Indeed, YouTube came as a salvation.

Season two while keeping the same formula, it delivers on a different note since Ai is very awared of her retrieved memories from season one.

Cosmetic and twist change introduced were that both Ichimoku Ren and Hone Onna will take more voicing roles in delivering the vengeances speeches.
Spoiler:


They started season two with the highlight on Ai's past and more stuff revealed about the spider.
At least to me, they answered that Ai indeed became the first Jigoku Shoujo.

And we have another mix added, another kimono girl introduced who maliciously watches on Ai and company.

Spoiler:


Anyways, I can see that we're treated with a new soundtrack alongside with the scores from the previous ones, and amazed that for this season they did not toned down the violence and horror aspects.

And even Jigoku Shoujo goes a bit to the mahou-shoujo style. I mean that for each new season she gets an upgrade in both her kimono and her sentence to send the accused to the hell ferry.
I love the new kimono design, and the animation looks more visually neat and gorgeous than in season one.

Finally, the ending theme, Aizome, reminds me of shamanic themes related to spirituality and nature. It's very beautiful, and I wonder if would be included in the third sountrack like Karinui was included in the first soundtrack or getting a CD single release.

Overall, season two started with the right foot to me and includes more creepy, Halloween -esque scores.


Reminder: This thread is for discussion of season TWO. Season ONE has its own thread.

By the way, I'm not sure whether to trust or not ANN, but the site has updated information about the opening song and for episode two to eight.

However, I suggest you all to proceed with caution because lately ANN is uploading false information to its network.

If anyone knows japanese, please check the official JS site to verify the information posted in ANN is in indeed correct.

Opening theme:
NightmaRe by SNoW

Same one who performed season one's opening theme, Sakasama no chou.

The official JS site does not list the new song but SNOW's official does list the song, NightmaRe for Jigoku Shoujo 2:

http://www.sonymusic.co.jp/Music/Inf...ial/index.html

They even have a sample of it on the site. But it requires an updated Windows Media Player. The single will be released on December 6. The song sounds weird to me in the sample, maybe because it's cut off? I'll have to see how the OP sounds next week.

As for me, I wish to know more about the Hell spider.
That sounds silly,but what is its role. Moreover, ah yes, the grandmother always spinning the thread, will I ,one day or another, see her face or know who is she. So much questions.......
Anyway, the story was creepy:

Spoiler:

I'm impatient to see the next episode!

I am impatient to see the OP sequence. I think this first episode is very well down. Something makes it seem higher quality compared to episodes in the first season.

Anyways, it was kinda weird and unexpecting to see Ai with a lab coat over her kimono. Usually she just comes in the end, and utter her words of doom. Looking forward to Ai in future skits lol.

Edit: Oh and I really like the ED song. Ai's (Mamiko Noto) singing is nice to hear. Looking forward to the OP also.

That was spooky. I did not see her in the OP or ED, only in the sponsors screen. And yet the sponsors screen background are usually taken from the episode itself.

*Raises hand nervously* Ahahah, only 1/2 of the image appeared during the intro sequence of episode 1... The fuzzy image of full head appeared in the sponsor screen, so I took both screenshots and combined them together.

ANN says that episode 8's title is "The Fake Jigoku Tsuushin". That sounds very interesting! While we're on the topic, does anyone still remember where the official Jigoku Tsuushin website is?

I know there are other "fake" ones too that include the fire in the beginning and ones that open 24/7.

Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori, ep. 2

Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori episode 2 screencaps and summary. I liked this episode (except for the very end). For entities in hell, Ai and her helpers sure care a lot.
