Back to the beginnings of Jigoku Shoujo

Instead of an episode of Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae, they showed the very first episode from the first season of Jigoku Shoujo as a New Year’s special this week. A couple of random thoughts while I watched the episode: They used to be a lot more creative when sending people to hell, although they wisely shortened it eventually as it can be quite repetitive when the viewer knows what’s going on and how it would end every single time. And if only those with burning hate can access the Jigoku Tsushin, how does it end up in search engines? Do the web crawlers harbor an unbearable grudge against the programmers for setting them on an incredibly boring task?
