Hell Girl is a Japanese anime series produced by Aniplex and Studio Deen. It first aired in Japan from October 4, 2005 to April 4, 2006. The second season premiered October 7, 2006 and the third season premiered October 4, 2008. A fourth season served as the climax to the series and aired from July 14 to September 29, 2017.

The premise of Hell Girl is as follows:

Each episode typically follows the format of a self-contained short story where a person has been suffering torment from an acquaintance to the point that he or she accesses the Hell Correspondence website and submits a request to get rid of the person. Ai Enma, the Hell Girl, appears, and presents a doll with a red string on its neck that can send the named antagonist to Hell. When the string is pulled, Ai and her companions then torment the antagonist, offering a last chance to repent (which is usually refused), and ferries them to Hell. The price of the contract is that the person making the request will also have to go to Hell after his or her life is over.
