Hell Girl vs Juliana Violet

Have you ever heard about 'Hell Girl" series? I just knew it last few days from my colleague while having cake & tea @ Secret Recipe last week. I'm quite close with her because of the way she thinks and the way she sees things and the best part of her, she's funny. * okay, it might because she's mid40s, so dah banyak makan garam. ;) *
Most of the time, our hot & fav topic - fashion, food, work, future planning, our own interests and 'HOT' guy * okay, tipu - she's married and got 2 kids... ;p' *
But the other day, we talked about anime series.

She : I don't know how you can be my friend. *smile*

Vee : Huh? Why?

She : Mental.

Vee : Well, it might because all of my friends like that, especially you. *laughing out loud*

She : Ya lah. And you ni macam kartun anime kadang-kadang.

Vee : Meaning?

She : Your personality sometimes. *pause*. Anyway, talking about anime, before this - I love to watched this one anime series, Hell Girl. Have you ever heard about that?

Vee : Na'ah. Hellboy I tau lah. *smile*

And then she started to share the storyline of "Hell Girl" series. I do asked her why they called the main character "Hell Girl" but she can't even remember why. So I do some research about the series.

"Hell Girl", anime Jigoku Shoujo which was first shown in Japan in 2005 with a second seasion realeased in late 2006.
The series revolves around a young girl called Enma Ai who makes offers to make contracts with people who seek revenge by accessing her website at midnight. The target of the revenge is taken immediately to hell but in exchage the person initaiting the contract will be sent to hell when they die.

Enma Ai is the Jigoku Shouji (Girl from hell) and is the main character of the series. She tend to wear a black and red trimmed school uniform except when she is ‘working’ when she wears a black kimono with colored flowers (looks a little different in the second series).
She receives request for vengeance through a website which can only be accessed at exactly midnight and only by those who truly was revenge. After getting a request she gives the person a doll with a red string indicating that by pulling the string a contract is agreed to take the target of revenge to hell in exchange for that person going to hell when they die. Enma is assisted by three people Ichimoku Ren, Hone Onna and Wanyuudou.
Each of these assistants can turn into the dolls she gives to the persons requesting revenge. During the first series it is always Wanyuudou that turns into the doll but in the second series it varies between the three of them. She has some strange link to the girl called Tsugumi resulting in what she is seeing being transmitted to her sometimes. Enma has a tragic history that turned her into the hell girl revealed in the later episodes of the series.
Enma appears to have some very strong powers creating complex illusions, teleporting people and in some rare cases fire large bolts of dark energy. Her most powerful ability is to send people to hell, however she only ever uses this when she has a confirmed request from someone."

Dari penceritaan kawan Vee,

"Hell Girl akan bertanya kepada sesiapa (orang yang berdendam) yang membenci sesiapa (orang yang dibenci) untuk membalas dendam. Jika orang (orang yang berdendam) yang meminta Hell Girl membalas dendam itu menghapuskan orang yang dibencinya, Hell Girl akan melakukan sesuatu yang bakal membuatkan orang yang dibenci itu mati dengan apa cara sekalipun. Tapi, satu perkara yang pasti, orang yang berdendam itu akan terus ke neraka selepas mati."
Interesting right? ;)

Tepuk dada tanya selera, bagi Vee series ni punya mesej yang tersendiri. :)

"If someone is seeking your revenge she could be looking at you right now. Have you done something bad?"

"I’m pretty, but I’m not beautiful. I sin but I’m not the devil. I’m good but I’m not an angel."

P/S : I hate you. :)
