Review: Jigoku Shoujo: Yoi no Togi (Hell Girl: The Fourth Twilight)

Synopsis: You can send someone you hold a grudge against to Hell if you access the Hell Correspondence website at midnight. Enma Ai and her team will do an investigation and give you a voodoo doll with a string attached. If you remove the string, the person will go to Hell. However, you will have to pay a price in which you will go to Hell too after you die.

The Fourth Twilight is the fourth season of Hell Girl, and each episode follows a different character who wants to send someone to Hell.

Out of the six episodes, I liked three. The cases are either a hit or miss. Some cases are interesting and eventful while other cases are silly. This anime is short, but I do like Hell Girl so getting some new episodes is better than nothing. There are six more episodes, but they are re-runs from previous seasons.

A new character is introduced and her backstory is revealed in episode 5. She also plays a significant role in episode 6. I don’t particularly hold any strong feelings toward the new character because she isn’t very fleshed out. I think the series is too short to explore her character further. We don’t dive deep enough to come to like her a lot.

I enjoyed Futakomori, the second season, a lot more so I recommend watching that over The Fourth Twilight. I blogged about Futakomori in an earlier blog post, which you can find here.

  1. The studio may have run out of good ideas.

    If you notice, in the opening Ai Enma was originally displayed as a schoolgirl. By the end of the series the opening was showing the same prepubescent girl in a decidedly more sensual light. I think they were trying to compensate for lost creativity with a bit of lolicon.
