yes, hell firl does have a very sad ending, no doubt about it. and the main character, Ai, can send people to hell and it was never really a gift i guess it was always a curse. you would be able to understand that at the end of the anime. i recommend you watch it. it's REALLY good. oh, and yes, hell girl (Ai) was also human once you'll learn about her past near the end of the anime. But the ending is very sad as i've said before. i really hope you watch it :)

I've watched the first episode of this amine and it's pretty interesting. The animation is really well done and the story itself is actually quite dark. If you like darker story lines, this might be a good anime for you. I would suggest reading about it on a website or wikipedia if you want to know a bit more about it. I often do that myself if I am curious about an anime but am not ready to commit to buying it. Just be careful if you don't want to end up reading too many spoilers. You could also try to watch some clips online to see if you like it. I think you could try watching clips on youtube.

i haven't seen this anime yet. but the description says every twelve midnight you can access jigoku tsushin (hell hotline) online. if you type the name of someone you have a grudge against there, the Hell Girl will appear and she will introduce herself. she will also give you a straw doll which ties a red string around its neck. the rumors of the site became quite popular with the children and students among the cities. however, you must make a contract with the Hell Girl before sending that person to hell. the hell girl really doesn't work alone. she lives with her grand mother who gives advice to her and orders her around. other than that, she also counts on the help of her three assistants: Ichimoku Ren a young handsome guy, Hone-Onna a beautiful seductive woman, and Wanyudou, an old man who likes to wear old traditional japanese clothing, hat and red scarf. if they are not in jigoku shoujo's service. they are transformed back into three simple colored strawdolls.

I watched season one and need a refresh on seasons two and three. Anyways, season one and the concept of Jigoku Shoujo are pretty neat. It takes the format of individual stories and using revenge correspondence to get back at people, but in exchange for sending someone to damnation, one must also go to hell to at the end of their life. Towards the end of the first season, the metaplot got on my nerves due to a certain issue (but spoilers would be involved likely so I'll leave it at that).
