I can't imagine how it would be perceived in Japanese, where titles are super important. I dunno quite why, but every time she calls him "Hajime-chan" I get uncontrollable twitches in my eye. Its so weird/annoying! Someone please explain!
It's never explained. I think it's just supposed to represent the idea that Tsugumi is more of an equal in the relationship than a daughter usually is. As if Hajime is too much of a screw-up to earn the "otousan" title or something. That's my take on it, anyway.

For what it's worth, in the live-action version, Tsugumi does call Hajime "otousan" - which is a good thing, given that she's played by Irie Saaya. It would look too creepy otherwise.

I'm pretty sure that was episode 5: "The Woman from the Tall Tower"

I really like this series so far, only on ep 7 though
I wish it wasn't licensed then it could have its own big thread like other unlicenced and currently airing animes.
T_T

I hope Amray-san posts here!

Actually, it is not currently airing. Back when it was currently airing it was unlicensed, but it never had a large enough following to get more than the 20 pages you see here.

Quality is very different from Popular.

Have the both of you watched the second season? Futakomori's thread is located here, in case you didn't realise. So, in a sense, the commentary didn't stop at just 20 pages.

Oh yeah.... 20 pages of the first season and 12 pages of the second? That's real popular. Great show, but let's face it. Without super fighting powers, an overdose of "moe" or a whole lot cute girls inexplicably hanging off one guy like he was god's gift to women -- that's the most you can hope for.

As I said, quality has nothing to do with popularity. If you want to find the best shows don't pay too much attention to the size of the thread or wonder if it has its own forum.

I never done that with Hell Girl.
I saw it for sale, looked into it more and then bought it, and loved it. ^_^
I knew I would because I absolutely love Gothic kind of Animes and Culture.

I'm not sure if Jigoku Shoujo is actually that "great" in the first place.

It had a few great episodes, and a good resolution (and an even better one in its second season), but overall, it was a bit too repetitive. It had a great story concept, but unfortunately, it failed to develop its premise to its full potential. All too often, the culprits in Jigoku Shouju deserved their punishment and the resolutions were often too simplistic. The series failed to exploit the various moral dilemmas that could have occured in many situations and opted for the obvious way out too often for my liking.

In a way, you could regard Jigoku Shoujo as a more accessible version of Death Note. It doesn't demand too much from a viewer and it certainly is a lot easier on the eyes — Enma Ai easily qualifies as of the prettiest harbingers of doom I've seen in recent memory.

All said and done, 20 plus 12 pages isn't all that bad, especially when you consider how some anime threads don't even get that far. Some of the posts in either threads were pretty good too. So yeah, I'd say 20+12 is at least somewhat indicative of this show's quality.

3rd season announced. More details are yet to be released. I'll believe it when I see the first ep.

Oh, and for a more nuanced view, get the manga. The mangaka did a pretty good job with the moral stuff.

We know. It has its own thread: Jigoku Shoujo Third Season. Discuss it there instead of derailing this thread.

So when the third season starts, will we merge the threads or what? This thread only for season 1/2?

The title is Jigoku Shoujo/Hell Girl, so this thread is just talking about the whole Anime in general.

No, this thread is only for season 1. Here's the season 2 thread: Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori

This thread's title is the same as the title of the first season. Lest anyone else be confused I've added to the thread title to make it absolutely clear.
