Somewhere in the vast sea of the Internet, there's a website that can only be accessed at the stroke of midnight. Known as the Jigoku Tsushin, rumor has it that if you post a grudge there, the Jigoku Shoujo will appear and drag whoever torments you into the inferno. Very little is known about the girl - all we know for sure is that she lives with her equally enigmatic grandmother, that three magical straw dolls accompany and serve her, and that whenever a posting on the Jigoku Tsushin moves her, she becomes the Jigoku Shoujo.

All I have to say is that the series was really good, especially if you're looking for a drama that takes away all that cutesy love business and solely leaves you in suspense. The drama has the right element of horror that it doesn't keep you up at night, but it still scares the living daylights out of you...it is quite creepy. However, I felt as the series progressed, the drama became less creepier.

The script writing was great. It made me further interested and kept me interacted. The music was great as well. Like in horror films, the music plays at the right moments keeping the movie creepy, the same goes for this drama. The music cuts out at the right time giving way to dialog or, in some cases, screams.

I gave the rewatch value an 8, since this is a series that you can watch over again. You can watch the show at episode 4 without watching the previous three episodes and still feel up to date with everything because of the way its written.

For people who watched the anime, some may be disappointed because the actress for Enma Ai is older than she is supposed to be. However, Sayuri does such a good job portraying Ai that you don't even notice the age discrepancy. Everything fits neatly together. I loved the drama and am now currently watching the anime to see how they differ side by side.

This is definitely one of the best live action that I have seen. It has a dark appeal to it and even though it is really hard to compete with the anime in terms of special effects and getting the minor details I feel they did a good job. Even though they should have chosen a younger girl for Ai-san's role. Also Ai-san should have had longer hair and red contacts through out to make it more realistic. All her companions did an amazing role and the acting was definitely fabulous.

The script could have been better adapted and the story needed a bit more work. The ending was a slight disappointment for me. But I would definitely watch this again and again.

I feel the best part of this show was that they did not try to justify the acts and sins of humans and try to portray what is right or what is wrong. They should it from an unbiased point of view and left the viewers to form their own opinions. Truly remarkable drama and one that I would recommend to everyone especially the pensive minds.
