** Oh, and don't think that [[spoiler:Ai dying at the end of ''Futakomori'' means that's the end of the Hell Correspondence. The very last part of the episode shows that it's still up and running]]. Even worse, later episodes ''Mitsuganae'' show that [[spoiler:Yuzuki was only the latest of many Hell Girls to take up the job in Ai's absence]].

** [[spoiler: Nina's story from Season 1 counts as well. She's actually just a doll that's haunted by the sadness of her former owner, the long-dead real Nina]]

* EasyRoadToHell: All that's needed to go to is for someone to dislike you enough to be willing to make a deal to send you there--or to make that deal yourself. People have been sent to Hell for spilling coffee on someone on that show.

People have been sent to Hell there. It doesn't matter what you did either, it could be for anything as petty as spilling coffee on someone on someone, or worse, for nothing at all. One episode shows that show.you can be sent to hell [[spoiler: before ''even being born.'']].

The second season picks up a [[TimeSkip few years]] after the conclusion of the first season, and continues the established formula (minus Hajime and co.), this time telling each story from the side of Ai and her [[TrueCompanions associates]] as they investigate and influence the circumstances in each case. Though diluting the simplicity of the concept, this season swaps out the BlackAndWhiteMorality found in most of the first season cases for a BlackAndGrayMorality, in which neither antagonist nor victim is really in the right. Fortunately, the [[SympatheticPOV new angle]] manages to [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy keep the series watchable]] in spite of the overdose of [[TrueArtIsAngsty misery and woe]].

* GoneHorriblyRight: Sending the person who made your life a living hell, well, to hell does not solve everything.

* RedStringOfFate: Fits mostly to the title of the trope than anything else really. There IS a Red String and it DOES work in binding their Fate, but with no connotations to romance at all. If someone could redirect me to a trope that's more suitable than this, please do so.



** In ''Mitsuganae,'' [[spoiler: Yuzuki's best friend Akie becomes the target of a woman who wants to make Akie's father, the chief of police, suffer for covering up a crime in which the woman's own father was injured.]]]
