Crash

"This is a sweet series. It's start a female demon like character into extracts revenge on other for whoever asks at a single cost."

RadioClash

"pretty good. worth a 2nd look."

Der Blaue Soldat

"I liked it. The depressing horror type of thing. I would definitely watch again."

Doug

"I don't normally watch horror because usually it's just depressing. But even I can see that this is very good example of the genre. It does a superb job of racheting the tension up and up. So it's not merely depressing, it's stressful. At least, there are no tentacles."

Michael Eh?

"Something about Japanese horror which is totally missed by North American horror producers. that being people's own actions towards each other is horror enough that sends them to hell. Hell Girl herself wasn't frightening but the actions of the girls bullying were. The Japanese show the true horror without the slasher flick mentality or the shock value."
