Does hell exist? Only those who have met the Hell Girl, Ai Enma, know for sure. It is said that if someone accesses the Hell Correspondence website at midnight, they can type in the name of the person they hold a grudge against—and, subsequently, Hell Girl will take that person to hell.

However, what most people don't know is the price of such an act: in order to send someone to hell, the requester's soul is damned as well. But is any price worth paying to see vengeance exacted on one's enemies?

Jigoku Shoujo (Hell girl) is a rather unique story about revenge.
Story: 7
The story doesn't particularly have a plot, every chapter (except towards the end of the series) is a new chapter long story. Sometimes the chapter is very predictable, other times it has a small, shocking twist to it.
Art: 7
Their eyes are massive, it's quite cute but they're completely disproportional to their face. It can also be quite difficult to tell some minor characters apart.
Character: 5

Enjoyment: 7
I did enjoy the series but it did feel as though read more

There's a website you can access at midnight. It's a connection to the underworld. In there, one will find but a single prompt where you can write down someone's name to be quickly dragged to hell. The entity in charge of actually taking the person there is Enma Ai, a high school girl in beautiful kimono sets. That's the premise. Each story we follow a different revenge plot where a person is bullied or have something terrible done to her and that drives him or her to ask for hell girl's assistance.

Hell Girl has a very odd thing about it. The supposedly main character is read more

I was only able to read the first 3 volumes, and partially re-read the 3rd volume so this review can be taken with a grain of salt.

While the premise is quite interesting and there is a fan-site dedicated to the "Hell Girl" website, and the third volume reveals Ai's tragic backstory and punishment via a flashback/chapter and the 4-Koma of the mangaka and their notes on concepts on Ai and the (then) airing anime were amusing it all ultimately is brought down by the mangaka's own art style and the dreadful, shallow characterizations of the humans and the bullies/evil veterinarians/jealous Alpha Bitches that torment them read more
