Loli yuri rape and other craziness in JIGOKU SHOUJO SEASON THREEEEE

Man.

Aside from yuri there’s also cool things like,

Then there’s just stupid shit

The first episode of Jigoku Shoujo season three (or Mitsugane if you feel like GIVING IN TO THE MAN) is just totally bizarre. Remember how in the last season Ai died? Well she’s back. Some how. She kissed a girl a now she’s living inside of her, so we’re probably going to have deal this new girl’s angst a lot. She’s not all that cute either, but I’d still rape her. In like a dark alley. I’d invite friends, too. But I’m getting off track.

One thing that’s always bothered me about Jigoku Shoujo was that it has such great artistic direction that’s wasted on a junk food show. It’s tasty junk food, but it’s junk all the same. This first episode of Mistugane is actually pretty good, though. In most Jigoku Shoujo stories the guy getting sent to hell is usually a dick. There are rare instances when he/she is not a dick, for the most part, they are dicks. In this one, you find out that the main guy isn’t actually a dick, and the girl who dispatched him is forced to live with her sin forever. I think that’s pretty cool.

Sure the series still has its dumb as shit damning to hell sequences, but these have become so ridiculous that I suspect Studio Dean just goes into self-parody mode when they have to script them. I bet they were all laughing over Ai in the bee-suit. I know I was.

The show’s new opening sequence is probably the worst one so far. Season one’s opening was pretty good, and I thought the opening to season two was phenomenal. Maybe this new one will grow on me, but I’m not feeling it. I don’t even think the song is by the talented SNoW either. Man, I love her music. I should get that album of hers.

The ending sequence, on the other hand, is probably the best just for that one shot of Ai’s silhouette behind the sliding doors. That’s classy stuff. The song’s also pretty good.

Moetron claims this show is 13 episodes, but MyAnimeList begs to differ. I hope it’s 13 epsiodes, because while Jigoku Shoujo is delicious junk, you can only have so much before you become horribly obese. I’ve already had 50 some episodes, so I don’t think I’d be able to handle another 26. 13 is doable, though.

    I can’t believe this series is still going on. The blessing/curse of DVD buying moe culture.

  2. I think Jigoku Shoujo is popular amongst Normal People.

    I wish more otaku were into it, good doujin of jigojo is almost non-existent unless you’re really into Arugora Gunia in which case I guess you’re pretty happy

    freak

    I lol’d at the bee suit too.

    Although this season is more of the same hell/damnation affair we’ve seen before, I still like it. I don’t know what it is about dumbass highschool girls sending each other to hell over stupid little things that I enjoy so much. Maybe I’m just bitter and use this show for my own otaku revenge?

    I’m glad Itsuko wasted her chance to send someone deserving to hell. Now she can live out the rest of her days telling the random guys banging her that the mark on her chest is a cool tat she got all the while knowing she sentenced someone innocent along with herself to an eternity in hell over a confiscated ipod and some doodles in a notebook.
    Bummer for the teacher though. :/

    I remember the domestic release of Jigoku Shoujo premiering at AWA last year. Since then, it seems to have taken off somewhat amongst the trendy types in the western fandom.

    I, however, have only watched one episode, so I can’t really judge at this point. I can see where you’re coming from, though.

    I just started watching the first season… and is it me or is Jigoku Shoujo nearly the same thing as Skyhigh Karma ?
