Verizon Media's go90 streaming service began streaming all four seasons of the Hell Girl anime (which includes the recent Hell Girl: Fourth Twilight) on Thursday. All four seasons are available in Japanese with English subtitles.
Stories in the Hell Girl franchise usually begin with bullied or tormented people accessing the Hell Correspondence website, allowing them to submit a request to eliminate the person tormenting them. It is then that Ai Enma, the titular Hell Girl, appears, and gives these people a doll that, once pulled, sends their tormentor to Hell, where Enma and her companions proceed to enact karmic torment on the doomed person. The catch is that the person who originally sent the request will be sent to hell as well.
Studio Deen debuted the first Hell Girl television anime series in 2005. The series received two subsequent television anime sequels in 2006 and 2008, as well as a live-action television series adaptation in 2006. Funimation released the first series on DVD in North America in 2007. Sentai Filmworks released Hell Girl: Two Mirrors, the second season, on DVD in 2010. Sentai Filmworks also released Hell Girl: Three Vessels, the third season, in the same year on DVD.
The anime's fourth season, Hell Girl: Fourth Twilight, premiered on July 14. Aniplex of America streamed the anime on Crunchyroll and Amazon's Anime Strike channel as it aired in Japan.
