Well I predicted that the hell victim would be the other boy. fits with the theme. Which, I think I'm begining to grasp, is that Hatred doesn't always make sense. or perhaps that we are all sinners.

I'm enjoying this greatly but I would like to start seeing some of the overall plot.

hmm.. we didn't meet Tsugume in season one 'till ep 8 so... there's still time.

I didn't get any facts that there were 13 eps but http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=9678 only has 13 showing, so I took it as there were only going to be 13, obviously though for no ongoing story to be shown yet there will most likely be 20+ as I'm hoping is the case. Would be a shame if they cut the season in half.

Another change is the ... lessening of ritual.

in season one and season two There was always that ritual purification and donning the kimono, getting transported by Wanyudo and the phantasmic torturing of the cursed, followed by Enma Ai rowing the cursed in a boat to hell.

in This latest version the vengeances have been lame and in the most recent ep. happened entirely offscreen. We don't see any torture/transport. Just the latest cursed persons' disapearance.


,,We don't see any torture/transport''
Probably...cause Ai is ,,dead'' She can live in hell but we never see her in reality. She somehow needs Yuzuki. That's why there's no transport from hell, cuz Ai is within Yuzuki-chan body who's in reality. But it's all too weird for me. And I don't watched previous seasons. I must watch it next time =,='


Hmmm I still wondering who is Yamawaro...? Kikuri's back! I never liked her before but she's funny XD
Guys...Did you noticed that all of those ppl were connected with Yuzuki?? It's strange and scary in some ways =,=' And...the most weird thing is...why Jigoku Shoujo returned? Everyone are asking the same question xD I looking forward to the next ep.!

The revenge scenes aren't as great as season one. It's disapointing but I can live with it I guess.

I don't like yuzuki at all...too moe and too tsugumi-wannabe
also they give her too much protagonism
i mean, she's the one that is the most time in the opening
what's so special about her?? maybe ai just pick a random girl
not like tsugumi...who was sentarou's descendant...
and tsugumi didn't get any part in the opening e__e

Having said that, i think that the thing that i most enjoy are the vengeances
they're so funny XDD
also i'm happy just by the fact that there's a 3rd season and that all my beloved characters are back n3n
but i miss tsugumi and hajime ;O; (though i really think and hope that tsugumi is the nurse...and hope they put more things about her) also i miss little takuma ;O;

In futakomori i hated kikuri so bad...i thought she was annoying
now i like her...she's funny and doesn't ruin everything XD
and i love yamawaro n__n he's so kind and servicial
and the way he refers to kikuri (hime) i think it's adorable
it's very funny when he has to wind up kikuri XD

The vengeances are really from a lower standard
i mean the motives, if we compare them with the other 2 seasons
but anyway, they must really hate the person...as they can't enter the webpage if they don't
also they're all around the same village or school or around yuzuki

Another thing i really like are Wanyuudou's smiles XD
they're so funny and cute n_n
and OF COURSE my beloved beloved beloved Moku *---*
so narcissist and kind *----* (ep. 6 XD)
also my beautiful honeonna n_n i love them all
aww i almost cried in episode one ;O; or i think i did

Ah...and i like ai's kimono...better than futakomori's
but the first one was the best ;D

Sorry for this long comment
i'm just obsessed with jigoku shoujo
it's my life ;O;

Ep 9's motivation for revenge is the lamest yet. I agree with Hone Onna "Stupid girl"

I'd like to find out the overall plot though. What's the deal with Yuzuki? The vengeances all being local to her, and Ai's return?

I barely see Ai smiling (exept on her near death on the 2nd season) while she was still a hell girl. But she looks cute on the time when she cried on the last episode of the 1st series. I've been looking forward to see her laugh or just smile through the episodes of the third season.

I think it's the innocent scapegoat-devil-boy from season two. the one everyone in that deserted village blaims for their own sending of each other to hell.

I find this to be an interesting evolution of the anime. Season 1's cursed where almost invariably villians, and the curse usually brought good results for the one making the curse. At least it happened that way sufficiently often for the reporter's daughter to think it was okay. the culmination of season one was personal between Ai and the reporter's ancestors.

Season 2, Clearly had things go astray for those making the curse. often with Kikari's help. the moral ambiguity of the cursing process was emphasised and the culmination seemed like an actuall break down of the system with a whole village cursing itself and Ai refusing to transport her last victim.

Now, it's season three. Ai is back from the dead. apparantly possesing a girl to boot. why is she back? why that girl (I'm sure that question will be as important as asking why the little girl from season one could see visions of Ai) And right off the bat we're working with the down side of the curse machinery as it was only protrayed in one or two episodes of season one (the poor nurse comes to mind) or the final few episodes of season two.

It will be interesting to see where they take things from here. It's not business as usual and that's cool.


no, i dont think the little boy is the one from the village...although i haven't figured out who exactly is he]
season three doesn't seem to be making much sense yet...why the hell is ai back!
who is is the moronic girl possessed by ai?
what is kikuri's objective...who is she? who is the little boy?
ahhh and the pssessed girl just stands by and watches her classmates be sent to hell...but perhaps it would be way too strange for her to run around trying to stop it all like on the 1st season
well...the cases also aren't as interesting as on futakomori...
third season has degraded

unfortunately I have to agree. While I'm hooked on the characters and curious about what drives the differences in this season from the others. This season just isn't... as compelling as the others.

I think the vengeances being sucky is supposed to be some kind of point. but... they really need to start brining in the main story arc and start explaining stuff.

impression..

I think it's interesting and there's a new character, Yamawaro!

I wonder why did Ai chose Yuzuki to be possesed.

Kikuri becoming a puppet in the shop, I took quite a while to understand that..

so far this season is good...so far so good..

okaaay, i think this was the best season. ._.

like i mean, its like abit boring in the previous seasons, where its like you already expect the way how he/she gonna be sent to hell, this one was abit unexpected & something different, which makes you just wanna keep on watching the next episode.

anyway, stop saying like enma misunderstood wtv -.-
she was just doing her job ya'knoe.

what if you're in enma ai's place and if you don't do as requested, you're going to hell.

and its like, there's some mini lessons this time.
eg. first ep: do you know the person's real intention towards you?
well, but seems so little people realized it :/

A girl kissing a girl is not gross. And you know, I'm really liking this season. It gets better and better!
