Have you heard of Hell Correspondence? Those with a powerful grudge may only access this mysterious website at midnight, allowing them to enter anyone's name and have that person be ferried straight to hell. Ai Enma, the Hell Girl, will not judge whether or not the chosen target deserves punishment; she will merely exact revenge on them for you. Not much is known about this young girl other than that she swiftly carries out her tasks with the help of three straw dolls. There is just one catch, however—as payment for carrying out such a request, the user must condemn themselves to an afterlife in hell.

O pitiful shadow bound in darkness,
Thine actions cause men pain and suffering.
A soul drowned in sinful karma.
Care to give death a try?


Some of the stories are better than others but, it’s worth watching.


Loved it. Many people didn’t like how repetitive it became, but I really enjoyed that. There is a plot, you just have to watch enough to see


I felt like this could have been better if it weren’t episodic. I still enjoyed it though because of its theme.


I enjoyed it a story about people doing whatever it takes ultimately deciding if they truly want revenge


Japanese Horror . Trade a price in return for a favor. Each story speaks something new, life lessons and gore.


wanna sell your soul so you can get back at that person that bullied you in high school?
