I used the CR search and Google and could not find this so i hope its not a duplicate



In this dark anime series, people driven to desperation get revenge on their tormentors by shooting a message via the Internet to Hell Girl, who whisks the offending person off to the underworld. But Hell Girl demands a steep price for her services

So i havent seen this but i am thinking about it. I wanted peoples opinons on how scary it is. I do not normally like scary shows but for somereason this one looks interesting to me.

I've seen it and enjoyed the art, the various stories and even the emotions of the various charactors are developed. It's not as scary as others and not as bloody . overall watch the series for your own , you will not be dissappionted.

i remember seeing this years back, but i think someone locked it from spamming and watnot.
i just started recently because of the psych anime competition that chromemist is doing.

for the first 5 episode, its amazing. its not all that scary, just scary ideas. its amazing, i usually lean away from things like this as well.
just saying you should try another as well if this interest you

Great series that aired 3 seasons. The dubbed version for season 1 is also not bad. Although episodic with a few arcs, it's one of my favorites. Oh, and did I mention the superior OST?

Definitely dark with a rather pessimistic view of mankind, though with some occasional flashes of humor. However, I didn't really find it scary at all. I've all three seasons of 26 episodes each on DVDs.

Jigoku Shoujo isn't that scary. I mean, it can be kind of scary in some bits but it's mostly psychologically disturbing and intriguing.
I'd definitely watch it, it's one of my favourite animes because each episode is so interesting. Also, it's the only english dubbed anime I've seen that has swearing in it....Although I don't usually watch english dubbed, I quite liked the english dubbed of this anime

It feels repetitive in the beginning, but is oddly compelling to me.

The episodic and even ritualized nature of the show can seem repetitive but it's really good. And the over all arc of all three seasons tells an interesting story.

The early stories are straightforward vengeful justice where you're totally onside with hell girl and her supplicants over the course of season and over the whole series ... Things get more ... complex.

But I wouldn't really call it scarey. even when hell girl and her crew are scaring the life out of some benighted soul it can be funny or rewarding.

Jigoku Shoujo will seem episodic, monotonous and really wont make sense until someone has seen all three seasons and put them all together. Of course many episodes can be depressing because many episodes handle the darkest of (real life) subject matter. Also if someone relies on optimism bias and positive illusion to live their life they may as well not watch it. The overall messages, "it cannot be helped" and that vengence is futile can seem defeatist and depressing and I too had a hard time agreeing with them. Jigoku Shoujo is also a very, very culturally Japanese product. There is allot that westerners will probably not get overall and even the plot of certain single episodes will not make sense. For me, easily one of the best anime productions and I own all three series.

This has been my favorite anime for years It most likely always will be. I rather like the story, even if it is a bit repetitive. It just captures me.

After seeing the first 4 episodes, I came to the conclusion that none of the episode were going to have anything to do with each other so I stopped watching it. Yeah the episodes were kinda cool but I felt that there was no actual story progression. I did the same with darker than black except I got half way through that one. I'll finish them both up one of these days.

I personally love it. I find it pretty underrated--I feel it got overshadowed by the Higurashi series (another fav dark series of mine) since both were released by Studio Deen roughly around the mid 2000's. In my opinion, Three Vessels didn't surpass Two Mirrors (best season) as much as I expected though.

I loved how season 1 showed mostly victimized individuals who were "forced" to use the Hell Link whereas Two Mirrors often showed ppl using the service for their personal, selfish purposes.
