Jigoku Shoujo

This week’s anime is Jigoku Shoujo or ‘Hellgirl’. Like Mushishi, one can drop in and out at any time as each episode has a stand alone story. The general gist is that, in each episode, somebody has been tormented to varying degrees and they can have revenge or justice upon their tormentor by calling upon Hellgirl via her website. If they send them to hell, they sacrifice their own soul to hell too.

The website is Hell-link and the girl is Ai Enma, a young girl who, dressed in the traditional kimono, confronts the tormentors with hallucinatory events that reflect their own misdeeds until she finally takes them off to hell.

The theme ‘Sakasama no Chou” by SNOW is damn catchy and some of the people taken to hell are really cruel. After one disc, I conclude that while it is an interesting concept, it is not a compelling view, unless you have a free day/essay due.
