It’s been a while since I’ve even blog on this series… what gets me the motive to blog about this series is the fact that there’s the OP music which I really like and the whole Hell Girl scenario. I am still waiting to see the live action and the twisted justice scenario. Very petty, but I like watching the various scenarios that occur in this anime. Read more…
Okay…. quick impressions… Episode 13 was pretty silly, Episode 12 made me cry a bit while Episode 11 was something that left me feeling a bit of off put… a bad case of introvert’s behavior and mis-miscommunication that made the entire episode quite pointless.
I figure watching a series like Jigoku Shoujo there are hit or miss episodes that often makes me feel that there are really stupid and petty reasons why someone would seriously hate someone.
Below I felt I snapped three poignant pictures from each of the episode. The first one with Ai is from episode 13, the old man is from episode 12 and the cat from episode 11. Three reasons why the victims would want to curse their targets.
Yup… just as I hope… more translated episodes are coming out.. quite happy. Actually quite behind the raw episodes that are released. Still… just keeping up with something I really enjoy. Read more…
Finally, after a long time of waiting for the subbed episode I finally got to see a series I really liked and while I didn’t think this episode had much going on, perhaps the next five or so releases might be good. I’ve been hearing raw releases of this series for a while now, so not really good on my patience for this series.. at least it’s not poor Yuki no Joou which is so slow in being release… my friend is already at his patience end for it… Read more…
Finally they’ve started to release this series. This is a highly anticipated series for me to watch. Even more so than Death Note. I love the opening for Jigoku Shoujo 2. While each episode have practically the same storyline with a person calling on Ai to extract vengeance for them. Somehow I have this fascination with Ai who reminds me of Miyu from Vampire Princess. Their stories are similar in the fact that they both will not find peace until the end when all evils are sealed away or extracted.
There seems to be minuscule clues of the character’s backgrounds, particularly in the background of the three helpers. They all can be said to have lived and died during a feudal Japanese society.
During the first episode there was a twisted ending, I can’t really say anything about it except for the fact that there was hazing going on and a teacher was involved. The second episode had a bit more justice gained from the avengence of the sister’s killer. What strikes me as being a bit gloomy is the fact that with one vengence being extracted two graves are dugged, but if there is such human hate then wouldn’t that fit the ideal of if you would die then wouldn’t it be good to bring someone else with you?
The first picture is from the Opening, showing all four regular characters. The second and third picture is from the Ending… really nice right?
