* GenreSavvy: The target in episode 5 of the first season, a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corrupt Corporate Executive]], who, unusually for characters of that archetype, is ''fully aware'' that her actions will likely mean she's going to hell when she dies. But, she reasons, if she's only going to hell when she dies (until the client sends her to hell at the end of that episode, of course), then ''while she's alive'' she might as well have as much fun "winning the game" as humanly possible.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Episode 1 of Mitsuganae. A girl named Itsuko sends her apparently mean teacher to hell for [[DisproportionateRetribution throwing away her iPod]]. Two seconds after the string is pulled Yuzuki runs into the room to give her back her iPod-- sensei was joking. Cue MyGodWhatHaveIDone face.
* NeverMyFault: A lot of the AssholeVictims refuse to admit to their crimes and will even blame things on the people they wronged when questioned by Enma and company. This makes it all the more satisfying when they're dragged screaming into hell with a good dose of LaserGuidedKarma.
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: To keep up with their next client.
** [[spoiler: Or to spy on Yuzuki in season three.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In Season 3, after being separated from Ai, Yuzuki can sense when a person might use Hell Correspondence in the future. She detects vibes coming from a student named Usagi Shinohara and runs up to her blurting out not to use Hell Correspondence to send people to Hell, that vengeance is wrong. It turns out Usagi had never heard of Hell Correspondence before and then she has a bad day...

The third (and possibly final, [[SeriesFauxnale again]]) season switches up the formula a [[ArcNumber third]] time, introducing a new [[ArcNumber third]] angle to the standard format, this time in the form of Yuzuki Mikage, who, through interactions with the victims and Ai's associates, is [[BlessedWithSuck given the rare opportunity]] to watch her hometown and her entire life crumble around her courtesy of the Hell Correspondence. Amazingly enough, [[FromBadToWorse it goes further downhill from there]].

This anime also has the distinction of airing on American television- IFC holds the broadcast rights to the first season of ''Anime/HellGirl'' and shows episodes of it in varying timeslots. Check their website for more details.

There is also a manga adaptation, which [[AdaptationDistillation shares the premise and core characters]] but follows its own storyline. The first series ran for 9 volumes, the second for a few more, and the third is currently ongoing. A LiveActionAdaptation also exists, in series form; set within the timeline of the first anime season, retaining the anthology format while notably averting the anime storyline. [[CompressedAdaptation At a mere 12 episodes, there wasn't much room for them anyway.]] The series also spawned two video games, for the Nintendo DS (''Jigoku Shoujo Akekazura'') and the [=PS2=] (''Jigoku Shoujo Mioyosuga'') respectively, as well as a puzzle game on the Konami-Net DX service for i-mode compatible mobile phones.
