Hell Girl, also known as Jigoku Shoujo: Girl from Hell, is a 26 episode Japanese anime in the genre of supernatural horror. Most of its episodes are unconnected tales with the narrative of each episode focusing on the suffering one person endures from another. Each tale of antagonism follows the flow of the victim's initial torment, escalation of that torment, and then contacting a website named "Hell Correspondence" for a contract of retribution. Ai Enma, the titular Hell Girl, arrives soon after the victim contacts her website and offers the client one final chance out before committing to the contract. Usually the client presses the need for revenge, which is when Ai hands the client a doll that resembles the antagonist of the episode. This doll bears a string that, when pulled out, sends the client to hell to atone for his or her sins. After the client is sent to hell, the client's antagonist then has a karmic punishment visited upon him or her by Ai and her other supernatural compatriots Wanyudo, the ghostly old coachman; Ren Ichimoku, a humanoid who began as an ancestor spirit within a katana; and Hone Onna, the "bone woman."
