4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, fascinating...if a tiny bit repetitive
So Hell-Girl...each episode is a different story, each giving a reason for wanting one's immortal soul to be bound to the depths of hell. Some reasons are kind of dumb, I must admit, and that episode had me laughing the whole way through. The other 4 do, however, show the pain and desperation felt by the protagonist and the lengths a person will go to in order to end...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but repetitive
Good short stories, but so repetitive. They repeat entire sequences each episodes, which is ashame, because this was a promising gem..

I loved it. It's not all Emo or questioning the ways of good and evil and all that business, but it's not to be taken lightly either.

A good little Anime, even if it's little known.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually very good, 12 Aug 2013

This review is from: Hell Girl Volume 1 - Butterfly [DVD] (DVD)
I first heard about Hell Girl when looking around places such as Drama crazy and mysoju (no longer working) so looked for the same in the Anime. There a several stories all revolving around the subject of revenge and a judgement that fits the "crime" or circumstances. The Hell Girl website only appears at midnight and when you type in your grievance you get a visit from Ai Enmi (Hell Girl) who actually lives in Hell, (well when the one requesting help is transported to see Ai the place is all in Red) Hell Girl lives with her grandmother who sets out her Kimono so she can travel.

Hell Girl has three other companions who help her bring justice to the Victim who contacted her, a sort of Granddad figure and a tall long haired pretty boy and a totally gorgeous woman I would give my soul to Hell Girl just for a date with her totally hot companion .

Ai gives the victim who wishes retribution on her/his tormentor a what appears to be a straw doll with a red thread tied around it's neck and when it is untied they enter a covenant with Hell Girl.

I will end the review here as to continue will spoil it for others who want to see this series. Some reviewers have said the stories are repetitive but I tend to take each one as a separate story and just go with it. I love the song at the start an the end too and the stories are all very well thought out and I actually like Hell Girl, I would love to be her friend, she is so sweet but so lethal as she takes the tormentors straight to Hell. Highest recommendation from me is go get the whole series and enjoy
