    Hashimoto Mayumi is a middle school who lives a pretty happy life.She is the class representative and is a pretty good student.But that is shattered as she loses charity money she was entrusted with and Kuroda Aya,a school bully,lends her some and starts torturing and blackmailing her for repayment.Even after she repays,she starts extorting more money from her.Having heard a rumor,Mayumi decides to access the "hotline to hell" to het revenge.Enma Ai ,the Jigoku Shoujo or "Hell Girl" appears in front of her and gives her a doll with a red string attached to it.She tells Mayumi that revenge will be carried out if she removes the string but ,as a price,her soul will fall into hell after her body dies.When Aya goes as far as putting her future in jeopardy,Mayumi unties the string.After that,Enma Ai and her associates take revenge for Mayumi.I can't describe the revenge in detail but I can say that Aya got a dose of her own medicine before being ferried to hell.Maymi then continues to live in happiness but for the regret that her soul will be taken to hell.In the end of the episode,a candle bearing the name "Hashimoto Mayumi" in Japanese is shown.More or less,two graves are dug when one person is cursed.This was the first short story of the series.In every episode ,a different character seeking vengeance appears and the vengence delivered fits the crime he/she commited.I would,as I said in my show review,recommend this show to any anime fan.moreless
