since it's lacking gore (compared to the 90s i've been watching, or even the blood amount in silly shows like Smartphone).
Look forward to recaps of stories iv never seen, assuming it might cover mcs' backstories maybe.

Those 2 guys were really horrible! One of them even raped the sister of the guy the girl were dating...She went to jail coz she turned off her dad's equipment?
So, does it mean, we won't see Ai as hell girl anymore? I hope not...

I agree that the overall story arc was rushed, though IMO perhaps only 1 more episode was needed; it wasn't *that* rushed...

I kinda feel like you guys are missing the trees for the forest though. This is really meant to be an episodic anime and y'all keep whining about the overall direction. The overarching storyline really isn't the meat of the series, it's more just a glue to hold the episodes together and occasionally deliver a couple exceptional episodes for the season finale. The heart of the series is in each individual episode, nearly every one of which is crafted as a stand-alone story to enjoy on its own merits.

Too bad that this series has only 6 new episodes. At least i really like these 6.

My final judge: 6/10.

I can understand people hating on it being just 6 episodes but
wish they would reasonably continue this arc
perhaps it even gave the feeling that would remind of 3rd season
it still was great to watch
it is what, 12 years since the beginning?
and 8 since mitsuganae
it still was nice to get them Ippen Shinde Miru

Am I confused this story? Is Ai Enma no longer working on Hell Girl next season 5?

Michiru disappoints me...

The development that led Yuzuki to become a Hell Girl was far better planned out. Sucks that Yuzuki got discarded not long after becoming an interesting character.

About Kikuri. Is she just the Spider playing along? I mean it's the Spider that wants to assign a new Hell Girl, but Kikuri is against it. Could she be a 2nd personality to the Spider, or perhaps a vessel that is entirely independent?

Also, I remember Ai explaining that pulling the string will cause the contractor to "never go to heaven" was that a figure of speech? or is her ignorance of heaven's existence a plot hole?

Enma is the only Hell Girl for me, I feel like Michiru became hell girl too fast, was expecting 2 or more episode before something causes her to decide not this.

Anyway, I'm assuming the season's done judging by the post credit scene, if that ends up being true, I can't say I'm a huge fan of this season, it was too short... too damn short

Tetsuya's finally making an effort to make things work out for her so she wouldn't need to damn herself to hell like how he did to himself to avenge her sister for getting raped by one of the drunk delinquents that made ramen man a vegetable but she really didn't hesitate on taking the easy way out which was ironically self-damnation. If she took things legally and signed a waiver to allow the staff to end life support, she wouldn't have been arrested and she would've been married to him for the rest of their doomed but happy lives.

Michiru was very conflicted about the being the next Hell Girl thing but did the job exactly how Enma would've done it in her first job anyway. It might be because of the realization that there's no escape from it and the psychological effect of being forced to listen to the wind chime from your haunted past ring above her head whenever she tries to run away. I'm somewhat glad that she's actually making an effort to convince others to not make rash decisions later on but I felt pretty down about how she speaks of heaven like she'll go there when the destiny of hell girls is to be bound to this duty. Enma knows it too well, looking at how empty she's become. Kikuri got dumped too ;-;

The art's very iffy at times, reminding me of that one Gurren Lagann episode 4 that was outsourced and very eh looking but the stories about the contracts were as good as ever since I enjoyed myself anyway so this one's pretty good.

I actually broke away from this at episode 4 because other things came up and only just now decide to binge watch the rest of the episodes to complete it. To my surprise the series actually "ends" at episode 6 and my god what a terrible conclusion. I glanced a little at later episodes and they are indeed straight up old season episodes. Legit no shame.

The whole Michiru becoming the new Hell Girl development was severely lacking. Episode 5 she was pretty much refusing to do it then in Episode 6 she is wearing the whole Hell Girl attire and performing Enma Ai's lines. Felt like quite a few scenes was cut for that transition.

There is too many questions left unanswered and logic from previous seasons was broken. I'm legit pissed this is how Hell Girl series turned out. There was already some red flags with the shoddy art designs and animation but geez, just recycling old episodes for the rest duration?

If the 6 episodes was strong this wouldn't matter so much but this is easily the worst Hell Girl season. I was so happy too when I first saw a new Hell Girl was being made in my notifications a year ago, series should have stayed dead at season 3 with better memories of it. What a waste.

I thought all the episodes this season were decent, so I think I liked it more overall than season 3.

Michiru becoming Hell Girl for seemingly no reason was rushed, but at least it was better than Yuzuki not even completing a single mission at the end of season 3. I also liked Michiru encouraging the kid not to commit suicide.

6/10

well, with bad budget, and staffs not even caring anymore, this is what you get, this is definitely the worst of all the Jigoku Shoujo series, if it is even part of it, which I don't believe it is. Anyway, i'll just say that this is just a spin off and not part of the main storyline, Jigoku Shoujo ended in Futakomori or Mitsuganae would be even much better.

But Michiru being Hell Girl has a different feel to it, she has a different way of doing some things in comparison with how Ai does things.

Anyway, still a 8/10 for me, just because I'm a fan of Ai.
