"Sakura Uta" A song Ai and Sentarou used to sing.

Why do lovely flowers bloom from the cherry tree?

Children of seven, waking, smile at the sun.

Why do fragrant blossoms stir in the mountain air?

Children of seven, laughing, run through the wood.

Why do crimson branches dance for the village streets?

Children of seven, singing, call down the wind.

Why do wilting flowers fall from the cherry tree?

Children of seven, dying, to wake once more.



The main protagonist of the series, who is arguably an anti-heroine as well. With long, straight black layered hair with a fringe, ruby-red eyes and pale skin, she is a spiritual entity with a tragic past, who lives in a place frozen in time as it basks in eternal sunset, along with her grandmother. There are 4 dolls visible near the computer, which are her companions. With an old computer inside their house, Ai is able to receive the names of the clients who have used the website, and delivers their revenge. She normally wears a black sailor uniform, but always wears a black kimono with floral designs when delivering the vengeance of a client. Whenever a contract is fulfilled, after the targeted person suffers the hellish hallucinations which exploit their flaws and crimes, she appears to the condemned and recites the following rite, before rowing them to eternal damnation:

"O pitiful shadow bound in darkness,
Looking down upon people,and causing them pain
A hollow soul drowning in sins..
Want to try dying this once?"

Ai started her career as the Hell Girl by her own act of vengeance on the villagers who sentenced her to a sacrificial death as part of their village's tradition. Her eyes, once a deep brown, turned red arguably at the point where Sentarou (her childhood friend and cousin who gave in under the villagers' pressure to bury her alive) gave the first shovel of soil onto her face. She broke out of her grave after a while, and took revenge on the entire village with her wrath, burning it to the ground. Her task of fulfilling other people's vengeance and ferrying people to Hell is her punishment, a task which she had performed for 400 years after that incident. A Spider, which is later revealed to be the God of Hell, gave her new life again and made a pact with her; in exchange for her immortal form, she cannot enter Hell and must remain on the shores of Hell, acting as the deliverer of people's hatred and vengeance. In order to serve these tasks, The God of Hell demanded that Ai forget her own hatred, numbing herself to the sufferings of others and becoming a mere observer of any happenings. If she hadn't this punishment, the souls of her beloved ones would have to wander in Hell forever. Having no other choice, Ai agreed with the God of Hell and became the Hell Girl.

Although this task is presented as atonement, it is unknown whether she will ever be freed of it. Wanyūdō noted she still had feelings, though, although she did not express them strongly, and it was later revealed that Ai had been ordered to close her heart by the Spider. But the experiences she has with the Shibatas made Ai express anger towards them. When enraged, Ai demonstrates the ability to hurl great blasts of energy, as well as the power to create elaborate illusions and teleport. She also has the ability to show someone the future of a grudge, as she showed Yuzuki in Episode 16 of Mitsuganae. Though, this ability may be limited to some degree, as Ai was unable to predict her confrontation with the Hell Boy, Gill du Ronfell.

In the second season, Ai becomes more expressive and shows more emotions, being more willing to interact with her "clients" and victims. She even puts up a "V for Victory" sign in front of her target by way of mocking him as he is dragged to his doom. She had also been seen reading from a fashion magazine while her compatriots watch over their client, and had showed concern towards a mother who willingly ended her life so that her daughter doesn't have to send her to Hell. As she witnesses Takuma Kurebayashi's disheartening persecution, Ai recollects her emotions pertaining to her own wrongful persecution and she defies her 'employer', the God of Hell, and becomes restored to human life, and killed shortly thereafter, when saving Takuma from his tormentors. After Ai's self-sacrifice, her body dissolves into sakura petals and drifts into the sky.

In the beginning of the third season, Ai transports another girl, Yuzuki, to a strange illusion and a vision, where Ai possessed her. Eventually, her body is later released during The Six-script Lantern ceremony in her town in which the gate to Hell is temporarily open allowing Ai to be released from her body. Ai eventually reveals to Yuzuki that she is destined to become her successor. Ai disappears without a word after Yuzuki becomes Hell Girl. Eventually she returns to take the role of Hell Girl once again in order to spare Yuzuki from being sent to Hell.

Those sound pretty awesome actually. Yeah,I think the AMVs definitely attributed to you having those dreams. But yes,it's an endless cycle of financial ruin for the site and the users,but it's not gonna go down well either way. But as for boss fights,no I don't think so. I can barely remember it anymore sad to say.

Whoa! That had to have been fantastic! Sorry it had to end,because trust me,I have dreams like that somewhat plenty of times when I do dream. But yes,my goodness YES! I'm highly fed up with these people doing this garbage,and people here are dumb enough TO buy g-cash just keep up with the inflation. But the last dream I had like that was when I was in a HUGE Squaresoft mood and my love for the good classic Final Fantasy games seeped into it and the whole dream was in classic SNES 16-bit style with the music playing in the background. Like I was actually in Final Fantasy itself.

That would be fun if life worked like that. And thank you,love. and I know right?! I just skip over everything now. It's such a nuisance to get them every single day,saying this is aspecial limited time deal and then a few hours later,that same deal is back.


"Oh pitiful shadow, lost in the darkness. Bringing torment and pain to others.Oh damned soul, wallowing in your sins. is time to die."
