Scale of 1 to 10, but you didnt state which end was scary, and which was not... so I am going to assume that 10 is the scary end. In which case I would rate Hell Girl a -1.

Another and Higurashi are waaaaaaaaaaaaay more scary than this will ever be. Hell Girl is more like Aesop's Fables than a slasher flick. lol

basically it's one of those shows that makes you hate people.

it shows you how many vile, disgusting, bastards there are in the world that would pretty much get away with it, without some form of supernatural intervention.

You are almost glad when she takes some of these people away, even if it dose mean someone innocent gets taken down with them

The main thing I hated about the show was that victims get taken away too... but it's working on the moral premise of if you go for revenge you are digging two graves.

Depends upon if you're looking at the stories themselves or the overall idea. . .Frankly, I find it terrifying that an innocent like Ai can suffer such betrayal and brutality--even to the point of suffering the same horrendous type of death a second time. But that's how the world really works--the innocents are slaughtered in whatever period and culture, simply because they are easy victims. When Hell Girl holds up that mirror on human behavior, it becomes horrifying indeed.

I think it's a pretty good series but it is one that holds a very ugly mirror up to humanity. Some of the episodes (particularly the end of the first season) can be pretty powerful

Hmmmm sounds pretty good. From the name I expected it be some cheap horror anime or something. But it sounds like it goes into some pretty deep stuff. I'm gonna check it out. Appreciate it bud.

I have to agree with the anime Another & Higurashi. Mostly the fact there's a lot blood, gore, violence and deaths.
Shion and Rena scared the living crap out of me....*Shuddered*

I would say around 3-4. The music is nice though and I listen to it here and there often especially the OST.

Honestly, it delivers various 'scares'. Some leave you scratching your head, some leave you shaking your head, and yet some have you anxious to see the person sent to hell.

I'd say about a 5, the half-way point, because the true terror in this series is humans and what they do and capable of.

I think it would be a 3. It was fine for me and it wasn't bad.
